It’s December 16… how are you doing on your Christmas shopping list? If you are like me, you might have clicked a few gifts to your shopping cart on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But truth be told, I despise shopping in malls and I’m not really into wrapping presents as much as I love to give them. I’m also often a last minute gifter – but last minute doesn’t have to mean any less thoughtful or inspired. (You might have seen this post about my winning subscription gift to The Giant for his birthday one year.)
So if you are still scrambling around to find the perfect last minute gifts for friends, family and/or your significant other, take a look at my favorite picks for the best box gift subscriptions. Some of them are SO good, you’ll have your recipient gushing about how out-of-the-box you think. (Excuse the pun.) Don’t feel bad if you end up gifting yourself, too!
Rent the Runway Unlimited: $139/month. You choose 3 designer pieces that you can keep as long as you want and exchange anytime. Return 1, 2 or 3 of your items when you’re ready and select new pieces for your next shipment. You can cancel your auto-renewal anytime.
Stitch Fix: $20 styling fee (apply towards your final order) plus whatever items you choose to keep. Your personal shopper selects pieces customized to your spending preferences. Celebrate with a discount when you love all 5 items!
Trunk Club: No styling fee and pay only for what you choose to keep. Though technically not a subscription service, Trunk Club will send you a trunk featuring hand-selected, premium brands.
