During the pandemic, it’s been a challenge for us to get out and shop on a regular basis, with caution being a major concern for most people. How can we meet our needs and desires for treats? Online subscriptions are perfect for people who prefer to stay at home, or just about anyone who enjoys a nice cup of coffee or other goodies. If you’re looking for the best subscription boxes in the Pacific Northwest, we’ve got you covered.
From cookies to coffee, cozy to outdoorsy, there’s a subscription service for everyone! Here’s a list of a few local, regional, and national outlets to consider for subscription boxes and services.

The Best Subscription Boxes in the Pacific Northwest
1) Three Birdies Bakery
Cookies at my doorstep the first of every month? Yes, please. This can be with the cookie subscription service offered by Three Birdies Bakery.
With your choice of six, 12, 18, or 24 decorated cookies, Three Birdies Bakery may have created the tastiest delivery service ever. With about a 50 percent discount, you can sign up for the delivery service for three to 12 months.
The neat thing about Three Birdies Bakery is its story. Learning to bake from her grandmother, Jamie Roberts always enjoys making sweets. Friends asked her to make some for them, so she took it a step further and created several dozen for Valentine’s Day. The business took off, and now she offers the subscription service.

Happy National Sugar Cookie Day!! You know who makes the best sugar cookies in Spokane? Hands down @threebirdiesbakery!! Her cookies are not only adorable (I mean, LOOK AT THIS! Look at this chip chillin’ in some guacamole!) but they’re also tasty. . Seriously – these cookies + coffee or tea? Heaven. Take your 5 minutes to chill with a cookie from @threebirdiesbakery and coffee and your day will be a whole lot better, trust me! . You can find her online at @threebirdiesbakery and at the Kendall Yards Farmers Markets on Wednesdays! . #nationalsugarcookieday #natlsugarcookieday #happysugarcookieday #sugarcookies #cookies #nomnomnom #travelblogging #bloggersofinstagram #flashesofdelight #spokane #spokanewashington #spokanedoesntsuck #spokanewa #spokanegram #everydayspokane #visitspokane #spokanelife #spokaneliving #spokanepulse #upperleftliving #instagood #theprettycities #pnwlife #pnw #ig_thisworld #ourpnw #lifeofadventure #exploremore #adventurevisuals #womenwhoexplorewashington
2) Bean Box Coffee
When your tag is “Your mornings deserve the #1 Coffee Tasting Box,” you know you’ve set the expectations bar quite high. From our experience, Seattle-based Bean Box Coffee has cleared the hurdle, and then some.
Featuring a monthly subscription service that delivers a variety of coffee – either whole beans or freshly ground – from different roasters, you’re sure to sample unique blends and flavors from around the world. Bean Box even goes the extra mile by offering a great selection of gift boxes, including a sampler box, a coffee and biscotti box, coffees from the around world, and even a coffee and tea box.
We tried the sampler box, with the biscotti, and WOW, was it tasty! The Kuma blend was our favorite, but you can’t go wrong with a sampler pack that lets you try multiple flavors and types.
For single cup users, Bean Box can send you an order of single brew pods. You can order a Bean Box subscription here.

3) Inland Northwest Trading Company
When faced with adversity of losing their jobs during the pandemic, a Spokane couple decided to realize their dream of owning their own business. We interviewed Mariah and Gary Bailey of Inland Northwest Trading Co. not too long ago – read all about Inland Northwest Trading Co. here!
It was through this that Inland Northwest Trading Co. subscription service was launched. Inland Northwest Trading Co. hand-packs each box containing Pacific Northwest products, such as clothing, soap, and candles. Inland offers three box sizes with each monthly subscription price, from 5-7 items, 7-10, and 12+ items.
We reviewed the very first subscription box Inland Northwest Trading Company ever made – take a look at our review here: A BRAND NEW Inland NW Subscription Box: Inland Northwest Trading Co
4) Explore Local Box
Miss traveling? With the Explore Local subscription box, you can travel to a new city and come home with all kinds of goodies without leaving the comfort of your own home. Explore Local offers a monthly subscription service that will send you treats, art and more that are all locally made from the chosen city that month. You’ll ‘explore’ a new city every month while supporting local small businesses!
While it’s not completely ‘Pacific Northwest’ local, chances are the Explore Local subscription box will ‘take’ you to cities around the Pacific Northwest. You can also contact the company ahead of time to see which cities are up next!
Portland, OR was the February ‘city of the month’ – check out the video below to see what the Portland Explore Local box included!
I’ve covered Hikewize before in our Father’s Day events and gift guide, but I have to mention it again here – it’s that good! If you love hiking in Spokane, getting out in nature, and checking out cool outdoor gear, you’ll love a subscription to Hikewize.
A Hikewize subscription box comes four times a year and is packed with hiking gear and National Park tips. You’ll receive 5-7 items per box – all full-size!
From creating a business during the pandemic to meeting your outdoor needs (need I mention the coffee?), the neat thing about subscription services is that it’s great to support local business. But when what you need or want isn’t available locally, it’s nice to know that you can subscribe to that service.
