1. DreamOnMaddie - British, approx. 1600 subscribers
DreamOnMaddie crafts really pretty, thoughtful, and funny videos that deal with her thoughts and feelings on life and living and being. The editing is smart and cute, and every time I watch a new video I feel like I've drank up a nice little lake.
2. Margot Vandersmissen - Belgian, approx. 700 subscribers
Margot makes simple videos often about things she is enthusiastic about, like Harry Potter and beds, but the charm of her videos is her natural humour, pacing, and expressions. She cracks me up. She also posts songs, which are pretty ace.
3. ellawelly - British, approx. 6000 subscribers
With fun editing elements and silly humour similar to DreamOnMaddie, ellawelly is another YouTuber keen on musing about the way we think with a little bit of surreal and humorous flair, à la KickthePj.
4. SoSonia - American, approx. 5600 subscribers
SoSonia makes incredibly stylistic, cinematic videos. She is inspiring, genuine, creative, and so hardworking, Her videos are like little pieces of the best version of the world.
5. grimbleism - Australian, approx. 9000 subscribers
These videos look like they've aired on e4. More like short films than YouTube videos, grimbleism's channel is a funny and slightly spooky little world.
I also keep a list of recommended channels at the top right corner of my YouTube channel page, so if you're looking for more channels to check out, please do go and scout through my list and I'll keep adding to it indefinitely. I try to focus on adding channels with smaller subscriber counts to this box as I know it's harder to find them.
An honorary mention also goes to Haley Blais (approx. 30,000 subscribers), because she's amazing.
