How great would it be to have all the essentials you need delivered right to your door? You might not ever need to leave your house!
(You probably should, but it’s a nice thought sometimes, right?)
This dream is a reality with subscription boxes. Subscription boxes are services that deliver customized goods right to your door on a periodic basis. And we don’t just mean groceries, either. You can get almost any type of box: mystery boxes, clothing boxes, chocolate boxes, etc.
These services can make your life a lot easier. You don’t have to worry about browsing hundreds of items yourself to find the best ones. Subscription boxes will deliver quality and customized items right to you!
Here are 9 of the best subscription boxes that will make your life easier.
1. Club W
What makes a tough day or week a little bit easier? A nice glass of wine at the end of the day.
Club W can help you there by keeping your wine fridge stocked with 3 fresh new options each month. You’ll fill out your custom profile indicating what types of wine you like, dislike, and would consider trying.
Then, Club W will send affordable wines that they think you’ll like right to your door. Worried that you’ll get a bottle of what you consider to be swill? No problem: their satisfaction guarantee means you’ll never pay for a bottle you don’t like.
2. Trunk Club
Going shopping is always an ordeal, whether you like the activity or not. Going from store to store, trying on what feels like one million pairs of jeans, returning items that looked good in the mirror in the store but not at home, and finding affordable styles leads to most people wanting to rip their hair out.
Trunk Club cuts down on a lot of that stress. This subscription service employs professional stylists to pick out high fashion clothes for both men and women. You’ll decide the types of clothes you’re looking for, how often you want deliveries, and what your budget is.
You’ll try on all the clothes, keep the ones you like, and send back the ones you don’t want with their easy return service. It’s that simple!
3. Blue Apron
Of all the meal prep subscription services, Blue Apron is our favorite. Blue Apron takes grocery delivery service to the next level: they send pre-measured ingredients to make delicious chef-designed recipes!
Available in 2-person or a 4-person family plan, you can indicate dietary restrictions and preferences, along with how many meals you’d like delivered each week.
Nothing makes life easier or a tough day more manageable than a delicious cup of coffee in the morning. MistoBox sends you 4 high-quality coffee samples that are based directly on your favorite flavors and tastes.
You can get artisan coffee samples from over 30 locations around the world without having to leave your house!
5. Dollar Shave Club
Dollar Shave Club is the perfect subscription box for those on a budget still looking for high-quality and useful products. With the simplest box at just 3 dollars per month, there’s no excuse not to check it out.
With products for both men and women, you can get amazing razors, shaving cream, lotions, shampoo, cleansers, and more.
6. Lavish Bath Box
Speaking of feeling clean and groomed, Lavish Bath Box is perfect for those of us looking to treat ourselves, soothe stressful days, and feel, well, lavish.
Similar to products you’ll find in Lush, Lavish Bath Box will deliver handmade bath bars, soaps, bath bombs, shower gels, body scrubs, and more right to your door. These products are also cruelty-free and vegan. They smell amazing, and they nourish your skin with quality and natural ingredients.
7. Bark Box
Don’t forget about your furry friend this year! Bark Box will send your dog special toys, treats, and grooming products each month. Simply take a short survey about the kind of dog you have, their favorite types of toys and foods, and you and your best friend will be ready for a year of fun.
You know how shopping for clothes can be a hassle? We’d say that shopping for beauty products is just as hard.
You have to try each product to see how it will look and feel on your skin. You have to balance the want for high-end products with the desire to not spend all of your money on make-up.
As with many of the boxes on this list, Ipsy eliminates these issues and takes away the arduous process of finding the products best for you.
For a mere 10 dollars per month, you’ll be shipped some of the best makeup samples on the market. You’ll be able to try each one to see if buying the full-size option is for you. Oftentimes, the sample size will last you months anyway!
You can tailor each delivery to your needs; whether you need mascara, blush, bronzer, or foundation, Ipsy has got you covered. You can also splurge on the retail size bag for 50 dollars per month if you want more than a sample size.
9. Once Upon a Book Club
Last but not least is Once Upon a Book Club. Not many Americans find the time to read, but reading has so many benefits for our health! Make it easier on yourself to pick up a book by having the best and newest options delivered right to your door.
There’s also a kid’s option so the whole family can get into reading this year!
