So, you know how every month Mother Nature graces you with that lovely gift of cramps, bloating, and everything else that comes with your period? A new tampon delivery service, leparcel.com, wishes to make this monthly experience a little better by sending you their own gift.
Here's how it works:
You sign up for their service and let them know the day your period is expected and they type of tampons and/or pads you use. In return, they send you 30 pads/tampons, a special gift, and chocolate. The service costs $15 a month, and is sent on the same day every month.
Their reasons for providing this service?
"Nature's gift stinks, so we give you a better one."
"PMS - Not so hard when chocolate covered."
They want to give you a reason to "look forward to that time of the month".

The pros I see with this: It's always nice to get something cool in the mail. They give you chocolate! And a gift! You don't have to worry about running out to the store because you were ill-prepared for your monthly visitor. And when you're feeling bloated and crampy and depressed because it's that time of the month, this serves as the perfect little pick-me-up.
The cons: Not everyone's cycle runs on the dot. This was set up as a monthly service (every 30 days), but a "regular cycle" is actually 28 days. And not every woman even runs this regularly. They only allow for 30 items - what about us who receive a, um, heavier "gift" from nature? And it's $15. A box of tampons bought at the store costs less than $10.
