introducing honey tree post and their Stationery Lovers Club November box

Do you ever find yourself spending extortionate amounts of money on little bits of stationery from a variety of different stores? Are you always on a hunt for cute items of stationery on a regular basis? If so, a monthly subscription box may be something that may appeal to you. Subscription beauty boxes are quite a big thing now so there's no reason why the same can't be said about stationery boxes in the future! Enter Honey Tree Post and The Stationery Lovers Club box - a husband and wife duo who have come up with a monthly box that comes through your letterbox full of chic stationery. They very kindly sent me the November box to review and here it is in all its glory...

Opening up the box, you get a lovely first impression - the goodies are wrapped in a thin dotted sheet of tissue paper which gives it a slight luxurious air. It's also lovely to hear the inspiration behind this month's box but also how Honey Tree Post contribute to Post Pals with £1 from each box going the charity - a nice touch.

The first thing included in this month's box are place cards - perfect for that Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner coming up soon. However, due to their simple, yet chic, design, they can be used all-year round.

Some labels were also included and I have to admit that these were my least favourite items in the box. I'm not a huge fan of shiny sticky labels as I personally prefer matte labels.

Included in this box were also three Christmas cards. The card used for them is seriously thick and high quality and the one shown above is by far my favourite one. At the back, it says that Honey Tree Publishing support Anthony Nolan - a very good charity that I know a little about. They campaign about the importance of being on the marrow register (different to being a blood donor!) which may end up saving someone's life in the future.

The penultimate item in my box is a letter set. The red polka dot print on both the paper and envelope are a lovely touch and add a bit of colour and playfulness. I don't write letters as often as I would like but with a set as cute as this and with friends all over the world, I now have no excuse not to! WhatsApp may have to take a back seat for a while...

Finally, there is a piece of card with a sketch of a little black dress. It's a nice touch to finish the box with and I'm already debating with myself about where best to put this print.

The Stationery Lovers Club box retails at £15 per individual monthly box, including shipping, with varying degrees of discounts if you take out 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions. The premise of the box is that it'll include items you can send, use to adorn gifts and frame for your own personal abode so it's ideal for those of you who send a lot of cards and letters or give a lot of gifts. Which pretty much covers most of us at some point or other! These boxes are a nice way to try out different bits of stationery without having to trawl the internet on a regular basis.

Thank you, Lizbeth and Sebastian for sending me this box for review :)

NB: The November box was sent to me for the purpose of a review. I have reviewed it as if I had bought it personally and I receive no commission through any of the links within this post.


  1. i love these, but i'm also the type that would keep it until it turns yellow and still not want to use it. a terrible waste though

    1. Aw, I know what you mean. I've had to force myself to use these as they are just so cute! x

  2. Hi Angela, Thank you so much from all the Bees for your review and lovely images. We are delighted our designs and quality shine through and that the name place cards can be used throughout the year. This is an import aspect of the curation each month that whilst seasonal, it must last... Again thank you from all the team and keep enjoying your love of paper. Kind regards Sebastian

  3. Thanks for supplying the November box for review, Sebastian :) x
