Okay everyone, let’s be honest, how many of you have started your holiday shopping?! Does the thought of gift buying overwhelm you? There are times when I am utterly stumped on what to buy for a family member or friend. This is where monthly subscription boxes come in! I love getting and giving these monthly boxes. There is a subscription box out there for everyone! Today I want to share some subscription box favorites. Many of these subscription boxes our family has personally received and some are boxes I’d love to try.

Kidstir (For Kids)
This monthly subscription box is great for the budding chef!
How it works: Each month of the year has a different theme, many centered around an upcoming holiday/season. The box contains recipe cards, several fun cooking tools and activities centered around cooking skills!
Review/Additional Info: My daughter received this box last year and has loved it! The first month you get the box, you will also receive a sturdy 3 ring binder to put all of your recipe cards inside! The recipes are very easy to follow and the food is kid friendly. My daughter learned kitchen skills and techniques from these kits. She has made many of the recipes over and over again!
The only downside to this subscription box is that Kidstir only has a years worth of different themes, so once you have done this for a year, you would repeat all the same recipes after another year. Overall, a high quality, engaging box that we’ve enjoyed!
