Last Minute Bookish Gift Ideas: Box Subscriptions!

When it comes to gift-giving, one of my favorite things to give people are box subscriptions (some of my friends are probably reading this and nodding their heads vigorously). I do this because I find subscriptions to be so much fun. If you’re still trying to figure out what to get your friends and family for the holidays, consider getting them a subscription to a box you’ll think they’d like! Then all you have to do is write what you got for them down in a card, hand that to them, and voila! Done! Here’s a list of some of the more popular book subscription boxes with their respective prices (and discount codes where applicable!).

I’ll be listing bookish box subscriptions here, but if you’re looking for non-bookish boxes or for even more bookish ideas, consider browsing CrateJoy!
