Subscription Boxes

There is no denying that subscription boxes are becoming more and more popular, and new ones seem to be popping up every week, there is something for every occasion and taste from beauty boxes to stationery, food, flowers and drinks, plus many many more.

Being a blogger I get to read many blog posts about subscription boxes, and these have to be some of my favourite posts to read, I love seeing what is in each box and then reading about the items.

I have tried a few boxes in the past, a couple of cooking ones including hello fresh and simply cook and these have given me some great new meal ideas and some we still make and enjoy now, I have even tried a cheese toastie subscription box and loved it, I also love treat boxes and love opening up my box to see what items are inside and trying them out, and lets face it, we all love receiving something nice in the post.

You can find a list of some of the best subscription boxes available here, there really is something for everyone, and always a great idea for a gift idea.

I have a long list of subscription boxes that I want to try, and am always seeing new companies bringing out new boxes. ย Yes they are swamping the market, but I personally think they are a great idea. ย It gives you the chance to try new products that you might not have tried before, or even heard of at an affordable price (the items in a subscription box are usually higher value than if you purchased them individually.

What are your views on subscription boxes, do you love them or hate them?

  1. I am amazed at the range of subscription boxes that are now available, it seems like you can get a box for almost any type of product these days. I enjoy receiving these boxes as well, it’s good fun to open them up and find out what is packed inside. There are some out there that are much better than others and there are some that I would still like to try as well.

    1. I like opening them and seeing what is inside, this is one of the upsides of blogging or reading blogs, you can get to find out which are the better boxes to subscribe to x

  2. There are so many and like you I love them ๐Ÿ™‚ I get 3 beauty boxes a month but as a beauty blogger, these really help me find out about the latest products. I have had Hello Fresh as well which I loved. I have also just signed up to Treat Box as well so I’m really looking forward to getting my February box x

  3. I think that subscription boxes are a great idea as well but some of them are really expensive. I would love to try some of the food ones but at ยฃ40 a box it’s too much in my opinion.

    1. Simply Food is cheaper but you do have to buy the main ingredients as well, so depending on where you shop is not too bad, we have tried Simply Fresh and although expensive we were very impressed x

    1. I have tried a couple of subscription boxes, we used to get simply food, but stopped after it started repeating all the time, so we had obviously tried all the recipes x

  4. There are so many different ones out there that it can be hard to know which ones to try. I have had mixed experiences with them.

  5. I like how there is usually an offer on your first box so you can see if you like it. I have tried a Mindful Chef box but I just coudn’t be bothered to cook the meals, so that’s not for me haha!

  6. I can’t believe how many different subscription boxes there are, it’s crazy! I’ve only ever bought one off boxes but I really want to try My Little Box and Love Me Beauty xo

  7. I’ve had so many subscription boxes over the past few years and I have to admit most of the beauty ones bore me now. I still get a lifestyle box which is full of a complete mixture but that’s it x

  8. I haven’t tried any yet because I’m really sceptical about paying money and not know what I’m going to get. I think the beauty one are brilliant as gifts though ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I think there is a lot of trial and error in these, but if you look at reviews you can often judge whether it is worth paying for or not x

  9. There are soooo many subscription boxes out there! To be honest, I’m usually disappointed in them. The only ones I like and feel are worth the money are the book ones! I like Book of the Month and Hello Book Lover!
