My box, very nicely wrapped again, was destroyed this time as well. Since I've seen this from several boxes, I don't think it has anything to do with British Boxes. I guess it's what you deal with when ordering from overseas, or really anywhere. Sadly, though, it did damage the items inside this time.
Several of the items were repeats from my Female Box, including the Fish 'n' Chips snack, cheese pack, tea bags, and tea light candles. The tea and snack make total sense, although the tea lights probably don't belong in a box geared towards men. Yes, it's a bit sexist, but I just can't see too many guys getting excited about tea lights. However, the snack and cheese were quickly devoured by my husband, so no complaints there! There was also a small jar of jam, which will definitely be used.
This time, the tea came with a really cute travel mug, which sadly was completely cracked in transit. I love the pattern - it feels old-fashioned, but I won't be able to use the mug. I could possibly pull the design out and add it to a different tumbler, though. I think this was a nice touch, including the tea within the mug, and it is a big change from the bags just loose like in the Female box.
If the boxes are heading in this direction, I think this will be a great subscription and I'm looking forward to seeing British Boxes succeed.
Update March 6: Now that I've had time to process and given the nature of companies such as French Box, I feel that I cannot list British Boxes on our current list with confidence. This box was not the best quality although it was new but there's been no communication or activity on their social media since sending the first month. I feel disheartened at what appears to be a poorly devised plan at best, and a quick scam to make some holiday cash at worst.
