As wedding season seems to continue all year round, the struggle of trying to find original gifts or presents for couples or indeed the bridal party or family can be a frustrating task, especially when you really want to find something more thoughtful and unique (i.e not a toaster, photo frame or bottle of Champagne).
Luckily the Not-Another-Bill wedding gift subscription have you completely sorted in this department, such a great concept and I was kindly gifted a surprise package myself which I thought I’d share!
Not-Another-Bill are stylish curators of tailored surprise gifts in the post either via a monthly subscription service or as a one off hand-picked luxury hamper. They aim to be the most unique gift service in t he world, whether it’s a gift subscription for the newly-weds to enjoy throughout their first year of blissful matrimony, something special to thank the ushers and bridesmaids or a beautifully curated hamper for the in-laws – with complete flexibility they provide a customised gift service like no other. All your gift giving dilemmas solved, basically and even better is they are offering London Bride readers £10 off a first subscription with special code BRIDE10.
SURPRISE FOR THE NEWLYWEDS
Their ‘surprise’ subscription service makes for the perfect wedding gift for newlyweds as you can choose to surprise them with a present, tailored to match their style preferences which you select, each month for 3 months up to a year. I love the idea that it’s something that continues for a couple of months or even well into their first year of marriage, rather than just a one off, the gift that keeps on giving! It would certainly make a very nice welcome back after the honeymoon when the back to reality blues kick in! They can even tailor the package for a 1st anniversary.
BROWN PAPER PACKAGES
There is something so fun about receiving packages in the post, especially when it’s packaged as beautifully as this. The big brown envelope has all the treats inside, each beautifully wrapped so it’s like a pass the parcel to yourself! The surprise presents are all very carefully selected, and are beautifully crafted and unique items by independent makers and designers that they will be a joy to receive.
I was lucky enough to be sent a surprise package for me and Mr. London Bride, and amazed at how every item were oh-so-perfect for us:
A beautiful green and leather Il Bussetto card holder, with luxuriously monogrammed bespoke initials for the other half, Mr MM. Great for the traveller in London!
A pretty pastel pink notebook with my initials in gold foil, perfect for my client meetings (and aptly almost a ‘London Bride’ pink!). Anything personalised always gets a big thumbs up for me!
One of my favourite items, was this beautifully cheery blue ‘SOL’ print with gold foil sun design by designers Tom Pigeon who’s work I’m already a big fan of (have been eyeing up these prints for a while!).
An ever so pretty and delicate gold plated ‘lovely’ necklace which comes with a little notecard (decisions as to whether to give it as a gift or keep it to myself!). I rarely treat myself to jewellery so it’s very nice to be gifted something!
A great gift idea, and such lovely curated items, I think the prices are quite reasonable for a and the best thing is there are options for every budget. For a 3 month plan the price is £69 to a year’s plan for 12 surprise gifts is £229, or you can do a rolling plan for £24 a month. Not bad, but let’s not tell the recipients that!
If you want to choose a gift subscription (for yourself or someone else!) head to Not-Another-Bill and don’t forget to use our exclusive code: BRIDE10 to receive £10 off a first subscription. Here’s to more joyful snail mail!
