There's something for everyone (and every price point); including health-conscious meal kits, fresh beauty picks, and even monthly subscription services that'll deliver your go-to products (think: feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, and razors) to your door without any effort on your part.
Seriously, what better way to kick off the season — full of longer days, warmer weather, and fresh blooms — than with an affordable box of goodies, ranging from beauty, home, tech, and more? We promise, they'll inspire you to give your body (and house!) the care it deserves.
Green Chef, $79/box (includes three two-serving meals)
Now that hibernation season is over, you have no excuses to fill up on hearty (aka mostly unhealthy) comfort meals. With a weekly meal kit from Green Chef, you can make flavor-packed meals in 40 minute tops. Best of all: The kits, which can arrive weekly, biweekly, or monthly, cater to your dietary needs and preferences, no matter if you're testing out the keto diet or are a loyal vegan.
You've cleaned your house; now it's time to do the same with your soul. Subscribe to Moonbox for a "month-long check-up for your soul" — aka crystals, artisan products, a guided meditation, and moon guide. With this box, you can read up on each month's theme and learn how and when to use each product during specific lunar phases so that you can feel at one with nature, the world, and most importantly, yourself.
There's nothing worse than hopping in the shower and realizing that your razor is old, rusty, and totally useless — and it's even worse during sundress season. Instead of having to settle for unwanted razor burn or fuzzy legs this spring, get this nifty kit (which comes equipped with two 5-blade razors) sent straight to your door. Heck, to avoid the last-minute convenience store runs altogether, opt for subsequent cartridge refills every one, two, or three months.

Awake from your winter slumber with a non-stop flow of espresso from Woken Coffee. Unlike other brands on the market, these espresso pods, which are compatible with most home machines, are totally compostable, which means you don't have to feel guilty about brewing your morning caffeine boost.

If your Marie Kondo obsession has inspired you to fill your space with things that spark joy, look no further than Spiritú.

Your goals of exercising and eating right slowly took a turn come February because, well, half-price Valentine's Day chocolate. Baze, a buzzed-about wellness brand, believes the best way to get your health under control is by knowing exactly what nutrients your body is craving. Take its easy-to-use blood test right at home, send it in, and then you'll be sent a 4-week supply of daily vitamins based on your deficiencies. That way you're not wandering around the vitamin aisles — or worse, taking something that your body doesn't need.
Okay, so no one enjoys going to the store to buy toothpaste. Even worse, no one likes running out of toothpaste (especially before a big meeting or date night). With Hello, you can get as many natural toothpastes, mouthwashes, and toothbrushes you, your S.O., or your family need to be delivered to your door every one, two, or three months. An added bonus: They'll throw in a free toothbrush for every tube purchased.
International Women's Day inspired you to take charge of your life, career, relationship, and hey, even your cycle.

Tailor the box to your flow: Pick from the one, three, six, or twelve month option.
Since you'll want to go sans makeup once the weather warms up, opt for a monthly fulfillment of this must-have eye cream — it noticeably reduces dark circles, under eye wrinkles, and (not-so-designer) bags. Sure, you can buy it at a flat rate of $55... or you can save $20 by subscribing to monthly refills (we'll take the latter).
