In full swing in recent years: boxes (beauty, outings, gastronomy etc) are all the rage on the Web and our children are not left behind!
Which theme(s) to choose?
Whether they are passionate about science, budding cooks or we want to develop their creativity or raise their awareness to ecology: no more headaches to find THE gift that will make them happy for Christmas or their birthday: the boxes will meet the expectations of the whole family so the choice is vast!
Some sites even offer you to customize the boxes so that they correspond as much as possible to your child's interests.
Monthly subscription or single purchase?
While the vast majority of sites offer only subscriptions (usually monthly, 3, 6 or 12 months), some others have adapted to more specific requests and also offer boxes individually (also called "kits")...no need to subscribe so!
This last proposal is great if you want to test the concept before you start a long-term subscription.
The tacit renewal
If you opt for a subscription, you should pay particular attention to its potential tacit renewal.
Indeed, a non-binding subscription does not mean that it will not be renewed automatically.
Many sites have chosen this automatic renewal system at the end of each subscription to "facilitate" subscribers' steps, but it may not be suitable for those who want to maintain control of their monthly budget.
