12 Canadian Subscription Boxes You Need To Try

The subscription box trend started in 2010 with the launch of Birchbox, the original beauty subscription box. In 2011, a few more companies jumped on the trend, but it wasn’t until 2012 that it really started to take off. The trend originated in the US, so for the first few years, Canadian subscription addicts had very few options. Fast forward a couple years and now some of the best subscription box companies are located right here in Canada, with a few of them being even closer to home..
