Q: Is there any way to get the May-June box/past boxes? Or a way I can find out the title of the current book? I'm super hesitant to step outside my usual genres, but this looks pretty incredible!Asked by Alyssa D., July 2021
We will be adding past boxes to our shop in the near future, and we do have extras of May/June box that we will be posting very soon. We have just been focused on getting Box 2 prepared to ship it the week of July 19th. You are welcome to email directly for the title. We are hesitant to post it here because we do not want to spoil folks who want it to be a surprise. Look forward to hearing from you!
UPDATE: I have received all five of the released boxes so far (since the beginning) and it is my most loved book subscription. You honestly cannot beat the quality of book choices and gift curation.
Holy cow, I loved my first box SO much! I've received over 100 (no joke) book subscription boxes. This box is worth every single penny!!! The connection of meaningful gifts to the book was spectacular. And, while I really like a couple other brands as well, the quality of these gifts is so much better than other boxes of this style. Do yourself a favor and grab this subscription. You'd have to be insane not to love it!
Box #2-#5 were also great. Looking forward to continuing this subscription!
This book box is my absolute favorite. I so look forward to receiving it each time it ships!! The care taken in gift selection and wrapping feels so personal. It’s truly like getting a gift box in the mail from your best friend. ❤️❤️❤️
I am not too impressed with the book selection. But the thought and the effort the company puts in is 5 points and above. The books are not bad by any means, but no more then 3.5. Above all, the communication is best. The other book boxes I've tried has not been as diligent at reaching their customers as this company.
Hands down the best book box I subscribe to. The gifts are thoughtful, totally relevant to the book, well made (not cheap junk at all), and actually useful and/or beautiful! This is the best of gifts-with-books boxes out there!
This is EXACTLY what I was looking for in a book box! A great book, lots of little surprises to open when I am reading, and the quality of everything surpasses what I had expected. I feel like it was a gift from a dear friend who knows me very well, and took the time to thoughtfully choose every element. I can't wait for further boxes to arrive!
I subscribe to a lot (currently 8) of book boxes, and I’m very impressed by my first Booked Traveler box. The book was gripping, and the souvenirs definitely added to the reading experience. Additionally, I am very impressed with how functional the souvenirs are and know I’ll be enjoying and using all of them regularly for a long time.
I just got my first box, and spent all day with it. And I LOVED it. I'm so impressed with it. The thoughtfulness of the souvenirs and their relevance to the story are just so good - these aren't just random items that are easy or convenient to find. They are items that represent meaningful moments/things in the story. They are also useful and things I was very glad to receive. They're not just going to sit in a box and do nothing. And the quality is so much better than in some other book/gift boxes. The choice of book was wonderful. The packaging was simple, and maybe not as fancy as other boxes, but it was pretty. I'd rather have higher quality souvenirs than a fancy box. So thank you so much, Booked Traveler team! I cannot wait until the next box!!!
This is awesome! The price point is definitely higher than other gift book boxes (Once Upon A Book Club, Down The Rabbit Hole) BUT the gifts are absolutely wayyyy higher quality so it really is worth it!
The book I got was The Mermaid From Jeju, I wasn’t a huge fan, a bit slow for me but I look forward to seeing future picks!
I would definitely recommend others to give this one a try! It’s only once every other month which also helps justify the expense.
Only feedback I’d give is to put sticky notes or such when in the book we should open the gifts. I put my own in there :)
Thank you for putting together such a fun book box!!!
This was a delightful surprise! Everything was unexpectedly lovely.
