So Birchbox, when I first read about it, seemed pretty amazing to me. What a great idea, I thought to myself. And myself agreed.
Because I think that is such an awesome little idea there, I have decided to do a roundup of different companies that offer a similar service; there are so many cool ones cropping up over the internet. And I like to share. I'm generous like that.
So here is the one that started it all (at least for me)- Birchbox.
Another set of goodies delivered right to your door every month or so comes from Umba Box. With this company, you get "Handmade Surprises Every Month." If you sign up for an Umba Box, you can expect to receive one to three handmade items from different artists each month. The amount of items you receive depends on the value of the pieces; they promise at least a $25 value every month. This box is perfect for those out searching for handmade products from real artists.

BeautyBar.com created Sample Society, which offers a $15 monthly subscription that will get you 5 deluxe sized samples from brands like Stila and Murad. One of their selling points is that besides the 5 deluxe samples, you get to apply your $15 toward a $50 purchase at Beauty Bar.
Another great monthly subscription service is offered by Olive Box. For $25 a month (plus s&H), you get a bevy of carefully curated stationery and paper products from both up and coming companies and more established ones like Rifle Paper Company.
There are monthly subscription services for men, for creative kids, for parents. for foodies... The list goes on and there are plenty of choices out there!
Let me know if you subscribe to any of these, or if you plan to! I love me some samples, so I definitely see one of these making its way to my house in the near future!
