5 Subscription Boxes You Need to Check Out

Signing up for a subscription box is basically sending yourself a gift each month – who wouldn’t want in? With tons of awesome products for a reasonable price, I find that subscription boxes are totally worth the investment. With a wide variety – from food to makeup to clothing – there is definitely something for everyone! That’s why I decided to share the best subscription boxes perfect for us college students.

1. For the beauty guru

If you’re looking for quality makeup, fragrances, haircare and skincare products, Birchbox is the subscription for you. Once you sign up, you have the option to fill out a profile all about your beauty preferences. From there, experts customize a perfect box with tons of sample size products based on your personalized taste! There are lots of different subscription options, like $10/month, $60/6-month, and $110/year, and all have free shipping. The latest and coolest beauty trends get shipped right to your door with just the click of a button – what more could you ask for?

2. For the ultimate snacker

Graze is hands-down the best subscription for foodies who want to try out new snacks! It allows you to customize a snack box that gets sent to you every two weeks. Essentially, you get to choose eight different types of snacks at $13.99 per box (the first box is half off!). The website is super organized and they even have sections based on dietary needs, allowing customers to find what they want easily. They have savory, sweet, salty, and everything in between, making for generally healthy snacks that are perfectly portioned.

3. For the girl who wants it all

Look no further for the all-you-can-need subscription! Unibox focuses on making a variety of boxes based on what college students need. You can choose from delicious treats, fun and useful items, exam survival, festive spirit, and tons more. Pretty much anything you could ever want can come inside these Uniboxes. They surprise you with goodies like treats, magazines, fuzzy socks, and health products to keep you motivated throughout the school year. Prices vary based on your location and how often you want to receive boxes.

4. For the coffee drinker

For most tired, sleep-deprived college students, coffee is a must throughout the day, which is why I recommend checking out the Atlas Coffee Club. If you sign up, you get access to high-quality coffee based on your personal preferences. You get to choose the roast (light, medium, dark, or a mix), grind type (whole or ground beans), how many bags you get (half, single, or double bag), and how often you receive them (every two or four weeks). Their coffee even comes from Kenya, Brazil and Ethiopia – move over chain-store coffee! 

5. For the trend setter

FabFitFun boxes are jam-packed with a variety of amazing beauty, fashion, and fitness products. This is a fun subscription opportunity because you get to select what you want or you can be surprised. Each box is $49.99 for a $200 value and you get four boxes per year, each with 8-10 products. You can choose from jewelry, makeup, face masks, nail polish, gym necessities, vitamins, and so much more. Just writing about it makes me want to sign up!
