Think back to your last period.
Maybe you made an emergency tampon run. Perhaps you had to hole up in your apartment and binge-watch Netflix with a hot water bottle pressed against your stomach. Maybe you ate your weight in chocolate.
It’s safe to say most of us don’t look forward to this time of the month.
But, thanks to the wonders of the web, there is a way to spark joy around your period. Introducing: period subscription boxes. Yes, packages filled with tampons and treats that make your period just that tiny bit easier. Okay, you won’t be running to the mailbox the way you would if an ASOS parcel arrived. But you might find yourself surprised at just how good the offerings are.
With that in mind, we rounded up the best of the best period subscription boxes. Have at it.
Moxie is a revelation. This Australian-based subscription retailer offers you the opportunity to create a care package for yourself and have it shipped to your door on the regular. Upon sign up, you can mix and match the five best products for your needs. Think tampons, chocolate, bath soaks, green tea. Pro tip: Once you’ve tried Moxie for yourself, tell all your BFFs. They won’t be able to thank you enough.

Pink Parcel’s mission is to “unite periods with pampering” and to say we’re on board with that mission would be an understatement. The UK-based company fills its boxes with cult beauty products, artisan chocolate, your choice of feminine hygiene products, and “seasonal surprises.” So, how much does all this goodness cost, you might ask? That’s the good news. You’ll pay £11 a month for more than £40 worth of goodies.

The PMS Package
There is a meme floating around on the web that jokes PMS is an acronym for Prepare to Meet Satan. Happily, there’s a subscription box that helps to counter the devil that is PMS. Every month, you’ll receive a different suite of treats, which makes for a nice surprise. Past boxes have included everything from essential oils to mud masks to journals to scented candles. Where do we sign up?

The Period Store
If we know one thing, we know this: The Period Store lives up to its name. The online retailer is jam-packed with everything you could ever need to make it through your period with ease. You’ll find essentials such as tampons sitting alongside fun stuff such as tote bags and bracelets. (We particularly like the Girls Have Periods tote.) All you have to do to join in the fun is pick your package, add any extras, and set up a timetable.
