Present Yourself with Lost Crates

Subscription boxes filled with curiosities

lost crates!

Opening presents never gets old.

You, however, do.

One of the benefits of being a grown-up? Shamelessly gifting yourself.

Feel like a kid again with Lost Crates, a locally based subscription service that ships boxes of curiosities to your (or if you’re gift giving, someone else’s) door. The catch: You don’t know what you’re getting.

First, pick your fancy. May’s themes include Foodie (Recipe), Eco (Keep It Glassy), Housewares (Grill & Chill), and Found In (currently Colette, Paris), to name a few. Claim your spot on the waiting list for a partner crate curated by Design Milk (partners rotate).

A few weeks later, an impeccably designed box arrives. Depending on your order, you’ll discover hard-to-find Japanese office supplies, gourmet snacks, notepads, Malin+Goetz products, picnic accoutrements, and tote bags.

Monthly, quarterly, and one-time subscriptions are available.

Make it a gift that keeps on giving.

Available online at lostcrates.com, $20 and up.
