Review of Weekend Box Club

Weekend Box Club was created due to the problem of parents not having enough time to find resources for really exciting, high-quality activities to do with their little ones. The aim of Weekend Box Club is to help parents along their incredible journey and the experience of bringing up their children by providing them with the things they would need for a particular activity as soon as the need arises.

Weekend Box Club is a regular service that inspires creativity, exploration, and imagination. It helps parents bond with their children and keep the family close by giving them a chance to participate in the activities together. Each box contains a themed set of activities the kids will surely love as well as all the materials needed to complete them such as fun activity cards, healthy recipes with secret ingredients that kids can easily make, completion stickers and certificates, craft kit with all materials, and things to plant and up-cycle.

Each Weekend box costs £7.50 and is billed individually. There is also an option of adding multiple siblings per Weekend box so they can all share in the weekend’s activities. Additional materials in the same box cost an extra £4 per sibling.

Delivery

Pact Coffee Review

Review of Pact Coffee

Pact Coffee aims to get the UK drinking better coffee by making incredible, freshly roasted coffee accessible to everyone. It delivers freshly roasted coffee to its subscribers all over the UK. Their world-class beans are bought from dedicated farmers, roasted in small batches at Pact Headquarters in Bermondsey to ensure the very optimum quality, and shipped within 7 days from roasting. Pact coffee isn’t ground until the last possible moment and sealed in special valve bags to keep coffee fresher for longer before being sent straight to fellow coffee lovers to enjoy. Coffee is also ground to suit the coffee machine the subscriber uses.

Pact Coffee was launched to make sure that their customers never run out of coffee. But since coffee tastes best when it’s fresh, Pact roasts its coffee in small batches, sends within a week of being roasted, and, if preferred, grinds the same day they’re sent out. This will ensure that the coffee received by its subscribers has the optimal flavour.

To sign up for a subscription, the potential members will be asked about the type of coffee machine they are using, whether they prefer to receive whole or pre-ground beans, the kind of coffee drinker they are, whether a daily drinker or a weekend indulger, whether they take milk and sugar with their coffee, whether they want to receive decaffeinated coffee, and whether they feel adventurous and prefer to receive a different coffee every time or would like to play it safe and stick with their favourite. The site will then suggest a coffee for the subscriber to try, with detailed description and the country and farm from which it originated. The subscriber will also be shown other coffee options if they prefer something other than the one suggested. The chosen coffee will then be sent to the subscriber.

Delivery

Each bag of Pact coffee costs £6.95, and members are charged with the amount either weekly or bi-monthly. Pact Coffee has a flexible subscription plan. Members can cancel any time, change their delivery frequency, skip a bag, order extra bags, and even take a coffee break if they’re going away or want to take a month off the caffeine. Also, members will be sent an email at least 24 hours before sending out their coffee to give them a chance to cancel the delivery. Pact Coffee also offers a 100% refund if a member ever gets a coffee they don’t want or like.

Pact Coffee also offers various Coffee Kits which can be sent out as gifts. These bundles include three bags of fresh Pact coffee, a charming tea towel, a snazzy coffee-lovers mug, a getting-started guide, and either a Hario V60 Drip Filter, an Aeropress, a Grunwerg Cafetiere, or a Bialetti Moka Pot.

By subscribing to My VitiBox Wine Tasting Plan, the subscriber learns how to choose, taste, and enjoy great wine. Within a year, the subscriber will become a true connoisseur. The Cellar Plan is perfect if you want to begin to build a vintage wine cellar by storing wine to lay down for 3 to 10 years month after month. You can also subscribe to both options since they are strongly complementary.

The Wine Tasting Subscription comes in 2 options – the Colours and Flavours Subscription and the Red Passion Subscription. The famous Colours and Flavours subscription comes in all varieties of wine, while the Red Passion subscription will include only great selections of red wine for red wine lovers and amateurs alike.

My VitiBox members can subscribe to either a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month plan. Members can also opt for the non-binding monthly subscription, with automatic withdrawal.

Subscribers also have the privilege of purchasing larger quantities of wine at special prices.

Delivery

VitiBoxes will arrive at the subscriber’s door around the 15th of every month. The bottle of wines will be packaged in a shockproof case to protect the contents inside. The risk that the wine is damaged in transport is minimal.
