The best gifts in life are, of course, the intangible ones – like friendship, or love. The connections and relationships that make the world go around, those are truly the gifts that just keep on giving. But a close second? Bridal subscription boxes. Because they too, keep on giving.
Who doesn’t love opening a package just for them, once a month, chock full of gorgeous, quality products that they probably never would have purchased for themselves?
The next time you’re stressing out over an engagement, shower or wedding gift, or have exhausted all options on the registry and are in need of a last minute-yet-thoughtful gift – consider giving a subscription box gift. They’re sure to love it. (And you, for giving it to them!) Here are some of our favorites!
