Must-Have Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes have become a popular craze within the past few years. Customers are finding products they love from an assortment of goodies companies send to them each month at discounted prices. Whether you’re interested in fashion, beauty, cooking, fitness, there is a subscription box out there for you and Valley has listed some favorites below!


$15.00/month + Free Shipping

State College native, Chloe Alpert, created a luxury soap company due to her and her mother’s need for products that would help their sensitive skin. “89 percent of the soap on the market today is a white rectangle or oval,” says Alpert, “There’s really nothing out there that’s different or exciting.” Alpert focuses on products that actually work, but are also made of quality ingredients, smell and look amazing, and are accessible for all. She even adds that with 50 percent of her customers being male, her products really are for everyone. Each soap product is free of artificial preservatives and is made with glycerin, a natural exfoliant with strong moisturizing properties. Customers can sign up to receive two bars of soap and a free gift each month, or subscribe to individual soap bars so they never run out!

Book of the Month


Are you ever in the mood to read, but don’t quite know which book to pick up next? Book of the Month can solve your problem! Each month, a group of five judges will each pick a favorite book and provide their own review of the story and why you should read it. One of the books will be placed in your box and you can either choose to receive this pre-selected option, or pick a different one from the month’s selections. There’s even a surprise celebrity curator each month, such as Ellie Kemper or Craig Ferguson, that makes a recommendation. As a member, you will also have access to discounted book prices and special promotions. Still unsure? You can try their 1-Month Free trial!


$11.99/month + First box is free

For all of the foodies out there, Graze subscription box is for you. Every month, a box of healthy snack foods can be sent right to your door. Out of 100 snack options, members can choose which ones they enjoy and Graze will hand-select items for your box that ships straight to you. The best part? All of the snacks are non-GMO and are free of artificial flavoring, high fructose corn syrup, and trans fats, making it easy to stay healthy while also snacking on delicious options. Graze is also devoted to giving back and has created their own farming school in Uganda where they teach students to grow their own foods and sell them at local markets. Eating healthy while also helping others has never been so easy.

Dollar Shave Club

$6.00/month for 4-blade razors

Not only does shaving feel like a hassle for most of us, but it can also be an expensive chore. Instead of purchasing an overpriced pack of razor blades every month, most of us will continue to use blades until they become too dull. With the Dollar Shave Club, customers can choose between 3 razor plans, each varying in the amount of blades they contain. It all comes down to how close of a shave you need! Have them shipped monthly and you’ll have enough blades to have a precise shave every time without overuse. The subscription even sends you products such as shave creams or a repair serum in order to prevent razor burn or ingrown hairs.
