Most Popular Subscription Boxes By State
Wondering what the most popular subscriptions boxes are? Are you looking to sign up for a workout clothes subscription box or maybe a meal plan subscription? Maybe you were one of the nearly 42 million Americans that visited a subscription box website in 2018. Perhaps you were shopping for an experiential gift to give for the holidays and wanted to figure out the best and most popular subscription boxes to give. Or perhaps you received one yourself and wanted to learn more about what a subscription box service can do for you.
What are subscription box services
Not familiar with the term subscription box? Perhaps you’re more familiar with these brand names instead. These are all big players in the subscription box landscape. These are also some of the most popular subscription boxes overall:
Basically, a subscription box is just like a magazine subscription. Except instead of getting a magazine on a regular basis, you receive whatever niche products the company is selling.
So, for example, with Blue Apron, you get a meal kit or meal plan subscription. With Stitch Fix you get personal clothing from a women’s clothing stylist, a men’s clothing stylist or a stylist for children’s clothing. With Dollar Shave Club, well, you get a box of razor heads among other shaving accessories.
Who signs up for subscription box services
The people who sign up for subscription box services are those looking for conveniences. According to McKinsey & Company researchers, subscribers are millennials and GenXers. Many live in urban areas and have good incomes. Sixty percent of them are women. Many already subscribe to streaming media services, such as Netflix. These folks are used to paying a monthly fee for a convenience or even a splurge.
While most subscription box users have only two subscriptions, more than one-third have three or more regular subscription services coming to their homes. Interestingly, even though the lion’s share of subscribers are female (as mentioned above), men are the ones most likely to be getting multiple subscription boxes. McKinsey says 42 percent of men (compared with 28 percent of women) have three or more active subscriptions.
My husband and I are GenXers and currently have many active subscriptions. These include Dollar Shave Club, Netflix, Stitch Fix, Trunk Club and MM.LaFleur. (Here’s my review of Stitch Fix vs. Trunk Club vs. MM.LaFleur.) At one time we also subscribed to multiple meal kit delivery services, including HelloFresh and Blue Apron. We also subscribe to Filter Easy, which sends us new air filters each month. Yeah, not the sexiest of subscription services but practical as all get out. Now I always know that my house will have clean air because I remember to change my air filters regularly.
Most popular subscription boxes and services
The most popular of these services–with 55 percent of the market–fall under the category of curation subscriptions. Here is how McKinsey describes these services:
“Curation subscriptions seek to surprise and delight by providing new items or highly personalized experiences in categories such as apparel, beauty, and food.”
FYI, of the subscription boxes we receive, all but Netflix and Dollar Shave Club count as curation subscriptions. Yes, we delight in receiving new, unexpected items of clothing or meals to prepare.
Even though McKinsey found that a large portion of subscription box lovers live in urban areas, the truth is they live everywhere in the United States. In fact, Empire Today, the flooring company, recently set out to determine where subscription box users live and which services are the most popular in each state.
Description of these popular subscription boxes
Before I get into the state-by-state list, here is an alphabetical list of the subscription boxes that have taken the top spot. I’m doing this for you and for me.
Because I love the notion of subscription boxes. I love using them for meal prep or to round out my wardrobe. Maybe you’ve been looking for new subscription boxes to try. What better way to find new ones than to learn what your neighbors and fellow state residents might be getting.
Like you I’m getting to learn about new-to-me popular subscription boxes. Like Brick Loot, Graze and PupBox. I’ve never heard of these companies–which, respectively sell LEGOs and other brick-related products, curated snacks and toys, treats and content for new puppy owners.
Who knows? I might just have to sign up for these new ones out for my own shopping. Now onto the list of subscription box companies that are in the top spots, plus a brief description about them. After that, the state-by-state list so you can see what your friends and neighbors are subscribing to.
Top popular subscription boxes in alphabetical order
