Still looking for the ultimate gift idea for a crocheter? I have a few for you! How about a crochet subscription box?
I’m constantly asked what I’d like for Christmas, my birthday, anniversary, (insert holiday here) and the answer is always YARN! What better gift idea than a box complete with a pattern, supplies, and other fun tools and accessories? I can’t think of any!
What is a Crochet Subscription Box?
A crochet subscription box is a box of goodies pre-packaged by a company containing products related to crochet. The contents of each box varies month-to-month, so you can “subscribe” and receive a single box, or a box each month!
Why Should I Buy a Crochet Subscription Box?
Simple — it provides hours of entertainment for your loved one. Crocheters often search for new projects, and love new challenges. Receiving a box like this is kind of like a treasure hunt for us. Whether the box is focused on a single project itself, teaching us a new technique, or allowing us to use a new yarn we might not have bought on our own, these boxes make us smile!
How Much Does a Crochet Subscription Box Cost?
It varies, depending on the value of what’s in the box. Some start at $10 per month, and the price travels upwards to $100 (based upon frequencies such as monthly, quarterly, or one-time). When considering the price of the box, you also want to make sure that you account for shipping costs. Some companies charge extra for this, while some include it free, depending on where you live.
Where Can I Get a Crochet Subscription Box?
You can order them online, of course! I’ve put together a list of all of the crochet subscription boxes that I’m aware of today. Have a new one? Reach out and let me know! I might add it to the list!
Annie’s Kit Clubs
Annie’s has several different crochet subscription boxes available, and each one deserves mentioning because they are phenomenal!
This kit club is one of a kind because it empowers the recipients to crochet for a cause! If you’ve ever donated a crochet item, you know how incredibly special it feels to be able to use your talent to give back, and Annie’s is helping us do that by offering a monthly project that we can donate!

Crochet Subscription Boxes (in no particular order)
