Jill Dunn and Melissa Granata White think women should treat themselves with a surprise gift regularly—so they cofounded My Blind Bag. Each month they select a few goodies and bundle them up for their subscribers (as well as for one-off purchases). At only $22.50, there’s zero guilt—plus, the value of what’s in the bag is always higher than the fee. The fun of it is not knowing what you’ll get and to think of it as simply a gift, from women to women.

Each month’s kit has its own unique theme, so you are sure to get new delights each time. The February kit, for example, included lip-shaped chocolate wrapped in hot-pink foil and a diamond-shaped necklace. All of the selections were tucked into a cherry-red cloth pouch that is emblazoned with the wise words: “Do everything with love.”

It’s about having fun, staying positive and empowering women to trust that they deserve a treat. Choose a one-, three-, or six-month subscription with free shipping or send one to a friend. What if you don’t like what’s in the bag? No refunds, but you can always re-gift.

If you know someone who might like to try it, use the referral link. Also, Jill and Melissa launched an affiliate program, so anyone with a large network (such as YouTubers, bloggers and influencers) can earn commission for sharing.

“We like to think of our social media pages as a way for us to connect with other women,” says Jill. “Social media posts and personal interactions are ways we get to know the needs and wants of women who order My Blind Bag. We love to engage and respond to questions and comments. Social media gives us instant access to our customers. It also gives them a chance to learn more about us, who we are and that we are relatable, everyday hard-working moms who want to bring joy to other women who are like us.”
