Subscriptions are having a moment, and we’re here for it. Regular deliveries not only make our lives way easier, but they also make a fun gift for others or yourself.
But which ones are the best? And are there any new options that you maybe haven’t heard of?
If you’re looking for a subscription service for yourself or a special lady in your life, consider one of these 52 best subscription boxes for women.
Best Subscription Boxes for Plant Mommas
Who can resist the look of fresh greens and flowers? These subscription boxes are a great way to add some life back into the dreary corners of your humble abode. Send them to a friend, Grandma or even keep them for your own tablescape.
1. The Sill
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.
If that’s the case, then you need a Bouqs flower subscription. You can choose from a wide array of subscription options, starting at $52, for weekly, biweekly, monthly or bimonthly bouquets shipped to your home. You can opt to just have fresh roses delivered on the regular, or pick a bouquet style, from classic to seasonal to farmers market picks.
Do you think you still can’t handle the pressure of The Sill’s monthly plants? Your green thumb just not green enough yet?
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 personal style and home decor.
Urbanstems offers flower subscriptions starting at $55, and each subscription comes with a free vase with your first delivery, plus free shipping. Each bouquet is curated to your preferences. Subscription tiers range from weekly to biweekly to monthly, and you can pick from bouquet styles such as classic, seasonal or luxury.
5. Click and Grow
But if you prefer to actually grow those plants yourself versus just admiring them from afar, get your hands dirty with the Click and Grow subscription.
You’ll need to start out with the brand’s smart garden, but once you have this space-saving countertop grower, you’ll be on your way to growing fresh produce for all your favorite recipes, and the subscription will ensure you always have new plants to replace the produce that you consume over time.
Pick from dozens of herbs, flowers and veggies, whether you want to grow some greens for a salad, basil for your next Italian dinner or strawberries for your cocktails.
Best Subscription Boxes for Stylistas
If COVID has your shopping experience somewhat limited, you’ll be happy to know that there are still ways to stay up with the latest trends without having to leave the house.
6. Smartass and Sass
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 just 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.
7. Stitch Fix
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.
8. Gwynnie Bee
For the women that just can’t seem to make a decision, Gwynnie Bee is a rental subscription service that lets you try on clothes without the pressure to commit to anything.
Whether you decide to wear an item once or need it for a few more occasions, you simply send them back to Gwynnie Bee for cleaning. That’s right, they clean each item for you and offer free shipping.
If you really love a piece, you can purchase it at a discounted price.
Gwynnie Bee pricing depends on how many items you want to rent. Plans start at $49 for one item at a time, albeit unlimited rentals throughout the month. For the fashion aficionado, you can opt for more. Their largest subscription of 10 items at a time is $199/ month.
If your fashion tastes trend more toward jewelry than clothing or beauty products, then you may enjoy Rocksbox. Starting at $49, the subscription sends you three pieces of designer jewelry 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.
10. Emma & Chloe
Another jewelry-themed box, Emma & Chloe sends metal-loving subscribers designer jewelry worth $50-$100 each month for just $35.
Each piece is made from either stainless steel or recycled brass and plated with 18K fine gold or silver rhodium. When stones are involved, you will receive natural stones––meaning each piece is unique.
And, the best part is that you get to keep these pieces.
11. Elite by Adore Me
Fashion subscription boxes don’t end there. Beyond clothing and jewelry, 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 basically 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.
12. The Curation Box
From tastemaker Rachel Zoe, The Curation Box delivers curated wardrobe and beauty picks to your doorstep every quarter. While this is one of the more pricey subscription boxes on our list, you can rely on The Curation Box to consistently deliver luxury items, with each box coming in at a value of more than $400.
Plus, with each box, you’ll have a few individual items to pick and choose from, so you’re not stuck with whatever gets sent your way. For example, a recent box included a $100 face serum, $50 sleep mask and $200 day tote, but then subscribers also received their choice between yellow gold and white gold earrings, mascara or eyeliner.
13. Layered with Lace
Shopping for new bras can be a real chore. Make things a little easier on yourself (and maybe even a little fun) with a bralette subscription from Layered with Lace. Each month, you’ll receive a lacy, beautiful bralette paired with a matching set of panties. It’s an easy way to upgrade your underwear drawer without having to ever set foot in a lingerie store.
