I ordered this for my wife and it was way more than I expected. The box was full of neat things that related to the book. She loved it.
I loved everything about my first box! The book was on my to read Summer list and the tea was delicious. Can't wait for my next box
I absolutely love receiving this treat every month! I decided to treat myself to this subscription for the 3 months to start, just to try it out. I’m picky about my books 😂 I’m always amazed & excited and I renewed and am on month 6 and I’m still loving each box! High quality, creative, unique, yummy, & support for artists! 🥰
This is a wonderful box for any book lover. You get a classic book (of course) and a whole bunch of interesting little extras that are all specially curated to match the book. It's a wonderful, charming surprise whether you've read the book yet or not. The coffee was also lovely, and definitely gives you enough grounds to allow you to enjoy it through the whole read.
Shipping took quite a while. I suspect this was a combination of COVID-related postal delays and shipping food items across the border, but overall, it was well worth the wait.
Update: Shelby reached out to me - explained what occurred and was able to answer my questions kindly and patiently. My box was shipped on Friday and in my hands on Sunday (today as I write this). I had cancelled my subscription because I only wanted to try one month out, but now that I have received my box, I am over the moon. The care and thoughtful curation that went into this box is very evident in what I received, and I could not be happier. I think resubscribing is definitely in my future. Please keep up the great work.
Placed my order last month to try out this box. Shipping policy states items ship during the second week of the month. It is now the 20th of the month, well past the second week, and my box still has not shipped. To increase my annoyance, I also have yet to receive a response to the question I submitted about shipping and delivery. At this point I feel like they’ve stolen my money and I’ve been had. I want my money back. It’s a shame because the box seemed really cute.
Gave this as a gift to my husband for his birthday. Adorable assortment of items with The Great Gadsby book. High quality coffee too. We are both excited for his next arrival!! I gave a strong feeling we will be extending this beyond the 3 month subscription I bought him!
Just opened my box for Christmas. I honestly could not be more impressed. I never leave reviews but this was so enjoyable, I’m actually going to renew my subscription which I only intended to use for a one time purchase.
We gifted a year subscription to our daughter who is a Junior. She has absolutely loved every box (five so far). Last month's Pride and Prejudice box was her favorite. What a fun, unique gift for the classic book lover!
I loved the box!!
I received my first box last month and I am so pleased that I stumbled across this subscription. I felt like I was really indulging with my treat, coffee, and beautiful book.
I've been subscribing to this box for a few month now and I have to say that this is one of my favorite book box subscriptions. I have loved all the products and the quality of the classic books in particular. I also liked that you can very easily switch back and forth between the adult classic and the kids classic boxes. Customer service is great.
Haven’t read the book but I love the package and the coffee was delicious!
Absolutely floored. Every time I receive a box, I am utterly amazed at the wonderful selections and the care that goes into these delightful boxes. The books are stunning as well as the cups and glasses. Everything is of the highest quality. What I intended to be a one-time purchase has turned into a much-anticipated ongoing subscription. I've also given as gift subscriptions. Thank you so much for offering this beautiful, classy, and wonderful book crate. Everyone should subscribe to this crate. Can't wait for my next one!
Fun, creative and reliable subscription box. I bought my mom and myself a three month subscription, so we could read the classics and chat about them. We both loved each box! The coffee is delicious and the bookish treats are fun and high quality.
I really enjoy this subscription. I like that there is a sneak peek each month to find out what you are getting and the additional items in the box are always a surprise. I feel like these ship kind of slowly, but that just gives me extra time to finish the previous book :)
My subscription: Starter subscription w/hot chocolate
1. The books are always so beautiful!
2. The additional items have always stuck close to the theme of the book in some way - and some of them are so cute I don't even want to actually use them, I'd rather display them on my bookcase.
3. I've always been able to get a hold of the folks running this by contacting them via their website. When I already have a copy or am just plain not interested in the upcoming book, I can easily skip a month and they'll apply my subscription to the next month.
1. I really wish you'd bring back the non-fiction offering!
2. Better bookmarks - this could just be me being weird, but some of the bookmarks were more like trinkets and were so thick or oddly shaped they couldn't actually be used as a bookmark. They have all been really cute, but practicality ranks higher than cuteness for me (as I said, could just be me being weird about it).
I got this as a galentines gift for my sister, and she loved it. The items included in the box are unique and niche, the sort of cute, small things you might want to get at a book or hobby store just for fun. Wonderfully curated !
The book itself was beautiful and quality, and the drink and treat included were obviously chosen thoughtfully. I really appreciate the quality of this box, it lives up to the hype and the price is absolutely worth it.
I've already resubscribed to a three month plan on their website ! I'm totally in love with this box; giving a gift of a subscription can seem so lazy and impersonal, but the contents of the box are so thoughtful and unique its like someone has personally gone out and collected a variety of bookish treasures just for you.
I loved this month's classic! Who doesn't love The Great Gatsby? The green olives that are really white chocolate covered almonds had me fooled and then to come in a martini glass.. How perfect!! Can't wait to re-read this classic with a different perspective..
I ABSOLUTLY LOVE this box!!! I have been subscribing too this box for over a year and I have not received a duplicate. The tea and coffee have all been delicious. I have used all of the "bookish" items without fail and they make me smile when I spot them around the house. They are great at varying the item so you aren't constantly getting the same thing over and over again. My favorite box, hands down, was the Hunchback of Notre Dame box. Thank you so much for all of your creativity and thoughtfulness into each box!
I love this subscription box!! The
Books are great and I love the cup
And extra items!! Like Christmas
Cannot say enough good about this box. Amazing every item was perfect. The Coffee was one of the best I've ever had. Just Loved it!!
Fantastic classic and coffee
I've been eyeing this box for awhile. 50 dollars is a lot, but all of the past boxes were so gorgeous, and I definitely wanted to expand my classic collection. I finally decided to splurge as a Christmas gift for myself. I am so glad I did! After quite the anticipation waiting for this box to arrive, it was even better than I imagined! The feeling of pure joy while unboxing all of the literary surprises made it worth it. All of the products are high quality, well thought out, and brought a smile to my face. The coffee was exceptional, and the book itself was stunning. I loved it so much that I will keep this subscription
going for myself.
Just tried out Coffee and a Classic for the first time and I am in love with these boxes! The attention to detail of all the items in the box and how they correlate with the book is excellent! The book The Secret Garden is a beautiful leather bound copy, the toffee flavored coffee is delicious, the bookmark hand made, and the chocolate covered pretzels were amazing! Highly recommend!
I love this box! This was my first month of Coffee and a Classic and now I am hooked. Everything is gorgeous from the copy of the book to the bookish accompaniments. Although I am familiar with the story, I've never actually read the book. I'm looking forward to starting it this evening.
I loved the thought put into each box. I enjoyed the mask of the red death face mask in Edgar Poe’s box.
