Over time I’ve seen many box subscriptions pop up. The idea is that you pay a set amount each month and get a glorious box of goodies delivered to your door. You’ll remember we told you about The Counter’s Love Box awhile back. Following that post I had a reader ask me for a list of different box subscriptions available locally. I’ve found a few favourites I thought I’d share with you. Obviously I cannot list every box subscription service in the country but these are a few of my favourites that have popped up. If you have any others you want to add to the list, feel free to comment with links or drop me an email. For now, here is a list of South African box subscriptions we love:
We’ve told you about this glorious delivery service before but it still had to make our list. Each month you get a yummy box of delicious home made treats. Think chocolate brownies, fudge and rocky road bars. It costs R200 a month for a 3 month subscription (i.e. you’ll need to spend R600 over 3 months).
Dark Carnival’s Geek Box
If you dream about being a Jedi or wish you had super powers you’ll love the monthly Dark Carnival Geek Box. Imagine a surprise box that arrives monthly filled with all sorts of geeky delights – from T-Shirts to comic books to collectibles. The Dark Carnival Geek Box is R450 a month.
Every girl loves a pair of gorgeous panties. For R149 Lingerie Letters delivers a new set of underwear to you monthly. It’s a funky way to spice up your undergarments and keep your cupboard stocked with fun and sexy underwear.
There is very little more glorious than a glass of bubbly. Champagne of the month delivers boxes of the good stuff to your door four times a year. They offer packages ranging from R1050 all the way through to R5400.
I’ve never used this service but I’ve heard a few good things. You’ll get make up and cosmetic samples delivered to your door once a month. This is a clever one for those that are lipstick obsessed. I think it costs R119 a month – but I’ll be honest I struggled to navigate the website to confirm this.
This naughty little delivery service packs sexy boxes to spice up your intimate moments. Think 50 shades of grey themed boxes so romantic valentine’s day inspired celebrations. Each box is crafted around a theme and includes kinky and sexy goodies you may be too afraid to purchase from that dodgy looking red light store down the road. The standard box costs R550.
This subscription is ideal for your little one. You can arrange that they receive a monthly package filled with educational toys and books that are designed to suit his or her age. This is a great way to keep your little one’s mind engaged and off the tablet for awhile. Deliveries subscription-based
o the Box
This subscription based service is designed specifically for women and provides local brands (with a few international surprises) in a goodie box each month. Goodies include stationary, homeware, food items, accessories and beauty products. A box will set you back R299.95.
Do you have any other monthly box subscriptions I need to add to my list?
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
