This week I was given the opportunity to review a box from Babsycola Bundles. Each monthly box contains a number of handmade items for mothers and babies, from a range of independent brands. Our box was supplied free-of-charge but the usual monthly cost is £30, with discounts available for multiple purchases.
Amie, the owner of Babsycola Bundles, asked some questions about the twins’ age and genders, and put together a unique and tailored box. I was very excited to receive it on Monday and it arrived while a friend was here with her daughters, who helped us to open and test the items!
Firstly: the packaging. The bundle arrived wrapped nicely in yellow tissue paper, with a branded sticker. It was packaged in a box with more branded stickers, so we knew what it would be and we were excited to open it!
Here’s what was in our box: lip balm (for me), a Liberty print bib, a soft toy, a taggie blanket and a teether – all handmade. There was also a note with details of each item and who makes it, with links to their shops.
Each item is really well-made and looks very professional and we all have our favourites. Mine is the mojito-flavoured lipbalm; Lucas’s is the teether; Jake loves the taggie blanket and Aurora likes the soft toy. Lucas and his friend had great fun tickling each other with the rabbit ‘ears’ of the teether!
I was really impressed with the bundle and I think it would make a great one-off gift for a special friend or family member expecting a baby. The items were very different to usual baby gifts and it was great fun opening them up and looking at them all. It is also a great way to discover new designer-makers, and I’ll certainly be looking at the other items these designers have to offer!
Disclaimer: we were sent this bundle free-of-charge for review purposes. However, my review is objective and entirely genuine.
