In quick terms, a subscription box is a recurring physical delivery of niche-orientated products packaged in a gift box designed to create a pleasent experience and offer additional value on top of the actual products. Its not about the products that are inside, its about the feeling we get as we receive a present. Whenever we receive a gift remember the feeling of excitement and thrill, its a great feeling and something our eco friendly subscription box does for our customers.
How to define a subscription box?
Honestly? There actually is no definition of a 'subscription box', even wikipedia's entry is extremely vague. However, we define it as 'cool stuff I like, gifted to me every month in a gift box'. I mean who doesn't like receiving presents at Christmas or on birthdays, well now subscription box services offers this feeling every month and so do we.
How does it work?
If you are reading this you might want to check our FAQ for a little more info on how it works but in essence once you’ve settled on a box that suits you, you can decide on your subscription terms. Most people opt for a continuous subscription so there’s something to look forward to every month, but other options often include a one-off purchase, or 3 and 6-month subscriptions including us!
Some subscription box companies will require you to complete a short survey prior to ordering to ensure the box’s contents are tailor-made just for you, others will totally surprise you each month with a range of relevant products that you’re sure to love.
You can make your payment safely and securely online through us, and you can begin receiving our ethically and sustainably sourced gift boxes.
What can you expect inside your subscription box?
Subscription boxes typically fall into two categories; discovery boxes and convenience boxes. Our subscription falls into the discovery box
Typically, discovery subscription boxes will contain between 4 to 7 items ready for you to get stuck into. These are usually a mixture of full-size and sample-size products, some from brands you’re likely to have heard of before and a few new options to broaden your horizons!
A huge benefit of subscription boxes is their ability to introduce you to new brands and uncover items you didn’t even know you needed. So, if you’re passionate about going plastic free you've come to the right place.
Convenience-style boxes, on the other hand, will deliver necessary items to you every month so you never have to worry about purchasing them again. HelloFresh, for example, delivers delicious meals to you on a daily basis so you can avoid the hassle of a grocery shop. Likewise, Harry’s shaving box sends you a brand new razor and shaving foam exactly when you need them.
What are the benefits of subscription boxes?
It’s hardly surprising that subscription boxes have taken off they way they have; who wouldn’t enjoy a box of goodies delivered through their letterbox every month? They’re not only a great way to indulge your passion, but discover new products and enjoy some surprises along the way too.
Even better still, subscription boxes make perfect gifts for friends and family. Whether it’s for a birthday, Christmas, or even just because, a subscription box is a unique and thoughtful present that will provide joy long after the excitement of the day has passed.
