While they have been around for a few years now, monthly subscriptions boxes continue to grow in popularity. Some are so hooked, that they officially have a subscription addiction. Here’s why.
What Are Monthly Subscription Boxes?
It all depends on what you subscribe to, but a subscription box is a flat rate monthly, quarterly, or annual subscription for an agreed upon range of products. This could include anything from coffee to accessories, skincare products, healthy snacks, sweet treats, kid’s arts and crafts, and more! Kind of like wine companies have been doing for years, but for an endless option of products.
Why Are They So Addictive?
These flat-rate subscriptions are an excellent way for new or small companies to get their products in the hands of their target audience. For subscribers, it’s not only exciting getting your box in the mail each month—but the contents are always a surprise. And while some of the products may not be your cup of tea, you can always regift or donate them. It’s also an inexpensive (usually) way to treat yourself.
Subscriptions Make The Perfect Gift
Last but certainly not least, if you need to find a gift for the person who has everything, or who is just super hard to shop for—subscription boxes are the way to go. With a variety of niche options, there is something for everyone. And don’t worry, you don’t have to gift a full year—just a few months will do. You will need their mailing address though.
Subscriptions start as low as $10 per month, and most are less than $25 per month—all of which come in at an attractive discount.
