You know, those people who literally seem to have everything? The ones who are impossible to buy for and make gift giving the ultimate nightmare? We all have someone like that in our inner circle.
The problem with these people is that they often buy things as they decide they want them, which doesn’t leave you much opportunity to plan ahead and pre-purchase anything. Well struggle no more because we have found the ultimate service for gift giving to those who seem to have it all – Blind Surprise!
What is Blind Surprise?
Chances are you have heard of Etsy before – a community of talented, hand craft artists. Well, each month Blind Surprise works with 5-10 of Etsy’s latest and greatest to put together a gift box based on your interests.
Whether you like fashion, technology or booze, there is a box to be crafted just for you…or in this case, your Valentine.
Their quick and simple 3 step process means you can put those house of brainstorming for Valentine’s Day gift ideas out of your mind. Instead, you head to their site and fill out a brief profile on your likes and interests, or those of the person you are buying for.
Next, you choose your subscription. What’s great is they offer various subscriptions based on your needs. For example, if you were looking for men’s valentine’s day gifts you would likely just subscribe for one month at $25 per box.
If you have birthdays coming up or anniversary gifts to purchase, you may prefer the 3 month option for $73 or the 6 month subscription for $145.
Maybe you’re looking to surprise yourself every month and there’s an option for that as well. Sign up to receive monthly boxes for just $25/month. This works via automatic payment so you just set it and forget it. That is of course, until your box arrives in the mail each month!
What You Can Expect
Whether you’re buying it for yourself or looking for Valentine’s Day gift ideas, you can expect quality with each delivery.
Once you place your order, you will receive a unique box containing 1-3 gifts valued at $20-30 in total. Typically one truly amazing gift will be chosen and included will be some literature on the artist and their story.
To make sure your gift is extra special you can include a personal note for the recipient by filling in the ‘Order Notes’ field on the checkout screen.
Normally each Blind Surprise box would be delivered on the 27th of each month, but if you’re looking to have it for Valentine’s day or any other special occasion, make a note in the ‘Order Notes’ field prior to check out. Be sure to give them 1 weeks notice to ensure it’s delivered on time though!
And there you have it – your special-occasion-too-hard-to-buy-person taken care of. So what are you waiting for?
