I have a confession to make. I have tried to beat this and make it go away, but I just can’t. I’m addicted and can’t get enough, and it’s time I come clean.
I’m obsessed with subscription boxes.
Not familiar? Subscription boxes are a recurring delivery of items that usually have some type of theme or person in mind they are targeted to. Typically, the subscriber opts in to be charged monthly or quarterly depending on the box and you get a little something special delivered right to your home. Most subscription boxes will send 3-7 items in the shipment and some even allow you the opportunity to customize your curated box. There are subscription boxes for EVERYTHING, from foodies to book lovers to fitness enthusiasts!
Why do I love subscription boxes so much? Because they are the perfect way to #treatyourself! In the age of focusing on self-care and mental health more than ever before, subscription boxes can be a great way to give yourself a little something to look forward to all year long. Who doesn’t like gifts?
By the way, Mother’s Day is right around the corner! I don’t know about you, but every year I can’t think of much to ask for. As moms, let’s be honest. Everyone else’s needs and wants come before ours 365 days a year and on the one day dedicated to celebrating moms, we often are plagued by mom guilt when the thought enters of doing something for OURSELVES and no one else. Subscription boxes can be the perfect solution! Have a general hobby or thing that you enjoy? There’s probably a subscription box for it. It makes it easier than ever to receive a curated gift without having the pressure of deciding what it is. Intrigued? You should be! See the list below for subscription boxes suited for EVERY kind of mom! Let’s dig in.
