Lately, it seems like everyone is coming out with a subscription box, and…I love it! The internet is making it cool to get mail again. I’ve been crushing on these for-women, by-women curated subscriptions. I know Mother’s Day is coming up, but these are great gifts for any woman in your life, at any time of year. A few of the boxes do have special Mother’s Day boxes, though. You might want to hurry if you’re looking for one!
Of course, there are tons of subscription boxes out there, for almost anything you can think of. This is a teeny tiny sampling. I chose these because they’re all pretty diverse and also owned by Black women! I also like their price ranges, from as low as $9.99 to $125 for a three-month sub, if you’re the committing type.
1. The Fun Fly Fabulous Box
The Fun Fly Fabulous subscription box is a lifestyle box that delivers everything from hair products to home goods right to your door. This sub comes with four to five full-size items in a gorgeously packaged product. Want to feel fab? You’ll always be happy to get mail with this gorgeous package waiting for you.
2. The Fresh Spice Box
The Fresh Spice Box is a home cook’s dream delivery service. If you want to branch out and tease your palate with spices from around the world, you need this in your life. The boxes are themed with spices that complement. So one month you could get the box to make the perfect bowl of chili, or you might find the base to create your own curry.
3. The Femly Box
The Femly Box is for the woman who wants to make her period a comma and not a full STOP to her busy life. Femly brings you 100% cotton period products monthly for less than $10! And, if you want a higher tier, you can get goodies like healthy snacks–and chocolate– pamper-yourself products, and a VIP gift.
4. The Wander Away Box
Wanna get away without setting foot outside your door? I’m a little in love with The Wander Away Box, which puts the world in your hands. This box brings you everything from genuine leather-bound travel journals, to themed boxes from specific countries. Satisfy your wanderlust or inspire your next trip abroad!
5. The Self Care Box
If you’re a busy mom who needs a monthly boost of self-care you don’t have to schedule, The Self Care Box is especially curated for women who have put themselves on the back burner too long. This box comes bursting with gorgeous affirmation cards and thoughtful treats. Subscribers also gain access to a private Facebook support group, discount on the fall retreat, and weekly email affirmations.
6. The Artisan Love Box
Personally, one of my favorite indulgences from farmer’s markets is handmade candles or soaps. The Artisan Love Box is a heady assortment of sugar scrubs, soaps, candles, and other bath and body care items made with love.
7. The Homegirl Box
And for the feminist among you, I highly recommend The Homegirl Box. With names like The Assata Box and The Frida Box, this curated collection partners with women-owned business to pay homage to the resistance fighters. You might find something like Frida Kahlo earrings or an “Assata is welcome here” shirt from Philadelphia Printworks.
