Online subscriptions are no novel concept, but our reliance on them during these socially-distant times is. Companies like Blue Apron and Birchbox that revolutionized recurring doorstep deliveries of everything from food to beauty boxes have been around for the past decade, with emerging newcomers from the likes of Billie shaving essentials to Vinebox wine curation consistently joining the ranks. For those who can afford them, many of these services have gone from a nonessential convenience to a helpful stay-at-home resource — and we tapped into exactly which ones you've been relying on the most.
Ahead, the top online subscription services that Refinery29 readers are actually using (as sourced through anonymous shopping data from top-performing stories on-site). Scroll ahead for a peek into which recurring shipments people have been receiving and gifting over the past two months: from the expected food and alcohol sign-ups to the more surprising virtual plant workshops and activewear boxes. Who knows, maybe you're already a subscriber — or maybe you're about to discover the perfect subscription solution to one of your quarantine conundrums.
