Life as we know it has changed significantly and I have a feeling it will take some time before life returns to any sort of normality. Simply nipping to the shop to pick up groceries requires careful planning and people dodging due to social distancing. As for girlie days out shopping for clothes and treats? They certainly won’t be happening for a while! If you are looking for something to fill the void, look no further than Subscription Boxes!
There is no denying that treat mail can certainly raise spirits, especially during lockdown. With a vast range of subscription boxes available online to delight all ages, who wouldn’t like a surprise treat delivered on a monthly basis?
We have put a few subscription boxes to the test recently, let’s check out some of our favourites…
Our Favourite Subscription Boxes For Lockdown Treats
Batch Coffee Bi-Monthly Subscription Box – £17
Coffee certainly keeps me fuelled, especially when following the Keto lifestyle. I find a mug of strong black coffee is a great way to start the day during lockdown life and enables me to crack on with work and homeschooling. I tend to stick to my favourite brands of coffee simply because I know what to expect, a creature of habit in that respect. Though it is refreshing to try new brands and strains of coffee for a whole new experience. Let me introduce you to Batch Coffee…
A delightful way for coffee connoisseurs to experience new blends and flavours in a neat bi-monthly subscription box featuring two 200g coffee pouches. The Batch Coffee experts test coffees from roasteries in the UK and Ireland and select the very best beans to surprise you with every fortnight. Sign up to the newsletter and receive 20% off your first order!
Simply choose which coffee grind you would prefer from a range including ground, whole bean, pour over and simply relax and wait for your fortnightly delivery. Pack details cover Coffee Name, Roaster, Origin and Process… all the details I take for granted when I spoon instant coffee into my mug and wait for the kettle to boil! This is a real treat for coffee lovers, especially those that miss a regular trip to coffee shops. Want to know more about the origins of the coffee selected and what the Batch Experts think? The site features fantastic guides offering more indepth information and is well worth a look!
Liv’s Favourite Subscription Box
Teen Calm Monthly Subscription Box – £25 plus postage
Designed by a mother and daughter team, the Team Calm box is filled with delightful goodies for tween and teenage aged children as a monthly giftbox with a difference. Lockdown is such a confusing time for anyone, but children maybe particularly anxious about what the future will hold and when they will return to some normality with school… and seeing their friends.
Aimed at older children, the monthly subscription box is filled with items that will boost spirits and help children clock off from the craziness of the current situation. I will be featuring a giveaway, with further information about the Teen Calm Box over the weekend!
Subcription Box For Mother & Daughter Treats
GlossyBox Monthly Subscription Box – from £8.50 plus £3.25 delivery per month.
You do have to wait until the follow month for your GlossyBox when placing your first order, but the wait is definitely worth it! Who would say no to a treat box filled with 5 surprise make-up and beauty products? Contained in funky designed boxes that can be utilised as cute little storage boxes or make up storage. It’s a great idea for a gift or if you simply want a monthly ‘pick me up’, you don’t know what products you will receive until you open the box, giving you the opportunity to try products you may not even be aware of. You can easily unsubscribe at any time or take a break from the monthly boxes.
Health Products Treat Box
The Immune Support Box – £39.99
The limited edition box is something quite special, not just for the products featured from a range of upcoming health brands, but for the reasoning behind the box. Featuring lots of immune boosting supplemements such as Vitamin C and D capsules, perfect for lockdown, each box purchased adds a £5 donation to the Compassion London fund. Check out our recent post for further details of what to expect from the box AND enter the giveaway for your chance to win an Immune Support Box.
