Monthly subscriptions you can’t live without
Subscription boxes reign supreme as the ultimate gift – whether that’s for yourself (guilty) or a loved one.
Essentially the ‘subscription box’ is an upgraded version of a voucher, they’re as easy and quick to sort as an e-gift card, but far more thoughtful. Once you’ve handed over your money, someone else takes on all the effort of expertly curating, packaging, and shipping your gift and you get to sit back and take all the credit. The only hurdle is knowing what kind of subscription you need or want, given there are literally hundreds out there. To help, I’ve researched the top 5 subscriptions for 2022.
HelloFresh is a rolling weekly meal kit delivery service with no minimum term or commitment. You choose what goes in your box and when you want it and they will deliver all the fresh ingredients to your door. And if you want to skip a week, cancel or change anything, that’s no problem.
