I was really kindly contacted by the lovely Naira from Mishka Mail* who asked me if I wanted to try out her stationery subscription box.
As you guys know, I love stationery – I have posted about student diaries, an Ohh Deer haul and the Papergang subscription box we get in the UK. So when Naira emailed me, I hopped straight over to her website to check it out.
What Is Mishka Mail?
Mishka Mail is based in Australia and since 2013, Naira has been drawing the adorable little Mishka (meaning bear in Russian which I think is so cute!) on greetings cards, gift tags and more. Mishka Mail launched in 2016 when Naira noticed the rise in popularity of subscription boxes and has been growing ever since. Moxy and Mo have now joined the characters of Mishka Mail to make up a panda, cat and raccoon – the perfect trio!
A little side note but something I really loved – you can order previous boxes online so if you missed out on one or you would rather order it after it’s release and you know what’s inside then it’s perfect for you.
When my subscription box arrived, I first noticed how lovely it was packaged – tied up in a cute bow! Naira also included a little thank you message which meant so much as it was me who was in fact excited to check everything out.
One of my favourite things about subscription boxes is the fact that you don’t know what to expect each month so you feel like you’re taking a little risk each month with what you get. April’s Mishka Mail certainly delivered and I was super impressed with what I was sent.
A Look Inside
The April box is called “European Fling” which I thought was perfect as I am visiting both Prague and Barcelona in the summer! I’ll give you a little run down of what you get with Mishka Mail:
3 greeting cards
2 mini cards
2 gift tags
1 wall print
My absolute favourite thing I received were the mini cards. The little Moxy gracing the cover of the Bonjour card was just adorable and is perfect when you just want to send someone a little note. I have recently starting sending cards and letters more often because I think it such a nice sentiment as you have something to cherish. The excitement of getting a letter is always much better than a text, anyway! I also loved the safe travels one and I can’t wait to send it off to a friend before they go away in the summer.
The greetings cards were also another favourite of mine. I love the vibrancy and colour in the designs Naira does, feels so much different to what we have available in the UK and something you would definitely want to show people because they’re so sweet. I mean, I would be so happy to receive one of these in the post!
I’m excited to send the Barcelona card to my mum as it is somewhere I am visiting in the summer, which is a perfect coincidence! I’m also taking my mum to London for her birthday at the end of May so I’m thinking of sending her the London card too with a little itinerary of what I have planned for us.
I was honestly super impressed with Mishka Mail and it was such a delight to have received it from Naira. I wouldn’t have gone in to such detail and love for this brand if I hadn’t honestly been over the moon with what I was lucky to get.
If you are interested in checking out Mishka Mail, the link to the website is here. The subscription boxes are 26 AUD for Australian residents and 30 AUD for International residents (which is respectively around £14 and £17). Considering how much you get for your money, I am so impressed with this box and I will be ordering another one for myself soon!