Best Subscription Boxes for Beauty Lovers
Who says beauty has to be painful? These beauty boxes are a convenient way to test out some of the industry’s hottest trends without the struggle of driving to store after store only to blow your budget on an impulse buy.
14. The Target Beauty Box
If you’re more into skincare and makeup than you are clothing, and you’re looking for a very affordable subscription box to start off, you may want to check out the Target Beauty Box.
Each month or season, you’ll receive a box of sample products, featuring products from across Target’s most popular brands. Monthly boxes start at $7, but sell out fast. Target also offers capsules for $15. Either option you choose, 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 off your skin type and beauty needs and then enjoy the affordable boxes (starting at $15) shipped to your home. Each box is filled with top and new items from favorited skincare and beauty brands, like Living Proof, Kiehl’s, Benefit Cosmetics and others.
16. Boxy Charm
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.
Based in the UK, Glossybox curates some of the highest-quality beauty products in a lovely $21 box.
Each box is intentionally built with 5 deluxe-sized products. We love this company’s focus on vegan, cruelty-free and quality ingredients that won’t leave your face feeling like a plastics factory.
As an added bonus, subscribers can purchase items through the marketplace at a discount.
Ipsy is a monthly subscription box that offers a selection of deluxe-sized, high-quality beauty samples and skincare products, plus a special gift (that you pick out!). If you’re the type of beauty buyer who prefers to try things before committing to a full-size product, you may prefer Ipsy over some of the similar beauty subscription boxes.
With Ipsy, you also pick from multiple subscription tiers. The lowest subscription tier is $13 a month and comes with five samples totaling $50 in value, and you get to choose one of your products. The highest subscription tier comes with both monthly and quarterly deliveries, and that extra quarterly delivery comes with eight full-size products worth up to $350, and you get to choose three of them.
Work hard, play hard. And if you don’t want to smell like you’ve been working hard all day, Scentbird is for you.
A $16 subscription will get you the most popular scents in convenient trial-size tubes that are perfect for your purse.
Your first month will run you a bit less and include a cute holder for your spray bottles.
20. Skylar Scent Club
When you want to smell nice without slathering on toxic chemicals, Skylar Scent Club is a great alternative.
For just $20, you will get a rollie filled with a hypoallergenic, cruelty-free scent. Each fragrance is free of parabens, phthalates, SLS and synthetic dyes. If you don’t like a particular scent, Skylar Scent Club offers free exchanges.
And if all that isn’t enough, this company also supports non-profits.
Best Food & Drink Subscription Boxes for Women
Despite the misconceptions that women don’t actually eat…we do. For our fellow foodies who enjoy good eating (and drinking), these boxes are for you.
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.
22. Ryan Brothers Coffee
You don’t have to venture to southern California for a quality cup of artisan coffee thanks to the Ryan Brother Coffee subscription.
Enjoy sustainably crafted coffee, tea and hot chocolate delivered straight to your door.
Your monthly cost will vary depending on the type of drink you choose, but subscribers get 10% off retail prices. Get a sample box for just $9 and find your favorite blend.
23. Hungry Root
For the woman on the go, Hungry Root combines meal planning, grocery shopping and food prep into one simple service.
This previously plant-based platform has expanded its selection and now includes dairy, eggs and meat in addition to their usual plant-based proteins. You can also shop for bread, snacks, desserts and other pantry items.
Plans start at $59 with the ability to adjust or cancel your orders whenever you need to.
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.
25. Firstleaf Wine Club
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.
26. Craft Beer Club
Prefer a six-pack to a bottle of wine? Craft Beer Club has you covered. For $42 per monthly delivery, you’ll receive twelve beers sourced from microbreweries located all across the United States.
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.
27. Sips By
If tea is more your drink than beer or wine, then you may just love a Sips By tea subscription. This subscription offers you a personalized tea discovery box every month. You get four new teas to try (and the teas are based on your quiz-decided taste preferences), plus steeping instructions and tasting notes and tea filters.
Additionally, if you’re a Sipsby membership holder, you get fun extras such as invites to virtual tea parties, early access to seasonal items and access to tea-related content and accessories.
28. Shaker & Spoon
Shaker & Spoon is a monthly subscription ideal for the budding mixologist. Each month, you get a box that comes with three recipes and all the extra ingredients needed to make 12 different cocktails (besides the booze — you’ll have to furnish that yourself). The featured craft cocktails focus on a range of spirits, but all come with fun additions to your bar cart, such as unique syrups and oils, garnishes and citrus fruit.
