Unboxing & Review of My Purrfect Gift Box – May ’18…

Yay!!! My favourite time of the month when the mother of all subscription boxes arrives. I honestly have to say, that as a card carrying crazy cat lady, this is my favourite box of all!

As always, the box is both beautifully wrapped and presented. The theme this month is “Mew York, Mew York!”

The first gift that I encounter is a really gorgeous and unusual letter art picture spelling out the word CAT. All three pictures that make up the picture are genuine New York landmarks! It’s already up on my wall.

Next is a really stunning “tea towel” that says “New York Cats” at the top and includes twelve different illustrations of Olga Angelloz’s fashion forward cats. No way am I messing this up as a tea towel. It’s too good! It’s going on my wall next to my cat picture it really is! It’s difficult to take pictures of it since it is so big, but I tried to get one of the cats. All twelve are different.

Then comes a pack of two cards featuring bodega cats. For those of you who do not know, a bodega is a local corner shop. Cats traditionally live there in return for keeping rats at bay.

Finally is perhaps the most awesome gift in the box. The book “Felines of New York” was the inspiration for this box. There are more than 100 pictures of kitties in various poses, often with hilarious comments to accompany them. If you want to get a cat lover a birthday gift, this would be the perfect thing!

As always a fabulous five out of five star box! Thank you so much My Purrfect Gift Box – yet again you have smashed it! I love it all so much!

Unboxing & Review of My Purrfect Gift Box – March ’18…

Oh my gosh, I am so late with this review! Bad blogger, no biscuit!

This was only my second box from these guys and I was so looking forward to it after the fabulously put together box that I received from these guys last time. I love, love, loved it!

As always the outer box was a gorgeous deep purple colour and the tissue paper is a deep purple colour as well which just looks absolutely awesome when you open up the box.

The first item of fabulousness was a head band with a pair of very pretty kitty ears on them that were very sparkly. I knew however that I would not wear them so I sent them to my friend’s little girl and she loved them.

Next came an absolutely stunning scarf in a very satin like material. The scarf was edged the whole way around in navy blue and the main body is a pale pink. The scarf is covered with cats in various different poses. It was simply too big for me to take a picture of all of it, so I went for a close up of one of the cats instead.

Next item out of the box was a gorgeous set of two black bags and a purse. The first bag is a reasonable size and I love it so much! It has gold coloured metal handles in the shape of a cat’s head! How awesome is that? The second bag is considerably smaller and can either be used as a clutch bag or you have the option to attach a handle to use it as a shoulder bag (the handle came inside the bag). The bonus here is that you get a really pretty little handbag charm to clip onto the side. The charm has black tussles and a really pretty little black cat and a heart. It’s adorable! Finally comes the smaller purse. This is roomy enough to take on a night out if you don’t want to carry a bigger bag and will fit lipstick, cash and keys in it.

The final item was in a black jewellery box tied with white ribbon. It is a gorgeous wrap around kitty ring that is designed to sit on the top section of your finger.

I love, love, love this subscription box! A definite five out of five here!

Unboxing and Review of MyPurrfectGiftBox – Feb ’18…

I have to say, as a card carrying, certified crazy cat lady I was seriously anxious to get this box. After my last few attempts with boxes and feeling let down by one or two things (or everything in the last box) then I was really hoping this one would be better. Well, D’OH!!! It’s cats silly woman! I really should have known!

I have not received this gift box for free, it has been paid for by myself.

If you are interested in the details for these incredible boxes, then go to http://www.mypurrfectgiftbox.com

The outer box is a gorgeous deep purple and presented really well. Upon opening the gift box it was beautifully wrapped in deep purple tissue paper, with a white ribbon in a bow, and a tag with my name on. Now that is personalisation that I have not seen in any of the other boxes that I have had.

Upon opening the parcel up, a gorgeous smell wafted up to meet me, but I didn’t quite know where it was coming from. The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous pamphlet telling me about this month’s box. The theme is Hygge Cat and the pamphlet explains all about what that means. I won’t write it all out here so you can enjoy reading it when you get one.

The other parts of the pamphlet tell you what you have in the box, where the items came from and their RRPs, and also, if you choose to, you can pay more and get some treats for your cat included. Now I know my moggy. He is a very fussy eater and will only eat one specific brand of treats, about the charity the box is supporting and on the back it gives us a sneak peak at next month’s theme.

The first thing that I noticed are the incredible snuggly cat socks. They are so soft and lovely, they make your feet feel like you are walking on a cloud. I used to call socks like these “bed socks” when I was a little girl. The socks are white and have little black ears at the top and the face underneath. As you turn the socks over you see some black spots, like cat markings. I’ve got my socks on now. I love, love, LOVE them. Oh, have mentioned how I really like these socks?

The next gift is an amazing rolling pin with a difference. This rolling pin has kitties indented all over it. The idea is that you roll out your pastry with an ordinary rolling pin and then when you have the thickness that you want, gently roll the kitty pin over the pastry and hey presto! You have kitty pastry! It’s just too cute!

The next item is a brilliant little free gift (hey, who doesn’t love free stuff right?) of a cat head biscuit cutter. I love it!

Next comes an adorable, really substantially sized cushion cover. I would measure it for you but my tape measure has gone missing (looks at children) so I’m guessing 16×16 inches which is roughly 40×40 cms (I’m guessing here) and the verse printed on the cushion cover is just one of my favourite cat poems ever. I now need to buy a cushion insert. That cushion is getting pride of place on my bed!

The fabulous smell! I have located the source. A handmade piece of cocoa butter and vanilla soap. It’s in a small canvas drawstring bag with a picture of a kitty on.

Yet more gorgeousness! Out comes an A5 notebook and pen. The notebook says “All you need is love” and of course has a kitty picture on the front.

What makes me happy is that there was no plastic padding inside this box and they used scraps of crinkled paper. All the cardboard inner packaging and also the cardboard of the notebook looked recycled, and the pen with the book has a cardboard barrel! YES mypurtfect cat box! You have done good things there!

As if you could not already tell, then I will just gently remind you all – I LOVE THIS GIFT BOX!!! Every single item was just wonderful and I loved it! I shall definitely be getting this box again!

Be kind to yourselves and each other.x
