It’s the new craze: subscription boxes. Anyone who has ordered a subscription box, whether it includes anything from snacks to gardening equipment to clothing, will tell you that there’s nothing quite like the anticipation and thrill of opening a brand new box delivered straight to your door.
Some of the best subscription boxes include:
What could be better than a box filled with mystery snacks, in pre-chosen categories? You can order various snack boxes online, starting at less than what you’d pay for a Netflix subscription. Including:
MunchPak. Base cost: $9.95 per box. With MunchPak, subscribers receive an international snack pack. The box includes anywhere from 5 to 20 full-sized snacks depending on the box subscribers choose.
Arts and Crafts
For the creative and crafty, there are a number of subscription boxes that are popular. Whether you are a knitter or like to crochet and you’re looking for yarn or you want a scrapbook and monthly planner kit, there is a subscription box for you. Some of them include:
SketchBox. Base price: $25 per box. Includes highly-quality art supplies, such as paintbrushes, markers, paints, and so on.

Parents are always looking for ways to keep the kids busy. With these boxes, you can find something that’s appropriate for the age and skill of your child.
Kiwi Crate. Starting at $19.99/month, and great for kids between the ages of 8 and 12, Kiwi Crate includes all the supplies and instructions to complete up to three activities based on a theme. The box also includes a magazine for pre-teen readers.
Reading Bug Box. All ages of kids can get into the “bug” with this box. It includes a box of books that is more tailored to you than anything the local librarian could recommend. Reading Bug Box can also help encourage your children to read, since books are hand-selected and boxes including fun extras.
Stitch Fix. This subscription box is a thrill for any subscriber, as they work weeks in advance with a personal stylist who chooses five pieces of clothing based on a style profile made by the recipient. The subscriber can choose to keep all, some or none of the pieces, and provide feedback to the stylist. There’s a $20 styling fee and clothing pieces start at around $49.99 each.
