Death to Flowers – Stationery Gift box

I’m always impressed when someone comes up with a new idea or a quirky take on something, especially as I’m not very good at that kind of thing. But it’s exactly what Susi over at Death to Flowers has done with her range of lovingly curated gift boxes. Susi contacted me and told me all about her luxury gift box and asked if I, as an out and proud stationery geek, would be interested. It has dog paperclips, so yep I was interested! Death to flowersDeath to flowers stationery boxDog Paperclips

See, dog paperclips! What’s not to love?! The good thing about this box is that it has some lovely stationery, but it also has a supercute necklace in the shape of an origami crane, some delicious chocolate that I’ve earmarked to go with a Christmas present and some kissing notes, that help keep your messages to loved one secret! You can personalise the card and choose one that’s suitable for the recipient. I think it’s a lovely idea and a great alternative to flowers. This is just one of a few different boxes that Susi does, so it’s well worth taking a look at her website to see what’s available. I love the box it comes in too and am planning on using that as my treat box and stash all my vegan goodies inside!

Disclaimer: I did receive a discount on the box and it’s goodies. However, all opinions and reviews are my honest view. Promise.

#PaperHaul – A subscription box for Paper Lovers

I don’t know about you, but the only post I seem to get is junk mail, bills or for someone else. (Poppy gets more happy post than I do!) For this reason, I’m a huge fan of subscription boxes. Previously, I’ve tried Not Another Bill, Crafty Fox Box, Graze and a coffee one, though I can’t remember which one. So when I heard about #PaperHaul, I was really intrigued and I signed up.

PaperHaul Travel themed paperhaul

In the box: 2 postcards, 2 sheets of printed paper, 2 greeting cards, 3 gift tags, a sheet of stickers and a roll of washi tape.

The cards are really unusual and are high quality. They’re perfect for sending a little inspiration to your best friends throughout January! You can never have too much washi tape in my opinion, and I love the car themed tape. It’ll be perfect for adding to envelopes, postcards from holidays later in the year and wrapping birthday presents. (I’m haunted by my poor effort this Christmas and need to step it up this year!)

If one of your resolutions is to write more and send your friends and family some happy post, then you’ll need #PaperHaul in your life. It costs just £10 a month (plus P&P), it’s delivered right to your door and for every #PaperHaul box sold, 10p is donated to the UK charity, PostPals. You can also give the gift of #PaperHaul to a paper addict in your life as they’re also available for 3 and 6 month gift subscriptions – perfect if you’ve got a January birthday present to buy!

I plan on trying a few others this year. What are your favourite subscription boxes?

Disclosure: I was given a discount code for this box, but all opinions are my own.

Tuesday Treat

A bit late in the day today, but here’s my Tuesday Treat for this week and it’s another fabulous online shop that also has a real B&M shop in Camden Passage. Such a fab area!

I can’t remember how I came across Smug, but I know it was through Twitter (another reason I love it so!) Smug sells all my favourite things, from Pug cards to badger cushions, to guinea pig tea towels and wooden owls.
