My Ireland Box - Subscription box review

The owners of the recently launched My Ireland Box reached out to me about reviewing their April box and I jumped at the chance! As I explain in the video below, Ireland was the first country I visited outside of North America. I was lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks there and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I loved how outgoing and approachable everyone I met was, and I love how the Irish in general seem to have such great pride in their country. (One of my friends from the class I took, Sinead, took me on a day-long driving tour of Dublin to show me the rest of the city that the tourists generally don’t see. She felt that I couldn’t leave without seeing all of Dublin. It was a wonderful day even if I did feel car sick on account of the twisty curvy roads.) I think that sense of pride in Ireland is where My Ireland Box comes from, which aims to bring exposure to Ireland’s talented artists.

Let me tell you – they more than succeeded with the box I received! I know I’ve been hard on some of the “gift” boxes because sometimes I just don’t see the point of the items that are being sent, but I don’t feel that way about My Ireland Box at all. I love every item I received.

Let’s check it out:

"Gra" Pink Heart Coin Pouch from Placed

This Pink Heart Coin Pouch from Placed might be one of my favorite items I’ve received in a subscription box that’s not a beauty product. “Grá,” means love in Gaelic. This is immediately going into my purse.

 

I Heart Ireland Tote from Olyart received in the April My Ireland Box

I love this tote. Normally I don’t love totes, but I think it is my own fondness for Ireland and the cute graphic that makes this one a star in my book. The tote is from Olyart.

 

Nautical Print from Deirdre McKenna

This Nautical print is from Deirdre McKenna. I’m going to add it to another print that I picked up on my last visit to Ireland, to start a mini Irish art collection.

Porcelain Dove Pin from Clare Jordan Ceramics

I realized as I opened this box that I don’t own any pins or brooches. This Porcelain Dove Pin seems like a great way to start a pin collection. It was handmade by Clare Jordan Ceramics.

Sinead Lough ceramic bird

I know I said above that the heart pouch was my favorite item, but I think this little bird ornament from Sinead Lough Pottery is tied for first. I LOVE this bird, and need to find a place to hang it in my home or office asap. It’s really an adorable piece.

As I said above, I am definitely a fan of My Ireland Box! As far as gift subscriptions go, I absolutely think this one is tops.

A subscription to My Ireland Box costs 30 Euro, plus an additional 5 Euro for shipping. Right now that translates to about $46 per month. This is not the cheapest box, but I thought the contents justified the price. (The retail value of the box I received was about $72.)
