Our first glimpse inside the Culture Carton for December

what's in the culture carton subscription box

Everything that we received in our December “Watch Box” themed Culture Carton Box. We have to say this is our absolute favorite box we’ve ever received from them!

So what is all this stuff?

The reverse details each of the items we received along with retail values, as well as a little bit about the theme!

Minute Mixology Craft Cocktail Mixer

This package contains 8 single serve packets of coconut, mint and lime flavored mix to create a coconut mojito.

All you’ll need to add to create your tasty adult beverage is rum, tonic water and ice. Shake it up and voila!

The Martian by Andy Weir

We haven’t read this book but saw the movie and thought it was amazing. A stoic story of a man alone in space – think Castaway in the middle of our solar system! So, if history speaks for anything the book should be even more amazing than the move was! We’re totally excited to read this!

I Love Ugly Charlie Watch

Um… yeah. Probably one of the coolest items we’ve ever gotten in a box. This New Zealand brand creates high quality watches and the “Charlie” is perfect for the minimalist. Made with Swiss Made Movement and a mineral glass face.. you have to love the simple yet elegant lines of this one.

One of our favorite features is the little quote etched in the bottom of the band!

We loved this watch and thought for sure because Mr. Not a Tree doesn’t wear watches this would be ours… (we were SO excited)

Surprise, surprise when he actually liked it enough to wear it! I guess that speaks to how beautiful it is!

Biltong Seasoned Dry Beef

This 2 ounce package of dried beef seems like it will be a lot like beef jerky but it’s so different. Made with grass fed meat and containing over 12 grams of protein a serving this sugar and preservative free beef snack is moist and delicious. Great for hikers and as an addition to all sorts of meals!

The largest difference comes from Biltong’s texture. It’s soft because instead of being made with heat like beef jerky – it’s made with air, so it retains much of the beefs moisture. It looks more like meat and has a lot less salt as well so it’s a much healthier alternative!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Culture Carton Box is an incredible box for the worldly, cultured guys out there and this month was FANTASTIC. The presentation is great, everything arrives perfectly. The quality is amazing. I really love that they source some lesser known, craft brands and there are always such incredible leather goods! And curation. This watch box included a $125 watch so building an entire box around such a high priced item sounds like it might be hard but they pulled it off and brought together an excellent bunch of items!
