Everyone’s talking about monthly subscription boxes and how they bring a curated experience right to your doorstep. You sign up once, and they take care of all the hustling around the city it takes to find the best in quality. But which of all the boxes on the market should you patronize with your precious cash?
Start local! We’ve got 6 impeccably curated, and locally based, monthly subscription boxes that will show you the best of what Dallas, and the world, has to offer.
Add Some Local Flavor to Your DFW Life
If you’re looking for a subscription box that offers you world flavors with Dallas swag, sign up for Spice Madam yesterday! The ladies behind this foodie drool-dream are raining spices down on the D that you’ve never even heard of before (Farinha de Minhoca??).
Curators of Exotic Experiences
Every month the Spice Madam box will introduce you to another culture’s cuisine by way of its spices, recipes, culinary history, and–get this–a custom Spotify playlist! They offer you this passport across the culinary globe for $20 a month. Out of this world!
Check out their Instagram for hints about the cultures they’ll feature in the coming months.
Your Personal Stylist-in-a-Box
Well, the stylist is not quite in a box. Front Door Fashion has full-time human stylists that work with you, and can even meet with you in Dallas for a styling session. After you communicate your price-point and current fashion obsessions, you’ll receive a personally styled box in the mail of about 6 local and curated pieces.
Anything you decide you don’t want within 5 days goes back, no charge to you. Everything else gets auto-charged. Ask for a new box as often you like!
Dallas Discoveries at a Discount
Dallas Box Co fits a more familiar mold of the subscription box, and that’s what makes them great. They partner with local businesses around Dallas to offer you new and interesting discoveries at a discount. With plenty of Dallas to see, we can’t wait to see what’s in the next box!

If your neck gets lonely during the week, then you might want to consider Dallas-based Urban Dapper Club. They send you a hand-made, slender tie once a month, that hits the mark for menswear trends and pricing.
Seriously, at $14 a month, why not?
Dallas Gifts In (Teen) Vogue!
We’re so proud that Velvet Crate, a Dallas-based customizable gift subscription box, has made it big! That’s right, they’re in Teen Vogue, and it doesn’t get much better than that. You should probably get a gift from them before everyone (and your mom…or maybe your daughter) knows about them!
Oh, Texas! Garland, Texas!

If you’re willing to broaden your scope just a wee bit, you might be super interested in My Texas Market. They literally shop farmers markets all around the state of Texas just to bring you the best of the Lone Star State. We don’t mind bragging that Dallas Fort Worth pops up in their boxes almost every month!
See March, Rodeo Month, contained Basic Foodism BBQ sauce from Garland, TX. May will feature a Wylie BBQ rub as well!
