The Christmas Gift that keeps on Giving


Have you left it til the last minute to buy your Christmas presents? Is there that one last person who you can’t find the perfect present for? Whilst dashing round Oxford Street on Christmas Eve can be fun, it can also be a complete nightmare and leave you frazzled rather than feeling festive. So I may be about to solve all your problems…

You might have missed the last date for delivery, but what if you can still order online from the comfort of your Christmas onesie? I was recently sent this amazing tea subscription box from Tea Tourist, you get a box through the post each month containing six unique tea blends. I love the fact that each blend comes with its own instructions and info card to find out more about it. All the blends were completely different but delicious and all December themed – from Marzipan Rooibos teabags to Gingerbread Chai and Winter Spice. They made me feel all festive and warm inside.

It’s the gift that keeps on giving, you can make a little voucher to give on Christmas day and then the recipient can look forward to their deliveries. They could be delivered to the office to give that person a little work pick me up or to anywhere at all. And it’s pretty perfect for all those people who want to make that New Years Resolution to drink more water (I know that’s me!) People get so many presents on Christmas day so I think a little monthly gift is probably more welcome – it’ll keep them going through the dark winter months! The boxes are £14.95 per month but I also have my own unique discount code so you can get 30% off the price of your first box when you start a teatourist subscription. Just enter 100WAYS30 at the checkout. And don’t forget you can cancel your subscription at any time. Let me know if you decide to go for it?

Or if that difficult person you’re buying a gift for doesn’t like tea, there are plenty of other subscriptions out there. What about these instead?

  • A stationary subscription: I love this idea from Katie Leamon, every month you receive a surprise package of seasonal paper goods. It’s £65 for a three month subscription so only just over £20 per box.
  • A men’s accessory subscription: For all those hard to buy for men in your life (I’ve got quite a few!), what about a men’s accessory subscription box? It contains things like ties, bracelets, cufflinks and even wallets! And it’s only £25 per box.
  • A plant subscription: Everyone loves to fill their house with greenery and with this box you get a new plant each month which means no time to kill it like I usually do! Plant Post Club is £70 for three months and you also get plant-related accessories.
