As you’ll have noticed from my Snail Mail Trade blog post, I’m a massive fan of getting fun surprises sent through the mail. I’ve had my eye on Lucky Dip Club since the subscription service launched earlier in the year, but it wasn’t till I saw that Leona Thrift-ola was creating a 1950s diner box that I new I had to get involved. As you can imagine, for me this is a dream come true!
Every month Leona announces what the next theme will be and opens the subscription up for a limited time for people to sign up for that months box. You have the option to order boxes individually (like I did) or sign up for a few months for a reduced cost. The boxes are always snapped up and sold out super quickly, so you have to be fast off the mark to get involved if you’re wanting in. That kind of excitement only makes the whole thing much more fun if you ask me. The boxes are really exclusive, meaning once their sold out, their sold out!
At the end of the next month you’ll get the best piece of mail dropped through your door… and you will have no idea what’s in store for you! Everything is kept so top secret so it remains the biggest surprise ever (hence the delay on this post – I didn’t want to run anyone’s big moment!)
The boxes are small enough to fit through your letter box so no need to worry about not being in to sign for it. It’s really well packaged and presented (key for obsessive people like me) and it is busting full of amazing treats! Every box contains a personalised gift with your name on it, a craft project, a piece of jewellery and a few other happy goodies, all created just for each month. Having one piece tailored specifically to you makes this gift box really special; I’ve seen a lot of subscription boxes, but never one created with such care and dedication to their fans. It’s like getting post from your bestie!
I am so in love with the 50’s box I don’t know where to start with telling you so happy I am with it! I’m a huge fan of junk food, so my Vicky Pizza Party magnet, ice cream sundae tea towel and retro paper straws are right at home in my kitchen. The craft project was a cute paper hamburger pal, who is going to be pride of place in my studio when I get set up and, the pièce de résistance; a golden donut necklace! Be still my heart! This little bad boy has been getting a lot of compliments, and it’s not hard to see why. Having received such a trendy collection this month, I can’t wait to see whats in store for the future. The only down side? They don’t weekly!
It’s fair to say that it’s official: I am totally hooked and head over heels. If you’re looking for a smile sent through the mail I recommend you sign up and give Luck Dip Club a shot, even if you just start out with a taster like me. If you’ve got awesome friends that you’re looking to treat for their birthday or Christmas, this little subscription service is the gift that just keeps on giving. I hoping Santa reads this blog post and signs me up for a year!
Have you ever had a Lucky Dip Club box? Or have you discovered another amazingly cool subscription service that’s available to the UK? If so I’d love to hear about it!
