Subscription Boxes for the Person Who Has Everything

Updated for 2017!

One of our favorite things about gifting subscription boxes is that you can give curated “gift box” without doing all the shopping and assembly yourself! This holiday season, there are a few standout boxes that we think would be great gifts for the people on your list who are so hard to buy for. These are boxes that provide exclusive products and experiences that are always well curated, and/or offer lots of flexibility for the recipient (to make sure they aren’t getting something they already own). Read on to see our recommendations, and cross off those question marks on your gift list!

For the person who’s sophisticated, but not stuffy…

Breo Box

The Cost: $139.00 per quarter. Use coupon code MSA15 to save $15 off your first box!

The Products: Receive a handcrafted customized wood box each quarter with 6-9 essential, upscale products. Each box is also carefully curated to provide products that are fitting to the season.

Ships to: US for free. Shipping to Canada is $45.00. All other international shipping charges will be calculated on checkout. Customers are also responsible for customs fees (if applicable).

Why we recommend it: Breo Box talks a big game, boasting curated products that can “enhance your daily life.” And they can back it up! This box is always full of surprises—high-quality, exciting surprises that always feel modern and cool.

What’s in the box: Each seasonal box includes lifestyle, decor, fitness, and technology finds. And while some items might seem ordinary, like scented candles and luxurious bath products, you’ll also get cool cutting-edge surprises like speakers, Amazon tech, and other brag-worthy goodies.

How to give as a gift: There’s no official way to gift a Breo Box, so we recommend signing up for a subscription and putting your recipient’s information in the shipping address form. Then, you can cancel the subscription when you see fit. Learn all about how the subscription works here.

  1. For the design-minded guy who loves small-batch products…

  2. Bespoke Post

  3. The Cost: $45 per month. Save 25% off your first box! with coupon code ADDICT25
  4. The Products: Monthly men’s lifestyle items, curated around a theme.Ships to: The US and Canada
  5. Why we recommend it: Bespoke Post is known for their well-designed boxes that focus on high-quality products around a specific theme. They release a new set of themed boxes each month, and when you buy a gift, the recipient has the option to choose which box they want to receive. That means you can ensure they’re getting something they want, but it’s a more personal process than just giving a gift card. Although intended for men (many boxes do include masculine accessories and personal care items or men’s apparel), some of the boxes are unisex and make great gifts for women, too—like those oriented around food or home products.
  6. What’s in the box: It’s always different, but expect “best in class,” artisanal, small-batch products curated around various themes. Bespoke Post announces their new boxes each month, so you can preview exactly what’s inside before you commit. Check out their current offerings by looking at the “Boxes” tab on their website.
  7. How to give as a gift: Follow this link and choose “Give a Gift” at the top of the page to set up a 1, 3, 6, or 12-month gift subscription!

For the kid at heart…

The Nick Box

The Cost: $49.99 + $7.00 shipping/handling per quarter

The Products: A mystery selection of new, licensed 90s Nickelodeon show clothing, accessories, toys, and more!

Ships to: The US and Canada.

Why we recommend it: For kids who grew up in and around the 90s, there are few things as iconic (or awesome) as Nickelodeon cartoons and shows. This subscription brings all of these TV favorites back to life in exclusive, delightfully clever, licensed designs that will drive any pop-culture collector wild. Every time a Nick Box arrives, the whole MSA team ooh and aahs over what’s inside!

What’s in the box: Each quarterly box is filled with limited-edition, can’t-find-it-anywhere-else surprises to wear, decorate with, or even keep in your kitchen. We love that the goodies are nice enough to find their way into your grown-up life, even if they’re inspired by Spongebob, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, and Rocko’s Modern Life!

How to give as a gift: This box doesn’t have a formal gift subscription, so we recommend signing up for the subscription of your choice and just inputting your recipient’s shipping address. Follow this link to get started!

  2. Why we recommend it: BRIKA is an Ontario-based retailer that showcases the best and brightest of modern craft. It’s such a fun site to shop and full of unique holiday finds. But if you’d rather leave the gifting to the professionals, check out their thoughtfully curated subscription box offerings filled with products from BRIKA‘s beloved makers!
  3. What’s in the box: Their subscription boxes are 100% personalized to your recipient, so you can be sure they’ll get something they’ll love! Start by choosing the duration of your subscription, fill out a quick questionnaire about your recipient’s interests and tastes, then sit back while BRIKA’s “Gift Concierge” does the rest, selecting products from their inventory of modern, contemporary crafts from makers around the world. They’ll even handwrite a note for you and include it in the box!

      The Products: Each month you’ll get a box featuring one or more green beauty products from The Detox Market’s brand of the month at a value of at least $90 with complimentary shipping.

      Ships to: US only.

    4. Why we recommend it: Shopping for a beauty lover? You know we at MSA love a good beauty box, and the natural angle of this box by The Detox Market sets it apart from the crowd. The products are as high-quality and chic as mainstream ones, but these harder-to-find potions will have any recipient feeling like an insider.
    5. What’s in the box: You’ll get a green product (or products) in your box, made by a featured creator. The Detox Box includes a card detailing the product as well as the brand behind it. Expect natural products that deliver as much wow-factor (and fresh packaging) as the big names at the beauty store!

