‘Tis the season of giving, and I’ve got a little secret to share: the best gifts keep on giving! That’s why I’m all about gifting subscription boxes this year. You know, that delightful surprise that pops up at the door every month? So, if you’re scratching your head, trying to nail down the perfect presents for the folks on your list by trying to think outside the box, you might want to think inside the box! I’ve done the legwork and rounded up some of the most fabulous subscription boxes to light up anyone’s holiday season.

Hey, fellow bookworms! You know that rush when you start a new book? Book of the Month gives you the chance to offer a loved one that feeling every. single. month. Hand-picked by people who live and breathe books, it’s like sending a monthly escape to a friend (or hey, to yourself – I won’t judge). It’s like a cozy book club without the obligation. For all my fellow readers out there, this one’s a treat.

Check out Book of the Month and start that literary journey.
