This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Stars-Hollow-Monthly-February-2017-0001

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).

This month included a note about the plain shipping box. One of the items this month was too big for the regular Stars Hollow Monthly box.

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 latest flavor in the Stars Hollow Coffee Club!

We also have new ads for Kim’s Antiques and Hewes Bros Gas. It’s always fun when they mix it up and add new local business ads on the info card.

Exclusive Luke’s Diner Menu Organizer – Listed Value $39.95

The organizer is the big item of this box and the reason we didn’t get the typical shipping box this month. The binder feels padded and soft. This has a magnetic closure and “Luke’s Menu” on the cover.

The inside of the organizer features a pocket and four card slots. The first page of the organizer is Luke’s rule list for diner patrons. There’s also a convenient pen holder.

The organizer is set up so you can start using it any time of year because you fill in the day/month/year information. The first section has pages for monthly calendars with an area to write out goals.

This is followed by “week to week” pages. These make up the bulk of the organizer. These pages give you four blocks for each day and a small notes section at the bottom of each page.

The organizer ends with a few pages for notes.

Planner Sticker/Bookmark Pack by NerdyGrlDesigns – Listed $5.99

The sticker/bookmark pack is the perfect addition to the organizer. This set from NerdyGrlDesigns comes with a bunch of stickers that are great for organizing your tasks. My favorites are the individual characters stickers (there’s a tiny Paul Anka!) and the little circle stickers with symbols for coffee, tv, shopping, etc.

The magnetic bookmark is of Lane. I had never used magnetic bookmarks before I received one in a subscription box but I really love using them so I’m happy to add to my collection!

Umbrella Pen with Usable Sticker – Listed Value $1.99

This bright pen is in the shape of an umbrella. The attached sticker also features an umbrella and the “You jump, I jump, Jack” quote. I’m a sucker for a novelty pen and this makes sense with the organizer, although it is too large to fit in the pen slot. But it’s a cute addition to the box!

Exclusive Oy With The Poodles Already Socks – Listed Value $9.99

These black socks feature the classic Lorelei quote “Oy with the poodles already”. I really like getting socks or accessories instead of t-shirts because I’m way more likely to wear them. These socks are soft and the poodle is so cute!

Bonus Valentine!

A cute addition to the February box was a valentine with a Jolly Rancher sucker. The Valentine I received said “I love you, you idiot!”, Rory’s choice of words for Dean. This was a sweet little bonus item. Lit-Cube also made some Valentine’s available for download.

Verdict: This was a fun month of Stars Hollow Monthly. I always love it when some of the items work together. I think the big ticket item – Luke’s Menu Organizer – is really nice. I like that I can use it as an organizer now and refill it to keep using it as an organizer. But I’m also thinking about using it to hold recipes or getting little clear binder pockets to use it for takeout menus. Either way, I can see myself using this. I really like the sticker/bookmark pack and that pairs nicely with the organizer and pen. The socks were a nice addition and overall, this is a box where I’ll actually use each item. The Valentine’s Day card was a nice surprise!

What do you think about this month’s Stars Hollow Monthly box?

  1. I like how they specify that the sticker is usable. What would an unusable sticker be??

  2. If i ordered in February (12th to be exact), would then I get the March box instead of the February box?

    • If you subscribed in February, your first box will be the March box. Hope that helps! 🙂

  3. I had to unsubscribe for financial reasons, but I love GG and I love this SHM box! Please keep reviewing and I’ll live vicariously. 😀

  4. I think this subscription is much better coordinated than Litcube. It seems like the items are more consistently quality (although to be fair, the same planner with a different design was in a Litcube box).

    • I noticed a difference in the curation of LitCube after she launched the Stars Hollow box, too. It just seemed like she was distracted with this box and LitCube didn’t have the same uniqueness in items anymore that had attracted to me when I first subscribed. Now she’s launching a third box, for charm necklaces, and I hope she doesn’t stretch herself out even more, especially since it seems like it is a family operation. (By the way, I also noticed that the planner was the same as the Harry Potter one in a previous LitCube box. I guess if you find a vendor you like, it’s easier than taking a risk with someone else.)
