Subscription boxes have been all the rage for a while. Boxes like StitchFix send you clothes, and ipsy sends you makeup samples. But, what I was on the hunt for were some New Orleans based boxes so we can keep supporting our own!
Check out all the ones we could find across the New Orleans metro area!
#1: Free Your Tea
The Free Your Tea team is always looking for the best tea to send out monthly right here in downtown New Orleans. With subscriptions for your home or office, you will find yourself looking forward to that package arriving!
Dubbed the Netflix of teas, you will be able to rate each delivery, and the options headed your way will vary based on these ratings.
Whether you enjoy herbal, iced, or regular tea – Free Your Tea covers all those bases.
Whether or not this one is actually locally based is hard to tell – but it supports your locals! Your monthly box will include foods from across the city ranging from sweet to savory. 100% of the proceeds go to feed frontline and healthcare workers.
#3: Lady Delaney
While this isn’t your typical type of subscription box, some might say it’s even better.
This mystery subscription series sends you a case file and clues that will leave you in suspense. Have fun for months with this brainteaser! (Make sure to scour her website for other fun mystery series too!)
The name gives away exactly what this is, a t-shirt subscription!
At only $15/month and sizes ranging from XS to 5X – this is a great size and gender-inclusive gift idea! You can ship your shirt straight to your door or pick-up from their Uptown location.
Ok, so this one is from Como, MS – but it’s not too far away from New Orleans! (Honestly, they were too great not to include!)
If you’ve ever wondered where your meat comes from, you don’t have to when ordering from Home Place Pastures. They will ship a package each month (size dependent on your selection) of varying meat cuts.
With boxes ranging from $65-$199/month, it’s convenient and cost-effective to get it straight from the butcher right at your door!
#6: Cajun Crate
While Cajun Crate is not just New Orleans, it helps small vendors from across the state.
Each month, your crate is a different theme but always Louisiana based. Products range from more well-known brands to items found at local farmer’s markets. Your Cajun Crate comes with SEVEN full-sized items, and shipping is free!
This box is not only great for an out-of-town friend but an awesome way for you to find some new favorites too!
Created right here in New Orleans, this might be my favorite of the boxes! (I really love office supplies!)
Whether you’re hoping for tech gadgets, fun pens, or stylish office supplies – this box is sure to bring a smile to your face. The Delightful Desk is beautifully packaged and brings out your inner organizer.
Shipping is free, and you can cancel anytime. But, as someone who subscribes to them, you likely won’t!
Don’t forget that supporting local keeps the dollars in our community!
