I am a fan of treating myself to a little something special and one of my favourite ways to do this is with a subscription box. A mystery box full of goodies that arrives on your doorstep each month brimming with beautiful products, it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
What is a subscription box?
A subscription box is also a fabulous way to sample products that you may be curious about or even be introduced to products you never knew existed. Most subscription boxes will arrive with carefully curated products, some sample sizing and full size products, perfect for travel, gifts or to throw in your handbag.
This is an awesome way to try products, if you love them then there is no fear in purchasing, because you know what you are getting. It’s also a fab way for brands to get their product seen, sometimes very hard to do.
Subscription boxes are designed around occasion, passion or recipient and could be filled with makeup, skincare, hair care, food, crystals, wellness products, sporting products, art or even products from your favourite hobby. Some boxes can be purchased on a month by month basis or one off while others require a six or twelve month commitment and of course you can also send them as a gift. Some subscription boxes will also offer a first month discount and most have special offers or add on treats.
Who are these subscription boxes great for?
Looking after yourself is important so why not say ‘I love ME’ with a subscription box. They are also a great way to reward yourself for reaching personal or business goals. You deserve it!
get well gifts
If a friend is ill or is undergoing medical treatment and you don’t know how to help send them a one off subscription box for a pick me up or a subscription for something extra special.
Sometimes someone does something for you and you want to say ‘Thankyou’ but they don’t want you to make a fuss, so send a box to let you know you appreciate them, perfect for teachers too!
new Mumma gift
When a baby arrives the squawky one receives all the attention while sleep deprived Mum does all the hard work, sounds a bit unfair hey. Personally I have always given gifts to the Mumma but with a subscription box your gift will be appreciated month after month and what new Mumma wouldn’t want that to look forward to!
I mean, you could give a box of Roses chocolates or a gift subscription box filled with assorted goodies of a different kind. I know which I would prefer to receive and Cadbury has nothing to do with it.
