I wanted to like this box so bad because I LOVE reading and I am learning to enjoy stepping up my lifestyle. The first box I received was nice but the wow factor was damped by the fact that I already received 90% of the items from another subscription box about a year previous. So, I basically paid about $40.xx to own a book. The items did not go to waste but there is little incentive for me to want to try again. I will not cut Culture Carton for that but I think it is worth a mention for others to be aware of before getting excited. When I look at some of the past boxes I am happy that I did not subscribe again because those would be just duplicates of what I already own. Which would frustrate me.
I’ve been looking forward to receiving this box! I loved the book, The Sea. It’s been on my list for awhile. I also really like the King x Portland socks. They are really soft and seem to be good quality. I wish the socks had matched the pocket square and tie, but overall I’m happy with my purchase.
Nothing very intriguing or pops out as cool. I could have shopped at Big lots for more items with the same money spent.
First box arrived without issues.. decent items. However, the second box was lost in transit. I've been sending emails to Cultural Cartons but still no answer.
We're sorry to hear the postal service made an error delivering your 2nd carton. A replacement Culture Carton was shipped and arrived on August 18th.
I purchased this as a gift for my husband, and planned for just the 3 months. Turns out my husband has loved everything he’s received and we’ve kept it going as something just for him each month. He’s had several awesome pair of Sunglasses, pretty nice watches, socks, ties, and other great stuff. He’s also really enjoying all the books. Communication with this crate has been super quick and accommodating/helpful. I highly recommend this as a gift or just because!
I gave this as a 6 month gift subscription to my 23 year old son. He loved it so much, I ended up extending it. My son aims to be cultured and the book selections are an excellent mix of old and new - definitely all things someone well read should touch on.
The fashion is mostly good - on trend for sure. He particularly loved a watch he received. Many of the gadgets have been fun and useful for him as well.
I sent them an email about my box missing and someone contacted me this morning and offered to send me a new box! Thanks Ryan for the Christmas miracle!!
I received my first Culture Carton box this month and couldn't be happier. The book is excellent, the leather products were put to immediate use, and the Blender Polarized Shades came just in time. Can't wait to see what the next box brings.
Solid monthly subscription with original unique products and quality reads. Highly recommend.
I got this box for my husband for father’s day. He loved getting a surprise each month! Items are great quality and always come with a fun theme
This was an awesome gift for men - was a fun surprise to wait for, and the items in the box were always worth the wait
I've tried a few other boxes and Culture Carton is far better. The quality of the items is head and shoulders above other boxes. I also quite like the variety of things that they pick for the boxes. Not every month is exactly what I would like but that's kind of the fun of it; some months are fantastic and others are different than something I would get for myself, but never bad. My only complaint with the box was the books that they included, the books tended to be old classics that I had already read. Because of that, I switched to the essentials box. All in all this box is fantastic and has consistently had great quality items.
Thank you! The book was a cherry on top!
I have had 4 or 5 different subscription boxes over the past 2 years. Most of them have one or two good quality items that keep you subscribed for a while until that item is bad and then you cancel. In Culture Carton honestly every item I use, get compliments on (if wearable), the books are always interesting and never had one I thought was a waste of time reading. NO FLUFF items in a subscription box is rare. Highly recommend.
Great items each month!
I bought this box as a way to find new books and see if there were any new products I could use in my life. For the 3 months I had received this box I got exactly that. The books were entertaining and helped me learn something, and I still get compliments on the wooden spice box every time I entertain guests!
I subscribe to a few boxes and it's like xmas every month for me. My husband is always there for the unboxing so I thought it only fair that he get one to open as well. I got the 3 month subscription and received the final box a few days ago. My husband loves getting this. The items you send are things he loves but will never buy for himself. These are quality items and perfect for all types of personalities. I will be renewing this box when we get back from vacation in a few weeks. It is worth the money just for my Thank you kisses alone. Would make a great gift for Dads, Granddads, Brothers as well.
This box is awesome! Every month (3 months so far) I get a fresh package of an eclectic variety of things that every man will, and should, use. Some great reads in each box as well. It's a great value box for your money! Looking forward to next months box already. In short, do yourself a favor and subscribe. Highly recommended!
The book was shipped in a timely and accurate manner. When I received it though there was a sticker on the back of the book that says it was damaged and the book itself looks like it walked right off the shelf at Ollie’s. I suppose for a 16 dollar a month sub service I shouldn’t expect leather bound, gold lined masterpieces. The book itself (The Cuban Affair by Nelson Demille) is pretty good so far. It’s not really the most mind blowing material but sometimes you need some $10 fiction to let your brain relax after a hard day of work. I appreciate you guys picking these, I’m an extremely indecisive person so I struggle with finding new reads.
I bought this for husband and her really liked it. The book was something he was interested to read. In addition to the book, he got a bar of "man" soap, a wallet and business card holder. The wallet was very nice- he just might switch it up from his old one. The bar of soap was really nice as well. What was missing in the box was a desciption of each product and how it fit into the theme. That would have been nice. Perhaps it was because it was a gift subscription? Besides that, it was fun!
Saw the pictures with cool items and at a great price. I got sent a book and realized I chose the book club. The actual crate is much more expensive. $16 a month for a paperback book I didn't choose that I could probably get on Amazon for $5.
I received my first box from Culture Carton and really liked the contents. I use 2 of the items on a daily basis and the book has introduced me to a different way of thinking than what I was used to. I can't wait for the second box to arrive!
I cancelled this then was sent and charged anyway after i purchased several christmas gifts on cratejoy i was really happy with. Can i get credit to try a diffrrent crate and please m as ke sure im not sent another one of these. Thank you, Susan
Subscription services inherently renew so it's not uncommon that subscribers cancel after signing up so their subscription does not renew, especially gift purchases like yours. If you would of reached out to us asking for a refund we would of been happy to make that happen.
So, it was my own fault for not paying attention as closely as I should. The picture is a misleading, and foolishly, I ended up paying $16 for a book that was torn and stained that sells new on Amazon for $10. Before you order, know what you're ordering.
Got a book, tiny snack bars, socks, and Bluetooth earbuds. The earbuds are $100 dollars retail. Good value but I was still underwhelmed.
