You know that uneasy feeling you get every month, right? Excruciating pain in your abdomen that can make you crumble into a puddle of tears, loss of appetite, mood swings, and popping pain pills like they’re happy pills are sure shot signs that the little devil called your period is back. Those 5 days of hell (sometimes more!) that revisit you each month can make any woman want to curl up in her bed and hibernate till its over. No matter what we do, there’ss no shying away from the fact that women get periods and it’s NOT fun.
And as if nature’s issues weren’t enough, you sometimes have to deal with a million restrictions, taboos, and superstitions associated with getting your periods, especially as an Indian woman. So it’s fair to say we deserve a little break from all this bullshit, don’t we?
And the best way to do that is to pamper yourself because let’s face it, no one else knows you better! But, how do we do that? On *those* days, you don’t want to leave the house to buy pads, let alone go on a shopping spree. And solving this predicament are some wonderful subscription boxes! You read that right. While there are lots of subscription boxes for jewellery, clothes, health care, food and the works, why not ones that will help you with your PMS? Here are 3 amazing boxes that will give you that little joy every month to make your menstrual blues go away. Sitting at home, you can enjoy the goodies they have to offer without doing any hard work. You can thank me later!
Started earlier this year, Cosset aims to provide comfort to women while they are on their periods and want to make it a pain-free experience. For that, they have boxes that provide you with energy bars, some divine-smelling lotions, shower gels, green tea packets, gift vouchers, and of course, sanitary napkins. You can choose your own brand of pads and select the plan you want, enter your period details, and your box will be delivered to you on time!
Price: Rs 349 per month.
This box is among the most well-known period subscription boxes in India. The folks at Being Juliet understand that periods can dampen our spirits and we do indeed feel dull.

After taking down your cycle details, they ensure that your box reaches your doorstep 5 days before your period starts. So that the next time you can welcome it with (some) enthusiasm!
