We had the pleasure of receiving a bespoke box from The BeauBox, luxury gift boxes for new mums. For those who follow us on Instagram @KensingtonMums we hope you enjoyed watching a short preview on Insta stories while we unwrapped each item we received.
A little about The Beaubox
The BeauBox was founded by Frankie Harrison after becoming a mums herself.
“Becoming a mum felt like joining an elite club; I suddenly found myself part of a group that shared the secrets of mum life and how to survive it! Within this ‘club’ I discovered the ‘mum-bosses’; superwomen nailing motherhood whilst keeping their own identity AND achieving success as business women. The inspiration I felt from becoming a mum to my son Beau, combined with these incredible ladies, led to the beginning of The BeauBox”.
We believe this is a common feeling when becoming mums. We all go through discovering the “mum bosses” and look to find our place in the world maintaining our professional roles but as a mother too. When you can combine the two its fantastic and we support those who try and those who make it.
The box came beautifully presented with a hand written note from Frankie herself which we thought was a very sweet gesture .
One of the things we like the most about this concept is that The BeauBox brings beautiful brands together, creating the most chic gift box for mummies and mums to be. Everything is thought through in every little detail, from the signature packaging, to the products inside and each item is carefully picked to make a mummy feel pampered and pamper her baby in style too.
We couldn’t wait to open and see the products inside.
If you check the beauBox website, (which is very easy to browse through) you will discover a selection of gift boxes ideal for every mum. From the “bathtime one”, to the “vacation one” to “off duty one”… each box is created there is something to capture your attention.
We received the Vacation Box (£40) which is ideal as the summer holidays are fast approaching. The collection included some gorgeous travel essentials. This summer it is all about the palm print so it was nice to see a super soft thin muslin from Mama Rules. We got stylish and practical products that are the travel essentials for any trip (small or big!) Perfect for any mama not willing to compromise on style!
– Tropical Palm Print Muslin Blanket by Mama Rules
Made with 70% viscose from bamboo and 30% cotton; this silky soft and breathable muslin is great for both mum and baby to use. This muslin is extra-large so suitable for a variety of uses, including a light blanket for warmer weather, a breastfeeding cover, pram cover, swaddle and burp cloth. With it’s trend led palm print it’s also perfect for mama to use as a scarf or sarong. Machine Washable.
This muslin is the softest I’ve ever has the pleasure to use. The size is perfect as well, not too small and big enough to wrap up your baby fully if needed or cover yourself. We LOVE the print, perfect for the holidays and and total hit at the beach.
– Kokoso Premium Coconut Oil 84g
100% natural, this multi-purpose moisturiser is the perfect infant skincare product. It’s a multi-tasking wonder oil that can be used as a bottom balm, baby massage, dry skin and a gorgeous after sun for mama and all the family.
I absolutely love the smell of coconut and the silkiness feel it leaves on the skin. Again, I like how the Beaubox products are thought for both mother and baby, being able to share products is great especially when travelling. One thing I would mention though is to make sure never to use coconut oil before heading out during the day as it has no protection and you will burn and can be very dangerous for a baby or infant.
After a shower or babies bath, its just perfect. Going to bed smelling and feeling divine is an absolute treat.
– Bloom & Blossom Rejuvenating Facial Spritz – 40ml
A skin conditioner with collagen boosting ingredients, aloe vera and lime oil which help improve skin tone and reduce wrinkles and dark shadows. Perfect size to keep in your bag, ensuring you stay fresh and cool this summer.
I was recently introduced to skincare Sprays and I absolutely love them. Quick and easy to apply of courser and refreshing which again, the perfect product to take on holiday and always keep in your handbag. This one specifically feels really fresh and leaves and great feel on the skin.
– Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish 50ml
Get summer ready skin with this energising and skin firming body polish using 99% natural ingredients. Using a body polish is a great way to ensure a long lasting tan!
– Bloom and Blossom Gentle Baby Wash 50ml
Made using 99% natural ingredients, including cucumber extracts, this hair and body wash is perfect for your newborns sensitive skin. And it’s smaller travel size makes it the ideal holiday take-away.
– Wonder & Rah Kissing Bunnies postcard
Postcard size print from the amazing Wonder & Rah, use this postcard to write a special note to your giftee!
We also like the sound of the “The Cute One” which retails at £75. This is the ideal box for a for a baby shower gift.
The box includes a selection of products for newborns; a Beau Bunny hooded towel made from 100% supersoft cotton, Camera Teether by Fox’s felts, 100% soft cotton monochrome Sleep Thief bib and Bloom and Blossom Gentle Baby Wash 50ml.
Enough about the baby, the box spoils mummy with hight quality products for her too. This box has a SO Soy Caramel, Patchouli & Honey luxury scented candle, Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream 50ml, Wonder & Rah Kissing Bunnies postcard.
We think its a wonderful idea to combine mummy and newborns gifts in one box. Lets admit it, when a new baby is born we can’t resist showering them with the cutest outfits, little stuffed bunnies and teddies but truth is, Mummy needs to be looked after, spoiled and pampered like never before too.
So, next time you are looking for the perfect gift box for an expecting mum or friend, make sure to check out the wide collection The BeauBox offers!
