Top Ten Gift Subsciption Ideas!

Time to start my Christmas Gift Planning! I am going to make as many gifts as possible by hand, but also use some subscription services.  Here is a list of my Top Ten Subscriptions to use for Gifts. No, I am not sponsored by any of these companies, but I sure wish I was!

For Kids

1. Kiwi Crate. This is the best gift for kids aged 3-7. Each month, a box arrives in the mail with 2-3 activities/crafts for kids. My son Cooper loves his! Last month was a kit to make fruits and veggies, decorate an apron, and play money. He is still enjoying pretending he runs a grocery store and setting up his items for sale. Cost - $19.99 for one kiwi crate with free shipping.

2. Babba Box. Same concept as Kiwi Crate, only a little bigger box with one or two more activities. For ages 3-6. I haven't tried this one out, but want to soon. Cost - $29.99 monthly subscription.

3. Green Kid Crafts. This works like Babba and Kiwi Crate, with 3 or more crafts for kids ages 3-8, but with an eco friendly twist. All the supplies are environmentally friendly! I need to try this one out as well.

For Food Lovers

4. Harry and David - Fruit of the Month Club. I've done these a few times. There are tons of different option, from 3 month subscriptions to yearly, and all kinds of different fruit combos to pick from. from $69.99 on up for the 3 month options I looked through. The fruit is always excellent, and the cookies, chocolates and other goodies are always amazing.

5. Vosges Chocolate of the Month Club. This is not a cheap subscription, but each month, 9 gourmet chocolate truffles come in the mail for 3 months for $139.00. This is for serious chocolate lovers.

For Ladies and Mothers

6. Umba Box  - Beautiful handmade surprises every month (2-3) products each month. For a 3 month subscription, it is $75.

7. Indie Gift Box.   Items from independent artists and small businesses. There are four different themed boxes you can subscribe to: Dainty Box, Color Box, Beauty Box, and Boho Box. Costs $15 - $20 a month.

8. Stork Sack  - Each and every month, Stork Stack delivers "Stacks" of 5 hand-selected products to parents, so they can discover the best brands for their family. Stork Stack takes its commitment to the parenting community very seriously. With every subscription purchased of three months or more, Stork Stack donates Stacks to families in need through the Stork Stack Gives Back. 3 month membership costs $84.

For Men

9. Microbrew Beer of the Month Club - 12 Bottles of microbrewery beer for $22.95 a month.
Members get twelve, 12-oz. beers from two different lightly distributed U.S. Microbreweries. Each shipment includes four different beer styles, three bottles of each style and our monthly newsletter detailing tasting notes, beer specifications, brewery profiles, suggested food pairings, and more.

10. Dean and Deluca Artisanal Coffee of the Month Club - Fresh whole bean coffee shipped to your door for $60 for a 3 month subscription (3 one pound bags).

  1. What fun gift ideas. I've given magazine subscriptions in the past, but nothing like this.


We would love to hear from you!
