For the last few years I have subscribed to the Z-Box, a monthly mystery box that comes with a few geeky items for a price of £17.99 a month. Over the years I have certainly received some very cool items such as a Nintendo NES Christmas T- shirt, gaming mugs, miniature vinyl’s and various other cool things. As time went on the quality steadily went downhill and I found myself selling most, if not all of the items. I could usually make my money back selling the items. More recently however, the money recouped by selling the stuff off reduced to next to nothing. So I decided I was going to cancel the subscription.
I really liked the –not knowing what you are going to get– aspect of the subscription box and having the amazing partner that I do, who loves shopping for gifts and is amazing at it, I gave her the challenge of putting together a box for me. There was a couple of stipulations:
1. The box has to have more than 1 item.
2. The box’s contents can’t exceed £20 in value.
So how did the first box turn out? I was very happy with it.
