Awesome Subscription Boxes: Perfect for Gifting or Treating Yourself!

You can get everything from beer to butterflies, and unique Japanese candies delivered right to your doorstep! They make great last-minute gifts, too!

Even before 2020 hit, I was a bit of an online shopping addict. If it meant I didn’t have to go to a store, I was SOLD. (I really hate in-store shopping!) So, this post will include several things that I have delivered to my home, personally, as well as some that I am looking into… or just thought was a fun idea!

I hope you enjoy this list. In the comments section at the end of the post, I would love to hear some of your favorites that I may have missed!

Fun Delivery & Online Subscription Services to Try or Give as Gifts


Self-care boxes 

Nothing is more important than carving out a little “me” time. Pour yourself a bubble bath or wine or both, and try some fabulous destressing products for your body and mind. 

If you’re interested in a monthly subscription service, Crate Joy has just about every monthly self-care subscription box under the sun to choose from.

Or I also recommend Annmarie Skin Care, if you would rather do a one-time, self-care box. I have their “Recharge & Relax Bundle” and have been using it for a couple months now. It is divine! 


15 Fun Delivery & Online Subscription Services to Try While You're Stuck at Home

Wine Subscription Box

While we’re talking about self-care, I firmly believe a glass of wine falls into that category! And there are services out there that will deliver wine right to your doorstep.

Winc is a flexible monthly subscription service that sends you wine based on your taste. Or you can simply order your favorites if you already know what they are. If not, they have a fun wine quiz you can take to figure out your palette!


Beer Delivery - 15 Fun Delivery & Online Subscription Services to Try While You're Stuck at Home

Beer Subscription Box

More of a beer fan? (Me too!) Don’t worry there are beer delivery services too! I’ve personally used Beer of the Month Club and really enjoyed it! They send you 12 beers from craft breweries all across the United States.


tea subscription

Tea / Coffee / Kombucha Subscription 

But alcohol doesn’t have to be the only beverage that gets all the glory! You can also get delectable tea and coffee boxes delivered right to your door. 

Simple Loose Leaf Tea will send you four different bags of loose-leaf tea each month! And with Bean Box, you can get a single bag of unique coffee or a sampler box (from tons of different brews)! Amazon also has TONS of individual tea and coffee choices if you would rather not do a subscription.

Another fun beverage is Kombucha! Kombucha is a fermented, black, or green tea drink that has loads of probiotics. I, personally, order my Kombucha from and recommend Health-Ade. It’s also a great alternative option to have to alcohol.


Cooking Kit Subscription

It’s great to order takeout and delivery. However, you won’t want to eat delivery or takeout every night. That’s where cooking kit subscriptions can be a fun change of pace!

I’ve tried a couple now. My personal favorite is HelloFresh, and the photos above are few of my recent favorite meals. The recipes are simple, unique and take less than 30 minutes on average. The food is always fresh too! 

I’ve also tried EveryPlate – which is a more affordable option. However, I didn’t care for it as much. The recipes weren’t as healthy or as exciting to me (just personal preference). The price was considerably reduced, though. 

And Freshly is a good option if you don’t want to cook at all. They send healthy premade meals that only require you to microwave them. I do really like these meals if I don’t feel like cooking or only want a quick lunch. I love their sausage & pesto fusilli and buffalo chicken!


Bokksu 'Snowy Hokkaido' subscription box
Japanese Candy & Snack Boxes 

Bokksu is an interesting service that does monthly subscriptions of Japanese candy and goodies! You can also order individual Japanese snacks and candy if you’d rather not do the monthly box. (I had to order myself some Green Tea Kit Kats… I crave them ALL the time. They are SO good.)  

Amazon also has a lot of unique Japanese snacks to choose from too!


Try the World

Try the World is also a subscription box service that caters to those who want to try food from around the globe, without ever leaving the comfort of their house. It’s made for those who want to experience and enjoy a culinary adventure. Each month, Try the World delivers a unique assortment of products from different countries right to your doorstep. These items are sourced from their originating countries, and the brand makes an effort to work with small, family-owned companies that follow traditional, sustainable, and artisanal production methods. Whether you’re a well-traveled foodie or simply curious about international flavors, Try the World allows you to explore the world through food without needing a plane ticket!


The Plant Club

Plant Boxes

I think this is SO cool. The Plant Club delivers a new plant to your door each month along with cute pots & accessories! These are mainly house plants. If you’re looking for more of the garden variety, there are TONS of subscriptions for gardeners too.


Barkbox – Dog Toys and Treats!

You can get some fun stuff for your furry friend, too! Every BarkBox has 2 innovative toys, 2 all-natural bags of treats, and a chew, curated from each month’s unique themed collection.

If you’re looking to easily get your pup or ANY pet in your house some fun items delivered, I personally like ordering from Petco and Chewy, I go a little crazy on here for Miss Kitty!


Explore Local Box

Explore Local Box

This is a great subscription for someone who enjoys traveling. Each month a new city is explored through locally made food and products delivered right to your door via Explore Local. I love this idea!  


Insect Lore Box

Perfect gift idea for your kiddos! There are tons of services that will deliver live caterpillars, habitats, and supplies for your kiddos to take care of the caterpillars while they turn into butterflies! My parents had nearly this exact kit for me from Insect Lore when I was growing up, and I LOVED it. I thought it was the coolest thing ever!


book of the month club

Book of the Month Club 

Book of the Month Club delivers books to your doorstep each month. They feature 5 new books each month—with an emphasis on early releases, fresh perspectives, and debut authors. Then you pick which one sounds the most interesting to you. If you decide you don’t want a new book one month, you can simply skip it. It’s a fun way to discover new books and get motivated to read! My friend, Shannon, does this one and lends me her books that she likes. (I should probably get my own subscription!) This is how I ended up reading A Gentleman in Moscow and The Age of Light. (New fave books!) 


Wickbox – Luxury Candle Delivery

With Wickbox subscription service, you will receive a large or medium luxury candle that is expertly curated to match your unique scent preferences every month.  Each month features a different brand and a beautiful container that goes with the season.  

There are also some amazing luxury candles on Etsy, if you would rather not have a monthly subscription. 


Rosetta Stone 

Rosetta Stone is a monthly language software subscription that teaches you a new language!  It’s also free for students in K-12. (I’m currently using it to brush up on Spanish while I’m home.)

  1. These are such fun ideas, especially for now. I want to do a wine subscription after Scarlett is here.

  2. these are such great ideas Lindsey. We use Winc (and have for years). If you want to try them, I even have a code for $22 off your first box. This is definitely the time to embrace these boxes since you can’t go to the stores.

    1. That is awesome to know, Jodie! My friend, Shannon, also uses it and said it’s great! I’m glad there is so much good feedback on it. I might have to take you up on that $22 code. I’ll send you an email. Thank you!
