Stars Hollow Monthly Subscription Box Review – January 2017
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: $34.90 a month + free shipping
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: U.S.

As always, we have our Luke’s Diner menu to serve as our information card. All the items are listed out, as well as information on items for sale in their store and the announcement of a new flavor in the Stars Hollow Coffee Club!
Exclusive 5×7 Art Print – Value $4.99
This print features Lorelai and Rory at Luke’s Diner having, of course, coffee. This is the same design that was featured on last month’s ornament. The image also displays a Stars Hollow Monthly box and Boca Java coffee (the official coffee of the Stars Hollow Coffee Club). This is a cute illustration but we have seen it a few times before so I’m not sure that I needed another item with this image.
Exclusive Manicure/Pedicure Travel Kit – Listed Value $14.99
The manicure/pedicure kit comes in a tiny, padded case and features a classic Paris Gellar quote – “Have I ever been mistaken for a patient person?” Paris seems like the right character to quote on this item since she seems like the type of person who would plan ahead, pack efficiently, and carry a mani/pedi travel kit with her.
I really like this little travel kit! I have a trip coming up so this was perfect timing. This six piece kit comes with all the essentials for a quick manicure or pedicure.
Exclusive Copper Boom! Makeup Bag – Listed Value $19.95
This black makeup bag has copper details which go perfectly with the “Copper Boom” quote. “Copper Boom” comes from some miscommunication between Rory and Lorelai while Rory is packing up her beauty products to move into her dorm. This makeup bag would definitely help Rory organize her beauty products because it’s a really nice size! This large bag can definitely hold all the beauty products I would take with me on a trip and it goes really well with the mani/pedi travel kit in this month’s box. The inside is lined and feels like it will be easy to clean (the inside of my makeup bags always look like a war zone).
Gilmore Girls Funko Pop! – Listed Value $10.99
I own a few Funko Pops but I never fully understood the obsession….until now. This is one of the cutest Gilmore products I’ve ever seen! There were three variations available in this box – Sookie, Lorelai, or Rory.
I received Rory and she’s wearing her Chilton school uniform. The uniform is so cute and I love that it features the school crest.
You can see the other two variations on the back of the box and Lit-Cube is currently selling two packs of each combination in their store so you can complete the collection! I wonder if this means there are more Gilmore Pops to come. Can you imagine a little Luke or Jess Funko Pop!
Verdict: This was a good Stars Hollow Monthly for me. While there were only three main items in the box, each one felt like a totally solid addition to the box. I think the mani/pedi travel kit and makeup bag go together really well. Plus, I always love items that are useful and I can definitely use both of those. The quotes on both items were also perfect. The art print felt more like an addition just so there would be more than three items and I’m not sure about the $4.95 value placed on it but it’s a cute filler item. Personally, I just didn’t need it because the other items were enough for me. The main item in the box, for me, was the Funko Pop! I would never have guessed that Gilmore Girls would be the tv show I want collectibles for but now I want a tiny Stars Hollow Funko Pop! family!
What do you think about this month’s Stars Hollow Monthly box?
