Craft Gin Club

Craft Gin Club's Gin of the Month Box

What could be better than opening a monthly box containing an expertly chosen - often rare or exclusive - full-size bottle of craft gin?

Each box also includes a carefully curated array of delicious tonics, mixers and snacks, as well as a glossy magazine packed full with cocktail recipes, gin facts, quizzes, competitions (not forgetting the monthly column by Craft Gin Club’s very own celebrity ambassador, Phillip Schofield)?

Whether you chose a quarterly, bi-monthly or monthly subscription, a Craft Gin Club subscription is the perfect way to treat yourself through lockdown!

This subscription box is a fab if you love food and want to eat well but don’t have much time to spare. With more than 100 recipe kits developed by chefs and inspired by cuisines from all over the world, they have done the hard work for you!

Love Cocoa


We adore luxury chocolate makers Love Cocoa, and not just because their bars are flipping delicious (especially the Pink Gin Truffles, natch!) Founded by the great-great-great-grandson of Mr Cadbury (yes, that one!), Love Cocoa is on a mission to make great chocolate here in Great Britain that’s still sustainable and ethically sound - they’ve even teamed up with The Rainforest Foundation to try to help combat problems of deforestation, cocoa farmer poverty and human rights abuses within the cocoa industry.

Treat yourself to some yummy chocolate bars through the post each month, it’s a great way to show yourself some love!

Are you someone who loves to make your own home decorations, is a king or queen of upcycling and is never happier than when you are surrounded by balls of wool, glue guns and pots of glitter? Well, a subscription to Craftiosity could be the ideal box for you!

Inside each monthly box, they send you a craft kit with all the tools and materials you’ll need to make a complete project. It’s a great way to beat the boredom during lockdown.

If you love beer as much as gin then you can also upgrade to 10 bottles if you’re after more of that hoppy goodness!
