Graze – For the On-the-Go Snacker

Graze is a perfect subscription box for anyone on the go with its high-quality, healthy snacks. The premise is pretty simple. For the first box, you take a survey to note any special diets (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-avoiding) and preferences (no nuts, spicy foods, raisins). Graze uses this profile to select an initial assortment of eight snacks that they’ll send to you.  

One advantage of Graze is that they ship on your schedule. Boxes can ship weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Another advantage is that Graze allows you to adjust the box according to your dietary needs. You can choose from the 150 Calorie Box or the Protein Box, in addition to the traditional boxes. Graze makes a great gift because the recipient gets to choose. You can either send a gift box or a voucher for a set amount to allow the recipient to pick out their own snack variety. Subscriptions start at $14.99 per box. Graze.com

BONUS BOX: Freshman Fun Box and HBCU Box by Peachi Williams

Send a hello from home!

The Freshman Fun Box™️ is loaded with different items every single month to help keep parents and loved ones worry free. Designed for all college (any level) and boarding school students, the box has 6-8 full-size, name brand and specialty items every month. There’s always something to eat, wear, something for personal care, school-related items and more. Boxes can be ordered via subscription or one at a time and are shipped via priority mail. The brand also carries customized birthday boxes that can be ordered any time of year.

Boxes come in blue, green, pink, or the HBCU box, geared toward students attending historically Black colleges and universities. One of the unique features of the HBCU box is that every HBCU in the nation is listed, serving as a learning piece and outlet to promote scholarship and pride. The HBCU box was the inspiration behind the lifestyle brand, “I’m HBCU.™️”

The brand isn’t just a box, but operates as a resource. Parents and loved ones can join the Freshman Fun Box parent community on Facebook, where live sessions with financial aid representatives, physicians and other professionals who offer insight into dealing with the transition into college occur on a rotating basis. A portion of the proceeds from every box is donated to their non-profit where funds are funneled into providing boxes for less fortunate students, and the company works with other organizations developing programs to offer an entire year of boxes to scholarship recipients.
