Christmas Gift Guide – Subscription Boxes

It’s December! It’s officially time to start shopping for family and friends’ presents. But let’s be honest, it’s a difficult task when everything you see in department stores are much of the same.

After all, nobody wants another body lotion or a box of quality street chocolates, right? What about being a bit more creative this year?

Why not treating the family with something that you don’t even need to queue to buy it, wrap up or delivery in person? Thinking this way, subscription boxes sounds like Christmas carols to me.

It’s also a perfect present if you want to extend the festivities’ treating as well. After all, it will last at least 3 months, if you join a minimum- subscription period. Besides, there is nothing more creative than a box with goodies that you love.

I have been testing some subscription services in the past that are a good deal. Here’s my list for my Christmas Gift Guide:

Papergang

Are you a stationery aficionado? This box is made especially for you. Every month, Oh Deer puts together the best papery goods in a box of various products such as notebooks, greeting cards, stationery accessories and art prints.

As the boxes are never repeated, it’s guaranteed to have the most creative boxes designed by different artists at your doorstep every month. You can subscribe Papergang monthly for £10.95.

Beer 52

Before you say something, no this is not an exclusive box for man. It’s certain that your husband, boyfriend, brother would be happy to receive a selection of outstanding craft beers for Christmas.

But the truth is that girls are into artisanal beer as much as the boys. Beer 52 covers a range of different styles. Besides, it’s also sent a Ferment magazine issue and a different snack in every monthly box. The subscription costs £24 for 8 beers or £29 for 10 beers on a monthly plan.

Awebox

I’m totally in love the concept of Awebox simply because it is a customised box. Yes, you can build your won box choosing from chocolate, sweets treat, gin, vodka, beer, candles, pet treats among other products.

The box contains products from both small and big brands. It will be impossible not to make someone happy with this subscription box. And you certainly will be accurate in your Christmas present. You can choose different subscriptions plans starting with £20 for a monthly subscription with 8 products on it.