It’s important to note that the phrase subscription box has become kind of generic. And many of the companies mentioned below are not bona fide subscriptions, per se. That is, they don’t charge you a monthly fee and automatically send you a box, whether you want it or not. You choose when you want to receive products, you pay a one-time fee with each shipment, such as a styling fee, and you pay for only the items you want to keep.
BarkBox is a monthly subscription service of toys, treats and a chew delivered to your doorstep! My dogs Oscar and Sadie have loved their subscription to Bark Box. Our only challenge is when we received a few toys but both dogs decide they want the same new toy. I guess that’s a real first world dog problem, huh?
2. Basic Man
I’d never heard about Basic Man until writing this post, but I’m loving them so much. Each month, Basic Man sends a t-shirt, boxer-briefs and socks, for just $19.99. So it’s an underwear subscription box. No more panicked, last-minute trips to the store when you’re out of underwear. Yeah, you should be doing your laundry more regularly but let’s be honest–sometimes life gets in the way. I might even say that Basic Man is mom approved, because you’ll always have clean underwear! The only downside? T-shirt sizes don’t come in tall, which if you’ve read my reviews of men’s online styling services, is an issue my husband (and other tall men) face regularly with these subscription boxes.
Battlbox is a monthly subscription for hand-picked outdoor, survival, EDC (everyday carry), and other cool gear. It is a unique subscription box service that is marketed towards the avid outdoorsman, the hunter, the survivalist, or serviceman. Right now you can save 10% off all products when you use code BBSAVENOW.
4. Birchbox/Birchbox Man
Birchbox is pretty much the original curation subscription box. It started almost 10 years ago when two beauty product lovers got together to share their love with other women who dig beauty samples. It’s one of the reasons I love shopping at Sephora–free beauty samples. With Birchbox you get these free samples on a regular basis. Two years later they started Birchbox Men so guys could get in on the love of personal care products.
5. Blue Apron
Blue Apron is one of the original meal kit delivery services. Since Blue Apron recently partnered with Weight Watchers to offer lower calorie meal options, I’m interested in trying it out again. My biggest concern when we first tried Blue Apron was the nutritional content of the meals. Even so, the meals we made with Blue Apron were some of the most delicious I’d ever served my family. Right now, you can get $40 off your first two Blue Apron boxes.
Bombfell is a men’s clothing styling service and subscription box that offers well-known brands and a range of men’s sizes. When I was writing my popular blog post that was reviewing men’s styling services, it was one of the only companies that stocked clothing in my husband’s big-and-tall size. So clearly it’s become one of his favorite subscription services. He’s loved nearly everything that Bombfell has sent to him, and it’s helped him take his wardrobe to a new level. Best of all it’s convenient and worth every penny.
When it comes to monthly makeup subscription boxes, in my opinion BoxyCharm is a fuller-sized version of makeup than Birchbox. In other words, it’s a monthly box filled with four to five full-size beauty items. I recently had a BoxyCharm box sent to me as a gift. It included makeup from Tarte, a brand I might buy at Sephora, and KatVonD. BoxyCharm says that each box has a minimum value of $100. BoxyCharm also offers online tips and tutorials on how to best use and enjoy the items you receive.
8. Brick Loot
Oh, wow, LEGO fans rejoice. Brick Loot is a subscription box for the ultimate LEGO and brick fans. A nine-year-old boy from Chicago created it. These days, when you sign up, you’ll receive a monthly box filled with custom LEGO kits, LEGO Minifigures and other brick-related items.
9. Bullymake Box
The Bullymake Box is geared towards dog owners that have powerful chewers. It sends tough and durable toys for dogs. All the toys are Made in the USA and come with a 14-day durability guarantee.
10. Butcher Box
ButcherBox is a popular source for meat. Its offerings include grass-fed & grass-finished beef, free-range organic chicken, and heritage-breed pork. Meat is delivered via subscription on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. ButcherBox carefully curates the finest selection of cuts. ButcherBox makes it a breeze to choose your own meat based on what you plan to cook or eat in the coming weeks and days. It’s a great option if you’re eating Keto these days. ButcherBox also has seafood. In fact, if you join ButcherBox today, you’ll get two pounds of Wild Alaskan Salmon free! Free salmon? Sign me up!

