Since subscription hair and beauty boxes such as the uber successful Curl Box first hit the scene, the home delivery box concept has been all the rage since. It’s even grown outside the hair and beauty industry.
These subscription boxes and memberships give the consumers the ability to try out new trends, products, early-released merchandise and the best of any particular industry without all the effort it would normally take to curate all those items individually.
So if whether you’ve not yet experienced the joys of the subscription box trend or if you’re an old pro, here’s a few other black-owned subscription boxes to put on your radar.

Developed by Ebony Costain, this monthly subscription box showcases products from black-owned companies, which range from fashion, art, health, food and beauty businesses. The boxes, which are priced at an affordable $25 a month, features products for men and women. Ujamaa Box allows you to support several black-owned businesses with one single (or monthly) purchase.
We first learned about Bevel and the founder, Tristan Walker through Facebook. The headline read, “Black-Owned Shaving Company “Bevel” Turns Down 1.5 Billion Dollar Buyout Offer From Industry Leader Gillette.” Bevel offers a subscription service (starting at $29.95) and is a five-part shaving system that boosts smoother, irritation-free skin.
The Bloom Beautifully Box
Founded by self-care coach Tara Pringle Jefferson, this box will help you make self-care a priority without giving it a second thought. With items sourced from small businesses around the country, each self-care box is intended to nurture your mind, body and spirit. And with the subscription (which starts at $39 every two months), you’ll also get access to monthly power calls with self-care experts.
Dapper Black Box
Men can have their fun with the subscription box trend thanks to Aaron J. Barnes, founder of the Dapper Black Box. These boxes (at a $28 monthly rate) include grooming products and fashion accessories from other black-owned companies.
At $34.95 a month, you can support all facets of black-owned business with this subscription box. From the artisan foods to handmade crafts and jewelry, the boxes offer a surprise each month.
Just Like Me
Young readers should get a kick each time their Just Like Me box hits their mail box. For $25, children ages 0 to 12, will be mailed two to three books. And the books are not only centered around African American characters, they are adjusted to male versus female interests and age-appropriate reading levels. Owner Tamara McNeil developed the box after enduring her own frustrations with finding reading material for her young son.
My Lit Box
For adult readers looking to get into the literary fun too, Sanura Williams, founder of My Lit Box, has something for you. With prices starting at $17 a month, subscribers can get one newly-released novel a month— and most novels are centered around women of color. And the $25 a month subscribers will receive one to two goodies that relate to their book.
