Usually september brings new perspectives and desire of learning something new. It’s true, autumn is the season when you start sharpening your pastels, buying blank diaries and books. That’s why I’m suggesting four gifts to give (or to give to yourself), so that you could discover new projects.
They are seven subscriptions, each of them is brilliant in a different way.
In Icelandic language, Hoppìpolla means jumping in the puddles (hoppi is jumping, polla is pool or puddle). Actually, hoppìpolla is also the wonderful project by Co-Hive and We Make a Pair: it’s a monthly box with different products made by designers, illustrators, creatives. In some way, hoppìpolla is the perfect way to support talented artists and to wide your knowledge of the independent culture.
A monthly box with men’s accessories, from the ties’ set, to the pochette and the watch. Each article is personally selected by a team of designers, aiming to choose a theme for every box and the content, as well. For example you could receive the “Parker Box”, containing a set of accessories for a business man.
The advantage is that, while each products costs about 100 euros, Sprezzabox allows a 70% discount!
London Tea Club
September is also the season of teas, brews and herbals. That’s why London Tea Club handles the monthly delivery of a tea box. Every time you’ll receive a different kind of brew, always composed by seasonal plants, grown with care and attention to the planet. Ethic, respect and nature: these are the characteristics of London Tea Club.
There is an online florist, who makes possibile to flower lovers to receive every week a fresh bouquet. It’s called Colvin, it’s a Spanish start-up, recently arrived in Italy; it is possible to choose between the two collections “Originals” and “Colvin’s drawings”, wharsmore, you can add personal messages to the bouquets!
(Colvin comes from the name of the Afroamerican activist Claudette Colvin, who at the age of fifteen was arrested for rebelling against racial segregation. The creators, then, chose a name reminding of progress and improvement).
