Items in the boxes are centered around a theme. The theme of this month’s box is “2017 Is YOUR Year: New Year Resolutions”. What better way to get psyched for the year than with some cute, inspiring stationery!
Learn a New Language Washi Tape – Listed value $3.50
I always resolve to learn new languages, and… sometimes it sticks. This language tape is a fun way to remind me of my goal!
I’m not exactly sure what language the tape is in, though… I think Japanese? As I mentioned, I’m still working on learning a language, so I’d rather not make a really bad guess!
The tape isn’t terribly sticky, so it’s probably best for planner or scrapbook decorating, rather than hanging things or crafting. I do wish the color palette was a bit cuter. The dark red and black are just kind of harsh. I’d have loved something just a smidge brighter.
Happy Everyday Stamps Set – Listed Value $6.00
These stamps are so petite! They’ll be great for decorating smaller planner pages.
Some of these wooden stamps have days of the week details on them, while others have the cutest weather-inspired images. I wish there was a stamp pad included in the box, too—luckily I have a few I can play with.
Make More Money Tissue Pack – Listed Value $2.00
These tissues are pretty tiny. Each one is a little bigger than a business card. I love the idea of having a stack of money to hold out when someone asks me for a tissue, hehe.
As far as tissues go, these certainly aren’t luxurious. They’re pretty standard in terms of softness. But I do like the novelty of them, and I appreciate how their smaller size makes them slip into my purse with ease.
Make Sports Your Friend Stickers – Listed Value $2.50
These sports stickers are adorable! I love that they’re just a teensy bit puffy.
I think all of these stickers are focused on volleyball, which is cool. Football? Soccer? I’ve seen stickers for those before, but not volleyball! The shoes are my favorite. I love the colors and the sporty designs!
2017 Is the Year of the Rooster Pen – Listed Value $3.00
This pen is very simple but so pretty! I love the metallic detail on the clip.
I’ve read that the Rooster symbolizes punctuality. I’ll have to use this pen with my planner to help transfer some of that punctual spirit!
2017 Desktop Calendar – Listed Value $3.00
This calendar is cute and quirky. It sits on an easel of sturdy cardboard and features a sew of cute images!
The main theme is this silly chick. I suppose it’s the baby version of the Rooster!
There’s space for notes, too. You can’t get too detailed in the super small spaces on this item, but it’d be handy for ticking off days.
Eat Healthy Wooden Clips in Fruits – Listed Value $4.00
These clips are a delightful pairing of fruit shapes on top of bitty little clothespins.
You can use this clips wherever—as clips for small snack bags, to hold journal pages together… there are all kinds of possibilities. There’s also a length of twine inside the package. Use these clips as a garland along this line, or treat it as a casual way to hang photos.
Verdict: I thought this box was very cute. Though the items inside weren’t always the highest quality, they were always very cute and unlike anything I’d seen before. I felt like all of the prices were just a bit high for what these little trinkets were (the value of the box using these prices is $24.00, which is a bit further above the $15.00 price than I would’ve expected). If you’re a collector of cute stationery, this box would be a fun way to add to it. But know that the items are more for show/aesthetic value than practicality.
