One of my favorite things to gift is a subscription. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! I’ve gifted flower subscriptions, beauty subscriptions, cigar subscriptions, wine subscriptions, book subscriptions…the possibilities are endless and so is the fun.
Gifting someone something that arrives at their door unexpectedly ceases the opportunity to brighten someone’s day and it’s a special reminder that they are thought of and loved throughout the year. And the best part is subscriptions transcend relationships. These are just as awesome for your mom as they are for your boss.
I’ve rounded up some beautiful options that are either sustainable, natural, organic or centered around wellness. I personally would love to get any of these and I’ve gifted several of them myself. Secure subscriptions early to ensure your preferred start date. Check it out.
1. The Sill Potted Plant Subscription
Plants make us happier, healthier, more efficient and boost our creativity. They even clean the air we breathe. Choose the type of plant you want (low-light, pet-friendly, beginners). Choose your planter color. Every month, receive a new hand-potted plant in one of their earthenware planters. These are super cute! Shop here!
2. The Mighty Fix
From glass water bottles, to non-plastic food storage to nontoxic laundry solutions and clean skincare…Get one hand-picked healthy living item each month that will have your giftee living green in no time. PLUS! You can gift an entire year for just about $100! Read my review here or gift Mighty Fix here! Use code: TNKFIX to save.
3. Natural Wine Subscription
I really should have listed this one first because what’s better than getting wine delivered to your door every month? Actually there is one thing. Getting NATURAL wine delivered to your door every month! By choosing natural wine we avoid over 70 additives, chemical sprays, GMO yeast, HFCS, Mega Purple colorant, defoaming agents, ammonia, mold, preservatives and more. Plus it tastes dang delicious. Send as little as 3 bottles, one time or as much as 12 bottles monthly! Read my review here and get an additional bottle for just a penny here!
4. Beauty Heroes
Beauty Heroes is one of my favorite subscriptions to gift. This brand is at the forefront of trending and delivers the latest and greatest when it comes to clean beauty. Beauty Heroes works closely with the brands they feature so they have been known to deliver exclusive scents or announce new releases too. Which means subscribers get to be the first to try! Beauty Heroes promises a minimum of $90 of clean beauty delivered to your door monthly. Plus subscribers also get 15% off their robust online shop EVERYDAY. This is for the girl who values luxe beauty at it’s finest. Read my review or gift it here!
5. Sustainable Flowers
Bouqs partners with eco-friendly farms that minimize waste, recycle water, and use sustainable growing practices. They even offer fresh holiday wreaths which make an awesome holiday or hostess gift. Choose a subscription from three options: wildflower, classic or a roses subscription. Then choose the bouquet size and delivery frequency. Plus, you even have the option schedule deliveries in advanced to punctuate holidays, birthdays, special occasions, etc. Shop here!
6. Discover Books via Boxwalla
For the avid reader, there’s nothing better than gifting them a book they actually read and fall in love with – amirite!? But the trouble is actually picking out that book….Well, Boxwalla has done the work for you. Boxwalla focus on great writers from all over the world both past and present. All of the selected books are must-reads but not as wildly read as they deserve to be. Each book box will contain two books with a detailed insert. Delivered every two months.
I also love this subscription because you can toggle back and forth between their book, beauty and film box. So one delivery you get books, the next? Clean beauty! Shop here!
7. Wolf Ceramics Mug Club
Does anyone else have a mug obsession or is it just me? As part of the Mug Club, you’ll receive a new and different handmade, ceramic mug (or pair of mugs) once every season! And if you are anything like me, you are giddy over the thought of art, beauty and functionality all wrapped up into one stunning piece. This subscription is only offered once a year. Shop here!
8. The Detox Box
One of the most popular clean beauty subscriptions, The Detox Box delivers one brand every month with a $90 minimum value. We usually see between 3-5 full size products here. This is a newer subscription but it came out of the gates strong delivering big names like Josh Rosebrook, Agent Nateur, Fitglow, OSMIA and more. As low as $39.95 if you gift a year subscription however you can gift as little as one month too for $55. This one’s for the girl who wants to try it all. Gift the Detox Box here!
9. LaurelBox for gifts after losing a loved one
I came across LaurelBox when I was writing this post and was struck by the care and thought put into this subscription. For people experience grief during the holidays around miscarriage, the loss of a spouse, family member or child; this is a beautiful way to send love. Sustainable, responsible and thoughtful gifts sent on meaningful dates. More here.
Gift a Local CSA
I am still waiting to recommend a good organic meal subscription but nothing has checked ALL my boxes yet. They are either not organic enough, too small, too complicated, not sourced right etc. So in the mean time, I recommend checking out out EatWild to find a local farm near you that offers a CSA (community supported agriculture) box of organic and local veggies. You sign up for the season and every week you get a box of fresh veggies (and sometimes meat and eggs too). There is nothing better than receiving the gift of a nutritious bounty! Some CSAs even deliver to your door. More here!
Fun Subscriptions for Kids:
I love kids subscriptions because not only do kids love getting mail but it creates an activity for parents and kids to do together – everything included. There is no hassle of running to the store for tape or glue. PLUS these specific subscriptions get kids excited about learning, they foster ownership and spark potential passions.
KIWI CO: Quinn has been begging to re-subscribe to this project-based kids subscription FOR EVER. He’s made rainbows, drums…pinball machines… Subscriptions available for ages zero to 104.
Raddish: I swear the boys ask me if they can crack an egg on the daily – ha ha! This is a kids cooking subscription that delivers tools and recipes every month. Plus they cater to accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, egg-free, dairy free.
Literati: A book subscription for ages 0-12. Get 5 books a month. Keep what you like, send back what you don’t. Because reading is EVERYTHING.
Any subscriptions you are loving as gifts for the holidays?
