There’s a subscription for basically EVERYTHING these days – whether you’re into beauty or bacon, socks or shaving. But stepping away from the ordinary and everyday, what about luxury subscription boxes? These subscription services really feel like a treat, something a little bit special – and they also make perfect gifts. We’ve scoured the internets to bring you the best luxury subscription boxes…


There are SO MANY beauty subscriptions out there – but this one is the real deal.

Sipping Liquor

When it comes to luxury subscription boxes, there are more gin boxes out there than you might imagine, and honestly, we think that the day when we reach Peak Gin is fast approaching. Yeah, we said it – GIN IS OVER. Extend your horizons people, and consider that there might just be spirits out there that aren’t gin or vodka – that you might enjoy discovering! This is where Sipping Liquor comes in. A subscription gives you access to a monthly delivery of one bottle of booze, as selected by Sipping Liquor’s in-house experts – think whisky, rum, brandy and occasionally grappa or mezcal to switch things up. The plan here is to actually taste the alcohol you’re drinking – sipping it – rather than diluting it with mixers, but you can easily shake up a few cocktails too! Each box is supplied with information on that month’s bottle – so you’ll be an expert before you know. Buy Sipping Liquor online here.

Seven Seventeen

We absolutely LOVE what Seven Seventeen do. Luxury candles, by subscription, delivering one beautiful scented jar candle each month. Think of it as a little parcel of calm – whether you’re buying this for yourself or for someone who deserves a treat. With each candle providing 30-40 hours of burn time, that’s one hour each day of enjoying a delicious scent filling your home. Perhaps with a good book or a glass of wine? The company also donates to the PANDAS Foundation, which helps with pre and postnatal  depression, with the purchase of every candle. The scent you’ll receive each month remains a surprise, but with candles including White Jasmine, Moroccan Rose and Black Pomegranate, you’re unlikely to be disappointed. Pure, unadulterated bliss.
