Q: Hey, I know you've been asked about the Game of Thrones set a bit. Would you ever consider making this set made to order? Asked by Kiara D., September 2019
Q: Hi is the Game of Thrones version of this available yet? Also, do you get a different story each month as in a different book or is this a one time purchase? I would love Harry Potter, LOTR and GOT! So would love to purchase all three as a one off if possible?? XAsked by Rebekah D., September 2019
The Game of Thrones Box got slightly delayed, so it will be available as a
one-time purchase in early October :-) Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings
are monthly boxes that do not include the book, but each one follows the
story chapter by chapter. This month's Lord of the Rings box is the
chapter from The Two Towers that follows Treebeard, Merry, and Pippin
during the Entmoot. The Harry Potter box for this month is the final part
of the Sorcerer's Stone and features items dealing with the House Cup and
leaving Hogwarts after year one.
Hope this helps!!
That makes a lot more sense now! Thanks :) last questions.... is there a waiting list I can add my name to for GOT box and are past boxes available to purchase? Thanks so much for your reply! X
This was a really pleasant surprise! I was a bit concerned after reading an earlier review about the scent being weak, but have found my first box to be quite nice. I noticed over time I acclimatized to the scent, but if I left the room for a few minutes and came back it was present again. I love that the 3 candle scents were very different from each other, allowing me to choose between a fresh earthy scent, a warm sweet scent, and a warm floral scent, based on mood. :) The mug was cute and classy, and I loved the bookmark. I've not yet tried the tea but was happy that it seemed like something to enjoy through the winter season.
The main draw back to this is the shipping cost (~$16,) about what I pay for my illumicrate book box from England). This is noted in the description, so I can't complain, but brought the total to $40. This overall price decreases the cost:value ratio, but I still found it to be worth it. The packaging is beautiful with candles tucked into silk bags, and the candles are well protected. Nothing was broken despite all items being fragile (glass jars, ceramic mug).
Overall this is a great little subscription box. I look forward to the next few months of it!
What a charming box! The candles smell lovely and were packaged so well. And I LOVE the Harry Potter themed gifts that came with this box. I'm excited to burn my candles, and I can't wait to see what next month brings!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I am so happy that you are enjoying your Story Boxes! :-)
I wanted to love this. I tried to love this. And I came so, so close to loving this. The little gifts were fun (a pair of socks, a tin of tea), and the candle names were fantastic (Fluffy, Privet Drive, etc). And the packaging? The packaging is amazing! The candles come in a little silk bag and the entire thing looks like something straight out of Harry Potter. Where this fell a little short? The candle scents just weren't there. The candles smell amazing in the jar, but when lit the scent doesn't carry at all. We have a fairly small living room and I couldn't smell it when it was lit. If the candles were stronger, I would love this subscription. As is, I just really like it.
This box made a great gift! It was beautifully packaged and included several candles, plus a hand-stamped cuff bracelet and story card.
Had ordered this for from the Mothers Day specials....it was not delivered until weeks after Mothers Day. The candles were great however, one holder was broken. There was no book as indicated there would be but a charm instead.
Wicks, received, Words, failed to provide.
I am so sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your Story Box! Books are not part of the subscription, so I apologize if there was any confusion in the listing. I am happy to replace your broken item, if you will just let me know which one you need.
Have a wonderful day!
