-Ear muffs (Caraval inspired)
-Hand warmer, Sky in the Deep inspire with quote
-Book sleeve, with quote inspired from Sorcery of Thorns
This was a fun box to get right before the crazy holiday rush. Every thing was of the warm and cozy varieties, to keep us bookworms warm. Although, I will say I was sadden by the ear muffs from the box- they were beautiful and soft, but way too small. I would have loved to use them and I tried, but they don’t reach the main parts of my ears-only brushes the tips.
The hand warmer on the other hand was super cool, and fun to watch too! Also, HOT!
Some of the their items were just ideal for OwlCrate to do. They added in color pencils and a coloring book . The coloring book was full of all the enamel pin designs they did this year (2019) and there were 13 of them, since there were two n one monthly box. I absolutely loved this and can’t wait to try it out. Because we all know how stressful the holidays can be for everyone- whatever it be work or family- I myself worked multiple Jammed shifts- so I was pretty much dead on my feet
The other big thing I loved from this box was the book sleeve! I still use the other book sleeve from years ago that OwlCrate included in a box..It lives in my go to bag, so I can always make sure the only book (which I of course have on my at all times) is protected at all the time. This new one is great, nice design and quote on it and some good padding in it to.
Lastly, we come to the book. Although I’m not too excited to read this months book, OwlCrate did a great job making this one an exclusive edition. Its way too pretty to just sit on my shelf, I will have to read it soon!
Rating of box: 3 out of 5 stars.
