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

Subscription Boxes for the Kid at Heart
2017 was a great year for fun, nostalgic subscription boxes aimed at adults. No matter what your interests are, you’re sure to find some great subscription gifts in our list of recommended boxes for the “Kid at Heart” below!

Editor’s Note: This list is more geared toward more general interest nostalgia and fun, so if you’re looking for geek, gamer, or fandom boxes, check out our list of Geek Subscriptions for every Geek, Nerd, and Gamer!

Subscription Boxes for the Kid at Heart


The Nick Box: For anyone who grew up daydreaming about taking home a piece of the Aggro Crag



Why we recommend it:
Pretty much the entire My Subscription Addiction team grew up with a steady diet of Nickelodeon, and we are all obsessed with this box. It’s an amazing, nostalgic trip down memory lane for anyone who grew up watching TV in the 90s.

What’s in the box?
You can expect to get over $100 worth of toys, apparel/accessories, and home decor — all of which are exclusive, officially licensed products designed for Nick Box that you can’t get anywhere else. Each box has a theme to give you an idea of what to expect; they’ve done Nick Toons themes as well as Live Action shows and more. Check out all of our Nick Box Reviews and Spoilers to get an idea of what to expect.

Price: $49.99 plus $7 shipping & handling, every 3 months

How to give as a gift:
Nick 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.


Pusheen BoxFor the friend who isn’t shy about their love for internet cat celebrities

A group shot of Pusheen Box Fall 2017

Why we recommend it:

This is seriously the cutest subscription box we’ve ever seen, and it arrives in the cutest box we’ve ever seen too!

What’s in the box?
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.Check out all of our Pusheen Box Reviews and Spoilers to get an idea of what to expect.

Price: $43.95 plus $6 shipping & handling, every 3 months

How to give as a gift: 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.


Sanrio Small Gift Crate:For those who love the original celebrity cat (and all of her friends!)


Why we recommend it: Let’s be honest: Hello Kitty is our favorite 90s pop icon. We’re also big fans of Gudetama (the lazy egg!) and a whole host of other Sanrio characters, so this box from Loot Crate is a really fun and kawaii gift experience. Like the first two boxes on this list, you can expect some toys like vinyl figures and plushies, but also functional accessories like dish ware, shirts or other accessories, and more.

What’s in the box? The Sanrio Small Gift Box includes exclusive collectibles, apparel, and accessories featuring Hello Kitty and friends that you won’t find anywhere else, and a retail value over $75. You can check out all of our Sanrio Box Reviews to learn more!

Price: $34.99 a box + $5 shipping, ships quarterly

How to give as a gift: Go to Loot Crate’s Gift Page to select this box, and choose the duration of your gift subscription (1, 2, or 4 boxes). Even Gudetama thinks it’s pretty easy to give this box as a gift. 🙂


Candy ClubFor the sweet tooth who misses the days of penny candy

Why we recommend it:
Candy Club is pure fun in a box. If you ever spent your last nickels and dimes at the corner store buying stale Swedish Fish and Sour Patch Kids from a big bulk bin, Candy Club is a nice upgrade: all the fun, with an always-changing variety of super fresh gummies, sour straws, licorice candies, and more.

What’s in the box?
2-3 pounds of premier, brand name candy in each box! Subscribers receive three candies packaged individually in Candy Club containers, and an extra wrapped candy in the box, too. When purchasing as a gift, you can specify Sweets, Sours, or a Mix. Good to know: You can also upgrade to get up to 6 pounds of candy. Check out all of our Candy Club Reviews to learn more about this subscription!

Price: $27.99/month + shipping

How to give as a gift: You can buy a 3, 6, or 12 month gift subscription – just choose “Give A Gift” on their homepage. Use this link to save $20 off your gift subscription purchase!


OwlCrateFor book worms who aren’t afraid to admit they love YA fiction

Why we recommend it:
Because we believe YA is for everyone, regardless of age! OwlCrate is our most popular YA book subscription, and their boxes contain more than just books so it’s a nice gifting experience as well.

What’s in the box:
A hardcover book, plus 3-5 other goodies, all oriented around a common theme. Check out all of our OwlCrate Reviews to learn more about this subscription!

Price: $29.99/month

How to give as a gift: When you subscribe to OwlCrate, you can set your subscription up as a gift, and the recipient will receive an email when their first box ships. You can also choose whether or not you want the gift order to renew, or expire at the end of the term you paid for.


