YABookers Dream Loot Crate

For those of you that don’t know, Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for gamers and geeks – their boxes contain things like t-shirts, collectables, and themed merchandise. Honestly, they look kind of awesome. (They even do Firefly & Harry Potter ones!) So when we were heard about Loot Crate putting together a fun project for fans to create their very own dream crate, we were all for it. 

Picking a theme was kind of difficult – we love books, that’s for sure. But we couldn’t think of a theme specific enough. So instead we picked something we thought we could make a box with both bookish and geeky stuff. Most of you probably don’t know this, but we love all things sci-fi. We are HUGE sci-fi geeks, so after lots of talking, we decided on a theme – SPACE.

1. Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza

Obviously, it wouldn’t be a YABookers dream crate if we didn’t have a book! Staying within the theme of space, we picked this newly released space opera by Rhoda Belleza. We haven’t read this book yet, but we’ve heard fantastic things; it’s even been likened by some reviewers to Star Wars, so this is definitely a book I would put in my dream crate.

2. Star Wars notebook

This cute little notebook is great for any Star Wars fan. It’s pretty simple and neat. And everyone is always in need of a notebook, right?

3. Illuminae inspired candle

I picked this because I’m always in need of candles, it’s bookish themed and I’m a massive fan of Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (and if you’re a fan of hardcore sci-fi books you should totally pick up this book if you haven’t already), so I thought this would be a perfect addition to the box – & that ‘blood’ spatter really adds to the atmosphere.

4. Firefly print

I know that Loot Crate already has a Firefly box, but I’m such a massive fan of Firefly, and I just really loved this print so had to include it.

5. Stargate Command mug

I’m a HUGE fan of stargate, and this Stargate Command mug is just fantastic. I love a good cup of tea – so this stargate fandom related mug would be perfect for me.

6. Stargate necklace

The Stargate is one of the most recognisable images when it comes to sci-fi, so it’s is hard not to include the stargate necklace in a sci-fi/space dream crate.


What would you include in your Dream Crate? If anyone else wants to have a go at creating their own dream crate, we’d love to see them so post a link to yours in the comments 🙂
