If you are looking to cheer up yourself or someone you love then read on for fabulous gift box tips and suggestions. I'm a fan of treating myself to a little something special and one of my favourite ways to do this is with a gift box delivered to my door. Even better a subscription box is the gift that keeps on giving and there are so many varieties available. 

What is a gift or subscription box?

Gift boxes are delightful bundles of 'awesomeness' carefully chosen and curated by you or the brand and perfectly wrapped and delivered. I love a gift box for corporate gifts, to send to friends far away or just to let soeone know I am thinking of them. You can often mix and match items to perfectly suit the recipient and your budget and even leave a message that will be handwritten on a card. For peace of mind some businesses will even send you a photo of the finished gift box before they send it.

A subscription box is a fabulous way to sample products that you may be curious about or even be introduced to products you never knew existed. Most subscription boxes will arrive with carefully curated products, some sample sizing and full size products, perfect for travel, gifts or to throw in your handbag.This is an awesome way to try products, if you love them then there is no fear in purchasing, because you know what you are getting. Some boxes can be purchased on a month to month basis or require a different commitment and of course you can also send them as a gift. 

Who are gift or subscription boxes good for?

You! Looking after yourself is important so why not say ‘I love ME’ with a subscription box. They are also a great way to reward yourself for reaching personal or business goals. You deserve it!

If a friend is ill or is undergoing medical treatment and you don’t know how to help send them a gift box for a pick me up.

Sometimes someone does something for you and you want to say ‘Thankyou’ but they don’t want you to make a fuss, so send a box to let you know you appreciate them, perfect for teachers too!

Those Hallmark days, remember Mothers Day is just around the corner!

When a baby arrives the squawky one receives all the attention while sleep deprived Mum does all the hard work, sounds a bit unfair hey. Personally I have always given gifts to the Mumma but with a subscription box your gift will be appreciated month after month and what new Mumma wouldn’t want that to look forward to!



Now this is a business I adore and have used several times. The boxes at Bundle + Twine are beautifully curated, and t with all items nestled carefully they are lovely to look at. Even better they source from small Australian businesses wherever possible. This commitment to the process ensures a stunning gift each and every time.


Join Bellabox and receive a beauty box delivered every month. Unwrap your beauty box filled with 5+ beauty samples and try them in the comfort of your own home. Keep up to date with the hottest beauty trends and learn how to recreate the latest looks. If you love what you have sampled you can buy from their online shop.



Every three months Peony Parcel will deliver to you a carefully curated pamper parcel that includes a selection of 5 to 7 full size and trial size beauty and lifestyle products to help you enjoy some “me” time. Discover beauty and lifestyle products such as beauty and bath products, candles, gourmet treats, stationery and more surprises, handpicked from emerging and premium Australian brands. All the products are beautifully packaged in a Peony Parcel keepsake box, ready to gift to yourself or someone special.


Now this a swoon worthy candle subscription or one off order. I have been using The Luxuriate candles with their genius re-usable and stylish holders for a few years now but have recently signed up to the subscription and will receive refills every few months. Even better you can purchase minis of all the scents to try and when you want to change things up with a different scent then just change your preference in your subscription. The pink or green onyx candle vessels are sooo beautiful they will leave you breathless! These make the perfect gift too and the packaging is sublime.


With an earthy keepsake wooden cart and an array of locally made products when you order online at The Hamper Shed you can choose or create a gift box to delight. I love the collection of blooming cards that you can plant and then watch grow in your garden.

Shopping from the comfort (and safety) of your own home never looked so pretty (and tasty) , have fun!
