The Subscription Box Chronicles: Busy Bee Stationery- May Box Review

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 May 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: “Functional, Fun & Glittery“. The 10 items inside were wonderfully curated to the theme & I will go through each one.

I can’t tell you how many times I’m in need of these little guys but never have them on hand- now with Busy Bee Stationery‘s May box I have them on hand & they are so stylish & modern!

I haven’t used these yet but have a number of ideas awaiting them. I have used glitter glue before & loved it & I have to say these colors could not have been more well-suited to me! I adore purple & gold so I will get a lot of use from them.

Santoro Gorjuss Sticky Notes- You Bought Me Love, $10.49

This adorable sticky note booklet holds some adorably sweet & cute sticky notes that are “almost” to cute to use! These will last a nice long while & there are numerous sizes to get the job done!

Santoro Gojuss Neoprene Mouse Mat- On Top Of The World, $13.99

An item like this mouse mat is much-needed & will be well-loved at my house! My old one was a bit tattered & this one in both style & quality will make my desk look great & last for a long time to come!

Santoro Gorjuss Set of 3 Slim Ball Pens, $8.39

These pens write like butter; they have such a glide to them & are of beautiful ink colors. They write smoothly, feel great & comfortable in the hand & are so cute in the style of the print on them. They are amazing!

Santoro Gorjuss Pen & Pencil Pot, $8.39

Another useful item that will last & last. I was in need of a place to put my loose pencils & pens. Before this useful pot they were rolling about in my desk drawer & falling off my desk. Now they have a designated place & are being kept in style! I love this so much!

All together I would say this box has $78.55-85.00 worth of items in it. It is an extreme value & has wonderfully curated items that well suit the theme. This box was amazing to me & felt like Christmas with how jam-packed it was! Busy Bee Stationery has yet again highly impressed me with the way they put each month’s theme/items together.

Each item inside this month’s box all has a perfect purpose & is high quality. They are all wonderfully functional, highly fun & especially glittery.

My very favorite of all the items were all of the Santoro Gorjuss items because they are incredibly adorable & some of the cute little girls remind me of myself with their dark hair & bangs/fringe so I may be partial 😛 I just love that they are so useful- paper & pens can tend to be used up but something like a mouse mat/pad & a pen/pencil cup can be used & enjoyed for many, many  years to come so I feel this particular box really is functional for me.

Santoro clear full best BIG

A month-to-month subscription is $39.90, a 3-month subscription is $109.70 & a 6-month subscription is $214.40.
