Clever idea: a Cairn outdoor subscription box.
Let's answer two questions here:
|Cairn Subscription Boxes||
In both answers,
keep the word
in your mind.
Hikers hike because we love surprises:
So it's logical to want to know immediately what's in that box!
And therein lies its appeal.
If you don't know what's going to be in the box, your wait time gains a certain urgency, a bit of drama.
And once the box arrives, it's going to be fun to open it up and see what's there for you.
The photo brings you there!
It is possible to succumb to two scenarios as a hiker:
If you recognized yourself, then this little brown box will shake you out of your stupor and get some juice (and gear) flowing into your hiking life again.
And then there's this scenario:
If you're like me, you know that your loved ones will ask you for a fresh, updated gift list around seasonal events and birthday time.
And if you're like me, you know that many of them don't know the difference between a spork and a stake.
So make it easy for them!
Be sure to tell them they can use the subscriber profile option to narrow down the box options to what you're most likely to enjoy, including food and beverage preferences, apparel sizing, and if you have a canine hiking companion.
Also tell them that a one time gift is no problem, and a gift message can be sent to you as a pre-surprise.
Kinda straightforward with the subscription service:
Each box pulls together different types of hike worthy surprises, including:
There isn't a particular formula used for stuffing the box, but you can see what past boxes have contained here.
Consider what you get for your purchase price:
So yeah, the price seems reasonable for all of that.
And look through the companies the box is sourced from: reputable, top notch gear brands, some really famous ones and up-and-comers, too.
This company is getting ready to launch something brand new:
In other words, build your own gear kit for hiking, car camping, backpacking or ultralight backpacking.
Then test out the gear they send to you, before you commit to buying it.
Keep what you love, send back the rest!
