Though Christmas only comes once a year, getting a highly anticipated package in the mail definitely feels like a mini holiday. This feeling of excitement can be amplified even more when you’re not completely sure what you’re going to see when you open the box. I’m talking of course about subscription boxes! Several people pay a fixed price for a set period of time to receive a box full of appropriately themed items, but the contents are not exposed until the receiver finally takes a peek inside. With all the different types of subscription boxes out there, I thought to make a list of eight that you may not have known existed. You might find your perfect subscription box underneath!
- Beauteque (Category: Beauty)
Price: $24 a month for the BeautyBox / $15 a month for the MaskHaven
Beauteuqe Monthly offers Korean skincare right to your front door. Two different types of subscription boxes are offered at different prices. One of them is the BeautyBox subscription and the other is the MaskHaven subscription. BeautyBox includes full-sized Korean skincare and makeup, with some never-before-seen products. MaskHaven subscription box includes several types of face masks for shoppers to use and have fun with all month long.
- Try the World (Category: Food)
“Try the World” is a subscription box that brings flavors from around the world to your kitchen. Each box contains seven or eight international treats. Some items that members can receive are foods, drinks, tea, cooking ingredients, and snacks. If you have a passion for cooking, or eating, then this subscription box would be great for you. Try the World is a great and affordable way to travel the world.
- Rose War (Category: Feminine Health)
Ladies, I think we can all agree that receiving a gift during that time of the month is greatly appreciated. Well that’s exactly what Rose War brings its subscription members. Items that can appear in your subscription box include essential items for that special time of the month, such as pads and tampons. However, there are also three to six additional gifts inside each box that can be anything from skincare to jewelry!
- Shaker & Spoon (Category: Cocktails)
The Shaker & Spoon subscription box is great for those who enjoy creating delicious drinks for guests or themselves. This subscription box includes all the ingredients you’ll need, aside from the alcohol, to make amazing drinks all by yourself. Some of these items are syrups, mixers, and garnishes. Each box comes with a welcome card, three recipe cards, and a glossary card to explain bartending terms. With the help of Shaker & Spoon, you’ll be ready to create drinks great enough to serve at a bar.
- Bulu Box (Category: Fitness)
Bulu Box is a subscription box centered around fitness, health, and nutrition. The two types of boxes that are offered are the original Bulu Box and the Weight Loss Box. There are four to five samples in each of these boxes, and the types of samples range from healthy snacks to lifestyle products. Signing up for Bulu Box is an amazing way to become healthier for less.
- Mighty Fix (Category: Home)
The main objective of MightyFix is to help their members make one healthy change in their home each month. Those who subscribe to MightyFix receive one new item that retails for about $10 a month. The item received is promised to contribute to a healthier and more eco-friendly environment in your home as well as the world.
