Stars Hollow Monthly Subscription Box Review – April 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.
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
This month’s menu from Luke’s Diner lists out all of our items and mentions the new Stars Hollow Scent of the Month Club and a sneak peek of the Stars Hollow Adult Coloring Book that will be available soon!
The back of our menu now features an add for horseback rides at the Dragonfly Inn. It also has an add for ÖÖÖ-BER with the simple instructions to just “Call Kirk’s Mom”!
In Ombia Paratus Magnet – Bonus Item
This month’s bonus item was a magnet that paid homage to one of the more surreal moments from the Netflix series.
I loved seeing the old gang back together so I enjoyed the goofiness of them traipsing through Stars Hollow one last time.
Exclusive Genuine Leather RFID-Blocking Passport Wallet – Listed Value $34.99
I bought a passport wallet for a trip about two years ago and it was so nice to keep everything organized! This passport wallet feels very sleek and slim. The leather is a deep plum color and the In Omnia Paratus silver emblem stands out nicely.
In addition to the slot for your passport, the inside of the wallet features four credit card slots and one larger pocket behind those slots. It’s a great size for keeping track of your passport, money, and tickets on your trip. The leather feels really soft and the construction feels sturdy!
Exclusive Life & Death Brigade Umbrella – Value $9.99
It wouldn’t be a Life & Death Brigade box without a reference to the big jump! This travel size umbrella is slightly smaller than the umbrellas they used but it’s much more convenient for me!
Here’s a look at the umbrella opened (inside! ack!), with the quote visible. The umbrella features a top hat and two champagne glasses with the quote “You jump, I jump, Jack”. Underneath the quote, it says “Honorary Member of the Life & Death Brigade”.
Here’s a closer look at the detail.
Exclusive In Omnia Paratus Shirt – Value $24.99
Rounding out our Life & Death Brigade box is this shirt. This features the phrase In Omnia Paratus as well as the translation – “ready for anything”. The umbrella and raindrop design is really cute! I like how soft the shirt feels because sometimes printed shirts can be a little stiff. But this shirt felt slightly worn in and very soft. I also really like the color. I’ve mentioned before that shirts in boxes aren’t my favorite thing because I just don’t wear a ton of fandom t-shirts but this one has made it into my clothing rotation so I’m happy with it!
Verdict: This month’s box was slightly delayed which is why the review is up a little later than usual! But the quality of the items in this Life & Death Brigade box felt worth it. While there were only three items, each one feels really practical to me. I really like the passport wallet and the umbrella will be a nice thing to keep on hand. I even liked the shirt which I typically don’t love in subscription boxes. Nothing in this month’s box blew my mind but everything was really nice and fit the theme well.
What do you think about this month’s Stars Hollow Monthly box?
