15 UK Lifestyle Subscription Boxes

Gift guide suggestions of UK lifestyle subscriptions boxesWithin the world of blogging, subscription boxes are firmly at the top of the 'lust list' along with dreamy eye palettes and rose gold stationery.  However, step outside of that and it's surprising how many people are taken aback by the suggestion of a box of goodies arriving at your door every month - uh, or quarterly, bi-annually etc.  Anyway, after yet another encounter with someone who hadn't been introduced to the concept, I did a little exploring and put together 15 of the most impressive lifestyle subscription boxes available in the UK that I could find!  Better yet, I've cherry-picked various options for both men and women falling under the category of 'lifestyle' including food, beauty and more...
__________

Not Another Bill - £24/month - Aims to introduce subscribers to great artists, designers and brands.  The gifts are tailored to profiles and include options such as monogrammed notebooks and brass pencils

Degustabox - £12.99/month - A monthly surprise food box featuring 10-15 tasty products; a great way of introducing yourself to new (and at times unusual) foods

Pink Parcel - £10.50/month (£6.99 first time) - A monthly pick-me-up filled with pampering products to help the 'week' go a little more smoothly.  Subscribers let Pink Parcel know their dates, and then sit back and wait for the pretty things to arrive.

Psst!  Fascinating guest post on their blog by model Victoria Cain and her perspective on what it's like to get your period at fashion week

Montezuma's - £19.99/month - 600g of milk, white and dark Award Winning British chocolate delivered through your letterbox each month.  A little bit of what you fancy does you good?

__________

Glossybox - £10/month (get this month's for £6 with the code OCT40UK) - Glossy by name, glossy by nature.  Filled with 5 monthly treats, it's one of the most popular beauty subscription boxes in the game - aaand I think I may have just persuaded myself to subscribe...

I think the beauty of subscription boxes is they make brilliant treats for both ourselves and others.  One thing is for sure, if you're stumped for ideas when it comes to gift-giving, I'm pretty certain nobody would turn up their nose at a beautifully curated box of goodies - it's the gift that keeps on giving!  And hey, if one of these has caught your eye, maybe leave this window open in plain view ready for your future-gift-giver to find.  I mean, Christmas is just around the corner!  Wink, wink...

With love,

  1. This is such a great list, Gabrielle! I am only familiar with Glossybox, Cohorted, My Little Box but not familiar with the others. How about Look Fantastic? And I think Latest In Beauty has one too?

  2. There are so many different types of subscription boxes out there every day and what's nice is that some of these are so specialized that there is probably one out there for everyone. Gabrielle, I totally agree that subscription boxes make brilliant treats both for ourselves or others. I certainly wouldn't mind getting a subscription to the Moi-Même or Bloom & Wild boxes :)

  3. These all sound so nice!! The Hotel Chocolat box is definitely up my alley! Are the Glossy Box subscriptions available in Canada?

    1. Hey Renee, Glossybox's FAQs state they ship to the following countries: UK/Ireland, Austria, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Poland, South Korea, Sweden and the USA. Although having said that, there seems to be plenty of recent Canadian Glossybox reviews online - so best ask Glossybox direct! :)

  5. Omg I want Bloom & Wild box! Canada's boxes aren't as great, especially if they started out in another country! I used to sub to Topbox and Ipsy but stopped now! So many beautiful options, I wish I was living in UK!!

  10. It's so nice to see a list of subscription boxes that are not only beauty boxes. To be honest, it feels like a breath of fresh air. I would love to subscribe to the foody ones, as well as all different kinds of stuff. You are so right - this is a great idea for a Christmas gift.

  15. I had no idea there were so many of these monthly boxes now, this is so cool! I'd only heard about the Degustabox before, but I think I'd definitely subscribe to The Vegan Kind beauty box out of all of them. I'm always looking for vegan and cruelty free products so that kind of thing is really useful for me. Great list! - Tasha

  24. There are so many fantastic boxes on this list! I had no idea that there were such things as flower subscription boxes! My personal favorite is the chocolate one...because CHOCOLATE :D Cohorted also sounds lovely! I wouldn't mind paying that price for a few higher end beauty product samples :)

  32. Oh I so wish we could get the Hotel Chocolat tasting subscription here! :D My friend loved their store (in London I think) and brought us some over, it was so delicious they make great chocolate.

    This is such a good wrap-up of boxes, thanks for sharing! :)

  36. The London Sock Company has a lot of charity work behind what they do as well. I loved your list! This one for men is wonderful they make very custom type styles. The GlossyBox is also great :) I think this was a very interesting research you did on these. I love some of these choices :) http://www.bauchlefashion.com/2016/10/hot-bucket-in-city.html

  38. WOW! All of these subscription services sound amazing and worth joining for what it seems you get! I know for sure my husband would love the two that are tailored for men because he LOVES matching his socks to his ties and he loves accessorizing with pocket squares and lapels; I wish they had something like that here in the States, they probably do, I just need to look into it. I'm also intrigued by the Pink Parcel. Girl, it's the WORST when your "friend" comes during Fashion Week, all the worse case scenarios go through your mind, haha. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having the best week so far!

  54. I'm not a fan of subscription boxes, I always feel like you get 80% crap and 20% amazingness. Hehehehe. Well maybe with beauty ones. But I have to say the mention of a chocolate one, ummm, I can totally get on board with.

  64. Oo oh my! The chocolate boxes without a shadow of a doubt look ever so appealing especially the ones by Montezuma's! You've given your readers serious chocolate cravings no doubt after looking at this eye candy (quite literally)

    I do like some boxes and Cohorted is one I do like more so for their beauty products, I need to review some more soon actually.

    Lovely post and I'll have to look into a few of these especially if it means having luxury chocolate coming through the post each month ;)
