Q: I want to get a three month subscription as a Christmas gift; Can I get the first box sent to me and the rest sent to the recipient?Asked by Clara G., November 2019

Certainly! Just put in your address at first, then change it once you receive the first crate. We're always glad to help, too! ~Melanie with Craftsman Crate

Q: Is it too late to have the first box delivered before christmas?Asked by Cj W., December 2019

Not if you are in the U.S.! U.S. orders by 12/19 should arrive in time for Christmas!

International orders can not be guaranteed for Christmas Delivery after 12/7, but we'll get it shipped as soon as we can get it out the door, so it will get there as soon as possible.

I just got my fifth box in the mail yesterday and I have to say that this one knocked it out of the park for me! I understand that not all boxes are going to be hits, but with that in mind this kit gets me to step out of my box and learn new things that I otherwise would have never tried. If you want to try new things and learn new crafting skills this box will be perfect for you. I have a very curious mind and always want to try new things, this box allows me to do that without having to break the bank by purchasing all of the tools and what-nots needed for a new craft just for me to discover it's not really for me.

This month’s crate was serendipitous. For the past few months I’ve been looking online for quilling kits. And, surprise, the crate contained a quilling kit. It’s like you read my mind. Thank you. Hint: I’m also interested in wood burning, wood carving and embroidery. Just to name a few.

I got my first box and I'm not even sure what the point of it is or what it even makes. It's a bunch of tiny circles to link together.. I'm not seeing much interest in working on it.

Craftsman Crate is a great monthly box if you want to try out a new craft. It provides challenging hands on fun for boys and girls!
If you don't love your new project, you haven't overly invested!

These subscription boxes aren't your run-of-the-mill 'read a bit, do a bit' projects. They are in-depth, hands-on experiences. Since the subscription's inception, we've done wood burning, wood carving, calligraphy, and metal working. This month, however - as you'll see in the unboxing - got the "Coolest Kit Ever!" award. The boxes are designed to teach artisan skills, such as those your grandfather or great-grandfather would have learned, and it's one of the best boxes for teens currently out there.

Not what I expected, good quality

I got this for my husband for Father’s Day, to give him a little inspiration. The box was a drawing box, which my husband wasn’t interested in at all. The content was good, and very good quality , if one was interested in drawing. I have to blame myself a bit, perhaps I didn’t read the description well enough, but when it said that the inspiration was teenage boys, it’s called craftsman crate and it has tools on the box, I kind of figured it would be a little more along the lines of something that a male would like. Not that males don’t draw , that’s not what I was looking for though. I’m hoping the next one will be more appropriate for him
