Our CEO did a naughty thing this month. He kidnapped Santa Claus and brought him to Shades Monthly HQ to fill stockings with crisp $2 bills and ship boxes. Needless to say, Mr.Kringle thought he was funny and instead of money he gave everyone coal in their stockings with a note. He threw in a couple of candy canes to sweeten the deal but his dirty trick was played. New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card and Contest Card to close out the year and the December Box! Thanks for a great year and keep the change you filthy animals! Next year we aim higher!
November | Thanksgiving Edition
The box was Thanksgiving inspired and came with a bottle of Shades Spray to keep your shades looking fresh. The spray has a cleaning cloth included but you can also use the microfiber bag that comes with each pair of shades. New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card and Contest Card to finish up the November Box. Thank you all for your continued support and we hope you were able to get together with the ones you love this Thanksgiving!
October | Halloween Edition
Our primary focus is on the shades, but this month they seem to get buried in all the extra stuff that we packed into it! For starters, we have to pass out some candy as it's just necessary for a Halloween Theme. So before boxing the shipments this month we cut off all of our employee's fingers and threw them in a few of the bags along with other candies. Some of our members will get tricked while some will get treated. They'll finger it out! A bag of Pop Rocks is in every box as well along with some Spooky Specks that make bright lights on decorations look like skulls, pumpkins or bats. New Shades & a Blood-Spattered Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card, Contest Card and a Handle Card for the Spooky Specs to bury the October Box. Happy Halloween from Shades Monthly!
September | Black & White Edition
Back in July Members presented future them ideas to us through the Shades Survey. In August Members voted on those ideas in the Shades Survey and the Black & White Theme won with the most votes! Everyone received a Black & White branded visor clip along with a Black & White snap case to keep those shades protected. New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card and a Contest Card to finish up the September Box.
August | Eclipse Edition
This months box was themed for the Solar Eclipse on August 21st. We thought it would be cool to provide Two Eclipse Viewing Shades so that you and a friend could properly check out the solar eclipse together. New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card, Contest Card and Handle Card to round out the August box.
July | Hot Dog Edition
July is National Hot Dog month. Naturally, we thought it would be best to set you up with a few things to help you get your drink on and build up your appetite. The keychain provided is a bottle opener and a flashlight. It says "Pop Bottles & Keep it Lit." The keychain is complemented nicely with a Shades Monthly Koozie to keep that freshly popped bottle ice cold. New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card and a Contest Card.
June | Merica Edition
We themed the June box for the 4th of July. We gave our members a Bonus Pair of shades along with their regular shades. This Merican themed box came complete with a Stars and Striped Microfiber Bag, Bonus Shades, New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card, Contest Card and Handle Card for the Bonus Shades.
May | Mexico Edition
We didn't want you to miss out on the festivities of Cinco de Mayo so we sent the May box late to the fiesta! We tossed in a travel bottle of sunscreen to protect your skin and a packet of chiclets for you to chew on the way out the door. New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card and a Contest Card to round out this Edition.
April | Earth Edition
This months box was themed for Earth Day on April 22nd. A tube of Lip Balm was provided in each box to keep those lips moist! New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card and a Contest Card. The two smile cards were for use with the Contest Card and contest.
March | Unlucky Edition
Because April Fools day is on the April first, we had to get the box to members before then. We sent a pair of Bonus Shades with no lenses that were meant to be a joke only we didn't come out and say it. There was a scavenger hunt on the cards that led to a hidden card in the box that revealed the true identity of the Bonus Shades and that they were a prank pair. We also revealed the true Bonus Shades would come in the June box. The March Box also included a New pair Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card, Contest Card, Answer Card and Handle Card for the Bonus Shades.
February | Lucky Edition
A bit of luck for you in the shape of a box that you paid for. Inside this St. Patrick themed box we have a necklace shot glass for those of you that do that sort thing and a plastic luck medallion that will find its way right to your trash. With New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card and a Contest Card to match the occasion.
January | Love Edition
Our Valentines day themed box arrived in January this year so that each member would receive their personalized valentines from us before February 14th. Everyone got a few kisses from us and a Fun Dip Valentine from our CEO Jay BauX. New Shades & Microfiber Bag along with a Theme Card and a Contest Card.
