To say the market on subscription boxes took off would be a massive understatement. An idea that started with two Harvard grads (that’d be Birchbox) has blossomed into an entire industry complete with dedicated review websites, live “unboxings,” and more. Today, if you can think of a subscription box idea it probably already exists.

Since you can’t possibly think of everything, though, we’re here to help. Below are six different subscription box services that are so genius you’ll wonder why you didn’t come up with the idea yourself.

subscription boxes you need
Curd Box

Curd Box, $49.95/month

If the concept of having gourmet cheeses shipped to your door monthly doesn’t move you, we don’t know what will. Curd Box is a subscription delivery service built specifically with foodies in mind, and it’s downright brilliant. Each box contains three to five artisan cheeses along with perfect pairings—think honey, crackers, nuts, olives—along with wine recommendations. You’ll be salivating when you see this box of deliciousness arrive on your doorstep each month.

Calm Box

The Calm Box, $29.99 per month

Feeling stressed? Welcome to the ever-growing club. The Calmbox is here to help you chill out, refocus, and find balance in your life. Each monthly delivery contains six to eight items that focus on meditation, stress relief, and mindfulness—think personal care items, books and journals, candles, and aromatherapy. The goal is to engage your mind and body in a meaningful, purposeful way. Another bonus is that a portion of proceeds are donated to charity; The Calmbox has worked with over 50 charities to date. And what’s better than helping humanity while you meditate?

Moon Cycle Bakery Box

Moon Cycle Bakery, $34 per month

You know what also comes on a monthly basis? Your period. Why not treat yourself during that time of the month with a curation of baked goods that contain replenishing micronutrients that are typically depleted throughout your menstrual cycle? With an emphasis on clinical research, Moon Cycle Bakery makes tasty goodies that help nourish your body. You get two treats per phase of your cycle for a total of eight treats per month.

The Fit Boxx, $54 per month

Whether you’re all about yoga, kickboxing, marathons, or HIIT, The Fit Boxx is all about making your fitness journey more fun. Each monthly box contains cool new gear that supports your workouts, trendy apparel, and nutritional items and supplements. Think of it as a way to treat yourself for sweating hard and/or a motivator to keep on moving.

Imperfect Foods, Price Varies

Have you ever noticed how grocery store produce almost looks too perfect? That’s not by accident. Fruits, veggies, and herbs are carefully picked and displayed because, well, people don’t usually buy stuff that’s less than pretty. The Imperfect Foods subscription box takes all that perfectly fresh, edible, nutritious— yet ugly—produce and sends it right to your doorstep. Boxes also contain prepackaged items from sustainable, eco-conscious, animal-conscious brands. You curate the monthly shipment yourself, so prices vary depending on your needs each month.

Hemp Crate, $49.99 per month

CBD is here to stay, as evidenced by the bajillion brands who specialize in CBD-infused products. Hemp Crate is all about helping you discover new products, and they have three different crate types to choose from. There’s the “Furry Friends” crate (perfect for pet parents), the “Health & Wellness” crate (full of self-care items), and the “Hempa the Explorer” crate (a mixed assortment). There’s an additional smaller crate, “Tincture ‘N Treat,” which contains a CBD tincture and an additional edible item for $29.99/month.
