Subscription boxes are a fabulous gift for the ones you love, especially when they live far away. Not only do you give a gift on the holidays but the recipient continues to recieve wonderful presents throughout the year and new subscription boxes are popping up on a continuous basis.

A craft-based box is the perfect gift for the crafter who has everything. Each one contains all of the materials needed to make a variety of fun projects. These are just a few (of many) to consider.

The Hippie Hobby

If you enjoy DIY crafts, which also happen to be environmentally friendly, look no further than The Hippie Hobby. This eco-friendly crafting kit delivers surprise DIY crafts to your door every other month. The cost is just under a dollar a day per craft project.

To get an idea of what’s in store, past shipments of groovy craft kits included a floating candles kit, a bath tea kit, and essential oil diffuser necklace kit and a DIY lip balm kit. The cost of each box is under $25. Shipping is free in the U.S.

Green Kid Crafts

It’s no secret that kids love to get mail. Imagine their surprise when this box shows up on the doorstep each month! The award-winning Green Kid Crafts subscription box provides fun and educational crafts for children ages 3 to 10.

Each themed-box contains between five and eight individual crafts centered around math, technology, engineering, art and science. Scads of previous themes are still available for purchase.  Fun topics like Arctic science, botany box, legends and folktales, fingerprint kit and gifts made by me. Discovery boxes start at just $19.95. Single project kits are available as well.

Holly Journals

This subscription box is designed to truly inspire the inner writer or artist. With a monthly subscription to Holly Journals, not only do you get a handmade (limited edition) journal, you’ll also receive themed accessories, tasty treats and writing ideas and tips designed to inspire your creativity through journaling. Starting at $39.95 per month, a subscription to Holly Journals is an amazing value for people who regularly use journals, whether it be for work, school or just for fun.  

Adult Color Box

Adult coloring books are incredibly popular lately, as more and more people are discovering that coloring relieves stress, encourages creativity and is a very effective relaxation method. It’s a simple hobby to learn, one that’s cost efficient for people who can’t or simply don’t want to spend a fortune.

Adult Color Box provides subscribers with coloring books and fun supplies on a monthly basis for $27. The company curates these supplies from a variety of sources and sends out up to eight full-size products in every package. Get ready for hours of relaxing entertainment that just might make you feel like a kid again! Prepay for at least three months, to receive a discount.

A subscription box membership really is the “gift that keeps on giving.” These days, there are tons of options to choose from. Even better, you still have time to order for the holidays. If you’re searching for unique craft-related (or other) gifts that won’t end up gathering dust in the back of a closet, subscription boxes definitely fit the bill.
