Why we do what we do

Our mission is to share and promote books where women are strong protagonists and stand up for themselves; where they keep going against the odds; where they encourage us, in their own way, to see the value in ourselves and or others; books that have themes that push our boundaries; or authors who are strong women themselves. These books may be inspirational, tragic, funny, sad, or magical and will represent different genres.

And, just when you thought our focus on strong female protagonists and their compelling stories was enough, we send your book in a box that includes items that embrace the characters and stories and include related items that our subscribers will enjoy. Maybe it’s a tea that the main character drinks, or a type of candy they eat. Or a pivotal quote made into a postcard or candle. We work hard to include unique, sometimes artisan-made items that pair perfectly with the character and story theme.

The strong women behind Callisto Crate.

A few testimonials from some of our valued customers!

Mary M.

Both the customer service and the products were beyond my expectations. I’ve just received my box and the products are wonderful. My niece says this is the best gift I’ve ever given her(and I’ve given her some very nice things!)
So to anyone looking for a gift for a reader, I invite you to check out these monthly boxes and I highly recommend you order them (even for yourself).
Truly a gift that keeps on giving.

I love it. A fantastic book and a box of awesome goodies? Win-win! I really enjoy getting a present to myself in the mail each month, and I’ve been so impressed with the fun and functional items that have come along with the books.
