The holiday season is right around the corner. We always say plan ahead with holiday gifts because you’ll save time, energy and money in the long run. But, what if you need to give a gift to a family member, friend or even a client that has almost everything?
While on the hunt to finding the perfect gift for these type of people, I came to the conclusion that subscription boxes were the answer to my gift buying prayers. If you’re not familiar with subscription boxes, they’re kind of like your magazine subscription, but instead of a good read, you get a sampling of snacks, beauty products, kids crafting items and more.
Depending on the subscription box, you’ll either get a handpicked selection of goodies sent to your doorstep or with some, you can even customize according to your taste. The excitement of coming home to a mystery box filled with goodies can never get old. It sure made me smile, every single time.
In order to weed out the good from the bad and yes, not all subscription boxes are created equal, I asked various subscription box companies to send their current month’s box for review (all were complimentary). From snack boxes to beauty and even kid focused boxes, I have the 411 for you. No more stressing over holiday gifts this year!
Most of us enjoy snacking, whether it’s to pass time or just to veg in front of the TV. If you like to sample things at the market or even at Costco, this is right down your alley. With these snack subscription boxes, you get to try a little bit of everything. From potato chips to chocolate, you’re covered. Plus, they make the perfect little gift as I’m sure you’ve heard that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach (I can say it applies to women as well).
1. Healthy Surprise. Just like the name, you’ll get many healthy surprises. By far, this was the biggest subscription box that I received and included 11 different full-size snacks to try.
I got to enjoy everything from dehydrated tomatoes to strawberry macaroons. I loved most of the snacks, but there were some that I didn’t as well. The point was to try out different things.
Everything is healthy and some are even raw. The box only included natural, vegan, gluten-free and soy-free products. So if you’re trying to find a gift for someone who has allergies or vegan, this would be perfect for them. Price: Starts at $33, plus $6.99 shipping for Starter Box.