  1. Robb Vices

    The Cost: $89.95 + shipping (For reference, shipping to DC is $7.95.) (less with longer subscriptions). Use code MSAVICELOVE to receive a bonus gift when you sign up for a 6- or 12-month subscription!

    The Products: Each box contains a curated selection of products and experiences and provides subscribers with a taste of the good life!

    Ships to: Robb Vices ships to all US states except ND, UT.

    Why we recommend it: This is one of the few boxes where we see truly new and innovative products month after month. No wonder it’s an MSA reader favorite!

    What’s in the box: Robb Vices, which was created by the publishers of luxury lifestyle magazine, Robb Report, focuses on conveying “authenticity and intrigue” in each box. Expect a mix of alcohol, food, and corresponding products like glassware, gadgets, and more. Each cohesive collection of products creates a unique experience that you can indulge in on your own, or in the company of friends. Think out-of-the-ordinary cocktails and foods, high-quality home goods, sleek accessories, and more. Robb Vices always includes plenty of background information about their items, too, so that you can get a sense of each item’s significance and how best to enjoy them.

    How to give as a gift: Just follow this link and choose “Give a Gift” at the top of the page to start a 1, 3, 6, or 12-month gift subscription box. These plans appear to recur, so you do need to cancel once your intended subscription length is complete!

  1. POPSUGAR Must Have x Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Box

    The Cost: $250.00 for this one-time box.  SOLD OUT!

    The Products: Beautiful, high-end items perfect for a sparkling holiday soiree! PopSugar recently confirmed that this year’s box has a total retail value of $783.00. Wow!

  2. Good to know: You can also enter to win a Neiman Marcus box here!
  3. Ships to: The US only. Boxes ship by November 27, but hurry—there are limited quantities, so place your order ASAP!

Why we recommend it: POPSUGAR does this box every holiday season, and we’ve been fans of this collaboration since the beginning! It’s an amazing gift for anyone who wants a little taste of luxury in their life. It’s also the perfect box to buy and break up into smaller gifts, so you can have a little something special for everyone on your list for practically no effort.

What’s in the box: Some (amazing) spoilers are starting to trickle in. (You can keep track of the latest news here!) Here’s what we do know, according to the folks at PopSugar:

We’ve teamed up with Neiman Marcus to give you a covetable box filled with treats ideal for gifting or for keeping all to yourself. This box is filled with over $750 worth of luxurious items you need for the holidays from sparkling home decor to beauty gifts that will make you glow.

Select between gold or silver hues to get a box shining with your preferred color delivered right to your door. Each box will contain all of the same items, but the color of 5 of the 9 products will vary based on your metallic preference.

How to give as a gift: Okay, so technically this isn’t a subscription box (though we totally recommend the much-loved PopSugar Must Have subscription), but that means you conveniently don’t have to subscribe to purchase! Just follow this link to get yours! Keep in mind that the boxes will ship by November 27—that might affect whether you want to have the box delivered directly to your recipient or to your own address (so you can give it to them closer to the big day)!

It’s definitely a good pick for arts-and-culture-leaning friends who are looking to expand their horizons further. Boxwalla Book always surprises us with unsung authors and unique, international perspectives.

  4. The Cost: $60.00 per quarter ($20.00 per month, paid quarterly)

    The Products: Quarterly curated tasting packs that contain 3 x 1.5 oz. vials of premium spirits from around the world. (Membership in the “Flaviar Speakeasy” also includes access to bottle offers and the Flaviar Vault of rare, vintage and exclusive drams in bottle and sample sizes, plus free shipping on any number of bottles or Tasting Boxes.)

    Good to Know: All boxes are shipped from Europe and can take 4-14 days to arrive in the US.

  5. Why we recommend it: Flaviar is the go-to place to discover and taste craft and premium spirits, from Bourbon and Scotch to Rum, Gin, Cognac and others. It’s a perfect pick for folks looking to expand their understanding of different spirits (and their living room bar cart). Membership costs $60.00 per quarter (which breaks down to $20.00/month), offers a wide variety of perks & benefits you will not find elsewhere, and delivers the vibe of a 1920’s speakeasy club right to your door.

Your Flaviar Speakeasy membership grants you access and free shipping on bottles!

    Ships to: The US and Canada.

  11. Why we recommend it: Luxor Box is an amazing luxury gift in and of itself, but it’s also one of the best boxes for splitting up the items into multiple gifts, too. We often find products here that we don’t see in other boxes.
  12. What’s in the box: Luxor Box describes the contents of their boxes as “Luxurious Discoveries”. Each box contains 4-9 full-size, hand-picked, products with a retail value of $275+ per delivery.

  1. Rob Vices does not ship to all states – For example, PA prohibits it because it sometimes contains alcohol and that would violate their liquor laws. I know this because I’m in PA and have been lusting over it for months!!
