14 Subscription Boxes For Everyone on Your 2021 List

Morgan Keegan

We've all had the "oh no!" moment during the holidays when we've either forgotten to get someone a gift, the gift we'd like to give won't arrive in time, or we just don't know exactly what someone would want.

Don't panic! Subscription boxes are the perfect solution. Here are some of our favorites for everyone on your list.

1. For the Constant Snacker

We all know someone who never leaves the house without a snack, or can't complete any task without having one hand in a chip bag. For the notorious snacker who needs a little variation in their late-night eats, give this Try Treats – International Snacks Subscription Box full of delicious unusual snacks.

2. For the Beauty Enthusiast

The Allure Beauty Box is a great option for anyone who'd like to try luxury beauty and makeup products but doesn't know where to start!

3. For the Skincare-Obsessed

If you'd like to treat someone who is always looking for the next best skincare item, the Dermstore BeautyFIX Box is the way to go. It includes at least six skincare samples each month.

4. For the Kid Who Needs a New Project

KiwiCo Subscription Boxes are great for kids of all ages and with varying interests. The best part — each project has the end goal of teaching them something, too!

5. For the Ultimate DIYer

The Adults & Crafts Subscription Box is made for anyone who loves DIY but doesn't have time to search for projects, plan and find the materials.

6. For the One Who Hates Clothes Shopping

We all know someone who despises shopping and just wishes the perfect ensembles would appear in their closet. Stitch Fix can help.

This subscription box has clothing in every style for men, women and children. All they have to do is take a style quiz and provide their measurements and they'll receive clothes, shoes and accessories delivered right to their door.

7. For the Vegan Beauty Fanatic

Are you gifting someone who exclusively uses vegan beauty products, or who wants to shift their beauty collection in that direction? The Vegancuts Beauty Subscription Box is a great option!

8. For the One Who Loves a New Gadget

Whether you're shopping for a home improvement DIYer or someone who loves practical items that do neat things, The Handy Box is sure to get them excited!

9. For the One Still Searching for a Signature Scent

Gifting perfumes and colognes is one of the hardest things to do because scents are personal to the individual. Don't stress — give the Scent Bird subscription box this year. Scent Bird will send samples of different perfumes and colognes to the recipient and they'll get to choose a full-size perfume at the end of the subscription!

10. For the Coffee Aficionado

If you know someone who can't function without their morning cup of coffee, the Driftaway Coffee World Explorer's Sampler Subscription Box is the ultimate gift! Each month they'll receive four new coffee samples from around the globe.

11. For the Dog Owner

Give a dog owner the best gift for their pup this year with a ChompBox subscription! Each month your giftee will receive a box with 5–7 products customized by their pup's age and size.

12. For the Cat Parent

Shopping for a cat mom or dad who loves to spoil their furbaby with new toys and treats? The MeowBox is an amazing and affordable option. Each themed box comes with 5–6 products per month that are so great their cat will be waiting by the door for the delivery!

13. For the One Who Needs to Take Time for Self-Care

We all know someone who is reluctant to make time for themselves. This Self-Care Subscription Box gives them just what they need to make self-care fun!

14. For the Plant Newbie

Are you shopping for someone who'd like to get into houseplants? The American Plant Exchange Endless Foliage Box is a great way to help them kick start their plant collection!

Don't stress about a gift this holiday season, and give someone a gift they'll be able to enjoy all year long!
