The 10 Best Monthly Boxes for All Your Needs

•  4 minute read

There’s an online “club” for everything from socks to wines. These monthly boxes will make sure you never miss out on what’s important to you.

Love wine? Addicted to coffee? Passionate about fashion? There seem to be monthly membership boxes for everything these days. So whether you’re a fashionista or a coffee-lover (or both!), subscribing to the right shopping box may be a huge money-saver. We have the best monthly boxes for you, all right here.

1. The Best Monthly Box for the Shaving Enthusiast

What It Is

The Dollar Shave Club delivers you a monthly set of four new razor heads (blades) for your razor. You can choose one of three types of razors, ranging from $1 a month to $9 a month. For ladies who are skeptical of using the same razor that a man would use, trust me:

I’m a 24-year-old woman who’s been using the Dollar Shave Club for a year now, and I’m never going back. 

What It Costs

$1, $6, or $9 a month, depending on the razor you choose 

2. For the Makeup Enthusiast

What It Is

Birchbox sends a monthly delivery of beauty, skin care, and grooming product samples for both men and women. Its low cost and wide array of options make it a no-brainer, even just to try out. The company has come under fire recently for struggling to expand past the “monthly samples” stigma and to become a bona-fide beauty line, but that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from those samples!

What It Costs

$10 a month 

3. For the Wine (or Beer) Lover

What It Is

Winc is the ultimate wine subscription service, with high quality bottles of wine averaging out to about $13 dollars a pop. Yes, wine can be cheaper than that, but good wine can also be a lot more expensive — and a lot harder to find.

What It Costs

$13 per bottle, or around $45 per case

4. For the Highly Caffeinated

What It Is

Craft Coffee offers to send you freshly roasted coffee delivered to you within days of roasting. And the best part is that they have a price-match promise that you’ll be able to pay grocery store prices for your favorite coffee.

What It Costs

$10 to $25 a month, depending on your coffee preferences

 

5. For the Endorphin Junkie

What It Is

You might have seen the commercials for Fabletics — you know, the ones where Kate Hudson jumps all over the screen and moves in ways you’ve never seen your own body move?

If you can ignore the intimidation factor of buying something from somebody who looks like a mermaid, you’ll see that Fabletics is actually a great deal. While activewear has become a high-stakes game — with the “good stuff” running you hundreds of dollars, and the “reasonable stuff” usually quite uncomfortable to sweat in — Fabletics provides a happy medium. It costs $49.95 a month for shipments of the latest workout outfits. Considering that even the cheapest yoga pants usually run you $20 to $30 bucks, this is a sweet deal for anyone who works out a few times a week.

What It Costs

$49.95

6. For the Gardener

What It Is

Seeds! That you grow! This is the cutest (and cheapest) subscription option: The Seeds of the Month Club sends you four packs of vegetable or herb seeds every month. For anyone with a little bit of soil and an interest in being outdoors, this will save you hundreds of dollars each year by growing your own fruits and veggies. Plus you get the added bonus of bragging to your friends about how environmentally savvy you are.

What It Costs

$3.50 a month

7. For the Sock Aficionado

What It Is

Sock of the month” clubs have been popping up left and right in the last five years, and for good reason: There’s no article of clothing that seems to disappear faster than a sock. Most sock clubs cost from $9 to $12 dollars a month, so consider basing your choice on what type of socks you want, rather than which monthly membership box is the cheapest. There’s Sock Club for the standard wear, Foot Cardigan for the outrageous, and Black Socks for, well, the obvious.

What It Costs

$9 to $12 a month 

8. Subscription-Based Clothing for Women

What It Is

For those fashionistas who love a constantly fresh, rotating closet, Le Tote is the subscription for you. It’s a monthly clothing rental (yes, rental) service that sends you a new shipment of outfits each month for you to wear, then return at the end of the month for your next set. If you love something, you can buy it. Otherwise, you can always adjust your looks and clothing favorites with your Le Tote account.

What It Costs

$39 to 59 a month

9. Men’s Monthly Clothing Box

What It Is

The Five Four Club is the most standard, but high-quality monthly clothing subscription service for men. Depending on the season, you’ll get an assortment of apparel every month, from shorts to jackets to button-downs to ties. It’s the perfect subscription for men who want to look put-together at every occasion without having to break the bank. 

What It Costs

$60 a month

10. For the GQ Man

What It Is

Sprezzabox is similar to the Five Four Club, but it focuses primarily on men’s accessories like watches, ties, socks, and cologne. Consider it your one-stop shop for all the things that tie an outfit together. It might overlap with other subscriptions you consider, though, so check what type of accessories you would want in your box. For example, you won’t need socks in your Sprezzabox if you’re already getting a pair of socks from another subscription service.

What It Costs

$28 a month

There you have it! The best monthly boxes for you to sink your teeth into, regardless of your interests. We’ve always got you covered.
