There is a subscription box for just about everything. Consider yourself a creative person? Try ArtSnacks. Or if beauty and fitness is more your style maybe you would like FabFitFun. If it’s a hobby, interest, or even just a common idea, there will be a subscription box for it.
Subscription boxes make fantastic gifts for the Christmas season. Many boxes will let you gift a subscription to a loved one, whether it be for 1 month, 3, or even a whole year. Imagine a gift that keeps giving for the whole year! Not to mention the fun of discovering what’s in the box.
If you are reading this, you, or someone you know, probably love books. So, if you are looking for a great gift for yourself or someone you love, keep reading for 6 booky boxes.
1. Book of the Month
Book of the Month will send you 1 hardcover book each month. What sets this subscription apart is that you have some choice in what book you receive. A panel of judges will choose 5 books to offer, and you as the customer simply need to pick which one you would like to receive. Don’t like any of the options? No problem! You can simply skip a month at no additional cost. This box will cost $12 – $15 a month with gift options for 3, 6, and 12 months.
2. Uppercase Box
Uppercase is the place to go for a young adult subscription. There are two levels of this subscription: for $20, you receive only the book of that month. But for $29, you will receive the book plus a bunch of bookish goodies. The full box includes items such as magnets, stickers, and jewelry. In both forms, the book is either signed or comes with a signed book plate, and Uppercase will leave post it notes between the pages with codes to unlock exclusive content.
If you prefer to pay upfront, Uppercase has a year option of $240-$348 and gift options to prepay for up to a year.
Bookroo is a subscription box for children up to 6 years old. They aim to send books that are unlikely to be found on your shelf, but that your children will still enjoy. There are two categories depending on age: if your child is between 0 and 3, you will receive 3 new board books. If your child is between 3 and 6, you will receive 2 picture books. For additional fun, each book comes individually wrapped in tissue paper for your child to unwrap. This subscription costs $23 a month or $252 a year, with gift options for 1, 3, 6, and 12 months.
4. LitJoy Crate
This is another box that offers a little choice. You can either pick to receive a hardcover young adult novel, or 2 picture books. The crate also comes with some bookish items such as candy or bookmarks. You can pick up a LitJoy Crate for $30 a month, or $168 for 6 months. They offer gift options for 1, 3, and 6 months.
5. Signed First Club
This is the perfect box for collectors. Each month, you receive one first edition signed book. While not all signed books will maintain the $35 value of the subscription, some editions that have been featured include Stephen King’s Revival and Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch. The subscription costs $210 for 6 months, or $420 for a year, with gift options for 6 and 12 months.
6. CraftedVan Read Happy Plan
This is the only subscription on this list that doesn’t include an actual book. Rather, it focuses on bookmarks. If you or one of your favorite people regularly mark your reading spot with scraps of paper or (gasp) dog-earing, then this is the perfect subscription box for you. Each month, you will receive a mix of magnetic bookmarks and other paper goods such as stickers or greeting cards. This box costs $9 a month or $91 a year with gift options for 1, 3, 6, and 12 months.
