Have you ever been in the situation where you have absolutely no idea what to get someone for a gift?
My Step-Daughter and her boyfriend live in Boise, Idaho. Being over 2000 miles away from us in Western NY, we haven’t had a chance to visit them yet.
Not knowing much about their life makes it hard to pick the perfect Christmas gift for them because, heck – I don’t even know the color of their bathroom!
I was mindlessly searching Amazon.com two weeks before Christmas and an idea came to me. I remembered my parents getting a fruit of the month subscription as a Christmas gift one year from my grandparents. Getting stuff in the mail was super cool back in 1985 and I couldn’t wait to see what was in that box, which came the first week of every month for a year.
I searched the Internet for “Of The Month Subscriptions” and an article published by Real Simple magazine called, “20 Surprising Subscription Box Ideas” caught my eye.
The usual Beer of the Month, Coffee of the Month and Tea of the Month were on their list but we couldn’t afford $35-50 dollars a month for a year and I wanted to get them a subscription that lasted longer than three months.
Then I saw that they included a subscription box idea for a company called Love with Food.
Love with Food is a California based company that sells snacks that are good for you. Every month they send a box that contains 6 to 8 snack samples and the monthly subscriptions start at just $7.99! Woo hoo! AND Love with Food also donates a portion of the proceeds to a local food bank for every month you subscribe. Even better right? Plus they have a gluten-free snack box option and ship worldwide.
I am not in the habit of doing a lot of promoting on my blog but it was so nice to find a gift that can be given and received all year long and at a very reasonable price to boot!
I’ll post this link to Love with Food so you can check it out for yourself. Love with Food
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and here’s to an exciting 2017! -MM
