Buddy Box

Review: BuddyBox from Blurt

The BuddyBox is a subscription box with a difference; instead of being full of nerdy goods, baby goods, or anything like that, it is a box you send to someone who in need of a hug-in-a-box. If you have a friend who needs a bit of a boost, someone struggling with their mental health that could do with a lift, or you just want a way to send a message to say “I care” to someone, then the BuddyBox is for you.… Continue Reading “Review: BuddyBox from Blurt”

These treats mostly consist of: crochet bits, eBooks, and stationery… ok, ok, I… Continue Reading “My first Kawaii Box”

The basic premise is that you fill out a well designed questionnaire to let them know your tastes and your child’s sizing, pay a monthly fee, and in return you get a mystery box each month with a variety of clothes for your child.… Continue Reading “Review: Box Upon a Time”

Review: Nonabox UK (Oct 2013 box)
