I love getting mail. Like, really love it. (And I honestly ask, who doesn’t?)
Subscription boxes are guaranteed mail. Guaranteed FUN mail.
No bills, no annoying flyers for the neighbourhood dental clinic. Subscription boxes are something you’ve signed up for that you want to receive. You wait eagerly for them, checking the mailbox every hour until they arrive.
If you tour around CrateJoy, you’ll very quickly discover how many different kinds of subscription boxes exist. I’ve written about how amazing I think bookish subscription boxes are three times (here, here, and here). And finally, FINALLY, I get to experience one myself.
My husband gifted me a subscription to Novel Tea Club for Christmas.
As soon as the box arrived, I knew I had to do something special to celebrate it (and share it with you!). So, I made my first YouTube video. Watch my unboxing of the December Novel Tea Club YA box below!
The box was beautifully packaged, with pretty, fluffy crinkled paper bits cushioning the lovely things inside.
I got the Young Adult box this month and adore it. Inside, I found:
- Sugar Plum Fairy Tea by Tantalizing Tea
- Snowflake coasters
- Nightmare Before Christmas peppermint bark by The Truffle Cottage
- Christmas Story print by Khelsie Powers
- Time for Another Adventure sticker by Quotation Park
- Book: Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst
This box was festive and fun, without being too kitschy. I can’t wait to read this book. As soon as I stopped filming, I realized how many things I’ve heard about this book. I’m eager to form my own opinion of it. Overall, I’m delighted with this gift and am definitely looking forward to what’s to come in next month’s box.
