Subscription boxes are the gifts that keep on giving.

Whether you subscribe for three months or 12, you’re essentially giving several gifts but without the hassle of shopping and wrapping each one.

And to save you even more time and effort, Amazon has stepped up its subscription box game. Not only does the site literally have all of the things, its subscription box service has kits for every need and budget.

Beauty fans, snackers, kids, pet owners – it’s all there. And each month has a different theme so they’re never getting the same products twice. It’s basically the holidays every month, and they have you to thank for that.

If you’re going to give a subscription box this season, these 18 are all great choices.
