The July Hamptons Lane theme was “Gatsby Cocktail Party!” See our full review of this box here, or enter to win one below!


We did pop open the box – we usually receive reviewer boxes in the mail – they contain the same items but aren’t decorated like subscriber ones, so we wanted to take a few photos of the box presentation in case you’re interested in this subscription as a gift – it’s quite nice!


When I was posting the spoilers for the July box, I noticed the add-on items.

My husband said why don’t we own a champagne sabre? I have to admit – I emptied out my referral credits for this particular review! This particular item is actually available for $179 from the manufacturer (free shipping), which I didn’t realize when I had ordered it. Hamptons Lane has a summer sale going on right now – 15% off shop items with code summer15, although I don’t think it would apply to this, because you can’t get it in the shop.


Fox Sciabola del Sommelier – Bronze Handle: Comes in a nice wooden box and is made in Italy.


It comes with a full instruction sheet, and there’s lots of examples on YouTube.  IMG_6974

We took it out for some photos – it’s really beautiful (and is now stored safely even though it has a nice stand, it’s not a safe item with children around, for obvious reasons).


The handle is absolutely gorgeous, although you may not want the tassel attached until you’re really good at it.


That is one serious blade. It’s totally insane!

While we absolutely love this item, we didn’t like that it was priced more than the the US distributor’s price. We love Hamptons Lane style on this one though (what’s more over the top than a champagne sabre?!) – and the boxes themselves are still a great value and nice addition to your kitchen. We are giving away the extra July box (not the sabre!). Enter below!

    I would drink soooo much champagne. It’d be glorious.

  • Nataile Brown

    I’d do a 1930’s theme with everyone wearing white and I’d decorate with lots of green & gold. We’d drink fruity wine spritzers too. Fun!

  • siegalpaula

    Anything glittery and gold

  • jenny s

    Oh my goodness I just had to click when I saw the sword in the picture. I thought, how could this possibly be an add-on to a household box? WOW. Impressive. So many kudos to you and your family for sheer awesomeness for buying this!!! This may be my favorite review ever!

    I’d have tons of champagne and teach everyone to Charleston at my Gatsby party!

  • Cordelia

    At my Gatsby summer party we will be having Lavender Smash cocktails. We may even try the Gin Rickey. I love this theme for a party. Brandy can I borrow your saber???? I’ve got to get me one of those.

    Uhm I had no idea what a champagne saber was but now I think I need to file that under the gift for someone who already has everything. LOL but really how cool is that? Such a great idea.