Dinnerly markets itself as the most affordable meal delivery service on the market. Servings cost $4.99 per person. It describes itself as a service that offers unfussy, affordable weeknight cooking.
16. Dollar Shave Club
We’ve been loyal customers of Dollar Shave Club for years now. We love that we get a monthly supply of high-quality razors for a low amount of money. Yes, you really can get razors for just $1. We actually upgraded to, OMG, $2 per month for four razor heads. It’s way cheaper than what we could get at a traditional drugstore.
My college student introduced me to FabFitFun, the quarterly, surprise, curated box. Here is how FabFitFun describes itself: “FabFitFun Box. Beauty, Wellness, Fitness, and Fashion finds for only $49.99.” In each box you’re likely to get at least one piece from each niche.

Hollywood star Sarah Michelle Gellar is one of the co-founders of Foodstirs. It offers baking kits and mixes for sale online, by subscription. The kits contain only organic and non-GMO ingredients and are intended to be “kid-friendly” to prepare. For someone who loves to bake, this sounds like an awesome subscription box service to sign up for.
This fresh prepared meal delivery subscription box seems to be perfect for busy families that want healthy meals to serve but don’t have the time for the shopping, meal prep or cooking. In fact, this is how Freshly works. You choose your meals from 30-plus options of all-natural dishes. Freshly’s chefs then cook the meals for you and delivers it to you ready to go. All you have to do is heat them up and serve to your family. Freshly participates in Ebates and right now you’ll get $7.50 back when you sign up.
21. Golden Tote
On the Golden Tote website, the company is explicit in explaining that it is not a subscription service. How it ended up in this list of the most popular subscription boxes is a head scratcher. Rather, Golden Tote seems to be a place to shop online exclusive deals, during month-long sales, that keep your looks on trend for each season. You are working with an online stylist a la other, more traditional subscription boxes. So maybe that’s where the confusion lies.
Graze is a snack subscription service that delivers wholesome, delicious snacks right to your door. Every graze box is made up of perfectly portioned snacks customized for each individual based on their taste preferences and dietary requirements. You can even choose a theme for your Graze box, such as sweet, savory or protein packed. Graze uses wholesome ingredients, including those with no GMOs, no artificial flavors or colors, and 0 g trans-fat per serving.
23. Green Chef
Green Chef describes itself as a health meal kit delivery service. As someone that’s tried out other healthy meal kit delivery services, including Sun Basket and Hello Fresh, I’m intrigued by what makes Green Chef different. It probably helps that you can design your meal planning to fit a paleo, keto or vegan lifestyle. I’m sure that’s a huge plus. Another plus: Green Chef is a USDA certified organic company. “We work with farmers to source sustainable, delicious ingredients,” the website says. OK, I’m intrigued!
Harry’s started as a men’s shaving subscription service. These days it has grown into a full-blown men’s grooming company. So in addition to getting razors on a regular basis, now men can also get body wash, face wash and, of course, shaving gel. Harry’s is another company with a generous cashback option on Ebates!

27. Honest Box
Actress Jessica Alba is the brains behind The Honest Company. And The Honest Company is the brand behind the Honest Box subscription program. You can mix and match what comes in your Honest Box. Categories include personal care, cleaning and feminine care. The one category that the Honest Box does not include at this time is diapers.
Ipsy is a beauty products-centric subscription box service with affiliated online services for sharing beauty tips and more. It seems like Ipsy might have a waiting list to get into its service–not 100% clear why. But perhaps it’s because it is selective in the five full-sized beauty products it sends.
Kidpik is a monthly clothing box just for girls. Each month Kidpik’s stylists curate seven coordinated fashion pieces–clothing, accessories and shoes–giving your daughter three mix and match outfits. Clothing comes kids’ size 4 to kids’ size 16. (FYI, if you’re looking for monthly clothing box for daughters and sons, I would recommend you check out Stitch Fix Kids.)
KitNipBox is a monthly subscription box of cat treats, cat toys, and other products for your cat or kitten! The website itself is quite adorable. Not only does it show various cats enjoying their KitNipBox swag, but also there are plenty of kitties enjoying the box their toys and treats came in. I mean, you know how much cats love boxes!
31. Little Passports
Little Passports is a monthly education gift subscription for kids. It’s a way to introduce your child–or any child–to geography, science, world cultures, the arts and more with a monthly educational subscriptions box. These are award-winning subscriptions for curious kids. You can choose different subscriptions themes, including “Early Explorers,” “World Edition” and “USA Edition.”
32. Loot Crate
Here is how Loot Crate describes its unique subscription box service: “No matter what you geek out about, Loot Crate has a monthly subscription box for you! Exclusive collectibles, apparel and gear delivered to your door.” No wonder it’s one of the most popular subscription boxes among gamers and geek. I know a few Marvel and Harry Potter fans that would love Loot Crate!
33. Love with Food
Discover new junk-free snacks every month and help fight childhood hunger. That’s what the Love with Food subscription box is all about. Love with Food curates organic and all-natural snacks delivered to your doorstep. Then, the company helps contribute to causes that are working to end childhood hunger. In fact, since 2012, Love With Food has donated over 1 million meals!
34. Menlo Club
With a Menlo Club subscription, you’re sent a handful of men’s clothing pieces each month. You tell Menlo Club ahead of time your size and your likes and dislikes, and then you get the surprise package in the mail. We tried out Menlo Club for my husband, and were disappointed that once the items arrived, there wasn’t a try-on, exchange or return period. The clothes were yours, whether your liked them, they fit or whatever. That was a little bit too much blind curation for our taste. The upside? Menlo Club cost just $30, plus we got a free pair of sunglasses.
35. Mostess Box
Here is how Mostess Box describes its subscription service: Mostess sends seasonally curated home decor and hosting items in one beautiful box. You can expect to receive your box four times a year. The Mostess Box is perfect for gifting or to treat yourself. The boxes include full-sized products, recipes and styling tips.
36. Nadine West
Nadine West positions itself as a convenient, low-cost women’s clothing subscription service. Even with a low pricepoint, its customers love the outfits Nadine West sends them each month.

