Stars Hollow Monthly Subscription Box Review – August 2016
Stars Hollow Monthly is a monthly subscription box that sends you Gilmore Girls inspired items!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Stars Hollow Monthly
The Cost: $29.95
The Products: “3-5 Gilmore Girl-Inspired goodies. Anything from tee shirts (on occasion), home decor, fashion accessories, bath & body items, and much much more. This box subscription is a branch under our main Lit-Cube business BUT we will NOT be sending out books in every one of these box shipments. You *may* get one every once in a while, but mostly this will be a subscription for fandom items, collectibles, and tons of Gilmore-Girl themed EXCLUSIVES.”
Ships to: US + Canada

I love the information card/menu! I think it’s a really cute way to make the information card special. Seeing so many of Kirk’s previous jobs listed makes me excited to see what he’s up to in the new episodes – what hasn’t he done in Stars Hollow? The information card not only listed each item but included some teaser information about their collaboration with Boca Java Coffee.
Exclusive Double-Walled Porcelain Luke’s Travel Mug – $29.95
I was really excited to see this in the box because I’m a fan of DCI’s “I am not a paper cup” travel mugs. They’re really sturdy and I’ll use this all the time. A previous box included a Luke’s mug and I’m excited to have a portable version! And any legitimate Gilmore Girl needs access to coffee 24/7!
Baby Boca Java Coffee Pack – $2.50
I’m certainly not an expert as describing the flavor notes of coffee but I can say that I liked this! I would say this was on the lighter medium side of coffee roasts. I like my coffee strong and in large quantities so I brewed the whole package at once. This company contributes some of their sales to various charities which is always a nice bonus! I would definitely try some of their other blends based on this sample. Stars Hollow Monthly also partnered with them and for a limited time, you can use the code GILMORE50 to get 50% off your first order from Boca Java. That purchase enters you in a Boca Java giveaway for a 6-month coffee subscription + a Doose’s Market Tote Bag & more.
Exclusive Pill/Trinket Pocket Box $7.95
“I’m afraid once your heart’s involved it all comes out in moron.” Lorelai tells Rory this after she has her first kiss with Dean and politely says “thank you”. Definitely a memorable and empathetically cringeworthy moment in Gilmore history and a fun quote to have on this pill box.
At first I wasn’t sure if I’d use this very often but I love that it has a little divider in the middle. I’ve been using this for aspirin, mints, or vitamins and it’s been a really cute space saver in my bag.
Exclusive Dragonfly Acrylic Coaster Set – $19.95
These coasters are really cute. A previous box included Dragonfly Inn hand towels so I can imagine adding these to a Dragonfly Inn collection. It would make for a great themed guest room! I appreciate the stoppers on the bottom which keep these from sliding around. I already have coasters and probably won’t use these but I know my mom will love them so I think I’ll pass these on to her!
Verdict: I really enjoyed this Stars Hollow Monthly box! The listed value adds up to $60.35. The fact that I loved the highest ticket item makes this box worth it for me! And I was pleasantly surprised by all the other items. I liked the mix of practicality and nostalgia. Not only did I think the packaging was cute but I’ll actually use everything! That’s always a huge bonus for me.
What do you think about the Stars Hollow Monthly box? What item was your favorite? Will anyone be using their Luke’s Travel Mug at the upcoming Gilmore Girls Fan Fest in Connecticut this October? I’ll be there so be sure to say “copper boom”, “oy with the poodles already”, or any other Gilmore Girl-ism!
