9 subscription services that make the perfect gift
Subscription boxes are gifts that keep on giving. Not only will your loved one be ecstatic to receive the first box, but they’ll also be reminded of your thoughtfulness every time a new one shows up on their doorstep.
Throughout the past few years, subscription boxes have gained popularity, and now there’s an option for just about everything. From books to beauty, cookies to clothes, there’s a subscription box for everyone on your list.
For the book worm
With so many books to choose from, it can be nice to let someone else pick the reading list. MyBookBox has options for all ages and many genres, so you can give the avid reader in your life their very own book-of-the-month club.
For the one who loves baking treats
Make it easier than ever to bake the perfect cookie. Tasty’s first-ever food-based subscription box, LG | Tasty Cookie Club, features helpful tools and delicious recipes designed to be baked best in an LG ProBake Oven — which can be controlled remotely through WiFi and offers convection technology that distributes optimum heat for faster baking times.
For the caffeinated
Most people know someone who can’t live without their morning coffee. Make sure that person is never far from their next cup with a gift subscription from Driftaway Coffee. They’ll receive freshly roasted whole-bean coffee from around the world. The first box comes with a tasting kit, and once subscribers note their preferences, they’ll receive future deliveries catered to their specific taste.
For the pampered person
Experimenting with new hair and skin products can be expensive. But with Birchbox, you can enter specific details about your loved one and they’ll receive five mini high-end products each month, specifically tailored to their unique needs.
For the trendsetter
Give the gift of a personal stylist to help your loved one stay on trend without the hassle of shopping. Stitch Fix assigns your own personal stylist to send a customized selection of clothes through the mail whenever you need it. Pay for what you keep and send the rest back for free.
For the clean-shaven
Sometimes the best gift is the most practical. Here’s a subscription box you know they’ll use. Billie has a direct-to-consumer model that cuts down the cost of shaving supplies like razor handles, cartridges and holders.
For the plant person
A box of pretty blooms from Bouqs makes the perfect gift. Choose your cadence — weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or bi-monthly — and select your flower style. You can even create custom blends of fresh seasonal flowers.
