Mystery Box Business Idea

    Just looking for everyone's thoughts.
    SEMrush
    I want to set up a new eCommerce website, I was thinking of creating something like this website: https://www.mysteryboxgifts.co.uk/
    I thought it would be a good idea as you can literally put anything in the boxes to sell and they make good gifts.

    Do people still buy these Mystery boxes and are they still popular?

    That's a thing? Good grief. It's worse than giving a voucher.

    As with all business ideas. Do a business plan. Work out how you will succeed and what you'll do differently to your competitors

    I
    I see people buying and doing a vlog on opening the mystery box, so it's a thing.
    But I wonder how you'll differentiate yourself, who your target audience is, and how LONG this can be sustained.
