You guys, this is the last EVER Outlander Box by theBookishBox — I’m still super sad over this, especially because I just love everything Outlander and the past boxes I’ve received have been so fantastic.
But this one? For being the last one ever was kind of a let down for me, which is really upsetting because I wanted it to be perfect. But I felt like something was missing, anyway here’s what was in the box and why I found it lacking.
Shirt from TheBookishBox which says Because I wanted you. More than I ever wanted anything in my life.
So here’s the thing, it’s a great quote, it’s what Jamie tells Claire on why he married her. But, we are already on season 3 in the show, and there are 8 books…I would have liked to see one of the shirts (because there have been others and I’ve liked those sayings more) be from maybe book 2-8.
Necklace from TheBookishBox that is a stack of books that say: Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager and Drums of Autumn — the first 4 in the series. I like this a little better than the shirt. I probably won’t wear the necklace but I’ll definitely make it into a Christmas Ornament or something.
Lip Balm from Cherry Pit Crafts. I usually like everything from Cherry Pit Crafts but I found the white chocolate scent meh.
Pouch by TheBookishBox. I actually really like this, it has Jamie and Claire’s wedding vows on it “Ye are Blood of my Blood, and Bone of My Bone, I give ye my Body, that we two might be One. I give ye my spirit, ’til our life shall be Done,” and has Standing Stones on the back. The pouch itself is really large but I think it will be perfect for my notebooks and things when we travel to England.
The last thing was a Wine Glass, also from TheBookishBox. It says: Outlander & Wine & Sassenach & Kilts. It is without a doubt, the smallest wine glass I have ever seen. I’m honestly going to use it for sipping whiskey because that’s closer to what it is size wise.
I don’t know you guys, I was really sad with this one. I was so excited and their one time boxes are almost always perfect that I’m shocked I didn’t like this one as much.
