7 Subscription Boxes For Interiors Geeks

interiors subscription boxDo you have a friend who is always dragging you around the homeware stores “just to have a look”?

Well, I’m afraid I’m one of those – GUILTY AS CHARGED.

And I know how hard we can be to buy for, not just at Christmas, but all year around. However, I’ve done a bit of shopping around and decided that there is plenty out there for any budget and even any deadline. Yes even this close to Christmas if you’re reading only a week before the big day.

Y’see subscriptions boxes are the perfect last minute Christmas pressie for someone like me. The past few years it’s mostly been an industry saturated by beauty products which, until they make a cruelty-free one, isn’t going to float my boat.

This year, after a bit of digging, I’m starting to see more and more niches establish their own subscription services each month – with a buttload of choices for those who love homewares, interiors or for those who just need a creative outlet.

Personally for me, it’s also a great present all year round, because who doesn’t love a bit of post now and then that ISN’T a boring old bit of spammy nonsense?

So read on to find out my top picks. I’ve included their package costs (most of which can be gifted) and where to get them. 

(BTW none of them I’ve trialled myself so please do let me know in the comments what you think if you’re already a subber so I know which ones to try first!)

What is it?

Not Another Bill is another ‘surprise’ subscription package. You don’t know exactly what you’re going to get but you get to elect your interests up front. The fact that homewares is one of the choices makes me think it would be a fab one for interiors geeks, and it’d be a great way to discover new artists, brands or designers.

How much does it cost?

1 Month – £24 | 3 Months – £69 | 6 Months – £129 | 12 Months = £229

Many will already know about this brand because of their ingenious idea to send bouquets in a way that will fit through your letterbox. UH-MAZING. Now they’ve joined the subscription brigade with a monthly bouquet of flowers. You pick the flowers you want and then they get sent to you on a regular basis. Easy! You can even get them sent weekly or fortnightly if you’re a hardcore flower fanatic, and they also do a mini letterbox option. They’ve thought of everything.

Crafty Creatives

What is it?

Self-professed as the subscription for creative people, Craft Creatives offer three types of subscription; One for jewellery making, another for makers and crafters, and then there’s the #PAPERHAUL which is ”for the stationery addict”. Offering postcards, notecards, wrapping papers, washi tapes and fun stickers, it’s definitely a good pressie for someone who never likes their home office to look empty or boring. Each month the box of goodies are co-ordinated and often featuring up and coming illustrators to help support lesser known names which is a nice touch.

How much does it cost?

1 Month – £10 + P&P depending on location. This subscription continues until cancelled on a monthly basis.

The Melt Crowd

Flamingo Candles subscription box

What is it?

We couldn’t very well have an interiors based subscription list without candles now could we? Sent by Flamingo Candles, who are UK-based and use natural soy wax, the Melt Crowd subscription contains 8 scent melts, and if you don’t have a wax burner, they send one for free with your first subscription.  Each month you get new scents with many new collection previews and the boxes fit through your letterbox so no trips to the post office if you miss delivery. Winner.

How much does it cost?

1 Month – £10.
You can select how many months you’d like to subscribe for at the checkout, which I think is a nice touch.

A vintage book subscription box –  I really love this idea! Whether you want some special coffee table books or just want something a little less polished for your home shelfie, I bet you’d get a kick out of seeing some of your favourite reads in one of their original formats. You choose your genre, and then receive a vintage paperback (which is picked by hand to match your preferences), a handmade book bag as well as other related surprises.

How much does it cost?

1 Month – £15 | 3 Months – £45 | 6 Months – £90 | 12 Months – £180
