Holiday Gift Guide: The Best Subscription Boxes to Give and Get in 2020

I thought that with many of us staying home this year, I would kick off my 2020 Gift Guide series with my favorite subscription boxes. I have always been a huge fan of subscription boxes for the variety and convenience and I love being surprised with new and unique products each month.

Subscription boxes have become such a popular concept and there is truly a box for everyone! Below are some of my favorites that will cover everyone on your holiday list. Happy shopping and make sure to share your favorite subscription boxes in the comments!
