Subscription to Self-Care
In the busyness of life, how often do you forget to attend to your self-care needs?
What if you could get a subscription to self-care?
Are you even too busy to plan ahead different activities for fun or schedule in the time to look after you?
I have heard from so many people that self-care is placed on the sidelines as a backup plan rather than a winning play. (Not sure why I am trying sports analogies…)
Keep reading on if you are curious of how to get a subscription to self-care and some of the options!

I understand how easy it is to forget self-care, so I was thrilled when I came to the realization that I could have a regular reminder that I deserved some time for myself. Additionally, I enjoy getting gifts, but often forget to treat myself.
So, I utilize my own method, which may resonate with you and it is through a subscription for self-care. It includes gifts and time for me to enjoy a moment!
Surprisingly it is not a subscription to an email list or app that gives notifications for self-care reminders. We are going old school and counting on delivery companies to bring the message.
I’m sure you have come across advertisements for subscriptions for goodies and if not, here is a description. Dependent on the company, you can get a subscription to a variety of items that can come either monthly or seasonally.
Although this description is quite vague, the options I will be writing about will give you more details.

What should you subscribe to?
Below are some options you may be interested in checking out! I’ve added some links at the bottom of each description of ones that I think are pretty cool. Also, most deliver to both the USA and Canada, plus a some are a little more worldwide.
If you are a person who doesn’t like to receive a gift without giving, then this is a great option for you!
Some companies focus specifically on finding products for their subscription boxes that are ethically sourced and support communities around the world. In many cases, proceeds go to important global causes.
Items can vary, but from what I’ve seen there are beauty product, clothes, self-care goodies, and other cute household items.

Now I know it may sound a little silly, but wouldn’t it be nice for a self-care subscription being something you already enjoy?
My thoughts go directly to ordering a magazine that reflects things you love, whether hunting, decorating, quilting, make-up, etc. You could always take it one step further and order a subscription to items being shipped to your door! There are so many options for people including campers and crafters.
This is a great way to have something new and fun pop up that you may have never thought about related to your hobby or interest!
Speaking of crafts, if you are interested in the idea of regularly delivered craft ideas and supplies, click the following link to one with many options!
If you like to play with new make-up looks, why not have some products just show up at your door?
I know that purchasing make-up can be a super personal experience, but some options include detailed questionnaires to try and match your needs. Getting a surprise is something I enjoy and am sure others feel the same.
Sometimes there are just samples, or you can upgrade to full sized products. Even if make-up isn’t your thing, sometimes you can just ask for the creams, serums and other beauty products.
Additionally, if you DO love something, you can get it discounted on future subscription days.
Maybe check out a monthly or bimonthly beauty care subscription that I think is super amazing!
I don’t know about anyone else, but I love a fresh pair of socks. What do I love even more? A colourful pair of socks as a surprise gift.
There are sock subscriptions where you get 1 to 2 pairs of socks every month for however long you want! Even better, the colours and designs are usually a surprise.
Looking forward to something warm and fuzzy is definitely a form of self-care. Brighten your day by taking a moment to open a package of fun socks.
Maybe it is time to consider a sock subscription that rocks!
Full disclosure: I am horrible at styling myself. Because that is true, I am stoked that there are clothing options for subscription boxes.
Of course, we all have our own preferences of what we wear, so it’s a good thing you can go on a search to find the right one for you! Even some of the boxes that include a variety of things can have some stylish items.
Especially in smaller communities, it is hard to access luxury clothing items. Why not check out a seasonal clothing subscription box?
I love trying different teas and coffees. Did you know you could get a subscription box to remind you it’s time to try something new?
Because I never really know what I am looking for, I miss out on new hot drink options. Maybe you enjoy a warm cup in the morning or evening, so the goodies in the subscription box is a gift that keeps on giving!

What about Tea?
Sometimes convenience IS a piece of self-care. I love that there are so many options out there to suit the needs of everyone when it comes to meal boxes. Vegan? Family? Single Person? Allergies? Get to googling to find the best option for you!
Certain ones are more elaborate than others which include portioned ingredients and recipes. Others are just some locally sourced products and I am obviously a huge fan of this! Whether a garden share or animal products, farmers are appreciative of the support of their community.
Maybe you do not need full meals or are particular in your food choices. On the other hand, maybe you enjoy experimenting with some fun snacks!
Imagine having a night to yourself where you can taste test a bunch of different goodies you never considered grabbing at the grocery store! There are many, many, many options!
I’ve seen local snacks, snacks from around the world, dietary specific snacks, candy, there are even ones for sauces! This is an opportunity to become curious about new foods and mindfully stimulate your tastebuds!
Check out some different snack subscription boxes!
Because there are so many options, you can usually find something within your budget. I even have a specific spot in my budget to accommodate a few subscriptions for self-care in my life.
I am filled with joy when a new package arrives, and I get an opportunity to rip through the tape to reveal my additional fun.
It is the simple things in life that spark some happiness, and this is just one of those things I do not want to miss! So, I schedule my self-care by not having to think about it and just get to receive a regular gift to myself.
