- 2 bibs;
- A wooden keepsake;
- A bar of baby soap;
- And, a new baby card.
My Review of the Mini Me Gift Box Shop
When my Mini Me gift box arrived my very first thought was that the owner of the Mini Me Gift Box Shop was missing a trick. Before I even opened the package I was delighted by the pretty pink box it came in. It’s very sturdy, has a magnetic seal, a ribbon tie, and it looks both practical and pretty. If I bought a similar keepsake box in Paperchase (for example) I would expect to pay £10 or more, so I really was surprised that the box itself wasn’t mentioned on the gift box descriptions.
With such a strong start, I had high hopes for the content of my box and I wasn’t disappointed. Under lots of pink and purple tissue paper was an adorable selection of items which had been arranged and wrapped with obvious care and attention to detail. Any item which might conceivably be damaged in transit was carefully wrapped in an extra layer of tissue paper and tied up with ribbon, making it both pretty and practical. The result was an almost theatrical display of brightly coloured tissue and ribbons which reminded me of the splendour of Victorian department stores.
I spent a remarkable amount of time enjoying the presentation of the gift box before looking a little deeper at the items included. Although everything looked lovely, I do find that sometimes when a lot of effort has been put into the presentation of a box, the contents are actually cheap and cheerful. In these cases the pretty ribbons and wrapping are there to disguise the actual content. I’m pleased to say that this wasn’t the case with Mini Me. All of the products from the cute bibs, through to the swaddle were absolutely wonderful. The fabrics were luxuriously soft, the keepsake and soap looked good, and even the card was a lovely design and quality.
Had I received this gift box for Baby I would have been absolutely over the moon with it and I honestly can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t be.
As a rule when I review a product I always look for areas where it could be improved, no matter how small and it’s a rare day when I honestly cannot think of anything but the quality, attention to detail, and obvious love that went into preparing this product absolutely bowled me over. I can’t even quibble over the price as there are many lovely boxes available for under £35 which is very reasonable value for such a lovely thing.
If anything, my only bug bare is that Mini Me currently only offer boxes for newborns. I can imagine that similar boxes made for older children would be very popular for birthdays and special occasions. I will keep my fingers crossed that this will be an area of future expansion!
