Subscription boxes are a cool way to give a gift year-round with something that caters just to their hobbies and interests.
It seems like every month the search is on for some type of gift.
I don’t know about you, but I hate always ending up with a gift card because I just don’t know what to get.
We may be able to search for just the right present online these days rather than just wander the mall but it’s still time-consuming and often we still don’t know where to begin or what to buy.
Buying something unique yet still geared towards the recipient really is the ultimate objective.
What exactly is a subscription box?
Subscription boxes are a recurring delivery of a variety of products based on a particular interest.
Some companies ship monthly, others quarterly.
They are often designed based on when they ship such as items that match the season.
How cool would it be to receive something throughout the year?
Here are a few subscription boxes designed with tween and teen boys in mind.
