We Rate The Best Subscription Boxes: DIY

+ snag you exclusive discounts

We've covered kawaii, beauty, accessories, and fitness subscription boxes, and now it's time to delve into DIY. We know there's an inner craft hound in you. Do you love embellishing your clothing, decorating everything with washi tape, and creating things in your kitchen to give away to friends? Well, lucky lucky, because we have an array of selections for you.

While most subscription boxes are fun simply for the surprise element of what's inside, DIY boxes are fun for an additional reason: you actually get to do something with those fun ingredients inside. Perfect for a rainy day or inviting a couple of friends over, these kits allow you to get your hands a little dirty but come out on the other end with some pro-looking items. If you're the kind of person who already decorates their journal, or makes the occasional scented body oil or chapstick for friends, we have got the boxes for you.

Below, check out the best of the best, from companies that allow you to make everything from your own beauty products to home decor to even home remedies. There's something for everyone. Read on.

Homegrown Collective


Cost: $39 for a single box plus $9 shipping, discounts for subscriptions.

The dirt: Each curated box contains ingredients to create multiple projects that are designed to replace your bath, beauty, and home items with all-natural and organic alternatives. First thoughts upon opening the box: we adored the packaging and modern apothecary feel of all the items inside. As for what we were able to make? Eucalyptus shower vapor discs perfect for a steam shower to wake up the senses and clear out sinuses, echinacea, elderberry, and St. John's wort for creating our own home remedies, wild honey to infuse with sage for sore throats, and more. The bounty of items inside was as much of a delightful surprise as everything else and not only did we have fun creating everything, it felt good knowing we were going to use all-natural ingredients to heal ourselves the next time we were a bit under the weather.
