Last minute Christmas gift guide – try a subscription box!

Christmas is coming… we’re just days away now. Think it’s too late to give a classy personalized gift that your friends or family will adore? Think again. Think SUBSCRIPTION BOXES!

Hugely popular across America, delivery services have become increasingly popular in Britain, with a huge number of start-up companies tapping into the demand for everyday products, specialized beauty items, foodstuffs and fun-stuffs!

You can give a thoughtful gift that caters to exactly what your loved ones really want, without having to fight the hustle and bustle that holiday shopping can bring. There are SO many to choose from… I thought I’d show you a few of the really fabulous boxes you can get delivered just in time (whew) for Christmas.

Beauty products

Glossybox, from £8.50


Glossybox has all the beauty you’re looking for, with monthly deliveries of gorgeous beauty goodies.

Wrapped in a pretty little box, these sample sizes and new products cost £10 a month (plus p&p), and can be bought in batches or as a one-tine purchase.




From only £13 each month with the Lookfantastic Beauty Box subscription, subscribe now to ensure you never miss out on a box. The best part? Not only do you get amazing products each month, but with our new subscription options, you can pay MONTHLY and not upfront! Now there’s no reason to resist temptation anymore.


Cohorted £35.00 (inc. free delivery)


Treat yourself to our gorgeous Beauty Box. It contains a secret selection of hand-picked beauty must haves, enclosed in an elegant all black exterior, and finished with a luxury hand tied bow.


Foodies Unite!



If celebrity chef Jamie Oliver recommends it then how can it be wrong? The Hello Fresh subscription service takes all the hard work out of your weekly shop by providing you with fresh ingredients measured out perfectly for you and your family to enjoy. Gift for them. Gift for you! Double win.




Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!

Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.

All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

And of course… Graze.


You’ve seen it on TV and in magazines, Graze is one of the most widely well known subscription boxes.  You can choose from over 100 different snacks and get them delivered as often as you want (every week, 2 weeks, month etc) for £3.99 a box. Delicious… monthly. We like this.

LifeBox Food Co. Health & Superfoods Delivered


Each Lifebox is supercharged and packed to the brim with meticulously and lovingly selected health foods – real food to get the nation excited about eating well. Each month you can discover the latest and greatest wholesome health food goodies from home, helping you to create a pantry of everyday staples that assist your body’s natural processes. As Hippocrates so wisely advised:

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”

And now for something completely different… if you can’t make up your mind.

Not Another Bill, from £24




What a lovely idea – a surprise gift tailored to your specifications (or that of your gift-ee) It’s the gift that keeps on giving all year long!


Bright Paper Packages

A parcel of surprise gifts to unwrap every month. All year long. Score!


There are even gift boxes for your pets… if you’re into that sort of thing. 


Monthly surprise box with toys, treats and grooming products for your pet.


Cat Hampurr

When you sign up for a Cat Hampurr, you will receive a box of carefully selected feline products and presents for your kitty.


And I really love this one… BOOKS!

Willoughby Book Club
Based on information provided by you, we’ll deliver a new, hand selected book once a month to a gift recipient of your choice. Beautifully wrapped with a personal message and tailored to their tastes, our book subscription box makes the perfect literary gift for any book worm – young or old!

So as you can see… last minute doesn’t have to mean scraping the bottom of the barrel at Tesco for the last pair of socks.

You can be thrifty, elegant, and provide stunning gifts that can last the whole year long with very little effort. I’d love to hear more about your last minute gift ideas! Hit me up on Facebook or Twitter and let’s talk about it!
