Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog. So, today my best friend scared me a little bit because she uploaded a photo onto Facebook with her wrapped (yes, wrapped) Christmas presents all ready to go well over a month in advance! Is anyone else feeling totally unprepared and totally overwhelmed by the thought of Christmas? I know I am! Instead of doing a regular gift guide (those will be coming in the future during Blogmas), I thought that I would delve into a different type of gift that you can give your friend/boyfriend/girlfriend/son/brother/whoever! Subscription boxes! They’re so versatile and absolutely perfect for a gift.
So, here’s my list of the best subscription box gifts for Christmas!
FOR THE BEAUTY LOVER
If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you will know that one of my monthly (when I get my butt into gear!) posts is my Birchbox unboxing. Although I haven’t tried any other beauty boxes yet – that might be something that I will do in the future if anyone would be interested – I really stand by Birchbox. Even though I’ve been frustrated in the past with receiving too many hair products or something of the like, my overall experience has been extremely positive. They do a nice mixture of makeup, skincare and hair products and enable you to discover completely new products! If you want to see November’s box then that will be posted later this week! You can sign up here.
FOR THE BOOK LOVER
This post is in collaboration with Real Wedding and while I was looking through their great list of subscription box gifts, I discovered that there’s such a thing as a Coffee and Book Club subscription box! This is absolutely perfect for a bookworm – every month, a bag of ground coffee and a vintage paperback book arrives on your doorstep for you to sink your teeth into. Literally. I love reading even if I never seem to make too much time for it so this would be perfect for someone who loves discovering new-old books.
FOR THE DOG LOVER
Let’s be real. Who doesn’t love dogs? Don’t trust people who don’t love dogs! They are absolute angels and it’s so great to see companies such as Barkbox thriving and giving man’s best friend their own monthly surprise to look forward to. If you’re around dogs, you know just how much they love tearing into things so of course, they’re going to be in love with the fact they can actually open their own package! The best boys receiving post – what better present could you give?
FOR THE STATIONERY LOVER
Finally, one for all of you stationery nerds out there – I’m allowed to call you nerds because I’m one, too. We bloggers love stationery as a whole, it seems. This might be because it looks absolutely gorgeous in flatlays or it might be that we love to send little letters to our blogger friends but why not treat yourself – or another nerd – to a monthly service which means you’ll always be well stocked up on the best stationery products?
So, there you have it! I’ll be doing more gift guides in the future but subscription box gifts are becoming more of a lucrative business and a really cute idea for you to give a loved one so this seemed to be the best post to start off with! What subscription box do you guys have? Let me know in the comments!
