Three subscription boxes for women

I think that it is safe to say that subscription boxes are one of the best things ever invented and, due to their popularity, you can get almost any type of subscription box – from period products to wine – delivered to your door each month. 

I want to share and explore three boxes with you, each very different and packed to the brim with a range of great quality products, and each perfect for women looking to treat themselves to something special every month.

1. LunaBoxNew on the scene, LunaBox is “a box that makes that time of the month a little easier”. Filled with all sorts of locally sourced products, sweet treats and, of course, your choice of sanitary products, LunaBox provides its subscribers with everything they need to get through all things PMS and period-related.

2. Lingerie Letters. Partial to luxurious, cheeky, sexy and gorgeous lingerie? Lingerie Letters is a fantastic subscription service that delivers a beautiful, high-quality pair of designer pants (discreetly, of course) right to your door. Making it the “EASIEST (and most fun) way to top up your lingerie drawers”. Every month, Lingerie Letters will ensure that you feel absolutely gorgeous in your knickers. Think lace, mesh, floral and more! P.s. you can also choose whether you want to receive a thong or a brief each month (there is also an option to surprise yourself, where they will alternate between the two).

Because we all need a little comfort. Cue the perfect monthly delivery >> xxP.S. You're…

3. The Ooh Box. Hello, I’m Claire, and I am a wine-o-holic. Love wine (and food) as much as I do? Then you The Ooh Box is perfect for you. Filled with eight tasty items, including only the finest wines, sweet treats and great eats, this box is one you won’t want to share with your friends and family. Or with anyone for that matter.

To be honest, this list is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the many subscription boxes available in South Africa. The three mentioned above are the ones that caught my eye and I would choose to show up on my doorstep each month!

Do you subscribe to any of the boxes above? Or do you have a completely different one to share. Let me know in the comment section down below.

      Hi Coral.

      For a wine box, I would recommend the Ooh! Box, which you can purchase here:
      And, regarding a beauty box, I would recommend something like Little Black bag, which you can purchase here: Unfortunately, SA doesn’t have – as far as I know – a dedicated make up subscription box, and a lot of people resort to buying beauty boxes from overseas and having them sent here.

      I hope this helps and thank you for your comment!
