I’ve said it before, I am a huge fan of subscription boxes! They are a definite guilty pleasure for me. I do my best to tame the beast so to speak, and I stick to only two subscription boxes per month. So I was delighted when I received an offer to review a subscription box I had never heard of called Blind Surprise.
“Blind Surprise” is unique because the majority of the items are handmade by artists such as those found on cool sites like Etsy. Blind Surprise encourages their subscribers, and other talented craftsman to submit their products in order to be featured in the Blind Surprise box. Pretty neat if you ask me, and I’m not even a crafty person!
On that note, the people at Blind Surprise are seeking more handmade art from my talented “Crazy Mommy” community. The company relies on the craftiness of people to supply their subscribers with unique, interesting, and handmade items. If you are interested in submitting your handmade crafts there will be a link at the end of this article for you.
The items I received in my Blind Surprise box were a mix of handmade gifts and items from smaller businesses. Each box is individualized according to an interest inventory that you take while going through the subscription process. The survey asks questions like your age, if the surprise is for you or a friend, and if you enjoy things such as: cooking, alcohol, working out, technology, fashion, travel, humor, or surprise items. You can choose three or more interests. I selected cooking, fashion, and travel. When my box arrived the items that were included in my box were: a handmade eco-friendly, reusable snack bag, Sassy Q BBQ Sweet Rub, Fresh Tape Resealable Bag Tape, and a Fred Flipside dishwasher sign (this item was out of stock at the time of delivery, so the company was nice enough to send it along later). All interesting and unique surprises!
Here is a breakdown of what I liked a lot and what did I not enjoy as much!
What did I like?
1-Getting a surprise can be an iffy proposition, but I loved the idea of getting a box with no idea what was going to be inside. The suspense was awesome!
2-I like that the company tries to incorporate and support artists and small business by helping get their products in front of a larger audience.
3-The items selected for me were all centered around food, and if you know me, then you know how much I LOVE food!
4-The company was very receptive and apologetic when I notified them that I was missing an item. As soon as the item was in stock, it was immediately mailed to me. Good customer service is very important!
What did I not enjoy?
1-Like I mentioned above, the idea of getting a surprise is an iffy proposition when you are spending $25.00.
As you can tell, I enjoyed the Blind Surprise box that was gifted to me. I encourage you to take a look at their site, and discover what Blind Surprise is waiting for you!
