When it comes to gift giving at Christmas time, things can sometimes get quite predictable. In my house it’s beauty products for the girls and socks, mugs and wine gums for the males. After looking for a unique and interesting subscription box for my mum this Christmas, I realised how many amazing and unusual subscription boxes there are out there.
There really is something for everyone.
I don’t want to do normal gift guides this year. That’s why when I say the vast amount of subscription boxes there was available, I knew that these would make some pretty extraordinary gifts for loved ones. Here’s some of my favourites….
For the chocoholics…
Like the thought of getting chocolate delivered to your door every month? Yeah, me too. This one is every chocolate lovers dream.
Each month you will receive a selection of chocolates through your letterbox made up of different cocoas and variations. The boxes are such good value for money as they are stuffed to the brim with exciting and delicious chocolates to try.
From £19.99 a month, it’s up to you how many months you want to gift this subscription box.
The Tipple Box is a monthly craft cocktail subscription box which delivers a variety of premium craft spirits and ingredients straight to your door. The box includes everything you need to make a delicious cocktail from your own kitchen, expect the ice. That would just make things messy.
It also includes easy to follow recipes to make that perfect cocktail. These boxes are available from £24.95 and contains some delicious drinks!
For the geek…
A mystery box full of TV, film and other memorabilia? Where do I sign up. This box plays host to a range of items such as t-shirts, mugs and other novelty gifts all centered around your favourite franchises, cult movies, retro games and popular culture. It’s an ideal monthly treat for a loved one and it would make a perfect gift this Christmas for those geeks in your life.
For the book lovers…
The Willoughby Book Club is a book subscription service for every age range and different tastes. There are book parcels aimed at toddlers, gardeners and even something for the couples. There are also standard contemporary and young adult subscription boxes to get your mitts into! This is a gift every book lover would love.
For the stationery addicts…
The Paper Gang
The Paper Gang is a beautiful subscription box full of unique and lovely stationery. With a theme each month you will receive notebooks, prints, cards and paper items for you to enjoy! These boxes look serious lust-worthy and I couldn’t recommend them enough as a gift for your stationery mad sibling or blogger friend.
The Vegan Kind
For this handy subscription box you can choose either a lifestyle box or a beauty box. The lifestyle box is full of vegan treats for you or your loved one to enjoy from sweets to drinks. The beauty box contains, you guessed it, beauty from some great vegan brands such as Spectrum or Weleda. There’s no doubt about it with this one, you’ll discover some hidden gem brands that you can’t help but fall in love with.
For your pawsome pals…

For the tea bellies…
Is there a concept anymore wonderful? Tea delivered to your door once a month, I think not.
This box comes at the affordable price of £7.00 a month. For this you’ll receive three delicious blends of tea each month and first try of limited edition season collections before they get released! The boxes are tailored around you preferences, so this is a lovely little treat for someone to receive each month.
I couldn’t do an entire subscription gift post without adding a box aimed at the gentlemen in your life.
