Unboxing: OwlCrate January 2023

“Courting the Fae”

This box absolutely blew me away – what a great way to start out the new year! I mean, the colour coordination alone is jaw-dropping but the high quality items and beautiful edition of the book sends it soaring high and away! Let’s get into this then!! (Remember you can use code TALES15 to save 15% off your first box in a new subscription).

Light up your bookshelves, your desk, or your night stand with this A Court of Dreams Display Board, officially licensed and inspired by A Court of Thorns and Roses and designed by Wolf and Bear Co. Also included was a plain acrylic board and white marker pen so you can create your own messages, notes, doodles and more! I love this item! 

It may seem small but another item I was super happy to receive in the box was this fabric tape measure! Featuring a quote from An Enchantment of Ravens and designed by Nerdy Ink, this is one of those items you don’t realize how much you use it until you have it in your life and wonder how you lived without it!! Okay… maybe I’m being a touch dramatic today, but it is very very useful! (I love the click & release button feature).

This beautiful, officially licensed The Cruel Prince tote bag is definitely an OwlCrate fan favourite of the month! It is such high quality — with pockets, thick canvas cloth, a removable  crossbody strap and tote handles. I love the deep forest green colour! Designed by @paperbackbones. 

How beautiful is this Fortuna Sworn travel mug (complete with silicone cozy and removable lid)? Designed by Aimee Mac Illustration, this item is also officially licensed and fits into the beautiful green colour scheme perfectly! Absolutely my favourite travel mug they’ve sent out so far! (And I’ve been getting these boxes for 7 years now!!)

Lastly, before we get to the book, lets gush over this new enamel pin collection for 2023. The Treasure Tomes collection is such a cool idea – each pin is actually hinged, so it opens up to reveal more artwork and messages inside. The inaugural pin was inspired by The Cruel Prince (officially licensed) and was designed by @noOnedesigns.

Annnnnddd… the monthly book! Wow. This is such a beautiful OwlCrate exclusive, signed edition of The Buried and the Bound by Rochelle Hossan! Featuring an exclusively redesigned cover created by @rhymes.y and designed by @lichen_and_limestone. Beautiful dust jacket artwork by @niru.sky, foil stamping on the hardback by @paperbackbones, and truly lovely end pages illustrated by @ekbelsher. Author Rochelle Hassan has written an author letter that is bound within the book. A QR code was also included which you can scan for an additional scene!! 

These beautiful January boxes are SOLD OUT! But, you can still sign up for a new subscription (but spots are selling fast!). Use code TALES15 to save on your new subscription!
