Q: Hello, Is the Bibliophilic Excursions crate appropriate for a 13 year old girl?Asked by Shariese B., May 2019

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.

by Lee F., 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.

by Melissa A., May 2019

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!

I got my first box of the Fiction Journey, and I love it. The theme is Australia, and all of the items are really cool. I especially like the boomerang! The book looks interesting, and I'm looking forward to reading it.

I really, really, really did NOT want to enjoy this box. I went a littleeeee crazy with buying subscriptions to bring some excitement to my boring quarantine life (LOL) so I knew I’d have to cut a bunch of them. This one being one of more pricey ones that I got, I was REALLY wanting to not like it but OMGGGG I am in love! This isn’t just books but an experience. I love all the hand made products from the country of the month, the fact sheet, AND THE BOOK! I may have to switch my subscription to get both the non fiction and the fiction! You can really tell how much thought and care goes into these boxes as well. The personalized note was such a nice touch! And the complimentary bookmarks! Thank you so much, you’ve definitely won me over!!

I received the Iceland box as my first one - and it's fantastic! This box showed thoughtful, excellent curation. I've been introduced to a Nobel Prize-winning fiction writer (Halldor Laxness) whom I didn't know before and also enjoyed my non-fiction selection about Icelandic folk tales. The beauty item was a moss salt scrub - very nice and effective. I was thrilled with the jewelry - a rune necklace and a key chain with a troll figure made from lava stone. Also, a lovely book mark with lava stone and a metal Thor figurine. To wrap it all up, interesting and tasty small batch chocolates from Omnom. I do feel the shipping was high, but the overall box was great and I'm looking forward to the next one.

Updated Review: I was initially confused about receiving an older box, but the seller cleared this up with a response! I’ll enjoy reading Maya Angelou & the new author included in this box. The handmade trinkets and journal are thoughtful additions. Thank you ☺️

We offer something very special for a subscription box service- we guarantee shipment within 5 business days. We can do this by keeping a few of our older boxes on hand. After the first box, we catch our customers up with the new box of the month. We do keep a record of our customers with each box they receive and their individual preferences. As you noticed, we choose quality contents and add thoughtful details like a hand-written thank you note and details about our suppliers. Our selections are never random but part of our thoughtful selection process. We do have a customer or two who have preferred to...

I loved my Ladies Who Lunch Box so much. The items were lovely and on-theme and I am already enjoying the book. It made me feel joyful an special, in a time in which it was really needed. I wish I could get this box every week, instead of every month.

I haven't read the book or used the cocktail items yet (due to being in the middle of a book and on a diet at the moment), however, this was the cutest subscription box yet. Not only was there a lot of care put into the box and items, but there was a hand written thank you note for purchasing the box!!! It's so rare to get something like that these days. The book and cocktail set were all in theme, and just happened to be lavender which is especially relaxing to me. Only one wish, that they added some recipe cards for proposed cocktail with measurements. I know I can look it up and the bottle had something short on it, but I think it would have gone a long way to get a recipe card for something that I can just make on the spot.

I got my first box and love everything in it! There were 4 or 5 items that were very high quality; not little plastic things but crafted items that were beautiful.And I can't wait to read the book.
The country is one I don't know much about so am eager to learn more.
I am not telling which country because this is the current box and don't want to cause a spoiler but if you are wondering if this box is worth it the answer is YES.
In a time where we really can't travel physically this is the next best thing

Just received my first Signature Journey box, and it's fantastic! I love all the items and I look forward to reading the books by new-to-me authors. Many of my students are from Guatemala and I look forward to learning a little bit more about their home country.

Denmark

Denmark is known for extraordinarily happy citizens so we’ve chosen two books we think will bring a little Danish delight to your life! Our fiction selection is Often I am Happy and our non-fiction selection is The Little Book of Hygge. Customers also received items influence by the concept of Hygee including a tea towel with a design of Kronborg Castle; a cheeseboard; a nightlight; a collage featuring a famous Dane; black licorice; and a cozy pair of socks.

Solar System

Solar System

Every now and then here at Bibliophilic Excursions, we select a special edition location. This year, NASA reached a milestone when two Americans, tasked with replacing a power controller, ventured out of the International Space Station: the astronauts, Christina Koch and Jessica Meir, became the first to take part in an all-female spacewalk! In honor of this historic achievement, we’ve connected with other women-owned small businesses to curate a solar system excursion!

Iceland

Iceland

This month, we're headed to one of the literary favorites of the world- Iceland. Our literature selections include a novel from Nobel Prize-winning Halldor Laxness and a very special collection of myths dating back to the days when Iceland was settled by the Vikings. As always, we're also including handmade gifts from locals, and of course, chocolate!
