Luckily you're likely to find the perfect thing you didn't even know you needed with Lost Crates, a subscription service that delivers design to your doorstep.
Every month you subscribe, you get a package filled with mystery goods based on your interests personally designed by the curators at Lost Crates. The site is simple. First, you explore the crates and choose from their different themes: Eco, Housewares, Foodie, Stationary, Found In___, Jack's Picks, Petite Stationary and Angie's Picks. Then you subscribe to the categories that catch your fancy and anxiously wait for it to arrive.
Monthly or quarterly, you'll receive a crate filled with designer goods. Lost Crates also makes a good gift idea—just pick a category and a creative crate will be on its way to making someone happy.
For a heads up on what to expect in the crates, the website does offer the following hints:
An Eco Crate ($38) is perfect, "If you're passionate about the environment...We enjoy taking the time to find eco-friendly goodies of all kinds, from water bottles, plants, notebooks, etc. and shipping them straight to you."
Choose Housewares ($68) if you, "Want to bring a little design into your home...We'll send you items to spice up your house, from coasters and candles to posters and plants—and of course, each month's items will always complement each other."
Hey, Foodies ($48), are you "Sick of yellow mustard? Some of us just take our love of food to a new level; we live for new recipes, cook-offs and potlucks. These crates will include the foods you love and the accoutrements to serve them beautifully."
If you can't pick a crate because they all look so great, then take the quiz and you'll be set up with the crate that's just right for you (and some pretty sweet alternatives too, just in case). Check out all the Lost Crates at LostCrates.com.
