Trying to find a "unique-gift-a-month" website/club
October 24, 2011 2:02 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a UK site that I saw a while back and daftly appear not to have noted down the name. Basically, it was a gift of the month club: you bought someone a subscription, and each month it sent them something. The gifts were quirky and pretty cool; they tended to be things like one-off runs of prints etc. I can't remember the price; in my mind it was about £20 a month, but could be more than that.

Are you thinking of Quarterly?

It could be The Thing. The last Thing was made by James Franco. Previous Things have been by Miranda July, and Dave Eggers.

No, it's neither of those (although they look cool). I'm 99% certain it was a British site. It was actively curated (i.e. I think there was a bloke who wrote little essays on what he had chosen and why etc). It was very professional and, as far as I can tell, utterly ungooglable.

This is a bit of a left field approach, but how long ago was it? Which browser were you using? Sometimes I have more luck keyword-searching my history than re-googling.

It was about four month back I think, but am pretty sure I only visited it on my phone, so any history/cache/keywords has expired now.

Is it this?

I was curious about this, so I did some googling of my own. It's not notanotherbill is it?

Yes! That's it. Oh, and apparently it is googlable then and I am just a fool. Thanks a lot!
