Here's the Box Breakdown
first look in the hideaway crate
Our first glimpse inside the Hideaway Crate Subscription Box

what's in the hideaway crate
Everything that we received in our Hideaway Crate. What a fun mix - the theme is "Spring Afternoon Reading" and it's everything you need for a relaxing cozy time on a rainy spring day!


So what is all this stuff?



Our box insert details each of the items included in this box


"Unsocial Butterfly" Expandable Charm Bracelet
This pretty charm bracelet has a spring like mechanism that makes it expandable which is really nice. 

But what makes it so perfect for this box is the "Unsocial Butterfly" charms which are kind of a hoot!

Here we are wearing it!


harney & sons tea
We love Harney & Sons Tea so we were excited to see that this African Autumn Tea had been included in this box!

Not only do we love the tins and the sachets that come in it but this tea is scrummy! A bright blend of Red Bush, Oranges and Cranberries that has the perfect amount of tart! A good bit of zing you look for in your afternoon tea!


J&M Lemon Cookies

A traditional Southern cookie, these are sweet and tart and covered with powdered sugar. So delicious it was hard to stop ourselves!

Dunk them in your tea to really set the mood!


Fabric Bookmark
This pretty peach toned chevron bookmark is thick and durable (which means our kids can't rip it apart). We look forward to putting this between many pages!


The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
the storied life of a.j. fikry
A bestseller, this novel follows A.J. Fikry whose wife has passed and whose bookstore is failing and when it seems all is lost his prized book is stolen. Just when it appears the darkest for A.J. a package appears and A.J. Fikry starts  seeing the world differently and so does the world start seeing him.

We have to admit we are excited about reading a novel with a male protagonist - it isn't often that we do it and this one looks like it will be a great, easy read!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Hideaway Crate is a fun way to spend some solo "decompress" time. If you are like us and are an introverted extrovert you'll appreciate this after long social events and occasions where you have to interact.. we always feel like for each minute we spend socially we need just as long in solitude to process! The presentation is great - everything arrives perfectly. The quality is awesome - we love Harney & Sons and those cookies are THE BOMB! Curation is really cute! We enjoyed this selection and can't wait to see what Hideaway Crate comes up with in the future!
