TheraBox Self Care Subscription Box

The TheraBox Self Care subscription box is one of the best I’ve seen on Amazon. Each month the subscriber receives a self-care activity, as well as 7 to 8 wellness products. According to the product page, each box is therapist-curated and provides “self care essentials filled with all things mindful, thoughtful, and beautiful to help you relax and live an inspired life.” I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t be mad if I received this, especially since I always find myself needing self-care night at least once a week.


Skylar Scent Club

If you’ve read my previous article about finding your signature scent or you’re wanting to discover new fragrances, this box is for you. The Skylar Scent club provides its subscribers with limited edition, hypoallergenic rollerball fragrances monthly. They even donate proceeds from the boxes purchased to different organizations. This is one of the best deals I’ve seen for perfumes, especially since the brand sells its full-size perfumes on its Amazon storefront as well. The travel size options in the subscription box are perfect for those trying to find a new scent or just need a little spritz on the go.

Costa Farms Plant Subscription Box

As a plant mom, I think a plant subscription box is such a cute idea. The one from Costa Farms on Amazon is not only a good price, but it also contains “…at least one: Dracaena, Coffee Plant, Peace Lily, Parlor Palm, Peperomia, Pothos, Snake Plant, Fern (just to name a few) and from three to four succulents-cactus varying in size,” its Amazon product page states. This box provides a great variety of plants for avid plant parents or those trying to discover new varieties monthly.


Vinyl of the Month Club

Calling all record collectors, this box is for you. The Amazon Music vinyl of the month club provides subscribers with one record monthly based on the subscription they choose. The categories for this box include The Golden Era (1960s-1970s), Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop and Country. Each monthly record, according to the product page, is handpicked by the professionals at Amazon Music. Not only is this box affordable considering the high price vinyl usually goes for at record stores, but it is also great for the music lover in your life, as well as those looking to build up their vinyl collection.

Fit Snack

If you’re an avid snacker or are trying to find healthy alternatives the Fit Snack box is a great option. Every month, subscribers receive “up to 10 premium healthy snacks ranging from high-quality chips, delicious jerky, seed and nut blends, granola, whole fruit snacks and exotic, healthy bars,” according to its product page on Amazon. I definitely think this box is worth investing in because, not only is it inexpensive, but it allows those interested to try different snacks before fully committing to purchasing a full pack of them at the grocery store.


My Coffee and Book Club

This subscription box has to be the cutest Amazon subscription box I’ve seen, especially as an avid coffee drinker and book reader. Subscribers receive either coffee grounds or beans and two books monthly. What makes this box even better is that you get to pick the genre you’d like to receive and you can change it at any time during your subscription. Not only will this box fuel your coffee addiction if you don’t already have one, but it will help you grow your personal library while helping you discover new books and authors.


Overall, these six Amazon subscription boxes are only a few of the great and affordable ones the brand has to offer. Amazon has subscription boxes available for anyone no matter their lifestyle — they even offer some for pets! So, if you’re looking to purchase a gift for someone or to treat yourself, I recommend looking there first, you never know what you’ll end up finding.
