7 Subscription Boxes You Didn’t Know You Could Get on Amazon
Get a curated shipment of the best new products sent straight to your doorstep. Our favorite subscription boxes from Amazon prices start at less than $10.
We’ll admit it: We’re pretty loyal Amazon shoppers. They have practically everything, and you can send your whole shopping list straight to your doorstep with one click. But sometimes Amazon has so many options that it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the possibilities. If that sounds familiar, you’re in luck. Amazon offers dozens of subscription boxes in a variety of categories. No more second-guessing or overbuying!
We’ve been loving these garden subscription boxes for a while, and we can always appreciate a time-saving meal kit, so we can’t wait to explore the other possibilities. The service works much like Prime Pantry or Amazon Music—when you sign up for a monthly or bi-monthly box it will be added to the ‘Memberships and Subscriptions’ tab of your Amazon account, and it will automatically deduct the monthly charge just like a regular purchase. Some are chosen and filled by Amazon directly, while some come from other reputable companies and are available on Amazon simply for the ease of ordering.
Amazon’s selection is pretty affordable (they start at less than $10 a month). Sign up for a monthly shipment of beauty products, healthy snacks, or even age-appropriate STEM toys for kids. You can even order a package for your pet. Plus, none of these come with a long-term commitment; you can cancel at any time with no additional fees. These are the seven we’re most excited about trying, and they’re all less than $50!
The Allure Beauty Box is a monthly package filled with editors’ favorite new products. Each box holds at least five full-size products—no skimpy sample sizes here! The package is only $15 a month, which is less than you’d pay for most of the single products included. Some Amazon beauty products are even FSA- or HSA-approved, so if you want to reorder something, check to see if they qualify.

Fresh Flower Subscription
We love having fresh flowers in the house, but a bouquet doesn’t typically appear on our doorstep unless it’s a holiday or special occasion. With BloomsyBox, you can treat yourself to a gorgeous floral delivery every month, just because! The monthly rose bouquets are hand-selected by Martha Stewart and come from fair trade farms in Ecuador. Display them alone, or combine them with other flowers to create your own Instagram-worthy flower arrangement.
Don’t forget the family pet when you’re signing up for subscriptions! Amazon offers a variety of pet-theme boxes, so you can get exactly what your four-legged friend needs. FetchBox is a monthly package of toys, treats, and practical accessories created just for dogs and dog owners, and it’s only $14 per month!
STEM Toys Subscription
Whether you have children at home or are just a kid at heart, this subscription is seriously cool. Once you select an age range, STEM Club will send you monthly packages of science-related toys and activities designed to get little ones thinking and learning. This subscription is also one of our favorite gifts for kids.
Loose-Leaf Tea Box
If you're hosting a tea party or simply looking for an afternoon pick-me-up, this box has all the tea you need for a month (or two!). You can select a box of specific loose-leaf varieties or choose the Original Box (which comes with an assortment of caffeinated and non-caffeinated pure, blended, herbal, and flavored teas). Each curated box contains 4 different tea varieties and has enough leaves to brew up to 50 cups. The box doesn't include a tea strainer, so you'll want to buy one with the purchase of your first box. This Loose Leaf Tea Infuser, $4.32, Amazon, makes it easy to steep individual cups.
The SnackNation box was created in partnership with Feeding America, meaning you can enjoy new and healthy snacks while doing a bit of good. Choose from eight, 15, or 25 items, and snack happy knowing that each monthly purchase donates one meal to a family in need.
Camping Gear Box
The Cairn Camping Gear subscription box is the ultimate gift for any adventurer. Perfect for hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities, this box is filled with full-size products. For instance, one recent package was full of items designed to help you stay hydrated and energized like a Hydro Flask bottle, water bottle cleaning tablets, and snacks. The subscription is just less than $30 a month and contains more than $50 worth of new and high-quality products.
These picks are just a handful of the subscription options available through Amazon, and there really is something for everyone! Plus, the first month of most subscriptions cost less than the normal monthly cost, so you can try the service at a discounted price and cancel without additional fees if you don't absolutely love it.
