I love subscription gifts – there’s something out there for everyone and you get to enjoy the excitement of receiving a gift every month. There are subscription gifts to suit a wide range of budgets and tastes – you can find something for all the family.
1. For Cheese Lovers
If you like cheese, and you like toasties, then imagine being sent all the ingredients you need to make your own cheese toastie every week, fortnight or month. And not just any old cheese toastie, these are gourmet ones in a range of flavours; you can choose from sweet (including ingredients such as chocolate and marshmallows) or savoury.
We were kindly sent a sample of a Pepperoni Pizza toastie to try out, which included the bread, butter, cheese, tomato sauce and pepperoni slices. Everything you need to make a delicious toastie.
Ever since my husband saw Cheese Posties on Taskmaster he has wanted to give them a try – so when I was away for the weekend, he decided to make this for his tea. He made sure to take some photos and let me know what he thought. I got a text saying “Just made my cheese postie! My God, it was good.” – needless to say he’s a fan! You can subscribe to Cheese Posties here from £5.12 per toastie.*
2. For Budding Scientists
The Curiosity Box is filled with fun science experiments for kids aged 6-11. You can choose from Nano, from £4.95 per month which includes one hour’s worth of fun activities, or the Jumbo box which keeps kids busy for 4-5 hours. Each box is themed – upcoming themes include magnets, space and climate. You can get your first Nano box free – just pay postage.
3. For Harry Potter Fans
Okay so I have a six year old who would go crazy for this subscription gift from Geek Gear -she’s a huge Harry Potter fan. Each World of Wizardry box contains a t-shirt and a selection of Potter themed goodies, tailored to your favourite of the four Hogwarts’ houses. Previous boxes have included pin badges, soft toys, mugs, art work, props, figures and jewellery. You can also order one off boxes which make the perfect gift in themselves.
From little wannabe witches or wizards, to grown up muggles, any potter fan would love this. Sign up here from £19.99 per month (and use the code NEWSUB10 for 10% off your first box).
4. For Tweens and Teens
Baebox’s mission is to “make a positive difference in the lives of girls at a vulnerable age, helping them grow up, but not too fast.” Each month your tween (aged 8-12) or teen (aged 13-15) will receive at least 4 age appropriate products, such as stationary, fashion accessories, games, confectionary, beauty and cosmetic products, plus positive and empowering messages printed on cards. Visit the website to find out more and subscribe from £16 per month.
5. For Little Bookworms
The Happy Book Club will put together the perfect package of books for your little one each month from £15.99. Every package has a different theme and contains 2 books and a selection of activities. You can pick from three age groups – babies, 2-4 and 5-7 year olds, and can order a one off parcel or a subscription for up to 12 months.
6. And Bigger Bookworms
Book and coffee lovers will enjoy having some quiet time with a subscription from Bookishly – £27 for three months. Each month you will receive a vintage paperback and enough ground coffee to make 4 or 5 cups – especially perfect for snuggling up on cold winter nights.
7. For Mums and Grandmas
What’s nicer than receiving fresh flowers straight to your home? Bloom and Wild will send flowers on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis from just £15 per bouquet, including free delivery. Better still, you don’t need to be home for the delivery, as they fit through the letter box.
If you visit Bloom and Wild using this link and go on to make a purchase, not only will I earn some credit, but you will receive £10 off your first order! You could even use the discount to treat yourself to some beautiful blooms – after all, you deserve a treat after all that Christmas shopping.**
8. For Gin Connoisseurs
Flavourly will deliver 3 x 200ml bottles of carefully selected craft gin, plus a mixer and snack straight to your door every month for £34.99. So if you’re a gin lover, that’s your weekend sorted! They also have a craft beer club if gin isn’t your thing. Check out the Flavourly website for more info.
9. For Crafty Makers
Magazines may seem a little old school as far as subscriptions go, but there are some great ones out there to suit every hobby and interest. For crafty fans, the Mollie Makes magazine subscription features a range of projects plus a free gift with every issue. It’s just £5 for the first 3 issues – that’s less than £1.70 per magazine – and £29.49 for every 6 issues after that. You can order online here.
10. For lovers of all things cosy
Flamingo Candles deliver 8 scented wax melts to your door every month, for just £10. The first subscription package comes with a free wax burner, and you can have a sweet smelling home all year round.
