One of my favorite things is to get a monthly subscription box. It is always a thrill to receive a surprise package in the mail (even if I sent it to myself!). Kids love getting mail, too! It makes them feel special to open up a box with their name on it. That’s one of the many reasons why I think a kids’ monthly subscription box is a great gift idea. *I keep the list below up-to-date with the latest coupon codes and special offers*
