Giving gifts is hard. The task grows when you need to manage the gift giving festivities of the holiday season. For something a little out of the ordinary, but that shows you still know your charge, consider giving a subscription service.


When I was finishing high school, it seemed like subscription services were few and far between. There was one for pop culture, but that was the only one I was aware of. Fast forward, and it seems like there is a box for anyone.


Vellabox is perfect for those on your list who can never have enough candles. Some people might enjoy going out and picking out a few, but Vellabox is perfect because it continues giving well after the holidays. The service offers three tiers of gift subscriptions, ranging $10–30 per month. In addition to the candles, each box includes a fun mystery gift.


As someone who recently received this subscription as a birthday gift, I can vouch for Book of the Month as an excellent, gift-able subscription service. The premise is simple. Each month, the website curates five books. The receiver chooses one or more and the book is sent to them. Users can pick as many books as they want to receive in a month. The subscription is available in three-, six- and 12-month increments for gifts.


If there is anyone who loves a dog like it is a human child, consider gifting Bark Box. Every month, this box delivers treats, toys and more to a lucky pup. When setting the subscription up, you just choose the size of the dog, enter its name and choose how long you want them to receive the gift. This subscription is available from individual boxes to three-, six- and 12-month increments.


If none of these subscriptions work for the person on your list, just do a quick search. From horror to flowers to wine, there is truly a subscription box for everything. If all else fails, consider a gift card to a subscription site, as most of them offer one-off gifts instead of whole subscriptions as well.
