5 Fantastic Subscription Boxes You Want For Christmas

Hey Cuties,

Hello Cyber Monday, I’ve got five subscription boxes that would be great Christmas gifts. Black Friday is gone, Small Business Saturday is done, and Cyber Monday is bringing up the rear with additional discounts.  Subscription boxes can be a one-time thing or a Christmas gifts that give all year long.

This morning I shared these incredible subscription boxes on WUSA 9 Great Day DC. I will share the segment as soon as I get the clip.

I went for a variety of subscription boxes, one size doesn’t fit all. Sometimes you have a person that is hard to shop for. Find out their interest and see if you can find a subscription box they would enjoy. Sometimes you just have to think outside of the box. Here are five that I’m feeling and you might be too.
