I had such a great time opening this box!
The book they picked for me was a very good criminal trial thriller — always a fav.
The candle they included smelled so good and was so cute — it looked just like a coffee cup!
I also received a Moscow Mule mug, some great coffee, a pretty bookmark, and a reading light.
All of the gifts were wrapped individually with such care; it really made opening everything so fun.
They also included a personalized, handwritten note, which definitely made the box seem specially curated to the receiver.
Thanks for the great experience! :)
I've done a terrible job showcasing the items included but unpacking this was a delight! The body scrub (Great Gatsby - pear champagne scented) smells DELICIOUS. The magents are pretty as is the bookmark. The adult coloring book is cute. The book included is not something I would have selected myself but I am interested to delve in. This is exactly what I was hoping for with the book selection! The tea cup!!!!! I am in love. Both teas included sound amazing. This is beyond my expectations. A handwritten note was included and appreciated. I feel like this was packed with care and intent. I will keep this subscription going as long as I can!
This box is very well put together, the book choice is spot on, and the small business items featured are great quality. The handmade bookmarks and handwritten card are a very nice touch!
I love it, thank you, I read the back of the book, its intresting, the candle smells omg, honey sticks, lip balm (gum smell), but i have to got to my sister's because I don't have for the K-cups, but is ok I already want to try the hazelnut coffee
I love that they are gently used books so I feel like I'm helping the environment. And the books have been in genres I really enjoy. Plus the other little trinkets are so cool
Part one of my birthday gift to myself arrived today! The book blurb sounds like it's right up my alley. Also included: a super cute mug, 2 packets of hot chocolate, and little accessories. I got a pretty stretchy bookmark (see it on the book? it's great, never gonna lose my page because the bookmark fell out again), a sachet of nice smelling lavender wrapped up in a patterned cloth with a little key tie around it, some cute little rocks that can decorate my bookshelves, a lovely-smelling candle, and some more bookmarks that you can color with colored pencils. Overall, super happy with my box and I can't wait for next month!
Wonderful box, one of my favorites
I am really pleased with this box. The books I've received so far have been outside of my usual reading genres and I'm really happy with them. I also enjoy the bookmark and personal note I receive each month.
This is a wonderful box and is definitely worth the money!
I loved that they added a personal note in the box! I haven’t tried the coffee yet but I did enjoy the box
I gave Books & Treasures a pretty specific list of what I did and did not want, and they absolutely nailed the first delivery! Their selection for me left me feeling surprised and delighted, and the packaging was fun. Good job!
While Blood and Money (Thomas Thompson) is not something I would have purchased for myself, I have to say I'm rather liking it. Ive also enjoyed my coffee selection, in my new (previously loved) coffee cup drinking it while reading my new book with my rose scented candle from Forevershine. My new book mark is marking my spot as well as holding the personally written and signed card from Sarah and Rebecca. I gifted my chapsticks to my grandson, not because I wanted to but because he begged! Thanks so much for my treasures. Cant wait for my 2nd box! Warm hugs from Minnesota, Robin
I received the book in excellent shape!!
I like the first book and am looking forward to the next one! I really like the bookmark!!
Thank you so much for this box crate box. I would recommend this to any one who likes to read.
I absolutely love the boxes I’ve received. I had to make a special request because of health concerns and my boxes were beautifully prepared and my needs considered. I ordered the deluxe box and it was always packed with delightful extras. I order infrequently because shipping to my country is as expensive as the box itself. If I could justify the cost I’d order one every month! For content, this is the best subscription I’ve ever had!
Book was not to my taste at all. It was in pretty rough shape with lots of tears to the cover as well as a lot of writing/highlighting in the book. Ultimately paid $12($4 shipping) for a roughly used book that was $14 new. The book mark was cute, but not something really usable, and caused damage to the book as well. Not a typical place across the page bookmark, but a circular elastic that doesn’t sit flush by any means. Shipping was a bit too steep to make me consider continuing the subscription. Was over all very disappointed.
These books are gifts for my mother who wants to display them more than read them. I wrote very - VERY - specific instructions about the type of books to be selected: namely, vintage with attractive covers; the older, the better. Based on my description, I expected nothing with a print date after 1950... was hoping for older. The first book to arrive was printed in the 90's with a very plain cover and modern-looking dustjacket; no character whatsoever. I don't think whomever picked it out read my instructions at all.
Thank you for your review Chris! Vintage books (as said when you select that option under genre) are pre 2000 and dated 2000 and older. Vintage is defined as anything 20 years old or older. I did not see you specify 50s or older books in your comments to us. It was also not told to us that they were to be only display items as opposed to their intended use. However you did say she may display them and we chose Wallis by Anne Edwards because we felt the cover was pretty, it is a vintage book, and it is in line with one of your genre choices (historical fiction). However an attractive cover is a subjective thing as everyone has a different...
The box was put together with so much care, and even included a handwritten card!! I loved that it felt like opening a gift, and I was supporting many small businesses as well! Book selection was perfect.
Absolutely fantastic! I have a little bit of a subscription box addiction, so I've tried a lot of different boxes. This one is hands-down in my top 5. I got my first box a couple of weeks ago and it contained a book with a beautiful bookmark, handmade soap, postcards, a mug, and a bath bomb. All of the items are wonderful! There was a little mix up with what genre I wanted (totally my fault) and the hot cocoa was missing so Sarah sent out another book and hot cocoa right away. I just can't say enough about how awesome this box is and how fantastic the customer service is. I love it so much I decided to sign up for a book-only subscription as well so that I can get 2 books each month.
I love the gift wrapping, handwritten (and drawn) card and bookmark! The book isn’t one I would have chosen, but, to me, that is the fun of letting someone else choose, and I am looking forward to reading it.
I ordered the subscription for my mom as a gift. She loves to read and she loves getting a monthly gift in the mail and so far it has been books we have never read before but she enjoys them! She loves the personal handwritten note and book marks!
Thank you--I Just got my first book/bookmark delivery today and it's the highlight of my week. I'm a sucker for curated anything, but especially books and I couldn't be more thrilled. I know nothing about the author or the book itself, but I can't wait to read it and I know it was picked with me in mind. From the way it was wrapped, to the handwritten card and handmade bookmark, there's a lot of thought and heart invested in each box and it's going to give me joy far beyond what I spent.
Y'all are a treasure.
Completely impressed! They picked out an amazing book and gifts that are perfect just for me!!
They really do a phenomenal job of searching for books you would like. I feel like these books were picked with care. You have to appreciate that. The bookmarks they make are cute too. I do not regret my subscription.
I would just like to say how helpful I have found Sarah. She returned me emails and sorted my queries very fast and efficient. Thank you
Adorable and sweet greeting card with first order and really love my book and bookmark ❤️
I ordered this as a gift for my daughter and let me tell y’all it is awesome each item was individually wrapped all cute and they even had a Christmas card saying Marry Christmas I love you from mom. My daughter loves to read and she is going to love this. She can read and drink the hot. Coco after Christmas dinner. Subscribe now guys don’t waste anymore tiy
