True health and happiness begin and end with self care. Sitting down with a good book, relaxing in a hot bath, or actively working towards a tangible goal are all simple ways one can turn down the stresses of everyday life and enjoy the moment. To make taking care of oneself a little easier, we’ve found what we believe to be the 10 best subscription boxes for promoting self care.
From $14.99 / month
“Go big and stay home” — that’s the motto of the Introverts Retreat monthly subscription box.

- grown-up coloring books
- high-end snacks
- puzzles, and more.
