If you’re struggling with ideas for christmas presents this year, here are a few ideas that might help for the people in your life who have enough ‘stuff’ but you still do want to get them something. In fact, I think these would make brilliant birthday and wedding presents as well.
A bonus if you don’t like shopping at this time of year is that all these can be purchased online, although I would always advocate supporting your local independent retailers too.
Yes they sound very dull don’t they but there are some real corkers out there covering a whole host of interests. Here are some that caught my eye.
1.My Little Box is perfect for fashion, beauty or interior lovers. Each month you are sent a box that includes make up, a magazine, beautifully illustrated items and more. Prices start at £33 for a 3 month subscription. Take a look at some of the previous months boxes here
2. For those who can’t do anything before a cup of coffee in the morning, how about a coffee subscription with cafe direct. Each month you’re sent a bag of coffee direct to your front door. This works a little differently as when you buy a subscription you’re given a code that the receiver then has to go online to redeem. In doing so they get to choose if they receive beans or ground, espresso or filter which makes for a great personalised present. Prices start at £24 for 3 months
3. If you know someone who would prefer something a little stronger than why not try a spirit tasting box. This is a pricier option starting at £37.99 for 2 months.
4. If you have green fingered friends why not try allotinabox. These fun looking boxes contain seeds and other stuff that people need when wanting to grow stuff that I don’t really understand. An annual subscription is £59.99
5. My personal favourite is a stationary subscription service with Ink drops. Each month a box you’ll get a mixture of cards and other beautiful things to write letters with or just look at because you don’t want to spoil them. This one starts at £16 a month
