Birchbox 52 Bright Ideas for a Rainy Day

What’s your take on stormy weather? Major bummer, or delicious excuse to stay indoors? When we posed this question to Birchbox staffers, the response was unanimous: rainy days are simply the best. After a group huddle, we came up with no fewer than 52 ideas for rainy-day fun. The results of our brainstorming session turned into this deck of 52 cards, complete with original illustrations from our design team. We loved how they turned out—and we think you will too.

silly

Although cute, the whole idea seems a little silly for birchbox subscribers. I would not spend the money for this.

Really?

I received a "sample" of these cards in my Birchbox this month. There were two cards-- one of them was advising me to go shopping on Birchbox.com.

Really?

Obviously this didn't count as one of our samples (because I was really happy with April's box otherwise), but I got one of these cards in my box this month and cringed.

Really??? Mine was a tip to work out on a rainy day. Thanks, Birchbox. I'd totally pay $10 to hear a whole month's worth of that sage-like wisdom.

I think if you marketed this toward tweens, it could be really fun. I'd definitely buy something like this as a stocking stuffer for some of my little cousins - it's kind of like the American Girl Doll activity books my friends and I loved so much as kids with he cutesy drawings and suggestions for girl time. But making these weirdo cards for adult women? So strange. I can't believe this is actually on your site for purchase and I'm almost a bit embarrassed for you.

If you want to send out tips, do make-up or skin care tips - even wellness and workout tips! But be specific (don't just say "go to a workout class with a friend!") - tell me that I can get rid of stray mascara smudges on fresh eye shadow by waiting for it to dry and then wiping with a clean q-tip or give me a list of 10 things (ranging from decreased dark circles to weight loss) that drinking ice water can do for me! Make it into a desk calendar, rather than cards. Your ideas are almost there, Birchbox! Just update them a tiny bit to keep up with the age of your target audience.

Okay I guess?

This was cute as a "sample" in my Birchbox- but I'm not sure why anyone would pay $10 for a box of these. I didn't hate it, but it just made extra trash along with the rest of my packaging.

Cute!

These are super cute and super fun. I think they they would be great as part of a gift. I really like how each card is designed.

Agreed - cute idea...but

I like the thought of it and was happy to see what they were like as my "bonus" but I think I would've appreciated something else as suggestions on cards besides what were given. For example, I loved the "hack" articles and things along those lines - tips for cleaning your brushes, etc.

Cute, but not a product

The idea is cute, but more as an advertising insert than a product. I may reuse the little envelope for something though. I always love Birchbox packaging.
