Blind Surprise June 2015 Review and Coupon Codes

Blind Surprise is a pretty fun subscription that is intended for gifting but can be sent to yourself as well. When you order, you fill out a profile giving the basics about yourself or the person you are gifting to and a general direction you would like the gift to go. By that I mean you check a few boxes like Jewelry or Cooking or Fashion. Then they hunt through their warehouse and find the perfect random thing to send to you (or someone else).
Recently, they revamped their system and are now working with Etsy vendors to expand their range of items. Genius idea, in my opinion. I love Etsy and handmade things. Every month, they work with 5-10 new Etsy artists and other unique brands, and send you their amazing gifts based on your interests. So when they had a coupon offer, I took advantage of it and decided to surprise myself with something fab.

The Cost: $30/month

What You Get: Every box will have 1-3 gifts that are worth a total of $20-30. Curators work hard to find something beautiful, useful, and extremely unique.

Peddling Panda Navy and White Infinity Scarf- This is a very light infinity scarf made of viole. I absolutely love the bird pattern! I think it's so cute I wish it was more than just a scarf. I mean, I love it as a scarf but I wouldn't mind a pillow with this pattern. This is from an Etsy shop run by two sisters who love fashion.
It's a pretty perfect summer statement scarf because it is so light and airy. Can you imagine how cute this would be with navy shorts and a plain white tee? I just ordered some hot pink flats, too.
Value: $29
EverydaySummit Greeting Cards- This is a pack of three handmade greeting cards. Each card is printed and then hand painted with monochromatic colors and a touch of metallic gold paint. I perused her Etsy store and I really like her style. It's very simple and clean. And yeah, I feel like I could have made something like this myself. But I didn't.
Value: $9

VERDICT: Since Blind Surprise is working with Etsy sellers I don't expect an amazing deal. I do expect something fun, creative, cute and unexpected. I love the complete surprise factor. You have absolutely NO idea what you're going to get. No one gets the same thing and they work with new sellers every month so there's always a rotation of new products. I'm really happy with this box. It was a good surprise for me. I had a coupon so I paid $22.50 for it and I feel this was worth it. I seriously love the scarf.

I think it's a fun way to gift. I can see that it would be handy as business gifting, too.

If you would like to sign up for Blind Surprise, you can do that right here. If you do a month to month box, use code HEYMOM to get 10% off. If you buy a 3 month or longer subscription, use code MEMBER to get $15 off your total. Today only (June 1st), use code June to get $6 off your order.

  1. I love that this box works with Etsy sellers - that should make for some nice surprises indeed. :)

  2. The scarf is cute and it's nice that it is a complete surprise!

    1. I think they've really improved the box by going to Etsy. I got one other box last year and it was also a surprise but not as fun/cute as this one. It had funny, gag-type gifts in it (I used them as stocking stuffers).
