March Owlcrate Unboxing – Across the Galaxy

This was my first Owlcrate and I think it might be my favourite subscription box so far. It ships from the US so it costs $29.99 plus $19.99 shipping but, at £35, it’s only a few pounds dearer than Fairyloot. There are also discount vouchers available from their reps.



This is your last chance to avoid spoilers!

Owlcrate Scarf

First up was this absolutely stunning galaxy print infinity scarf made by Owlcrate. I don’t wear a lot of scarves but this one is just so beautiful that I can see myself wearing it often.

Owlcrate Candle

Next up is an exclusive candle from Wick & Fable inspired by The Illuminae Files. There were two different scents available and I got Hannah Donnelly which has a delicious fruity scent. I still need to read this series but I’ve had it on my wishlist for months so maybe now’s the time.

Owlcrate March

I love Guardians of the Galaxy so was excited to see which mystery pint-size hero was in my packet. Can you believe how lucky I was to get Groot?! He’s so adorable.

Owlcrate March

Lexy Olivia bookmarks are some of my favourites but they’re usually too expensive to ship to the UK so you can imagine how excited I was by this exclusive Star Wars inspired bookmark.

Owlcrate March

Next up is this beautiful (and exclusive) ceramic mug inspired by the Lunar Chronicles and designed by Sasha Natasha. I love the colour, quote, and size of it!

Owlcrate March

Even the promotional card for Nerdy Post was stunning. Red Rising is a new favourite series of mine so this quote card is absolutely perfect.

Owlcrate March

The book choice for this month is Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston and I’ve heard it’s a retelling of Anastasia set in space which sounds amazing. It’s also an Owlcrate exclusive with different coloured lettering and purple sprayed edges. It’s even signed by the author.


I love sprayed edges and I think this might be one of the prettiest books I’ve ever seen. It also came with an exclusive character poster and a letter from the author.

Owlcrate April

As you can probably tell, I loved every single item in this box. It was incredible value for money, even shipped to the UK, and I’ve already subscribed to the April box with its theme of Shadows and Secrets. Owlcrate is definitely the best subscription box I’ve received so far and one I’m keen to continue subscribing to.

    I’ve tried so many book boxes, but OwlCrate is my favourite. 😊 The items are really good quality and I adore their exclusive editions! I’m glad you took a chance on it! March’s Box was particularly good – I love the infinity scarf.

      I’m glad you think Owlcrate is the best as that’s the one I’m trying for April! I love the exclusive editions too. Especially how they’re directly signed rather than with bookplates.

    Sometimes they’re still bookplates, March was an exception. 😊 I know what April’s book is – I really enjoyed it, I hope you can get the box!

      I think I know what the book is too and I’ve got an ARC to read asap. I’ve managed to get a box and really looking forward to it!
