Q: Does a book come with the Petite Mailer?Asked by Rebecca H., December 2019

Hi Rebecca, our Petite version is a slimmed down version that doesn't include books. We do, however, include the creative work our featured writers share, and the exclusive letter they write to our subscribers and other fun treats. Keep in mind that the price includes free shipping and a book would make that impossible. Do check out our website, email list, and social media-- we do contests and have offered books in the past! We may do...

Q: I wanted to purchase the box and at checkout a window popped up that said Plume does not have enough boxes to purchase. When will your boxes become available again? Thanks.Asked by Marcee S., September 2019

Plume releases new boxes each month, as we grow we sell-out of our inventory. To order a box and start your subscription get your order in before the end of the month to be sure to get a box. Our November box features Jill Badonksy. The theme is gratitude and we'll have some great self-care items and lots to inspire you to write! I hope you'll join us!

I received my first box at the beginning of August. As my essential oils infuser scented the air with uplifting grapefruit and centering lavender, and whilst sipping my cup of tea, I opened up the writers' caregiving package. As a woman, speech therapist, and poet who lived alone for many years and who learned the fine art of self-care and self-reliance, each item I pulled from the Plume box nourished and validated me. For once, I'm investing in this special type of care and encouragement. Yes, I of course paid for the subscription but yes, the thoughtful contents in the box felt life valuable gifts. I'm not alone. We're not alone. Highly recommended.

I was extremely excited to receive my mailer. The prompts and the subscription was lovingly designed. I definitely loved the little mini envelope I can see why it's so popular. I only lacked one star in shipping because the mailer got a little beat up by the Postal Service which is no fault of the sender one of my photos was pretty bent but I managed to straighten it out. Overall I loved it and I will be renewing.

This box is simply not up to professional standards. I get another writing box that is high-quality and I was hoping this one would add to that. Sadly, this one just isn’t worth the cost - for me.

We work hard to curate each box to inspire writers at all craft levels, with self-care products sourced from New Mexico, such as candles, hand-made goat milk soaps, bath bombs, tea, sweet treats, and even our famous green chile. We also provide a platform that highlights the work of successful, sometimes lesser-known women writers, to provide vital encouragement for our subscribers. We’re so sorry to hear that Plume wasn’t a good fit for you. We wish you the best of luck with your writing.

I get the petite mailer. The price is very reasonable, and the prompts, reading materials, and tea are a great value. It’s one of my favorite cratejoy subscriptions, and I even bought a gift subscription for a friend. To be sure, the petite mailer isn’t a subscription where you get tons of STUFF, but just the adorably packaged and thoughtfully curated writing prompts alone are worth the cost for me.

The mini is definitely worth it, the mini envelope with prompts is so cute. The teas are unique but I'd rather have hot chocolate. ;)

Hi Michelle!

We're so glad you love the Petite Plume Mailer! The little envelopes with the prompts are very popular :) We love hot chocolate, too--maybe in the winter months! Thank you for your review.

This is such a happy box. Full of little "prompts" or imagination on-switches. A lovely letter and folio from a lovely woman writer. An odd photograph that I'm not sure what the meaning is or was, but I made up a little story in my head about a Greek sailor.....oh that's been told already! But the bestest of all was! A little teensy tiny envelope, purple in color and folded so cunningly!
I love the envelope beyond all envelopes on earth! Oh there was tea also.
As soon as it is possible, I believe I'll try the bigly box! Maybe the photo will be explained. But will that take away the fun of a mystery mysterious photo?
But I must know!?!? Does a little cunningly folded envelope come with the other box?

Hi Susan! Thank you so much for the review! And so glad you like the teensy tiny envelope! we almost got rid of them but they're such fun. and yes, the box has everything the Petite Plume Mailer has-- plus more tea, and more Self-Care for the Creative Soul treats which will vary each month.

We hope you are using the prompts to write!
All the best,
