I have been trying to find a creative gift option for family members this year.
During my search I stumbled upon subscription boxes. I had never thought of this as a Christmas gift, but now I think it is genius! Why give someone one gift at Christmas when you could get them something that keeps on giving throughout the year.
There are so many different subscription programs that I did not know existed. I am pretty sure there are limitless options out there. These were the ones that stood out to me. There is bound to be one for someone on your list!
