Since Fairyloot had delayed shipping on their boxes for the past few months, I wanted to wait a couple weeks from when I received mine to do an unboxing. But now that it’s here, I’m so excited to show off the May 2020 Fairyloot box!
***I am not affiliated with Fairyloot and purchased this box for my own personal use. The opinions expressed in this post are mine, and mine alone.
Origin: United Kingdom
Price: $33.90 (USD) + $7.99 (US Shipping)
Month: May, 2020
Theme: Desert Dreams
This months theme was Desert Dreams and as described from their Instagram post:
“This month, we’re getting swept away in lands filled with fairy tales, magic and djinn! Put the kettle on and brew yourself a sweet mint tea to prepare for a dreamy adventure, from palaces to sand dunes to magic oasis’! We’ve never done a theme quite like this in the past, and we are so excited for the goodies and the book in this box.”
I was so excited to receive this box because I knew exactly what the book was!
Without further ado, the Desert Dreams box from Fairyloot!
For this months box we received
- A copy of Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust with an exclusive cover, sprayed edges, artwork on the reverse of the dust jacked, and it’s signed!
- A bookish tin inspired by We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal (my boyfriend already stole it for his tea)
- A bookish wooden spoon
- A tea towel inspired by City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
- Desert bath salts by Little Heart Gifts
- Tribal desert candle inspired by An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
- Sunglass pouch inspired by The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury and designed by @kitstercronk
- And our two tarot cards, the Three and Four of Cups inspired by Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas and designed by @gabriella. bujdoso
Spoiler Card below:
Honestly, I really like this box! My boyfriend and I have already used some of these items, like the tin and the bath salts, for ourselves. I’m not sure what I would use the tea towel for, other than decoration, so that’s kind of a wasted item for me – BUT, I am super happy about the sunglass pouch!
I think the wooden spoon is cute, but it’s so cute that I don’t even want to use it. So it’s sitting in my kitchen as a decoration. The candle smells amazing, but a bit strong, so that might just serve as a decoration too. They’re all just so cute and perfect! I don’t want to even use them lol
As for the book, I knew what it was going to be since I had already read it, but I still love the edition regardless! I think the pink looks so cute and the artwork under the dust jacket is AMAZING. Plus, sprayed edges are just so gorgeous. I’m geeking out! Feel free to check out my spoiler free review of Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust if you haven’t had a chance yet.
July’s theme is Resilient Royals!
From the Fairyloot website:
“Prepare your crown, and don’t forget to sharpen your sword − you might need it! This month is all about royals that always hold their ground and are willing to do whatever it takes to protect their kingdom and the ones that they love.
You can expect items inspired by Crescent City, The Lunar Chronicles, Ash Princess, The Queen’s Rising, Woven in Moonlight and The Bear and the Nightingale. We are thrilled to announce that this box will include a hand poured candle by @inthewickoftime, a beautiful cushion cover plus many other goodies that we have never featured in a previous box!
Our featured book of the month is an epic story of a kingdom ravaged by war, and a princess that may be the key to saving it. Something about this book gave us classic fantasy vibes − you can expect magic, resilient royals and romance! This FairyLoot edition will have an EXCLUSIVE COVER, SPRAYED EDGES and will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.”
I unfortunately have to skip this box because, well, money, but I know EXACTLY what the book is and I’m so excited! Part of me is really upset I have to miss out on this box, but I also can’t afford to drop $150+ on book boxes this month, much less the $100 I budgeted for July.
Regardless, I’m still excited to see everyone’s beautiful pictures and hope everyone enjoys their box!
