As a Portland, Oregon native, every one of my friends is a self-proclaimed foodie. We make weekly trips to local food trucks, cafes, and various authentic “hole in the wall” restaurants. I can’t even remember the last time we ate at a national “Cheesecake Factory” type restaurant franchise. So when my foodie friends’ birthdays come up every month, I think to myself – how can I ‘out-food’ the foodie?
Recently, I found the perfect solution – food subscription boxes! No matter what food obsession your friend has – whether it be junk or uber-healthy-organic – there’s a box for it!
Every month, your food subscription box service will deliver a box full of various related snacks straight to your friend’s door. It’s a gift that keeps on giving, and it takes care of picking food for you.
Here are some fun, popular food subscription box options:
The Blissmo BREAKbox delivers you everyday, “office” food that you can snack on all day – but without the artificial sweeteners and the guilt. Blissmo allows you to send one mini gift box for $12.49, one regular sized gift box for $24.95, or a 3 month gift membership for $69.95! There’s also a “blissmo beauty” option, if your friend would prefer toxin-free beauty products instead of food.
We all know that every group of friends has the one coffee aficionado who only goes to “underground cafes” and scoffs at the sight of a Starbucks logo. Thanks to Mistobox, the coffee snob friend is no longer impossible to shop for. Mistobox delivers the country’s best fresh-roasted coffee, and has flexible gifting options. For $15 a month, you can deliver enough coffee to make about 15 cups, for either 1, 3, 6, or 12 months. For your extra caffeinated friends, you can upgrade your plan by paying $30 a month to give enough coffee to make 30 cups, and you can double the price per month to send coffee twice a month instead of once. So many options – so much coffee!
In a world dominated by Oreos, chips, and soda, finding yummy, healthy snacks is shockingly hard, especially for an affordable price. NatureBox, however, will deliver low-calorie, healthy, nutritionist-approved snacks straight to your door every month, making the process of finding healthy snacks way easier. If you want to give your health-obsessed friend Naturebox, you can choose between 3, 6, and 12 month options. A 3 month subscription will cost $59.97, but if you choose to give for more months, the cost per month goes down!
For your active, fit friends, the KonaKase is a great gift that will deliver 7-8 healthy, energy boosting snacks each month. Think granola bars, but taken to a whole new level. For $15 a month, you can give the KonaKase in 1, 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions. Yum!
Not to be confused with the French beauty box JolieBox, the Juliebox is meant to be given to your classiest, over age 21 friends. Each month, the Julibox will consist of ingredients to make 2 of 2 different types of cocktails (4 total), including spirits and mixers. You can pick out of a 1, 3, 6, and 12 month gift subscription, for $40 a month.
While Love with Food delivers a more random assortment of food every month, the greatest part about this gift is that its more than just a gift for your friend – for every box Love with Food delivers, they also donate a meal to a hungry child. For as low as $10 a month, you can gift someone a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription – and feed a lot of hungry children at the same time. Talk about a heart-warming, feel good gift 🙂
