The May 2020 box is Germany.
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.
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!
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.
All destinations are wonderful and complete with variety of unique and authentic gifts from that country! The recent box of Australia with the hand painted boomerang was an exciting gift to own! Thank you for keeping my around the world curiously alive!
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 my May 2020 box today and loved the curation of the box. The books were also a great choice, sadly, I'm already read one of them but that's because it was a highly rated book. Not there fault they included it, in fact is shows the quality of books they include in this subscription. I do have to add that 3 items arrived to be broken. This was a real bummer because they items they included in the box were beautiful. Items that I would use that really represent the country. I was especially excited for one of the items because when I visited the country 6 years ago, I regretted not purchasing one for myself. I've contacted customer service about the items being broken and I'm waiting for a response.
Note: Exceptional customer service. The items were replaced and sent. I received them today. They even sent a book and sweet note for my troubles. Updated review to 5 stars!
This was my first Bibliophilic Excursions box - and mine was a trip to Ghana - a country I know next to nothing about. I can't wait to read the books! I did not know that Maya Angelou had lived in Ghana. It will be interesting to read about her life there. All of the items were great - I love journals, so I will definitely use mine and the artifacts from Ghana were very interesting and colorful - they will be displayed in my home office/music room and - how can you go wrong with shea butter soap scented with lavender. I loved the box - can't wait til the next one!
I was really impressed with my first box.
I am extremely pleased with Bibliophilic Excursions. I received my books and goodies on time as promised. I choose the Signature Journey Box and I am excited to read both of the books that were sent to me. The other items that they sent appear to be thoughtfully chosen and they are of a good quality. The box is personalized with a hand written note and packaged nicely.
I also ordered the Grab Bag box and I was very impressed with this box too. Once again, they sent quality items along with the book. I am thrilled with this subscription and I am so glad that I found Bibliophilic Excursions!!
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 want to CANCEL this subscription as a gift. It was reported that something within the box was putrid and the recipient threw it all out. She got a pair of socks, bookmark, matchbook with bone, soapstone animal of some sort, 2 French crepes, mushroom from Mexico, another box of rancid items. This is not what a mostly home bound 80 year would like nor I. Please give me a refund. I will pay for the 1 box but not the other 2. Please adjust credit. What a disappointment!!!
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.

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.
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!
