Last year alone, over two billion people purchased goods online. With more people than ever switching to shop online this year, the retail landscape has undergone a digital transformation which has almost doubled in size.
With the last year of lockdown coupled with the mental health crisis which has swept across the globe, it is more important than ever before for you to look after your physical and mental health.
As a result, we’ve put together the top health and wellbeing subscription boxes which we think are brilliant and worth investing in with a year’s subscription. So grab a cup of tea and sit back and relax (and get your bank card at the ready!)
1) Books That Matter
For those who haven’t heard of Books That Matter before, this book subscription service is like no other. Awarded female startup of the year (2021), this book subscription is completely different to any other subscriptions available on the market. You’ll 100% want to purchase at least one of these boxes!
The UK’s leading book subscription service, Books That Matter provides boxes which contain uniquely selected products including not only a book, but also additional gifts such as vegan chocolates, a bag tote and some cute stationary.
Each box is also carefully curated each month with a particular theme or partnership charity (e.g. feminism, PRIDE, choose LOVE etc.). With the boxes curated inclusively; placing a variety of different identities and representation of people in both the boxes and charities which the company works with, the brand is helping to diversify the publishing industry; placing a variety of different authors into the hands of eager customers.

Pause is a monthly subscription box created by Mind, the mental health charity. This box has been created to boost your wellbeing and provides resources for mental health support and assistance.
Given that one in four adults in the UK are diagnosed each year with a mental health condition (according to research published by the NHS), and seven-hundred and ninety-two people are affected by mental health issues worldwide, the work this charity does is far reaching and has a huge impact.
The Pause subscription box encourages you to find some time during the day to reflect on how you are feeling. There are also challenges inside encouraging you to learn a new skill and build up your self esteem.
Whether you are feeling a little disconnected at the moment, or you just need an extra five minutes to feel calm during the day, this box is for you! Check out their website here!
3) A Box of Happiness
Feeling a bit stuck at the moment and wanting to change your career? This box is for you! This monthly subscription box contains thirty questions that will help you to find your purpose in life. With beautiful quotes and a wooden stand, feel inspired and make your outlook on life brighter with these positive messages and affirmations.
Turn your passion into your life’s work with a Box of Happiness. The box is purposefully designed to help you “discover your calling so that you can live a life of purpose.”
