Write Your Letters to Santa in Style with These Stationery Subscription Boxes

April Stettner
ByApril StettnerDec 16, 2021 | 6 comments

With the holidays quickly approaching (eek!) I started reminiscing about the long-lost art of the pen pal. For me, writing letters to a loved one or new friend always seemed to elicit a different kind of joy. Maybe for you, your letter writing has never dwindled, or maybe you are just in the mood to get inspired!

So, if beautiful stationery, a well-timed card, and rare sticker sheets make you giddy-this curated list is for you. I've organized these subscriptions by individual interests and needs. I've also included honorable mentions to help augment some of the larger subscriptions. 


Best For Kids or Lovers of Nostalgia: Stickii

  STICKII CLUBWhen I first discovered Stickii Club I fell in love with the pages of adorable sticker sheets (is that a milk carton smiling?! Insects doing cool things?! A sticker sheet of desserts?! Sign.Me.Up)

At first, I thought it was just a subscription centered around stickers which can be the perfect way to finish off a letter to Santa or your friend that loves ramen (yes, they have adorable stickers of noodles!) But their subscriptions also include:

  • 3+ Stationery Sheets
  • 6+ Sticker Sheets
  • 1 Storage Inserts

STICKII Club monthly sticker subscription has three styles to choose from (Cute, Vintage, or Pop). You'll enjoy endless varieties of stickers plus member perks in their shop and early access to new releases.

The Cost: All this for just $10/month plus shipping. Subscribe here!

Check out our Stickii Review page to learn more. Ships to the US, Canada, and the UK

 

Best for the well-organized minimalist: Cloth & Paper

Cloth & PaperI'd liken Cloth & Paper to the Restoration Hardware of stationary. If you appreciate clean lines and upscale stationery, these subscriptions will pass the test. Cloth & Paper continually receives glowing reviews (they were even voted our 2021 reader choice winner!) Cloth & Paper offers three different subscription options (Stationery, Pens, or Both).

The Cost: Starting at $21.99 per month. Subscribe here! 

Check out our Cloth & Paper reviews page to learn more.

Free Shipping for US subscribers. International shipping will vary but at a discounted rate.

 

Best for creatives who want to give back: PaperGang

Papergang

Papergang is a stationery box by UK brand Ohh Deer. It is bright, festive, and curated for the individual who enjoys making a statement not just with beautiful stationery but also socially. PaperGang is a Monthly Subscription that includes between £20-40 worth of products and 4+ exclusive pieces of stationery designed by an artist. From the brand:

We like to give back as much as we can, which is why every box we sell helps to plant trees. Not only that, twice a year, we collaborate with charities that resonate with us. So far, we've worked with: Marine Conservation Society, Arthouse, Butterfly Conservation, Bee Conservation Society, ME Society, Switchboard LGBT+, Blurt Foundation, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

Cost: Starts at $19.86 (£15) per month. Subscribe here!

Honorable Mentions: Best Artisan Card Subscriptions

Is there anything better than finding the perfect card for that friend that loves The Office or Dolly Parton?

I’d like to see updated reviews of Cloth & Paper. A lot can change in three years since the site last went there. My tastes tend more toward elegant, sophisticated minimalist, so I appreciate the streamlined aesthetic of this one. Just unsure of product variety and quality.

Hi, Bee! ♡

Yes, I’ve heard so many great things about Cloth & Paper I’d like to get my hands on it as well. I agree; the aesthetic is very pleasing! I was unsure how often I would use planner aspects of the subscription (like the inserts).

I appreciate you reading, and I’ll make sure to update the community when we have the opportunity to give updated reviews on these subscriptions.

I am so glad to see these boxes on MSA, but I’d love to see more recent reviews. Many of the past reviews are from 2017-2019!! Which brings me back to my main complaint about the new website: these aren’t reviews, they’re just lists.

I currently have Postbox, as I signed up using their Black Friday deal from their email list. Nicely Noted is next on my list, but I’m not using MSA’s link until there are some recent reviews. I’m happy to give MSA the commission… as soon as MSA gives me reviews.

Hi, Lauren ♡

I agree with you; I’m hoping to get the opportunity to do updated reviews for all of these subscriptions.

If you had to pick one stationary subscription you’d like an updated review first, would it be Nicely Noted?

I’ve had my eye on Postbox to gift to a few friends for the holidays, so I like that you mentioned you are currently subscribed to it.

I appreciate you reading.♡

Hi, Lauren! ♡

Apologies if this comment appears out of order; I can sometimes be a bit technology challenged, ha 🙂

How did I not know about Snailbox?! I just went to peruse their webpage, and it looks right up my alley style-wise. It looks curated in a really fun and creative way. I understand your sentiment about Papergang; I wondered when it came time for holiday shopping.

I love that Postmark’d has been a great experience for you. That was second on my list to try, just because it has those creative details much like Snailbox.

Thank you for sharing your finds and insights on those subscriptions, and I’ll be adding those to the list of reviews to update in 2022. ♡

I’m stuck between Nicely Noted and Snailbox! Snailbox intrigues me because it doesn’t have a consistent style (at least not when I look at their past boxes online) so some cards may be appropriate for some personalities (both senders and recipients). Nicely Noted seems more versatile, like all cards could be send to anyone, and like the brand has a specific “look” (again, just based on their website). I feel like Snailbox would be first on my list, then Nicely Noted, the Paper Gabg, though that’s partly because I imagine shipping from the UK is brutal and I don’t want to get attached to the box. Haha.

I’m also curious about Cloth & Paper. I’ve thought it was a planner subscription this whole time and never given it any solid attention but if it has cards and (one can hope) actual stationery, I’d like to learn more about that one too.

Postmark’d is a fabulous box; Anne provides the best customer service and the cards are always unique and classy, never cartoonish or too trendy. I love that box!
