The Best Subscription Boxes for Couples
There are so many subscription boxes out there, and although not many advertise that they can be used for both men and women (specifically couples), they totally can. Whether you’re looking for a nice way to treat your significant other or searching for something you two can do together, it’s time to get creative. Here are 13 subscription boxes the two of you can share.
If you and your partner aren’t the best cooks and are tired of eating out, you should give HelloFresh a try. HelloFresh is a meal delivery service that provides recipes and pre-packaged ingredients to you—it cuts the hassle of having to go to the grocery store or a restaurant.
HelloFresh can be a great way to spend quality time with your partner by cooking together each night. If you have busy schedules this could be your one time to come together and enjoy a delicious meal you’ve both had a hand in making. Also, it’ll actually save you money and time you’d usually spend at the grocery store—hard to beat that.
This box is for the fashion-forward couple. While you’ll both have to have your own subscription, you can both receive modern, trendy clothing that matches your style each month. You can spend time together trying on the clothes and deciding which ones (if not all) you want to keep. This box is a little pricey, but that’s to be expected if you’re getting high-quality, personalized clothing—although the starting price is just $20, you have to pay for each piece of clothing you want to keep.
The men and women subscriptions are basically the same. You’ll take a short survey—which will ask what brands you like, style you have, and your measurements—that will allow your stylist to choose items that match your unique style. Then, on your chosen date, your boxes will arrive at your door. Let the living room fashion shows begin!
Razors can get expensive and inconvenient, especially if you have to go to the store at least once a month to stock up on cheap ones. If you and your significant other both use non-electric razors, Dollar Shave Club is the solution to your problem. They’ll send you two, four, or six blades each month (depending on your plan) so you don’t have to waste your time or money.

Although this isn’t a romance box, it sure does help with convenience. Of course, not all plans are actually a dollar, but if you think about how much you both spend combined on razors, I bet it’s more than $9 a month.
My mom got a cheese of the month subscription for my dad last Christmas and he absolutely loved it. My parents are big into wine, so every night they would sit down, wine glasses in hand, and sample the cheese for that month. For them, it was all about having a reason to spend time together after a long day at work. They bonded over mutual likes and dislikes—and trust me, there were some stinky cheeses.
This subscription box would be a great way to dip your toes into wine and cheese; or you could even have friends over once a month to sample your box—the possibilities are endless.
Raw Spice Bar is a great subscription box for couples who like to cook together. Sometimes we get stuck making the same recipes over and over again, and that’s just boring. With this subscription box, you’ll get three flavors you can add to virtually any recipe to spice things up (pun intended).
One of my favorite things about this box, besides the fact that it opens you up to new flavor combinations, is that they’re extremely allergy-conscious. So if you’re gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, or paleo—you name it—they have a package for you. It’s hard to have adventurous meals when you’re limited on what you can eat, but this box allows anyone to have that freedom.
When people hear “BirchBox,” most of the time they think about the makeup and beauty subscription box—but that’s not all they have to offer. If your significant other likes cologne, helpful gadgets, and testing out grooming products, BirchBox Man is right for him. You can both enjoy trying new products for the first time with your individual Birchbox boxes. You can make things fun by trying to test them all out at once or letting your partner pick random items from your box that you have to use that day.

No matter how you choose to use these boxes, you definitely won’t regret it. You can’t go to the store and get yourself five new makeup products for yourself, a razor for him, shaving cream, cologne, headphones, and whatever else comes in your BirchBox for just $20.
Eventually, sitting on the couch eating takeout and watching Netflix with your significant other is going to get old—and when it does, UnBox Love will be there to spice things up. With this subscription box, you’ll enjoy interesting, creative date nights with your partner.
Not only will you have fun, but you’ll also be growing together by sharing new experiences and trying new things. They focus on ways to connect in your relationship—and that means putting the phone down and having real conversation. For just $39 a month, you’ll make invaluable memories that’ll last a lifetime.

For the coffee-loving couple, you can’t beat MistoBox—Misto sends you new, gourmet coffee samples each month. You can sit together, coffee cups in hand, and enjoy watching the sun rise or having breakfast at the table together; practically anything can be done while enjoying a cup of joe.

The best part about Misto is that they provide you with a month’s supply of coffee, so you don’t have to worry about running to the store when you run out—or, even worse, the store not having your special blend that day. It’s also so much cheaper than buying coffee from a cafe every morning.
