Are you getting ready to Christmas shop this year, and are struggling on what to get for your spouse, or parents? Maybe you want to pamper one of your friends who just had a child, and need reminding to take care of herself. Luckily for you, Here are 11 of the Best Subscription Boxes this Christmas.
With subscription boxes, you have the choice to buy a one month option, or often you can buy them in three, six, or twelve month packages. Each one will be delivered as they ship. It’s convenient, and always fun to get a surprise box full of goodies. They’re always filled with things you never knew you always wanted. My favorites for myself include, Love with Food, Ipsy, and Keto Box. If you haven’t heard of these yet, that’s okay! They’re on the list, and I can’t wait to share them with you! You get to pick and choose how it fits into your budget. If you choose several month packages, they will often bill you once, so you don’t have to find out how to slip it in your budget until June.
I’ve adopted the keto way of life over the past year in an effort to help control my celiac, and heal my body and it has totally worked. I eat a largely whole foods diet with tons of fat, and very few carbs. But every now and then, I just need something that tastes life my old life. Enter: The Keto Box. Every month get a selection of keto/paleo approved treats ranging from dressing, chips, exogenous ketones and more. Perfect for that friend who “doesn’t eat anything anymore!”
First up, we have Amazon Prime. We all know Amazon. We love it and we use it. And who doesn’t love free 2-day shipping? Hundreds of movies, thousands of songs, and countless books. If your person you want to shop for loves EVERYTHING, Amazon prime is probably the best gift you can get. Because it makes EVERYTHING on Amazon so much more accessible! Awesome for kids with their Kindles!
Ipsy is the original makeup subscription box, and by far the most inexpensive on the list. If you want to do something, but you can’t do much, this is the subscription box for you. For $10 a month, your person will get a cute makeup bag, and several fun things like moisturizers, blushes, eyeshadows, primers, and always at least one full sized item. The total value of these bags are often $30 or more.
I don’t know about you, but I can think about about 6 moms who could use a break, or who are always looking for a thing that’s safer than the other thing. Or maybe they just need a break. Ecocentric Mom is awesome with the different subscription boxes they have. They’re specifically curated for pregnancy, mom and baby, and just being a woman who is also a mother. Tell me one mom who couldn’t use a little bit of a surprise gift box?
This is the only food option on here. I am very sensitive about food. I don’t eat carbs anymore, but if I did, I’d want them to be carefully curated by the people behind Love with Food. First of all, for every box bought, a donation is made to a food bank. But more importantly, their Gluten Free Box is full of only Certified Gluten Free items. The ones that pass an actual test. For someone who struggles with severe gluten intolerance, knowing that my food isn’t going to make me sick is the most powerful thing for me. And knowing that you would choose to show me Love with Food would make me feel very grateful, indeed. (They also have an organic option.)

And here we are, option number 11. If somehow your person or persons did not fall into any of the above categories, then this is your mark. (Unless they are’ underage. Lets keep it legal around here.) Wine never goes out of style. It always goes great with a meal, with company, a good book, or a long bubble bath. With Winc, you are saving lots of dollars by purchasing four wines at a time. They have all sorts of plans and you should explore them. And then purchase it immediately. For yourself, or for someone else, is irrelevant. Also make sure you live in a state that allows for the personal shipment of alcohol. Not all of them do. (Alaska doesn’t, I’m sad to report.)
If you have a person in your life who keeps wanting to try new things or build up their skills in cooking, photography, business, or something else, consider giving them the gift of education. Creative Live offers classes that are taught by the professionals. They’re the top experts in their field and these classes are so thorough, you’ll wonder how you got it for such a great price. You can buy as a gift card, or just pick the class for them. The best part about Creative Live is they are always having great sales happening (especially around the holidays – heyoo!) so keep checking back to see if the classes you’re interested in are up for grabs.
Woven Pear is probably my favorite place on this whole list, which is telling. Here’s their deal: Socks. Yes, socks. Not just socks. The cutest, most comfortable and adorably cute socks you’ve ever seen. The socks Dobby dreams of, even as he holds the one that set him free. These are those socks. And you can get them every month for the rest of your life. I mean, you can set your person up for 3 months of the most extraordinary socks. If you have a person who has a particular habit of mismatching their socks, this is for them. (Which is to say, when they were coming up with their ideal client, they were thinking of me.)
Decidedly not a subscription box to be sure, but I wanted to make sure that my favorite mattress company got a shoutout somewhere. These beds are made for comfort, and they are so affordable. If you’re looking for a mattress, Amore Beds will give you 100 nights to try it out – if you don’t like, you can get your money back. Is there anything better than the gift of a good night’s sleep?
Give the gift of exploration with Viator. Viator is the leading tour aggregate online and the offer the best prices you’ll find anywhere. I personally used this service during my recent holiday and it was fantastic. Even when I needed to contact customer service – I was very pleased.
You don’t have to choose exotic locations – go explore your own backyard. They have tours listed for basically everywhere in the world. But if you know your person is preparing for an epic trip, surprise them with a guided sight seeing tour, paddle boat excursion, or zipline trip.
