A Club W monthly experience starts at 3 bottles a month for $39 + a $6 flat rate shipping. This is a perfect gift for parents, bosses, or yourself! I mean, who doesnt enjoy a bottle of wine?

#4: Dollar Shave Club – $1 to $9 per month with free shipping

As the cheapest subscription on the list, DSC offers two easy options to gift the club: Send lucky recipients a DSC membership or send them an e-gift card. As a member, recipients get a monthly box of fresh razors for up to 12 months. DSC makes a great gift for both men and women, as we all know men’s razors are much better than those offered for women. 

Prices vary depending on blade chosen.

#3: BarkBox – $19 to $29 per month

For those of use who are obsessed with our furry friends and want to give them the best life possible, BarkBox is dedicated to providing all-natural treats, chews, and fun toys designed to create moments of insane joy for dogs. Bark & Co. was created to celebrate the relationship between dogs and their parents; it is also a tremendous gift for anyone in your life that loves their dog like their child. 

Prices vary based on monthly plan.

#2: ipsy – $10 per month with free shipping

YouTube sensation and beauty guru, Michelle Phan, created ipsy as a form to share all of her favorite beauty products with her fans. This monthly subscription is personalized based on a beauty quiz taken when you first begin your profile. Each month, subscribers receive a “Glam Bag” filled with deluxe samples and even some full-sized beauty products. When starting your subscription, you have the option of doing a month-to-month subscription instead of a full or half year, which is ideal for a balling-on-a-budget collegiette.

#1: LOLA – $10 to $18

Last but not least is a subscription to help with those frantic drugstore runs when Aunt Flo comes into town. This monthly or bi-monthly care package, LOLA, delivers a box or two of 18 tampons that can be customized by light, regular and super depending on your preferences. As a subscriber, you decide what date you would like your LOLA box delivered based on your expected period dates. Although it may be slightly more expensive than your regular Target tampons, LOLA offers 100% natural, hypoallergenic cotton tampons with a BPA-free plastic applicator; no chemicals, synthetics or dyes. As surprising as it may sound, not all tampons are made of cotton, most of them are made from artificial fibers like rayon and polyester. As the first 100% cotton tampon with a plastic applicator company, Lola insists on transparency in an industry where the FDA does not require companies to list ingredients. Anna from Lola told us, “LOLA was created with the idea that a woman deserves to know what’s in her tampon, and it should be natural and simple ingredients.”
