These Are The Best Subscriptions to Gift and Get This Holiday Season
Everyone loves receiving gifts they can use again and again. Why not take that sentiment literally and gift a subscription this year? Whether you just purchase the first box or you go all-out and get them six months' worth of gifts, they're sure to appreciate the gesture. These days, there truly is a box for *everyone* on your list, whether they're a coffee lover, a tea sipper, a pet parent, or a beauty addict. Here are our favorite boxes from across categories for gifting this season.
We'd be remiss not to start this list off with FabFitFun, one of the most beloved subscription boxes out there. Each season, you'll get lifestyle items, full-size skincare and cosmetics, fashion accessories, and workout tools — these boxes are a $300 value for a fraction of the price.
Okay, so it's not a *box*, but for just $8 per month, you can enjoy access to more than 170 different classes on photography, baking, career, cooking, DIYing, and art.
Subscription services are certainly fun, but if not done right, they can be wasteful. Alltrue helps you enjoy a subscription service in good conscience by sending products that are intentional, sustainable, ethically sourced, and altogether stunning.
Looking to spice up for wardrobe, or stock up on some investment pieces? Turn to the professionals at Nordstrom to help you out. Every time you get a new trunk (you get to set the schedule,) you'll have an opportunity to put in requests for what kinds of items you're looking for and what you want to add to your closet. Just send back what you don't want to keep.
For all the wine lovers out there, it doesn't get much better than Winc. Take a simple quiz to determine your likes, dislikes, and preferences in regard to wine, and enjoy vino delivered straight to your door. Treat your loved one to a gift card that will cover a month, two months, or three months of blissfully delicious wine.
Ipsy is another beauty-focused subscription box you (or your gift recipient) will love. Once you sign up for ipsy, you'll get five beauty products delivered right to your door each month — starting at just $13. It's incredibly hard to beat a price like that.
Want to do good for animals while gifting (or sipping) some coffee? Grounds & Hounds is a coffee roaster with a purpose. Not only does the organization donate a portion of the profits from every sale to animal rescue organizations, their coffee is AMAZINGLY rich and delicious. Sign your animal-loving pal up for a monthly subscription.

Sign up for Literati and open your mind to a world of new ideas. Join a book club organized by thought leaders like Megan Rapinoe, Cheryl Strayed, Roxane Gay, Malala Yousafzai, and Stephen Curry, and have the book delivered right to your door.
