Subscription boxes are both a fun gift for others, as well as a fun gift for yourself. But not all subscription boxes are equal.
Yes, you have subscription boxes catered to just about every need or interest out there, but subscription boxes can also really range in terms of value, cost, frequency and other factors.
If you’re looking for a subscription service for yourself or a favorite woman in your life, consider one of these 22 best subscription boxes for women.
Best Subscription Boxes for Plant Mommas
Love plants? Love buying plants, more specifically? Whether your house looks like an indoor rainforest or you’re more known for cultivating and then accidentally killing your favorite plant of the week, if you love plants, The Sill is for you.
The Sill offers you a new plant in its own planter, delivered every single month, starting at just $35 per month. Subscriptions come as three-month commitments at one time, and you can choose a subscription that fits your needs — pet-friendly, low light or best for beginners.
Maybe you have caring for your own plants covered, but you’d love to have more fresh blooms throughout your home — including fresh flowers that are expensive or inconvenient to grow yourself, so require you to go out to a farmers market or florist.
Then you need a Bouqs flower subscription. You can choose from a wide variety of subscription options, starting at $52, for weekly, biweekly, monthly or bimonthly bouquets shipped to your home. You can opt just to have fresh roses delivered on the regular, or pick a bouquet style, from classic to seasonal to farmers market picks.
Opt for Horti, where the subscription boxes (starting at $22 per month) feature only hard-to-kill houseplants. The brand starts you off with the absolute easiest-to-care-for plants in your first box, and then gradually works you up to other, more sophisticated plants, based on your success (or lack thereof).
Each plant comes with its own terracotta pot and saucer, in a color of your choosing to match your home and personal style.
Best Subscription Boxes for Fashionable Women
So, not all fashionistas will love this clothing subscription box, but those with a sense of humor certainly will. Smartass and Sass delivers a monthly box, for just $14, and it’s filled with fun, punny and totally smartass items.
If you buy just the basic subscription, you’ll get a shirt with some sort of witty saying on the front (and the shirts all come from small business owners, too, which is nice). If you upgrade to an expanded subscription, you’ll get extra goodies ranging from socks to accessories.
You already know Stitch Fix. This fashion subscription box brand has been around for ages, but for a good reason — it provides excellent service and items in each box.
For the uninitiated, Stitch Fix basically works like this.
You pay a $20 styling fee, and then Stitch Fix sends you a box of five clothing items, based on an extensive style quiz that you fill out when you sign up. Then, you only buy the items in your box that you want, but if you buy all the items delivered, you receive a 25% discount on the clothing.
This box is also nice because you don’t technically have to sign up for a full subscription to enjoy the perks. You can get boxes delivered just as you want them or on a monthly or quarterly basis.
Another fashion box that’s been around for a while, Box of Style is on the pricier side, but it offers high-end clothing items curated by a Hollywood fashion icon and stylist, Rachel Zoe.
With subscriptions starting at $100, you can find each seasonal box filled with unique fashion items, from handbags to earrings, sarongs to skin and hair care products.
If your fashion tastes trend more toward jewelry than clothing or beauty products, then you may enjoy Rocksbox. Starting at $21 per month, this subscription sends you three designer jewelry pieces in each box, and you get to keep them or swap them out at any time. (However, do note that you do technically have to return each item at some point in order to get a new one; if you want to keep a piece long-term, you’ll have to buy it separately.)
Each box is different and comes suited to your particular jewelry preferences and personal style.
Fashion subscription boxes don’t end there. Beyond clothing, jewelry and makeup, you can also enjoy a subscription box filled with pretty women’s undergarments and lingerie to make each day a little more special, regardless of if you’re only wearing an old t-shirt and sweats on the outside.
The Elite by Adore Me box is similar to Stitch Fix, in that the brand sends you items based on your sizing and preferences to try on and try out, and then if you like what they send, you can buy it separately, at a discount.
Best Subscription Boxes for Makeup Lovers
Each month or season, you’ll receive a box of sample products, featuring products from across Target’s most popular brands. Each box is just $7, and there’s no commitment required, so you can buy them when and if you want them.
Birchbox is another highly popular fashion and makeup subscription box brand. Pick your subscription based on your skin type and beauty needs.
Then enjoy the affordable boxes (starting at $15) shipped to your home, each filled with top and new items from favorite skincare and beauty brands, like Living Proof, Kiehl’s, Benefit Cosmetics and others.
A similar makeup and beauty subscription box, Boxy Charm offers subscriptions starting at $25, and each box includes at least $125 worth of products.
