I am super excited about today’s post because, last week, I received the most gorgeous blogger mail ever from Under The Rowan Trees and now I can finally share it with you.
I’ve made no secret of the fact I am, like most bloggers, a fiend for stationery. Notebooks, pens, stickers, the lot. So when I say this is just about the dreamiest review I could be offered, I’m sure you’ll have no trouble believing it.
Under The Rowan Trees is the wonderful creation of Danielle, who launched her business back in 2014. She originally juggled this alongside a teaching career, before eventually leaving teaching to focus on it full time.
There are a variety of treats available on the site, including stationery boxes. There is a subscription service available for these, or you can purchase the boxes individually. Each one has a different theme, and mine was Woodland. If you’d like to see previous themes, take a look here.
I received a message to say the box had been sent, and it landed on the doormat the very next day! As I was keen to see it, I loved the fact I didn’t have to wait long. I know, having a little patience wouldn’t go amiss, but it’s stationery! One of my greatest loves.
My first impression when opening the box was complete and utter delight. Staring back at me was the cutest deer bookmark I’ve ever laid eyes on. Not to mention some other equally sweet items! Immediately, I knew this was going to be good.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure where to start. Everything looked amazing. In my excitement, I contemplated dumping the contents out so I could see it all that much quicker. However, I decided that might not be the best idea. So, I started carefully picking things out, one by one.
As I began unboxing the goodies, I only fell more in love.
Cue the “this is too cute words” squeals. (They’re a real thing, and a regular occurrence in my life.)
By now, I think you’ve grasped the fact I’m a complete sucker for anything cute and just look at those adorable woodland animals stickers. I genuinely want to stick them everywhere because they make me so happy.
The hedgehog has to be my favourite, although the squirrel, the fox and… who am I kidding? They’re all so precious!
Lacking in any artistic talent, I’m always searching for stickers to liven up my bullet journal. This box is going to keep me well stocked through the winter months!
My absolute favourite thing about autumn is the colours of the leaves. Opening the contents of this little box made me giddy. What I thought was tape actually turned out to be some bright and beautiful stickers. YAY!
Speaking of tape, there was some of that included, too. My autumn-loving soul felt right at home.
There were also some charming decorative sheets, too. I’m probably going to attempt to get creative with these. My current thinking is cutting them up and securing them in my bullet journal using the tape (or glue) – what do you think?
I realise I have completely gushed over this box, but it’s very hard for me to contain my excitement. Everything feels like it was hand selected for me personally, like a carefully curated gift from a friend.
Best of all…
This is only a small selection of my favourite bits. I actually received a whole lot more:
My absolute favourite thing about this box is it’s all things you wouldn’t find on the high-street. Don’t get me wrong, you can get some fantastic stuff in the shops, but the uniqueness of these products makes the unboxing process twice as exciting.
I really can’t thank Danielle enough for being kind enough to send me this because it had me smiling from ear to ear. Having never tried a subscription box like this before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Safe to say, Under The Rowan Trees is a business which clearly makes every effort to make its customers happy. That, for me, is a business worth backing.
I urge you to go and have a nosy on the site. I’m confident you’ll want to buy one of everything. I know I did!
Fancy one of your own?
…And why wouldn’t you?…
Well, the boxes individually are between £15 and £20. Given how many fabulous things you get it, I think that’s more than reasonable! You can also choose from various subscription options to get a little bit of happiness through your letterbox every month. I’d like to say it will satisfy all your stationery needs but we all know that limit doesn’t exist.
With Christmas coming up, it’s worth keeping these in mind for gifts, too! I know my sister would have been absolutely over the moon with this box in particular.

Now, I’m off to flutter my eyelids and ask really nicely if he fancies getting me the advent box for December!
