Pre-COVID-19 ‘The Box’ was one of the many hotspot nightclubs that straddled both sides of the pond with sites in NYC and London. Celebrities like Jude Law and Snoop Dogg were constant regulars alongside a who’s who of ‘cool kids’ enjoying the club’s racy entertainment and late-night after-parties.
Now, both cities are in lockdown; the times of cocktails, dancing and celeb-spotting are on hiatus and we must look to other (perhaps more wholesome) entertainment. With this in mind, we have compiled a list of other Boxes you can enjoy from home. These subscription boxes contain a world of fun and will keep you occupied for hours on end:
Unpack A Box of Fun
Love old school comics, tapes, vinyl, and video games…? Pick one of the four categories and receive a box every month with new items to play, listen and read. The nostalgia will keep you entertained for many hours to come.
Get Your Caffeine Kicks
Love coffee? Us too. There are few things that are more satisfying than going through the ritual of making a morning coffee; the notes of the roast filling the air with a sweet scent and finally bringing the cup to your awaiting lips whilst you start to prepare your day. The wonderful people at Handpicked Coffee understand this and have created an enviable selection of coffees from around the world to send you every month.
The Best Of The Internet In A Box
The box-curators at FabFitFun scour the internet to find the coolest trendy things in beauty, wellness and quirky items you will love. An example? How about the ethical faux-fur blankets, UnHide, backed by non-other then Ellen Degeneres. Wrap yourself in the softest animal-friendly fake fur whilst you try out the latest collagen infused skincare. Nothing beats that.
Grow With Your Bookshelf
We’ve been given the gift of time, why not let the famously knowledgeable team at Daunt Books (the literati’s favourite bookshop in London) fill those extra hours with a selection of great literature? Get a subscription and receive great reads every month.
Indulge Your Inner Cereal Killer
Love having a good-old-fashion cereal bowl? The unofficial post-COVID rules mean you can have one at any time of the day; breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try different cereals from around the world, curated by East London favourite; the Cereal Killer Cafe. This subscription box delivers flavoured milk, cereal toppers and a full box of cereal every month. Dig in here.
After WFH Cocktails
Do your Friday post 6 pm supermarket vodka and soda drink seem a little bleak? Fear not – we there are expert bartenders to the rescue. Relive the glory days of bars and mixology with deliveries from Lollipop (the people that brought you the famous ‘Breaking Bad’ bar, ABQ also in East London) and from The Cocktail Man.
