This is a review for the Hatchling box.

The theme this month is "Survive an All Nighter". The box includes some supplies to keep you going while cramming for exams. 

Joco 12oz Reusable Coffee Cup  ($29.99)
The study night survival plan starts with this reusable glass coffee cup. I am excited for this. I've been eyeing these Joco cups on well.ca for ages. I have an 8oz Keepcup, but it's too small!

Grower's Cup Disposable Coffee Brewer (~$4)
This is the simplest and coolest thing I have seen in a while. The pouch contains coffee grounds and a filter. Pour in hot water and you have two cups of Fair Trade, organic Bolivian coffee. I couldn't find this variety on the Grower's Cup website anymore, but it's at a few UK based discount retailers. I might need to buy a case from Grower's Cup. These would be fantastic for camping.

Serengeti Tea Company Tea Sticks in Pomegranate White Tea and Mint Medley ($0.60)
These are also a great idea. Premium loose leaf tea pre-packaged in a tea strainer. It also doubles as a stir stick.

Crackerjack 3-Pack ($4.99)
Snacks are an important part of study night. I used to love Cracker Jacks as a kid but these were not as good as I remember.

Tutti Gourmet Gluten Free Biscotti (2 x $1.75)
These are delicious considering they are gluten free. The Orange & Chocolate one is my favourite. Tutti Gourmet is based in Quebec.

The November Student Velocity "Hatchling" box included seven items with an approximate retail value around $44. The Hatchling box costs $26 per month with shipping, so it's a good value. I LOVE the Joco mug. That alone makes the box. The  tea and coffee products are very cool and I might look into buying more biscotti! The Student Velocity team did a great job curating products to fit the theme.

For those curious, the larger size Raptor box included everything you see here, plus a couple of highlighters (to help with your studying), a rubber ball (for when you need a break from studying), an extra tea stick, an extra biscotti, and some chocolate. The Raptor box costs $36, including shipping.
