Subscription boxes are all the rage lately delivering everything from razors to makeup, and even international snacks to your door every month.

If you live in Alaska, you may like things to be made in Alaska. How about a little piece of the state you call home delivered straight to your door every few months? That's the idea behind the brand new Bear Box.

"If you try it you touch it you taste it, it sticks with you and that is very significant to our generation who is used to that instant gratification," says Leeanna Chronister, founder of The Bear Box.

She says the idea behind subscription boxes is not a new concept.

"Before, a lot of people subscribed to magazines and stuff like that where you were getting ads and stuff like that at you all the time anyway. This is just kind of more of a hands-on, “says Chronister.

Her box contains everything from art to edible treats, all uniquely handcrafted and selected to send a little piece of Alaska anywhere you go.

"We have a weirdly high number of people in Florida buying our box," says Chronister.

The Bear Box is Alaska’s very own subscription box designed for locals and those in the lower 48 to sample products from stores they may never encounter. All of the products are made in Alaska and The Bear Box encourages customers to continue to purchase the products from each of the vendors directly.

“We've got companies in here that have been around for over a decade sometimes and nobody knows that they are around unless you have like stumbled across them,” says Chronister.

Each box contains over $50 worth of Alaskan made products and costs $45 every quarter.
