Which stationery subscription box should you choose?
Before choosing your box, think about what you're looking for in your box. Do you want solely stationery items such as washi tape, pens and notepads? Or are you looking for a box with extras like pin badges and treats? Many stationery subscription boxes will theme their monthly boxes too so consider if you'd like themed stationery (Christmas, Autumn etc) or if you'd prefer more everyday stationery.
It's also important to note that different subscription boxes have different costs/delivery dates. All stationery boxes (apart from one) featured below have a three-month subscription service which means you'll pay a lump sum at the beginning and receive three boxes over three months. However, lots of brands offer one-off boxes so you can try before you buy and annual subscriptions which often save you money in the long run. Think about which subscription finically suits you and check if you can cancel the box anytime in case your situation changes.
All that's left to do now is shop. Here's some of our favourite stationery subscription boxes, enjoy!
