Q: What's in a surprise boxAsked by Rachel K., April 2019
We call it the Ready to Ship Essentials Box now. It includes items from past boxes - but it's quite similar to the subscription box: a book written by a female author, one of our exclusive book marks and 5 or 6 additional items. It's a great way to get a box right away!
Q: I know it says fiction, but can the book be tailored to our preferences?Asked by Valerie P., August 2019
Yes you may choose a genre for your novel. :)
Q: Is it possible to choose the book in the box before it’s shipped? Also do you have to pay shipping along with the monthly subscription fee?Asked by Briana A., November 2020
We send instructions for choosing your book 2 or 3 days before the box ships. We do charge for shipping (books are heavy).
Q: Does the Read and Relax box include the treat and bookmark too?Asked by Carrie V., November 2020
The Read & Relax box has a book, bookmark, candle and bath salts or scented soap. But no treats.
I gave this box as a Mother's Day gift. The recipient was thrilled every month with the thoughtful contents - the candles smelled amazing! This is a great gift to pamper someone who always takes care of others.
Obsessed!!! I absolutely LOVE my box! With everything going on in the world this was just what I needed in my life!
This box was so thoughtful! Receiving it in the mail (very fast shipping and great packaging) was such a treat. The items are all high-quality and the candle, soap, and body scrub I received smell amazing. Thank you for the treat!
I love all the items inside! The candle smells so nice- and the treats are great! The salts are much needed:) I recommend this box and am looking forward to future boxes!
I just got my first box and i love it! I got the read, relax and recharge box. I’m so excited to try out my bath salts and soap! Smells wonderful!
I just received mine today. What do we do if there was some slight damage to the box??
The blue and white box itself usually takes some small amount of damage from the shipping process - as do all shipping boxes. If any of the items inside the box are damaged, just send us a picture and we'll see about replacing them. Otherwise, in the future, if you want an undamaged blue cat box, you could email us and request a bubble wrap and poly mailer - that would protect the box as well.
I've subscribed to two of these boxes: Read, and Read & Relax. I really liked both of my first boxes and the owner provided wonderful customer service, quickly answering all of my questions. And, when the Cratejoy system messed up my order selections, the owner immediately provided a replacement of my desired selection even though it wasn't her fault.
The candle and soap both smell fabulous. And, I loved the drink and treat, too.
I get 10 book boxes per month from 5 different companies right now and this is one of my new favorites. I'm very much looking forward to the rest of my subscrition installments!
I purchased two of these book boxes for a birthday gift for my daughter and she is loving them. She has received 2 each of the Read, and the Read & Relax boxes. She says everything is lovely!!! Tasty treats and drinks, divine smelling candles and bath products, and she is very much enjoying the book selections. I so appreciate the option for her to choose her books or have them be a surprise. It is so unique for a subscription box to offer and I love that. I will definitely be renewing her subscrition once my gift has ended.
Love this box, too bad I live in a building with thieves. I will more then likely have to go back to work in the fall and someone will steal this box from my door before I get home to get it.
Love my first box and was very impressed with how fast it was shipped to me! Can’t wait to try out my snacks and bath stuff! My bath salts smell amazing can’t wait to take a bath :)
