Box Review: Hideaway Crate – May 2017

Hello, Everyone!

If you are like me, you are a bookish introvert, and I am happy to announce that I have found the perfect box for us!  This is a subscription box called “Hideaway Crate” and it is special made for introverts and it gives them activities to do with themselves during the month.  Every quarter the box is book club themed, and I received their “Spring Afternoon Reading” box!  I hope you enjoy my review!

I received the May box to review, and this month’s theme was “Spring Afternoon Reading”!

I was extremely excited to get this box because I am an introvert, and I am sick of people picking on me for it.  Hideaway Crate celebrates introverts, and we introverts need that confidence boost sometimes!

Hideaway Crate shows up in a cute kraft box with the logo on the front!  I love Hideaway Crate’s logo.  It looks peaceful and ethereal.

Upon opening the box, I saw that the included items were wrapped in this silver polka-dot tissue paper!  I love how cutesy this touch is.  The craftiness makes the box personal.

The insert card displays the theme of the box, as well as a short description of what is included in the box!  This month’s box is meant to help you relax and read a good book.  My favorite solo activity!

Tea is my favorite thing to drink on a rainy spring afternoon with a good book, and Hideaway Crate seems to feel the same way!  Included is this African Autumn tea from Harney & Sons Fine Teas in an adorable tin, and it is just delicious.

I made sun tea with the tea (where you let the tea steep in the sun) and it honestly tastes like drinking the sun!  It is citrusy and very mild.  What a perfect reading treat!

These lemon cookies by J&M were included to go with the tea, and they are perfect because they are tea cookies!  The cookies are light and buttery, and they remind me of something I would eat at an old-fashioned tea party.

Since this month is a book club box, this adorable fabric bookmark was included in the box!  I love how it is handmade.  It adds a nice small business feel to the box, and I will be getting a lot of use out of it!

Hideaway Crate designed this adorable bracelet to go in this month’s box, and they call it the “unsocial butterfly” bracelet.  It is so clever!  It makes me feel proud of being an introvert, and I love how these bracelets are highly adjustable.

The bracelet came in this canvas bag for safe keeping!

Hideaway Crate sends out books in their book club boxes that introverts can relate to, and this month’s pick is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry!  Here is the synopsis:

“Funny, tender, and moving, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry reminds us all exactly why we read and why we love.”*

A. J. Fikry’s life is not at all what he expected it to be. He lives alone, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen. But when a mysterious package appears at the bookstore, its unexpected arrival gives Fikry the chance to make his life over–and see everything anew.   

This book looks absolutely adorable, and I can’t wait to read it!

Final Thought: Hideaway Crate is a great box for introverts.  It gives introverts an activity to do by themselves with pride!  I love that I received the book club box because I am a huge book nerd.  This box made me feel better about myself, and I can’t thank Hideaway Crate enough for that.  The curation of the box was very careful, and I loved how each item went along with the “Spring Afternoon Reading” theme.  I can’t wait to enjoy the cookies and tea while I read during a quiet spring afternoon!

  1. I especially love the bookmark. If I were to learn to make anything crafty (I’m one of the least crafty people EVER), it would be to learn how to sew fabric bookmarks. I would invest in a whole sewing machine just for that, honestly, and probably go broke buying cute fabrics. 😉

    Great review, by the way! It sounds like a great box… Fellow introvert here, so probably one I will look into trying in the future!