Pusheen Box is a quarterly subscription box service that delivers a brand-new assortment of Pusheen product to you every season. Each box contains a selection of apparel, accessories, home goods, collectibles, and more with a total retail value over $100. The site is somewhat secretive about what’s exactly in a Pusheen Box. However, from looking at the company’s social media feed, it seems to be items with a cute kitty cat on it. So I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is a subscription box for cat lovers.
44. Singles Swag
Here is Singles Swag subscription box’s tagline: A fun, stylish monthly surprise for amazing single women. Boxes include beauty products, snacks, a book and fashion accessories.
45. Snack Crate
With Snack Crate you get a monthly box of snacks from a different country. So one month you might be a variety of snack foods from Japan and the next from Mexico. You can choose from three different size of snack boxes.

Not familiar with Stitch Fix? Here is my honest review of what is Stitch Fix. Stitch Fix offers clothing box subscriptions for women–including pregnant women and women who wear petite, regular and plus sizes–as well as men and kids. You can also add in Stitch Fix “Extras” into your clothing subscription. What are extras? Bras, panties, socks, hosiery and more. You’ll pay a $20 styling fee for each Fix; that $20 is credited towards any items you keep. Also, although people refer to Stitch Fix as a women’s clothing subscription box, it is not a traditional subscription. You can schedule Fixes according to your needs and keep only want you want.
48. Sun Basket
What sets Sun Basket apart from other meal kit delivery services is that its ingredients are USDA certified organic, making it an organic meal delivery. That’s a huge deal if you’re trying to eat clean. My own daughters have friends who are vegetarian and vegan, and we made meals using our Sun Basket subscription. They were all super impressed.

So if you’re looking to decrease your carbon footprint while still enjoying meal kit delivery services, Terra’s Kitchen is a great option. Plus, right now you can save $35 when you use the code TKNOW35 at checkout. I’m so impressed with this reusability that I signed up for Terra’s Kitchen today. Look to have me add it to my popular meal kit delivery service blog post once I’m familiar with how it works!
50. Trunk Club
Owned by Nordstrom Trunk Club is one of my favorite online styling companies that offers a subscription box. I give it high marks in this online stylist review post. One of the benefits of it being a Nordstrom company is this: if you have a Nordstrom credit card and add it to your account, you won’t pay a styling fee. Also, you can take clothing you’ve purchased through Trunk Club to Nordstrom for alterations, sometimes for free. Finally, Trunk Club includes brands you’ve come to know and love at Nordstrom like Caslon, Philanthropy and NYDJ.
51. Vine Oh!
Vine Oh! is one of the first subscription boxes to include wine and fun surprises for women on a quarterly basis. It’s a wine club or wine subscription box that arrives on your doorstep.

52. Watch Gang
While it sounds like Watch Gang is a subscription services that regularly sends you watches, it is so much more than that. Yes, you’ll get a new watch sent to you. But also as a subscriber, you get entered, on a regular basis, to win a super exclusive watch from a high-end watch brand.
53. Yoga Club
YogaClub is an athleticwear subscription box that styles you for up to 60% off retail prices. It was founded on the belief that great yoga wear shouldn’t have to cost your a fortune. I agree. In fact, right now, if you become part of the YogaClub tribe today, you’ll get a free pair of leggings added to your first box! (Over $210 in total value!) with code FREELEGGING. However, since I’m doing more yoga these days–especially with the Peloton app that came with my Peloton bike–I could use more yoga gear. So I’m really intrigued by YogaClub!
Most popular subscription boxes by state
When coming up with the most popular subscription boxes by state, the researchers looked at six segments of the subscription box business. Then they looked at how popular each was in the 50 states, plus Washington, D.C. This was all based on search volume. These six segments are:

Interested in shopping by most popular subscription boxes in the state where you live? Here is how it all breaks down, state by state, plus Washington, D.C.

