Celebrate style this holiday season with the award-winning Simply Beautiful subscription box
Curated by the editorial team at BCLiving, Simply Beautiful has become not just the single most popular subscription box in Canada, but also a two-time award winner in the annual Canadian Subscription Box Awards, hosted by A Year of Boxes. In August, Simply Beautiful was heralded as the Best Overall Subscription Box in the country for 2020, following on the heels of a 2019 win for Best Women’s Lifestyle Box. And it couldn’t be easier to order! Subscribe online for someone you love and it will be the gift that keeps on giving this year.
Check out all of the reasons this #editorsbox is the perfect holiday gift for 2020…
As a part of daily editorial prep and planning, editors for BCLiving test, literally, thousands of products each year. From personal grooming to cosmetics to home decor, the samples arrive on a regular basis. Who better then to recommend the cream of the crop? With hours of poking, prodding and applying a keen (and sometimes skeptical!) eye, the team continues to strive to find the latest and greatest. A focus on innovation and modernity as well—naturally—style is paramount.
Plus, with COVID and associated travel restrictions top of mind this year, Simply Beautiful makes the perfect gift-giving option. Subscribe now and have the collection delivered to loved ones far and near that you are unable to visit with in person this year. Just because you can’t be sitting next to the tree doesn’t mean you can’t have something joyful wrapped up and placed underneath!
The full retail value of Simply Beautiful collections are often astounding. In summer 2020, eight special items amassed a retail total of $280 CDN. For a seasonal price tag of $108, it represents a fantastic opportunity to experience new brands without the financial risk. Trusted experts recommend finds they stand behind, and your pocketbook benefits.
As an added bonus, Simply Beautiful subscribers are also privy to seasonal add-ons—sometimes at up to 75 percent off the retail price. “Make It Yours” customization offers abound, and exclusive coupon codes are also a huge—and repeat—benefit when subscribing to Simply Beautiful.
Supporting local has become more important than ever. While editors are always looking for fantastic finds from far and wide, the majority of Simply Beautiful picks are either designed or manufactured exclusively in Canada.
From award-winning beauty brands like Huna Skin to innovative homegrown collectives like Evio, a clear emphasis on Canuck talent shines through in each collection. Our spotlight has been brightly beaming most recently on Vancouver-based makeup enthusiasts Evalina Beauty and many more!

As a respected online voice for subscription box fans and devotees across North America, Kelowna-based A Year of Boxes boasts a dedicated base of followers well-versed in subscription services on both sides of the 49th parallel. For the second year in a row, users voted during a two-week period to select favourites in over two dozen categories—and Simply Beautiful came out on top. Voted Best Women’s Lifestyle Box in 2019, Simply Beautiful notched up one and claimed the Best Overall Box honour in August 2020. (The men’s version of the box, Extraordinary Man, took home the Best Men’s Lifestyle Box honour.)
The laid-back nature of Canada’s West Coast has undoubtedly influenced the region’s dedication to sustainable and ethical purchasing decisions. Simply Beautiful curators keep this in mind with their selections each season. Not just for subscribers, but because they want products to represent shared values and ethics.
From cruelty-free cosmetics from Scentuals to charitable styling products from AG Hair to stylish vegan leather accessories from Lark & Ives, the products in Simply Beautiful reflect what British Columbians, Canadians and the editorial team hold dear.
