Behind the Box - Long Weekend

Take a look behind the scenes at our Long Weekend box, created for our monthly subscribers in May...

May, as all of us who live in the UK know, is the month when Spring teases us a little bit and reminds us that Summer is on its way. Yes there are showers, but when the sun comes out it is lovely and warm - and as an extra treat we are given TWO Bank Holiday weekends to enjoy!

So it was a really easy decision to theme our May box 'Long Weekend'. The items we included were designed to make anyone's weekend a little bit more fun - whether you were going away for a few days of relaxation, or staying in and catching up on all those box sets.

For the first time ever we included a solid shampoo in our boxes, as well as a bamboo-handled travel toothbrush. Of course we are aware of reducing plastic and trying to do our bit, but these items were all about convenience too - the shampoo is perfect for popping in to a weekend bag or for taking to the gym!

We also designed an exclusive set of earrings in a pretty pink enamel raindrop style. To be honest we don't often include earrings as we don't of course always know if our subscribers have pierced ears - but these went down so well we will probably include more in future boxes. We discovered a UK manufacturer who could make them in nickel-free hypoallergenic platings - and I think we will be getting in touch with them again soon!

We created an exclusive spaghetti measure too for this box, perfect for creating a cosy weekend night in - as well as a cute planner pad, a retro fridge magnet, a do not disturb sign and a gorgeous bag tassel - phew!

Here are some lovely images we received from our subscribers this month, unboxing their goodies!
