Cracking the Xmas gift is the annual man dilemma. Another pair or socks for Dad? Knock off perfume for Mum AGAIN? Cubic zirconia for the Mrs? Well not this year! Check out our 4 great gift subscriptions, a great option for all, that will remind them each month just how generous you are!
Montezuma’s Real Chocolate Club (pictured above) - £19.99 per month
Montezuma’s is a fantastic bit of British craftmanship – and their chocolate club is a real winner for the ladies in one’s life. For under a score (that’s £20 to those born after 1978) – you will get a lovely box of 36 truffles and 3 bars of chocolate bliss, (We just wolfed / savoured a box of Dark Chocolate Eton Mess truffles and a bar of Salted Peanut Butterscotch in the office) weighing in at over half a kilo of dark, milk and white goodness.
STACK Magazines Subscription – £58 per year (UK Delivery)
As much as we love to get our news online now, sometimes you can’t beat the aesthetic qualities of a good magazine, and usually the more eccentric, eclectic or down right weird the better. STACK’s magazine subscription will send you a different selection of the best independent magazines the English language has to offer – always delivering an amazing paper based surprise.
Coffeesmith’s Collective Espresso Subscription – £99.99 per year
If you have a coffee lover in your life then this is about as good as it can get. Handpicked by the chaps at Coffeesmith’s Collective (owners of shops such as London’s Department of Coffee and Social Affairs), this gets you a 350grm bag of some of the best Java beans available. Each month you’ll receive a different blend!
The Cheese Shed Subscription – £97.50 per year (3 deliveries a year)
