6 unique subscription boxes to try in 2022 (made by independent creators)

February 18, 2022

Subscription boxes are a super cool concept everyone loves. Some subscription box companies give you something with the same set of products on a weekly or monthly basis, but some subscription boxes give you something truly unique & different each week or month.

Especially for the thoughtful gift-giver, subscription boxes provide an easy way to satisfy even the hardest-to-shop-for people. Why? Well, something new & fresh is coming to the doorstep. Even if a certain month isn't a fan favorite, you might get something a little better on the next go.

Fortunately, many subscription box companies specialize in a particular interest area. For instance, subscription gift boxes for a car lover, or a subscription box for a puzzle lover, or a subscription box for a dog or cat lover. With a team of amazing curator's behind each subscription box, you can be sure whatever comes to your doorstep is something truly amazing.

Our team is a big fan of the unique & special things in life - so we searched around to put together our favorite list of 6 subscription boxes.
