27 of the best subscription gifts to send yourself in lockdown
Subscription deliveries are booming. Here's some of the best to brighten your day.
If you’ve ever had a weekly fruit-and-veg box, monthly magazine or quarterly wine subscription arrive at the door, you’ll know the special pleasure of discovering what’s inside. At a time when we could all use a little something to brighten the day, subscription home-delivery services have been proliferating, making it easy to sample everything from cosmetics to craft spirits, or keep the jigsaw puzzles coming.
Beyond the delight of sending yourself a special treat every month, an online subscription can also help you get organised with set-and-forget deliveries of essentials such as toilet paper. Or it might save you money – curated boxes of sample-sized products, designed to generate consumer interest, are often priced below what you’d pay retail. And while treating yourself you may also be giving much-needed support to a local business or a good cause, as many subscription services are motivated by environmental or social concerns.
From beauty products to doggy treats or feminine hygiene, there’s a subscription service to suit just about every want and need.
