Gift Wink: our favourite new discovery!

Why we love Gift Wink

We love a good birthday party (or really any occasion that brings cake, cheese and pineapple hedgehogs, and the opportunity to make edible jewellery out of Hula Hoops), but there comes a time each year when it feels like we're spending every waking moment buying, wrapping and delivering gifts to the children in our lives. It doesn’t take long before ideas for fun, educational presents to mark the occasion start to run dry.

It's partly how Weekend Box came about. Andy scoured the shops and the Web in search of something new and exciting, but also educational and engaging, to give his niece and nephew for their birthday. Since then, it's been our mission to inspire mums, dads, and little ones across the country to play and learn together.

It's also why we were so excited when we discovered that the mums over at Gift Wink have been working hard at taking the fuss out of running the birthday party circuit. Not only have the Gift Wink mums hand-picked gorgeous gifts and sorted them by age, their birthday alert service has already saved us a few panicked sprints to Toys 'R' Us. Ingenious, convenient inspiring - everything we love at Weekend Box!

Better still, it's earning us some serious street cred with the kids in our lives by providing us with a whole heap of suggestions for original gifts from new brands, as well as the ones we know and love. They've even been nice enough (excuse our blushes) to recommend Weekend Boxes for kids in the 3-8 age range.

Sound good to you? We thought so. Head over to to have a look around and get started.
