    Purchased nest.box for my 11 year old ❤️ : “She really liked reading the pamphlets! Her favourite things were the socks, the little zip up bag, lip balm and her wheat bag! She went to bed with the wheat bag! All the samples were great though, she enjoyed being able to see/ feel the other brands/ products that I don’t use…”

    Thank you so so much for the beautiful box sent to my daughter. The information, samples, treats and gifts have made this next step in her life so easy. We enjoyed sitting and going through everything together. It gave the opportunity for discussion and q&a, and even I learnt some stuff lol. I also must recommend the teen breathe book that was included. What an amazing book that is. She’s even taking it to show her friends 🙂

    Omg! Where were these boxes when we were younger? It makes getting your period like Christmas! Thank you, it’s nice to know I can make the experience for my girls empowering rather than shameful

    Super easy to order, delivered so quickly. The leaflets and menstrual calendar were a good amount of information for young teenagers to digest and user friendly language. Lovely box of samples. My daughter was very happy. P.S. She loved the socks, lollies and lip gloss 🙂
