The Best Subscription Box Gifts for Kids

December is a magical month for kids, whether it’s the baby’s first holiday season or just a toddler’s new favorite time of year. But once that serotonin rush wears off from tearing open all those cool gifts, what do they have to look forward to?

We’ll tell you what: subscription boxes. These highly giftable options means new toys, clothes and books will come to the door on a monthly basis for months to come. Companies like Lovevery, KiwiCo, and Lalo allow you to choose the length of your kiddo’s subscription, so you can send a single box or keep them coming all year. Boxes save the headache of picking a single gift, and lest you worry they’re too expensive, many start at under $20 per month. Plus, it ends up being an unexpectedly useful gift for parents, since they get to introduce something novel and cool to baby each month. Win-win!

Lovevery's box offerings change based on your child's age to support the specific development stage, starting from birth and going up to four years.
