Become a Contributor
Each month, Five Senses* will be collaborating with small businesses to provide a selection of products to our subscription box customers. initially, this idea originated from my 'Green Cat Books Bookworm Club', and products were to be based around accessories to complement books. This is still the case, but will also be based on our five senses; sound, sight, touch, smell and taste, focussing on Hygge (pronounced hoo-guh), a Scandinavian concept which literally translates as 'cosy', and we will be constantly looking for new products to keep the boxes fresh and unique. We will also have a product from a 'guest contributor' with items that complement books, such as bookmarks, for example. We are keen to keep these items as ethical and eco-friendly as possible, both with the products and their packaging. With this in mind, we are inviting small businesses to provide a proposal for products that they would like to contribute.
In the first instance we would need to know the products you are nominating along with the quantity of products that you can supply within the timescales, their rrp and wholesale costs. We would be looking to purchase items at the wholesale price that you offer, if successful, approximately 10 days before boxes are assembled. They would then need to be shipped to us, to arrive approximately 5 working days before 1st of each month, at the contributor's own cost.
In return, we will be producing a small booklet which will be included in every box, with a page dedicated to each of the monthly contributors along with contact details for further orders from your range.
Please feel free to think 'outside the box' with the categories;
sound - mediation music, inspirational podcasts
sight - books, exclusive prints, notelets
taste - small bite-size treats (including healthy treats)
touch - textured items such as silky scarves, fluffy socks, but also skin products like soap, body creams, bath salts
smells - soaps, bubble baths, essential oils
We will be catering for men, women and children, so products that fit into these gender-specific categories are welcomed.
If you have suitable products but can't meet the high demand (personalisation for example) then you can advertise in the booklets instead for a small charge.
To register your interest and submit a proposal, please complete the form below. This is not a commitment from either party.
