I don’t know about you but I dread going to the mailbox to find yet another bill. Water rates, school fees, the dreaded credit card bill – the list goes on. Now I’m buzzing to my mailbox since coming across a new innovative company called The Makers Mailer. The Makers Mailer is a pen pal who has your back and loves to gift you with really cool things that will make you smile. It kind of feels like it’s Christmas, only once a month not just once a year. Tell me more you say?
Joanne Tighe is the Creative Director behind The Makers Mailer which has been sending out little surprises in the post since 2015. And not just any gifts – they’re beautiful handmade pieces, each unique and created by different independent Australian designers. From just $36 per month you can have a surprise package arrive to your mailbox, and let me tell you, this will have you bounding to the letterbox not moping.
I received my first package last week and was so excited to open it, I’m a very hard person to surprise with any present as I usually spoil it by guessing what it is. However it’s impossible to do so with The Makers Mail, so I actually got to sit back and be surprised for once. Even the box looks intriguing, it’s packaged in such a beautiful way you can’t help but be filled with love as you open it. Joanne wraps your Surprise Treat so beautifully that it’s almost a shame to open it, but that didn’t last too long as I quickly tore open my package to find an Ena & Albert necklace and earrings set. The gorgeous rainbow set had my name written all over it and it was love at first sight. A beautiful, unique piece that will be a ray of sunshine to my winter wardrobe and a huge favourite of Miss Two’s, who is in a fashion trance when I wear it.
A truly lovely surprise and a big thumbs up to Joanne and The Makers Mailer team, I was beyond impressed and am now counting down until next month!
