A gift that keeps on giving, subscription gifts are great for design and crafts lovers or even for those who are a little particular. I’ve scoured around to find the best subscription gifts or at least ones that I want anyway.
Surprise design gifts
This has to be the best idea ever! Not Another Bill are a super stylish design subscription service. Each month a beautifully packaged surprise present is posted to you, to suit your style and preferences. This is a great way to discover artists and designers plus they ship globally (free UK shipping). I’m thinking of signing up to send gifts to myself! If I don’t need the surprise present then it would come in handy for a gift, which also saves me from trawling the shops, so really it’s a win win.
Price : from £24
If you like freshly ground coffee but never sure what beans to get then PACT coffee will take of that for you, plus if you don’t have a grinder they can grind the beans to your requirements minutes before it’s sent to keep it as fresh as possible.
Gift : 4 bags of coffee £27.80 Visit Pact Coffee for more information.
I actually subscribe to Shaken Cocktails and I’ve got to say it’s very well thought out, designed and the cocktails taste amazing. This is great for people who love cocktails and would like to increase their cocktail making skills or knowledge.
The kits are designed to showcase a classic cocktail and its variations. They include premium ingredients (as recommended by that month’s drink designer) for the classic and a single variant. Each kit makes 4 servings (2 of each drink) and includes a bit extra.
Available as a one off gift (£24) or choice of 3, 6 or 12 month subscription. No commitment and can be cancelled anytime. The 3 month subscription is probably the best choice as a gift (£72) as each month is a different drink. If you order clicking through my link then you will get £5 off your order.
Not a present to be sniffed at. I don’t know what I would have done without my subscription to Elle decoration this year. I’ve either been super busy or super sick and just plain disorganised where I’d forget which day the magazines came out. A magazine subscription is a great gift…. hint hint.
Birchbox is a great beauty box where you receive luxe at least 5 samples and a few surprises personalised to your unique beauty profile. Along with this you get tips, tricks and tutorials. take a look at this unpacking youtube video to get more of idea of what you get. At only £10 per month plus postage I think it’s a bargain for any beauty lover.
Hope this gives you a few more ideas for a unique gift.
