This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

2016-subscription-gifts-for-teens

We know that lots of teenage girls love to steal products from their mom’s beauty subscriptions, so why not gift them a subscription of their own? We looked for boxes that are affordable, fun, and typically won’t contain products like anti-aging treatments. This list includes apparel, accessories and more, not just beauty, so you can share some subscription box joy with your teen no matter what her interests.


  1. BeautyCon Box, $29 + $6.99 shipping per quarter
    For top beauty picks curated by popular YouTube personalities + social media influencers

    beauty-con-box-september-2016-004

    What’s in the box: BeautyCon Box is a quarterly beauty subscription box. They highlight different beauty influencer curators each season and send a mix of beauty and accessory items. We think this is a great pick if your teenager is already into beauty and watching YouTube tutorials nonstop!

    OK, what else should I know:
    Price: $29 + $6.99 shipping per quarter, or $99 + shipping for an annual subscription
    Frequency: Quarterly

    How to gift it: Subscribe to BeautyCon Box using your gift recipient’s shipping info. This subscription will renew until canceled.

    What’s in the box: In addition to their regular monthly beauty box, Allure teamed up with Teen Vogue for this Limited Edition box. The contents of this one-time-purchase box retail for $148, so it’s a great value, too.

    What’s in the box: Enjoy Leggings sends one pair of high quality leggings in your size every month, always with a fun print and pattern.

    The affordable box for the teen serious about trying new makeup products 

    play-by-sephora-october-2016-review

    What’s in the box: Play! by Sephora is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month they send you six samples, a PLAY! BOOK of tips and tricks, and a PLAY! PASS for in-store learning. This one isn’t specifically oriented toward teens and may contain some products with adult skin in mind, but if your teenager already loves Sephora, she’ll be really excited when you score a Sephora Play! subscription since they’re usually in waitlist mode. (If you want to make sure you can an email alert the next time Sephora subscriptions open, make sure to sign up for the My Subscription Addiction daily newsletter).

    OK, what else should I know:
    Price: $10
    Frequency: Monthly

    OK, what else should I know:
    Price: $29.99
    Frequency: Monthly

    How to gift it: OwlCrate doesn’t have a “gift subscription” option, so you’ll need to subscribe and use the recipient’s shipping address. This subscription will renew until canceled.

  9. Pusheen Box, $43.95 plus $6 shipping & handling
    For fans of the internet cat celebrity

    pusheen-box-october-2016-0004

    What’s in the box: This one is a little pricier than the others on our list, but we love Pusheen and this box has fun stuff you can’t get anywhere else. Every Pusheen Box will have a curated assortment of mystery items with a total retail value of over $100. Most of the items inside are exclusive to the box and can’t be found anywhere else. The boxes may also include rare first edition items before they are released in stores! The types of items that could be inside include clothing, accessories, electronics, toys, stationery and more!

    OK, what else should I know:
    Price: $43.95 plus $6 shipping & handling
    Frequency: Quarterly

    How to gift it: Pusheen Box doesn’t have a special gifting option. You will be buying a recurring subscription when you purchase, so if you’re only intending to gift one or two months, you need to cancel your subscription to prevent it from continuing to ship – thankfully you can easily cancel online from your account.
