Unicorn Crate Unboxing

Hi Bookish Fans!

Here is another unboxing for the month! This is Unicorn Crate and this month’s theme was:
Northern Myths

Made by Half Oak Candles & inspired by Eowyn of LOTR (be still, my beating heart). As far as smell goes, it is not a top 10 scent, though I don’t despise it. I’ll be curious to see what it smells like once lit.

Made by Cedar Chest Press. This was inspired by Magnus Chase (a series I’ve been starting to collect but, like most books, haven’t quite read yet). I haven’t opened it yet, but last time I got a lip balm in a book box I used it until IT WAS ALL GONE – this NEVER happens. Much excite.

This was made by the book curator’s (she is so, so kind by the way) mom. What a completely unique and truly specialized gift that her mom helped contribute to her box. I thought it was super cute and sweet. Her mom’s pet portrait site here which I checked out and she does beautiful art.

This is a really heavy keychain and I probably won’t use it for my keys as I’ve been trying out a more minimalist approach with what I carry when I go out. However, I still truly like this and will probably use it as a decoration piece for my bookshelves or another place.

Goes well with the theme of this month.

Made by Wudgla Forest. It’s a beautiful print with what looks like runes on it which is super cool.

20180425_1811565558304781810411657.jpg–> Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman <–
The curator, Naomi, wanted to surprise everyone this month with an additional book and I was legitimately so stoked to see this! I had looked it over once or twice online so it was a nice surprise to receive as a bonus!

This month’s book of the month. Like my Litjoy Crate’s box, I’ve never heard of this one, but I’m down to try it all. The cover is crazy beautiful.

That was it for this box. I loved the somewhat darker yet mythical feature of this box and was once again happy to receive a book I haven’t heard of so I can branch out and try more things.


  • I know this book box isn’t as popular, but did anyone else get this box?
  • What did you think?
  • What was your favorite thing from the box?
  • Have you read either of these books or interested in reading them?

  1. Looks like an awesome box. Do you pay for all of these boxes or do they send them for a review? I can only afford Owlcrate, but if money wasn’t an issue, I’d totally get them all!!!

  2. I buy 3 of them and the other I get sent. I shouldn’t get so many but, then I try and justify it to myself since I don’t buy makeup, clothes, or anything else really. Hahaha.
