How many times have you checked your phone in the morning only to have Facebook alert you to a birthday that completely slipped your mind? Happens to me ALL THE TIME.
Honestly, I never used to be a birthday-forgetter. Before I had kids I was infuriatingly organized and prompt. But now I’m not, and no matter how hard I try to get it back I'm beginning to face facts and think that this skill, like bag-free eyes and bikinis, is just gone for good.
This is why Noisemakers Club is such a brilliant idea. Each month, Nina Camacho hand-picks cards, wrapping paper and other beautiful fripperies, packages them up into a letterbox-friendly box and posts them out to subscribers. As you can see, the quality is so high and these glorious designer stationery items are both beautiful and useful. Lifesaving, you could say.
In the box I received (pictured), there are three greetings cards – not overly birthday-ish or gendered, which is handy – plus a sheet of wrapping paper, three kraft paper heart stickers and a luggage label. My favourite is the sweet cat card by Rosehip for its characterful face and pretty pastel colours.
As well as helping me to get organized, I love that this service supports small, independent businesses and designers. Go Nina!
Want to sign up? Or get a one-off sample box? Both cost just £12.50 and you can sign up to the Noisemakers Club birthday stationery subscription box here.
Take a look at my latest vlog for a review of this box plus two others, and don't forget to subscribe to my channel and give me a thumbs up!
Disclosure: Nina asked me to write copy for her website and in return she gave me this box free of charge.
I chose to write about Noisemakers Club as I love the idea and the product and thought you lot would enjoy hearing about it.
