8 Superb Subscription Services
We're a little concerned about the future of the handwritten note, but we're confident that the care package is going nowhere fast. Here to save the day (and the mailman) are some amazing new monthly subscription services you'll want to sign up for. These boxes come directly to your door and are filled with toys, crafts, healthy snacks and more.
Bundle of Joy
Bayo Bundles are all about crafting, building, experimenting and exploring—which are all commendable pursuits for everyone, not just the wee set. Art, science, culture, and technology are all accounted for, and the souvenir and snack covers all the ‘wants' on the kiddos' list. You can even purchase a single bundle—we love the Thanksgiving-themed offering.
Word to the Nerd
We're not sure whether this subscription will appeal more to the kids or the parents (we're looking at you, Dad), because with 4-6 items including nerdy apparel, toys, and collectables from brands like Hello Kitty, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Marvel, and many more—everyone is going to be anticipating the Nerd Block arrival!
Our dual loves of food and surprises are equally appeased by the Nature Box subscription. Each month, five bags of different tasty and nutritious snacks arrive on our doorstep, allowing us to try new deliciousness and feed the gaggle. From Santa Fe corn sticks to flax fortune coins, we love that our whole family is getting into sampling the snacky surprises.
We love so many things about this delivery service: the options for young kids ages 3-4, the ability to select a theme, like science, imaginative play or art, and perhaps most importantly, the ‘sibling add-on' feature, which provides extra supplies so that everyone can have fun—no squabbles.
It’s a Wrap
Imagine pretty papers, ribbons and embellishments arriving at your doorstep just in time for the holiday season—and then the onslaught of special occasions that follow throughout the year. Gift Horse & Co offers just that, and with expert tips on how to wrap gifts so that they are purty included, you'll be the next Martha Stewart in no time.
A Whack of Whimsey
We love that Whimsey's motto is ‘Stop Pinning + Start Making!'. These monthly boxes include DIY projects with all of the instructions and supplies needed to transform us into those crafty goddesses we long to be.
These monthly capsules each relate to a different theme based on STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. A space-themed offering could contain a mini space shuttle, astronaut ice cream and an actual meteorite. The campaign is still in kickstarter mode, so if you like what you see, help move it forward!
Lest we neglect Fido, Bark Boxes offer a monthly delivery of four or more pooch products—anything from toys, bones and all-natural treats to hygiene products and innovative new gadgets. Even more barking good is the fact that a portion of profits from each box will go to help doggies-in-need.
