Craftly July 2016 Subscription Box Review and Coupon

Craftly is a fun unisex subscription that works fantastically as a gift for just about anyone. I imagine this would be a very welcome box of "happy mail" for a college student considering the unique range of items that are included. From my experience, it has a range of useful, fun and even some silly.

Keep in mind this is not a sample subscription. You'll get full size, high quality items ranging from handcrafted goods from independent artists or snacks and tech products from small businesses and brands. The variety is very wide ranging and unisex so everyone can get a dose of happy mail!

The Cost: $25/month

What You Get:  Every month, you'll receive a delivery of 4-5 full and deluxe size items in art, tech, snacks, grooming products, home goods and more!

TRNDLabs Coal Organic Earbuds- Manage your calls and your music with these comfy earbuds. I like the flat cord. I tend to hoard (and hide) earbuds because my husband is a whirling vortex that sucks them out into the aether. How he manages to lose every.single.pair is beyond me. So I have a secret stash that these will go into. Yes, I do reluctantly give a pair to him every now and then but I always make sure I have enough for me for when mine fritz out.
Value: $19
Eir NYC Surf Mud + Zinc- This is an all natural sunblock for your face and hair. It has zinc, chocolate and antioxidants in it. It's made with coconut oil and cocoa butter with beeswax and tea tree oil. This is some nice stuff! I don't think I'll put it on my face because coconut oil is comedegenic (sadly) but I bet it'd be awesome in my hair and elsewhere.
Value: $6
Dried & True Ginger Teriyaki Beef Jerky- This is a find! It's amazing! So perfectly textured and very flavorful. It's made with real ginger, pineapple juice and sesame seeds. Yuuumm! Also, they have a subscription for their jerky! Use code CRAFTLY to get double your first order! I might have to do this, that's how tasty it is. (Hm... I just tried to use that code and it doesn't work...)
Value: $7.50
Emoji, Inc. Emoji Sticker Pack- I'm not a huge user of emojis. Okay, I lied. That's not true. I use the smiley face :D all the time. This is six pages of stickers, too. Loooots! I also use this one: >.< But it apparently doesn't mean what I think it does. I've always used it as sort of an "oh, no, I can't believe it type of 'ermahgerd'" sort of thing but google Hangouts makes it an angry face. This set includes 288 emojis so whichever one is your favorite is bound to be there. The stickers are pretty big, too. Nickel sized.
Value: $5

VERDICT: This was a really great box! Equal parts fun, useful and "hmm, what awesome thing can I do with this." Sometimes one of the best things about subscriptions like these is that they get you to try things or use things you normally would never encounter. Like emoji stickers. I'm already thinking about how to use them as part of a birthday card message.
