For some last minute Christmas gift inspiration, here's our guide to subscription gifts that will keep on giving well into 2019.

 

Looking for last minute Christmas gift inspiration? Look no further. If you've left things to the last minute, this year give a gift that will keep on giving long after the presents have all been ripped open and the excitement of Christmas Day has worn off, with a subscription gift that is truly not just for Christmas.

From sockscriptions to weekly coffee deliveries and monthly books, here are some of our favourite subscription gifts to bring a smile come January:

Perky Blenders Coffee Subscription

Give a coffee lover the gift of a weekly caffeine fix with a coffee subscription from Perky Blenders. With beans roasted daily in Perky Blenders' East London home, your 200g of (really good) coffee will be delivered fresh in biodegradable packaging.  Choose from four blends - their Forest Blend, Blend of the Month, Single Origin, and Decaf - then chooe your grind and how often you want it delivered. If your recipient lives in Walthamstow or Leyton it will be delivered by bike to cut down on emissions.

The Willoughby Book Club

The perfect gift for book worms of all ages, the Willoughby Book Club delivers a new, hand selected book once a month to your chosen gift recipient based on the information you provide about them.  Book subscriptions are tailored by different age groups, from 0-12 months to adult, and can also be tailored by interests such as cookery, gardening, natural history, as well as more classic literature. Books arrive beautifully wrapped each month with a personal message, and tailored to the recipient's reading tastes by The Willoughby Book Club's team of literary experts.

Jollie's Socks

Everyone loves getting a new pair of socks, so why not give that joy each month with a Jollie's sockscription? For each pair of socks sold, Jollie's provides a pair to a local homeless shelter.

Authentic House Home Box Subscription

The Home Box from Authentic House is a monthly subscription box designed to help the recipient to make a positive change to your life each month. Focusing on sustainable and ethical living, products are chosen each month that are genuinely useful and can help reduce waste and plastic at home, with the occasional self-care product or treat thrown in. All items are sourced from independent businesses based in the UK and most boxes are vegan friendly (but you can also choose to elect for vegan options only to guarantee this).

Buddy Box

Social enterprise Blurt is dedicated to helping those affected by depression. Its monthly Buddy Box subscription is effectively a hug in a box, providing five full-size quality products each month that are hand-picked to nourish, inspire and encourage self-care, making this the perfect present for someone that needs a little helping hand to de-stress and find calm.

Cocoa Runners Monthly Subscription

The dream gift for chocoholics everywhere has to be Cocoa Runners' monthly subscription. Each month, four 'bean-to-bar' chocolate bars will be delivered to your recipient's door. Each craft chocolate bar is sourced direct from artisan chocolate makers that source their beans ethically from around the world, many of them dealing directly with the farmers themselves. A feel-good and delicious gift.
