As you might imagine, at Love with Food we’re pretty into the idea of giving gifts that last the whole year long. And though we think we’re the hand’s down best snack subscription box out there (c’mon, who else supports small local businesses AND gives a meal to a hungry child with every box purchased?), we’ve come across other boxes that we know will be perfect for at least one person on your gift list. In the spirit of sharing, here are our 5 top subscription boxes for 2015. (Besides us!:))
For Fido’s Best Friend: BarkBox is perfect for that brother in law of yours that prefers a day on the hiking trail with his four legged friend to a date with your office mate. Give it up for his canine companion and he’ll love you forever. A 12 month subscription costs $19 and yields all-natural dog treats, toys and puppy products you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Let them know the size of the dog(s) you’re, uh, spoiling and everything will be custom sized just right. Add to that a portion of proceeds rescue furry friends in need–not bad!
For Your Fashionista Sista’: The ideal gift for that special someone who tosses her sweater to the curb after a one-time wear, Le Tote replenishes wardrobes one month at a time. She’ll set the sizing and they’ll take care of the rest. It’s a rental plan or a personal shopper. With each new clothing item sent (on a monthly basis) she can decide which are keepers and send the others packing.
For Your Hot Mama: Everyone’s looking for the fountain of youth and when it comes to keeping those greys away, Madison Reed’s on to something. Whether she wants a one time box to go red on the head or a regular delivery every 3-10 weeks so those roots don’t reappear, this box is the bomb.
For Those Kreative Kids: This just in: If you get your child an itouch, they will lock into their screen and never come back. If you prefer to engage, there’s Kiwi Crate. Perfect for kids ages 3-8, these crafty boxes include art and science projects that you can do together at home. More colorful and exciting than a stack of worksheets, this is the kind of homework (and learning) everyone can get into.
For that Timeless Chef: Do you know anyone who has time to cook from scratch anymore? We don’t believe you. Hello Fresh is for everyone else. A creatively curated culinary box filled with everything you need to make recipes from scratch, but the planning and shopping is done for you. That leaves plenty of time for chopping, dicing, mixing and seasoning just right. Ideal for anyone who likes to eat like Top Chef but works, carpools and runs errands 24/7, you may also want to get an extra subscription for your own family!
For Your Beautiful BFF: All right, she’s got it and all that, but you know she loves to pamper that perfection. A subscription to IPSY’s just the thing. A fully customized beauty box, for everyone from the girliest of girls to busy professionals who simply don’t have the time to stop at Sephora for a skin evaluation or the newest shade of nail polish. The only thing missing is a personal stylist. Oops, yeah. They have that too.
