Mental Post-Its

Thoughts, Notes and General Mental Mayhem

Christmas x 12 = AWESOME

176959079I’ve joined the monthly subscription box revolution! I’ve been circling the idea for a while since my co-worker turned me on to them a while back. But I wanted a different focus for my box than she was receiving, so I began to do some research.

If you aren’t familiar with the concept, it’s pretty much in the name. With a monthly box subscription, you receive a box each month full of goodies. The really fun part is that the items are almost always a surprise. You just sign up for a type of box, and the company fills in the gaps.

I had NO IDEA how many different services exist! You can find all kinds of boxes like snacks, coffee, tea, allergy-friendly foods, pets, children, baby, beauty, men’s products, household, vegan, music, gluten-free, indie products, women run business, fair trade, shoes, healthy, fitness, travel, ethnic foods, fashion, etc. Crazy. So, even though it took me hours to make my picks, I had a lot of fun browsing!

Here’s what I came down to…

My preferred criteria:

  • Eco-friendly and people-friendly
  • Variety of products, not just food
  • Charity model of some sort, doing good
  • Wanted to try one box before subscribing or easy cancellation
  • Coupon code 😉

Finalists:

Vegan Presence  (Ordered one box to try.)

Conscious Box-Vegan (Ordered one box to try.)

Eco-Emi (Ordered one box to try.)

The Vegan Box (I decided the cost was more than I wanted to pay monthly.)

Trade As One (More than I want to pay, but how can I not want to support this company!)

(I have recently started eating more vegan, hence the narrowed focus of the finalists. It’s not something I know a lot about yet.)

Since I’m still awaiting my sample boxes, I haven’t yet made a final decision. But I’ll let you know! These sample boxes were a birthday month gift from me to me, which by the way, I loved.

Georgia Crafted

Blissmo Box
