Beauty

When you think of subscription boxes, you might think of monthly foodie treats or toys that arrive on your doorstep every month. But what about make-up and skincare products as well?

Food & Drink

Not every food-based subscription box is a baking or cooking kit. In fact, on Cratejoy you can find everything from international snack boxes to a new assortment of tinned fish each month!

Games

Go beyond the games aisle of your local big-box store and have unique and interesting puzzles, board games, and other immersive gameplay shipped directly to your home each month! On Cratejoy, you’ll be able to find new games that you can’t find anywhere else.

Arts & Crafts

Sometimes the hardest part of picking out a new craft or a new hobby is simply deciding which one to choose. With these subscription boxes, you’ll have fun new projects to work on every month, no matter your crafting skill level.

Pets

No matter whether you consider yourself a dog person or a cat person, there is a subscription box designed to show your furry friends exactly how much you love them. These are some of the most unique pet boxes on the planet, designed to bring self-care to the pets in your home.

Travel

Many people haven’t gotten the chance to travel as much as they’d like to within the last few years. Fear not! Now, with these ultimate travel boxes, you can bring the experience of seeking out new adventures into your own living room.
