Each box comes with a card detailing the brands and items included.


Books are A Uniquely Portable Shirt – Value $27.50

Each month will include an exclusive tee design from Appraising Pages just for The Bookish Box subscribers. I like the fit and fabric weight of this tee (100% preshrunk cotton). I went with the women’s fitted tee sizing, but they also have unisex tee sizing.



Coffee Reading Writing Shh… I’m Reading Mug – Value $12

Comfy Cozy Scarf Reading Is Sexy Coffee Sleeve – Value $12

These are both great items for a cozy winter box! My favorite is definitely the mug. I may gift the sleeve to someone who will use it more often than I will.


Hello World Paper Co. Gift Tags – Value $2?

Harry Potter themed gift tags! This makes me happier than 3 pieces of paper should!


Novel Adornment Mini Ornament – Value $5

This ornament is filled withhand-cut and curled vintage strips of the book by Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle: A Memoir. (FYI – Made with the pages of discarded and damaged vintage books no longer suitable for resale).

It’s a tiny ornament too, here it is in hand:


Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $58. (I estimated value on the Harry Potter tags, so that may be off a little bit). I think this is such a thoughtfully put together box, and I would recommend it as a great gift subscription for a book lover.

  1. This box is amazing! I’ve never seen a book box so perfectly curated. If I was a Harry Potter fan, I’d like it even more. This box really makes me want to sign up. The mug, coffee sleeve and ornament are such original bookish items (maybe not the mug but I love it regardless).

  2. ‘The Glass Castle’? Only my all time favorite book! It was supposed to be made into a movie (with Jennifer Lawrence) but haven’t heard any follow-up on that. Still, no actual book in this box?

  3. This box would make such a great gift to a book lover!

  4. I love the ornament! What a great idea.
