Thanksgiving Mini Box

Cost: $28.99

“Take some time to truly enjoy Thanksgiving and soak in the holiday season with this mini gift box set from The Literary Book Club. Enjoy a classic short story about Thanksgiving by Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women, along with three wrapped luxury gifts. This story of an 1820’s Thanksgiving is filled with the warmth of character and family life that has made Alcott a favorite for more than 100 years.”

“Title is a slim paperback edition of An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving by Louisa May Alcott. Box has three wrapped gifts to open and a cute sticker!”

“*Limited edition one time boxes are separate from the subscription and must be ordered separately. Subscribers will not automatically receive this box, so snag it now if you want it!”

Let’s take a closer look at everything in the box.

Book: An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving by Louisa May Alcott

“In this story of an 1820s Thanksgiving, a woman must leave her children to care for her ailing mother. She goes away on Thanksgiving Day, and the children decide to prepare their own Thanksgiving feast. Later that day, to the children’s surprise, Mother returns to find a delightful dinner on the table.”


There is a really pretty sticker with a quote from Louisa May Alcott “She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain.”

Lavender Bath Bomb

The first gift is a lavender bath bomb, perfect for a relaxing bath. I love the scent of lavender and think this just smells amazing!

Artisan Handmade Candle

Next is a candle with the scent “Holiday Cheer” that is perfect for the season with notes of mulled cider, oak, and cinnamon bark. Enjoying a scented candle while reading a good book is just the perfect way to spend a cold winters evening at home.

Spiced Apple Pie Cider Caramels

Literary Book Club always includes a little treat to go with the book. This time we have some spiced apple pie caramels that are made with freshly pressed apple cider. These are so good! It was so hard to not just finish the entire bag all at once.

Final Thoughts

This is such a fun little box! All the gifts really went with the holiday/Thanksgiving theme and just put me right into the holiday mood. I absolutely loved everything that was included. The book is a short read of an hour or two. Reading time is hard to come by with an active baby, having a book that I could actually finish is rather nice haha. A mini box like this one is perfect to just try out the subscription before committing to a longer term. It will also make a great little gift!
