Note: While I am part of some affiliate programs, none of these subscription box companies have paid me to tell you about them. I just think subscription boxes are a lot of fun. And I’m dreaming of one day actually being able to afford to try these out and give them as gifts.

Another note: BUT – if any of these companies are open to sending me a box for an honest (and probably super excited) review, email me! I’d love to review them and help these Canadian companies out.

Subscription boxes are the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year.

I’ve tracked down a ton of Canadian Subscription Boxes for you! To make it easy for you to find the right gift, I’ve broken up my list of 84 Canadian Subscription Boxes into categories. See my intro post to this series here to find links to all the Canadian Subscription Box Gift Guides.
