Last minute V-Day Gifts: The Best Subscription Gift Boxes!

For all you last-minute shoppers this Valentine’s Day, Artfully is swooping in to your rescue with the perfect last-minute gift: curated and subscription gift boxes! Anyone looking to find a special gift that feels thoughtful and unique to their special someone, look no further. Not only are there so many subscription boxes to choose from, who wouldn’t love getting a selection of pretty and useful beauty, fitness or style items delivered to their door on a regular basis? And you can buy a single curated box with a hand-picked selection of goodies that literally takes all the legwork out of shopping. 


    From what I found there is curated gift box for all types these days. You may have heard of popular boxes like Birchbox and Ipsy for beauty lovers, Naturebox for healthy snacks, and FabFitFun for the girl who loves a bit of everything from fitness to beauty and more. Well, here I’m sharing a few of my favorites that I know will make the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts. Artfully is all about bringing you creative, curated and elevated content after all. I know you’re just going to love these.


    Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style and BoxFox are two absolute favorites and Gyftia Co. and Pumeli are two more lovely brands I discovered on Instagram. I’ve been a Box of Style member since last June which was a Birthday gift to myself and I couldn’t be happier with the gorgeous curated items I receive each season. What’s so special about Box of Style is you receive at least 5 full-size items hand-picked by Rachel Zoe and her team at The Zoe Report ranging from clothing, jewelry, beauty and housewares valuing over $400. Not only it is luxurious gift to yourself or a loved one but it’s a thoughtful one as the items feel hand-picked and truly special.  Each package is so full of chic that you’ll feel you’ve gone out and had a little shopping spree for $99.99/quarter. I am pleased to offer my Artfully reader's $15 off your first box with a quarterly subscription with code ARTFULLY15 or you can use code BOS20 to save $20 off a yearly subscription here. You often get a new outfit or beauty look out of one box. Some of my favorite past items have included a Helena Quinn Kimono, a Sole Society Hat straw pom-pom hat and a faux fur stole by Unreal from the holiday box.  I’ve also discovered new products like Osea organic face oil, Skinesque beauty face masks and Nudestix lip color stick to name a few.   


    Another favorite and dare I say obsession is Box Fox. I’m guilty of indulging in this one too as a gift for myself. I simply find myself wanting each and every curated box or to build my own on the regular from their well-appointed shop with products from Voluspa, Tocca, Sugarfina, Compartes and Herbivore to name a few. There’s poetry books, cookbooks, novelty items, housewares and accessories. My selection was The Nighstand shown in this post  that included a beautiful geode I now keep on my nightstand, a Voluspa candle with wooden matches, Tocca hand cream and a sweet book Words from a Wanderer. The Nightstand box is currently sold out but don’t worry there are over 30 other selections with names like Red Hot, and At-the Drive-in which are my top gift picks for the guy on your list and Roses are Red and Under the Stars make the most romantic Valentine’s Day Gifts for her. 


    Two more insta-worthy gifting brands that allow you to style your own box or choose from their curated selections are Gyftia Co.and Pumeli. Gyftia Co. boasts artfully (wink) curated gifts so you can see my immediate affinity for them. Their service truly takes the guesswork and stress out of gift-giving and offerings include seasonal, wedding gifts and more including perhaps my favorite collections filed under relaxation. Pumeli’s current V-day shop features selections ranging from $36-$125. Of course you can always set your own price by building your own. 


    And who can forget flowers on Valentine’s Day? And, um, please pass the wine. Bouqs Co. delivers farm-fresh flowers to your door once or four times a year as a gift or just to you know keep your own house stocked with the most beautiful bouquets. Winc sends you or your lucky someone four wines per month either selected for you based on your taste they discern by questionnaire or by you and you can skip a month any time. And if you prefer to do the perusing and picking all on your own there’s more to choose from  in my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide here. Gifts for her, for him, for you. That’s all, Valentine’s Day gifts solved.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
