Looking For that perfect gift for someone who has everything? Want to get somebody a Gift card but hate the idea of such an impersonal gift?
Vivabox solves these dilemmas easily.
Whats a Vivabox? you ask.

A vivabox is an exciting new product that combines the freedom of choice with the personal touch of a real gift. This two layered gift can be the answer to all of your gift giving dilemmas. The first layer is a gift inside the box that is intended to familiarize the recipient with the product. The second layer is the gift card that can be redeemed for their gift selection from a menu of choices.

1. You Pick The Theme
Do you have an idea as to what type of gift someone would like? Select one of our themes that you think they would enjoy the most. This is the part that gives it a personal touch.

2. They Try The Samples
They open the box and enjoy the gift inside. Depending on the box this could be a gift to try, taste or use and they all relate to the theme of the box.

3. They Choose The Gift
After enjoying the first gift, the recipient visits this website and enters their card number. They will be taken through the redemption process where they choose their final present. This is where the freedom of choice happens.

I chose the Bar-B-Que Vivabox to give Lee as a gift and he absolutley loved it, in the box is three different spices/rubs (Kansas City Classic Rub, Cajun Street, Chicago Steak & Chop) along with a Gift card for a collection of meats from Omaha Steaks or spices from Urban Accents. With the Gift card he ordered some steaks from Omaha Steaks, the shipping was fast and they came vaccum sealed and frozen packaged in styrofoam with Dry ice and they were still hard as a rock when we got them, of course that didnt last long as he was dying to try one. He couldn’t decide what spice/rub to choose from so he used 2 steaks and cut one in half and tried all Three, he is absolutley in love with them all especially the Kansas City Classic Rub and he has used the Canjun Street on potatoes that he first boiled and then coated with the spice and fried in the frying pan. in his words “Holy Man this is the best steak I have ever tasted! it’s so tender and juicy and full of flavour.” of course this has now escalated into him buying more steak than usual and cooking it at random haha.

There are so many different Vivaboxes all in different prices ranges, I personally also love the idea of the Spa box and it was a tough choice to choose one for Lee rather then me.  The BBQ box cost $90.00 which is more then worth it because the steak alone on the Omaha Steak site is about 50-60 dollars for the options you can choose.  If you have a movie lover in your family there is a movie lover one, or an ipod accesories one, tea, wine, photos and so much more you really need to go and explore the site and check it all out for yourself.

Thank you to Vivabox for this great product to review.
