‘Tis the season for giving gifts, but it can be a serious challenge to find something for everyone on your list. Luckily we’ve got you covered with a few gifts that keep on giving: subscription services. Paying for subscription boxes or buyer’s club memberships gives you access to major value – the items you get are typically worth way more than the overall cost!

Subscriptions make great gifts because every time the recipient gets another delivery, they’ll be reminded of how good you are at giving presents. Here are some of our favorite subscriptions that will hopefully help you check off the rest of your list for the holidays or just because.

Beauty Pie

Beauty Pie is a buyer’s club for beauty products, the first of its kind. The company offers massive discounts on luxury products to members who pay a monthly or annual rate to access the deals. A one-year membership costs $99 and allows you to buy up to $10,000 of discounted lipstick, fragrances, makeup, skincare products, and more. The deals are significant, too – some products are slashed by as much as 80 percent!

You can also opt for monthly subscriptions. Each month costs $10 and offers discounts up to $100, so two months is $20 and $200, etc. Beauty Pie sources products from around the world, bringing the absolute best quality to your doorstep.
