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.

Common Sense on Paper

Boring. Useless.
I got #25 which says to plan a trip and check out the best destinations of 2014. Umm... ok?
Even as a bonus perk this is a lame idea. I looked at the other tips and these are everyday ideas you probably thought of already. This didn't require originality or effort.
I don't need a paper card to suggest reading a book or taking a bubble bath.

Not Excited About This

Hoping that it isn't part of my box this month - truthfully, my state is in the midst of a historic, catastrophic drought, so, these cards are worthless to me and if/when we do get rain - I will be outside dancing for joy in it - not consulting cards.

Cute idea, but overpriced

In today's day and age of everything being digital, sometimes it's fun to have something tangible in front of you to play with. I think that is the idea behind these cards. You run out of things to do and can pick fun and cute ideas from this card pack. The sample card I got said "take a class at your gym." Not a bad idea whether it is raining or not.
I appreciate the novelty of this product, but I think a $5 pricepoint might be better. Maybe if a few more of the ideas were posted I'd have a better idea of overall content and be more likely to buy. As I mentioned before , we're in a digital age, so if I was looking for something to do on a rainy day, I'd head to my smartphone first. That being said, this would make a cute "add on"
gift for a friend.

For real?

This was not really a "product" worth reviewing. It was a one-sentence suggestion on the back of a small flimsy card. Mine recommended organizing my book collection on a rainy day -- not exactly mindblowing stuff here. I think the typical Birchbox consumer is looking to try something more exciting than a slogan. If a slogan is what you're marketing, at least print it in such a way that it could be displayed instead of thrown out. Cute and all, but I can't imagine paying money for something like this.
