If you’re still scrambling for a last-minute Christmas gift, let me help you out! One of my favorite gifts to get and to give is a subscription service. I love to do this for my girls who get way too many gifts at once and I really love to receive them as well. It’s fun to get a gift that you can enjoy throughout the year and there are so many options out there from companies that offer subscription programs. Growing up my mom would always do this with a Southern Living magazine subscription. Magazines are always a great idea but today I’m rounding up 15 other subscription gift boxes that would make the perfect last-minute gift idea.
How to Gift A Subscription
My favorite way to gift a subscription is to print out what the subscription is and include it with a little trinket in a box. For a beauty subscription, get the recipient a few small samples of beauty items. If you’re giving a cooking subscription, include a hand towel or some wooden spoons. A cute bud vase is a great idea for a floral subscription. If you do not have time or cannot think of something extra to include, I promise the gift of a subscription is wonderful in and of itself!
Pro tip: don’t put the recipient’s email when you order or they could get an alert that you have purchased it for them.
My Top Recommendations
Grace Rose Farms // These are the most beautiful roses from a farm in Santa Ynez, CA. They arrive beautifully wrapped and are the most fragrant roses you will ever smell! The majority of roses in the USA coming from overseas and are grown indoors, and you honestly won’t believe the difference in farm-grown roses. The classic bouquet features a wide variety of roses that range from creams, soft pinks, to corals, russets, and lavenders including varieties like Francis Meilland, Lady Gardener, Evelyn, Sharifa Asma, Koko Loko, Distant Drums, Love Song, Carding Mill, Hot Cocoa, and Princess Charlene of Monaco. I love having these handmade bouquets in my home.
Equilibria // This is a great gift for anyone who likes taking CBD, is interested in it or could use help relaxing and de-stressing, aka everyone in the year 2020. This premium CBD is fully traceable from a 1,100 acre partner farm in Colorado. There are no fillers, no middle-men and you get consistent quality batch after batch. The specifically-formulated hemp oil features 9 cannabinoids & 21 terpenes that work together to give you powerful therapeutic results. I personally love the relief cream and the soft gels. You can use CRISTINCOOPER for 15% off!

Best Subscription Boxes for Kids

Pipsticks // A sticker subscription?! My girls would freak!! The Pipsticks Kids Club is perfect for budding sticker lovers ages 3+. Each sticker pack is totally child-friendly (so kiddos can use them independently!), with stickers that are just right for little fingers, and themes designed to inspire creativity. The Kids sticker pack comes with a collectible GIANT puffy sticker (it’s HUGE), scratch n’ sniff Pipstickers, and interactive sticker sheets (DIY robots, fish, snow globes!) that will spark imaginations. These stickers are perfect for rewards, collecting, adding to a sticker book, or using in arts and crafts!
