Such a fun family activity. We loved getting stuff from different states and how unique each of the selections were.
I enjoyed the curation and the overall box. Unfortunately, I received a candle & pre-broken hard candy that shipped from Florida to California and the candle was melted & the hard candy fused together in a big hard lump. A shipping issue.
Hi Robin, thank you for writing this review. We are so sorry that the candle and the candy melted. We are always willing to replace any item that does not meet standards when you get it. Of course, we don't want to replace with these same items as they did not handle the shipping well for you. We will send you two different items to make up for those! Thank you for letting us know and thanks for being a part of the Celebrate States Family!
The monthly boxes have been a fun assortment of food items and home/kitchen items. I love that I have a state keepsake each month along with consumables that won't take up space. I have received things like a cutting board, candles, kitchen towels, a Swedish dish cloth, candle holders, a coffee cup etc. So far all the boxes I have received have been wonderful. I even ordered a special edition box and chose a flamingo theme. Customer service was very responsive and friendly when working out what I wanted for a special box. I think it was adorable!!! Top notch subscription. I highly recommend it.
Thank you so much for adding the review about the boxes you have received since your last review. It was so fun creating that flamingo themed box for you! We definitely work hard to make sure the consumables are yummy and the kitchen and bath items are useful! Although our specialty boxes aren't advertised on this platform, anyone can request one by reaching out to us directly. We appreciate you and are so happy to have you as part of our Celebrate States family!
Just too much food only in my opinion.
Thank you so much for your feedback. Our subscriber feedback is very important and we take it into consideration as we build out future boxes! Thank you for being a part of the Celebrate States Family!
I have been getting this subscription for myself for a long time. I got my son a three month sub for him to try out after a not very good experience with a different "state" box. He is LOVING this box just as much as I do. I am sure I will be renewing this for him since he has liked it so much. I highly recommend this box for the fun variety and value of gifts, the uniqueness, and the amazing customer service. My son loves trying new snacks and has liked the other included gift items special to each state, so this was the perfect gift for him.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy that your son loves the Celebrate States boxes! We have a confession- we eat the snacks too! We would love to hear which snacks have been his favorite. The Modjeskas were such an amazing and unique treat from the Kentucky box! A personal favorite. Thank you for posting pictures of the boxes! I hope your son continues to enjoy his "travel" with us. Thanks for being a part of the Celebrate States Family!
I love the box but I am still getting two boxes instead of one.
Thank you so much for the great review! Also, thank you for letting us know about the issue! I believe I have rectified the situation and you will receive only one box for the next two months! Thanks for being a part of the Celebrate States Family!
As a Geography Teacher, I have been getting this box for over a year and have been nothing but happy!
They always have great stuff sourced from each specific state that delights me and/or makes me say “wow! I didn’t know that came from there!”. They also always include great print info about the state like travel brochures, maps, visitor’s guides etc that adds extra information and value. Very worthwhile purchase!! Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for the great review! We LOVE having you as part of our Celebrate States Family! This makes our heart sing! We appreciate you!!!!
I know I chose the right address for this gift, at least initially in the check out process. Unfortunately, it was shipped to me in Florida instead of to New York. So much for ease of gift giving.
Upon checking your order, it appears that the November box that you ordered was listed to go to an address in Florida. The December and January boxes are listed to go to an address in NY. Our boxes do ship automatically to the address that is placed in the system for each month. We will reach out to Cratejoy to see how the address for November could have come up differently than the address for the next two months, as it shows on your order. We will follow up with you directly, as well. Anytime there is an issue, we are happy to try to fix it if you reach out to us directly. Thanks so much!
I love Celebrate States and am always so excited to see what’s in it. This is what I did with part of the LA box!
Thank you so much for the great review! We are so happy that you love the boxes. So cute what you did with our art on the box. The reason we don't use pre-printed boxes, like some boxes do, is because we love to create new art for each box. We are so happy you could repurpose it! We appreciate you and thank you for being a part of the Celebrate States Family!
