If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that quarantine is no fun. We should all be doing our part to social distance, which means staying at home and minimizing our contact with other people. But just because we’re stuck inside doesn’t mean we’re not allowed to have a little fun.

We are.

Want to bring some essentials and some entertainment right to your door? Here are 13 subscription boxes to help you get through quarantine.

Dollar Shave Club

Unless you want to use quarantine as an excuse to grow a huge, bushy beard, you might want to subscribe to Dollar Shave Club. After all, you’re going to want to look good for all those Instagram posts and Zoom meetings you’re having from home.

Featuring razors, face scrubs and other grooming essentials, Dollar Shave Club is the best way to save money on shaving supplies. It was good before the quarantine, and it will still be good when life gets back to normal.

Sign up now for a $5 free trial (the trial box alone will get you by for a couple of weeks). Once the trial is over, it costs $44 every two months to have all of the essentials auto-delivered to your door.

Like to unwind with a glass (or a bottle) of wine at the end of a long day? Winc may be exactly what you need to help you get through these tough times.

Quarantine is no reason to abandon your beauty routine!

Birchbox is one of the best subscription services for your hair and skin if you love to experiment with new products. It’s also an awesome birthday present that keeps giving month after month.

For $10 per month, you can enjoy a selection of 4 to 5 sample products curated specifically for your skin type, skin tone, and hair type. It’s a great little pick me up, especially if you’re the adventurous type who’s always willing to try something new!

Escape the Crate

There’s no need to go to an escape room ever again, Escape the Crate brings the escape room concept right to your door!

This is the subscription box for you if you love figuring out riddles, cracking codes, and solving mysteries. It’s fun for the entire family, and it’s the perfect departure from the traditional game night of playing board games or video games.

Solving one puzzle in the crate leads to another, and so on and so on until you solve the mystery and “escape the crate.”

The cost to subscribe is $29.99 plus shipping for a bi-monthly crate delivery with a new mystery in each crate.

Elephant Books allows you to choose between paperboard books for children 0 to 2 or hardcover books for kids 2 to 6. A one-month subscription costs $20.99, and you can save even more by ordering a longer subscription package.


FabFitFun is a subscription box filled with fashion, beauty, fitness and wellness goodies mailed quarterly. This is a great subscription box to find new products. Most of the box is filled with full-size products and since it only comes a few times a year the products are much more seasonal.

It is $49.99 once every 3 months and each new box is filled with products valued at over $200.


Barkbox is a subscription box for you guessed it, your dog! Subscription boxes start at $22 per box and every box is valued at over $40. From toys to treats to grooming products, every month there is a different theme. Barkbox is sure to make your furry friend happy every month.

Mask Box

No, we’re not talking about N95 medical masks … we’re talking good old fashioned beauty masks. When the quarantine is over, we’re all going to want to head out looking our best. And that’s what Mask Box is all about.

Facial masks have become a part of many people’s beauty product routines in recent months. And the more time we spend at home the more time we feel the need to pamper ourselves (just a little bit).

From full sheet masks to under-eye patches, you can select a beauty subscription box to match your skin type or suit a specific purpose, like anti-aging or hydration. Subscriptions range from $9.99 per month to $19.99, depending on the package you choose. This monthly subscription box will help you relax with the self-care you deserve!

Butcher Box

Butcher Box example

Chicken and beef have been in short supply in a lot of grocery stores lately. (Maybe all of our vegan friends are onto something). But the meat lovers at Butcher Box are also onto something, delivering the freshest cuts of beef, pork, and other proteins straight to your door.

With a Butcher Box subscription, you can customize your own boxes or select from a variety of pre-packaged boxes full of different meats. They offer five different options at different price points so you can get exactly what you like and nothing you don’t.

There’s currently a waiting list to join the service, so sign up now!
