when was the last time you got some personal mail?
I love getting personal mail, but it's seriously dwindling year by year. Birthdays and anniversary is a given, and getting cards at Christmas and New Year's is a real bonus, since no one really sends them out anymore. Apart from a few birthday cards in June, I've only received a postcard from my friend Kits in Japan. Well, actually it was for my daughter, but I can claim it came to me, can't I since she's too small to read!
So, when I read about this website called NotAnotherBill that send you a surprise gift at the start of every month, I thought, wow, this is cool, but also a bit sad, since this is something that we used to do for each other. The fun part is that you get a surprise gift each month, something unique, something quirky, something that you're not even likely to find in a store.
Founded by Art Director and entrepreneur Ned Corbet-Winder, who sources gifts from local markets, vintage fairs and even collaborates with artists to create unique gifts for subscribers, NotAnotherBill costs GBP 15 per month and you can sign up for yourself or to send gifts to someone else.
