I love a gift that keeps on giving. You know the ones you use over and over again. Whether it’s a beloved necklace or a scarf you wear time and time again, I love a gift that really hits the mark. So when it comes to gifts that give past their opening date, subscription boxes are perfect! No matter when you give it, you’re sure to still be showing the love a few months down the line. Plus, it’s an awesome way to try new things or test out a new service. Today I’ve rounded up a few of the ones I think will be sure to win you Christmas gift points including some I’m hoping to try myself this year.
Ever since I cancelled my Birchbox subscription, I’ve been keeping my eye out for a new one to try. Petit Vour has been at the top of my list. If you’re looking to try cruelty free, non-toxic, plant based products, look no further. Each box includes 4 products with a total value between $45-60. Like most beauty subscription boxes, you’ll need to fill out a beauty profile. But they ask questions that include even the smallest details such as lip color preference.
If you’re looking to gift this box, there are a few subscription options available. You can give 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions. They ship worldwide, however, the price varies depending on location. US customers get the best deal at $18 a box. Canadians can expect to pay a bit more at $23 a month and worldwide boxes cost $25.
I’ve managed to try a few different meditation apps over the years. But I always come back to Breethe (previously known as OMG I Can Meditate). Personally, I enjoy the background music and soothing voice of the female meditation leader. And while this isn’t necessarily a subscription box, it is a month subscription. There are a couple of options available: monthly, yearly and lifetime.
I think one of the original blog posts on Savee & Savory was about this app. And my love for it has only grown over time. If you have a friend looking to up their workout game or wanting to get motivated in the new year, this is the perfect present. I prefer the yoga classes over the other ones. Nevertheless, it’s one of my most used ways to workout and I go back to it time and time again.
In the last year, one of the biggest changes we’ve made in our household is switching to pasture raised meat. It seems like something so small but the taste difference is significant. We opt for delivery every few months based on how much we are eating. You can easily switch the delivery dates around or pause for a few months if needed. Everything from bacon to chicken to grass fed beef is available.
As far as gifts go, this is a pricier one. But there are gift certificate options depending on your budget. Unfortunately, you can’t get them on the website. But a quick phone call gets you one step closer to nailing Christmas!
When it comes to trying new wines, sometimes it can be a bit risky. And no one likes to spend money on a bottle of wine they won’t drink. Vinebox is the perfect way to test out new wines without potentially wasting a bottle. Vinebox subscription boxes can get pricey but there are a few options available. You can choose either one box, two, or four. So whether you’re wanting to give the gift as a one time thing or something they can enjoy over the next year, there’s an option available. This is definitely on the top of my list of monthly subscriptions to try in 2019.
If you haven’t heard of Nocking Point Wine Club, well I wouldn’t be too surprised. But if you’re an Arrow fan, you’re probably familiar. Nocking Point was co-founded by Stephen Amell and has been heavily endorsed by other Arrow cast members. The subscription is available both monthly and quarterly but doesn’t ship to all US states. However, their monthly coffee subscription does.
Each of their wine subscription boxes features at least two bottles. And unlike other boxes, Nocking Point only ships their in house wines. There are the occasional celebrity endorsed bottles with recent ones featuring Emily Bett Rickard and Colton Haynes. And starting in 2019, there will be a Pure/Evil duo courtesy of Tom Welling & Michael Rosenbaum. If you’re looking to gift something a bit different than your average wine club, NP is definitely one to consider.
2018 has felt like the year of the at home meal delivery services. I’ve seen more ads and paid videos for HelloFresh than I can keep count. But at the end of the day, my favorite meal subscription has been Sun Basket. And it’s a gift I’ve already opted to give this holiday season.
If you’re looking for healthy meal inspiration, an activity to do with your partner or child, or maybe you just want to lighten the meal planning load, I’d highly recommend Sun Basket. They offer meal plans from paleo to vegan to gluten free. Their produce is organic and their meat is sustainably sourced. Honestly, I can’t say enough great things about this service. Who says you can’t buy a Christmas present for yourself?
I’m a massive fan of supporting companies that support people. So when I found Causebox, I was immediately intrigued. Causebox is a quarterly subscription box aiming to support brands that give back while also doing it themselves. From wellness products that are sustainably made to fair trade jewelry, Causebox is making the effort to give more than just products with their box. They make the effort to help the people behind their curation of products. Plus, they also partner with charities to help them raise funds and awareness for their cause.
As far as gifts go, I think this one would be an amazing one to receive. Instead of just getting another monthly round up of products, you’ll be getting ones that give back. It’s definitely a subscription box on my Christmas wishlist.
How is this thing and I don’t have it? The Bookworm Box is a monthly subscription for one romance novel & 4-6 other goodies. However, all proceeds from the box are given to charity. There are a few box options available: YA novel, 1 romance novel or 2 romance novels. But I’m all for supporting one of my favorite habits while still giving back. Win win!
As a dog mom with a pet who has a tendency to destroy toys like no other, I’ve become a massive fan of BarkBox over the years. They offer a few different bundles for their subscription boxes so this is a more budget flexible gift. Each month your pup will get a box of goodies sent to your door based on the profile you fill out for them. If you’re like me and have a larger dog, this is an amazing gift to give & receive. I’ve found some of Bear’s favorite toys and the only ones that have really lasted through BarkBox. Plus, they gives back to animal rescues and shelters.
When I started looking into subscription boxes for this post, I was surprised and pleased to discover this one. Just when you thought you’d heard of all the beauty boxes, you find a new choice! Benevolent Beauty Box is a monthly subscription but only sends out cruelty free items. They offer both a VIP & mini box. What’s even better? Their subscription boxes feature full sized products. And they donate to organization that fight animal testing and cruelty. Sign me up!
