When you are working at home, it’s great to take a break and walk out to the mailbox. Or open the door and get a delivery from a subscription box company. Here are some of my favourites:
Aussie Biz Chic
A monthly subscription box with a learning hub and community for female entrepreneurs. Each box contains a personal development or business book, and 4 to 5 stationery and lifestyle items to help motivate you and grow your business. Just subscribe by the 15th of the month at the Aussie Biz Chic website.
Book lovers will love Cratejoy’s book subscription boxes. These monthly deliveries contain a curated selection of books and themed goodies. There are boxes devoted to kids, young adults, mystery and horror fans, personal growth, leadership and productivity, wellness and mindfulness and more.
A UK-based business that sends monthly subscription boxes containing licensed and exclusive merchandise. Enjoy receiving boxes themed by wizardry, wearables, and wands – ideal for any Harry Potter fans. You might get prop replicas, exclusive t-shirts, or artwork. Order at the Geek Gear website. #GeekGearBox
Loot Crate is a pop culture subscription service. These themed boxes are divided into pop culture (horror, anime, sci-fi), gaming, and film and TV crates. A crate may contain a wearable plus a t-shirt, comic book, household item, vinyl figure, and something useful.
You might be lucky enough to get your hands on a limited-edition crate like Avatar, artist Junji Ito, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and licensed merchandise. For more information, view the Loot Crate website.
Letters from Afar
I’m lusting after Letters from Afar. You’ll receive a letter from a fictitious 19th-century female explorer, Isabella Bird. The mail includes a letter, vibrant illustrations, field notes, and a map. You can learn about a new place each month. Join up at the Letters from Afar website.
If you love Asian candy and snacks, then the ToykoTreat might appeal. The box contains seasonal, exclusive, and limited-edition Japanese snacks that are only available in Japan for a limited time like Sakura Pepsi, Japanese Sake KitKats, and more. You’ll get 15 to 20 full-size Japanese snacks. There are several different plans, but you might like to start with a gift. Order via the TokyoTreat website.
Just be careful to read the terms and conditions and cancel any ongoing subscription or auto-billing agreements as your budget allows.