29. Trade Coffee Subscription
Another coffee-focused subscription, this option sends you ethically sourced craft coffee based on your preferences. You can customize the subscription, including the quantity of coffee included and frequency of deliveries to fit your needs, whether you’re a five-cups-a-day kinda gal or just a casual, occasional coffee sipper.
30. Williams Sonoma Luxury Food Crates
What woman doesn’t love charcuterie? Deck out your next charcuterie board with these awesome offerings from Williams Sonoma. The favorited kitchenware brand will send you three boxes, one each month for three months, of luxury food items perfect for snacking and sharing.
The first box is the beehive box, with two types of cheese, dried figs, almonds, honey, salami and olive oil crackers. The next box is a tour of France, with European-inspired cheeses and accouterments. The final box comes with an Italian twist, with pasta included, for a more robust meal.

Best Subscription Boxes for Healthy Women
From exercising to mental health, these boxes are designed to help you live your best, most healthy life.
It’s like if your therapist created a monthly box intended to help you just chill out and focus on your own 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.
If you’re always in need of some new activewear, Ellie can keep you stocked, sending you two to five activewear items each month, starting at $40 per month.
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 from 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.
There are few things women can count on, but the fact that you’re going to need to buy regular period products is one of them. And you can either make an uncomfortable trip to the store each month, or you can have them delivered conveniently to your door.
A subscription with Lola will have you enjoying nontoxic and hypoallergenic period products delivered regularly so you never have to worry about running out.
But the love doesn’t stop there. Lola also provides products for intimacy and hygiene, and they help underprivileged girls get the supplies they need.
Subscription pricing depends on the products you choose, but they start at $7.
Best Subscriptions Boxes for Women Who Need a Hobby
Women’s days should be made up of more than just working, sleeping and keeping everyone else’s lives together. If you’re on the hunt for a new hobby, bring a little fun into your spare time with one of these activity-geared boxes.
Discover your crunchy side and get outdoors this summer. Find new favorite outdoor hobbies, with a $30 monthly subscription box from Cairn.
You start by making a profile that tells the brand all about your favorite outdoor and adventure activities, and 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.
36. Cloth & Paper
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 pen pal. Expect items like envelopes, stickers and pens, each with a very aesthetically pleasing and high-end design.
37. Hunt a Killer
The Hunt A Killer 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).
38. Breo Box
Breo Box comes quarterly, and each box is filled with the latest and greatest new products in the tech sphere. If you’ve been wanting to take your life into the modern age, here’s how you can do it — and every box comes with items that are actually fun, to make learning new tech a hobby you can get behind with ease. Think a WiFi-powered digital photo frame, a smart travel mug or a smart lock.
39. Jiggy Puzzle Club
If you’ve gotten into puzzling recently, the Jiggy Puzzle Club may be your perfect fit. This club sends you one new 500-piece puzzle every month. You get to pick your puzzle out of the seasonal options, and each puzzle comes in a drawstring bag in a box with a matching print.
The best part? Each puzzle celebrates the work of a female artist and supports their career.
40. BookBrews Book Subscription Box
This monthly subscription available on Etsy comes with everything you need for a cozy night in, curled up with a favorite book. You get one book in the genre of your choosing (fiction, non-fiction, classic, memoir, thriller, romance or self-help) and then some coffee and chocolate. You can buy just a one-off box or a three-month or six-month subscription.
41. Book of the Month Club
The Book of the Month Club, however, is likely the most popular book subscription, and it’s as straightforward and as simple as it gets. Each month, the club features a handful of books that you get to choose from. You decide if you want one book or more. Then, the books are delivered, and the process repeats the next month.
There’s a nice range of genres that are featured each month. A recent month’s five offerings, for example, included two contemporary fiction books, a historical fiction book, a romance and a thriller.
42. The Nomadik
Another outdoorsy subscription box, The Nomadik’s monthly and quarterly subscription deliveries will inspire you to get outdoors and explore, all with the right gear to make your adventures as comfortable and safe as possible. Each delivery is tailored to your individual interests, and subscriptions start at $30 per month but with a value of up to $200 or more.
