Gift Guide- Subscription Boxes Pt.2

I had so much making the first gift guide about subscription gift boxes that I thought I would make another one! The thing is, there are a ton of subscription boxes out there. Its so difficult to choose just a few a great ones, because there are a lot of great ones. But there are also a lot of crappy ones floating around out there too. So please do your research and make sure that you're choosing boxes that fit what you're looking for and know that they are a gamble.

For the kiddos-
Kiwi Crate. These boxes come in a variety of age appropriate choices starting from three years old and going all the way up to sixteen years old. Each box contains enough materials to complete a project, and some other fun stuff depending on the age group. Subscriptions start at $19.95/month with free shipping.

Little Passports. For the world traveller in training, this box has everything. Its a great way to help a child explore different parts of the world without breaking your bank to actually take them there. There are different plans for different age groups, and each age group seems to cost different amounts, so check your prices accordingly. The first month in the first two age groups, the child will receive a suitcase and passport with their first lesson, after that its letters, etc.

For the cat lady-
MeowBox. This box is expensive, but if you love your kitty kitty then its worth it! A monthly box is $32.95 here in the States, but they are shipping from Canada. Each month a little box of treats will come for your cat, and a small portion of sales from these boxes goes to animal rescue.

For the makeup enthusiast-
Ipsy. This fun little bag comes with a few different beauty finds for just $10 a month. You take a quiz to determine your beauty style, and samples are sent based on that quiz. If you like what you receive in your bag, you have the option to buy the full size product at a discount.

Julep Maven. This box is similar to Ipsy, but it comes with two price options, My Maven ($24.99), and Maven Deluxe ($34.99). Each box comes with beauty items tailored to your style profile (yep, you get to take a little quiz to start this subscription too!). These are full sized products though, which is why the subscription price is a little high.

For the hero supporters-
HeroCrate. A bit like Loot Crate, except each month is dedicated to one specific hero! And, you don't have to have a subscription to get the box. You can buy your boxes as you want at 29.99 a month (although, there is a three month bundle at 27.99/month if you prefer). A teeshirt is guaranteed in every crate, plus four to six other items. And rumor has it that a VillianCrate is in the works.

So I'm sure there are still many more amazing boxes out there, but I am running out of time!! What are your favorite subscription boxes?


I look forward to reading your words of wisdom. Don't freak out if you don't see your comment right away, I do moderate :) Thanks!
