What is Shetland In A Box?
Good question! It's a monthly themed subscription box from the Shetland Islands, home to Shetland ponies, Fair Isle, a slightly grumpy TV detective, the UK's most northerly everything, wildlife, birdwatching, fresh air, cliffs, small communities and lots of friendly people! Each month, we send you a box of goodies from Shetland to wherever you are in the world. UK postage is included in the box price, international postage is added at the checkout.
How does Shetland In A Box work?
You can sign up for a minimum period of 3 or 6 months. A 3-month subscription means you get 3 boxes, and a 6-month subscription means you get 6 boxes. At the end of your 3 or 6-month subscription, you can choose to continue your subscription on a month-to-month basis or to cancel. Because we offer your first box for half-price on a subscription, we do set a three month minimum sign up period.
So what's inside the boxes?
Each month, we pick a Shetland-related theme and send you a range of goodies sharing the story of that theme. In each box we shine the spotlight on a range of products sourced from local makers, creators and crafters, all based in Shetland. The contents of each box are a surprise, but will usually include 4 or 5 items that are:
- Something for the home: think handmade in Shetland or Shetland-designed ceramics, wood crafts, tableware, knitted goods ornaments, etc.
- Something for the nose: think candles, soaps, handwash, creams, etc.
- Something for the tastebuds: think Shetland-made biscuits, sweets, drinks, preserves, etc (we're not licensed to sell alcohol - yet!).
- Something for the eyes: think pictures, artwork, photo prints, cards, stationery, notebooks, etc.
- Something to read: Think Shetland-themed books, maps, printed info.
- We also include a newsletter in every box that tells the story of each box theme.
And on occasion, we'll have something completely different to share with you! But rest assured we're committed to sharing the very highest quality of Shetland products with you. We're also picking goodies to appeal to all gender identities. At the moment there will be no alcohol included in the boxes.
What if I just want one box?
Yes, absolutely - just pick a one-off box from our website and we'll get that ready to send for you. We post out one-off boxes once a week.
