Read on to find out more.

Arts and Crafts

For those of you that have little budding artists in the family, a subscription to an arts and crafts box could be the weekly or monthly excitement you are looking for. There are many to choose from which can help you or your children build and create new things, and they usually come with instructions or ideas to help fuel their imagination!

Subscription boxes like these can also make a great gift for someone who relishes in anticipation and has mastered the art of patience.


Educational subscription boxes can make learning a little easier to swallow, especially if your children prefer more of a hand’s on learning approach. Many include activities that they can “make and do,” which can be much more appealing and productive than alternative teaching options. There can also be the added excitement of having it delivered through your door, and it can double up as a bonding moment if you can do the activities with your children.


Not many people would not want snacks coming through their door, but there are so many to choose from it can be difficult to know where to start. However, if you and your family have a sweet tooth, a chocolate subscription box might just be the best choice!

While it is easy to assume that for chocolate lovers, just a regular bar of chocolate from the store can be enough to cause excitement, however, many chocolate subscription boxes contain handmade, luxurious chocolates, which creates far more of an experience and is definitely a bit more of a treat!


The bookworms of the family can unite, as getting a subscription to books can be an excellent gift for everyone! Whether you like the idea of having a mystery book turn up every month to enjoy, or you prefer to choose something a little more niche, there are plenty of different subscription options for books for you to choose from, such as the classics or a young adult focus. You can even find some hybrid boxes that combine wine with a book too! Subscription boxes are a great little gift that keeps on giving and can open up you and your family to many new things that you wouldn’t usually try! Being delivered to your door makes it fuss-free, and you can even share what is in your box if you are feeling generous
