Last Minute Christmas Gifts, Just a Click Away

Posted December 24, 2011 by in Shopping

Turkey in the fridge? Check. Cookies in the oven? Check. Presents all wrapped and under the tree? Oh no!!!!! The holidays are a great time to re-connect with friends and family, however, they can also be stressful — so stressful in fact that you forgot to buy your third cousin Mary and Aunt Karen a gift, or maybe you left your best friend’s gift in your dorm.

It’s Christmas Eve and every store is rightfully closed. What are you to do? A subscription gift of course! Your friend or relative may not be able to open your gift on Christmas, but instead they’ll get to open up a new gift every month until Christmas 2012!

Birchbox: Perfect for the girly girl. Every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. They’ll receive anything from skincare to makeup to cult beauty tools, from well-known brands as well as emerging gems. All this for only $10/month. Gift one to three months instead of a whole year (to save on money)!

Craft Coffee: Perfect for the coffee lover. What’s better than discovering amazing new coffees from around the world? An expert panel at Craft Coffee carefully selects the best premium coffees from small artisan roasters around the country.

Once signed up, your person of choice will receive 12 ounces of amazing coffee from three different roasters. Starting at $19.99/month. This gift can get pricey, so just buy a month or two!

 Prefer tea over coffee? Check out Steepster Select.

 Bluum: Perfect for the new mom. Bluum is the newest way for moms to discover and test products each month. Once a month, Bluum sends a box with 4-5 deluxe product samples like organic skin care, lip balm, stretch-mark cream, small toys, snacks and baby wipes to member’s homes.

In the convenience of home, moms can try the products and leave reviews, which earn them store credit towards purchasing full-size products. Three months only $33.

You could also gift a Christmas popcorn tin. They’re delicious and great for the people in your life who like hosting parties.

Take advantage of these awesome subscription services, and let us know what you think! Happy Holidays from B&C!
