There’s still something exciting about receiving a package in the mail. It’s even better when a package is delivered every month. That’s why subscription boxes have become so popular in recent years – they combine the child-like anticipation of getting something in the mail, with the unadulterated joy of receiving unique and surprising finds that few other people will have.
No matter what your lifestyle, Cratejoy has a subscription box for you. When you subscribe to one of their boxes, you get a monthly delivery of cool, new and hard-to-find products, selected by a team of experts and enthusiasts and tailored to your likes. Categories include fashion, beauty, food, drink and pets, though there are some more obscure categories for niche hobbies as well. Ready to start browsing? Check out our 10 favorite picks from Cratejoy’s selection and order one for delivery today.

4. New Hobby Box
Every month, you’ll learn a new hobby until you can settle on one you love. Past hobbies have included soap-making, lock picking and crochet. Others have been scrimshaw, soldering, yoga and even making kombucha. At $30, it’s way cheaper – and less of an investment – than signing up for a class.
5. Goddess Provisions
If you’re looking to get centered, a monthly supply of goddess gifts is exactly what’s in order. Each month you’ll get 4-6 full-size items, such as crystals, aromatherapy and apothecary beauty products. You can also expect superfood snacks, teas, crystals, books and more. All products are vegan and cruelty-free.
Crate Joy calls this box “meowvelous” and we couldn’t agree more. If you’ve aged out of your SinglesSwag subscription, maybe it’s time to move onto a monthly delivery of treats for you and your and cats. Yes, it’s plural.
