It’s coming on Christmas, and present buying season is in full swing! If you’re struggling to buy for the “person who has everything” or you’re looking to branch out from bodywash and chocolates, we’ve rounded up our top 10 gift subscription boxes for Christmas. They’re the gift that keeps on giving!
We’re a country of gin lovers, and you’re sure to win favours with even the hardest to please Grinch with this craft gin subscription. What could be better than a hand picked (often exclusive!) bottle paired with mixers, snacks, and a 54 page magazine stuffed with cocktails and recipes galore?! Whether you chose quarterly, bi-monthly or monthly, your recipient is sure to be ginpatiently awaiting each exciting new gin arriving on their doorstep!
Taking the hassle out of meal planning, Hello Fresh is the genius way to make delicious food from scratch whilst life keeps you busy! All the fresh, pre-portioned ingredients you need to cook tasty weekly recipes are delivered right to your door, with options for dietary requirements and fussy eaters. Set up a subscription to surprise your significant other, or buy a gift card so that your loved ones can share the joy of cooking whenever they like.
The premise is simple: they discover new beers, and send 8 different bottles to your door each month to try with Ferment magazine and a snack to enjoy with them. Each box is expertly curated to different styles and themes, with the option to choose just light or a mixed selection, and you can upgrade to 10 bottles if you’re after more hoppy goodness!
The beauty box was the original trendsetter, opening up an entire world of subscription boxes. We like Latest in Beauty for their option to chose what goes in your box each month, meaning you get the chance to try the products you’ve had your eye on, and you’re never left with samples that end up cluttering the back of the bathroom cabinet! For the more curated gift, they have some fabulous collection boxes - check out up the stellar lineup in the Good Housekeeping Christmas box!
The season of indulgence wouldn’t be complete without a smorgasbord of cheese, and the Cheese Society is here to take you on a journey of dairy-ing discovery! 5 cuts of expertly picked cheese are wrapped and packed by hand by this Lincoln based family business, allowing you to try new and adventurous cheeses that you won’t be finding in your local Sainsburys. It’s moo-sic to our ears!
A big bouquet of flowers is a surefire way to put a smile on your best friend’s face - and sending them a monthly subscription from Bloom and Wild means they’ll be smiling all year long! Their clever hassle free letterbox packing mean you can send a beautifully crafted bouquet from the Flower Team of their favourite stems each month. Blooming marvellous!
It does what it says on the tin: cured meats as far as the eye can see! 4-6 premium quality meats will arrive on your doorstep each month, and these won’t be the selection pack you normally grab in your supermarket - think lamb, venision and herbed up selections. You can guarantee this one won’t be added to the “regift” pile!
With the evenings nipping at our toes, there’s nothing quite like a hearty bowl of carb filled goodness to warm the soul. Pasta Evangelista are here to banish the sad looking defrosted spag bol to distant memory! Their goal is to show off the world of craftsmanship and centuries of artisanal tradition that goes into pasta, delivering beautiful sauces, fresh handmade pasta and delicious garnishes to your door. Expect delights such as black truffle and burrata ravioli and pumpkin stuffed gnocci that can be cooked and plated in five minutes flat. Belissimo!
Anyone that’s tried to become more conscious of their environmental impact knows how confusing it is to navigate endless ingredient lists and deceptive labels! Petit Vour is a cruelty-free and vegan beauty box that curate the best of the best of green beauty, allowing you to try out new brands whilst channelling your money towards natural and ethical businesses. A wonderful gift for your beauty loving friends!
Last but certainly not least, the most humble and maligned of Christmas gifts: the sock! Once the lame, forgotten about present of your childhood, nothing beats the feeling of unwrapping some luxuriously soft socks to bundle your toes all winter. Your lucky giftee will receive a stylish new pair of socks or three every month, making them feel like it’s Christmas day over and over again! Sock club is sure to be a winner!
