Best Kids Gift Guide for Subscription Boxes – Christmas 2020

I love giving subscription boxes as gifts for birthdays and Christmas! Its a gift that keeps on giving month after month.

An added bonus is I consider these to be a clutter-free, minimalist type of gift. I hate the idea of buying a meaningless gift that will add to the clutter and overwhelm that is typical in most households where young children live.

Below you will find a few of my favorite subscription boxes for kids.

Kids Gift Guide -Book Subscription Boxes

Epic Books Membership/Subscription

Epic!  Is probably my favorite “subscription” service because it is entirely digital.  Now I LOVE books and I think for the most part they should be read in paper form.  There is science behind this idea but I won’t bore you with that here.  

However, I think Epic is a great option for giving you kids something to do when you can’t cart around a bunch of books!  Traveling, Airports, maybe even at church if that’s your thing.  It’s a great non clutter gift for toddlers, young children and even tweens.

In my house, we try to be as screen-free as possible BUT if I am going to give screen time you better believe I’m going to give them Epic! To use instead of just mindless scrolling on YouTubeKids or some random, pointless game.

Epic! Has a HUGE library of over 40,000 children’s books.  They offer bilingual books, read-to-me, chapter books, and more.  

As a parent, you have the ability to “assign” books to your children’s account.  I like to do this for holiday titles so they have access to all the Christmas or Halloween or whatever occasion.

The best part is Epic! Offers a 30-day FREE trial!  I can promise you won’t be disappointed to give this gift!  It is one of my favorite gifts to give year-round, but especially at Christmas.

Thousands of high quality titles.

    I think subscription boxes are great because of the novelty. Reading is one of those things that just might need that novelty to keep kids engaged, to be honest, so a book subscription box sounds great.

    My stepdaughter would love Epic. She loves reading. She goes through a lot of books. I am definitely going to check this out for Christmas for her.
