Stationery and Handmade Subscription Boxes

I have tried out lots of different subscription boxes over the last couple of years. They seemed to start out in the beauty industry, but now handmade, stationery and craft boxes are giving the beauty companies a run for their money. You can even get them for tea lovers these days and I love the idea of this Try The World food one.

I thought you guys would like to see the contents of my current stationery and handmade themed subscription boxes. Starting with the Kawaii Box for July.

When there are items which are not really for me, I will use them for gifts (although I keep ALL THE STICKERS). Love this macaron eraser to add to my collection.

The August Kawaii Box had a make your own candy kit, stationery and plushies.

I adore the macaron themed items of course. After conversion, this box actually works out about £10 including postage.

Next up is the Lucky Dip Club Subscription Box. This one is receiving a lot of press so I’m glad I signed up early from the very first box. The July theme was Pet Parade.

Tammy got a gift in this one! Each box contains a personalised item which Leona makes for almost 400 subscribers!

The August box was Ice Cream themed which I adored. You can buy individual items and past Lucky Dip Club boxes here.

The packaging is always so well thought out and I have to be so restrained to photograph items before I carefully unpack them.

I adore the personalised ice cream necklace and pins. The theme for the next box is Woodland I believe.

After much experimentation with sub boxes, I can honestly say that these two are my favourite so far. They just contain so much cute!

Toodles!

National Stationery Week 2013

22 – 28 April is National Stationery Week in the UK! It seems like every week is a National-something-week at the moment, but this one is right up my street and aims to “Get Britain Writing”. Having just joined Anna’s Post Circle (along with 170 others), I now have another excuse to buy pretty stationery.

I also want to recommend some great stationery subscription boxes:

The Green Gables Eco Stationery Club which fellow craft blogger Hannah Ackroyd has reviewed here.

The It’s Paper Dear stationery subscription box by Zie of Darling Dear is a fabulous surprise box of goodies including notebooks, pencils, stickers, journalling cards and more. I love getting this as a treat and reviewed a box on my blog here.

Lastly, what do you think of my stamp bunting card? I tried hard not to cut into the Queen’s head!
