There are hundreds of subscription boxes out there & in my “The Subscription Box Chronicles” series I hope to showcase some of the more interesting boxes available & boxes that I enjoy that I have tried.
Today’s subscription box focuses on: Busy Bee Stationery.
This is a SPOILER WARNING before you scroll down- this review is for the April Busy Bee Stationery Subscription Box, if you want to be surprised wait til after you get yours before you scroll further!
Each Busy Bee Stationery box consists of 5-10 wonderfully assorted items that often have a “theme”. This month’s theme is: “The Busy Traveler“. The 9 items inside were wonderfully curated to the theme & I will go through each one.
The Busy Traveler est. 2015 Busy Bee Stationery Notebook
Uni Jetstream Ballpoint Pen 0.7 mm Rubber Body Series in Metallic Orange
Me & My Big Ideas Mambi Chips Stickers (4 sheets)
7gypsies Travel Charms (3 pcs.)
Dear Lizzy Roller Date Stamp
Jim Holtz Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon
Write Notepads & Co. Jumbo Pencils
Magnesium Brand 2 holed Pencil Sharpener
Authentique Authentic Life Cards in Explore (36 cards)
All together I would say this box has $46-48 worth of items in it. What I love most about this particular box is that each item came with an item well suited to it, such as the Roller Date Stamp & the stamp ink, the Jumbo Pencils & the pencil shapener, etc. I didn’t have to be stuck with a stamper with no ink or have no way of sharpening my pencils. They thought of everything! Busy Bee Stationery really curated a helpful, fun box that made sense to the theme & each item felt worthy of being in the box. I didn’t feel anything was just “tossed” in like some subscription boxes tend to do by throwing in sometimes very random & unnecessary items that don’t make sense. The Busy Bee Stationery Box was wonderful, on theme & had contents that were well-worth the price of the subscription box.
My favorite items were the Busy Bee Stationery Notebook because it was very sturdy, well-made, & had sections. The Uni Jetstream Pen, which wrote so easy, glidey & felt so comfortable to hold. & the Dear Lizzy Roller Date Stamp, which has many different settings that makes it super useful for everything from scrapbooking to using in a journal, etc. I’ll get the most use out of those items.
A month-to-month subscription is $39.90, a 3-month subscription is $109.70 & a 6-month subscription is $214.40.
