10 OUT OF THE BOX subscription services you didn’t know you wanted!


Who doesn’t love the thrill of a new package at their doorstep? With subscription boxes, you get the best of all worlds- treating yourself while discovering your next brand obsessions… without leaving your bed.

From its roots in beauty boxes like Birchbox, pioneered by college besties Katia Beauchamp and Hayley Barna in 2010, this market has exploded as our digital lives have grown. Now, boxes cater to everyone from chicks with attitude to aspiring mermaids; wannabe chefs to dogs on a diet.  We’ve unboxed several original ones on ShopStreet to bring you the coolest unwraps. Enjoy!

Treats for fresh fruit fans and sassy gals

Need a vitamin C boost? Fruit for Thought can help. Subscribe for monthly crates of themed fruity goodies, including jewelry, snacks, body care treats, home decor, and stationery. Tempted? We can tell you that the forecast for February is raspberry white chocolate. Next up, a Coconut Key Lime-filled March before Fruit Loops takes over in April.

If you’re a nasty woman and the gifts people give you just don’t hit the spot, visit Smartass and Sass. They’ll send you a monthly edit putting a snarky yet charming slant on things. Your curated dose comes with handpicked products from artists and small businesses to keep you smirking! Check out these unboxing videos to get a (slightly profane) taste.

Dive into niche heaven…

There’s a box for every soul, no matter how niche. For ‘sockscribers’ who don’t take themselves too seriously, Next Sock is the coolest, most awesome random sock subscription. Is there such a thing as too many baby plants? Succulents of the Month Club says of course not!  If you’re a city gal with a mermaid alter ego, you’re all set. Mermaid Box comes with the lifestyle accessories you need to live the Ariel-dream, even if the ocean’s far away.
