Papergang review: October and November 2019 boxes

Disclosure: I bought these boxes myself but if you use my referral link, I get a free box for every two people who sign up – stationery for everyone!

It’s happened: I’ve fallen back in love with Papergang. I’ve bought the odd box in the past (Gemma Correll has always tempted me to subscribe), but inevitably cancelled my subscriptions when I’ve been disappointed by a box. Now it’s even easier to subscribe and know you’re getting products you’ll love; if a theme is announced which you’re not keen on, you can pause your subscription and hold out for the next one.

When I saw that Papergang was teaming up with Blurt for their October 2019 box (I love their books and Buddy Boxes), I knew that I’d be reactivating my subscription – and I’m so glad I did.

The box was designed by Melanie Johnsson and is possibly the best value box they’ve ever produced. It features a stunning Happiness Planner with matching stickers (which you can buy separately here), six scratch and reveal motivational postcards, four brush pens, and a colouring poster, plus the usual calendar postcard and mini magazine (and embroidered badge for new subscribers).

The Happiness Planner is one of the most beautiful planners I’ve ever owned. It’s undated, which is always helpful, and features words of encouragement throughout. Photos don’t do it justice – the cover is so shiny (check out the short video on my Instagram). Whether you’re a note taker or list maker, you’ll find this so useful.

I was a bit disappointed with the pens as it didn’t take long for them to start fraying when I had a go at lettering but I’m sure Jenson will enjoy using them to help me colour the poster.

The postcards are fun too. I think I’ll save them for the days when I could do with a pick-me-up.

Just when I thought the October 2019 box was the best one, the November 2019 box arrived and made me question everything. Kong-Yew Wong’s illustrations are festive AF and so flippin’ adorable.

The box features an A5 to-do list, six greetings cards, gift wrap, gift tags, a coaster, and washi tape (plus the calendar postcard and mini mag).

Now I just need to figure out whose presents will be beautifully wrapped this year. Although I am kind of tempted to frame the paper…

It’s all about the details – I love the little snowmen and the skiing Father Christmas.

For £14/month, including delivery, these boxes have been great value for money and I’m looking forward to upcoming releases. You can never have too much stationery.

Check out more reviews from my archives: April 2017 box, 2017 Gemma Correll box, 2018 Gemma Correll box (fingers crossed for another one), August 2019 box.
