the chest of the half blood prince
I am so thankful for the incredible response to my Bimonthly Chests and I really enjoy both making and curating the items in the boxes for you all. However, the sheer volume of the Chests and shop orders, on top of my University work (with med school exams coming up in June), has started to get a bit overwhelming.
The last thing I would want is for standards to slip, waiting times to extend and for my customers to be disappointed. The only option I see here to uphold standards and protect my own mental health is to take a short break while I put more focus on my school work and passing my exams.
This will mean that sales for The Chest of the Half-Blood Prince will open in May 2020, and these will ship in July 2020.
In the meantime, I will dedicate my time to keeping the shop open which has most of the past Chest items listed. There will also be a limited run of Mystery Past Chests which will be released every few weeks while stocks last!
Our Bimonthly Chests are filled with 8+ handcrafted goodies made both in-house and by other talented small business owners. Expect a retail value of over £50.00 and products personalised to your house!
Released every two months, each Chest has a specific theme inspired by the wizarding world.
This Chest will ship ~July 10th 2020
Our current theme: Book Six!
COMING NEXT: THE CHEST OF THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE
All of our items are vegan and cruelty-free. We also aim to use as little plastic as possible in our packaging. Where we do use plastic, it is always recyclable/biodegradable!
Don't want to miss the next box?
Over 8 high-quality items per Chest, the majority of which are handcrafted!
Only 200 Chests are available per theme so we can guarantee quality and timely delivery.
Items made to order and matched to your house by our highly dedicated team of true HP fans!
How does this work?
As we only make a limited number of boxes, we only offer one time purchases of our chests. Our bimonthly chest is usually released at the beginning of the month after shipping and can be purchased on a first come first serve basis.
How often will Chests be released?
A new Chest (with a new theme) will be available every two months. Please check above for the current Cauldron Crate theme.
Will it be only handcrafted items?
The majority of the Chest will contain handcrafted items made by Cauldron Crate. We have also included a few extra goodies from other small business owners.
What is included in the Chest?
Expect a minimum of 8 items in each Chest with a retail value of at least £50. Please see our past box tab for an idea of what will be included. We are committed to providing the best service and if there is anything you feel we can improve on, please don't hesitate to contact us at
When will I receive my chest?
Order by the 10th of the shipping month in order to receive the current Chest. Orders will reopen for the next Chest at the beginning of the following month. Chests will be shipped by the 29th of the shipping month and should be with you within 2 weeks (within 5 days if you are in the UK)!
How much will shipping cost?
We ship worldwide from the UK and so the cost depends on where we are sending our Chests. If you live outside of the UK shipping will be more expensive. We do charge shipping at cost and so provide the cheapest price possible for our customers! Any extra charges that may occur at customs are unfortunately out of our control. If you think the shipping price for your Chest is incorrect please email us at and we will do our best to assist you!
Do you have a returns policy?
If there is something wrong with your order please contact us at with photos of any damaged items and we will see what we can do. If you change your mind we can offer a refund on any unshipped subscription boxes. Unfortunately, if the items have been shipped then we cannot offer a refund.
Are you vegan friendly?
Our crates are vegan-friendly and we aim to use as little plastic in our packaging as possible! If you have any questions please email and we will be happy to assist!
My card has been declined and I don't know why!
Some customers have reported issues with their cards being declined despite having sufficient funds and correct details. If this happens to you, please use PayPal to checkout as it seems some non-UK banks have issues with our Stripe payment processor. If this still doesn't work please email us at
My package has been returned to sender
If your package has been returned to us we will let you know and will aim to ship it back to you the next working day. Unfortunately, we would not be able to cover shipping costs in this instance.
