It may be hard to believe, but Christmas is just days away.

With some businesses cutting hours and the desire to stay away from crowds this year, an online gift subscription may be just the perfect gift.

The good thing is that in this day and age, there is a subscription for almost anything and getting one and having it delivered is quick and easy.

Here are some suggestions for monthly gift box subscriptions:


These boxes offer cosmetics, lotions, face masks and other beauty products – some full-sized, some sample size. The cost for these boxes average around $25 a month.


These monthly – or in some cases weekly _ boxes range from ingredients for full meals to fully prepared meals to assortments of snack items. The cost ranges from $5 per serving to $169 for three months of cheesecake.


If a friend or family member likes to try different wines, craft beers or unique liquor items, then a subscription to a “spirit-of-the-month” club could be the perfect gift. Wine and beer subscriptions are on the lower end of the monthly fee scale while other liquor items can be a bit pricy.


Monthly fitness subscriptions are heavy on workout clothing but also included in the genre are healthy snacks and some equipment. Prices range from $32 to $50.

Plants and flowers

Some lovely blooms arriving at your door each month? That’s a thoughtful and lovely gift. Prices range from around $35 a month to $60 a month.


These gifts let you extend Christmas for the kids for the entire year. All for around $20 a month.

Pet lovers

Fido and Fluffy will enjoy toys and treats from these subscriptions. You’ll pay a variety of prices, depending on what you choose each month.


How can you go wrong with a good book? These subscriptions offer books and gifts ranging in price from $14.99 to around $45 per month.

Video subscriptions

Shows from the past and new creations are available on a whole slew of streaming video services. From about $6 to around $20 a month, a new world of entertainment can be opened up to you.
