The Bookishly Classic Book Crate Review (May edition) #BookSubscriptionBox #Review

Hello Book Dragons! I am late! Yup, I know. I received the box on time and everything was cool, I just had no mojo to review anything. 😦 Well, it is better late than never. 😀 I have got quite a few items from Bokkishly.co.uk. I love their unique art and amazing book covers. The theme for the month of May was The Wind In The Willows, and all the items were related to this book.

The Bookishly Classic Book Crate is a by-monthly box. You can buy it as single or as recurring subscription. The box is £35 including shipping in the UK. For international customers there might be different charges. On the website it says that “There’ll be at least seven other themed items in each crate, all of them making beautiful book lover gifts in their own right. Art, stationery, books and other surprise items that we don’t want to reveal just yet. Our book crates are great value, with the average retail value of each box worth over £55. You can take a look at previous boxes in our past crate gallery.” If you would like to know more, please visit bookishly.co.uk Without further do, lets have a look at what came in this box. 🙂

I always wanted a page framed like that! The quote on the page looks brilliant, and I find it very ecstatically pleasing. 🙂 The soaps that came in the box smell really strong, and the whole box smelled nice. 🙂 Wild Wood smells of patchouli and sandalwood, and Windy Willows smells of rose geranium, and both of them are vegan. 🙂 The tea is called Tea Of Toad Hall and it is camomile tea. The tea is very good quality and I really enjoyed it. 🙂

This box is oriented around art because bookishly is great at it. 😉 So, I received a A5 print with a quote from the book, that would look lovely in the frame. It is made from card paper and very great quality. There was a cute bookmark with another quote from the book, and a stats card about Kenneth Grahame, the author of the book.

I have an obsession with postcards and cards in general. I use them for post crossing and as a props in my Instagram pictures. I received a set of three cards with quotes from the book with envelopes. I am not going to send them to anyone, I like them way too much. 😀

The books that came in the box were paperbacks. The Wind In The Willows is a Wordsworth classics edition with a cover specially made for this box. They also included a vintage copy of Apple Bough by Noel Streatfeild. I have to admit that I haven’t read any of these books. 😀 So it will be a great chance to catch up on the children’s literature that raised generations. 🙂

Here all the items from this crate. Overall, I think this box is more for people who are into unique art and into collecting classics. I think, it is an amazing gift to someone who loves books and bookish stuff. I am happy that I had a chance to try it out for this little project of mine, but I don’t think I will be ordering it again. I know it is unique but I think it’s a little too expensive for what you get. Thank You very much for reading this post, and I am very excited for this month box, because it was pretty hard to get it. 😉
