Subscription boxes are extremely popular right now, which makes them an easy go-to gift for the upcoming holiday season. With a few clicks, you can have gifts purchased for all of your friends and family members – with no shopping or wrapping involved! Easy peasy, right?? But how do you know which subscription boxes are worth the money? Check out our top boxes for everyone on your list…
1. Stitch Fix – for your Fashionista Friend
Stitch Fix sends you a box with 5 items for you to try out, based on your customized style profile. You simply keep what you like, and send back anything you don’t like. Shipping is free both ways! The styling fee for each box is $20, and that’s applied to anything you decide to keep. I especially love the fact that you get to try things on in your own home, since I don’t have a lot of time to shop! More info HERE.
