Community Weigh-In is a new weekly series that polls the community on a range of subscription-related topics. Each week, we'll pose a new question to the community and then share the results here in the feed. Hop over to the MSA Forum to cast your vote for next week's poll!
As a group of passionate boxinistas, this community knows a thing or two about subscriptions, and you all have opinions. I've watched you debate whether spoilers are a zero or a hero, sing the praises of those perfect didn't-even-know-I-needed-it items, and suggest ways that a lackluster shipment could have been great with a few small tweaks. As a community, we may not always agree on what constitutes the perfect subscription, but we sure do have fun talking it out.
This series is designed to give us all a chance to do just that. Each week, I'll pose a new question in the MSA Forum, and then I'll round up the results to share with you all here in the feed. Last week, I asked:
Which item would you love to see featured in one of your subscriptions this spring?
Here are the choices:
- Floral Stationery
- Herb Garden Kit
- Designer Market Tote
- Pastel Nail Polish Set
- Insulated Picnic Tote
- Shimmery Eyeshadow
- Something Else
- Colorful Bud Vase
Participants are allowed to select more than one answer, so the percentages reflect the total number of voters who would like to see that item in a box this spring. Let's dive into the results!
36% of voters cast a ballot for Floral Stationery and an equal number wanted to see an Herb Garden Kit this spring. Coming in just a little bit behind is Designer Market Tote, which was selected by 32% of all voters. (I, too, am getting excited about spring farmers' markets!) 12% would be happy to see an Insulated Picnic Tote, while others are hoping for makeup. 16% would like to receive Pastel Nail Polish and 8% would get excited about some Shimmery Eyeshadow. At the bottom of the leaderboard is a Colorful Bud Vase with only 4%.
8% of voters wanted to see Something Else. Here are some suggestions from the community:
I would love to see a spring bulb kit to plant indoors such as daffodils or tulips 🌷! When you live in a colder climate is really brightens up the house and gets you in the spring mood well before you can plant outside. -woodall1880
incense or oil diffuser. -sisterfifi114
Maybe I’m just basic but a “French girl” straw bag or shopping tote would be so cute for spring/summer.. -mandi
There were also a number of votes for chocolate...
Why is no one sending me a box of fancy chocolates in a subscription box? -Jessica-MSA
I second this idea. I still have a tin from a fancy box of chocolates I got in some subscription many years ago. It makes me happy when I see it because the chocolates were yummy, the box is pink and metal, and I use it to store stuff. -anDreama
Yes to chocolates! All the chocolate! I remember Amazon had a short lived chocolate sub featuring small companies-I don’t think it was that expensive but I know it was really good and didn’t last long. -mandi
