While it may have originated in the United States, the subscription box craze that swept across our southern neighbours has spread to Canada.
The trend started back in 2010 when a company called Birchbox launched their first beauty subscription box. Since then, the trend has grown exponentially. As a win-win for both customer and business owner, it provides companies with the chance to “up-sell” products while consumers get to try myriad products for fraction of the price.
Indeed, it is one of the best gift ideas for practically any occasion. You can select from a whole array of themes and brands in a range of prices. What’s more, you can even subscribe to a few boxes, and then use individual orders as gifts so you never have to hustle last minute to find something.
Here are some of the most sought after subscription boxes in Canada.
