Lucky Dip Club - Lucky Diner Box

It's that time of the month - no, not that; it's Lucky Dip Club time! Woohoo!

I've posted about Lucky Dip Club before and I just had to do a reveal of this month's box, as the theme was as if it had been made just for me - all things vintage diner!

As always, it arrived beautifully packaged, with the contents wrapped in gingham paper, reminiscent of a diner table - perfect! I love how each box comes with a little menu card, telling you what delights are in the box. This month's menu had an awesome retro roller waitress on it.

I was pretty excited after reading the contents. Pizza? Donut? Knickerbocker Glory? Delish! Let's take a closer look shall we?...

Oh my, my!

Every month, one of the items is personalised and this time it was a pizza slice fridge magnet. Look at it! It's perfect! Mine has taken pride of place on my fridge, securely holding my favourite pizza parlour takeout menu, so I can always find it in a pizza emergency (which is a pretty regular occurrence!).

The magnet came packaged in a vintage hot dog wrapper - I just love the attention to detail with Lucky Dip Club.

How cute are these patterned paper straws? They are so pretty, I don't know if I can bring myself to use them!

Each box also contains a DIY item and this month it was a simple paper craft project - a Burger Buddy! He's so happy, with his dapper bow tie!

This next item is so good - the Golden Donut necklace. I never wear gold jewellery and upon seeing 'gold' on the menu card, I was a little disappointed...until I opened it and let out a little squee! It is adorable! I've been wearing it almost non-stop since. Check it out - a dinky donut with icing, sprinkles and even Lucky Dip Club stamped on the back! I really hope I see someone else wearing one when I'm out and about, so I can high-five them.

Finally, there was a cotton tea towel, printed with a huge knickerbocker glory sundae. It is a thing of beauty and I don't think I can bear to use it to dry dishes - instead, I'm going to hang it in a big frame on my kitchen wall.

The motto for this month's box is Happy Days - like the 1970s TV show, which featured Big Al's diner! 

As a little Halloween bonus, the box contained a Lucky Dip Black Cat Club badge. Each month, there is a bonus raffle, where you could win an extra little treat! This month the badge is the raffle 'ticket' - most of them are orange, but a few are green. If you have a green badge, you are a lucky winner! 

I adore the retro cat design - so does Molly, who kept trying to steal it as I was setting up my photograph shots! I think she has her eye on the Golden Donut as well.

I am so happy with this month's box! Leona really outdid herself - she designs, makes, assembles and packages every box single handedly; 700 of them each month. She is a one woman machine! 
The theme for next month is Lucky Circus, which I'm excited about! I have a rolling subscription so that I never miss a box - they sell out so quickly. To find out more, or to sign up to Lucky Dip Club, have a peek at the website here. If you love receiving surprise treats in the mail, you definitely won't regret it.

Until next time!

  1. Lily! What a cute and original subscription box! And hey, I just realized you were in London for a quick sec. I live here now, so let me know if you come again and I'll take you for tea!! Or beer. whatever :-)

    1. Isn't it adorable?!

      It was a very flying visit to London - I was only there for six hours! - but I plan on visiting again soon in the not-too-distant future.

  2. I think this was my favourite box so far. I just absolutely adore the necklace the most. So utterly beautiful! xx

    1. Same! They just keep getting better and better. The golden donut is so perfect! I love thinking about all the subscribers wearing it at the same time :D xx

  3. This is the BEST! I was super envious of your cat lover lucky dip box and this new post has spurred me in to action. I just ordered the magic forest box as I adore all things woodland and decided I couldn't live without the owl brooch and DIY fox sleep mask. I also added myself to the mailing list in the hopes I can get in on the monthly subscription action before Christmas, fingers crossed! Thanks for introducing me to lucky dip, it's the most fun!

    1. Yay! Oh I'm so pleased! It is so fun - I almost forget about it and then it arrives near the end of the month and cheers me up so much! Hope you enjoy it! :D

  4. Oh wow! This gets cooler and cooler every time I hear about it! I love the doughnut necklace.