Say It With A Sock: For anyone who likes their fashion with a side of fun


Why we recommend it:
Growing up, we loved to spend our hard-earned allowance at the “crazy sock store” in the mall, buying funky socks to express ourselves and tell the world that we were different. Say It With A Sock is a bit like the grown up version of that, with high-quality brands like Stance Socks and Happy Feet, and fun designs appropriate for all ages.

What’s in the box:
A pair of fun socks! 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). And, Say It With A Sock customizes your subscription over time by asking more about your likes and dislikes. Check out all of our Say It With A Sock Reviews to learn more about this subscription!

Price: $9.99 + $3 shipping / month

How to give as a gift: Say It With A Sock is set up for gifting! When you give a gift, you can select a reason for the gift (such as Anniversary, Birthday, Thank You, etc) and add the gift recipient’s email address. You can customize a message to the gift recipient that will be printed in a card in their first box, and then they’ll be e-mailed with shipment info for their 2nd month onward.


Quirky Crate: For friends with bright, bold style and a sense of humor

Why We Recommend It: Quirky Crate definitely won’t overlap with their Popsugar or FabFitFun subscription! Each month arrives with a selection of, well, quirky items that are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face– especially those who love to add a little bit of unique flair to their outfits.

What’s in the box: You will receive at least 5-8 quirky items, including an enamel pin from a featured pin artist each box. Typical items received have included wearable accessories like socks and jewelry, household items, and even fun small handbags shaped like ice cream cones and milk cartons!

Price: $34.99 + shipping

How to Give as a Gift: When you choose to gift QuirkyCrate, you can enter the gift recipient’s email at checkout, and they’ll get a notification when their gift order ships. You can also choose whether or not you want the gift order to renew, or expire at the end of the term you paid for.

 


Nerdy Post: A geeky subscription for original art, pins, and more

It's back to school season for Harry Potter and Nerdy Post for August 2017!

Why We Recommend It: Nerdy Post is a unique gift idea because they send original artwork from their founder, Alexis, themed around various literary and cinematic fandoms, including: prints, stickers, lapel pins, bookmarks, and more. There’s even a NerdyTees subscription you can add on, that matches the theme every month!

If they love unique art and Harry Potter and Doctor Who and Pride & Prejudice and Pixar movies and more you’ve never even heard of… then they’d love this box. (Subscribers do get a chance to skip any months they aren’t interested in!)

What’s Inside the Box: 5-7 exclusive items centered around a popular fandom from books, movies, or TV. Check out all of our Nerdy Post reviews to see past themes

 

The Price: $13.95 a month. The Nerdy Tees subscription is $15.95 a month. US shipping is $6.00.  COUPON: Use code MSA10 to save 10% off your first box!

How to Give as a Gift: When you choose to gift NerdyPost, you can enter the gift recipient’s email at checkout, and they’ll get a notification when their gift order ships. You can also choose whether or not you want the gift order to renew, or expire at the end of the term you paid for.


BrickLoot: For LEGO fans of all ages

Why We Recommend It: Brick Loot is a subscription box for LEGO and Brick lovers that sends out mini build kits, minifigures and even accessories around a different theme each month! While it’s totally kid appropriate, lots of adults love it, too, especially for the exclusive goodies you can’t get anywhere else.

What’s Inside the Box: Custom brick kits, minifigs, LEGO and brick accessories from various manufacturers and Brick Loot exclusives. Check out all of our Brick Loot reviews to see examples (and finished builds!)

The Price: $27 a month + $6 shipping to the US. Use code MSA10 to save 10% off of any length subscription!

How to Gift It: You can buy a Brick Loot Gift Subscription for 1, 3, or 6 months. (Gift subscriptions will not renew once they expire.)


Pipsticks: For longtime penpals, and BFFs who always had the best decorated Trapper Keeper


Why we recommend it:
Lots of us had sticker collections growing up, and we love the monthly dose of happiness that Pipsticks delivers! There’s nothing on earth that can’t be improved with a few well-placed tiny glitter unicorns and cute food stickers.

What’s in the box:
There are two sizes to pick from: The “Classic” plan comes with 15+ sheets each month plus other goodies, while “Petite” comes with 7+ sheets. You can also choose the “Pro Club” for adults and the “Kid’s Club” for the younger sticker lovers you know. Check out all of our Pipsticks Reviews to learn more!

That’s all, folks! We leave you with one very important question: Why isn’t there a Lisa Frank Subscription Box already? 🤔
