We Are All About Regifting From Subscription Boxes
Five of our favorite giftable brands are available right now!
We've all come to the realization that gifting may look a little different this holiday season. Not only will some of our most cherished holiday traditions require a bit of creativity to keep going, but, for some, in-person present shopping and even face-to-face gift exchanging might not feel like the best option. That's why this year we've decided to let you in on a little secret: subscription box regifting. We're serious! It's our favorite way to shop for the gift recipients on our list for a few reasons. It's amazing to have help selecting high-quality items, everything ships in one box at the same time, and, the big one, it's quite cost-effective. We're going to walk you through some of the most sought-after quarterly subscriptions and you'll get to see for yourself why easy Christmas gifting with subscription boxes is the way to go. We've also paired each of the items that come in these boxes with our suggestions of who might make a great gift recipient!
Updated on 11/2/20 to add the Paper Source Winter 2020 box to the list, and on 11/12/20 to add a link to our Paper Source review.

Here are our fave FabFitFun gift picks:
FabFitFun is filled with fabulous gift ideas, but we can't get enough of these three. The set of kate spade earrings is an utterly classic duo—one that would be just as cherished by our grandmothers or mothers as it would by our friends and nieces.
The Lilly Pulitzer mug set makes us smile thinking of soul-filling conversation enjoyed with someone we love over coffee or tea. Maybe that person is in your pod and you'll give this gift to make those mornings together extra-special, or maybe you're doing video dates these days, in which case you may mail one and keep one!
For makeup-lovers, palettes are one way of feeling totally treated. Sometimes we treat ourselves, and other times it's a thoughtful friend (that would be you in this case) who makes our dreamy eye wishes come true. The pinks, soft tones, and spicy accents of this Laura Geller eyeshadow palette are pure magic!
