There seems to be a real revival in the love of ‘snail mail’ lately which I think is just the best thing ever. I have to say that despite so much of my life being spent online, nothing can beat that personal touch of handwriting a letter or card to a friend or loved one. And my love of snail mail goes hand in hand with my near obsession with all things stationery of course! So when the lovely people over at HoneyTreePost got in touch asking if I would like to receive their subscription boxes to review, I was as giddy as a kipper!
HoneyTreePost is a new subscription service that delivers a curated selection of beautifully crafted stationery to your door (or desk!) every month with an array of different items within that can be penned, framed or shared. They are thoughtfully packaged to be able to fit through your letterbox so you will never miss your delivery which I think is an especially nice touch.
I received both the Stationery Lovers Club and Young Honey Tree boxes and I have to say that I was seriously impressed with the contents of both of them. In May, the Stationery Lovers Club was curated around the theme of British birds and included gift tags, postcards, envelopes, note paper, bird stickers, two greetings cards and this particularly gorgeous swallow print with one of my favourite Shakespeare quotes. I am definitely going to frame this and find a place for it on my gallery wall I love it.
The Young Honey Tree box is designed for children aged 6 – 12 years but to be fair, I think I loved the contents just as much as my children did! It followed a tea party theme and included recipe cards, Alice in Wonderland style notelets, time for tea stickers, postcards, greetings card and gift tags. The quality of all the items in both boxes really was exceptional. Such beautiful items and I love how useful they will all be but also just how thoughtfully put together each of the themes were.
I honestly can’t recommend HoneyTreePost enough. Monthly subscription boxes are becoming more and more popular these days and it’s not hard to see why. I think they make perfect gifts or even better, are a wonderful way to treat yourself each month. There couldn’t be a more perfect subscription for us snail mail fans or indeed stationery addicts out there, it is just so beautifully done.
Flexible membership starts from just £10.50 a month, with £1 from each subscription going directly to Post Pals Extra Smiles Campaigns and for that you will receive at least 7 stationery items with a retail value of no less than £30. You can treat yourself to a subscription or even send one as a gift. Plus there has never been a better time to sign up as right now, there is an amazing offer for you to receive a free new member welcome post box worth £12. You can read more about it here but the welcome box will be sent in advance of your monthly post box so you can start enjoying HoneyTree straight away.
Disclaimer: For the purpose of this review I was very kindly provided with samples of both the Stationery Lovers Club and Young Honey Tree subscription boxes from HoneyTreePost but I promise that I would only ever promote a product or service that I truly love (and I truly love HoneyTreePost!)
