Last Minute Gift Subscriptions for Travelers
So I meant to put out my gift ideas a lot sooner, and now it’s a moot point, unless you’ve waited until the last minute. 🙂 So here are some of my favorite subscription boxes, perfect for frequent and armchair travelers alike.
And though the box won’t arrive in time for Christmas, you will be able to send a gift email or print out gift card in time for Friday.
Try the World — Every two months they send a box packed full of fun edibles from one country. It ranges from snacks, sweets and condiments and has reminded me of old favorites from my travels while introducing me to new delicacies. The current box features a variety of holiday items from around the world which makes it even more perfect.
And Try the World is offering Heels First Travel readers 15% off gift boxes and subscriptions with code heelsfirst15, which takes the price for a single box from $39 to $33.15 with free shipping, 3 boxes for $89.25, or 6 boxes for $168.30. Note: This only works on gift subscriptions.
Travel Size Beauty Products — There’s several great options for travel size beauty boxes. Each box contains 5 samples of anything beauty related — make up, skin care, nail polish, hair stuff, and more.
- Birchbox runs $10 a month, though right now you can get 20% off with code GIFTNOW20, and features nice but affordable brands.
- The Allure Beauty Box is a little pricier at $15 a month and features slightly upper end modern products.
- Glossybox at $21 a month is definitely more luxe, their samples are from high end (think Bvlguri) and emerging brands.
Outdoor Chic — for the outdoorsy folk, or like me the wannabe outdoorsy folk, Cairn offers a box with 5 nature-themed products. Everything from pocket bellows to natural snacks, to wine bags made for hiking. Runs $25 per box. If you do subscribe, please tell them email@example.com sent you. 🙂
Dinners on Demand — one of the things that makes coming back from a long trip much easier, is getting all the ingredients for sophisticated meals delivered to my door. It saves me a trip to the grocery store, keeps me eating healthy, and actually teaches me how to cook more complicated dishes. HelloFresh is the most straightforward, Blue Apron is my favorite. I also like Green Chef but they don’t deliver to the East Coast 🙁
International Ingredients — Spiced Pantry is like a combination of Hello Fresh and Try the World — they send you spices and condiments from one country each two months along with recipes various dishes you can make with them. Perfect for someone who likes a little more adventure than provided by meal delivery services.
