6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas
We've all been there: the many festive pressures of Christmas pile atop one another; seeing friends, planning family events, dealing with the madness of work life during the Noël season – it all gets a bit much, and before you know it you realise a few days before Christmas that you've forgotten to buy a present for the mother in law you suspect has always secretly hated you. Fortunately we're here to help, and to avoid the unadulterated hell of Oxford Street/Westfield during Yuletide, we've focused on gifts that are digital subscription based. You're welcome!
1) The Dram Team
The perfect gift for whisky lovers, The Dram Team's (excellent pun) monthly subscription service can be purchased as a special one off, or as a 3-month, 6-month, 9-month or 12-month gift subscription. Each month, your chosen whisky enthusiast will receive a box with five 25ml miniatures of high-quality whisky as well as one 10ml sample of a super exclusive batch with accompanying tasting notes. Cheers!
2) Lucky Voice Karaoke Subscription
A fab gift for kids and adults alike, a Lucky Voice Karaoke Subscription turns any iOS device, laptop or desktop in to a mobile karaoke bar, with access to over 9000 contemporary and classic anthems, on-screen lyrics and backing music. A subscription won't break the bank either at £6.99/month, and there's a free 14-day trial for your giftee to try before you buy.
For a free trial, head to: luckyvoicekaraoke.com/free-trial
And if you're really looking to take things to the next level, click and collect is still available for Lucky Voice Karaoke Kits (£55-£60) until 5pm on Friday December 21st: shop.luckyvoice.com
3) Craft Gin Club
Who doesn't love gin? Grinches, that's who! A guaranteed brownie-points winner for mother in laws and spouses, you can choose between a monthly, bimonthly or trimonthly subscription that is cancellable anytime and costs £40/box. Each Craft Gin Club box comes with a bottle of premium small-batch gin, as well as mixers, some tasty grazing treats and a copy of Ginned! Magazine.
4) The Cheese Society
Pay homage to the fromage with a monthly subscription to The Cheese Society. Every month the lucky recipient gets five slices of artisan cheese handpicked by The Society's resident expert Kate, with each slice hand cut to 200g and packaged with accompanying tasting notes and info.
5) Bloombox Club
A little more off the wall (via a hanging basket or two) a Bloombox Club subscriber can look forward to a monthly pot plant sent straight to their door with a focus on "rarity, quirkiness or beauty". Subscriptions are either monthly or quarterly, and you can choose whether you want it with a pot (£35) or without (£17). A great gift for a green-fingered aunt or uncle!
6) Perky Blenders
Perky Blenders (again, great pun) is another fantastic subscription that won't break the bank with a monthly 200g delivery of one of their coffee blends costing only £6.50. And if your giftee is a true caffeine addict, you can choose weekly deliveries instead – either way, the East London coffee specialists roast daily, so the coffee they send out is as fresh as humanly possible!
