Do you feel at any moment you could burn out from the stress in your life? Then let me introduce to you six of the best self care subscription boxes available.
These boxes are not all filled with beauty products either. The majority of these boxes are geared towards whole life wellness. Because self care is more than just a beauty routine.
More Than Just A Beauty Routine
Self care for the longest time has been mistaken as just another excuse for women to take time with their beauty routines. It’s also been said, even by women, that self care is somehow selfish.
Here’s how I see it. Self care is more than just putting on a facemask or taking a hot soaking bath in peace. It’s about finding peace of mind.
Self care isn’t only for women either. Every human needs to take the time to enjoy self care every single day.
It’s about taking care of your physical and mental wellbeing so you can be a productive person. For those who believe that taking care of yourself somehow takes away from others, you are mistaken in that thought process.
In fact, chances are pretty high you do partake in self care activities every single day and just haven’t realized it. Do you make sure you drink enough water? Read every night? Watch a favorite TV show? Wash your face and apply hair masks to your hair? Do you exercise, eat healthy, go for walks around your neighborhood?
All of these things are self care, you just haven’t labeled it as such.
Whole Wellness Self Care
Self care is about taking care of your whole self. Your mental wellbeing, physical wellbeing, and for some a spiritual wellbeing.
Maybe you journal to keep track of memories that make you feel good or deal with painful events. Or you use a planner to keep track of your tasks.
You shower with great smelling soaps, do your hair, apply makeup, and slather lotion on your skin.
You read, watch tv, crochet, knit, paint, draw, write, or any other number of hobbies.
Why do you do all of these things on a daily basis? Because it makes you feel good. It clears your mind, boosts your confidence, and allows you to escape into your own little world.
This is self care.
Why You Need Self Care Subscription Boxes
Self care subscription boxes are a great reminder in your busy life to take some time and focus on your needs. Every quarter or every month a box shows up at your door to remind you to take time for self care.
The box is filled with a whole bunch of goodies that will help you to relax and rejuvenate. It’s a little reminder filled with things worth more than you pay for the box each month.

Unplugged Book Box
I love a lot of the book box subscription boxes but this one is a favorite of mine. Starting at $38 a month you get an adult fiction book and a bunch of really great self care items that help you to unplug and unwind.
You get 4-6 bookish self care or novelty products, activities that focus on you, self care and gratitude tools. Plus you get one new young adult or adult fiction book per month.
The box allows you to choose between young adult ($33.25) or adult fiction ($38.00) books when you sign up. It’s a great box for avid readers to find a new book and get some self care in each month.
CoachCrate is an amazing subscription box for those interested in personal growth. The box starts at $40.50 a month and is basically a life coach delivered to your door each month.
You get a book with reading guide. There are 2-4 online coaching videos and a platform to connect and ask question. Then there is 3-6 productivity, relaxation, growth, and well being items focused on the theme of the month.
This is a fantastic box for those who like a little bit of extra life guidance and want to live their best life.
Bath Bevy has monthly and quarterly options starting at $34.95. If you love taking baths this box is for you. Items included are bath bombs, bubble bars, bath salts, body scrubs, handmade soaps and more.
I’m personally a big bath person. The rules for mommy bath time are simple. Unless the house is on fire or a tornado is about to take us out, go bother daddy for whatever you need.
Grab a book and this box and just soak up some peace, quiet, and beautiful scents for about 30 minutes. When it’s all done you feel more relaxed and can rest peacefully that night.
This means you wake up more refreshed and ready to tackle your day with a bit of calm and a little bit more happiness. Your family deserves having a calm and happy mom.
Hygee is a danish lifestyle meaning coziness and happiness. Recently popular this box starts as low as $34.00 a month. It helps you to be happier through humbleness, gratitude, safety, and connecting with loved ones.
There are two different boxes to choose from. The deluxe box has 5-7 handpicked season items from around the world. The standard box only has 4-5 items.
The items are usually based around light, hot drink, and sweet indulgence. So the items are candles, fairy lights, tea, hot cocoa, coffee, biscuits, chocolate and more. Often times it comes with a little item of coziness too like fuzzy socks, slippers, or a shawl.
Subscription Boxes For Self Care
Self care is important for your mind, physical well being, and to de-stress and relax. You cannot pour from an empty cup so it’s important that you make sure yours is filled so you can help others.
These boxes help you to relax, de-stress, and take care of yourself so that you can be a joy for your loved ones. There is no guilt in self care, just the knowledge that it’s ok to live your best life and take care of yourself too.
