With so much (fun, social stuff) to do and certainly not enough hours in each day to do it all in, we’re opting to outsource our daily chores and tasks more and more. Subscription boxes are the ultimate convenience – it’s basically like having someone else do all your shopping (and in some cases, your cooking) for you, without having to leave your desk/couch/bed. You can find a box for pretty much anything these days – we’ve rounded up a list of our HQ faves…
THE WINE GALLERY
We love The Wine Gallery for it’s fab selection of rare wines you may otherwise not get a chance to try. Being totally honest, they had us at wine – delivered.
PERKS: Your subscription is customised to your tastes and preferences and they even send you meal pairing ideas and recipes.
COST: 3 bottles per month for $69 (plus $9 shipping).
Stuck for date night ideas, or a little sick of doing the same old same old? Enter Date Crate, a lil’ box of goodness to help you and your significant other shake up your boring old date nights. The Crates are designed to be used at home and you never know what you’re going to get. We’re not even going to give you any hints, but let’s just say that we’re pretty sure you’re going to have a heap of fun.
PERKS: Consider date night SORTED without having to do any prep yourself – just pick your date, open your crate, and enjoy it!
COST: $60 per month including shipping
There’s nothing quite like the smell and feel of a printed book – it’s a nice escape from the glare of our computer and phone screens and it’s probably not something we get to do enough of! Bookabuy got us back into the habit. How does it work? Simple! Upon sign up, you select your preferred genre preference and a book of that genre will be delivered to you every month.
PERKS: If you already have it, or you hate, you can return it! Makes a great gift idea, too.
COST: From $27 with free delivery per month
There are a heap of food delivery services around but we like this one for their farm-to-table approach (they support local Aussie farmers) and tasty, healthy meal options and snacks. They come pre-prepped so you pretty much just heat and serve as necessary. They also deliver Australia-wide!
PERKS: Fresh, healthy food, delivered to your door (meals are ‘fresh’, not frozen).
COST: Individual meals from $9.95 and bundles from $39.95. Delivery varies from FREE to $20, depending on your location.
Not a subscription as such, but these beautifully curated fitness boxes were so luxe that we just had to include them on our list. Our pick is the ‘Kickstart Box’, which includes a set of fitness equipment that if perfect for frequent travellers or those who have limited physical space to work out (it includes a skipping rope, resistance bands, a water bottle, to name just a few items). You’ll also have access to a list of exercises that will help you make the most of your box.
PERKS: Fitness made easy. Someone else has carefully taken the time to curate the perfect set of goodies to help motivate you on your fitness journey. Makes a lovely gift, too.
COST: The Kickstart Box costs $99.99 plus $20 delivery
MOXIE BOX CLUB
Call us biased, but we think this is the best bloody idea we’ve ever had (pun intended!). Get all your period must-haves (plus some extras like chocolate, hot water bottles and nano-gold under eye masks) delivered to your other Box…
PERKS: Free delivery, quality products and best of all, you can change, pause or cancel your subscription at any time.
COST: $30 per Box (up to $85 worth of value depending on the products you choose) with FREE shipping Australia wide.
BONUS: For the next 48 hours or so, you can score your first Box FREE (just pay $9.95 shipping). Enter the code FREEBOX at checkout.*
