    Presents? Each month? Sign me up.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Winc brings you delicious new wines to try right to your doorstep (#blessed). You can get up to four bottles per month based on your taste preferences...and I think this is the only subscription service I need to know about.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    What you'll get: Four bottles of wine curated to your preferences, as well as info cards about the selections.

    "YES. The wine is delicious (and more importantly gorgeous to look at), plus it's super fun to get a boozy present in the mail each month. Thanks to nice packaging, it feels like a real luxury, even if the bottles are only about a dollar or two more than what I'd normally pay. I won't say this is a money-saver, but the experience and convenience definitely makes it worthwhile." —Bek O'Connell in This Wine Subscription Service Will Change Your Life

    Get it from Winc starting at $13.

    2. Stitch Fix basically acts as your personal stylist and sends you handpicked pieces to fit your tastes and budget. Buy the pieces you want and return the ones you don't — it's as easy as that!

    instagram.com

    What you'll get: Five items per box, including clothing, shoes, and accessories. Just complete a style profile while signing up, and a personal stylist will take it from there! Plus, it comes in a prepaid UPS envelope which makes returns easy-peasy. Psst: they offer women's, men's, plus, petite, maternity, and luxe pieces.

    Get it from Stitch Fix starting at $20 (for a styling fee which acts as a credit toward any items you purchase), plus the price of any item you choose to keep (available in sizes XS-3X). There's no subscription required so you can try Stitch Fix once or set up automatic deliveries.

    3. Billie, a razor kit subscription you customize to fit your lifestyle and shaving frequency...because using old, rusty razors = bad. Now you'll always have one on hand, plus fresh new blade cartridges.

    instagram.com

    What you'll get: A starter kit with a complete razor, magnetic holder, and an extra cartridge, plus any additional add-ons (like body wash!). Your next set will come with replaceable shave heads at a frequency ideal for your lifestyle.

    AHHHHHH! This service is something I never thought I would love or even want to pay for (it does ends up being incredibly cost-effective in the long run!), but it turns out I was wrong and I guess I don't even know myself. Not only is this my favorite razor to use in general, I love that I never have to *think* about picking up new heads or razors at the drugstore, since everything is delivered to my door when I need it. The shave itself is incredible, especially when paired with their sudsy body wash/shave soap. My skin seriously feels like someone draped a piece of silk over them and then lathered 'em up in lotion. I mean, if there's one area in my life I can make easier, why would I not do it?!

    Get a razor kit from Billie starting at $9.

    4. Simplicty Teas — a loose tea subscription guaranteed to satisfy your cravings with a variety of new options to try each month.

    9. Hawthorne delivers a curated box of bathroom essentials right when you need 'em. You simply fill out a quiz about your likes and dislikes, and they'll send you a collection of personal care products and cologne tailored for your needs.

    instagram.com

    What you'll get: Each box is different based on preferences, but you can receive a variety of products like body wash, deodorant, and colognes.

    I got this for my lovely boyfriend who *cough cough* is constantly using MY products. All he had to do was complete an in-depth quiz, and they sent him a bunch of personal care goods — plus two colognes for day and night — suited to his lifestyle, body chemistry, and scent preferences. The products themselves are amazing, especially the aluminum-free deodorant and cologne (I can personally vouch for that one!). I know firsthand how much he despises shopping, especially for skincare and bath essentials, so this has been a game-changer for him. And I mean, you just can't go wrong with the minimalistic, sleek packaging.
