White Ranger : Guys, guys! Over here! There's a strange box that's just arrived!
Good Spiderman : Wonder what it is? Shall I take a nosey?
Elmo : Yeah! Elmo keep watch incase Her Royal Shoppingness comes back.
Bad Spiderman : Hurry up Spidey, these turrets are hurting my bum!
Good Spiderman opening the box : Sob. Sob. It's something from Matches - not Toys R Us! I was rather hoping for .... BARBIE.
The nice DHL man (previously mentioned) dropped off a large brown box, inside which was another large box. The inner large box is awesome. I have never bought anything from Matches before but if you get boxes like this, I might make this more of a habit ;o) I'm a high street shopper - you get a plastic bag normally and some of the "posher" ones give you a nice paper one so you can feel a little bit more special.
I think ... this beats the Net a Porter black boxes. What do you think? Or are there better boxes out there to be had? Which shops do the best packaging in your opinion and how much does this count as part of the shopping experience? These things matter you know. Or maybe just to me.
