Subscription Gifts That Keep On Giving

Most of us open gifts on Christmas Day and don’t expect to receive another present until our birthday rolls around months later. But what if you could give a gift that kept on giving? If you don’t want all of the fun to stop on Christmas morning consider purchasing a subscription gift box that will provide a new gift each month of the year. Here are a few fun subscription boxes worth considering:

1. Wine


Do you have a friend or family member who enjoys a glass of fine wine before, during or after dinner? Winc is the subscription gift box for wine lovers. Through a series of easy questions including “How do you like your coffee,” “Your thoughts on citrus,” and “Do you enjoy blackberries, blueberries and raspberries?,” Winc will create a custom wine profile, which provides insight into the type of wines an individual might enjoy. After establishing a profile Winc will ship out a box of handpicked selections each month that will please even the most discerning palette.

2. Spices


Do you have a foodie friend who gets inspired by unusual or unexpected ingredients? Does he or she like to search the grocery store aisles in search of something they’ve never tried before? If you know someone who loves to cook consider purchasing a gift subscription to the Raw Spice Bar. Every month your gift recipient will receive three freshly made flavor kits created with unique and new ingredients. What’s great about this kit is that it costs only $7 per month, so it’s both practical and inexpensive.

3. Candles


Perhaps you have a friend whose house is always illuminated by glowing candles. Do they seem to have candles lit no matter the weather or season? If so Flicker Box might be the perfect gift subscription. Flicker Box will provide beautiful, hand-poured, artisanal candles to your recipient’s address each month. Flicker Box stresses the quality of their products free of bells and whistles.

4. Sweets


Some like it salty and some like it sweet. Treatsie might be the perfect Christmas gift for that family member who just can’t resist the lure of sugary treats. Treatsie provides a box of artisan sweets right to your recipient’s door every month. Each box includes treats from the best small-batch sweets makers in the country. Gift givers can order a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription and if the recipient loves a particular treat he or she can order more from the Treatsie store.

5. Books


Someone in the family is bound to be a bookworm. What do you buy for that family member who always has his or her nose in a book? Well a subscription to a curated book subscription service of course. A Quarterlane subscription provides handpicked selections including new literary releases and early access to the most anticipated books of the season. The subscriptions are sent quarterly, rather than monthly. After all, you need a little time to read all of the selections before the next box of books shows up.

These days you can find gift subscriptions to suit a wide variety of hobbies and interests. If you want to give the gift that keeps on giving consider one of the subscriptions listed above.
