To help aid you on your gift-giving journey, I wanted to curate a list of 33 subscription boxes that I have either personally tried or that I would want to receive or give to someone else. I LOVE giving gifts but try to be really mindful of what we give and tend to stick to consumables, experiences, books and other clutter-free items (which is where the subscription boxes come in).
So, what are some of the things I love about them?
- They’re great for those living a clutter-free/minimalist lifestyle because they often consumables or usable items such as lotions, bath items, etc.
- You can choose boxes that are geared towards specific hobbies
- The companies of the subscription boxes often support and promote small businesses
- You get to discover and try items you may not have been exposed to
- It is fun getting packages in the mail
- Make great gifts for the hard to buy for people on your list (or anyone on your list!)
- The kid-friendly boxes contain great, hands-on activities that are fun for adults too
- And so much more!
If you’re looking for a unique gift that is sure to please and that falls in line with mindful and intentional living, I would highly recommend looking into a subscription box!
