If you love cute surprise mail and cute characters, a kawaii subscription box is a great idea. Our guide will help you choose the best box by comparing price, selection and shipping.
For our guide, we’re including kawaii subscription boxes from all over the world that we have personally reviewed. Boxes are ordered by how recently we have reviewed a box. Prices shown are for a monthly rolling subscription but discounts are usually available if you pay for 3, 6 or 12 months in advance. Most signup links are affiliate links which means your subscription helps support Super Cute Kawaii at no extra cost to you.
