The Ooh Box

On Mondays my kid has show and tell at school (you know when a kid takes something to school and shows the class and talks about it)... Well here is an adult version.


I received this box via courier last week and was curious to see the contents inside...

the ooh box, box, packaging

bottles of wine, goodies,


Inside neatly packaged and nicely separated were 4 bottles of wine, olive oil, olives, energy drinks and some snacks (salticrax, biscuits, toffees).

HOW IT WORKS
The Ooh Box (your personal tasting journey) is a nifty way of getting 4 different wines to taste and some other goodies each month delivered to your door via courier - 4 surprise wines each month,  kinda of like a luxury lucky packet.

COST
I am told box subscription costs R395 per month and the contents of this months (July) box is worth R660.

NICE TOUCH
I liked that each wine had a label attached profiling the wines taste and price = you knew the value of the bottle - also you didn't feel like it was maybe a cheap bottle of wine thrown in. This also helped so you knew what to expect to pay if you wanted to buy it at the store.

IDEAS
Would make a nice gift for anybody who loves wines - a nice surprise for them each month.

FINAL THOUGHTS
My husband was way to happy about this box :)  He is already into the second bottle of wine... I am starting to realize this box would be more for him than me as I am more of a wine sipper than a wine drinker.
I still enjoyed unpacking it - it really is like a lucky packet for adults.
