Ah, the gourmet subscription box. Why is it that we so often think of them as stuffed with gimmicky, highly-processed or even closeout-type items, and designed to appeal to our impulse buying tendencies but rarely living up to our expectations? Maybe it’s because our intuition is right in many cases. This being said, you could imagine how refreshing it was when we discovered our fantasy subscription box from Mary’s Secret Ingredients!
Mary is Mary Pisarkiewicz, author of the internationally-recognized food blog Love: The Secret Ingredient. And what is it about Mary’s subscription box that sets it apart? Several things. For starters, it features a curated selection of natural, artisanal, full-sized food products that serve as enhancements to seasonal meal ideas, and typically includes a useful kitchen implement. Move over, the enclosed literature, which is customized by Mary, gives the full background story on each producer. And here’s my favorite part: Mary uses her website and newsletters to supplement your box with her own kitchen-tested recipes, so you can put the contents to their best use!
And finally, the aspect of Mary’s subscription box that you don’t often encounter with other boxes: Her commitment to Feed The Children. She donates a portion of annual proceeds each year to this global charity and their fight to eradicate hunger. It’s just another unique reason to consider this box, for yourself or as the perfect gift to your foodie friends and family.
It also makes a thoughtful and strategic corporate gift, keeping your brand at top of mind for your clients and referrals. And don’t think of Mary’s subscription box as strictly a holiday season acquisition; Mary issues a brand-new box quarterly, jam-packed with goodies that are appropriate for inspiring seasonal fare, delivered right to the recipient’s door.
