Birchbox and Beyond

Subscription box services are making a new market for gift-givers and personal gifts to yourself. The options for services are endless. However, keep reading to find the best ones out there!



This is something that I was gifted last year for my birthday and I absolutely loved it! Birchbox has you take a small questionnaire that asks you about your beauty routine, skin type, hair color, eye color, etc. to personalize a perfect box of samples that you receive monthly. The sample sizes are usually fairly large and I received at least 7 in each box ranging from lip stick to hair products. This is one of the cheapest as it only costs $10. However, they don’t sacrifice quality for price. Every single sample I received was from a very good or popular brand. They also make it easy for you to purchase full size products if you like the sample size. Coupons and percentage discounts are also available when you purchase a full size product from their websites.



Flicker Box

This candle subscription box sends you thematically selected candles and sets every month or every other month. The selection ranges from large candles in glass jars to little sets of tea light candles. They send from well-known brands as well as from little boutiques and other shops that sell a variety of different candle products. You are also able to purchase anything you liked from your box at their online store!




Escape Monthly

Escape monthly is like a little vacation in a box! Each box is themed with a specific destination and contains full-size bath, spa, and beauty products as well as gourmet food, treats, jewelry, and other small gifts from that area. Something very unique about this box is that they include a travel book for that specific destination in case you want to plan your own trip inspired by the products you received! This is great for anyone who loves to travel, or wish they could travel more. It’s also an awesome way to experience different things from other countries in the comfort of your own home.




The Cravory

Who doesn’t love getting amazing cookies in the mail? This type of subscription box is perfect for cookie lovers! You have the option of receiving either 6, 12, or 24 gourmet cookies monthly. They also have different types of boxes such as the Adventurous Mix, Best Seller’s Mix, and Flavor of the month. This type of subscription box is also pretty affordable, with the most expensive option being $23.95 per month and the lowest being only $11.95.




Wantable Intimates

This might be my favorite box so far. Wantable Intimates sends you 3 intimate essentials ranging from slippers, robes, and bras that are handpicked by a stylist. They also base it off of a few questions they ask you in the beginning to make sure you love whatever they send. As an added bonus, you can keep what you love and return what you don’t!





Mistobox is perfect for any coffee lover! They build you a profile based on what kind of coffees and flavors you prefer and send you a handcrafted coffee box. The coffees they get are from all over the world and allow you to expand your tastes in coffee. They also schedule the delivery of the boxes based on your consumption habits, so you won’t ever have to worry about running out of coffee again! They’re also fairly affordable, with the lowest price being $12.99 a month.
