I remember reading all the classics in high school and hating them because I was forced to read them on a timeline. Now that I’m an adult and can choose to read what I want when I want, I thought, what better way to discover Classics and enjoy them than with a subscription box.
And so, here we are with Coffee and a Classic.
January 2021 Coffee and a Classic Packaging
I adore the simplistic design of the box. Also, it looks beautiful on my shelf for storage. It has a label holder on the front so you can be extra organized.
What was in the Coffee and a Classic January 2021 box?
First comes the spoiler card. Again, simple design and straight to the point.
The Great Gatsby Socks
You can never go wrong with socks, especially while living in the north. Layer up to keep those toes warm.
These bookish socks are from Out of Print and they feature Gatsby himself.
Pimento Olive Chocolate Almonds “Martini”
When I first saw this, I’m like, “man, that’s a tacky decoration.” but then I realized they were chocolate-covered almonds, and I snacked while I took all these photos. Absolutely delicious!
Daisy Buchanan Art Paper Bookmark
Since signing up for bookish boxes, I’ve accumulated a collection of bookmarks, and I love the print on this one. I adore watercolor and fine liner art, so this is perfect!
Art Deco Bookplates
If you’re like me and have no idea what a Bookplate is, well, it’s a sticker you put on the inside of your book so you can write your identification on it. I love the design on these.
I love mugs! I collect them as I drink coffee daily and tea on occasion. I was excited to see this one in the box as you can never have too many bookish mugs.
I was too distracted by the chocolate almond snacks to snap a photo of the other side, but there’s a quote that says:
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
Midnight Jazz Coffee
I’m having my morning coffee right now, and this Midnight Jazz Coffee from Coffee by Design is delicious. I also love the illustration on the front that says:
I believe in the Green Light
What was the book in Coffee and a Classic January 2021 box?
You’ve probably guessed it by now.

This book is beautiful, and that teal is stunning. The silhouette illustration is perfect, and those end pages! It’s only 144 pages, and I’m excited to reread this one.
Final thoughts on the Coffee and a Classic January 2021 box?
I loved it! The chocolate snack hit the spot. The coffee is delicious. I can’t wait to read the book as I’ve not read it since 2006, I think.
