Jigar Vora, founder, Scriberr — an aggregator platform that offers an array of subscription boxes catering to various interests, from pets to personal hygiene — tells us that during the lockdown, he’s seen a spike in people opting for quarterly or six-month subscriptions, as opposed to one-time buys. “Due to the pandemic, people want to avoid going out and stay home, which is possibly leading to this trend. Food and personal hygiene sectors have seen maximum rise,” shares Vora. He adds that they have a range of boxes for healthy snacking, like flavoured chickpeas, BBQ beetroot chips, wasabi makhana, among others, and customised diabetes plans.

Keeping kids engaged during the lockdown is no child’s play. Subscription boxes by Anand-based Scotty’s Wanderquest take the young ones on a journey with Scotty, the tortoise. Founder Shruti Agrawal shares the contents are aimed to engage kids between seven to 12. “Each box is themed on a country with maps, books, activity sheets, and craft material. There are clues for a treasure hunt, too, for some plans.” The latest one on Australia had instructions on how to make a boomerang and crystal coral reefs among other things.
