Covet Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon – January 2016
Covet Crate is a brand new subscription box for professional women! This is their first box, and subscriptions are currently sold out, but you can buy this January box in their shop section.
(Also – if you want an email alert when subscriptions open up, make sure to sign up for Covet Crate News alerts at the end of this post).
There are two versions of this box, and this review is of the $84.95 Lady Boss box.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Covet Crate
The Cost: $84.95 for the Lady Boss Box, $44.95 for the Girl Boss Box

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your wishlist or want list!
This box comes with a magazine that is a mix of tips, profiles, and info on the items included in your box. I don’t say this often about the info section of subscription boxes, but this is a great read!
I decided to take a lot of pictures of the magazine since I was so impressed:
(This box was sent out before the new year started – so this planner arrived in time for all subscribers).
This planner is part organization, part inspiration! Here is a look inside:
More on what makes this planner different:
Weekly Pages: The weekly pages takes an overview of what you want to accomplish for the week, sprinkled with prompts for positive declarations and #truthbombs. Each week has space for your Core Desired Feelings, daily to-do’s, and a list of 3 Things to accomplish for the week — because once you finish your priorities, everything else is gravy.
End of Week Check-in: An essential pause after your week that guides you to review the past seven days (Did it feel the way you wanted it to?) This journalling spread can be used at the end of the week or throughout, as a mid-week reflection — whatever feels right for you. Each spread has a unique Soul Prompt from Danielle — questions you may have never asked yourself; gratitude nudges; and space to think about what you want to change in your life. The weekly spread also has a page for free-writing your ideas, desires, and wisdom for 100 days of journaling.
I’m excited to use this! Plus I love gold – so that’s just an awesome bonus! And speaking of gold…
Create 365 The Happy Planner Stickers – Value $15
These each have 5 sheets of gold foil stickers. I’m particularly excited about the workout stickers. Does giving yourself a gold star still work as a motivator if you are 31? I hope so!
One Canoe Two Lined Notebooks – Value $12 total
The gold foil trend continues! The illustrations for these notebook covers are gorgeous, and I love that Covet Crate profiled the women who started One Canoe Two in the magazine!
More on this book from Danielle LaPorte:
The Fire Starter Sessions is the permission slip you’ve been waiting for — to fully want what you want and go for it, to expand your consciousness and your cash flow, to up the ante on your dreams, to be incredibly generous with your love.
This is a modern-day pep talk and soul-centered Q&A for people ready to shine brighter than they ever have.
And after these straight-talking sermons and burning questions about your truest desires — from career to relationships — you’ll be clear that the only permission you need to shine … is your own.
THIS IS WHAT YOU’LL GET…
The Fire Starter Sessions reframes popular self-help and success concepts to cut through dull thinking and fear, and get straight to one’s core desires, pragmatism, and courage — and burn some illusions to a crisp…
- Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress than the craving for balance itself.
- Being well-rounded is highly over-rated. When you focus on developing your true strengths you enter your mastery zone.
- Screw your principles, well, some of them. (They might be holding you back.)
- We have ambition backwards. Getting clear on how you want to feel in your life + work is more important than setting goals. It’s the most potent form of clarity that you can have, and it’s what leads to true fulfillment.
- Competency is for suckers. Your most valuable currency is what comes naturally to you. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone.
- You’re an artist, and that’s that. When we’re giving our best, we’re being artistic. When you’re bringing your whole self to the party, you’re making poetry happen — and you do it all the time, naturally.
Be the giver. Force it if you have to. Make generosity part of your growth strategy and you will cross that sacred divide where love is no longer a concept but is your soul made manifest. You. Giving. Love. Gorgeous.
This is a big book (300+ pages). Fortunately, the spacing and design keep it feeling like short bursts of info. I think I’ll add this to my nightly reading stack. (I need non-fiction at night, otherwise I run the risk of needing to stay up to finish a book!)
Leaner Creamer Travel Pack (10) – Value $10.95
I’ve seen Leaner Creamer so much in Instagram ads, but now I get to see it in real life! If you aren’t familiar:
Leaner Creamer is a delicious addition to your morning java that suppresses appetite and promotes weight loss with its coconut oil based infused with its proprietary all-natural blend of Citrus Aurantium Extract, Hoodia and Green Tea Extract. Our all-natural and non-dairy powder coffee creamer is made with the perfect hint of vanilla that will keep you coming back for more.
My husband and I don’t use creamer, but this will be good to have on hand when we offer guests coffee! And what a perfect pairing:
CARPO Coffee Atwater Breakfast Roast – Value $8
This coffee smells amazing, and it also is a subscription! Covet Crate included a coupon code for subscribers to save 25% off a membership!
Harvest Paper Co. Like A Boss Imprinted Pencils – Value $5.75
I LOVE these! (The only way I think you could improve them would be to use $ instead of S!)
Fleurt Collective Audrey Hepburn Quote Print – Value $5
FYI – the etsy $5 listings for this prints are for the PDF-only versions, so these are probably worth a little more than $5 – they are printed on quality cardstock.
Heidi Swapp Gold & Black Mini Notepads – Value $4
Heidi Swapp Minc Gold Binder Clips – Value $4
More gold desk goodies! These notepads are pretty small, so they might be better for scrapbooking, though.
Ready Pretty Styling Service Coupon – 25% off
At first, when I saw this in the box I thought it was jewelry. Nope – it is just the fanciest way to include a coupon in a subscription box!
Ready Pretty is an online styling service. Their stylists send you links, pictures and collages with item suggestions to buy based on your profile and styling needs.
Eliza Gwendalyn Sterling Silver Pendant – Value $125
This is a bonus item included for the first subscribers to this box. Here is a better look:
I think it is a nice touch that they included a bonus gift for inaugural subscribers, and I hope they continue to add in extra perks for loyal subscribers!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $128. I think that is pretty great for a $85 box. To me, this box is practical and also inspirational, and the fact that they also managed to include a good value is very impressive for a first box! I think it can be a challenge to put together this type of box and never have it feel like you are talking down to your subscribers, but in my opinion, Covet Crate nailed it! I can’t wait to see what’s in future boxes!
And I love all things gold, so this box gets extra bonus points from me! (And packaging + presentation = A+!)
The one thing to call out with the price is that the Lady Boss Box would definitely be an expensive subscription if you did all 12-months, so I’d love to see them offer a quarterly subscription option as well.
What do you think of the first Covet Crate box? If you are interested in buying this box I reviewed, it is available in their shop section.
