PrezzyBox Store Launch


On 27th February I was invited to the official store opening of the very first ever PrezzyBox store at Roadchef Strensham services in Worcestershire for a VIP tour of the new shop and all of its exclusive products. It was my first ever store opening and so I was really excited to be invited down!

We (I made Jonny drive me down – haha!) went down on the sunny Thursday morning to meet the team and explore the new store. We immediately knew which store we were looking for – I mean, it is only a motorway services which aren’t ever particularly large – because of the absolutely stunning store front. I think every store should be putting this much effort into its aesthetics. The storefront is made up of LED boxes which change colour. For store opening day they were lit up in classic pastel PrezzyBox colours (green, pink, purple) which kept fading in and out of each cube.

We introduced ourselves to the team and sat down to wait for the rest of the invitees (we were some of the first to arrive) with some delicious vegan cupcakes and drinks. We awed at the shop front as we waited to be taken in before a small speech from both the PrezzyBox and Roadchef teams.

Then, we were finally allowed to explore – with permission to “cause havoc”! No havoc was caused, and the store remained pristine. The interior is just as aesthetically pleasing with the pastel colour scheme continuing throughout. The store itself is split into several areas for easy browsing with novelty gifts and the tills at the front, following onto electronics, games and children’s gifts at the back, with beauty and food tucked into the corner.

Some of my favourite items included: Hot Chocolate Bombes, a Narwhal Shower Speaker, Unicorn Poo bath bombs, some Pretty Useful Tools, dinosaur shaped egg cups and a very clever pink bunny shaped night light and alarm clock.

The hot chocolate bombes are not bath bombs as I first thought, but more like mug bombs! You can drop them into your cup of hot water or milk for a fun hot drink. The pretty useful tools include a credit card shaped tool with a nail file, comb, bottle opener, screwdriver and box cutter attachments and a small keyring capsule to store spare bobby pins! The rest of my favourites are pretty self-explanatory so I won’t explain those to you, because you know what alarm clocks and egg cups are!

Jonny found himself a handy tool as well, but this one consisted of multiple allen keys in one handy capsule. He bought that for himself to do allen key type jobs of which I did not enquire about.

After our store exploration, we returned to eat more cake and continue to get to know the amazing PrezzyBox team. We were also given a goody bag of samples to take home to enjoy, including some of those hot chocolate bombes which I am super excited to try out! You can find my mini haul along with my mini vlog of the day over on Instagram. I also took home a whole bottle of elderflower drink, the best refreshment.

If you’re ever on the M5 between Birmingham and Cheltenham and need a pit stop, make sure to make it at Strensham services so you can check out the store and get in a really cool Instagram moment! You can also find PrezzyBox online at prezzybox.com to explore their extensive range of exclusive, fun novelty and personalisable gifts, perfect for birthdays, anniversaries – or even Mother’s Day!! Treat your mums!

Thanks again to the team for inviting me along, I look forward to keeping in touch and working together in the future!
