Our Guide to Best Subscription Gifts for 2020.
Holiday season is upon us once again and it looks quite different from years past.
2020 has brought many challenges and pushed us to various extremes in the way we work, travel, shop and socialize.
This year traditional gift giving needs a makeover. Let’s do something for our friends and family that is outside of the “new normal”, giving consistent reassurance of our love and regard for them. Instead of the usual “stuff” you purchase to give away, sign your loved ones up for a special experience or monthly surprise.
Yes, I am speaking of the subscription based gift. How delightful would it be to get a reminder every month of the year of how much you care and think about them? Just when they forgot about it, VOILA, there it is on their doorstep or in the mail box.
My first (and favorite) idea is to gift a monthly floral arrangement to be delivered. Laurel Winzler is a service I have personally used and can say is wonderful. Located in San Francisco but if you are not in this area or are in another state don’t worry, look up florists in your area, many also have this type of service.www.flaurel.com
There are many food subscriptions but for those who do cook and want to know where their food comes from I highly recommend Farm Fresh To You. This is a great company. Maybe you know someone who is struggling financially because of a layoff or just can’t get out to shop. This fresh from the farm delivery is ideal. You can also sign up to have a box delivered on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis to your local food bank. They service the Bay Area of California but again, there are many small, organic farms all over the country that offer a similar service. Do an online search for your area, you may want one for yourself. www.farmfreshtoyou.com
For the children in your life, this one is simply the cutest idea! They have several packages to choose from and are for different age ranges. It’s adorable. www.littlepassports.com
This one may interest the geeky collector and analogue curious. This is unique way to catalogue your favorite music. www.vinylmeplease.com
There is always a “holiday indulgence remorse” followed by the “New Year’s Resolutions” that peter out by February. This may help to keep the momentum going past Valentine’s Day into the summer months. www.fabfitfun.com
If you know a couple who has been together a while (maybe it’s you), this is a fun way to support getting the groove back. www.dateinbox.com
This is a classic for all the readers out there, the book of the month club. Honestly, Amazon does not need any more money from you. www.bookofthemonth.com
Coffee goes so well with reading and now that we are limited in our travel options why not try a subscription to the coffees of the world? www.atlascoffeeclub.com
I sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy now and throughout the many years to come.
