I've been a fan of the Owlcrate subscription boxes on and off for over a year and I have loved every single box. I have, however, not ventured out of that little comfort zone before, despite the many, many many many bookish boxes now available out there. This was my first time subscribing to FaeCrate, and I was pleasantly surprised with the 2019 December box.
The box included a hardcover copy of Elizabeth Tammi's December 2019 release The Weight of a Soul, along with a signed nameplate (which I am always excited to get in a box). Along with this highlight, the goodies that were included were:
A silver collector's coin with the quote “Every story has a story” from Renee Ahdieh's The Wrath and the Dawn (one of my favorite things from the box).
A full 2020 12-month calendar with original work from the amazingly talented Gabriella Bujdoso.
The opportunity and info to download and read the e-book Olympian Challenger by Astrid Arditi.
A “Polaroid” of Zelie and Nailah inspired by Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bone series.
A print inspired by Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto.
A ceramic piece with the quote “What an unequaled gift for disaster you have.” inspired by Naomi Novik's Uprooted (also a huge favorite).
An iridescent bookmark with the quote “It takes one word to make the whole world stop and listen. All you need is the right one.” from Jay Kristoff's Endsinger.
A lovely sky blue, white and yellow set of 4 buttons inspired by Adrienne Young's Sky in the Deep.
And a wristband with the inspiring quote “There is greatness in you. It matters little where that power comes from.”.
I did not receive the sweatshirt that would have been included in the box per my own selection (and I might be regretting it a little bit, but I wanted to get a beginner's small taste of my first FaeCrate subscription). Despite this, overall I would say that for the price of the box, the items included are well worth it. They're all top quality, varied, well matched with the December theme of “Of Legends and Lore”.
I will definitely be giving this subscription box another try in the near future.
