Idea Chíc Parcel Post Subscription Review + Coupon- Summer 2017
The Idea Chíc Parcel Post is a seasonal (quarterly) stationery and paper subscription box. It’s produced by Idea Chíc, a husband-and-wife duo who run their letterpress and print shop out of Denver, Colorado. Their Parcel Post subscription box contains newly released items, popular existing pieces, and exclusives made just for subscribers.
Idea Chíc also has a monthly subscription box called the Idea Chíc Stationery Box Set. In addition to being more frequent, that box has different themes month to month, which are sometimes inspired by the seasons and sometimes not. If you like this box, you might want to check it out!

This box has such a laid-back, playful charm. I love that they note that this box was created “at 5,280 feet” in Denver, Colorado.
On the top of the box when you open it up, you will find a card indicating the month/season that your box is for (you will receive one each season).
Coasters are the perfect gift for a perfectionist like myself, so I was happy to see these cute cork coasters. I did find it a little odd that there were only 3 and not 4, but I will still use all 3 of these guys in my home. Cork is perfect for coaster too because it is absorbent. They have this cute vine print on them.
Confetti Birthday Wood Veneer Greeting Card – Value $5.00
It’s always nice to have greeting cards on standby because inevitably you will need them at some point, right?! I am terrible at remembering to buy cards, so I am happy to have this super cute one ready to go for the next birthday. The front of this card has text on it, while the back is blank so that you write a personalized message for the recipient. The cardstock is thick and the print is adorable, definitely a cute option!
Dahlia and Bee Gift Tags, Set of 4 – Value $4.00
I don’t typically use gift tags unless it’s Christmas, but these darling dahlia-printed ones are so cute. You could use these on a package or gift bag for any occasion. They are blank on the bag for you to write a message or name, too. These are another nice-to-have for those rare occasions when they are needed.
Hip Hip Hooray Cloth Bag – Value $2.00?
I like the idea of different and unique gift packing, so this small cloth sachet is such a cute idea. It’s a thin bag that is pretty small, but if you wanted to make a cookie mix and give that as a gift, this would be perfect to put a plastic bag in there. You could also use this to house a number of small little gifts. Very cute! I just estimated this value, as I couldn’t find it online.
Polka Dot Thank You Card Set of 5 – Value $10.00?
These blank black and white polka dot cards are the perfect way to send your appreciation for a gift, job well done, or favor given. The set includes 5 cards. I didn’t see these online so I guessed at the value.
New Home Housewarming Card – Value $4.00?
What an adorable card to send or give to a friend, family member, or co-worker who has just moved into a new home! I love cards for these kinds of things because buying a house is an exciting and life-changing moment for most people. I couldn’t find this online, so I guessed at the value based on other Idea Chic cards.
The Verdict: While stationery isn’t something I usually buy, this box is a really cute and easy way to stock up on cards for a number of different occasions. I estimated the value of the box to be about $32.50, and the cost of the subscription being $30 for one box sent each season. That’s pretty on par with the cost of each box. All in all a great deal for the convenience of having these cards available to you when you need them!
