With midterms right around the corner, students are going to strapped for time and resources, and they might just be wishing for a care package from Mom and Dad.
However, the latest trend as of late is subscription boxes – themed monthly subscription services that deliver goods to you for a low cost.
Graze is a healthy snack service where you select the snacks you would enjoy most and they send it to your work or home. It’s perfect for adventurous snackers and health food nuts. The service specializes in health reinventions of classic foods such as strawberry shortcake and peach cobbler. My friend Dyhanara Rios used the service in the past and enjoyed the snacks she received.
“Graze is a unique snack box to mail to yourself or a friend,” Dyhanara Rios said. “The standard box has four different treats to try. Southern BBQ Pistachios and Cherries and Berries were among my favorites.”
If you’re a dog lover and you know it, check out the BarkBox. The monthly service delivers dog toys and treats for every pup. You just specify your dog’s size, choose between a variety of month plans, and you’re good to go!
3) PijonBox Pijon is specifically for college students. It provides snacks, health and beauty essentials, household supplies, and other fun gifts geared for the college crowd. The boxes are customizable according to gender: they have male, female and gender-neutral options.
4) Birchbox Birchbox, one of the first subscription box services, is a beauty, lifestyle and grooming box for both men and women. The service provides top-notch products to its subscribers.
Shaving sucks. Which is why this box service exists. A service geared for men, the service includes three varieties of shaving blades. The service also provides shave butter, post shave and wipes. You might have seen this commercial.
The world of subscription boxes is vast and wide, so don’t be afraid to dip a toe into the waters. With boxes like these, you will be charged up right up to finals!
