With our ability to access the entire world with smartphones, laptops and tablets, is society starved for the element of surprise? Maybe that’s part of the reason for the uptick in subscription shopping services. There’s Fancy, StitchFix, Birchbox and Love with Food, to name a few. Whether you’re looking for great pieces for your wardrobe, healthy snacks, baby gear, makeup or the latest trends, there’s a service for you. Some simply send you a box each month with the understanding that the value of the items inside is more than your monthly fee; others let you send back the products you don’t want, minus a fee for using the service.
Either way, there is something exciting about knowing a package is on its way to you and you have no idea what’s inside. Whether the contents are chosen by stylists, celebrities or other experts, the newest and coolest comes right to your doorstep. All you have to do is sit back and wait for the delivery truck.
