If you're like me and love surprises, then you will love subscription boxes! Instead of waiting for a holiday or birthday to get surprised with a gift, you can sign up for different kinds of monthly subscription boxes that will send you a mystery box filled with your favorite things! Depending on your likes and needs, there is a subscription service out there that can introduce you to new foods, makeup, or even clothes. Don't worry, the majority of these services let you cancel at any time or you can even buy on a month to month basis so there's no commitment.
First up on our list of amazing subscription boxes is KLUTCHclub! KLUTCHclub is a monthly subscription service that sends a hand-picked and “themed” box of holistic health, fitness and wellness products right to your door! These include organic protein bars, workout wear, skincare products, teas, etc. Subscribers learn about new brands and products that suit their lifestyles, and get access to exclusive deals and offers from companies that share their values. Each box is promised to be filled with $50+ of products, but only costs subscribers $17 a month!
2 My Cotton Bunny
What could be better than getting a surprise gift during "that time of the month" to lift your spirits as well as help you out? Well, that's what My Cotton Bunny does! My Cotton Bunny is a monthly subscription service that bundles your choice of feminine hygiene products with a few extra goodies to get you through your cycle. This monthly subscription is especially great because it includes a full sized box of your desired feminine product so you are never caught "unprepared"!
3 Whimsey Box
Whimseybox is a DIY lover's dream by bringing you the best designed projects and best materials directly to your doorstop for $15 a month! You can choose to follow the instructions included precisely or give the project your own spin! Afterwards, you can share your DIY project with the Whimseybox community and see what other Whimseyboxers are making to help you get inspired by thousands of DIY projects posted in the community.
With Birchbox, you will receive a selection of high-end samples from both well-known brands and emerging gems, plus there is both a women's and a men's option to choose from. The women’s subscription includes everything from skincare to makeup, as well as fun non-beauty extras, while the men’s subscription delivers high-end grooming products in addition to lifestyle accessories ranging from hip socks to tech accessories.

5 Love with Food
Every month, Love With Food members will receive a box of unique, hard-to-find tasty bites which vary based on seasonal themes. You can earn points by leaving reviews and enjoy exclusive discounts for full-sized products that are featured in your box. You can also use your points to buy products for free! Best of all, for every box sold, they donate a meal to several food banks to help end childhood hunger.
For all you pet lovers out there, there are a bunch of pet subscription boxes available. My personal favorite, though, is Pawalla. Pawalla is a subscription box service for both dogs or cats with two different size options to choose from. The deluxe box is $30 a month with 7-9 products, or there's the mini box which is $20 a month with 4-5 products, and both are cheaper if you buy more months up-front. The products include treats, toys, supplements, wet food, and are chosen based on your pet's current weight and age, so they are tailored to fit your dog or cat's needs.
7 Craft Coffee
Calling all caffeine addicts, you can now get coffee delivered right to your door every month! Craft Coffee brings you coffees from dozens of different roasters with a high focus on quality delicious blends. With a $24.99 monthly Craft Coffee subscription, each month you receive coffees from 3 different roasters to try. You can even choose between whole bean, french press, flat bottom filter, or cone filter beans.
8 Nature Box
NatureBox is a monthly subscription box whose goal is to help people eat healthier and live better! Each box carries a unique theme and has unique, tasty, and healthy snacks that have been taste tested and nutritionist approved. Beyond the healthy snacks, NatureBox also provides helpful content on various nutritional topics to help guide you throughout the day. Each NatureBox costs just $19.95 and your monthly box always ships free.
9 Loot Crate
There seems to be a subscription box for just about everyone, including us geek and gamer ladies! Loot Crate contains 6-8 hand-picked products that revolve around a mystery theme which is announced on their social media sites 2 weeks before the box is shipped. Also, every month, one subscriber is randomly chosen to receive a "Mega Crate," which is much larger and cooler than a regular one. Many subscribers post “unboxing videos” so you can look through some of the past boxes before you subscribe. A monthly subscription is $19.37 per month including shipping, but you can save money by paying for several months at once!
10 Conscious Box
This is a great subscription box for anyone who practices a gluten-free or vegan diet (as well as people who are trying to eat "all-natural"). Although there is a classic option for anyone who doesn't have a special diet restriction, there are also separate gluten-free and vegan subscription boxes to choose from. Each box is only $19.95 a month and is filled with both foods and beauty products that are earth-friendly, organic, natural, and either gluten-free or animal friendly!
11 Unmentionably Cheeky
Last but not least, monthly undies! Unmentionably Cheeky is a women’s underwear subscription service created by a husband-wife team. Your first month is only $8 (free shipping) and you get 3 pairs of fun, flirty, and feminine undies! Even after the first month, when the cost becomes $11, it's still a really great deal for 3 pairs of really cute panties! Undies definitely get worn out fast so it's nice knowing you can get a new pair monthly!
Monthly subscription boxes are great for yourself or even as a gift! Usually the more months you subscribe to in advance, the bigger your discount. Plus, many of these boxes contain products that equal more money than you paid! It's also a great way to try some new products you wouldn't normally buy for yourself! Have you ever subscribed to a box service? Do you like them or would you rather shop yourself?
