I love subscription boxes. They’re a great way to get a monthly treat, they have fantastic recommend a friend offers, some of which are included in this post and they give you a chance to try something new. It’s like discovering new tastes, trends and products all without having to do the real research.
There are some amazing subscription boxes for women, parents, men and children here in the UK and if you want to try something new then I can guarantee there will be a subscription box perfect for you. They also make a really lovely gift for friends and family who like a little surprise or who can’t decide what they want.
Subscription Services for Food Lovers
I love food and I love that there are a great range of different ways to try new food, new recipes and have new culinary experiences. Whether you want to try new products or create a delicious meal or even save a bit on your food shopping and more importantly cutting down on food wastage there is a foodie subscription box just for you.
I choose to get my Simply Cook box every month but you can get it a lot more frequently if you would like to. There is a free app where you can select your recipes and they come with handy recipe cards, shopping lists and the key flavours to making delicious, restaurant quality meals. This doesn’t include food but it does include oils, spice blends, seasonings and flavours to really enhance your cooking. For every friend you recommend that signs up you earn one free box. Simply Cook is a really affordable way to try some new recipes. You can read my full review of Simply Cook here.
I love Gousto, it’s a fantastic service and I choose to get two meals to feed 2/3 people once a month on a Friday. It really is that precise. Gousto boxes come fully insulated and chilled and are top quality organic ingredients. You can check out some of the meals we made last month. Everything is fresh and is exactly the right quantity for the meals you want to prepare. The recipes change regularly so you always have a chance to try something new and you can rate and review each meal you make. As one of my readers you can save 50% on your first two boxes with Gousto.
Each friend you recommend gets 50% off their first two boxes and you are awarded with £15 credit, a great way to get free food.
We get a weekly box of sweet treats for just £3.99 including postage. It’s handy having sweets delivered to your door and it’s a nice little treat for the whole family to enjoy with a film on a Friday night. You can get your first Treats box for just £2.49.
Beauty Subscription Boxes
I remember when I first got Glossybox I was a new mum. I knew nothing about beauty trends or what products I might like. I didn’t even wear foundation back in those days, and if I did it was a shade that didn’t really match my skin tone. I found so many products I love and still use today thanks to Glossybox and with the products I didn’t feel like trying I’ve been able to give to my sister who has really enjoyed using them. Glossybox send you five products each month for around £13 including postage however you can get 50% off your first box. You can complete surveys recommending products and inviting friends to earn Glossydots too and once you earn 1000 Glossydots you get a free box. I think that’s a great incentive! You can sign up and get 50% off your first Glossybox here.
Love Me Beauty
Love Me Beauty is a little different as you get to shop the products you want to buy. I love that it comes in a pretty little cosmetics bag too. You can read my full review of Love me Beauty or you can get up to 3 free beauty treats, when you quote code KAYLE6054706 at checkout.
Birch Box is similar to Glossybox where you can get a surprise box of treats every month.

Subscription Box for Couples
Just Us Box
I loved our Just Us box. It was the perfect way to create a date night. We had a lot of fun with it and it came with some really nice treats. It’s so important to spend time together and have a night in, or a night out doing something fun as a couple. You can read my full Just Us Box review and see what we got here.
Subscription Services for Book Lovers
I love Audiobooks and Audible is a great one for new releases. You pay £7.99 and get one credit each month but that credit can be redeemed against books that are £35 so it’s a real bargain. Plus you can get a free credit and free 30 day trial and once a book is downloaded you keep it forever, even if you cancel your subscription. Read my full Audible review here or sign up for your free 30 day trial and claim your first free audiobook.
BookBeat is another one for audiobooks but with a monthly fee of around £15 however you can listen to so many books as many times as you like, over and over again. The choice is great and their are some modern best sellers and some fantastic classics. You can read my full BookBeat review here.
