Default Subscription boxes

I am thinking about doing subscription boxes for my family this Christmas. And am kind of stuck on my 15yo son and 19yo daughter.
15yo likes gaming and being outdoors (biking, mountain boarding), RC trucks and working in cars.
19yo daughter is at college had a preppy but boho style is also ROTC and criminal justice also likes to be outside.

I am thinking of doing a battlbox for Hubs and Universal Yums for my 16yo daughter.

What ideas do you have for the others?

I did Ipsy for my daughter and daughter in law last year. They both liked it.

I bet your 19 yr old would like Causebox (usually has codes) or maybe Maker Crate from Kiwi Co (always has codes available, and ebates!) or (more affordably!) Pura Vida jewelry club.

For your son, maybe Nomadik (usually has a code.)

Thank you! These are helpful.

Pura vida bravely club and either cause box or wild woman look like a good fit for my 19 yo.

So many choices for my son. The question now becomes which one can I get him that my husband won’t also want.
