I don't currently subscribe to any monthly subscription boxes, but let me tell you this -- I am starting to really love the concept!
Who doesn't love getting mail, especially a package? I was so excited to receive a box from Mission Cute, which is a pretty special subscription service because they give back 50% of net proceeds to a different nonprofit each and every month. (Same reason why we love companies like Toms and Warby Parker so much.)
One of the reviews on the website compares Mission Cute to "Etsy in a Box" and I have to agree with that. One of the items I received in my February box is this beautiful statement necklace, which I wear about once a week. The colors are ivory, gold, and a very light citrine color. It is a new favorite in my jewelry box.
Each box comes with a card that describes that month's nonprofit. They partner with nonprofits all over the country, but this month was pretty special to me because the charity was right in my city of Charlotte, NC.
The box and packaging itself are put together so well. You can tell that this company takes pride in putting together each and every one!
My February box included a chiffon polka-dotted scarf, some L'Occitane Cherry Blossom hand cream, my fun statement necklace, a crocheted ear warmer (I almost wouldn't mind another snow day now that I have this!) and some fancy paper straws.
The Mission Cute boxes start at $29/month, and shipping is always free. And if you want to meet the beauty and the brains behind this awesome concept, it's Samantha from The Ledford Life!
A big thumbs up to this subscription box that definitely lives up to its name.
