The Best Subscription Boxes To Gift (Or To Keep For Yourself)

What’s better than getting a gift? Getting multiple gifts all year round. Subscription boxes are the best bet. They make for excellent holiday gifts and are even better ways to treat yourself every month.

As subscription boxes have gained more popularity, there has been one for almost everything. (A company called Parasol Co even has one for diapers). Here, we round up some of the best ones.



For the Healthy Snacker: Graze Box

Graze | $13.99 per month

For a penny under $14 per month, Graze sends you 8 healthy snacks packs each month. This subscription box has been huge in Britain since it was founded in 2008 and only made its way over to the United States a few years ago. This box is mostly aimed at foodies who prefer to stick to wholesome munchies. Probably the best part about this box is that you can choose to either customize the box “theme” (snacks with a focus on protein for example) or you can let them surprise you with their own selection.

Barkbox | $20 per month

Barkbox is the most popular monthly dog box out there. After launching in 2011, Barkbox caught on quickly partly because it eliminates the extra errand of having to shop for your dog every month. A typical box comes with 2 toys, 2 bags of treats, and 2 meaty chews. That pretty much covers all of the your monthly bases. To top it off, 10% of what they make is donated to rescue missions.

For The Girl Who Loves Everything: FabFitFun Box

FabFitFun Box | $49 per box (ships quarterly)

The FabFitFun box has a little of everything, making it a great gift for anyone on your holiday gift list. From health and wellness products to makeup to chic accessories, each box provides you with everything you need for the season ahead. Plus, unlike a lot of subscription boxes out there, all the products are full-size. These boxes are definitely worth the money. (You can get it here)

 For The Fashionista: The Zoe Report Box of Style

The Zoe Report Box of Style | $99 per box (ships quarterly)

Curated by the one and only Rachel Zoe, the Box Of Style is perfect for the fashion lover in your life. Filled with swoon-worthy fashion, beauty and lifestyle products, the Box of Style ships quarterly and features truly luxe items—items from the winter box include a faux fur stole, liquid liner, and earrings. You’ll be living your most glam life in 2018.

For The Empowered Lady: EBY

EBY | $48 for 3 pairs (ships quarterly)

EBY, or “Empowered By You” is the brainchild of Sofia Vergara and Renata Black. This subscription service will send cute and comfortable seamless underwear straight to your door—in styles and hues you get to pick out. Not only do the styles look great on all women, but EBY donates 10% of their net sales to the Seven Bar Foundation, which helps women break the poverty cycle and start their own businesses. This is the perfect gift not only for someone on your shopping list, but for the women who are empowered through EBY’s donations.

For The Beauty Beginner: Birchbox 

Birchbox | $10 per month

If you’re not sure where to even begin when it comes to beauty products, Birchbox is the perfect subscription box! For only $10 a month, you’ll receive 5 beauty samples so you can test out different hair and makeup products and discover the items you love. Birchbox customizes their beauty picks for customers based on hair type, skin type, and so on, further tailoring the experience and taking out all the stress of trying new makeup products.

For The Life Of The Party: Saloon Box DIY Cocktail Kit

Saloon Box | $37 per month

Expand your cocktail repertoire with Saloon Box! Each month, this boozy subscription box will deliver precisely-measured ingredients, top shelf liquors in sample sizes, and recipe cards for inventive cocktails, each one created by a different mixologist. In no time, you’ll become an at-home bartending pro, and you’ll have so much fun learning new tricks and recipes.

For The Etsy Lover: Quirky Crate

Quirky Crate | $35 per month

Just like the name suggests, Quirky Crate is for the girl who marches to the beat of her own drum. This monthly box is filled with cute accessories, from pins made by independent artists to adorable novelty purses. If you’re shopping for someone who loves to stand out from the crowd and is always discovering the coolest artists on Etsy, Quirky Crate will be their new favorite.

For The Growing Tot: Monti Kids

Monti Kids | $297 per quarter

Kids need subscription services too! Based on the Montessori method, Monti Kids delivers wooden toys that are safe for children under 3 to use and stimulate their developmental growth. Every three months, Monti Kids will send out a new level of toys as the child learns and grows. An added feature that I love: once a child outgrows their old Monti Kids toys, you have the option of donating them to underserved children.

For The Beauty Junkie: Ipsy Glam Bag

Ipsy Glam Bag| $10 per month

Ipsy’s monthly glam bag is great because of how customizable it is. When you sign up, you not only answer questions about your skin, hair, and eye coloring, but you also answer questions about your favorite skincare and makeup products, the brands you want to try, and the beauty products you naturally gravitate towards. That way each month you get a perfectly customized bag full of both items you already love and ones you’ve been dying to test out.

For The Boss: Sparkle Hustle Grow

Sparkle Hustle Grow Box| $39 per month

Sparkle Hustle Grow creates a new box each month, all filled with books, stationery supplies, accessories, and more. Each product is included to help you on your way to have a more successful career. I personally love the books they feature, as they’re always full of great advice for both business and life.

For The Wine Aficionado:  Winc


Winc Wine Subscription| starting at $13 per bottle

Looking to expand your wine vocabulary? Winc may be just the thing! Fill out a quick flavor profile quiz and Winc will send you wine recommendations each month based on those flavor preferences. You can also buy one-time gifts—like the above champagne and gummy bear pairing—so you have plenty of options for gifting this holiday season.
