    Good luck to everyone x

  • I would give it to my four best girlfriends <3 It would have something to suit each of their unique taste & personalities.

  • I’d give one to my mum. She is so giving of her own time and creativity she deserves a treat now and again (even though she would never expect it). Plus she loves everything creative and handmade so i’m sure she would delight in receiving an Umba Box!

    I’m happy to have found Umba!

  • I would share it with my sister! She lives on a military base in Germany and I’d ship her the things she likes out of it. πŸ™‚

  • I would love to give this to my sister! She would love it as much as I would!!!

  • I would definitely give one to my friend Mary, who loves to support handmade whenever she can. And, because she is a craftsperson herself, she appreciates the value of a quality handmade gift! My friend Michelle could be the recipient of another one (or at least part of another one… she’s a bit trickier to shop for).

  • I don’t usually enter giveaways, but this one really struck me because it looks like the exact type of gift my mother would LOVE. She’s been a huge inspiration to me as she takes care of my niece and nephew (who were basically abandoned at a young age) and every time I buy her a gift, it never feels good enough. She’s done so much, despite not having a lot of money or a big house, and I wish I could give her the world to show her how appreciated she is. And this is just gorgeous.

  • I subscribed. I had never heard of umba box.
