1. Jewelry is my favorite box item hands down. It can usually fit everyone, and a lot of items I have loved so much I just had to go online and shop more! It can be something small, but whenever I get jewelry I light up!
2. Packaging is the most important thing. I live in a very hot climate, and I can't tell you how many times candles and such have melted. Luckily, these have been packaged separately so they didn't ruin anything else in the box.
3. As a year-long subscriber, I tend to get the same things over and over. I have enough hotel-sized soaps to last me a LIFETIME! But some of them have caught my eye, so make sure your product is eye-catching, and always leave a card.
4. Discounts go a BIG way! I'm way more tempted to look at someone's site if they include even something little like free shipping or 10% off.
You can't cater to everyone, but you can cater to as many people as possible. Make sure you have a card or tag clearly marking your store or how to reach you, a carefully and originally packaged product, and possibly a discount and I'm sure your business will boom!
