The focus is on Back To School for September, along with excitement and possibility. They talk about how much they loved shopping for new school supplies as kids, which is exactly where I can track back my love of stationery and office supplies.
Here, they give you a breakdown of all of the items! Let’s get into it!
Good Vibes Holla-Gram Card – Value $5
This card is the COOLEST! I don’t think I’ve seen a holographic card before, and I love that this one has a matching envelope as well! “Good Vibes” is the perfect sentiment with this silvery rainbow delight for the eyes. I feel better just looking at this, so it should do the trick for anyone who needs to receive some good vibes in their time of need.
“Don’t Dream It, Be It” Card – Value $4?
This immediately reminds me of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I was really into it in High School and would go to or perform in midnight showings every Saturday at my local indie movie house. This kraft paper card illustrates an optimistic outlook to anyone who receives it and the sentiment is really a great one.
“The World Needs More People Like You” Card – Value $5
There’s that Mr. Rogers quote “Always look for the helpers” that circulates (usually in meme form) after large tragedies, and this card makes me think of those helpers. I hope we all know people on the receiving end of this card that fill the world with positive actions, words, and being. This muted grey and gold letterpress card has a great design that includes some wind, sunshine, mountains, and waves if you look closely.
Color Me In Kraft Cards – Value $0.50? (Buy a dozen for $6)
Adult coloring books were really big there for a while and apparently still are. This is the greeting card version of that trend. Coloring is supposed to be calming, so you can either color this yourself before sending off or keep it blank for the receiver to enjoy. Maybe even a bit of both!
Gold Striped Washi Tape – Value $1.40? (buy a set of 5 for $6.99)
You know me, you know I love the washi tape. I’m pretty surprised that with how much I have, I still receive patterns and colors I don’t already own! This metallic gold wiggly-lined tape is great for dressing up some otherwise boring envelopes.
Dream Eraser – Value $0.25?
They’ve included a nice big fat eraser for those mistakes we all make. I’m partial to mechanical pencils and some don’t come with their own erasers, so it’s good to have some lying around. This one has a blue/green watercolor effect with the word “DREAM” across it to remind you to always have that sliver of your mind not dedicated to harsh reality.
Medium Patterned Binder Clips, Set of 12 – Value $5
These are some prettttty cute jazzed up binder clips for those of us who want a little flair in even the most mundane of office accessories. You get 12 in the set which includes six different designs in my preferred black and white palette. The white with little geometric shapes are my favorite!
“I can + I will” Print – Value $2?
Write Love Parcel always includes a print, and this month’s is by Laura Bell. The “I can + I will” quote is so positive, of course.
They use the back of the print to give you info on how to get discounts with their referral program.
Pencils and Sharpener Set – Value $4.00?
This isn’t listed on the info card, so I’m going to chalk it up to an awesome bonus item! I have a “thing” for metal pencil sharpeners because they look so darn classy, so I love that they’ve included a silver one with a couple of pencils this month! And how cute is it that they tied it all together with twine?
Stamps – Value $1.96
Of course, we round out this month with some stamps! These are really pretty and have such a vintage feel to them.
Verdict: This month’s Write Love Parcel was wonderful! I thought they did an amazing job on the curation and I loved the positive Back To School vibe. The holographic card really took the cake for me, along with the special bonus gift that included the pencil sharpener! After totalling up the values I could find online or make an educated guess, I came up with a little over $29 for this $28 (cost) box, so I’m totally fine with that for all of the new treasures I got.
