One of my absolute favorite subscriptions. There are a few book boxes that have you open gifts at certain parts of the story but what sets this one apart is the quality of the books themselves. They deliver their promise on dark storylines so if that’s your jam, this is the box for you. The two I’ve received thus far have been excellent, and coincidentally are based around books I likely wouldn’t have selected myself so they were also wonderful surprises. The gifts are often useful and certainly facilitate engagement with the events in the story. Shoutout also to the attention to detail in the packaging - each month’s stickers, colors, and general designs fit the books so well. Bravo!
This subscription is by far the most well-curated and personal one I receive! I'm on my third month now and don't see myself unsubscribing any time soon. Every item is chosen and packaged with care, the colors and selections fit perfectly with each monthly theme, the box as a whole is an INCREDIBLE value, and... best of all... Kat puts so much of herself into it that you can truly feel the love. She describes every item in detail, always includes at least one ritual that she has written herself or in collaboration, and so many things come from her own garden and her own handiwork. I am truly astounded by how much work must go into this and blown away by the quality, thought, and sentiment present in every aspect of this box. It brings me so much joy every month!
I absolutely love this box. I've received two so far and am so excited to be a consistent subscriber. The February shipment was late due to COVID and the west coast wildfires, but my experience with Erika and Yvette has been very positive. They have been so patient with my questions even though the delays are completely beyond their control. The wait has been completely worth it! Very impressed with not only the selections of the books (these people know good writing!) but also the items that come in the box. The descriptions of all the items is wonderful too as it give you context for where they all came from and who the authors are. I love that Erika and Yvette do their best to include local products from small businesses that speak to the message of the box, which as I see it is bringing cultures together in conversation.
