Best Clothing Subscription Box: Stitch Fix

From $20 per month, stitchfix.com

Stitch Fix is a perfect gift for a fashionista because it's the closet that never ends. This personal style service sends clothing and accessories from more than 1,000 brands (in sizes 0–24W, including plus, petite, and maternity) for you to try on and purchase. Apart from a $20 styling fee (which is applied toward the items you buy), you only pay for what you decide to purchase.

To sign up, fill out an in-depth personal style assessment by answering questions about your shopping style, sizing, preferred brands, budget, and why you want to try Stitch Fix. Then you schedule your first delivery and choose your shipment frequency (which can be changed at any point): every two to three weeks, monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly. You can preview the items before they ship, try them on at home, and only buy what you like. Given the nature of this service, Stitch Fix offers free returns and exchanges (packages arrive with a prepaid return envelope). Once you've finished the online questionnaire, your profile is considered complete, and the next time you go back to the home page, you'll also find "trends for you" (in the freestyle section of the website) curated for your style interests from the latest fashions. Stitch Fix also offers personal styling services for men and children.
