Before I get into this post, I have to apologise for the photos – I haven’t transferred all my photo editing software to my new laptop as yet but didn’t want to delay the review so apologies if they have an odd hue to them…
Rather excitingly, I’ve been sent a brand new subscription box to review. We all know I love finding things in the mail box, so I was contacted by Honey Tree Stationers who asked if I’d like a sneaky peek at their first box. It’s gorgeous.
I chose the Stationery Lovers Club – a selection of at 7 items from Honey Tree, like “greeting cards, postcards, notecards, gift tags and hand drawn prints ready to frame”. My favourite items are at the top – a pretty notecard and envelope set with autumnal leaves. I love how they’ve themed the box for the change of season.
The rest is super cute as well – the satchel print is going to go perfectly on my new noticeboard at work, and I already know who to give the sausage dog postcard to. The cards are charmingly drawn, and they have loads more on their bespoke stationery website – it makes me wish that I was one of those really organised people who sends family christmas cards, and cards just to say hello to acquaintances. I imagine sitting at a writing desk with a sturdy fountain pen in my hand, writing on the beautiful thick card. I mean, my writing is a hideous mess so I’d probably ruin the cards but in an ideal world it’d be perfect.
HoneyTree also supports Post Pals, a charity that is “dedicated to making seriously ill children and their siblings smile by the sending of cards, letters, little gifts, support and friendship” – they will donate £1 from every subscription to the charity. What a wonderful idea.
If you sign up before 30th September, you can get 50% off your first box with the code HTP50.
That makes the box positively bargainous for ephemera fans.
