I love the subscription model for Birchbox, but I'm not always crazy about the products I receive every month. It's nice to get an almost-unexpected something in the mail that's not a bill or an ad. What I like about Birchbox: an assortment of products that I probably would not have found on my own, nice packaging, feeling that the stuff was deliberately chosen/curated, a sense of exploring a world I am not totally familiar with (beauty products).
What other companies/clubs will mail me fun stuff for a small fee (or even for free)? I like things like toys, artwork, games, beauty products, jewelry, puzzles, pens, stationery, and crafting stuff, especially knitting. I've seen this question
as well as this question
, but a surprising number of those services no longer exist. No magazines, please. I'm in the southern US, and my budget is $20/month.
