There are a lot of cool subscription services out there that you may not know about. Maybe you’ve heard about wine clubs and meal deliveries, but did you know you can also get fresh dog food, coffee, and even medicine delivered to your door? Here’s a roundup of our favorite subscriptions for everything from necessities to entertainment, education, and more. 

Medicine delivery

Companies are making it easier and easier to get the medicine you need without visiting the doctor. Whether it's hair loss, migraines, birth control, acid reflux, or even ED medication, you can get your medicine delivered directly without a trip to the doctor or the pharmacy. Trouble sleeping? Get personlized sleep aids from Remrise. Want to keep your immune system boosted? Get your personalized daily vitamins from Persona

Food delivery

There are a lot of ways to get groceries delivered to your door, whether you participate in a CSA or you opt for a meal subscription. Nutrisystem and South Beach Diet provide balanced nutrition with meals and snacks for affordable daily rates. If you're an aspiring chef or simply prefer to cook, Purple Carrot is a fantastic plant-based meal service with simple recipes. If you’re looking to simplify weekly meal prep, you might also check out Freshology, which allows you to customize to your dietary restrictions.

Beverage delivery

If you’re tired of the offerings at your local supermarket, consider a wine subscription to expand your palate and access varietals from all over the world. Two of our favorites are Winc and Tasting Room, both of which offer customizable wine delivery options. Drizly is perfect if you're thinking cocktails or beer. If you’re a coffee drinker and want to make better cups at home, Trade Coffee lets you get beans from roasters all over the world.

Fresh dog food delivery

You can cut down on grocery trips and hassle by ordering essentials for your pets online. A monthly fresh dog food subscription service makes this especially easy. We love The Farmer’s Dog and Nom Nom, especially for pets with picky tastes or dietary restrictions.

Other Essentials

Food and drinks aren’t the only things that send you to the grocery every week. If you’re looking to really simplify your shopping, you can also subscribe to at-home health deliveries. Harry’s and Flamingo offer razor deliveries. CleanCult delivers home cleaning products and Warby Parker lets you get new eyeglasses while Scout and Waldo let you get contacts without leaving home. Skip orthodontist trips with invisible braces from Byte or Smile Direct Club.

Entertainment and educational subscriptions

If you’re looking for at-home activities, there are subscriptions for that. If you haven’t yet cut the cable, now’s the time; subscribe instead to digital streaming platforms like CBS All Access or the bundle package of Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu. For learning opportunities at home, check out LinkedIn Learning or our personal favorite, Yale’s Coursera offering The Science of Well Being.
