Subscription Boxes:

From food, to fashion, to fitness, subscription boxes have it all. If you haven’t heard of subscription boxes, there are multiple different types that you can order. Subscribers pay a weekly, monthly or quarterly price to receive a box full of useful things, depending on your interests. One of the most popular food subscription box companies is Graze. With Graze, you pay $13.99 for a one-week subscription. The box comes with eight snacks, hand-picked according to your tastes. Another subscription box is FabFitFun, which provides you with more beauty and lifestyle related products. The box comes with full-size products ranging from hair care and beauty, lifestyle products and food. The price to receive a box seasonally is $49.99, which is not bad for a box that can be valued at $200. Subscription boxes are a fun way to treat yourself and get surprised with new products!

Wireless Headphones:

Many people are ditching their old headphones for cordless and hassle-free headphones. Bluetooth headphones have been on the rise, as the cord-free feature takes away the time you have to spend untangling the headphones. Though they can be more on the expensive side, there are also many affordable options. Best Buy has headphones starting at $17.99, which are comparable to any regular set of headphones. One of the most popular brands is Beats. They are more on the pricey side, but the quality of sound is worth it. Beats or not, wireless headphones are still a better option to the traditional cord headphones.
