Project B’s Maternity Hamper is a brilliant idea! Pregnancy can seem like the longest nine months of your life; having a box land on your doormat once a month, full of nice little treats is a great distraction from what feels like eons of waiting. The boxes are beautifully presented and comprise goodies to eat and drink as well as skin, beauty and baby products to try out - the wine, chocolate, tea and lip gloss samples are particularly lovely. Perhaps the included cleaning products could be replaced with something more luxurious or decadent, something less housewife-y.
The information cards relating to each stage of pregnancy are a clever addition to the box, as are the sample description leaflets. Some full-sized products would be a nice addition to an already fabulous product, which comes highly recommended and works well as a gift option for mums-to-be, who might feel guilty spending money on treating themselves.
A suggestion to the folks at Project B is to allow people to continue to subscribe to boxes post-birth (past the ‘new arrival’ box), focusing these boxes on baby development and adjusting to being a new mum with a combination of baby products and new mum treats. Those first few post baby months can be difficult and isolating; a Project B box would be the perfect pick-me-up!
