Best Subscription Boxes*


*This is a collaborative post*
I suppose I like to think of myself as something of a connoisseur when it comes to subscription boxes. After all, I've sampled more than a few. From books to pets, and stationery to beauty; I thought I'd tried them all. That was, until I came across an article over on Sensible Reviewer, about the best subscription boxes in the UK
Sensible Reviewer is a website run by a team of, well, sensible reviewers. Clue's in the name, guys... Based in the South West of England (hey, that's where I'm from!), this group of dedicated product hunters and reviewers share useful guides and reviews to help you find your next perfect purchase.
And with Christmas around the corner, what could be better?!


You might be thinking; a subscription box? For Christmas? Is she mad?! But many subscription box services will offer a gift option, or a one-off option. Not only is this quite an easy gift option, no busy stores, no wrapping; but it's also a great gift idea for the recipient. They receive a one-off subscription box that allows them to sample various products, most subscription boxes include a handful of items rather than just one, as well the subscription box itself. They might just decide this is something they want to subscribe to again! And voila, thanks to your gift, they've found a new firm favourite.
Reading through the list on Sensible Reviewer, of the best subscription boxes in the UK, I can see a few of my favourites popping up...Graze and The Willoughby Book Club, to name a few. But there are so many more than I ever thought possible, and I know that, if I have any money left after buying presents for everyone else, I'll be treating myself to one of the subscription boxes on this list, just in time for Christmas.
The UK, and US, subscription box market is oversaturated. And, if you've finally decided you want to try a subscription box, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. That's why I think Sensible Reviewer's guide to the best subscription boxes in the UK is so great. The list is short, they've really tried to keep it about the best boxes and not ALL the boxes, but there's still plenty to choose from; whether you're after a foodie subscription box or a tea and coffee subscription box. There's a wide variety to choose from.

  4. I'm always iffy about subscription boxes, sometimes they appeal to me because I love the idea of getting regular packages but then other times I think it might be a waste for me....

    1. I love them, but you don't always know exactly what you're going to get for your money. I think with all subscription boxes, some months are great and others not so great. I've had boxes in the past where 80% of the box is stuff I won't use, or don't particularly like, but other boxes where I've loved all of it. It's a gamble, really!
