Subscription boxes have been all the rage since the pandemic began. After all, who wouldn’t love a box of surprise treats delivered straight to their door monthly? Whether it’s wine, snacks, or even dog toys for your furry friend’s amusement, there’s a subscription box for every age, gender, taste (and species, while we’re at it!)
If you want that special someone to think of you fondly all year long, and not just on Valentine’s Day, consider giving a subscription box based on their interests, needs or habits. Most of the subscription companies make it easy to cancel. So if you decide the idea has run its course, your budget changes, or –worst-case scenario – you break up, you can cancel with a click or two.
How do you pick the best subscription box for your love? First, think about their interests and hobbies. What do you like to do together? Are they active? Do they like crafts? Home-brewing? Outdoor adventures? Food and wine? Fashion?
Subscription services give an opportunity to try a variety of styles, brands, or flavors of favorite items. Often, they can introduce you to new items you may not have considered. You can sometimes find the items on Amazon if you decide you want more of the same!
If you sign up for subscription service as a gift for a loved one, though, it’s important to pay attention to see if the gift is still delivering the value you expect over time. If they barely open the box each month or don’t get excited to see it on the doorstep anymore, it may be time to cancel – or at least switch to a different kind of subscription!
Take a look at these choices and you’re sure to find the perfect recurring gift for the love of your life.
