Ahhhh! I am so excited to share this with you! This is my first official owlcrate unboxing (without knowing what would be in it).
I was really excited about this one because of the theme: sailors and ships. Owlcrate said if you like the sea and pirates that this box was for you…ummm hello I love all those things. Once again, shipping was pretty fantastic. I received my notification about it being shipped either Thursday or Friday and received it by Monday. Even though there was a weather delay!
Okay, on to the review and what was inside. Reminder, owlcrate is about 29.99 a month not including shipping. You can wait and order past boxes if they have any left (if you want to know what’s in the box and not have it be a surprise) or you can do different monthly subscriptions. I just started a 3 month subscription that I asked for for my birthday to try it out.
Compass necklace: the necklace is super cute. Fingers crossed my sensitive skin can handle it. I can totally see me wearing it in the summer with some of my nautical clothing.
Octopus notepad: I thought this notepad was adorable but I might give it away as a gift. Every yr when we go to the cape we stay at my cousins cottage so this would be a cute addition to their thank you basket. I love that some of the items in the boxescan totally be given away.
Tea Towel: ummmm yes please. What else does one think of when you are out to sea? I’ve already added it to our kitchen items
Tape: this one, I’m not so sure about. I love that it looks like a mermaid or fish scale but I’m not sure if I will use it. I figured if anything I could use it for wrapping presents
Pirate pin: every month owlcrate sends a pin, just like how the bookish box almost always does a bookmark. The pins are cute but I’m going to run out of bags to put them on!
Note and signature from the author: note from the author that explains why they wrote the book and what they hope to accomplish. I love these little personal tidbits. You get a sense of who the author is.
Daughter of the Pirate King: obviously I will do another review of the book. It sounds like an interesting and fun read. We will see what I think. At this point I am not sure if it will be considered young adult or too young for me but we will see!
That’s it for this review! Overall, I love the creativity and that the things each month are so different and usable. I have two more unboxings before I decide if I want another subscription with them.
Do you guys have a favorite monthly book subscription? I am always looking for new ones to try!
