Olive Box: Pretty Boxes of Paper Goodies Monthly!

October 13, 2012

I have to tell you about this amazing new company that Grace Kang started called Olive Box. First of all, Grace is an amazing PERSON. Yeah, her bio is impressive but the kind of stuff that never makes it to a resume is what I really value about Grace… She’s the real deal and has been so super supportive of me and my career that I cannot help but be eternally grateful.

But beyond that, Grace is one heck of a business woman. As a former buyer at Barneys AND Bloomingdale’s alone with being the founder and current lady in charge over at the Pink Olive in NYC, she definitely has a good business head on her shoulders. That is why I believe in her new project, a company called Olive Box and want to share it with you. What’s Olive Box all about? Oh, you’ll want to read on…

Olive Box: Pretty Boxes of Paper Goodies Monthly!

Olive Box is a subscription service meant to spread the love – the love of snail mail and receiving delightful gifts each month in your mailbox. As a member you will receive a box of paper & lifestyle products (including a lovely book from time to time, hint hint) delivered to your front door each month, “From cards to artwork to inspiring books and gifting ideas, you never know what exciting products you will unwrap each month.” Each box has a theme that is a surprise and will include goodies that support that theme.

    Box subscription services seem to be THE thing at the moment. I don’t see a future for all of them, but paper goods and matching lifestyle products = love! Oh and do I see your new book and masking tape there? I really would love to have one of those boxes on my doorstep :)

    It reminds me of the goodie boxes filled with make-up. I would love to subscribe, but it is not available outside the US. Maybe in the near future(?)

    ooohhh….off to check it out:)

    I love these subscription mailers! They are like interactive magazine subscriptions!

    I like Grace’s idea of filling the box with inspiring pieces. So great!

    So sad that the Olive Box can’t be delivered to Germany :( That looks so great and I am loving paper products so much… so I hope that it’ll be possible some day…

    All the best,
    Frau Süd

    Love what I see from Olive Box and how fun it would be to receive a “surprise” every month of paper products!

  • Reply Chrystina October 13, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    This looks incredible. Next time I’m going to buy myself a gift I will absolutely consider this.

  • Reply eccoyle October 13, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    oohh this is so cool! I love all these subscription services and wish that I could subscribe to all of them!

    I remember hearing about a paper goods subscription service that features a different country each month from a friend which, doesn’t that just sound lovely? Traveling the world through stationery?

    ps. I preordered your book and can’t wait for it to arrive!

  • Reply Sandra October 13, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    Brilliant idea! And VERY happy that I can participate living in Canada. So many contests/products ship only within the continental US.

    Can’t wait to receive my first box!

  • Reply April Louise October 13, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    Love the fluorescent pink tags and I so badly want a type writer!

  • Reply Zoe October 13, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Oh I love that idea and would love to suscribe immediately, but sadly they don’t ship to Germany… If you have any say in this, they NEED to ship to Germany! :)
    Now I’ll have to wait for your book to be published and sold here, but a signed copy would have been so great…

    Oh my – how fun and cute is that!!! I love the idea – would it be available here in Europe???

  • Reply Mnêmosunê October 13, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Oh I so sad they don’t ship internationally…
    Wonderful idea by the way, I’m a freak regarding snail mail :)

  • Reply Kirsty October 13, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Ooooh, I’d love to sign up but it isn’t shipped international. I hope they start to ship to Australia soon. :)

    Why, that is reason enough to join! I love subscription services like Olive Box where you receive a package each month; it’s like Christmas all year round!

    Ooh – I LOVE this idea. Out of all the subscription services, this one excites me the most. So pretty and inspiring.

  • Reply Adeline October 14, 2012 at 9:37 am

    Seems like a nice & unique kinda service, The best things is they deliver books as well! I love the stationary & paper boxes they made as shown in the pics. I think in need to try the $25 monthly subscription.

  • Reply Charlotte October 14, 2012 at 10:03 am

    This is such a beautiful idea…so disappointed that I can’t subscribe as I live in the UK :(x

    As a lover of everything paper, the new Olive Box is a true treasure. I’m a member and I get a thrill each time I see the box at my door, open it slowly and it takes me forever to dismantle it and begin using the items. Grace has a terrific eye for what her subscribers would love. Kudos to Grace.

  • Reply RebeccaOlivia October 14, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    All hail snailmail! I am an avid fan of good old paper correspondence and this beautiful box subsciption is right up my street. Do go international, please!

  • Reply Kika October 14, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    Oh my goodness! This is sooo fun. And I am thrilled that we can subscribe here, in Canada (and free shipping with 6 mos subscription. Yeah!). At first I thought of subscribing for a Christmas gift for my middle daughter but then realized I’d be so jealous. So we’ll just have to share it. All the more fun. Oooh, and I hope I get your book within my six mos subscription (it is on my amazon wishlist).

    Wow! That’s a yummy idea!

    It’s beautiful.
    And photos are great!

  • Reply Mirna October 15, 2012 at 10:57 am

    What an amazing project! Sadly, for US and Canada residents only :-(… Hope they’ll expand to Europe soon.

  • Reply jen {paper sushi} October 15, 2012 at 11:51 am

    I’m also very sad that I can’t subscribe in Germany! Maybe one day! :) I may have to purchase two subscriptions for myself and an American friend and have her forward mine each month…

  • Reply Ella October 15, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    How fun…nothing better than gorgeous surprises in the mail! :D
    Thank you for sharing :D

  • Reply Hilde Pedersen October 15, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Lovely, light and inspiring :)

  • Reply Julia October 15, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Oh, I can´t wait till she ships internationally (Brazil)!

  • Reply Heather B October 15, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    What a great idea and at a fantastic price too! I wonder if we can get the rest of the goodies in the Holly Becker box if we’ve already pre-ordered the book? Is that super-cute cover-matching washi tape I see? Oh my!

  • Reply Ilze October 16, 2012 at 1:55 am

    Not shipping to Hong Kong…. grrrr….. would have TOTALLY loved joining in with this. Love Snail Mail, Love Stationery, Love Surprises…oh, sigh ….!!!!
    FIngers crossed for the future !

  • Reply Michaela October 16, 2012 at 3:12 am

    Olive Box subscription has been on my birthday wish list for weeks now and I can’t wait to hopefully receive it! Hand-written notes and stationary products (and cute books like yours!) is my first love. So glad you’re sharing Olive Box today!

  • Reply Sarah October 16, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    I absolutely love the idea of a box gift subscription, both for myself and if your unsure of what present to get someone then give them a subscription. I’m going to sign up… sooo excited about my first box!

    This site is amazing, keep up the great work ladies.

  • Reply Dee October 16, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Looking forward to her shipping internationally! Can’t wait to sign myself up!

    Thanks so much for sharing this Holly! Eek I’m excited! I was just asked what I want for Christmas from my mother in law, so I immediately sent her the link to the site. Now, instead of opening one present on Christmas, I might get one every month of the year. How rad is that? :) XXOO

  • Reply Sarah F October 21, 2012 at 4:33 am

    Love this idea and The Pink Olive. I have to make a trip there soon!
