Everyone loves flowers right?! Mud flowers are based in Glasgow and deliver the perfect boxed bouquets, from little to luxe you can pick something that fits into your price range. Starting from only £19. The Subscription Bouquets are also delivered monthly, bi-weekly or weekly, so you have a choice of how often you want them to arrive! The first box arrives with a vase so your lucky loved one has something to put their beautiful bouquets in. Unfortunately, this box is limited to Glasgow.

Lucky Dip Club

Have a friend that collects pins? Or one who’s obsessed with colourful socks? Then the Lucky Dip Club is exactly what you are looking for! You can pick the pin subscription or the sock subscription OR you can get one that gives both. For that extra special someone. The boxes start at £6 per month and come with a copy of the Girl Planet Zine. With boxes that are as pretty as their content, you are sure to put a smile on that special someone’s face every single month.

The Vegan Kind Beauty

Run by the same company as the lifestyle box, the Beauty Box is a must-have for anyone obsessed with beauty. Containing up to 6 items the box is a great mix of vegan skincare and makeup. A lot of the products are organic and from independent brands, making each box an exploration of new beauty brands. I’ve found loads of brands I love through the boxes! This box is delivered quarterly and is partnered with a charity, so as well as giving an amazing gift, you are also giving to charity.

Not much beats a good book and a cup of tea. And this subscription box brings you both! Each month is a new vintage paperback with book themed stationery and a pack of four luxury teabags. This is the perfect box for the book lover in your life! Not only do they get a vintage book every month, you also get a new tea to try, it’s the perfect excuse for a relaxing afternoon & at only £12 a month it definitely is a bargain.

Glittery Hands

How about giving a box full of creativity? The Glittery Hands box was created by a crafter for crafters! Each month the box contains 10 crafting items, plus a colouring sheet. Each month has a different theme and that can range from glitter to mermaids, sounds good right? You can buy them a years subscription or grab them 6 months worth of boxes up front.

The Wee Box

Got a friend who’s obsessed with everything Scottish? Or a Scottish friend living abroad who gets homesick? Then I’ve got the perfect box for you! Featuring items from iconic Scottish Designers, Independent designers and heritage brands the box promises to be much more than ‘tartan and bagpipes’. All the goodies in the box come wrapped in a Scottish Newspaper so you can get a little look at the headlines back home. The Wee Box also partners with Save the Children to help combat poverty in Scotland.

Abandon Ship Apparel

This box is probably the best value for money, for £25 per month you get a t-shirt and a bunch of accessories that are exclusive to the box. Each month has a different theme and the company regularly works with different charities to create one-off items and donate money. As the box sells out every month you can only join from the 20th until the 3rd of each month. Remember to set a reminder in your calendar. This box is perfect for the indie design lover!
