Last Minute Gift Idea: Subscription Boxes! - Newtown Moms

My daughters received subscription boxes from Kiwi Crate this Christmas from one of my aunts who lives out of state. I can’t tell you how excited I was to see the gift and how jazzed I am for them to try it over the course of the next few months. Subscription boxes are a wonderful gift idea either for your own children or someone else’s. As a kid, it’s so fun to receive something in the mail and it is definitely something different & unique to look forward to. Here’s a list of subscription boxes to consider for the 2020 season
