Subscription box: Owlcrate
Theme/Month: From Olympus With Love, January 2021
Ownership: Last box of my subscription. If you are interested in purchasing an Owlcrate subscription, you can do it on their website.
Owlcrate was my first ever subscription box way back in 2015, and usually features young adult books in a variety of genres alongside a few bookish items. Sadly due to import fees and shipping, I have had to cancel my subscription and won’t be getting any further boxes.
However, I am happy to have had this as my last box, and I’ll start with the bottom right going clockwise:
- A letterboard, which obviously I decided to use by setting the theme there. I did feel a bit sad that the frame had no decorations or anything, felt like a missed opportunity.
- It also came with a cute pouch to hold all the letters and symbols of the letterboard.
- A tapestry that is a lunar calendar featuring Artemis and Athena.
- A pin banner, I like that they are usually decorated and thick fabric so they just dont tear.
- A wooden bookmark, which looks like somoenes been biting it, and has two different sides.
- Nectar of the Gods tea, which is peppermint tea and sadly nothng more interesting.
- Theme card
- And the book, Lore. I’ve heard mixed reviews on it so I am curious, however not high expectations since I am not huge on greek mythology based books.
Overall I enjoy this box, it had some confusing items like the bookmark but I enjoyed a lot the letterboard since I have been wanting one for a while, just sad it didnt have a design on the eadge, but still a good item and the lunar tapestry/calendar is also cool.
As mentioned above, it was a nice last box and the only reason to cancel was mostly that shipping charges went up a lot due to political climate and being in the UK and all that, so not their fault.
