The Crafty Mail is one of our personal favorites when it comes to subscription boxes. Each month you get a themed assortment of items from different small businesses and vendors. Boxes are $24.95 (but if you know you want a couple later in the year, you can order pre-sale boxes for $14.95)

Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside this month’s Crafty Mail.
This month in lieu of the standard box we received a bag.
Everything that we received in our “All that Glitters” themed May subscription box.
This is definitely a shiny bunch!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert that details everything that we received in this box.
We received two items from What the Foil and we loved both. This bookmark has a cool geometric design in this gorgeous metallic magenta! What a great way to mark your page!
This is so cool! Have you ever seen something and immediately thought of someone? Just know it’s made for them…? Our oldest daughter needs to have this. Gonna’ frame it and put it in her room!
Ahhh! Our favorite item in The Crafty Mail this month! This Amber Rose Perfume oil smells AMAZING. There’s a very heady base note of sandalwood? That we love!
The Rose essence is an amazing top note as well and we love that there is glitter infused into the oil!
We love looking around Kiper’s Tea Shop… there are so many amazing tea blends and we see not only does she have a subscription box but she also has an Audrey Hepburn (sigh) themed collection of teas!
Studio SL2 is a frequent contributor to The Crafty Mail so it’s no surprise that they are back and with a new spin on one of their traditional inclusions. This driftwood is a lot like their other wood slice decorative pieces except that it is covered in, you guessed it… glitter! So fun and so pretty and as you can see also has the word “hope” etched into it
L’Aura Botanicals included a 25% off subscriber only coupon. If you’ve read any of our other The Crafty Mail reviews you know then, that we are pretty fond of her bath products!
RAM Art Studios who has some of THE most gorgeous ceramic work contributed this “fun” little magnet to the box this month. Decked out in glitter and about the size of a button, it’s a great addition to your refrigerator!
We aren’t exactly sure if these are repurposed or not but it appears to be a galactic picture!
Cards by Bunny Whiskers creates cards and wall art in fun and decorative designs. For the “All that Glitters” box they put in these cute snowflake button earrings. We can think of anything that shimmers more!
Our second offering from BayouVue these adorable bobby pins add a dash of color. We love the ultra durable white pins as well! BayouVue does a number of different jewelry, trinkets and hair accessories and you may remember them from the Peter Cottontail box – they had cute little pastel egg studs!
Heart of Joy Creations makes some of the cutest little planner clips you ever did see! This month we got a really shiny chevron pattern in Robin’s Egg Blue! We love it!
Mark your page, month, or event with this little guy! The choice is yours
Sally Daisy almost always includes a sampling of her really cute planner stickers in each Crafty Mail Box. This month we received this muted brown lattice pattern which is elegant and pretty. We have to say though, we like her Fox wine glass! And it only serves as a reminder of our 2 months and counting until our breastfeeding days are gone FOREVER (yes, we are that excited!)
We can’t even take all this cute this month… this is really the glitter to end all glitter. And oh the colors!
First we’ve got the two sparkly planner clips which are super cute and in case you haven’t seen The Crafty Mail does some amazing felt planner clips as well and even offers grab bags!
And then there are these gorgeous mason jar gift tags in every color you can imagine! Seriously there were 8 of these included and we loved each and every one of them!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Crafty Mail is so much fun and because of the many different vendors the selection is always fresh and new. Even so we still have the familiarity of certain vendors and we come to feel as though they’re friends! Quality is awesome, best of the small businesses in here! Presentation was super cute this month and everything arrived exactly as it should. Curation was PERFECT! So much glitter, so much sparkle and so much shine! Loved this month!
As far as box economy The Crafty Mail Subscription Box costs $24.95 monthly and while we can’t find most of the prices of the items included we know it’s due to the exclusive nature of each. Most are made specifically for this box! We think this subscription is an awesome deal!
