Out of all the subscription boxes, I was probably most excited to try Goodie Goodness. Past boxes have been big on stationery, letterpress, artist prints and bags, all of which is right up my street so I had high hopes.
The Goodie Goodness subscription box costs £14.99 +£5 delivery fee per month for the UK. Whenever you order, you will receive the following month’s box. I signed up on the 30th March and my April box arrived on the 11th. OK, enough of the logistics, let’s take a look inside.
The main item was a cloud-shaped chopping board from SNUG Studio in Germany. This is solid beech, and is gorgeous, you can tell it’s of a high quality. However, I’m just not one to get excited about cooking so I can’t say I was that thrilled with this.
The other items were three greeting cards and a postcard from Oktoberdots. The cards are blank for your own message. Again, these aren’t to my personal taste so I was a bit disappointed. I think I could customise the yellow chevron card easily but I’m not sure about the other two. I like cards to reflect a bit of the personality or preferences of the person you are giving them to and I just can’t imagine what I’d use these for.
So yeah, I know that a lot of people will be loving this box, but unfortunately I can’t say I’m one of them. If I was more into kitchen stuff I’m sure I’d be delighted, but my kitchen is not a fun place to be and a cloud-shaped chopping board ain’t gonna change that. This is purely a personal taste thing but I was disappointed with my first Goodie Goodness box. I don’t want to write them off just yet so I will try another month soon but for now I’ll keep searching for my favourite subscription box.
Maybe I can use the board for something else. Like a nail painting board for when I’m sitting on my bed or on the couch. Would that be sacrilege? Any suggestions for alternative uses?
