Remember how you were so excited when you were the first to get Birchbox, getting all those surprise beauty treats delivered to your doorstep? Well, we have one better for you. Sure, we still love the big subscription boxes, but are most excited by a new subscription service that delivers products made in the South— specifically, one of our hottest cities.
Just a few months old, BATCH Nashville sends subscribers a box of well-curated Nashville-made goods. Each box contains five items made by artisans in and around The Music City, along with the story behind each product and business.
The product is the brainchild of Sam Davidson, a young Tennessee entrepreneur who got the idea for the business last Christmas as he assembled gift boxes for friends with made-in-Nashville items. When his pals received Sam’s boxes of local treats, they loved them, and he got to thinking.
What if he could harness the burgeoning maker culture of the region, bundling up products from small businesses and shipping them around the world? Sam had his next great idea.
By this fall, BATCH Nashville had shipped their themed boxes to more than 43 states. “We hear a lot from people who grew up in the South, or went to college here and identify with the region, and want to share the products being made here,” he says.
Users (or gifters) can subscribe for one, three, or yearly packages, or just order a single BATCH. Among the themed boxes: “Smell Like A Man Gift Batch,” “Caffeine Lover’s Gift Batch,” and the “Happy Hour” pictured below:
At Southern Living, we enjoyed digging into “The Rise & Shine,” which includes 13 oz. of coffee from Garage Coffee Company, two lbs. of pancake mix from My Friend Who Loves To Cook, 6 oz. of honey from TruBee, and a double serving of oatmeal from Hauling Oates.
Lucky you: We’re giving away a three-month seasonal subscription to their newest offerings, which include December’s (“Santa’s Got A Brand New Batch”), January (“New Adventures”) and February (“Movie Night”). Though the products in the boxes are a surprise, we know they are going to be fantastic.
