If you’re looking for unique non-toy gift ideas for younger children this year, you’ll want to check out this list of subscription boxes for toddlers! This list was thoughtfully put together based on either a first-hand experience of boxes my kids loved when they were younger and/or suggestions from readers!
The cool thing about monthly boxes is that it’s the gift that keeps on giving for the length of the subscription — whether it’s 3 months, 6 months, or an entire year!
When our kids were younger, we used to ask their grandparents to gift this to them. It’s a wonderful clutter-free gift idea and kids have SO much fun running to the mailbox each month excited about what they’re going to get.

When I polled my followers on Instagram, this was one that SO many people messaged me about!
Young Wild & Friedman was started by a family with the goal of providing sensory play kits to younger kids. They have SO many fun kits and sensory bins to choose from! You can buy kits individually or sign up for a monthly subscription.
This was another subscription box for toddlers that my readers raved about!
LovEvery is a Montessori stage-based play subscription service for kids up to age 3, so it’s tailored to much younger children. They have play kits for very specific age ranges, starting as young as 0-12 weeks and going all the way up to 34-36 months.
There are SO many different types of kits to choose from!
4. Ivy Kids
Ivy Kids Kits are developed for kids ages 3-8 by early childhood teachers who have kids of their own. Their goal is to provide monthly resources and tools to parents and caregivers looking to have more meaningful learning experiences with their children.
Each month, you will receive a kit containing more than ten activities based upon a classic children’s book. The activities are carefully crafted to encourage curiosity, problem solving, and creativity in young children!
The Ivy Kids Kit games and projects are a fun way to develop fine and gross motor muscles, build math and literacy skills, encourage reading comprehension, and promote scientific thinking.
5. Raddish Kids
Raddish Kids is a monthly cooking club for kids. Each kit comes with 3 recipes, a quality kid-sized kitchen tool, a creative kitchen project, a monthly collectible, 3 culinary skill lessons, and a complete grocery list.
With these monthly hands-on cooking kits, kids get to build their own cookbooks, try new foods, and gain important life skills in the kitchen.
