Unplugged Book Box is more than bookish goodies and new reads. They take great pride in spreading awareness for suppressed voices and prioritizing the self-care of their team and customers. I love that this box doesn't only focus on the books, but also on methods of self-care, including journal prompts and other fun goodies, and on supporting other businesses and new authors!
The quality of products is also wonderful. I'm still in awe of how wonderful the candle in my May box smells, and I love knowing that my subscriptions are also supporting smaller vendors and businesses.
The team are also very honest and up front about shipping expectations and care a great deal about their subscribers! I could not recommend them more!

Such a cute box... I love everything I’ve gotten, especially the book sleeve, the cute cutting board (I use it daily to cut fruit), lotions (smells so yummy and I use it all the time!!), and bookmarks. Great and adorable items I use all the time. Socks, mugs, bookends, great book choices... and the self care items are cool because they come from small businesses. Love the candles. This is my favorite box and I get a lot!

Amazing Subscription Box!

I have gotten two Unplugged boxes (with a third on the way!) and loved them both! I like that the items included are usually all very usable, rather than just for show, it means even when a fandom I am not in is represented I can still happily use the item. I also love the playlist cards, so unique and fun!

Support Small Businesses - Great box!

I get the YA box usually but tried adult this month too and am super impressed. Absolutely loved all the extras and the books. A+++++ for supporting small businesses as this box does (all my other book& subscription boxes only give stuff from China and big companies) - so that makes me happy. Let’s clap for not just putting money the pockets of big businesses and supporting the local economy! Also love the quality!! And the book! And the packaging! And the communication! Can you tell I love it?

If you live is the US then this box might be worth your time but they shouldn't even offer it to Canada or other countries because the shipping ends up costing more then the box by the time it gets over the border and by then the items you get in the box are a disappointment

Hi Brooke!
We do our best to pack value in to every box. Each box is worth between $80-$100 in retail value and is packed with usable novelty items and quality self-care goodies. In addition to the value on the books and products, in choosing Unplugged, you're supporting multiple small businesses with every purchase - which helps individual families! Each box features at least three or four small businesses and one or two small artists. We prioritize paying our employees, fulfillment team, and vendors fairly for the extensive time and planning and work that goes into every box while still including plenty of value for our customers.
Since we utilize mostly small businesses and artists, products are all exclusive and unique to our box and are not...

Love the YA box! I also love all their special edition boxes. I have gotten adult too and it’s also great (but I read mostly YA). Try it for a while - you won’t regret it!
