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...

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,
