Summer is finally over. And as the weather turns chilly, isn’t it nice staying at home more? And while we’ve been keeping cosy inside, I thought I would share some fab things that can be delivered right to your door.
Spicers of Hythe Hampers – Last year I reviewed one of their hampers. And I was thrilled to receive another hamper a couple of months ago (top photo). Their hampers are wonderful. While I delighted in the chocolate and wine, my children enjoyed playing in the large box the hamper arrived in (they honestly didn’t noticed that the dining table was covered in treats – all they saw was a big cardboard box, haha). Isn’t there something special about receiving a box of goodies to brighten up your day/week/month??!! I might have to send one of these to a special someone for Christmas. But who deserves such a treat? Hmmm.
Earlybird Taste Box – this is such a cool concept. A weekly snack box that includes tea, music and artwork. As a tea-lover, I love trying new teas, and I especially enjoyed the Darjeeling Earl Grey. Also, I have been trying to be healthy, so having a pre-portioned snack at the ready. And it was handy knowing how many calories, carbs and sugar were in each snack. We had our neighbours over this weekend and I put some dried fruit and nuts in little bowls and they made fab snacks. Who knew little children would love salt and pepper cashews?! Anyway, the first box is only £1, so it can’t hurt to try it out.
Brainboost Box – these are monthly boxes targeted towards children aged 2-12. The boxes are broken down into three groups – Dubz received the ‘pre-school’ and Moozles received ‘early school’. The boxes are addressed to the child, so you can imagine the excitement of receiving this parcel. Each box has one book, five games and a project. This is more than just a craft box. The items in each box focus on improving the core skills of ‘creativity, communication, emotional intelligence, physical and intellectual ability. We have done most of the games but are saving a couple for half-term. Boxes cost £20 for one month, but you save money by buying the boxes by three, six or twelve month subscriptions.
We were sent the above items for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
