You can pay by the month, six months, or by the year, making it the perfect gift. They also offer gift subscriptions, which do not auto-renew, making it even easier for you.
A one month subscription is $25. If purchasing a 12-month subscription, the price is reduced to $21.25/box. You can also choose to receive your boxes monthly or bi-monthly (what I do).
