We’ve found the best subscription boxes from around the world, including makeup, clothes, collectibles, and even mystery boxes that are worth ordering!
I love getting stuff in the mail. There’s something exciting about seeing your name on a parcel – it’s this little thing, meant just for you. And they’re great, as long as it’s in a package or a box. As all adults will attest to, little envelopes usually means bills. A lot less fun, and I often wish they were addressed to someone else instead.
So if you’re looking for some of those cheap mail thrills, come join me with my obsession with subscription boxes! What’s a subscription box, you ask? It’s a recurring delivery of curated products every month (or quarter) and there’s really a subscription box for everything.
To get you started, here are 7 of the best subscription boxes from around the world, with a little something for everybody:
1. LiveGlam: For The Beauty Gurus Who Love US-Exclusive Makeup
Where to subscribe: LiveGlam MorpheMe Subscription Box
Why you’ll love LiveGlam’s subscription box: When I worked in Sephora, I lost count of just how many patrons would ask where the Morphe counter was located. The short answer? I don’t know – because there isn’t one at all! Despite Morphe’s meteoric rise to popularity, they have yet to reach our sunny shores.
So if you’re keen on getting your hands on those elusive brushes (Singapore seems flush with fakes), look no further. Each month contains different themes, and they allow you to switch out your box for a past theme if you’re not really feeling the latest one. The longer you subscribe, the cheaper it gets per box. Also, LiveGlam throws in extra goodies when you subscribe for 6 months or more.
|1 month||US$19.99 (~S$28.30)|
|6 months||US$109.99 (~S$155.40)|
|12 months||US$219.99 (~S$310.90)|
2. Hagrid’s Trunk: For The Diehard Potterheads Who Adore Magic
Where to subscribe: Hagrid’s Trunk Subscription Box
Why you’ll love Hagrid’s Trunk: Any Potterhead can attest to the fact that they peered out the window on the night of their 11th birthday, hoping that their Hogwarts letter would arrive – never mind that we live in Singapore and would still have to catch a plane. If you’ve lived with that hope, I’m sorry. We can’t get you into Hogwarts. But this is probably the next best thing.
Say accio to exclusive, handmade, Harry Potter-themed goodness. Hagrid’s Trunk is a subscription box containing goodies like potions, themed candles, tee shirts, and other collectibles. If that sounds like a bit much, Hagrid’s Trunk come in different tiers, so you can choose exactly how many wizardry wares you want. All delivered by owl, because how else would you deliver it?
|Hagrid’s Candle||£8.99 (~S$15.80)|
|Hagrid’s Bundle||£16.99 (~S$29.80)|
|Hagrid’s Trunk||£22.99 (~S$40.30)|
Note: Hagrid’s Trunk has temporarily stopped taking orders due to COVID-19. We hope they’ll be back soon! 😢
3. Pusheen Box: For Pusheen Fans Who Can’t Get Enough Pusheen
Where to subscribe: Pusheen Subscription Box
Why you’ll love Pusheen Box: You know about Pusheen. The pudgy little grey cat has taken the internet by storm for the last decade since her launch. With her round body and adorable little legs, Pusheen is the animated darling of cat lovers. She might even be a little nicer than your own cat!
Each box is chock full of exclusive Pusheen merchandise that isn’t available for sale outside of these subscription boxes. This is one of those subscriptions that are a little bit of a mystery. You won’t know what you’re getting till you receive your box, which adds to the fun!
Unlike other subscription boxes, these are delivered seasonally, so that’s four times a year instead of monthly. They’re also themed after the seasons, with a Summer, Fall, Spring, and Winter box. It seems Pusheen is in season all year round!
|Quarterly Plan||US$43.95 (~S$62.10)|

4. Pipsticks: For Those Who Enjoy Journalling & Stickers
Where to subscribe: Pipsticks Subscription Box
Why you’ll love Pipsticks: We all remember the Tumblr sticker phase right? My angsty teenage self put them on everything. My phone, my computer, my notebooks. Nothing was spared. Everything had to be covered in stickers, because things without them were too boring.
If, like me, you never quite got over your sticker obsession, you’ll adore Pipsticks. Almost all their stickers are designed exclusively, which means you won’t find them anywhere else!
If you subscribe to the Pro Club, you get 15 sheets of Pipsticks stickers, a paper goodie, and a reusable holographic pouch every month. You also get 5% off all online store purchases!
