    Purchased 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 🙂

    Thanks so much for getting this box to us so quickly! Some lovely products and a lovely way to continue some ongoing conversations we have been having.

    Totally Recommend!
    Easy to purchase & was delivered very quickly.
    Box had all the information & products to make our conversation go a little easier. The treats were such a delight.
    Thank you Nest for providing this box to help the transition into this next phase special.

    Thanks, order received today and we are very happy with it.
    It would have been almost impossible to put something like this together during Lockdown.
    My daughter is autistic and would rather die than sit down and read, watch or discuss puberty with me.
    Happily she will sit quietly and explore the products, read the leaflets and come to me with any questions.

    The pack arrived on Friday. It is awesome, thanks so much. My daughter and I unpacked it together, and had a really good chat about what it all was.

    Thank you for an awesome service – both your talks and your nest boxes. My daughter got huge value from both – the box especially made getting her period something a bit special.

    I will highly recommend this pack. I was unsure on how to broach this topic with my daughter but this pack was the perfect icebreaker. It made an introduction into her next stage of life fun and exciting and she fully embraced it. Thank you

    This has got to be the best gift pick for young girls.

    Thank you
