With a bevy of relatives and friends with eclectic interests to please, holiday shopping never really gets any simpler. You might have your mom and BFFs tastes down pat, but what about the ladies in your life that require a little more guess work? It’s risky to unload funds on something you think they might love, but it can feel impersonal to give another gift card. But with Christmas and Hanukkah just weeks away, you need to come up with something.
Enter the all-encompassing subscription box. Each of these delivered-to-door packages is the gift that keeps on giving in terms of what’s hot right now, so they’re perfect for women of discerning taste. Whether it’s workout clothes, accessories, or a makeup trend she’s been dying to try, there’s a tailored service for just about everyone.
Here, we rounded up some of our favorite subscription boxes to take the guess work out of your gifting this season.
