Subscription boxes seem to be all the rage these days. There is one for just about everything– and I mean who doesn’t love to get surprises in the mail??
Yesterday I visited the folks over at Better Connecticut to share a few of my favorite subscription boxes that specifically make the #MomLife just a little easier– and in some cases, dare I say… a little more fab! 😉

You can get the full details on these boxes below along with some exclusive coupon codes for Everyday Cori readers and Better Connecticut Viewers!
Create a modern day wine tasting in your home
Pricing starting at $25/ per box
James and I strive to put date night on our calendar at least once a month– but if I’m being honest, the struggle to find the time, and the babysitter is sometimes a challenge. I know we aren’t alone in this. But I’m here to tell you that date night at home can be just as much fun– and Vinebox brings that “Napa”-like experience right to your doorstep.
Unlike your standard “wine of the month”, this one has a modern twist– they send you 3 glasses of freshly sealed wine from all around the world! The wine is curated by a professional sommelier ( fancy word for wine-expert ) and based on your own wine preferences, which you let them know when you sign up for the service.
These wines are not ones you will find at your local wine store, Vinebox is all about the hidden gems making truly great wines at their small vineyards around the world.
These sleek, dare I say sexy, boxes also include information cards that give a little background of where your wine comes from and also a few light bite suggestions for pairing.
Kids Nikes on demand
$20 per month/ per child
I first discovered EasyKicks a few months back, and as a mother of 3 kids who seem to be growing at rapid speed (including a tween who is particularly sneaker obsessed!), I instantly fell in love with this unique (and quite GENIUS) box subscription.
EasyKicks is a partner with Nike and for $20 per month/child you can select a pair of Nike or Converse sneakers for your kid (sizes 4C-7y), which they can then wear until they outgrow, wear out, or just want a new pair of kicks.
When they’re ready for a new pair, you can just ship them back to Easy Kicks in a prepaid envelope and select a brand. new. pair!!! – Doesn’t have to be the same style – or brand. You can go from Nike to Converse, high-top to low top… unlimited exchanges!
And the part that I really love about this service is that it also gives back! When they receive your kid’s used sneakers, those used sneaks are donated to kids in need OR if they are really beat up, they recycle them to make playgrounds for kids through Nike Grinds program!

Fun and educational boredom buster
This is one that my daughter is particularly smitten with and can truly be a lifesaver on those summer days when the “I’m boooooorrred” crys begin to ring throughout the house.
Kiwi Crate sends monthly STEM crafting projects based on your child’s age. There are Kiwi crates for every kid– ages 3 all the way up to 16! These boxes come with easy to follow directions and all the supply necessary. I love that there is little to no waste and also no need to run out to the store– because there is nothing worse than scouring Pinterest, deciding to tackle an adorable craft and then finding out you are out of glue!
Perfect seasonal surprise
$49.95/per box or $179/annually
I order a lot of things in the mail– like… A LOT! But if I’m being honest, most of the boxes that come in the mail with my name on it, aren’t actually for me specifically. They’re typically things like school supply, paper towels, birthday gifts and kids clothes– don’t even get my husband started on my Zulily addiction.
Fab Fit Fun is a seasonal surprise in the mail that is a little bit of all the things we love– fashion, beauty, fitness, home decor– you name it and everything is FULL SIZE .
In the spring box I showed on Better Connecticut, there was a gorgeous rose gold necklace I LOVED, a super cute circular boho beach blanket and a body wash infused Spongelle sponge– that I had no idea I needed in my life until I opened the box and smelled it–soooo good! You can actually purchase it on TheGrommet.com, a site that very coincidentally was also on the same episode of Better Connecticut. They have some really unique stuff, totally worth checking out.
While most items in the Fab Fit Fun box are a bit of a surprise, the company did add some new customizable features this spring. Members can now personally select one item in their box and also add additional items to their box for up to 60% off retail price– making this seasonal surprise even SWEETER.

The Netflix Of Plus Size Style
Pricing starting at $49.99 for 1 item per month to $95 for 3 items per month
Remember when Netflix use to send DVDs to your house? (Am I aging myself here?) You would add DVDs to your list and they would send a few of them to you at a time & when you sent those back, they would then send you the next ones in your cue. Well, this box-o-style has been called the Netflix of plus size fashion (sizes 10-32) because it operates just like that.
You log in, sign up and curate a “virtual closet” filled with stylish clothes from some great brands, such as: Rachel Roy, Vince Camuto, Eliza J. Then depending on which plan you choose, they will send 1-3 items per month right to your door step. You can wear the items as many times as you’d like. When you’re done, you pop them back in the mail in a prepaid envelope, send it back to Gwynnie Bee (they even take care of the dry cleaning!) and they then send you more fabulous items from your online closet.
And if you really find an item that you love so much that you don’t want to part with it? They give you the option to purchase it at a discount!
Confession: We dial up the pizza place so often, they know us by name. I’m not proud. It’s not that I hate cooking, I’m just reeeaaalllly bad at meal planning. I’ve tried (and failed) at “Meal Planning Monday” so many times, it’s just embarassing– but I have to admit when I do plan, we always eat and feel better.
Home Chef is a meal subscription service that takes the stress out of meal planning – and grocery shopping– because if you are like me you are always forgetting at least ONE ingredient– usually its things like shallots or fresh basil. Home Chef never forgets your shallots and basil ;), all ingredients are included, portioned out so no measuring needed, just a little chippity chopping and cooking and in around 30 minutes for $9.95 you have a truly amazing meal.
If you follow me on Intagram you may have seen how quickly Avery (my 3 year old) gobbled up those Korean Pork Medallions I showed on Better Connecticut. You guys, he asked for seconds and no I am not kidding!
Sephora is a guilty pleasure for so many of us– but how hard is it to shop around for new beauty products when you have kids in tow?? IMPOSSIBLE!
For $10 a month, Sephora will send you 5 deluxe size samples, plus a fragrance – TO. YOUR. DOORSTEP.
The subscription also includes exclusive access to video tutorials of ways you can use those products, as well as a cute makeup pouch and …. drum rolls please…. 50 additional beauty points towards your next purchase!! Sephora-holics, you KNOW how much we covet those beauty points!
