From wine and chocolate to snacks and kitchen gadgets, here are the best subscription boxes to give to a foodie friend—or treat yourself, because you deserve it.
Can’t get enough chocolate? Or know someone that can’t? First mix up these decadent desserts, then treat them to Chococurb, a subscription box that delivers five to seven gourmet chocolate bars to your door each month—we’re talking classics like sea salt caramels to unusual (but delicious) lavender truffles. You can even personalize this box to suit your preferences—especially handy for milk chocolate or dark chocolate devotees.
Price: Starts at $20 per month.
Channel your inner sommelier with Vine Box. After filling out a preference quiz, you’ll get three to six different wines in test tube-like vials to try every month. Each wine includes tasting notes, recommendations and pairings. Review the wine, and Vine Box will recommend full-size bottles for you to purchase.
For Spicy Home Cooks
Looking to spice up your cooking? Try Raw Spice Bar, a subscription box that sends you freshly ground spices and blends every quarter–enough to cook two meals per week for four people. From ancho chili powder to pumpkin pie spice, Raw Spice Bar offers a vast array of spices that pack a punch. (Check out ways to use your pumpkin pie spice.)
For the Must-Have-Coffee Crowd
Victory Coffees subscription box allows you to jump-start your day without ever worrying about running out of coffee again. This Shark Tank-famous brand ships your preferred roast to your door each month based on your coffee habits. They customize your box according to your preferred roast, the number of cups you drink per day and your brewing method—K-Cups included!
Price: Monthly boxes start at $30.
For Global Palates
Travel the world without leaving your home with the Try the World subscription box. Each month, you get a curated selection of ingredients to cook with, drinks and snacks from a different country. Or choose the monthly box of snacks sourced from around the world. Both options come with a guide to tell the story behind each product.
For Taste of Home Devotees
Infuse a little fun into your kitchen with the Taste of Home Special Delivery box. These are true surprise boxes that include an assortment of cool items, like mystery gifts curated by our Test Kitchen experts, home goods, recipe cards, cookbooks or kitchen gadgets. Each box is designed to help you fall in love with new brands, foods and recipes.
We all love a great classic cocktail, but once you’ve perfected the basics, chances are you’ll want to level up and try something new. Enter Shaker & Spoon. This subscription box delivers everything you need to make new and inventive drinks—minus the liquor. Each box requires just one type of tipple, so grab your favorite brand and get mixing! This is just the gift you need to shake up your cocktail game and impress all your guests at your next party.
For Farm-to-Table Fans
Get the farmer’s market delivered to you with the Farm to People subscription box. Choose from omnivore, vegetarian, paleo or vegan options to get sustainably grown local ingredients weekly to your door. With this box, you’ll feel good knowing that each ingredient is traceable back to its farm or producer.
Price: Boxes start at $60 per week.
For Adventurous Snackers
If you’re looking to change up your snacking routine, you’re going to want to opt for the Treats box. Every month, you can enjoy a selection of snacks from a different country. Every month you’ll enjoy some sweet and salty options, plus you’ll get an authentic recipe from that month’s featured country along with some fun facts—great for curious kids!
For Meat Eaters
For all you meat eaters out there, this one’s for you. Each month, Carnivore Club sends you four to six cured meats in a faux-wood box, and each month is themed around a particular type of meat, like Italian salumi (yep, that’s the spelling) or Spanish chorizo. Whether you buy a box as a gift or enjoy it yourself, it will take the charcuterie board to the next level. (Think you know how to pronounce charcuterie? Think again.)
For Disney Fanatics (and Snackers)
Disney devotees know that Disney Parks have some of the best snacks out there. Boxney captures some of that magic by shipping Disney-exclusive snacks to your door on-demand. While you won’t get a drool-worthy Dole whip, you’ll walk away with plenty of Mickey-approved snacks from popcorn to cookies to all kinds of candy.
