Feast your eyes on this parcel of deliciousness…
Beautifully packaged and packed with gorgeous luxury baby goods, it was sent to us to trial from Nonabox: the UK’s first subscription gift box for new parents and mums-to-be. Aren’t we lucky?!
Subscribe to Nonabox and you’ll receive a hand selected array of products from some of the UK’s best brands to meet your individual needs, whether you’re pregnant and thinking about massage oils and newborn essentials or have an on-the-go toddler who needs entertaining!
In our Nonabox, baby Claudia and I received:
– a gorgeous and snuggly Cloud B Sheep Aroma Pillow
– a Bibetta Neoprene bib
– an Ella’s Kitchen pouch
– a MAM toothbrush, suitable for 6 months+
– a GumiGem teething bracelet
– a pack of WaterWipes wipes
– a Béaba feeding spoon
– a Crawlerz babygro, designed with anti-slip grips
My first impressions were that I was really impressed with the presentation of the box, it really did look beautiful and the packaging is gorgeous. I was also really impressed with the quality of the products inside, they all seemed very premium and were all relevant to me, so the personalisation of the box for me as the recipient was spot on.
Having had the products for the last couple of months I can confirm that we really have put the majority of them to the test (the babygro is still a bit big so not tried that yet!). The big winner has been the Cloud B sheep, which has a lavender pouch inside and smells lovely, and Claudia has become very fond of snuggling up to it to sleep. I honestly think she sleeps that much better when she has it, so it has become a bit of a snooze-time fixture.
Another hit has been the GumiGem teething bracelet. Claudia has 3 teeth now, many more en route, so the bracelet has been through a fair bit of chewing! It still looks as good as new, is very easy to clean and super portable, so I’d definitely recommend that as a great teething product.
We’re big Ella’s Kitchen fans in the Richmond household, so while the pouch we received wasn’t new to us, we’re always keen to keep up the stocks of Ella’s at our house. Claudia wolfed down the apple purée enthusiastically.
The Bibetta bib is great, nice and soft and easy to put on, but I would prefer to use a bib with sleeves, so I usually only use this one for the least-messy meals!
We’re also big fans of MAM too, both girls had MAM dummies and I’ve used their bottles and toothbrushes before. I was planning to use the toothbrush we received from our Nonabox to start brushing Claudia’s teeth early on, now she has 3! But, once Allegra spotted it, she claimed it as her own, so Claudia is in need of a new one already! Love the MAM toothbrush, it’s nice a small for little hands, and the handle is very tactile.
I think the Nonabox gift subscription service is a great idea, but if I’m being completely honest, it’s not something I’d sign up to myself. Saying that though, it is a lovely gift idea and if I was gifted it, I would be delighted to receive a box of goodies each month with new products to try out and explore.
You can pay for a one off box for £25, or take out a subscription – there’s 3 months for £70, 6 months for £130, or an annual subscription for £250. On average, the value of products in an individual Nonabox is approximately £70. Boxes are shipped in the second week of each month and if you’re thinking this could make for a great Christmas present for someone, then you’re still in time to take out a subscription starting in December and there’ll be a special festive box for the month too.
Overall verdict: a great way to discover some fab new brands/products and enjoy a parcel of goodies each month. The subscription would be a fantastic gift for an expectant mum or new parent.

We received a sample Nonabox for free for the purposes of this review, but all opinions are honest and my own.