Rather than receiving sample-size items, you get five, full-size products, from top beauty brands, exactly like what you’ll find at Sephora or Ulta (think Tatcha, Tarte and Glamglow).
Similarly, options like Ipsy’s Deluxe Glambag, Scentbird or Glossybox are excellent choices as well.
Best Subscription Boxes for Women Who Like to Drink
Get your wine delivered, with Winc. Take a fun quiz before choosing your subscription and then receive a box of wines on a regular basis from partner vineyards, all wines suited to your particular likes and dislikes.
Subscriptions start at $39, but when you consider that you’ll be getting approximately four bottles of wine each time, that’s definitely not expensive.
Do you consider yourself the wine pro among your friends? Then you can appreciate Firstleaf Wine Club’s wide variety of high-end wines from around the world.
Like with Winc, you fill out a survey so the brand can find wines to suit your tastes, then you’ll receive a box of that wine every month, two months or three months, with bottles coming out at an astounding cost of $5 per bottle.
Each month, the box highlights two breweries from different areas and gives you three beers in four different styles, so if you find something you like, you’re not disappointed to only have one bottle or can.
Best Subscription Boxes for Healthy Women
Take care of your beauty needs, inside and out, with FabFitFun’s seasonal lifestyle subscription.
Each quarter, you’ll receive top picks and trendy items, ranging from beauty products to wellness products to skincare products — all items guaranteed to be either fab, fit or fun, of course.
The brand promises each curated box will contain a minimum of $200 in products, which is a steal considering the box itself is just $50. You can even choose some of the products that come in your quarterly box, with seasonal subscribers allowed to choose three of their items and annual subscribers allowed to choose five of their items.
Recent boxes have included skin scrubs, facial masks, cozy slippers, mental health journals and other items.
While Mouth is a great subscription option for anyone who loves to eat, it’s particularly suited to those women who love to snack in a health-conscious manner.
Mouth offers a great box of snacks delivered to your door on a regular basis, including a wide range of snacks that are all vegan-friendly and healthful.
Recent boxes have included items like almond butter, rosemary and olive oil popcorn, a more healthy take on Swedish Fish, granola and more.
It’s like your therapist created a monthly box intended to help you just chill out and focus on your wellbeing. Therabox offers therapist-curated products that are meant to relieve stress, increase joy and help you work through your more negative emotions.
The monthly subscriptions start at $35, and products have included aromatherapy candles, journals, skincare products, face masks, tea and other self-care items.
Subscription options allow you to receive one top and one bottom per month; one top, one bra and one bottom per month; or one top, one bra, one bottom and two accessories or other fitness-related items per month. Those fitness-related items might be a foam roller, fitness band or an activewear bag, among other options.
If your fitness interests are primarily focused on yoga, then you might want to skip Ellie and go straight for YogaClub.
Take a quiz and then start receiving yoga-centric workout pieces from brands that know yoga best, such as Beyond Yoga, Manduka and Splendid.
You can choose a monthly membership or a quarterly membership, and each box includes three pieces. The monthly membership is $79 per month, while the quarterly membership is $89 for each box.

Best Subscriptions Boxes for Women Who Need a Hobby
You start by making a profile that tells the brand all about your favorite outdoor and adventure activities. Then they send you a surprise box every month, filled with items designed to make those adventures more convenient, or to introduce you to new ones. Expect items like beginner gear, apparel, snacks, skincare or outdoorsy tools such as a rock-climbing rope or a waterproof hiking bag.
If you’d prefer to stay indoors to explore a new hobby, a Cloth & Paper subscription box might be more up your alley. The $38 per month box comes with six to eight stationary items, perfect for sending off a note or two to grandma or getting yourself a new penpal.
Expect items like envelopes, stickers and pens, each with a very aesthetically pleasing and high-end design.
This mystery subscription box requires you to use your brain to solve an intricate murder mystery. It’s the perfect thing for a murderino, but do note that it requires a commitment. The subscription box features one murder over the course of six months, so if you actually want to find the killer, you’ll have to subscribe for that entire six months.
Not up for the time commitment? You can find others like this that are more low-key (and a little more PG).
Finding the Right Subscription Box For You
Finding the perfect subscription box for you (or a loved one) shouldn’t be a huge task. Consider what you like, what you need and how much of a time and cost commitment you’re willing to make. After that, it’s as simple as sitting back and waiting for a monthly subscription box of joy to show up on your doorstep.
