We're Gifting These Subscription Services to Our Pickiest Friends
We’re always thinking of unique ways to make our friends and family feel special. Sometimes, it’s with a traditional gift bundled up in wrapping paper and topped off with a bow. Other times, it’s in the form of a gift card to one of their favorite stores. Here’s the thing, though — since our loved ones are always top of mind no matter the time of year, shouldn’t our gifts reflect that? A great gift is something that can be enjoyed year-round, after all!
This is why we love gifting the most important people in our lives subscription boxes. It’s like giving them a surprise every month (or season, pending how often they receive their goodies). After all, there’s nothing quite as heartwarming as giving our nearest and dearest something to smile about year-round.
Whether your loved ones adore reading, love sustainable style or just want a little something extra special to unwrap, we compiled the best subscriptions to gift even the most discerning of folks. Keep scrolling for our faves!
For anyone who can never find enough time to read: Audible
Whether we know or we are that one person that can seemingly never find the time to pause everything and just curl up with a good book, there’s a way to ensure we can always stay on top of our reading list. Audible, a subscription service offered by Amazon, allows Us to listen to audiobooks wherever we are. With over 425,000 titles available (many of which are narrated by actors or the authors themselves) we’d be hard-pressed to find a book that’s not available on the platform. It’s like Netflix for audiobooks, but better — we don’t have to wait several months until our favorite new releases are available to listen to.
See it: Scoop up an Audible subscription for a loved one via Amazon! The 30-day free trial membership includes 1 audiobook and 2 Audible Originals. After the trial, a membership costs $15 and can be canceled anytime. Please note, prices are accurate at the update date of publication, December 19, 2018, but are subject to change.
For anyone with their nose always buried in a new book — Kindle Unlimited
Conversely, for those friends or family members that are always looking for a new book to read, there’s always Kindle Unlimited. The service acts somewhat like a library and with over 1 million titles and audiobooks, there’s really no better way to satisfy the binge reader we all know and love. Don’t have a Kindle? No problem! It’s compatible with any device that has the Kindle app available to download.
See it: Check out the Kindle Unlimited subscription for that bookworm you love! After a 30-day free trial, a subscription costs $10 a month plus taxes and can be canceled whenever. Please note, prices are accurate at the update date of publication, December 19, 2018, but are subject to change.
For anyone who adores little luxuries: Robb Vices
If other subscription boxes are a little too basic for you, Robb Vices is the way to go. Each box, delivered either monthly or bi-monthly, brings a curated assortment of luxuries right to our loved one’s doorstep. From fine spirits, international food and rare finds, a Robb Vices subscription will satisfy even the most particular of tastes.
See it: Sign up for an annual subscription to Robb Vices for $100 a month, or for a bi-monthly subscription for $110. Trial subscriptions are also available for $130 for three months and $160 for a month-to-month basis.
For fans of sustainable style: Frank and Oak
Does your loved one not have the time or will to shop for a whole new wardrobe? Frank and Oak’s style plan covers all that! After answering a detailed quiz, the brand’s stylists curate a box specifically for their unique taste. The best part? Everything is ethically made, sustainably sourced and made to be paired with virtually everything.
See it: Check out the Frank and Oak Style Plan and score up to 20 percent off each item! Plans for both men and women available.
For fashionistas who love to stay on top of trends: Rent the Runway Unlimited
We love always having new items in our closet, but let’s face it: It can be an expensive habit to keep! Rent the Runway offers a subscription service where we (and our loved ones) can always have new goodies for only a fraction of what they would cost if we were to buy them individually. It’s easy — keep four styles in rotation, swap anytime and never get bored of what’s sitting in your closet. We don’t even have to pay for dry cleaning!
See it: Check out Rent the Runway Unlimited for a month trial for $99 with code “LETSPARTY” and for $159 each month thereafter.
