9 Awesome Subscription Box Gifts for Under $16 A Month

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

The only thing better than giving (and receiving) a subscription gift is being able to give 6 months or a year without breaking the bank! We’ve scoured our list for boxes which are regularly $16/month or less, and picked our top favorites for gifting to the whole family. These picks are also great for office “Secret Santa” and “White Elephant” swaps!

  1. POPSUGAR Must Have Mini, $15.95/month
    Great for: A mini monthly dose of trendy beauty, fashion, and home items


    October 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have Mini

    What’s in the box: POPSUGAR Must Have Mini is a less expensive subscription box from POPSUGAR Must Have! The subscription box includes 2 full-size items, (beauty, fashion or home), and these items will be different than those featured in the regular POPSUGAR Must Have box.

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $15.95 a month
    Frequency: Monthly

    How to give as a gift: Select the Must Have Mini and the number of months you want to prepay, and go to checkout. Click on the box labeled ‘This is a gift. Gift message will be emailed to the gift recipient when item ships.’ — As long as you select the gift option, your subscription will not auto renew.

  2. Beauty Box Five, $12/month
    Great for: Deluxe & full size beauty samples without breaking the bank


    Beauty Box Five October 2016 Box

    What’s in the box: Beauty Box 5 is a subscription box that sends 5 deluxe & full-sized products to your door each month. You receive a mix of products ranging from makeup, hair care, skincare, nail polish, beauty tools, and fragrances. Luxury, drugstore & Indie brands are included.

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $12 a month (Or, buy a full year for $99 and get it for $8.25/month, cheaper than Birchbox!). Free shipping in the US.
    Frequency: Monthly

  3. Petit Vour, $15/month
    Great for: Vegan beauty mavens and anyone seeking more conscious beauty choices


    Petit Vour October 2016 Box

    What’s in the box: Petit Vour is a monthly vegan beauty subscription box. It’s a great affordable box for those looking to try out new vegan and/or natural, non-toxic beauty products.

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $15/month, available prepaid in 3, 6, or 12 month plans
    Frequency: Monthly

  4. Scentbird for Women and Scentbird for Men, $14.95/month
    Great for: When you know they love perfume/cologne, but you’re not sure what they wear


    What’s in the box: Scentbird was “born out of frustration with the “perfume graveyard” – expensive bottles of designer perfume collecting dust on your dresser or cabinet.” Subscribers receive a refillable case in their first shipment, then new perfume or cologne vials each month based on scents they want to try. We love this as a gift since scent is so personal, and buying a single bottle of perfume or cologne can be an expensive hit or miss gift — Scentbird’s gift option lets the recipient customize to their taste and get the scents they’re really interested in trying.

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $14.95/month, available prepaid in 3, 6, or 12 month plans, discounts for longer subscriptions
    Frequency: Monthly

    How to give as a gift: All of Scentbird’s gift subscriptions do not automatically renew, so just head to their gift page, select Men’s or Women’s, choose a subscription length, and checkout!

  5. PuraVida Bracelets, $14.95/month
    Great for: Women and teens into trendy bohemian style 


    Pura Vida Bracelets October 2016 Box

    What’s in the box: Each month, you’ll receive 3 hand-picked bracelets (up to $50 value) from Pura Vida‘s new collections and most popular styles. The included bracelets are seasonal and trendy, so it’s a great way to collect simple accessories year round. Plus, every purchase helps support local artisans in Costa Rica.

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $14.95/month
    Frequency: Monthly

    How to give as a gift: Pura Vida doesn’t have a gift subscription option, so to gift it, you need to subscribe to a month-to-month plan and cancel later. (Note you must call or e-mail to cancel, there is no way currently to do it from your account.)

  6. Say It With A Sock
    Great For: Anyone who likes their fashion with a side of fun

    What’s in the box:
    A pair of fun socks, with options for Women, Men, and Kids! You can choose from “Patterned” socks (for those who don’t mind color, but prefer more professional stripes and polka dots to pizza slices and tacos) or “Graphic” socks (for those who totally want pizza socks). All socks are from high-quality brands like Stance Socks and Happy Feet. And, Say It With A Sock customizes your subscription over time by asking more about your likes and dislikes.

    OK, What else should i know:
    Price: $9.99 + $3 shipping
    Frequency: Monthly

    How to give as a gift: You can prepay for a 1, 3, 6, or 12 month subscription. When you check the “This is a gift” checkbox during checkout, you can decide whether or not to renew once the subscription expires — and Say It With A Sock will let you customize an e-mail message to the gift recipient that can be scheduled to be sent later!

  7. Graze, $10.99/month
    Great for: Casual snackers young and old


    What’s in the box: Graze is a mini-snack subscription box that sends a customized selection of 8 treats weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. They offer over 100 different snacks that you can rate online, which, over time, helps tailor your subscription to your particular snacking preferences. For subscribers with food sensitivities, it’s easy to trash snacks that contain gluten, dairy, or any other specific ingredient; however, Graze snacks are produced in a facility with nuts, wheat, milk, and many other foods that might not make this subscription a good fit for anyone with severe food allergies.

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $10.95/month
    Frequency: Monthly

    How to give as a gift: Click “Gifts” on the top menu to purchase a Graze gift card, or choose from their selection of one-time boxes for gifting. Our recommendation? Do both, and ship the one-time box to yourself – that way you have a gift to wrap and give, and they can redeem the subscription gift card later!

  8. Loot Wearables by Loot Crate, $14.99/month
    Great for: Geeky, pop-culture, franchise-inspired apparel for men and women


    What’s in the box: Loot Wearables from Loot Crate sends seasonal apparel, hoodies, lounge pants and long-sleeves. This is a step up from the usual t-shirt subscription, and a fun way to round out their fandom-inspired wardrobe with some exclusive, non-tee apparel items!

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $14.99/month
    Frequency: Monthly

    How to give as a gift: You should be able to buy a gift subscription here. If you can’t find the option for Loot Wearables listed, just follow the steps on the Loot Wearables landing page to sign up, choose a size, and ship to your intended recipient.

  9. SquareHue 2-polish subscription, $16/month
    Great for: Anyone who loves bold, adventurous nails for a good cause
    What’s in the box: The $16/month version of SquareHue contains 2 full-size, trendy nail polishes, delivered monthly. Sometimes you just need something fun and easily giftable at a lower price point, and SquareHue is a great choice! Plus, their polish is 7-free, vegan, cruelty-free, and made in the USA.

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $16/month for 2 polishes, $21/month for 3. Discounts available for longer subscription terms.

    How to give as a gift: Under “Subscribe”, choose “Gift Nail Polish Box”. You can choose the 2 or 3 polish box, and then set the gift subscription to last 3, 6, or 9 months, after which time the subscription will end.

  1. I thought the PopSugar Mini box was $18.95..the reviews say 18.95, but this post says $15.95…did the price change?

    • The price was recently reduced (only a couple weeks ago) so that change did just happen and the box will be $15.95 going forward 🙂

    • Yes, they’ve lowered the price to $15.95! 🙂
