subscription ideas for adults

If you’re looking for a gift for the person who has everything (or just want to try something new) look no further than subscriptions!

Subscription boxes are great because many allow the recipient to tailor what they want to their own specific tastes. Plus, you don’t have to worry about shipping deadlines! For most subscriptions, the gift comes via e-mail so they can choose what they want and when. For that reason, this also makes it a fantastic last-minute gift!!

These subscriptions make wonderful gifts that keep giving month after month!

Subscription Gift Ideas for Adults:

Bean Box

For anyone that loves coffee, check out a monthly box from Bean Box! You’ll get 4 expertly-curated coffees each month handpicked from the top roasters around world.

They’ll get to select exactly what they want in their Bean box.  Light or Dark roast, ground or whole bean, fruity, chocolatey…  each box is exactly tailored to their preferences! Grab a gift subscription for your favorite coffee lover!



One fun subscription box is FabFitFun, which comes with items related to fitness and health. 

This company sends boxes with beauty items and makeup, letting you sample things before you spend a ton of money on a full bottle of something. Boxes start at $15/month or less, if you buy more months at a time.


birch box

Birchbox is great for makeup and skin care. I’m not even that into skin care, but I received a Birchbox subscription for 3 months several years ago and found many products that I’m still using!

You can gift a plan for 3, 6, or 12 months starting at just $13 a month! Your recipient will receive a variety of high-end skincare and makeup samples every month!



This is a great gift for the dog parents on your list! With Barkbox, choose the size of the dog and they’ll receive your box on the 15th of every month.

Each month they’ll pack healthy treats, fun toys and innovative gadgets for your pups.

allure Beauty Box

Here’s another great gift for the beauty lover in your life. The allure Beauty Box comes once a month and is packed with high-end and exclusive products – both sample and full-sized items! Grab a three-month subscription for just $69!

Walmart Beauty Box

Head to Walmart.com and you can sign up and receive a beauty box each season (4 times a year) that are packed with deluxe samples, coupons and tips. There’s also a fun quiz that tailors the box items to the individual person!

I love the Walmart beauty box because it’s the most frugal option – just $6.98 shipped once a season!

First Leaf

For the wine enthusiasts, grab an awesome wine monthly box subscription!

FirstLeaf is a monthly wine box that sends you personalized selections based on what you like.  You’ll start with a fun 9 question quiz to determine what flavors you like (and dislike) and then you’ll see the introductory bottles they think will fit your tastes.

I actually tried this one for myself! We’ve gotten a few boxes from them and have loved everything they send.  There are brands we would have never tried and many that you can’t get locally.

Bonus Idea: Target Beauty Box
