Themed Subscription Boxes
Have you heard about the cool new trend of themed subscription boxes? It is really quite clever and awfully convenient. Do you have the time it takes to look for just the right collection of items for the kitchen, food for maybe stationary? As a busy mom, I certainly don’t, so I am always looking for ways to save time and energy wherever I can. The idea behind the monthly subscription boxes is to have a company gather up several items in a specific theme and then have them delivered to you each month or quarter. How much fun does that sound? I would love to get a box of goodies each month, not knowing what could possibly inside! It’s like Christmas or your birthday each month!! There are a handful of companies who offer this service, but for me, there was only one that nailed it.
Lost Crates is a company with a brilliant concept whose roots are in Chicago. The original theme that started this wonderfully clever business was all things related to writing. The Lost Crates staff had put together stationary, notebooks, writing instruments, and desk accessories and offered them on a monthly basis. This idea was well received and successfully carried on for quite some time. Once the concept took off properly, their customer base began asking for more variety. From there Lost Crates began looking everywhere for just the right pieces that were cleverly designed, forward thinking and most of all fun. That is the foundation for the Lost Crates team; bring fun into what you love. From there, the creative geniuses at Lost Crates began offering 10 collections. You can choose to have the same theme for each delivery or you may want more spontaneity and choose a random selection. You can’t lose either way, so you get a great deal no matter what your choice.
Collection Of Cool Stuff
I am all about getting a collection of cool stuff delivered to my door. Lost Crates offers a total of 10 themes for you to choose from including housewares, foodie, eco-friendly and even picks from Angie or Jack. Since my kids are learning to cook, I chose the housewares theme, which was “Chef’n Baking (retailing at $68+$5 shipping). I want to tell you that unless a box of toys or candy was to come to our home, my kids could care less. Well, that was true until we received our crate of cool and funky kitchen gadgets! The box contained nesting mixing bowls, collapsible measuring cups, a fruit zester and more great items. We had the most fun over the weekend trying out all the awesome stuff in our box. With a child being home schooled, this box was perfect for lessons on counting, measuring, time management and a handful more. Lost Crates gives you the flexibility of several subscription options including monthly, quarterly or yearly (with free shipping). No matter your taste or budget, I think you will find something you want from Lost Crates.
