Subscription boxes have been a growing trend over the past 14 years, and there are hundreds of different options out there from toothbrushes, clothes, and even cars. If you’ve dipped your toes into the subscription box waters, you probably know that receiving your box on your doorstep is a pretty exciting feeling. Whether you subscribe for convenience or you enjoy the thrill of the surprise, there’s a subscription for just about anything you can think of.
From slime to exotic noodles, there are some pretty wild things out there on the internet that you can actually subscribe to. Looking for that perfect last minute holiday gift? Curious about the most unique subscriptions out there? We’re sharing 7 of the wildest subscriptions out there:
1. Slime Time
If you’ve ever thought “man, I just wish I could subscribe to slime”, Kyoki’s Slime subscription box may be everything you’ve always wanted. Starting at just $10.00 a month, you can have this fun craft delivered straight to your door. It’s the perfect subscription for kiddos (and adults who like to channel their inner child). Every “crate” is centered around the Kyoki’s Slime theme of the month. They also include a variety of different slimes from floams, fishbowl slime, and jelly cube slime. Not only do you get some good ole fashion slime, but every crate is packed with lots of fun extras like candy and charms.
Love osteological specimens? Looking to grow your skull collection? Skulls Unlimited’s Monthly Bone Box is the best way to get high quality, 100% natural skulls, claws, teeth, and baculum. The specimens you can expect in your Bonebox will be “A” or “B” quality and might show minor imperfections. How does Skulls Unlimited prepare their bones for their customers? Each specimen is carefully prepared with the use of dermestid beetles and whitened using a chemical process.
You subscribe to your music and your movies, so why not subscribe to your car? With insurance, maintenance, and warranty included in one monthly cost, subscribing to your car can be an easy, pain-free way to get around. It’s also a great way to have a car if you aren’t ready to commit to buying or leasing a vehicle. Plus, with some car subscriptions like Canvas, you can even have your car delivered to you.
Starting at only $20 a month, you can have exotic (yes, exotic) ramen noodles delivered to you. Every month, Exotic Noods offers 4 to 8 different featured flavors. From Tonkotsu, Spicy Seafood, Shio, Miso, and Shoyu, the ramen options are honestly endless. So if you’re looking for the perfect gift for your favorite college student or that ramen addict in your life, look no further!
5. FX Fix
If you are into special effects makeup, FXcrate will make all your scaly and spooky dreams come true. Whether you’re an ammature or a professional artist, this box is an accessible and easy way to get your hands on some great products and learn a new trick or two. Every month, FXcrate sends a variety of different supplies and tools from brushes, prosthetics, body paint, adhesives, and more! Just make sure you jump on it quick though because their boxes tend to sell out quickly.
6. Crime Solver
If you’re obsessed with true crime podcasts and documentaries, the monthly Dispatch subscription box allows you to play detective in real life - from the comfort of your home. You can choose different stories from the “vault” and start to unravel the mystery once you receive your box. Additional clues are revealed with every new box so you can solve the crime (on your own or with friends).
Give the gift of moss this holiday season…. because why not? Every month, you can have a sandwich bag stuffed with a variety of different moss and lichens sent straight to you. This little Etsy shop has been selling Moss for over 12 years now, so you can feel confident that you’ll be getting fantastic quality! If you’re not ready to commit to a year long subscription, you can chat with the owner and set up a plan that works best for you.
Regardless if you’re into moss or osteological specimens, there are so many different subscriptions out there to compliment your interests and lifestyle! Subscriptions are a great way to try out new things, on your terms. Subscription boxes offer both convenience and flexible. They can also save you both money and time!
