Whether it’s beauty, books or food, subscription services have taken the world by storm. From getting a surprise in the post every month to not having to leave the house to be indulged, they can help ease everyday life and make things a little more exciting. If you’re looking for a treat for a friend (or perhaps even for yourself) we’ve picked out some of our favourite services to get you started.
Choose from weekly, monthly or even bi-yearly deliveries to give someone something to look forward to when the postman arrives, other than another hefty bill. The gift of a subscription box provides something special that a one-off gift can’t always give, as it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Even if they’ve forgotten about it, on a gloomy day it’ll be sure to cheer them up when they see that package arrive month after month. From beauty queens to amateur chefs you’ll be sure to find a box that fits their passion.
If they love cooking up a storm in the kitchen or channeling their inner mixologist then a food or drink themed box will not only provide great recipes and fun but also convenience. If they are more of the literary or musical kind, pick them a service that’ll deliver surprises for their artistic side to play with, be it a new novel or music recommendation. Beauty boxes are one of the original subscription ideas, so treat that glamazon to one that will let her experiment with products and perhaps even discover a new holy grail. Or if you know a dapper gent who loves to jazz up his work suits, get him a bowtie subscription that’ll give him a new look to try out every month.
With so many types of boxes to choose from, you’ll be sure to find one that suits their lifestyle. If you’re still looking for a little more inspiration, head to the bottom where you’ll find a link to our guide to choosing the ultimate subscription box.
