These days it seems like the only post we ever get is a bill. Think about it; when was the last time you received a handwritten letter? Or even a postcard. And when was the last time you sent one? Or were you too busy Instagramming your holiday and manically sharing on Facebook? Welcome to the antidote to boring (not to mention unwelcome) post; Not Another Bill.

Not Another Bill

Sign up, and the subscription service will deliver one surprise gift each month – either to you, or to a chosen recipient. Founder Ned Corbett-Winder says “We offer a ray of hope to the door mat once more. As well as wanting to make our subscribers smile, we aim to introduce them to great artists, designers and brands.” You can even include a personalized message, if you’re purchasing a gift for someone else.penhaligons

Not Another Bill’s gifts are a charming and eclectic selection of curios and trinkets from designers and brands such as Tatty Devine, Penhaligon’s, BeckSöndergaard and Studio Fludd, with items including hand-crafted bird boxes, leather coin purses, pocket sundials and printed tote bags and scarves. Gifts are presented in a letterbox-sized package, so there’s no need to worry about signing for the parcel – just expect a surprise awaiting you on the doormat.

“Each month we play with a really wide array of presents that can span art, design, fashion,  jewellery, homewares,  and anything in between. All of the gifts share a theme in that they are well made and have a story behind them. It’s about the heritage and the ethos as well as making an impact – and adding a smile!” It definitely beats endless pizza menus and bank statements…nabOne, three or six-monthly subscriptions are available, priced from £18.
