You know how it goes; the letterbox clatters and you raise your eyes to the ceiling and think – what bad news have we got today? Thanks to emails, whatsapps and other forms of digital media, the most that comes through the door these days is bills. Good old fashioned monotonous white envelopes. However, if you want to give your doormat a bit of a break and get something fabulous delivered for a change, let us introduce you to Not Another Bill.
Subscription boxes are not a new concept. You’ve probably heard of the big hitters like Graze, Glossybox and Able & Cole – but the good people at Not Another Bill do it a little differently. You literally receive a gift, tailored for you, through the door each month. Talk about delivering some good news for a change!
And what with Christmas just around the corner, it’s the perfect pressie for someone special.
The self professed Experts in Gifting, NAB offer tailor-made gift solutions for yourself and others. You can buy their fabulous products online as one-offs from brands like Robert Mackie, Jonathan Adler and Harpers Bazaar – but the real joy lies in their subscription packages. Choose from monthly, three months, six month or a year subscription starting from £24. You can either pick the gifts you’d like to receive or take a short quiz, and the NAB team will put a package together for you, so each month will be a wee surprise.
One’s unable to resist receiving goodies in the post, we thought we’d give it a bash and opted for a cheeky three month subscription to really try it out. We had a trip to Barcelona planned, so we thought choose some monogrammed passport holders and a jazzy umbrella (unpredictable Autumnal weather was a factor here).
These came one month after each other, as expected and it did give us a little boost before we jetted off – making us even more excited about our trip.
Let’s talk about the passport holder first. Crafted from soft nappa leather, the passport case provides a stylish and sensible home for your most treasured travel essential. With compartments and stitched pockets, to hold cards and currency, its slim design will slip into any carry-on, handbag or suitcase with ease.
Next up and even more apt for this time of year, we requested the Camouflage Umbrella. From country escapes to the city streets this outdoor accessory is a timeless classic to see you through many a rainy day. Made from waterproof polyester with a plastic handle and contrasting neon elastic strap, the umbrella is stored in a matching camo sleeve. We suggest you find some puddles and play in the rain.
Lastly, we knew we’d have some holiday blues after coming back from Barcelona, so we decided to have something fun waiting on us and NAB didn’t disappoint. We received these fabulous Flamingo Salt & Pepper shakers for a perfect addition to any dinner table!
So, what would you pick from Not Another Bill? We miss getting our gifts through the door already and we must admit it does make an amazing present if you gift it to someone!
