Redballoon: Experience Happy!

This is a sponsored post for RedBalloon.

Tell me, how pretty is this box? Wouldn't it be lovely to receive a box like this every month for 3, 6 or 12 months?

Last week, I was given the fantastic opportunity of trialling a RedBalloon subscription. They currently have 59 different subscription offers from which I was able to choose - it was a very difficult choice to make, so many yummy things to try! I finally put my hand up for the Ningana range of fine jams and relishes and soon they were on their way to me via courier. Don't they look lovely?

The Grumpy Old Man and I had a chuckled over the playful names on the label; 'Jam I Am' and 'Wam Bam Man Jam' - which came in the flavour of 'spicy pumpkin', and then got down to the serious business of taste testing. We were very impressed with the quality of the orange marmalade and the strawberry jam - which reminded me of the jam my grandmother used to make! The big winner was the  Man Jam pumpkin relish - we've only had it for four days and the Grumpy Old Man has nearly completely polished it off!

Moreover, I was excited to see that through this subscription, we were supporting a very worthy cause! This was purely coincidence, but how serendipitous that I - a person with a disability - should have chosen a product that supports employment for the disabled! We're hooked!

I am completely happy to highly recommend RedBalloon subscriptions! Delivery was fast and hassle free, the product was beautifully packaged and of very high quality! I think a subscription like this would make a wonderful Christmas gift, birthday present, or even something special for a new mum!

We certainly did Experience Happy!

Oh how super lovely. What a gorgeous looking box, and those jams certainly sound delicious. They sure do look like they would make a perfect gift for the otherwise painful to buy for. Thanks for sharing

I was reading the other day that consumables are a growing trend in gift giving these days, too! Consumables are very great in that you don't have to store the gift, and it adds a little extra bit of luxury and fun to people's lives!

Good Job!
