Subscription Boxes that are Great to Give as Gifts

If you are struggling to find a gift for a friend or family member, subscription boxes are the hottest thing available. Subscription boxes offer the ability to gift someone throughout the year, and the variety is great. You can find a subscription box that meets the interests of everyone you have.

Dog Owners

If you have a friend or family member that owns a dog, you could always purchase treats and toys. However, with the Barkbox, you can give them a six-month subscription for just over $100. Every box has treats, toys, and essentials that any dog owner may need. For the most part, the treats are all natural and made in the United States. You can customize the box based on the size of dog, so you will not need to worry about the toys that are included.

Creative People

For friends and family members who are extremely creative, getting a Wonderful Objects subscription box is a great gift. They offer a box four times a year and they are full of hand-picked trinkets to help foster the creative side of someone. The design is to bring the receiver creative ideas to make stories through writing or drawing.

Beauty Boxes

Birchbox and Julep are two subscription boxes that offer beauty products in sample sizes. Birchbox offers a subscription service for both men and women, so you can completely customize the gift to the recipient. With both the men’s and women’s box, recipients will receive a lifestyle product in addition to the grooming supplies. This is ideal for people who may have sensitive skin and be concerned about trying different full-size products due to reactions. Birchbox often includes a discount for the product so it is easier to purchase afterwards. Julep, on the other hand, also offers nail polish in addition to the beauty products. The nail polish is extremely high-quality, as well as being paraben and sulfate free.

New Parents

For new parents, you will want to look at Kidpik and/or Honest Company. Kidpik offers age-appropriate personalized fashion box full of cute clothes for your daughter. With the Honest Company subscription box, parents will also receive home products that are safe to use around children. You can also look at the diaper and wipes subscription box that will send the new parent enough diapers and wipes to last a month.

New Couples

Plated and Blue Apron are great subscription boxes for the newlywed or young couple. Plated is a weekly subscription that offers complete meals that can be custom ordered and sent. You will know the exact ingredients, as well as all of the nutritional information. This will help ensure a date night at least once a week. However, if the couple likes to cook, then Blue Apron will send ingredients and a recipe to try different restaurant-quality dishes.

Do you have a friend who is hard to shop for because you are not sure what they like? With the Sample Society subscription box, the recipient will get about $30-worth of sample products. You have the ability to shop month to month, but you will receive discounts with a bulk purchase, making gifting ideal. This is the best option if you are not sure what category they fit into.

  1. Subscription boxes are the new thing these days. I was thinking about starting one for the magazine but it's too much work

  2. Poochperks is another good one for dogs. For food I love HelloFresh. I just discovered Stitch Fix for fashion. That one is gonna break me.

    1. I never heard of Poochperks. I just read your Stitch Fix post, and they look like they have my kind of clothing I wear. Comfortable, yet stylish.
