There are a lot of kawaii subscription boxes around these days, which is great if you like receiving surprise post (and who doesn’t?), but how to decide which ones are worth your money? I got my hands on the June box from Super Cute Box so here’s a look inside.
All the goodies are packed in a flat box that will fit through most letterboxes. Everything arrived in good condition and nicely packaged along with a cute postcard.
Here’s what I found inside: Hello Kitty and panda letter sets, Mamegoma stickers, Rilakkuma file box, Hello Kitty mini card, bunny tray, deco tape, two pens, a pink heart necklace and a DIY bracelet kit.
I really loved the file box, which is adorable and really useful. I’m definitely going to use it to store some of the cutest bits from my stationery collection.
I also squeed a lot over this little bunny tray. You could use it as a coaster too, but it’s perfect for loose change and other bits and bobs.
I especially liked that there was a lot of stationery, as it’s useful as well as being cute and it sets the Super Cute Box apart from other boxes. All the character goods appeared to be official licensed versions and I was happy to see Mamegoma in there. Super Cute Box also work with indie makers to include products that are a little bit different. As with most surprise boxes, there are a few items that weren’t to my taste, but the Super Cute Box had a very high hit rate and is worth the price when you fancy a treat.
Super Cute Box costs £18 for a trial box, or from £15 per month for a subscription and shipping is free within the UK. I would definitely recommend it to stationery fans as you get a lot of good quality items, and not much filler. You can check out the contents of past boxes on the Super Cute Box blog, along with a monthly giveaway to win a free box.
