Flick the Wick is one of my most favorite book merchandise boxes out there. I recently published the September box unboxing of Terrasen Rising and now it’s time to share my unboxing of October’s box <ERROR> which is inspired by the Illuminae Files books by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman.
I am in love with these books and I am in love with Flick the Wick boxes so I was really excited to receive this box. Let me show you guys all of the awesome stuff I received in this box.
I love that FtW always has different box designs with each new theme/month. Since the Illuminae books are all about space adventure, it’s totally fitting to have this gorgeous galaxy design on the box. Love it!
Last month’s spoiler card had some amazing artwork on it and this months spoiler card has a really beautifully designed quote art work on it.
DOUBLE SIDED ART PRINT
There’s a stunning double sided art print inside with this awesome quote on one side. Artwork by @dreamyandco
And then there’s the other side which consists of artwork by @kiranight_art . I think she did an incredible job of portraying these characters. They all look so amazing! Love it a lot and I’ll be showcasing this side of the print on my shelves for now. love love love it!
‘AM I NOT MERCIFUL’ POUCH
I love pouches and feel like I can’t get enough of them haha. I use them to store make-up but also to store book merchandise as pins, bookmarks and such or to just showcase them on my shelves since they always look so pretty. I really love the design of this pouch and the pouch itself is huge so there’s a lot that fits into it so that’s awesome! Artwork was done by @dreamyandco
I love magnetic bookmarks a lot and getting one that’s designed by @dreamyandco makes me so happy. I love that dreamyandco is always so much involved with a lot of the designs in the flick the wick boxes. And I think it’s so awesome Flick the Wick included an item of this character, Ella Malikova, in the box since she’s such a terrific and underrated character I think. So I am really happy with this bookmark!
DOUBLE SIDED KEYCHAIN
Keychains are always great to receive I think. I love switching between keychains and use different ones once in a while so this one will definitely be used in the nearby future. Love the quotes and the designs! Artwork by @dreamyandco
DOUBLE SIDED STURDY BOOKMARK
As I’ve said in the September unboxing article, I always love receiving these specific sturdy bookmarks Flick the Wick always includes in their boxes. I think both sides of the bookmark are awesome and it’s hard choosing which side I’ll be showing on my shelves haha. I’m going to switch it up a lot I think. Designed by @dreamyandco
This awesome pillow cover was designed by the wonderful @inkandwonder.designs and I love it a lot! I don’t know if I’ll be using it on my bed though since I don’t have a matching one for my husband and I like matching covers on our bed haha. But I love the coloring, the artwork of Kady and the quote that’s being used. Maybe I’ll keep it stored for now so I can hang it up on a wall someday like a tapestry of some sorts? I’m definitely going to use it in the future, but for now I’ll keep it safely stored away.
CANDLES – smaller ones
Flick the Wick switched from using the tin candles to these smaller glass jars and I can’t say I am against it haha. I do love the tin candles a lot but it’s nice to receive these glass jars as well for a change! The three candles are ones I am sooo incredibly happy with since I came to love all of these characters so much and just… sigh. We have a Kady & Ezra candle which smells of Ozone, Musk, Mango & Apple & Floral. Then there’s also a smaller candle of Hanna & Nik which smells of Embers, Musk, Maple & Peach. And last but not least, there’s a small candle of Asha & Rhys which smells of Crisp air, Lavender, Vanilla and Musk. As always, the candles smell delicious.
CANDLE – a large one
And last but not least there’s this large candle in a glass jar of AIDAN <error> and I love this one so so much! Aidan is such an amaaaazing ‘character’ and I came to care about this AI so much even though he seems to be the ‘villain’ of the story at one point or another. But damn… just love ‘him’. So glad I got to add this one to the collection as well.
Overall, this is yet again a box I am so incredibly happy with! All of the designs and artwork is stunning and the items are all items I loved to receive and I’m definitely planning on using them all in the future, the usable ones. Thanks to the items in this box I was finally able to create a small Illuminae Files ‘corner’ on my shelves to showcase my books and merchandise and I love it:
November’s Flick the Wick box theme is SHADOWHUNTERS so I already cannot wait to receive it since it’s one of my top 3 favorite fandoms.
Do you love buying book merchandise? What are your favorite items to receive? Love to hear from you!
