This post was originally published in October 2017 and has been updated to reflect new information. 

The number of monthly subscription box services has exploded over the last few years as our busy lifestyles demand convenience as a top priority.

At first, I was annoyed by the trend (as I am with most crazes)…but once I really thought about it, I realized subscription boxes weren’t just a fleeting fad. They were filling a serious void.

So why would you want to sign up for a monthly subscription box? Here are a few of the benefits I’ve found:

The best healthy subscription boxes

  • Discover new products you love that you likely wouldn’t have found or purchased elsewhere; many boxes are even curated specifically to your style and preferences
  • Save time shopping (am I the only woman that despises going to the store?), thus getting to spend more time on whatever else you please! (Who wants to sit in traffic anyway?!)
  • Save money by getting to test out sample sizes or try products without having to pay their regular full price
  • It’s fun to receive packages with surprises in the mail!
  • Once you find a product you like, you can set up automatic delivery so it’s one less thing to have to think about restocking on a regular basis.

To wit, I’ve round up the best monthly subscription boxes for a healthy lifestyle across various categories. Use the links below to skip to your favorites!

ButcherBox: Best Meat Delivery Subscription Box

Our Top 10 Favorite Healthy Subscription Boxes

This is a list of my top 10 favorite boxes across ALL categories that I personally use and love!

1) ButcherBox: Organic, Humanely Raised Meat Delivery

ButcherBox is hands down my favorite monthly subscription service when it comes to high-quality food. They deliver an awesome selection of humanely raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free cuts direct to your door, including 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef, free-range organic chicken and heritage breed pork.

If you have trouble finding clean, healthy meat near you–or if you want to skip the shopping and have the convenience of knowing that each month you’ll have a new assortment of carefully curated meat from small farms automatically delivered (and all in one eco-friendly box!)–then ButcherBox is for you. Plus, it’s super affordable, and shipping is always free (to the continental 48 states).

BE SURE NOT TO MISS THIS…

When you sign up for your first box today, you can get $20 off PLUS FREE heritage-breed, uncured, sugar- and nitrate-free bacon in your first box (plus free shipping)! (Yep, the bacon is Whole30, Keto and Paleo approved!)

Or, check out ButcherBox’s current limited-time promotion here for free goodies! They’re always rotating through amazing specials like free salmon, ground beef for life, and many more, so see what’s new here

Scout & Cellar, clean natural wine delivery

2) Scout & CellarClean-Crafted Wine Delivery

Scout & Cellar sources wine from makers all over the world that only use traditional winemaking methods. Their tagline is CLEAN-CRAFTED™ wine, meaning all their wines are independently tested and certified to be low in sulfites, have no added sugar (many have less than 1 g/L), and free from GMOs, dyes, synthetic pesticides, copper sulfate, ammonium phosphate, ferrocyanide, and mega-purple (all of which live in mass-produced wines, bleck!)

You can order directly without a membership, or join their Wine Club where you can get 5-10% off orders and pick the number of bottles you’d like to receive, as well as how often you’d like to receive them (monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly).

Beauty Heroes Box

3) Beauty Heroes: Healthy Beauty Products

I love that Beauty Heroes delivers full-size hero products in their monthly Discovery Box. Typically, each box has one Hero product and ‘Sidekick’ trial size (sometimes you get more than one sidekick or several full-size Hero products).

Each box is valued at least $90 in truly healthy beauty that meets their strict ingredient standards. Bonus: When you are a member of Beauty Heroes, you receive a 15% discount in their Beauty Store, insider exclusives and early access to new product launches.

Surprisly Subscription Box

4) Surprisly: Organic Baby Clothes

I was blown away by how much I loved this adorable, curated subscription box of boutique baby outfits. The majority of clothing is made from organic cotton that is both comfortable and conscious.

Each box contains three outfits; one for playtime, one for a day out, and one for bedtime. By working directly with elite brands, Surprisly brings you everything below retail cost. Every box is valued at at least $100 (for a cost of just $63!), and all with free shipping and in 100% recyclable packaging.

