Sometimes a last minute visit to a friend’s house happens. Sometimes you’ve been planning to stay with family for a while but just never got around to finding the perfect gift for the host who has everything. Sometimes you just plain forgot. Whatever the reason, we won’t let your host think (see: know) you’re a horrible person. Just kidding. You’re busy. We know. Either way, we’ve got your solution: an easy and super 21st century idea of a giftable service, subscription, or cool experience. With the click of a mouse, or tap of a finger, these subscriptions make hostess gift giving easier than ever and, when done right, can show your host how much you appreciate them.
Here, some delicious, thirst quenching, and out of the ordinary ways to say thank you. The best part: Your host will be reminded each month just how much they like you. That is a guaranteed invite back.
Hatchery: Honestly, we never get sick of the new products that Hatchery introduces to us. Their subscription box is the perfect gift for someone who loves to cook – because who doesn’t love a little monthly inspiration?
FuegoBox: We’ve already told you that we’re obsessed with the hot sauce delivery service. But we’ll tell you again. We are consistently amazed and grateful at how many different ways ghost chiles can be turned into sauce.
Raw Spice Bar: Because a kitchen without spice is like a day without sunshine. Or something like that.
Carnivore Club: For the cured-meat-eater in your life. Charcuterie for days. And days.
NonnaBox: Italian food subscription that’s just like getting a care package from Grandma. Well, if you’re grandma’s Italian. And a good cook.
Craft Beer Club: Because everyone’s got a craft beer person in their life.
Twist Your Sprits: Ready-to-make cocktail recipes in super-cute packaging. We call that the perfect montly pick-me-up.
Vodka (or Whiskey, Bourbon, Gin, or Wine) of the Month: 1 full-size bottle of a craft spirit from a different indie brand every single month.
Other Fun Stuff
Pipsticks: There are some adults who like stickers, okay? WE ARE TWO OF THEM. This subscription is one of the best things we’ve ever encountered. Get a subscription for your host, and also for you damn self.
Allure Beauty Box: The best beauty products selected by Allure editors. The products are always on-point, the sizes are great, and you’ll never hurt for “travel-sized” products again!
Book of the Month: Sometimes it feels like there are so many books out there it’s hard to choose one. Book of the Month club narrows it down for you – presenting 4 choices each month, chosen by writers, celebs, and other tastemakers. Don’t like any this month? You can skip it.
Timeshel: For your insta-crazy friend, give the gift of tiny prints of their iPhone photos. Perfect to preserve summer memories.
BarkBox: Because sometimes the way to someone’s heart is through their dog’s heart. And tummy.
