Awesome and Fun Subscription Boxes for the Holidays

Take your holiday shopping to the next level!

Looking for unique and thoughtful gift ideas this holiday season? Whether you’re shopping for kids, grandparents, newlyweds or pets, there’s a subscription box for everyone on your list!

On Fox 2 Detroit, SUBTA Co-Founder, Paul Chambers, talks about the joy and value subscriptions bring, while presenting some of the hottest subscription boxes in today’s market.


Various subscription boxes pop up every day and fall into one of two categories: discovery and delight, a convenient way for customers to discover new products related to a specific interest, and replenishment, a ready supply of products to restock what has been consumed.

Much of the explosive growth of subscriptions has been due to these companies’ ability to curate unique experiences and, therefore, promise double, triple or even quadruple the value of what you pay.

Ready to gift someone a personal and thoughtful experience?
