It’s becoming pretty clear that monthly subscription boxes are the ‘new thing’.  Everything from snacks to household goods to kids’ crafts is available to arrive on your front doorstep.  It is very interesting to watch the growth in this monthly ‘box’ trend and a few are definitely making their mark in my mind!

I was approached a couple of months ago by a newer-to-market business called Vancity Box.  This monthly subscription box offers something very unique which is the fact that, each month, it is packed full of LOCAL goodies and handmade items from Vancouver and other areas of BC. That Petite Puf cotton candy that you keep seeing at events and pop-ups around town… it has been in a  Vancity Box. Those incredible Vancouver Candle Co. candles… I got one in my November Vancity Box! Just to give an example of the gems that you’d be enjoying every month that you open a new box.

By becoming an “Official Vancouverite” (a.k.a a subscriber to Vancity Box), you are not only getting exciting monthly deliveries, but you are also supporting some really cool local artisans and vendors in the process.  I know how important shopping local is to so many of us, and Vancity Box makes it easy by doing all the curation FOR YOU.  All you need to do is open the box and be pleasantly surprised with your gifts.

The value of the contents in each box is up to $80, while you only pay $49.95.  That’s $50/month for 5-8 new items from the coolest local artisans our city has to offer! This would be such an awesome birthday gift for that ‘tough to shop for’ person in your life!!

Vancity Box

Living in Vancouver for so many years  made us fall in love with everything it has to offer. Whether it be the nature in our backyard, countless types of foods and restaurants, active and healthy lifestyle choices,  or  the number of small businesses that make up more than 90% of companies in BC. We can really agree that it is the best place to live!

We love the city so much that we decided to package it up in a box and send them off to our subscribers every month. Vancity Box really is Our City in a Box.

And plus, who doesn’t love receiving mystery gifts every month?

    That is so neat! I live in Vancouver but I haven’t heard of this until today. I really enjoy subscription services so I think I am going to give this one a go!
