Felt like home to my Portuguese bf

The Holiday in a Box Co. on Aug 2020

Absolutely amazing experience. Everything was so thoroughly thought through - there were two recipes (both deliciously tasty!), a virtual walking tour of both Porto and Lisboa, themed music, a pub quiz, some Portuguese phrases and even a soap and a miniature bottle of Port. My partner is from Portugal and he kept saying how fantastic and authentic everything was. It was great to be able to share all the details of his country with him whilst we can't leave the UK. The playlist in particular was a really inspired idea - it's something we hadn't thought to share before, and brought up a lot of fond memories for him.

The attention to detail is incredible. When I first opened the box and showed him the printed recipe cards and so on that were decorated with the Portuguese blue and white tile patterns, he took one look and said it felt like home.

We kept a weekend free for our "holiday" and I added in some extra activities, like a Portuguese movie we'd been wanting to see, and a Portuguese-tile-themed board game (Azul, if you're interested), but there was so much to do and experience in the box that we actually ran over and didn't finish all the activities!

Really enjoyable and a unique experience. Thoroughly recommended!

One of the best

Lemonade Box - Self-Care Subscription Box on Jul 2020

I got a one-off Lemonade Box as a way to make my time of the month feel better. It's fairly inexpensive for a beauty box, so I thought it would be a little pick me up, but the products were absolutely fantastic. Often with subscriptions boxes - even really nice ones - there's a bunch of items that just aren't right for me personally, but I think I used everything except a very nice hand gel that I wanted to give to my mum (and I would have been quite happy to keep that one too!). Fantastic curation! And such good quality items as well, I really can't believe how much you get for the price. I've since ordered another box and it was just as good so I'm going to start getting them monthly!

On top of that, I recently decided to switch to the curly girl method and to swap to natural skincare as well. I had to throw out a lot of products, but I was happily surprised to find that all my past lemonade box gifts were all already natural as can be (no parabens, silicones, sulphates, etc) so I can keep using them knowing they are great for my skin and hair.

I've tried quite a few different subscription boxes over the years and this is absolutely one of the best. Highly recommend!
