Friday Favorites: Five Subscription Boxes That Make Great Gifts

If you’ve been here for a while, you know how much I love subscription boxes. I think they make great Christmas gifts because they get surprises from you for several months. Here are some of the subscription boxes I love giving:

For the dog lover: 
I love gifting Barkbox to my dog lover friends. It’s full of fun toys and all-natural treats for their pups.
Cost: $39 for one month, $99 for three months, $189 for six months, and $319 for a year

For the makeup addict: 
Even though Birchbox and Ipsy are cheaper, I think Glossybox has better makeup. It offers more full-size products with lots of great brands.
Cost: $25 for one month, $150 for six months, and $250 for a year

For your favorite snacker: 
I loved when Chris and I used to get a MunchPak subscription. It features lots of interesting snacks from around the world, and the original size will send you at least 10 snacks each month.
Cost: $65.85 for three months, $125.70 for six months, and $239.40 for a year

For the travel bug: 
Try the World is fun because they pick a country every two months and send you 7-8 delicacies.
Cost: $39 for one box, $105 for three boxes (over six months), and $198 for six boxes (over a year)

For the person who loves a little bit of everything:

PopSugar is my absolute favorite subscription service. I love getting a mixture of fun things in the mail every month that I normally wouldn’t purchase for myself. Christopher loves the box as much as I do and loves seeing what I get every month.
Cost: $39.95 for one month, $109.85 for three months, and $214.70 for six months

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. All great boxes! I gave my brother Birchbox for men a few Christmases ago and he loved it.

  2. Bark Box is great to give as gifts! We had Dart send one to our friends' dogs last year, and they loved it!

  3. This is a great idea for those hard to buy people! I have never heard the Try the World one before- that sounds exciting!

  4. Subscription boxes are the best gifts! They really do keep on giving all year long!

  5. I would never think to give a subscription box! What a great idea. I have the Sephora Play box and love it.

  6. What a great idea!

  7. These are all super ideas & the gift that keeps on giving! :)

  8. Gary got me GlossyBox for 3 months last year and I loved it!! I'm currently getting Sephora Play and love that one too! xo, Biana

  9. That is such a great idea to give subscription boxes for gifts! When I lived in California, I set up a wine subscription for my friend who lived back in Texas. It was so fun!

  10. This is a really good idea!! I've never thought of giving a sub box as a gift but it's literally the gift that keeps giving!! I might have to get one of these for my mother in law!!

  11. Fun ideas, especially for those people on your list that you aren't sure what to get!

  12. I love the idea of gifting a subscription like this to someone for the holidays... literally the gift that keeps giving! lol

  13. Those all sound like so much fun. Unfortunately following "No money November" and now "Dead broke December" lol, we'll have to wait before we sign up for any box subscriptions. Post what you get in your bark box. I'd love to see if that one's worth investing in.

    1. Haha, I know how that feels! I try to get my subscription boxes on Cyber Monday deals. PopSugar is currently having their biggest sale of the year, and I am so sad I already bought a subscription!

  14. I've been eying bark box for awhile but have never made the leap because I've never been too impressed by monthly boxes like that. But I might just get into the hype!

  15. I have to wonder if this post was inspired by our conversation! ;)
