CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: Subscriptions, Services & Experiences
For my last Christmas gift guide (see the previous ones here), I’m sharing some wonderful subscriptions, services & experiences which I love and think are perfect as Christmas presents this year!
Subscriptions are especially lovely to gift because the recipient receives their gift throughout the year while special experiences are something someone wouldn’t normally purchase for themselves so it provides them with a wonderful and memorable day.
The Parcel by Marie Claire has to be my favourite beauty subscription box on the market and they offer a number of different subscription packages as well as boxes (such as the Ageless and Men’s boxes). Although the box is quarterly, the inclusions are fantastic with a range of affordable and higher end brands. For reviews on past boxes, click here.
For lovers of fresh flowers, Petal Post is a wonderful gift idea. With a new selection of flowers delivered each week, the service allows you to create your own arrangement at home with the flowers packaged fresh and securely in a box, ready for you to arrange. They offer a range of subscription options from a one off purchase and up to a 3-6 month subscription.
Red Balloon is a fantastic website to look for special experiences and they’ve curated a range of thrilling, scenic, gourmet, relaxing, etc experiences that are perfect to enjoy over the holiday period.
You can’t go wrong with a magazine subscription as there are so many choices to choose from so you’re sure to find one that’ll be perfect for the person you’re gifting it too.
For a monthly beauty subscription box, Lust Have It is a lovely choice as their boxes have definitely improved over the last year and they offer you the chance to experience new products and brands every month. For reviews on past boxes, click here.
If you know someone who loves fashion or is trying to update their wardrobe, Samira’s Closet Personal Styling Sessions and Consultations are perfect. Some may find personal styling sessions daunting but the intimate feel of the boutique and the opportunity to have a group styling sessions is fabulous. I’ve met the team and they are such a lovely and welcoming group of ladies who will make you feel at ease whilst having fun and updating your wardrobe. By mentioning their flyer, you can receive 20% off clothing and accessories in-store whilst online, you can use the code ‘shop10’ for 10% off your online order.
Fans of natural beauty products will definitely be a fan of The Soap Box who produce all natural and Australian made soaps. Again, they offer a range of subscription otpions and each month, you’ll receive 2 beautiful bars of fragrant and beautifully packaged soaps for you to use.
