Well, it was a long time coming but here we are – finalllllly getting to gush about the December 2021 OwlCrate box! Continued global shipping catastrophe meant this box was greatly delayed, but this BOOK, just look at it … 

Here’s a look at everything included:

It has become a tradition to receive a wooden tree ornament in the December box from Juniper and Ivy Designs, and this time the creators were inspired by The Mermaid, The Witch, and the Sea to create this beautiful ornament. I love Juniper and Ivy Designs – their level of detail is unparalleled. And hey, you could just have this ornament hanging out all year! 

Oversized ceramic mug! Ok, I love all the mugs we get, but honestly – I need waaaaaaay more coffee than those itty bitty’s can hold! So I’m so super happy that the last instalment in the Reading Through the Seasons Drinkware Collection included this beautiful oversized mug! Which was designed by Macarena Chomik – who did an amazing job on the whole yearly collection! – and features a quote from Toni Morrison. 

It wouldn’t be right to have a “Beneath The Waves” theme and not give nod to Percy Jackson! Chatty Nora designed this dry erase magnetic schedule board inspired by the series – this set also came with a magnetic dry erase pen. 

Schwab fans will be happy to see the lovely spinning pendant necklace in December’s box! Inspired by A Darker Shade of Magic, @paperbackbones designed this necklace featuring the quote As Travars on one side and a itty bitty Grey London on the other side. 

Keeping screens and glasses streak free will be easy with this gorgeous cleaning cloth inspired by Fable … which I still need to read! On one side is a scene illustrated by @Nicole.Deal.Art and a hand lettered quote from @MeaningfulLetters_ on the other side! 

Janine Lecour has blessed us all with another beautifully designed, reusable item! This foldable, reusable shopping bag conveniently collapses into itself for easy travel and the gorgeous illustration was inspired by To Kill A Kingdom! 

The last enamel pin in the 2021 set designed by Icey Designs! The colours in this lovely mermaid tail are super pretty! 

Lastly, the book! Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen! I cannot wait to get reading this story, and can we just appreciate how incredibly beautiful this OwlCrate edition is?? Exclusive turquoise cover, signed by the author, with an author letter, reversible dust jacket artwork by Laylie Frazier, golden gilded edges, exclusive end papers, AND a full cover hardcover! I mean, come on!! This is truly the nicest special edition book OwlCrate has done, in my opinion.