Recent products featured in the boxes have ranged from duffel bags to trail lights, hiking bladders, to a compass.
Best Subscription Boxes for the Chic Homebody
If your hobby is homemaking — and we’re not talking whipping up casseroles in the kitchen, but actually creating a homey atmosphere through all the right choices required, from the perfect home decor to the best scents to the ideal amenities in your guest room — then you’ll want to go with these subscription boxes that will help you make your home a haven.
43. The Something Special Box
With the Something Special subscription, each box only comes with one item, but each item is picked with love and care, both when it comes to sourcing sustainably and ethically, as well as when it comes to finding something you’re bound to love.
Think an artisan vase handcrafted in Oaxaca or a hand-poured candle from an indie studio somewhere in the Northeast. Every pick truly is something special.
44. Vella Box
If you can never resist picking up a new candle (or two, or three — because aromatherapy is self-care, right?), then you’ll want to consider this affordable subscription service that delivers handpicked artisan candles to your door every month from makers all over the country.
Choose from three different box sizes, but expect one candle from a featured artisan of the month, one candle curated to your scent preferences, a lifestyle item and a curated playlist to match your candle’s mood. Recent featured scents have included dark rose and laudanum, fig tree and freesia, and sandalwood and smoke.
Women Who Want A Little bit of Everything
When you can’t decide what you want, or want to enjoy a little variety, these boxes will give you a little bit of everything.
Formerly Causebox, Alltrue curates quarterly boxes filled with artisan goods from all over the globe. Each sustainably made item supports fair wages and women workers around the world.
Members will enjoy seasonally appropriate beauty products, jewelry and home goods, among other things. You will also have access to the member-exclusive add-on marketplace.
Subscriptions start at $55 with savings if you buy a year at a time.
Another artisan box, Globein provides one of a kind home goods that were sustainably made from artisans all throughout the world.
Much like Alltrue, Globein offers an add-on marketplace for members to shop their past-box favorites. But unlike our previous pick, Globein delivers boxes each month, so you don’t have to wait for the seasons to change to get another set of goodies.
Memberships start at $35 if you sign up for a year long commitment. For a 3 month membership, you’ll pay $40.
Being single is not a death sentence. In fact, there is no lamenting necessary. Celebrate yourself and the season of life you’re in with a SinglesSwag subscription box.
Each month, you will receive 4-8 full-sized items designed to inspire, empower and remind you how beautiful you are.
The number of items and the monthly cost for this box depends on the size. A regular box will run you about $38 and give you 7-8 products while the SinglesSwag Petite Box will cost just $24 and contain 4-5 items.
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 $200 of 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.
49. BE KIND. by ellen
In a world in which you can be anything, be kind. BE KIND. by ellen makes a great gift for mom, yourself or any other special lady that needs a break from the callousness of the world.
Each quarterly box contains some of Ellen’s favorite beauty and home items, sure to bring some luxury and fun into your home.
Subscriptions start at $55, and if you choose to preorder the year, you will enjoy some extra savings.
It seems like everyone needs a little more hope in their lives now and then. Take a break from all that’s happening in the world and enjoy a little encouragement for yourself or share it with those around you.
Each Hopebox contains handmade treasures and a personalized, uplifting letter.
Boxes range from $48 to $89, depending on the number of goodies you choose.
51. OuiPlease Box
For francophiles who would rather be in Paris right now, the OuiPlease Box offers bi-monthly and annual subscriptions that send you some of the best of the best in French-sourced luxe items, from fashion accessories to home goods to edible treats. Each item is a full-sized product, and each box is worth $300 or more in value.
Boxes have included items such as organic coffee, espresso cups, cookies, perfume and even swimwear.
52. Undiscovered Artisan Box
Undiscovered Artisan will send you a box of handcrafted, fair-trade artisan goods totaling more than $200 in retail value every three months. Each quarterly box focuses on a different region of the world as its theme. Plus, you’ll get to choose one of your box’s items for extra customization.
A recent box featured an India theme, and personalized gifts that subscribers could choose from included a beaded jacket, cotton travel bag, cotton throw blanket shawl, wooden candle holder, wooden necklace, handmade paper journals, a wooden cell phone stand or a handwoven cosmetics case.
Finding the Right Subscription Box For You
Finding the perfect subscription box for you (or a loved one) shouldn’t be a huge task. All you need to do is 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.
