Let me be honest: I’m hesitant of subscription boxes.
A little explanation: The idea of subscription boxes is fun. You pay a fee and once per determined time (usually monthly) you get a box curated to your likes and interests delivered. It’s filled with things like samples, new products and other things that fit in the genre of the box. My hesitation is that I’m paying for things I can’t pick, so I might be stuck with items I don’t need or want. Food boxes make the most sense, but what if it doesn’t fit my diet or taste profile? (You sound fun in theory, coconut chips.)
When Yogi Surprise offered me a recent subscription box to review, I was cautiously optimistic. But when I received the box only a few days later-which was a fun, pleasant surprise itself-I was very pleased with what I saw. When I opened it it did feel slightly like the healthy living version of Christmas morning, I let out an audible noise of excitement seeing the contents of the box. My box (which isn’t the current box) contained (with my thoughts following the item):
- Italian Zest flavored flax crackers: Really good flavor and texture, and loved that they can stand on their own or well with dips and hummus.
- Yoga mat intentions: Not something I would use (the most disappointing thing, but still not that bad), but good in theory. I will save this as a gift or a freebie for the right person when he or she wins something on my blog. (Note: That’s something I try to do with extra freebies.)
- The Chakra Bible: Something I need to spend more time with, and I wouldn’t buy myself (because I would see it as an indulgence) but I love that it’s included and I will use it.
- Adora Mood-Boost Chakra roll on: This tranquility scent is perfect before bed to clear my head and give me a restful night of sleep.
- Mavi Bandz headband: Hands down the best workout headband I’ve ever owned, for a variety of reasons: It’s never once slipped out of place (I’ve used it running, hiking, yoga, etc.), it can be adjusted, and it’s fun and comfortable. My favorite item in the box, and I would buy more when I need more headbands.
- Kitchen Herbs Organic Seed Collection: Because I already had herbs in my garden I didn’t plant these, but it’s fun for people who don’t have room and it’s the right market for anyone receiving the box.
Get Your Own Yogi Surprise Subscription Box
While this particular box isn’t available any longer, it shows what you can expect every month. For the price I (at minimum) received that value of products that I would enjoy. And it really seems tailored toward and geared for the right market of yogis (natural, health-conscious, concerned about ingredients and production). I really liked the box and would get it again.
Based on a unique theme each month, there are two monthly subscription boxes from which to choose. The “Lifestyle Box” features 6-8 full-size yoga lifestyle items with a snack that’s vegetarian and GMO-Free. Chakra healing stones, aromatherapy, natural products for hair and skin, yoga accessories, delicious treats and more are a few of the items found in the Lifestyle Box. At a retail value of $70, the monthly subscription price is only $44.95. The Yogi Surprise Jewelry Box subscription consists of 2 handmade pieces + 1 organic treat. Beautiful malas, handcrafted bracelets, and necklaces represent a sampling of what’s included in the monthly jewelry box. Chosen for their beauty and balancing energy, these items collectively retail for over $65 but have a monthly subscriber fee of $24.99/month.
