First FanMail Unboxing!

Jan FanMail 12

Since last year I’ve seen a huge increase in subscription boxes for just about everything. From books, to food, to cosmetics, you’re sure to find a curated box to suit your taste. With so many options out there I wasn’t sure which to choose from. A lot were too expensive or featured some items in the box that didn’t really appeal to my tastes.

I finally settled on Fanmail which is a subscription box made by lady geeks for lady geeks. It’s $21.99 per box plus shipping costs. Subscribers can sign up on a month to month plan, 3 month plan, or 6 month plan. I was intrigued by their monthly themes and that they featured items that were harder to find online or in stores.

The initial reveal!

The theme for January’s box was Valentine’s & Galentine’s Day (it’s a reference to an awesome show called Parks and Recreation). Galentine’s Day is a holiday on celebrated on February 13th that honors friendships between women.

Each box comes with a nifty card that shows you what you’re getting, but also gives you recommendations of new books, movies, TV shows released for the month!

The whole shebang!

I was very happy with my first ever subscription box. I liked the variety of items featured and that majority of the products in this month’s box catered to me! I’m a huge fan of Outlander and Orphan Black, so I was really happy to get items themed by those very shows.

Each box is worth a value of $50 and for what the subscription costs I was satisfied by the amount of things I received. Most of the other boxes that cater to the same audience (that I’ve seen) seem a bit costly, so I like that it is affordable and items featured are made by independent female artists/businesses.

I’m really glad that I chose FanMail and I look forward to subscribing to future boxes from them. 🙂 For more info about FanMail visit: https://myfanmail.com/

  1. I’m so jealous of everyone who are subscribed to those lovely boxes! But unfortunately, the shipping prices are too high. Living in a country in Europe, international shippings are just ridiculously high. So no boxes for me. But I still enjoy watching videos, blog posts or just Instagram pictures of them.
