I love presents, especially when they come in the mail. It’s something that I’ve just come to accept about the non-frugal side of myself. I also love giving to non-profit organizations and seeing how my purchase in little ole Missouri can profit a small business and/or impact a family on the other side of the world.
Combine the two, and I’m just jello.
Today I’m excited to share my top three best subscription boxes with you, and why I love them so much. If you’re looking for a fun splurge or you just want to be more mindful of where your self care products come from, these three companies have you covered.
Confession time: There are some things I just don’t buy simply because everyone else loves them. Is that weird? Oh well.
There is a very popular quarterly subscription box, with several celebrities who all do their own unboxing videos and have their own codes and all the stuff is cute and you save like $200 off the retail prices buying through this subscription.
Nope, still won’t.
But Causebox is different.
It’s the same concept (quarterly subscription of cool stuff with a significant savings), but it has my other favorite aspect: supporting fair-trade and ethical partnerships with small business owners.
The items in this box will introduce you to all sorts of businesses, both local and international. Some businesses donate profits to charities and non-profit organizations. It is so fun to get to see bits of beauty from around the world within these boxes.
In any given season, your subscription box might contain unique earrings, a handmade purse, specialty skin care products, and a beautiful reuseable container (this summer’s was a water bottle, with proceeds going towards providing clean drinking water to poorer countries).
If you purchase an annual subscription, you have the option to customize your box (choose between colors of products or between two different product options).
I’ve talked about Mighty Nest before, but I will talk about it again because it is just that awesome.
For just $10 a month, subscribers receive a delivery of a new product to reduce waste and transition the family to a more natural environment.
Our past subscriptions have included everything from dryer balls to reusable sandwich bags to glass food containers to natural deodorant and just about everything in between. It is so fun to get to open up the box each month and see what new fun product I can begin to incorporate into our home.
I am especially a fan of the beeswax wrap. I wasn’t a believer until I left a half a watermelon in the refrigerator for several days. When I brought it out again, expecting it to be gross, dry, and gummy, it was still firm and juicy, as if it had just been cut.
Mighty Nest was founded by a husband and wife team who were looking for a better way to incorporate reusable and eco-friendly products into their home. They knew about the impact of the excess waste in our environment, and they wanted to avoid exposing their daughter to extra chemicals found in common household products.
Together, they have build a business that provides not only the monthly subscription boxes, but also consistently good deals on all sorts of eco-friendly and sustainable products (all of which you can add to your order and still enjoy the free shipping!).
Interested in upgrading your own “nest”? Get your first month for only $3! Choose between a set of 3 wool dryer balls or 2 sheets of beeswax wrap.
The Love Goodly boxes are another amazing subscription box for women. Each box (shipped bimonthly) is filled with an assortment of gorgeous and yummy products like skin care and stylish home products.
This would be an amazing subscription box for vegan women, since every product is vegan and eco-friendly. And for anyone who wants to limit their exposure to unnecessary chemicals, this box is the absolute best box for you. They have an extensive “banned list” that shows all the chemicals you will not find in Love Goodly boxes, as well as a quick overview of why each one is harmful to the body or environment.
The proceeds from each bimonthly shipment support a different charity. These charities range from environmental causes to women’s health to animal shelters. Order your Love Goodly box here.
As I said before, the best subscription boxes are the ones that combine incredible savings with supporting inspiring causes. If you want ideas to pamper yourself on a budget, or you’re looking for a unique gift idea, be sure to check out these great companies for the highest quality with the biggest savings!
Another awesome vegan subscription box for women is the Kinder Beauty box. This monthly box is filled with 100% vegan and cruelty-free skin care and makeup (in beautifully neutral shades to compliment every skin tone). It is super affordable, and you save a significant amount of money on every product in the box. Each box is under $30, and one month one of the products was a $100 organic moisturizer!
