‘Tis the season for holiday gift giving. But what do you get for your traveling friend or loved one that seems to have everything? You want to give a unique gift, something that they wouldn’t expect, and something that fits their wanderlusting personality.
Well, I find for the un-giftable people in my life, I love to give subscription boxes. In addition to being unique, you can choose a three, six, year, etc. subscription to keep the gifting going all year long.
Starts at $9.95/mo for Just a Taste and $24.95/mo for Full Kitchen Table Package. Subscriptions do not auto renew.
You may not always have the time (or money) for a vacation, but with Escape Monthly you can get a sense of vacation with your monthly box. This box is a bit more expensive than some of the others, but it also includes full sized luxury products from the area, as well as a travel guide. With spices, scarves, beauty products, and jewelry, this box is definitely geared towards women.
Made South features items, well, made in the south (of the U.S., that is). Past items have included candles, leather goods, spice blends, coffee and more. And you’ll also learn about the origins of the contents. This box is sent out quarterly (and set to auto-renew), or you can just purchase one box without auto-renew.
$39.00/box + $8 s/h; auto-renew available.
$100/box + $8 s/h.
Rad and Hungry focus on office goods from a different country each month. Each kit comes with a minimum of three items: writing instruments, paper goods, and a surprise mystery gift, a poster designed by Rad and Hungry, and info about the country. There are major price breaks the longer the subscription.
Starts at $16/box + s/h for 1 year subscription.
I live in Seattle, so, of course, I need to add a box from my adopted hometown. Rain City Box works with local Seattle (and slightly beyond) vendors to bring you items unique to the area. Past boxes have included local cheese, meats, cedar planks, and “12” gear.
Starts at $29/mo + tax + s/h. Auto-renews.
And, Michigan. Yes, Michigan. I hail from the Great Lake State, so I had to include some goodies from home. Each box includes five to six Michigan made products. Past selected products include soda, jams, candy, and hot sauces. Members earn free shipping and price breaks with longer subscriptions.
$35/mo, free shipping for members; auto-renews.
