8 Surprising Subscription Box Ideas
Love With Food
Best for: Discerning snackers
Love With Food is on a mission. Two, actually: To fill mailboxes with hard-to-find gourmet goodies packed in themed sets (healthy, New-Year’s-resolution-friendly treats in January or sweet Valentine’s Day surprises in February), and to fill food banks across the country with meals for those in need. (Every Love With Food box purchase buys one meal donation through the Feeding America Network and Share Our Strength—No Kid Hungry.)
Frequency and fees: $10 per month for 3-month plans (shipping $2), 6-month plans (shipping $1), or 12-month plans (free shipping).
Pros: Subscribers get discounts (and often free shipping) on items in the online shop; last month’s deals included 15% off a four-jar sampler of Fat Toad Farm's Goat Milk Caramel Sauce and nearly half off a variety pack of specialty olive oils and vinegars by Oliovera.
Cons: Some sample sizes might be just enough to whet your appetite—but not quite satisfy it.