Love our stacations each month. We get to visit/learn about a different state each month. Also, it is very helpful in planning our trips.
Thank you so much for the great review. We are so happy to hear that you love the Celebrate States boxes and that they are helpful to you! We'd love to hear about some of your great trips!!! Thanks for being a part of the Celebrate States Family!
I love this Rain scent,very fresh and clean!
Thank you for posting a review. I wanted to check to see if you meant to post here or if this was meant for a different box listing. Either way, we are super happy that you love a rain scent and hope you are enjoying the product that you are referring to!
Really impressed with this box. Love all the booklets with it… good quality and just a delight to receive in the mail. Will get a longer subscription for sure.
We REALLY appreciate your review for Celebrate States. It makes us so happy when we hear that our subscribers are happy! Thank you so much for the great review and for being a part of the Celebrate States family!
I really expected more supporting the local community. I'm not a big fan of the food items, maybe one. I didn't get the feel of the city. Sorry.
We are sorry that you did not like the food items in the box. We are not sure about the rest of the review. Celebrate States supports local businesses as the majority of the items are from small businesses in the featured state. Our happy subscribers really love the unique items that are not necessarily "typical" from the state and introduce them to new businesses and items from that state. We don't really focus on one particular city and try to find items from across the state. We will reach out to see if you would like to continue. If so, we hope you like the future boxes better.
Love this box! Always filled with interesting info about the different states & lots of yummy goodies!
Thank you so much for the positive feedback! We love having you as part of the Celebrate States Family and we are so happy that you continue to enjoy our boxes each month! Thanks so much! We appreciate you!
I bought this as gift for my young adult son. He says it was just ok. I was very disappointed though. I paid a lot for the 3 month subscription and extra for shipping as they don’t cover it. So i ended up paying almost $50 a box which did not include anything even clse to that amount. His box was from CO and had 1-single pice of bacon, 1-bag of trail mix, 1-small bag of freeze dried hi-chew (which was the only fav), 1-small wood candle holder with 2-non scented tea light, 1- small bag banana cookies, and 1-bar of soap (which was a 2nd fav). So out of the whole box only two items were enjoyed and the only big item was the bar of soap.
We are so sorry that your son was disappointed with the subscription box. We are reaching out to you directly to rectify the situation.
Thank you for letting us know.
Such a fun gift! I purchased this for my husband for Christmas and we have the best time each month guessing which state it will be!
Thank you so much for the great review! I am so glad that you enjoy it and have fun guessing what the state will be each month. We are excited to have you as part of the Celebrate States Family!
The dark chocolate covered bacon was the best. Very interesting products you find to include in each "state" box. We have enjoyed everything. Thank you.
Hi Judy and Larry,
Thank you so much for the great review! We are so happy that you enjoy the unique products in each box. And yes, the chocolate covered bacon is amazing! Thank you so much for being a part of the Celebrate States Family!
We gave this box to a grandparent, who loves travel. It has been a disappointment. Although it is fun for her to receive a box each month, the items are certainly not worth the cost of this subscription, and it feels like someone just went to the tourism bureau of each of the states and picked up the tourist guides to include. I feel hoodwinked on this one, though in the past have loved my Cratejoy subscriptions.
We are so sorry that your grandparent did not enjoy the boxes and that you don't feel the items from our small business partners were worth the cost. While we do add a travel magazine or other travel information on most states, that cost is certainly not included in the cost of the subscription. It is just a fun add-in that state travel bureaus add to our boxes so that people enjoying the boxes may research a possible vacation there. The true value is in the food, bath and body, and home decor items that are made by small businesses across the U.S. We do know that subscriptions that buy in huge quantities from overseas can offer more expensive items for less. Our mission...
My kids and I LOVE this monthly box. All of the items are thoughtful, well-planned, educational and fun! I have several other monthly box subscriptions and this one is by far one of my favorites.
