Ok, I'm sorry, I said it! XMAS GIFTS! That's right, halloween has passed and bonfire night is tonight so that means only one thing... it's truly time to gear up into xmas mode. In the lead up to xmas I'll be sharing some bits and bobs that I think would make awesome gifts for your loved ones who have a keen eye for design and homewares. Today, we start with surprise gift subscription service Not Another Bill.

NAB have been around for a short while and are essentially a gift box subscription service with a difference. Every month they send out a specially curated surprise gift from the best independent and unique designers and makers. As the name suggests... it's Not Another Bill! You don't know what you're going to get each month, which is all part of the fun!

Gifts range from jewellery to stationary and home accessories. You fill in your preferences (or the person you are gifting it to) and they curate a selection based on those choices. Prices start from £24 a month or are slightly cheaper if you pay for either 3, 6 or a 12 month subscription in one go. 

I was kindly sent one box to try from NAB, and I was so pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It was packaged beautifully and was just a nice fun thing to open, especially when you don't know what's inside. I got a really cool Tallow candle which is a candle and saucer made entirely from wax. 

I had fun finding a place for it in my flat and it now sits on the mantlepiece in the living room.

I think NAB's a great way to share something fun and unique with someone you love over xmas. This is the kind of gift I'd LOVE!

So what do you think of Not Another Bill?
