Good but I'm a little perplexed, because it doesn't seem to be what is advertised. Originally gave this a 5 star review, thinking that maybe what I received was a little off because of the timing. But now I'm genuinely confused having received my second box. I got 3 books, which alone have a value of more than what I paid for the box (THAT'S AWESOME... although there's no way I can keep up the pace of reading to get through those in a month). They are all things I'm excited to read, but there doesn't appear to be any detectable or otherwise explained "woman from the Bible" theme. I also received another notepad, a pen, a very cheap looking key chain, and 2 rolls of candy. I emailed directly and sent a message through CrateJoy, but so far haven't received responses to either. What drew me to this and what I loved in the first box was the Biblical encouragement. This seemed like just books and stuff thrown into a bag, very different than some of the boxes pictured and noted in the 5 star reviews. Those are really what I was hoping to get. Holding out hope that they will get back on track.
Original thoughts: I received my first box a few weeks ago. I think I ordered at a weird time (out of sync with their sending cycle), so I seemed to get a bit of...
Received my July box today, I was a little disappointed. I'm a previous subscriber who just rejoined, and it seems to me that previous boxes were much better. What I received was 2 books, 2 mints, a tiny Kleenex pack and a plastic pen. The books look really good, but I hope the next box is better.
I'm sorry to hear that, we love it when subscribers return. It sounds like your box was incomplete. I'm posting a picture of the July Box in 'current box showcase" . It contained the brand new release (6/7/21) book " Between the Wild Branches by Connilyn Cossette, The Light Within me by Ainsley Earhardt, Our monthly brochure, Notepad & Pen , 2-3 Christian scripture Mints, A travel packet of Scripture kleenex for your purse, Bicycle postcard and my favorite...,The MAGNETIC cross bookmarks! If you feel you were missing something, please call or email and I will ship you the items. Hope next month amazes you!! :)
This was my first box from Cratejoy and I was a little nervous about not being able to see what I was getting ahead of time, but I absolutely loved it. The surprise element is fun and I loved the choices. Can't wait to read the books!
Edit: This was previously a 5 star review because the first box was phenomenal. Seriously. After seeing what was in it, I bought two more as Christmas gifts. After that, it was hit or miss. Another month's box was really great and definitely worth the cost, unfortunately, most of the time, I was disappointed. Partially through no fault of the seller - sometimes I wasn't wild about the choice in books or some other aspect that they couldn't have known - but it was partially problems with items (damaged, leaking, etc.), or receiving things I asked not to get (and was told I wouldn't), or having to ask where my box was.
Overall, it could be really nice if those problems are addressed. I think it might help to have an option to personalize a bit more so you don't get items or books you'll never use. Unfortunately, I just don't feel like it's worth the price as is.
Thank you for the review and sharing. I admit I have got a bit behind about sharing the box contents! Sometimes it's after they are in flight that I post what your receiving. I guess it makes it more like a present every month, right ? :)
I like the tote bag everything comes in and the books but the seeds not so much because I don't have a green thumb and I like having candy but would love some chocolate candy in there sometimes and also a nice photo I could frame. Also I love the little cards with scriptures that I can give to someone. Mine are already gone! Thanks again and God bless you!
I would have liked to seen my items in a nice container instead of wrapped in tissue paper and stuffed inside of an usps envelope. The pictures on website verses box don't seem to match. I give a 3 but will give it another month hoping it will be better. My understanding was the owner had a loss in the family. I love the aspect that Christian books. I would like to see more than 2 books and card and a stapled study.
