Subscription boxes make great gifts for kids. Rather than getting a gift once and playing with it and forgetting about it, subscription boxes offer a new treat each month. Kids love to get mail and getting a packjage every month that provides fun and learning opportunities is the best kind of mail there is. We have tried and tested many subscription boxes and have found some favorites that we think would appeal especially to boys. Most girls would also love these boxes, but I think the specific themes and topics would be loved by any boy. These are the Best Subscription Boxes for Boys that I have discovered. Some contain activities geared toward learning, and others are more for fun or hobbies. Whatever the theme, each box contains a ton of fun! For special subscription boxes for all the kids on your list, be sure to check out Best Subscription Boxes for Kids.

Whether your boy likes tinkering, creating, or experimenting there is a KiwiCo box for them. KiwiCo were the first subscription boxes for kids that we ever received. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. These kid tested activities were designed by a community of parents. They are perfect for busy or working moms. Moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution!
Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offers a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
