I still maintain that one of the best gifts to give and to receive is a magazine subscription. Each month you receive something that you really like and each month you are reminded of the awesome person who gifted you the subscription. Now there is something even better for mums (who don’t actually have time to read a magazine)- “Box Upon A Time” which is a subscription to designer kids clothes.
Box Upon A Time is a subscription service of a monthly or quarterly box of handpicked clothes for your child. Think of it as a personal shopping experience for your child delivered straight to your door. Each box contains premium children’s clothing brands at a significant discount.
Box Upon A Time is a great gift for a mum-to-be, your godchild or any child for that matter. There are three types of boxes to choose from as either a monthly or quarterly subscription or as a one-off gift.
Simply go online to Box Upon A Time to subscribe. You will need to complete a short form with the sex and size of the child and you also get to specify the types of clothing you prefer. You can choose specific styles, colours, prints and even preferred items of clothing such as sleepwear.
I found signing up was a piece of cake and it was actually a lot of fun stating my preferences. The best bit is when the postman delivers a delightfully illustrated box with a surprise clothing bundle within. I had to hold myself back whilst calmly photographing the sealed box before ripping it open to see the contents within.
I subscribed to the Silver Box (£29) and received the following:
Petit Pim Cardigan (RRP £12)
A kimono style cardigan mad from Peruvian Pima cotton which is harvested by hand in northern Peru (wowsers!).
I Talk Too Much Cardigan and Trousers (RRP £80)
Trendy, light-weight and super soft outfit which is perfect for the upcoming winter months.
Now let’s do the maths… outfits from two premium kids clothing brands with a total value of £92 yet this Once Upon A Time box cost £29. Now that’s a bargain!
