Well, it’s about that time of year: time to start thinking of thoughtful gift ideas for everyone on your list! I’ve shared so many gift guides here on the blog, so this year I wanted to do something different. For 2022, I am focusing on the idea of thoughtful gifts. You know: gifts that are a bit more meaningful, a bit more personalized… and gifts that feel intentional and like you put a lot of thought into them. First up, I wanted to share some really amazing subscription gifts! There are some majorly rad subscription gift ideas, so I hope this first 2022 gift guide gets you inspired.

Thoughtful Gift Idea for Holidays 2022: Subscription Gifts

I personally love the idea of giving a subscription gift for a Christmas present. After all, it’s basically a gift that keeps on giving! Subscription gifts are also great because you can tailor the gift size and frequency to your recipient, often choosing between a few times a year or monthly. Here are some really amazing and thoughtful subscription gift ideas I am loving this year — many are also small businesses, too!

Subscription Gift Idea #1: Candle of the Month

Scent Luxury Candle Subscription

I am a known candle addict, so for the past year I’ve been a subscriber of Scent… and I adore it! Each month, I receive one high quality, luxe candle and usually it’s from a brand that’s entirely new to me.

To get started, your gift’s recipient will complete their scent profile so that Scent knows what they would like to receive. You can select the frequency and that’s it! It’s so much fun getting a fresh new candle in the mail every month.

Monthly Scent Subscription Box from Nest

Another candle subscription box is this one from Nest. They make high quality candles in gorgeous vessels and the scents are always SO lovely. I also love that with this subscription box, you can include a reed diffuser!

Subscription Gift Idea #2: Handmade One-of-a-Kind Pottery

One-of-a-Kind Pottery Subscription from Paper & Clay

Brit McDaniels is a personal friend and also one of my favorite potters, hands down. Her pieces lean toward mid-century modern meets Scandinavian and she literally has the most gorgeous glaze colors. Plus, I love the versatility of all her pieces!

This thoughtful gift idea is a big one and perfect for that special someone on your list who deserves an epic gift.

Subscription Gift Idea #3: Coffee

Bottomless Coffee Subscription

Chances are you know someone who adores coffee, making this subscription gift idea perfect! But what’s especially cool about Bottomless is that the next package ships based on the recipients usage! The first package comes with a special scale that alerts the company when a fresh bag of coffee beans need to be sent. There’s even an espresso-specific option!

Stori Ethically Sourced & Speciality Roasted Coffee

The basis of Stori Coffee is treating the people who are growing, harvesting and roasting coffee beans with integrity. Not only are the beans of incredible quality, Stori offers a more sustainable and ethical option for coffee drinkers… which makes it a wonderful holiday gift for anyone who’s trying to live a more sustainable and ethical life!

Subscription Gift Idea #4: Wine Delivery

Winc Wine Subscription

I’ve been a subscriber of Winc wine delivery for years now and I absolutely love it! There’s something so special IMO about picking my wines for the month and then being able to plan meals around them. I’m also always pleased with the quality of the wines I get from Winc (check out my review here BTW). Plus, they always have cute labels, a plus in my book!

Subscription Gift Idea #5: Vinyl Records Subscription

Sounds Delicious (1-12 album subscriptions)

Looking for the perfect thoughtful gift idea for the music lover in your life? I highly recommend checking out Sounds Delicious, a monthly record subscription that features cover albums from modern day bands. Not only is the cover artwork always so gorgeous, it’s a great way to learn about new musicians that your gift’s recipient hasn’t yet heard of!

Subscription Gift Idea #6: Spice of the Month

The Spice Subscription Builder from Raw Spice Bar

If you know someone who is an avid home cook, this monthly subscription of yummy herbs and spices is an awesome gift! Raw Spice Bar will mail seasonally-appropriate small batch spice blends along with a recipe. I feel like this would make an amazing hostess gift, especially for the friend or family member who always hosts the holidays!

Subscription Gift Idea #7: Houseplant of the Month

Lastly, treat your green thumb friend to a new, established plant every month from BloomsyBox! I also love the idea of a house plant subscription as a gift for anyone who recently bought their first home or moved into a new space.
