Stars Hollow Monthly Subscription Box Review – June 2016
Stars Hollow Monthly is a brand new monthly subscription box that sends you Gilmore Girls inspired items!
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (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

Here’s the back of the opened info brochure – which is designed like a Luke’s Diner takeout menu! So cute. I love how they have mock ads for Doose’s Market and a want-ad for employment for Kirk. If you’ve watched the show you know it’s sort of a joke how Kirk just does everything and is everywhere!
Here’s the inside of the info sheet. I think it’s super cute.
Exclusive Coffee Cupcake Bath Bomb – value: $5.50
This smells amazing! I can’t wait to use it – I think coffee is one of the best smells in the world.
Gilmore Girls Inspired Post Cards, 3-Pack – value: $9
These are great! I like the artwork a lot. Here’s a better look…
I’m excited to give the first one (“I love you, you idiot”) to my husband. He watched Gilmore Girls all the way through with me (after it aired) so he’ll get it. I think I’ll put the last one up on my wall, the one of Rory and Paris in their pajamas from when they were being initiated into the Puffs (one of Chilton’s/their private school’s secret societies) in the middle of the night. The hashtag says #iwokeuplikethis. Cute!
In Omnia Paratus Silk Ribbon Bracelet – value: $19.95
This bracelet is a wrap bracelet you tie on your wrist. It has a little charm on it that says “in omnia paratus” with a little umbrella dangling from it. It’s very cute! That Latin phrase is the motto of the Life and Death Brigade, a secret society at Yale that Rory finds. It means “ready for anything.”
“Oy with the Poodles Already” Quote Wallet – value $24.95
This clutch/wallet’s design is a classic Lorelai-ism, from I think the first episode. Cute design, and definitely a Gilmore Girls “inside joke”/reference for fans.
Here’s a look inside the wallet and a closer look at the charm on the bracelet.
Verdict: This was a cute first Stars Hollow Monthly box! I think they did a good job picking items that represent some classic moments, aspects, and quotes from the show. I also love the design of the info sheet. As far as value goes, everything adds up to $59.40, which I’m happy with.
