If you're taken with wine/book/cheese of the month clubs, you might want to consider becoming a member of one of these style societies, where you can treat yourself to something new and affordable every 30 days. Need a gift for a friend or family member who hates to shop? Sign her up and create a personal profile based on her fashion likes/dislikes so she's guaranteed to receive something that she'll actually want to wear (without having to hit the stores). Check out three of our favorites:

Jewelmint: Created by actress Kate Bosworth and her stylist Cher Coulter, this jewelry club emails you a personalized selection of earrings, rings, bracelets, and necklaces to choose from--offering a range in styles from dainty to daring. And you're not obligated to buy each month--if you don't see anything you love, skip it. The cost: Membership is free, each piece of jewelry is $29.99.

Sole Society: Put a spring in your step with new sandals, flats, wedges, or heels every month. Ideal for the shoe obsessed or the woman who doesn't have time to hunt for the perfect pair. Like Jewelmint, you're not obligated to buy every time and if they don't fit, return them free of charge. The cost: Membership is free, each pair of shoes is $49.95.

StyleMint: Is your go-to weekend uniform a T-shirt and jeans? This club, created by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, sends you a super-soft tee and style tips direct from this duo so that you can add to your collection and find new ways to wear your old favorites (in other words, give your jeans a day off and try a long skirt or slim khakis, etc.). The cost: Membership is free, each T-shirt is $29.99.
