Q: Hello, Is the Bibliophilic Excursions crate appropriate for a 13 year old girl?Asked by Shariese B., May 2019
Not if you actually want them to receive the gift! my first shipment came and then none of the others I paid for. I contacted the seller numerous times and finally had to contact cratejoy refunded my full order because even they could not get a response from the seller. you would do better to find a different box that will actually deliver and respond to issues.
Yes, it is appropriate and also a great idea! I subscribe to it and I have given both individual boxes as well as subscriptions as gifts. My 13 year old son does the unboxing with me because he likes the concept and product. The theme of the box and the extras make them quite enjoyable. Some of our unboxing videos are online, but we don’t always post. I hope this is helpful!
It probably would be if they were reliable. I received two boxes that were very nice but they never shipped the third box, which they billed me for, and they were getting ready to bill me for the fourth box. I tried contacting them three times with no response. Cratejoy refunded the one month I was charged for. The concept is really cool, but I’d stay away from them if I were you.
I did receive my first box and it was super cool! I had a question about it so I message the seller and did receive a reply. I followed up with another question to which I received no response. I let that go and waited for my second shipment. It never came. I messaged the seller 3 times about my missing shipment and got absolutely no reply. Currently I am working with cratejoy to get a refund. In the meantime, I definitely got charged $136 for three shipments and only received one of them. Fortunately I listened to the advice of another reviewer who also had a bad experience and I put it on my credit card. So if cratejoy doesn't fix the issue next week, I will be getting a refund from my credit card. So while the Box itself was really cool, I strongly encourage everyone to find a different box shipment. Since this seller cannot be bothered to actually ship the boxes after you pay for them. Which kind of makes me question the quality of what was actually in my box. It looked cool, but can you trust it when the seller is obviously deceitful? Which is what I would call taking money for three months of shipments and then refusing to send anything past the first month. Fortunately, my credit card has great customer service.
I received a child book, the other items may have cost $20 and didn't feel anything like an excursion. I have contacted three times now to cancel my subscription, instead, it was renewed and no one has contacted me yet.
Didn’t get a box for about two and a half months and couldn’t get email responses. Then I received two boxes in a single day. Items were broken and didn’t make much sense for the destination. Skip this one. Coffee and a Classic or The Wordy Traveler are both much better (and reliable) choices!
I enjoyed receiving the box when they were shipped. I did not get a May or June box and contacted the seller multiple times with no response. Finally, I contacted cratejoy who also did not get a response from the seller. Cratejoy ended up refunding my money for the boxes I did not receive. The seller did eventually get back to me on the same day Cratejoy refunded my money and told me there was an issue obtaining the items for the May box and that it would be sent soon. I would avoid this box as the seller is not reliable at responding to emails
Best gift ever! I recently received the Denmark-themed box and was blown away by the beautiful books and all of the cool and unique items that were curated - from Hygge inspired socks, pancake ball recipe on a beautiful trivet, a gorgeous tea towel of Kronborg castle, a porcelain nightlight and many more prints and bookmarks. In addition, I loved the personalized note with fun historical facts about the country.
I see a few negative reviews here and just want to say that the Seller very transparently explained that the issue was with suppliers in the applicable country, but those have been resolved, so if you are looking for a truly memorable bookish travel experience, then this is definitely for You!
They worked with me to get a custom box for my friend’s surgery AND were so great about getting it delivered exactly on the date I requested. I’ve had two of these as gifts and they are so much better than flowers or candy. It’s so fun to open them. I’ll always send in place of flowers.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS! I received two boxes, was charged for the third, but it never shipped. Contacted seller three times with no response. Contacted Cratejoy and The seller wouldn’t respond to them either. They refunded the cost of the third box I didn’t get within just a few days.
I received the first box after I ordered in April but nothing after that. I tried multiple times to contact the seller as did cratejoy support. Thanks to cratejoy for refunding me the unused portion of my subscription. I have subscribed to lots of boxes and this is the first time I have had this experience.
I sent this box to a friend after surgery. She was so thrilled that she cried with joy. She told me it made her feel special during a fearful time. It was something different from your average get well flowers. The signature gift box was filled with an interesting book and other trinket items that let my dear friend know I wished her happiness and health! I would give this box 10 stars and will certainly make additional purchases.
