When you open the Box of Shadows, you’ll find a handy “newspaper” styled insert featuring information about the box and the products that are included this quarter. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since Charmed debuted – I can remember that my father didn’t want to watch it and had claimed the living room TV, so my Mom and I laid on her bed and enjoyed the premiere together. Sadly, 20 years ago watching Charmed was age appropriate for me – so I think I’m dating myself here a bit!

20 Years Charmed Heathered T-Shirt – Listed Value $25

Of course, a logo tee is included in the inaugural box! The main image is a 20th Anniversary exclusive Charmed logo created by a superfan who helped to curate the box. The shirt itself is heathered purple, tagless and super soft – you know the kind I mean, the kind you want to sleep in! I’m not sure if there was a size preference available, but I did receive this shirt in a size M for review purposes and it’s a standard, true to size M unisex t-shirt.

Spirit Board Enamel Pin with Moveable Planchette – Listed Value $15

How fun is this moveable design! This enamel pin is around 2” wide x 1” high and features 2 pins on the back to keep it securely in place. This is a nod to the gift that Patty Halliwell left for her three daughters: “May this give you the light to find the shadows” and is a very fitting inclusion in this first box.

Halliwell Manor Miniatures: The Book of Shadows & The Attic Set – Listed Price $30 (Book of Shadows Listed at $12 + Attic Set Listed at $18)

Let the collection begin! These acrylic display pieces each come with a stand, and the note in the newspaper inclusion indicates that this is the first of many Halliwell Manor Miniatures that we can expect to receive from this subscription. The Attic measures about 7.5” high x 11.5” wide and the book of shadows is to scale measuring around 4” high and 2” wide. The detail is fantastic!

The Book of Shadows Leather Journal – Listed Price $35

Amazing! This hand-crafted leather journal is hand-dyed to look like the most iconic Charmed prop and namesake of this subscription box! While most of it is blank, there are a few replica spells peppered throughout. Obviously, this is an amazing find for a Charmed enthusiast!

Insert: Celebrate 20 Years of Charmed 

At the bottom of the box, I found this insert advertising the sale of the Charmed box set.

Verdict: This was an amazing first box from Charmed: Box of Shadows! I don’t see where any Charmed fan would complain about any of the items. They were all fun, appropriate for the inaugural box, and I love that they were designed by super fans and are exclusive and licensed products. Plus, the listed value total is about 2 times the cost of the subscription. Even if some of the listed values seem inflated, it feels like this is a good sub to subscribe to if you’re into collectible items – I can’t wait to build my Halliwell Manor set!

To Wrap Up:

Colette’s subscription addiction started innocently enough with a few beauty boxes in 2013. As her life has evolved, so have her subscriptions – and some of her favorites now include boxes that cater towards lifestyle (Popsugar Must Have), pets (BarkBox), and children (Gap Outfit Box and Mac & Mia).

  1. I have all of you beat…I am 73. My daughter got me hooked on reruns and I have seen the whole series twice plus a lot of individual shows. I like the box but is a little pricey for me. There is a replica of the original Book of Shadows full of pages just like the one shown but is extremely costly. Check it out!!!

  2. My favorites are the miniatures. If I could have miniatures of all my fandoms (SuperWhoLock, Charmed, Ghost Whisperer, Eureka, Haven, The Librarians, Warehouse 13, etc), I’d be so happy! Maybe someone could start a subscription like that?

    • If you find a subscription like that, I would give it all my sub money.

  3. As a HUGE fan of the show, seen about 5 times now, this box is so cool! I especially love the Book of Shadows and the Bay Mirror! Such a great touch for super fans!

  4. This is gorgeous! I have watched the entire show about four times now. I don’t think I’ll be bothering with the re-boot. I may just end up getting this box (even though it’s probably not meant for a 50 year-old).

    • When I saw “Box of Shadows,” I somehow thought it was a beauty box inspired by the CW tv show with a themed palette of eye shadows. It piqued my interest, but then I remembered the makeup I wore in the 90s would not suit me now. So I was super stoked when I realized what the box was, objects related to and inspired by the show. HALLIWELL MANOR MINIATURES? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??! Hell yes and more, please. This is brilliant, UNIQUE, and so much more than I could have imagined. Keep your tshirt and bumper stickers, and let me play with my Halliwell mansion pieces. More, please.

      • I was thinking the same thing. Eyeshadow palette inspired by the show. I love journals, too, though. So this is enticing. This is a well thought out box, and being a fan…it’s drawing me in despite the price.

    • Rosemary- How about someone about to turn 59?
