MSA Reader Survey: Best Subscription Boxes of 2016!

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.


As 2016 draws to a close, we’ve found ourselves thinking about our favorite subscription boxes and reviews from 2016 — and we want to hear your favorites, too!

Just for fun, we put together this quick survey where you can tell us your favorite boxes in different categories!

None of the questions are required except for the very last one for “Best Box Overall”, so feel free to skip any categories that you don’t feel strongly about. (You can always browse the Subscription Box Directory for ideas, too)

The survey will be active until Saturday, 1/14 then we’ll share the results soon after. (Also, thank you for all the questions on this post – it was more than expected, so it is taking me longer to answer all questions, but that post should be up soon as well!)

The survey is embedded below, but if it doesn’t load for you try this link instead!

As always, I can’t thank you enough for being a part of the MSA community and sharing your thoughts with us!

Thank you and Happy New Year!

  1. Can’t complete survey – blocked by my work computer. 🙁

  2. Bespoke Post has been my favorite since I signed up. I get at least once box every month, lots of months it’s been two or more with add-ons.

    …And yes, I’m a woman. Their stuff is just awesome and more practical than a lot of women’s boxes. Plus kitchen boxes!

  3. FabFitFun killed it this year for me! 🙂

  4. Haha, Liz. That pic looks so much like my room!! I’m glad I’m swapping now to use up all of these boxes piled up in my room!! 😉

  5. Needed a stand alone category for best jewelery subscription. Can’t wait for the results!

  6. Boxycharm and Benevolent Beauty were A+ this year.

    • I’m relatively new to the subscription “game” and those are the two beauty boxes I chose to sign up for (along with Sephora Play! when the waitlist was open)! They looked the best to me too. I’m so excited!

  7. I’m excited to see the results too!

    For some reason I love surveys!

  8. I’m excited to see the results. Especially the “Best box your friends haven’t heard of”

    • Me too! 🙂

  9. Will we ever see the results of last year’s readers’ poll?

  10. I can not wait to see what other people say because I am thinking about doing a switch up of my subscription boxes.

  11. I completed the survey. I have been wondering what else is good out there, since I am new to this.

  12. Any chance to add best pregnancy box to the list? I hope to be in the market for one soon and trying to narrow it down.

    • ^This

      Or new mommy/new baby boxes

    • I’d say the most decent one is Bluum. It’s good during pregnancy and after. They let you choose the items for each box or it can be a surprise. The only thing – you need to choose fast because a lot of good stuff is quickly gone from selection.