Pet lovers love Bark Box, and when it comes to meal kits that are delivered to your door, Alaskans prefer Plated.
Arizona’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
There must be a lot of cat lovers in Arizona, because Pusheen Box is both the state’s most popular subscription box as well as the most popular box for families. Not being 100% familiar with Pusheen, my take on this quarterly, subscription box is it send subscribes a lot of items with kitty cats on them. (They should check out the kitty cat measuring cups on my Pawsome Doggie store!) Ironically, the top pet box in Arizona is Pet Box, not Pusheen. Women in Arizona love BoxyCharm, and men love Fanchest–go sports fans. Finally, the top meal delivery kit box in Arizona is Butcher Box.
Arkansas’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
The women of Arkansas clearly rule the roost when it comes to favorite subscription boxes. That’s because the beauty subscription service called Ipsy is to the state’s overall most popular subscription box, and it’s also the most favorite of Arkansas women. The men’s favorite is Loot Crate, the service for gamers and geeks. And pet lovers in Arkansas looking for pet subscription boxes lean towards Bark Box.
California’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
Clearly, Californians love the notion of clean, organic baking options, because Foodstirs is the state’s top subscription box and the top meal prep box. California must also be home to more cat lovers than dog owners, because the top pet box is the Cat Lady Box. Organic comes up again in the top family box–Honest Box. Finally, with regards to online clothing stylists, women prefer Golden Tote and men prefer Menlo Club.
Colorado’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
Colorado is know for being one of the most health-conscious and active states. So it should come as no surprise that one of the state’s most popular subscription boxes is Green Chef. It takes the number one spot for overall most popular plus the top meal kit delivery service in Colorado. They’re also thinking healthy when it comes to the most popular women’s subscription services, with Yoga Club coming out on top. Clearly, the men are well dressed, with Sprezza Box being their number one subscription box choice. And families and pets? Well, Colorado residents love Home Chef (really thought it would be Green Chef again) and Bark Box.
Connecticut’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
Who knew that Connecticut is so much like California? Like the Golden State the Nutmeg State loves to bake, with Foodstirs coming in as the overall top subscription box as well as the top meal prep box. Interestingly, the top family box is Hello Fresh, which actually is a meal prep, meal delivery kit service (with Foodstirs is more about sweets and baking). Go figure. Men are loving Sprezza Box, women fancy Birchbox and their makeup goodies, and pet lovers are all about Bark Box.
Delaware’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
For one of this nation’s smallest states, this is one of the biggest, most eclectic list of popular subscription boxes.

When it comes to cook for the family or meal kit delivery services, the two top favorites are Home Chef and Plated. Finally, like many other states in this list, pet lovers prefer Bark Box.
Florida’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
Floridians are just crazy about Degustabox, the most popular subscription box overall. Degustabox is also the favorite subscription of families and for meal prep. This latter category is interesting since Degustabox is sending you full-sized samples from brands, and you don’t know what’s coming. So how can you meal plan around that? Well, clearly, Florida residents have figured out how. As far as the top women’s, men’s and pet boxes go, they are Birchbox, Basic Man and Cat Lady Box, respectively.
Georgia’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
Wow, do Georgians love their sweets. The top box across the state is Candy Club, which lets you choose between a box of sour candy or sweet candy each month. Women’s favorite box in Georgia is Birchbox, and men’s are loving the Basic Man subscription box. Clearly, there are dog lovers in Georgia as their most popular subscription boxes for pets is Bark Box (versus a box for cats). Finally, when it comes to meal prep or meal delivery kits, Georgia residents like Home Chef.
Hawaii’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes
Hawaii residents are big fans of meal kit delivery service Plated. It is the top subscription box across the entire state and the top meal prep box. Women aren’t into clothing as much as they are into makeup, loving Birchbox. Men are looking for stuff for geeks and gamers, and are getting it through Loot Crate. And when it comes to families, well they are loving Snack Crate. Once again, like pet owners in many other states, they feel all fuzzy about Bark Box.
Idaho’s Most Popular Subscription Boxes

This clothing subscription box, now owned by Nordstrom, is headquartered in Chicago. What about the rest of the most popular subscription boxes in Illinois?