The Detox Box

6) The Detox Box: Clean Beauty Products

One of the most popular clean beauty boxes, the monthly Detox Box from the Detox Market features holy grail green beauty products valued at $90 (plus free shipping!).

All products are cruelty-free, meet the Detox Market’s safe ingredient standards, and actually perform. Past brands include some of my personal faves, like Innersense, Vapour, Osmia, One Love, Hynt, Josh Rosebrook, Herbivore, Indie Lee, and W3ll People.

Literati Books: Book Club for babies + children

7) Literati Books: Children’s + Babies Book Club

I love the idea of a book club for babies! With Literati, for just $9.95 a month you get a package with a new theme, like science or friendship, that includes five age-appropriate books, six personalized book plates, original art by a famous illustrator, a personalized note and themed surprise extras.

Then you have a week to explore the books and pick your favorites, buying the books you love (price matched or cheaper than on Amazon) and returning the rest. It’s such a fun way to explore new books, without having to buy before you read.

Literati offers four different clubs options across ages 0-9 so you can customize it for your desired age range. With Jackson being 1 year old now, I go for the Club Neo, intended for 0-3 years old. Their books are inspiring, creative, beautiful, aspirational, and educational all at once.

THE BEST MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION BOXES: FASHION + CLOTHING

We all know that most clothes end up in the back of our closets or the bottom of landfills. Instead of buying tons of clothes that you’ll never wear, using a subscription box is a less wasteful and more fun way to get new clothes on the regular! Some of these brands have an eco-friendly or workout-inspired touch, giving them extra points in the ‘green’ and healthy categories.

  • Ellie BoxIf you workout often, I bet you get tired of wearing the same old yoga pants again and again… amiright?! With Ellie Box’s activewear subscription, pick your favorite 3-piece outfit from their carefully crafted selections. Then, mix and match your new stuff with exclusive add-ons, or layer with your own wardrobe to create new looks. You can skip a month, cancel any time, and adjust your sizing preferences (note: they run super small) each month. If the fit or feel of an item isn’t quite right, they’ll replace it at no extra charge!
  • Yoga ClubAn activewear subscription box at 50% off retail prices! Take a style quiz, then their stylists match you with a 3-piece outfit designed for your activities, personality, and body type, all from top brands like manduka, Beyond Yoga, teeki, and onzie. I just ordered my first box and can’t wait to see what’s inside!
  • wearwell: Less a subscription box and more a personal shopper subscription service, Shop Wear Well has a much lower carbon footprint than the typical subscription box since they offer a digital selection of clothing. When you become a member for just $8.50/month, you receive a monthly selection of clothing and accessories from ethical and conscious brands, curated just for you by your wearwell stylist based on your preferences. Purchase only what you love from your selection (using your membership fee as credit), tell your stylist what you thought, and look forward to next month’s selections!
  • Rent the RunwayCreate a flexible and minimal wardrobe with RTR! Renting clothes makes so much sense, especially for events like weddings or work events, where you usually buy an outfit only to wear it once. Get 20% off your first order or $80 off an unlimited trial here!

  1. Do you recommend any good recipe sites for the beef subscription sites? Need to change up our game!!

  2. I’ve been looking for a list of less toxic subscription boxes so this is perfect.
    Recently, a friend gave me a box from QVC with different body washes for my birthday which I thought was a brilliant idea. I had never thought of giving that as a gift. Duh, what a perfect idea for a friend who has everything. Who doesn’t like getting a box of goodies? Hence, the search for a variety of subscription boxes for ideas for future gifts. So I’ll be saving this for sure!

    • Stacy, offering these as presents is so simple, easy, creative, and thoughtful! There really is a subscription box that will make everyone happy! And who doesn’t love to make gift shopping EASY?! 🙂 Thanks so much for reading and commenting!

  3. This is such a fun compilation! I don’t have any monthly subscription boxes right now but really want to try Love Goodly and Raw Spice Bar! Thanks for sharing.
