With the Gilmore Girls long awaited revival behind us, diehard fans like me need something to fill the void now that the anticipation has subsided. When Lit Cube’s monthly subscription box caught my eye on Facebook, I knew it was something I needed to take advantage of.
My first month was December’s box, which came slightly late due to shipping issues at no fault of the company, and it was like receiving a nice big cup of Luke’s coffee. Warm, sweet and the best Stars Hollow could offer.
First pro: It comes in its own neat little box. I love that I can keep the box itself as and use it to store trinkets.
Second Pro: Quality of the items and the shape they arrived in. Nothing was damaged or broken in transit and all of the items are pretty nice quality. The scarf has survived a washing already with no fraying or pilling.
- Air Freshener
- Luke’s Take Out Menu (with information about the items listed above)
Third Pro: Selection of items. It’s a nice array of items to choose from, a little something for everyone! I especially love the necklace!
Since this wouldn’t be a true Gilmore Girls post without a pro/con list, there are a few cons.
- In this box, the OOO-BER air freshener not only seemed cheaper than the price they listed it at, but also lost its scent after one day in the car.
- Price. This box retails at $34.90 per month. While I LOVE Gilmore Girls and all of its quirky inside jokes, that’s a little steep for me to swing every month. I know it includes some great items and shipping, but I may have to pick and choose the months I can afford these gifts for myself.
I honestly think the PROs heavily outweigh the CONs in this situation. Maybe I’m biased because of my love for all things Gilmore, but I will happily shell out the dough for this box for as long as my little wallet can hold out.