Thank you so much for the great review! We are THRILLED that you and your kids love your Celebrate States boxes! We are so happy that you appreciate the thought we put into the boxes and the educational components we add. We appreciate you! Thanks for being a part of the Celebrate States Family!
I love this box. Not only the great curation of items but the customer service is outstanding! I have a severe food allergy and they have been SO wonderful in accommodating my needs. Not many companies will do that as it is a LOT of extra effort for just one person. After 17 boxes, including 2 special edition boxes, I can say with confidence that they are worth every penny and send a fabulous assortment of treats and gifts every single month. I had a different "state" box and it fell short, in my opinion. Just get this one, either for yourself or as a gift, or both. It's superb ;-)
Hi Michele! Thank you SO Much for the wonderful review! We love having you as part of the Celebrate States Family and we love sourcing items that meet your needs with your specific allergies. What a GREAT Picture of the Texas Box too! We are looking forward to getting your next box out to you soon :) We appreciate you!
I loved it,great subscription box
Thank you so much for leaving this review! We appreciate you and thanks so much for being part of the Celebrate States Family!
Getting one of these boxes every month has defo made my 2021! The team are super nice, organised, and efficient, providing a wide range of stuffs every time. You can decide what you'd like/ what you rather avoid, and even get stuff for that furry member of the family. Couldn't be happier knowing 2022 is going to bring even more celebrate state goodness.
We really appreciate the great review!!! Thank you so much! Having you as part of the Celebrate States family made our 2021! We LOVE sending a bit of the U.S. to other countries- it is SO FUN to know our boxes are being enjoyed by you and your pups in England! Thanks again for the great review and for being a part of the Celebrate States family!!!!!
Ok guys....thinking about this box? It is a wonderful curation of each state they represent. I have gotten 5 boxes now and have not been disappointed. Not only do you get goods and products from the featured box, but you also learn a little about each state and usually brochures are included in the box for your vacation travel plans. This months box featured TEXAS, my home state and they out did themselves with this box. The theme is our state Flower Blue Bonnets...can I tell you how well they did...excellent and if you've never smelled blue bonnets...plenty of product here to fill your home with the wonderful scent! You can see more of this box on my Youtube unboxing channel miss_jackie_russell. Thank you Celebrate States for a wonderful way to let us experience our US States.
Thank you so much for the awesome review and for the terrific video! By the way we LOVE the color of your walls and we also LOVE your accent :) We are so happy that you found the Texas box did your home state proud! Your reviews are great and we subscribed to your site to watch more!
Thank you for being a part of the Celebrate States Family! We appreciate you!
More in the box than I expected, all very relevant and unique to the state. Hoped for better history and maps in the boxes though.
Thank you so much for the rating! We really appreciate that you enjoyed the items in the box! We are so sorry that the level of information on the state could have been more for you. While we strive to fill every box with quality items from small businesses in each state, the level of state information can depend on the travel industry in that state. Unfortunately, some states are only providing digital information, but others send us a lot of great information to add to the boxes. So, we apologize if occasionally our state information is a little lighter than other times. We really like the idea of providing more history on each state and will consider that for future boxes!- thank...
The seller has wonderful communication and a lot of effort is put into curating the boxes. We did 3 months, loved the Mass and Fla boxes, the Penn box was just okay but after we added egg noodles, veggies and marinated chicken thighs to the Yankee Doodle Chicken Soup mix that was in the Penn box, we can't complain, we ate off that for a week, it was hearty and delicious. We enjoyed the 3 boxes and may return later.
Thank you so much for your review and your valuable feedback! We are so happy to hear that your kids loved the Massa-Boo-Setts box but very disappointed that they were disappointed in the Pennsylvania Dutch Box. The PA box was a bit more adult with the serving board, hand designed kitchen towel, mustard and snacks. We are super excited to send your family their third box which is packed full of goodness that I believe they will be jumping for joy again! We have so much fun interactive information in this next box as well as some sweet treats! We appreciate you and appreciate the feedback, as it helps us in designing future boxes for our Celebrate States Families!
