The best gifts are often the ones that just keep on giving – which is exactly why gifting a subscription service is so great. Streaming services, subscription boxes, memberships and more all make great gifts, so we’ve rounded up some of our favorites to get everyone on your list (including yourself).
Whether you sign the recipient up for just a few months or an entire year, you’ll be giving them something that reminds them of you every time they use the service, or the box shows up in the mail.
Subscription services are also often a one-size-fits-most type of gift, since the recipient can usually customize what they get out of the service. Subscriptions don’t have to be wrapped, and they don’t have to be stuffed into a suitcase when the holidays are over.
For the Whole Family
One of the newest streaming services to hit the market, Disney+ is generating a lot of buzz. It’s an affordable subscription that is compatible with lots of devices. Plus, the content library goes far beyond just the animated classics.
Price: $70 per year, or $7 per month
For the beauty guru
Birchbox is one of the OG subscription boxes, and it has a cult following of subscribers who swear by the monthly box of beauty samples tailored to fit your preferences. They even have grooming boxes for the man in your life

Allure Beauty Box
Get a monthly box of editor-approved beauty products that comes with a mini-mag packed with tips. The retail value of the boxes is usually around $100, so it’s a great deal. Plus, if you gift a subscription, you’ll also receive a box to keep for yourself.

For the fashionable-forward
Buying jewelry for someone else can be tricky and expensive. Rocksbox, however, lets your recipient choose the pieces they want, and then in a month they send them back and can choose three new pieces. So, you’re basically giving them the gift of jewelry and shopping, without the risk of making a permanent decision for them.
Price: 3 months for $49, 6 months for $99, 12 months for $189
Fab Fit Fun
This is kind of the holy grail of lifestyle subscription boxes. Fab Fit Fun is a box valued at $200+ filled with full-size beauty products, clothing, home goods, and more. Plus, members have access to FABFITFUNTV, an on-demand workout library.
Price: Gift cards (that can be applied to a membership, add-ons, and shop purchases) start at $25
For the Foodie
Wine Down Box
While there are lots of wine subscriptions out there, Wine Down Box is great because your monthly bottle of wine comes with perfectly paired cheese and charcuterie. It’s basically a date night in a box.
