This subscription is perfect for those late nights studying! (Use this link to save $10 on your first month.)

Dollar Shave Club is perfect for the young male student in your life. Let’s be honest. He may be a little spoiled when it comes to shopping for toiletries and shaving supplies. This subscription will make sure he doesn’t run out of razors (no more excuse for stubble) and starts at just $1/month!

Julep is a different spin on the beauty box. While they do have beauty products available, nail polish is their signature product. These are high value boxes and your gift recipient will be able to customize each box she receives. Two, four and six box gift subscriptions are available.
