    An Interview with Our COO - James Barber

    Hi James! Firstly can you tell us what you do at BoroughBox?
    I’m Chief Operating Officer here, my role is really about making sure that BoroughBox operates smoothly and efficiently, and as a team we’re doing the right things to help the company to grow and service our customers.

    It’s a really varied role and I get involved in all aspects of the business, from making sure that our gifts are well packed, speaking with new producers joining our marketplace or fulfilment services, to working with our corporate partners to create the best gifts for them and then even fixing the office toilet when it breaks (I never thought I’d be able to add plumbing as a skill on my CV!).

    What were you doing before you joined BoroughBox and what attracted you to the company?
    I’ve worked for a few different companies, large and small - always focussed on e-commerce and online selling. 

    I’ve always been interested

  9. Everything You Need To Know About Champagne

    Everything You Need To Know About Champagne

    Champagne is infamous for its status, taste and fizzy indulgence. We’ve compiled everything you need to know about the decadent drink here so you can show off your know-how this Christmas.

    First, some quick tips:

    - If you want to look fancy, hold the bottle from the base, with your thumb secure in the space at the bottom (that’s why it’s there)!

    - When pouring, be patient and pour a little in each glass before topping up fully! No one wants a sticky glass… or to waste delicious champagne!

    With that out of the way… you may be wondering what actually IS champagne?

    1. Champagne is a wine

    It may seem obvious, but though often in its own section at the supermarket, champagne is still technically a wine! The difference is in the fizz. But how is the fizz conjured up?

    2. Why it’s fizzy

  10. Christmas: Brazil versus UK

    Christmas: Brazil versus UK

    We all love Christmas. But sometimes we forget about how the rest of the world celebrates it.

    I’m from Brazil (Pedro from the content team). So, I’m going to talk about the traditions of my beautiful, wild and restless home country, and how they differ to those in the UK.

    Christmas in Brazil

    Now, my Christmas is pretty different when compared to a British Christmas. Let me explain:

    Dreaming of a white Christmas

    The first thing you’d notice is the temperature change. Brazil, being in the southern hemisphere, is extremely hot during Christmas.

    No white Christmas for us!

    The night before Christmas

    Our festivities start slightly earlier too. Families gather on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas Day.
