Stars Hollow Monthly Subscription Box Review – March 2017
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).
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!
Luke’s Diner Magnet – Bonus Item
This item wasn’t listed on the information card so it looks like a bonus! This magnet states “I’d rather be at Luke’s Diner”. This is a nice little addition. I feel like I’ve received an awful lot of Luke’s stuff over the course of my subscription so I’m fine with this being a smaller item.
Coffee Lip Scrub/Balm Duo by Black Tie Market – Listed Value $15.99
This set is from Black Tie Market which specializes in natural products. This set includes a lip scrub and balm in the scent Vanilla Arabica. The scent on both of these products is so strong and delicious. This does smell like a cup of strong vanilla coffee. Stars Hollow Monthly lists this item at $15.99 but the Black Tie Market site lists this gift set at $17.
This little tub gives you a decent amount of product (.5g). This scrub is 100% vegan and contains actual coffee grinds. I love a nice lip scrub and this left my lips feeling really soft. A lot of lip scrubs I come across are scented with a sweeter, fruit scent so I like having this coffee alternative.
The other half of this set is the lip balm. The scent is the same as the scrub and the main ingredients are kokum butter, meadowfoam oil, and hemp seed oil. I like this balm on its own and it’s really nice when you apply it after using the scrub.
Exclusive Stemless Wineglass Set – Listed Value $19.99
I love this set! I’ve always enjoyed the homeware items included in this subscription and these are perfect! Richard and Emily have some great comedic moments and this is one of my favorites. Comebacks like this remind me of Lorelai.
These wine glasses feel sturdy and are hand wash only.
The quotes feel pretty sturdy on the glass and I think they should be fine since I’ll be hand washing them.
Exclusive Throw Pillow Cover – Listed Value $14.99
Our final item also has a Richard quote – “What she tackles, she conquers”. This quote if from the episode where Rory is planning a DAR event which is during one of my least favorite Rory phases. But it’s a sweet quote from Richard! The pillow cover also has a cup of coffee and an umbrella. The design is cute and fits an 18 x 18″ pillow. The back of the case it plain white and there is a part of me that is slightly concerned about a white pillow but this will be a cute addition to a sofa or bed.
Verdict: I’ve been really pleased with the consistency of this box lately. Sometimes the listed values can feel a little high to me but this month felt pretty accurate. I liked the three items (and bonus magnet!) and felt the quality lived up to the cost of the box. The wine glasses were the biggest hit with me. I can always use more glasses and I loved the Richard and Emily quotes. The throw pillow cover is cute and features another Richard quote. The lip scrub and balm were a nice addition to the box and I always love supporting a smaller vendor.
