Bag and Wander – Mix and Mingle

I purchased this subscription box and this review is my own opinion.  I don’t receive any compensation for any links that you click on!


This is my fourth Bag and Wander subscription box and they just keep getting better.  I signed up for a 3 month just to see how I liked it and then I made sure my subscription was going to be automatically renewed and yeah it was.  I’m hoping they have some sales on Black Friday / Cyber Monday.   As you can see it’s a nicely curated box.  The theme was Mix and Mingle and it’s right on!  I paid $80.99 US for the three month subscription and I have it shipped to my mailbox in Michigan.   So my monthly cost is $27.00.   The $4.95 shipping is included in the plans.  If you spend $29.99 in the store you also get free shipping in the US.



Cutting Board by Jonathan Alden
It looks like the cutting boards were made just for Bag and Wander as I can’t find anything exactly like it on the Jonathan Alden site. It’s a nice piece for cutting the small stuff like lemons and limes. It’s nice and thick too.  The photos don’t do this Cutting Board justice.   Retail value is $15.00


Stonewell KitchenArtichoke and Spinach Dip Mix $4.00

This happens to be a favourite in our house but we’ve only had it at restaurants so it’ll be nice to have one evening maybe with vodka drinks!

Everyone will love our Artichoke Spinach Dip Mix … there’s something about the blend of spinach and artichokes that makes this classic appetizer a crowd favorite. Try making it in a small oven-proof dish, top with a little Parmesan cheese and heat it under the broiler. Serve this Artichoke Spinach Dip Mix with slices of a crusty baguette — incredible!


Scout BooksThe Vodka Hour

I knew with the theme of mix and mingle there would be something to do with alcohol and this is a really handy small book to set aside.  Scout Books has a ton of other books that I’d like to get like the Rum one sounds good and the Vodka one is also sold in a Three Pack with Rum and Gin.  I added the other three pack with Whiskey, Tequila and Brandy to my Elfster wishlist!

With a mix of fresh twists on classics and unique modern concoctions, The Cocktail Hour: Vodka showcases over two dozen drink recipes from some of today’s best bartenders. From easy-to-make Infusions to elegant Martinis like the Guinevere, this pocket-sized volume is great for novices and seasoned mixologists alike!


Khristian A. Howell 5-Pack of Cheers Coasters $10

I think these were made exclusively for Bag and Wander because the site only sells coaster in pack of 10 and they are $16.  I bookmarked the site and several items that I want.  I also noticed that if you sign up for her mailing list you can get a 15% discount.

Double sided coasters with Cheers on one side and black with gold sparkle on the other. They are nice and thick and well made. I’ve already gone to Etsy and favored her shop and a few items. She makes trays, pillows, phone cases, cards to name a few of the other items in the shop.


Cooper & KraftFalling Leaves 4 oz Candle $7.00

I’m not a big candle person but it has a nice scent to it.  I like that once complete you can reuse the container.  They have 2 oz, 4 oz, melts, wholesale in tons of scents so check them out.  I really love small artisans.

★ About Our Products ★
All of our candles and melts are made using natural soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks, phthalate free fragrance oils and no dyes. Our tins are made of seamless aluminum and once the candle has been burned, they can be easily cleaned with soap and warm water and can be recycled or reused.


Nesta Home Pineapple Dish Towel $15

I love this towel!  I’m not a pineapple person or gold person but I love this towel.  It’s thick, I love the sparkle and it will look beautiful in my kitchen! Oh and she has pillows and art and so much more including some cute Rudolf stuff in the shop.

++ Symbolic of Hospitality and Luxury, these dish towels are screenprinted with a modern, graphic pineapple ++
Listing is for one towel. — Metallic Gold or Silver ink on a white flour sack towel.

All in all, I came up with a total of $56.00 total value of the items in this month’s Bag and Wander Mix and Mingle November box.  Seriously, you have to to try this box.  I love everything I’ve received and everything is so well curated.  Check them out at Bag and Wander

I hope you enjoyed my review of Bag and Wander.

Bag and Wander Box July Review


I Screen-Shot-2015-06-20-at-8.08.45-PMI bought a three month subscription to Bag and Wander after I cancelled a couple other boxes.  I have that Wanderlust running around in me, planning a RTW trip with my daughter for when I’m healthy and it wasn’t expensive.  $80.99 for three months and that included the shipping. $27/month but that was the box shipped.  Okay maybe that is expensive but the spoiler I loved!

This was the first spoiler a MyRuMe Baggie in Downing (grey and white) and it’s already in my purse all organized.  The top pocket is the full size of the bag and the other two are half and quarter sized of the bag.  It’s really practical and will be great for a carry on bag too.


All the goodies came in a cotton bag that would be good to stick a pair of shoes in your suitcase in.  There was also a card with a handwritten note with the value of all the items.

MyRuMe Baggie $12

Preserve Toothbrush $3 in various colours mine is blue

Ecotools Poof $2.49 in various colours mine is green (it’s a bit big for travel so I will use it for home)

Consonant Skincare All Natural foaming face wash $9.00 actually listed at $18.00 for the size we received 50ml

Plum Hill Hand and Body Wash in Coconut Lime $9.00

Bonus was a Blum Naturals Oil Absorbing Tissues $5.80 on & $11.99 on

Total Value $42.00 ($50.28 actual value)

I really like all the products I received and will use everything whether I’m using it now or in the trailer or on a Round the World trip.

Bag and Wander

To order:  go to Bag and Wander, pick one box, three month or 12 month subscription.  I believe there are still July Bags still available.  I could be wrong.  My picture from their website isn’t the greatest but I really wanted to get this review out.

The Theme for August is Let’s Picnic!  I’m really looking forward to the next Bag and Wander bag/box.

*** currently they only ship to all 50 states ***
