Happy Sunday wonderful humans! Tell me honestly, are you done your Christmas shopping? I am always so jealous of those people who have their shopping done before December even starts. I am definitely a last-minute Christmas shopping kinda woman. For those of you who also still have people on their ‘to buy for’ list; I wanted to share with you my go-to Christmas gift: a subscription box!
More specifically; a subscription box tailored to the interests of the gift recipient. Let’s talk subscription box gift ideas:

The reason subscription boxes are my go-to Christmas gift idea is that there are so many options now for boxes, that you can really find something to suit every personality you are buying for. More on this in a moment! The second reason, is that it can be really fun to give a gift that keeps on giving.
One subscription box is a great Christmas gift on it’s own, but I love getting a two or three month subscription so that the gift recipient gets a present again in January and February. We all know that the winter months following Christmas can get kind of depressing, so having a gift from you to someone you love arrive in the mail during this time is such a great way to spread some joy.
My go to source for subscription boxes is Cratejoy. What I love about this site is that it has hundreds of subscription boxes all in once place, you if you are on the hunt for boxes for different gift recipients you can find them all here. Having spent a ton of time shopping on Cratejoy, I’ve found some subscription box gift ideas that are really cool.
