Subscription boxes


#1

You get any of these?

Don’t see the point in them for any of my interests because I’d rather spend £x a month on something I definitely want.

Got a crafty one for my gf’s birthday but I’ve really done myself, because it’s a rolling one rather than fixed term so I’ve essentially spent £infinity on that one gift.

How is this still a thing? I guess overheads are very, very low.

don’t know what you’re talking about pal


#4

Have tried a couple of beer boxes. The value is just about acceptable, but like you say, I’d rather use the equivalent money on buying stuff I definitely want.

Mrs HYG has done several runs of Birch Box, which is a make up subscription, she generally likes it though I think most of the stuff ends up not being used at all.

what in the name of all that is good and decent would I want with all that fucking tat??


#7

So you’d fit in better with your colleagues.


#8

Are those fake glasses? JFC.


#9

Used to get a couple of graze boxes a week when they started out as a thing. Now can’t be bothered but as I’m still on a very low price so I still get one a month to keep it going.

I’ve used birchbox a few times which does beauty things, it’s really good value for money when they have good items like expensive brushes or sponges. I tried a vegan snack one once but it was too healthy, my idea of a good vegan snack is not a bag of kale chips. If they had stuff like snack cakes or marshmallows i’d be all over that :heart_eyes:

Yep. Flavourly and The Crafted Crate. Both decent value and save me the hassle of buying interesting beers.


#12

My parents got me the Flavourly box as a gift for six months. It’s not bad, first one was a bunch of Scandi stuff I’d never heard of.


#13

actually keep meaning to do that.

which is better?


#14

Crafted crate has changed recently hasn’t it?


#15

Flavourly ones good, especially now I’ve changed to just getting dark beers.


#16

Yeah, I got an email about it, but was a bit tl;dr. Think I’ve got the first crate in their new incarnation coming today or tomorrow.


#17

If I had to keep one and cancel one, I’d keep Flavourly. Better value for money, I think.


#18

My mate Russel is one of the founders. Think they’re brewing colab beers now.


#19

Got that edit in seconds before I could take the piss.

Their their.
