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 package 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.

Best Subscription Boxes for Boys
Most of the best subscription boxes for boys include shipping and handling in the cost. When they don’t, I have indicted it under subscription options. All prices were current at the time of this writing, but they may change at any time.
This subscription box takes the intimidation out of doing science with kids. The Spangler Science Club delivers amazing hands-on science to your door every month.

Do your kids love cooking? I have long been a proponent of cooking with kids. There are so many things kids learn helping out in the kitchen. Math, reading, chemistry and cooperation and more are used while following a recipe.
