Top 20 Subscription Boxes to Gift This Year

Leah Courtney
Coming up with ideas for gift giving isn't always easy for me. I have nieces and nephews that I don't see often, and I don't know what toys or games or books they already own. I have family members and friends that I'm sure don't need anything, but I want to give some kind of gift. Even with my own children, I know that they have everything they need- and often many things they want, and it's hard to think of something meaningful and creative to give.

Enter the subscription box. Subscription boxes are monthly- or occasionally bimonthly- boxes of goodies that are mailed to the recipient's house each month. Although many of these used to be primarily for kids, there are all kinds of subscription boxes to be found now. You can find boxes tailored to men, to women, to families, even to dogs!  If you're looking for a unique gift this year, try a subscription to one of the many subscription box options available. In this post I've rounded up my top twenty and grouped them in categories for you.
