Subscription boxes have become ingrained in ecommerce culture. Today, there’s practically a subscription box for everything. According to Forbes, in April 2017, subscription websites received about 37 million visits, a number that has grown by 800% since 2014. So why the explosive growth for subscription boxes?
For starters, starting your own subscription box has relatively low overhead costs, making it a perfect starting point for people with an entrepreneurial spirit. Simply choose the niche you’re interested in, get started with a WordPress web hosting setup, make a list of curated projects, and plan out your financials. Platforms like Cratejoy make it easier than ever for the everyday person to start and grow their own subscription boxes.
As moms, there are many family-geared subscription boxes that you can take advantage of. Whether you’re looking for subscription boxes that make taking care of the kids a little easier, or subscription boxes that offer a little pampering and fun, there’s a subscription box for everyone. Here’s a few to consider:
This monthly box costs $34 and are perfect for everything from pregnancy to preschool. With the Blumm box, each month you’ll get a few items for both you and your baby. According to HelloSubscription, the company curates its boxes by including some of the highest-rated products in your child’s age category.
What’s best is that before the box is delivered, you’re offered a preview option that allows you to “skip” any items that you aren’t fond of, making the box even more tailored to you. The Bluum June 2018 box included several developmental toys, toddler sunglasses, a color-in puzzle with an owl design, Melissa & Doug Lace & Trace Shapes, and an EeBoo Good Little Citizens Protect The Earth Plush Polar Bear. Cumulatively, these toys are well over what the payment price of the box is.
Ritual is newer to the subscription box industry, but it’s already made quite an impression. For just $30 per month, you’ll get 30 multivitamins geared towards women. Unlike other multi-vitamins, Ritual focuses on their commitment to offer the purest vitamin type.
They’re non-GMO, vegan, gluten and allergen free, made in the USA, and don’t contain any synthetic fillers or colorants. Vitamins included are Vitamin D3, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Folate, Magnesium, Iron, Boron, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K2 MK7.
