Kiwi Crate 3-Month Subscription
Best for: Creative kids
Shopping for kids can be tough—especially if you don’t have your own children at home. Plus, one thing just about everyone knows is how quickly the little ones tire of their toys. Rather than stand on line for this season’s biggest craze, let the experts at Kiwi Crate select the gifts for you.
Frequency and fees: $60 for three months, $110 for six months, and $205 for 12 months; free shipping.
Pros: The lucky recipient will look forward to getting a themed crate, filled with experiments, projects, and games, once a month for a period of three months. Select the appropriate age range to ensure your niece, nephew, or grandchild gets the box best suited for them.
Cons: You could probably buy the raw materials for less, but part of what you’re paying for is the inspiration.
