Subscription boxes are everywhere these days. They’re definitely a fun gift option, especially for the person who seems to have everything. From food and wine to beauty and bracelets, what’s better than getting a “gift” in the mail each month? Before “adding to cart,” there are a few things to keep in mind – duration being one. The more we commit to, the less we pay per month. Most have the flexibility of committing for as little as three months, to a full year. Read the fine print. While some services include the shipping price in the fee, others do not. And lastly, be aware of the auto-renew option. While that works for someone who would like to continue receiving their subscription box, you’ll definitely want to stay on top of that if they’re over it. Some will auto renew, while others will shut it down when the commitment is through. Below are some of our favorites to gift to others, or try out for yourself!
