Who says subscription boxes are just for Millennials?
Baby Boomers also deserve a monthly delivery of goodies, whether it’s a box filled with healthy snacks, mindful living essentials, stationaries, crafting tools, and a lot more.
In case you don’t what these subscription boxes are yet, it’s a craze that has been taking the retail world by storm. For a monthly subscription fee, a company will send you a box or a crate filled with curated products with one theme, straight to your doorstep.
There are gazillions of brands in the market today. Just choose what type of products you or your loved one would want to receive each month based on interests, hobbies, lifestyle, etc.
Here are my top favorite Subscription Boxes for Grandma & Grandpa:
A subscription box designed for individuals 65 and older, who will get a care package with at least five full sized items along with family photos and a personalized note from the sender. Each month, the team from Grand Box curates various products based on what the theme is for that specific month. For example, Movie Night at the Drive-In, Farmer’s Market Fun, etc.
Good health should be a top priority in everyone’s lives, especially in aging adults. But healthy eating doesn’t mean you can’t snack on yummy food. Treat grandma and granda with healthy snacks that taste good every month with the Urthbox subscription. Urthbox only delivers the healthiest and most delicious treats handpicked by a nutritionist and according to the type of box you have chosen – Classic, Gluten-Free, Vegan or Diet box. By the way, all products are organic and non-GMO.
Sure, you can send photos through email, Facebook, i-Message or postal services but Ginger Snap Crate takes your photos to a whole new level. Grandma and Grandpa will love seeing photos of their kids and grandkids in different unique and creative forms. The digital artists at GingerSnapCrate will add an artistic touch to your favorite photos, print them in the newest and coolest of ways (e.g. photo books, mugs, aprons, grocery totes, etc.) and send them to the receiver in a box or crate.

Crafting is one of the many ways to slow age-related mental deterioration, and it doesn’t just exercise the mind but the hands too. So get your aging loved ones a monthly subscription box of high quality materials needed to complete a craft.
Gardening has a number of positive effects on aging. It’s a good mental and physical exercise and helps relieve stress & anxiety. My Garden Box sends live plants, cool containers, growing media and unique accents to help grow a green thumb and make a DIY garden. Don’t worry, the box comes with a photographically illustrated instructions and care tips.
Surprise Grandpa with a box of lures, jigs, spinnerbaits, soft plastics and decals to restock his tackle box every month with the Mystery Tackle Box subscription. You have the option to get him a printable certificate so he can customize his own box according to the type of species he likes to fish.
Yoga and Meditation are two practices that can help an individual stay mentally and physically fit. This Buddhibox is a package filled with yoga-friendly products to inspire and encourage mindful living.
For a monthly dose of spiritual inspiration, a Loved & Bless subscription delivers a themed box containing different items to remind the receiver of God’s love.
Subscription boxes are great gift ideas to get your family members, friends and even yourself. Hope this helps you with your holiday shopping!
