    1. Quirky-Crate, for your unapologetically quirky friend who could use another dozen pineapple things.

    2. Book of the Month, for the literary-minded person who prefers a good ol' fashioned hardcover book in their hand to a Kindle.

    3. Or Coffee and a Classic, if that literary person wouldn't dare launch into a book without a cup of coffee at their side.

    4. Atlas Coffee Club, to go all in on the coffee thing and give them a taste of some fresh exotic beans.

    5. Hiker Crate, the perfect box for the friend who is seemingly always off the grid.

    6. Wine of the Month Club, if you'd love to pick out a fine wine for your friend at the local corner shop but have no idea where to start.

    7. Or, Craft Beer Club, if collector beer is more of their forte.

    8. Scribbler, a subscription box for writers — because the greatest gift you can give them is the sweet release from Writer's Block Prison.

    9. Home Made Luxe, a box that contains a bunch of creative supplies to ignite their DIY fire.

    11. Zine-o-Matic, an edgy collection of under-the-radar magazines that they definitely won't be able to say they've already been gifted.

    13. Original Vinyl Records, a box that'll save you the headache of sifting through dusty bins for the *perfect* gift.

    14. Pug Box, because you've probably learned by now: A gift for a pug is a gift for its owner, too.

    15. The KitTea Kit, for the purrson (did I do this right?) in your life who could always use a few more cat accessories.

    16. Norse Box, a wonderfully curated box of objects showcasing the best of Scandinavian minimalism that your design-y friend will look forward to opening every four months.

    17. A Dylan's Candy Bar Box, if the way to their heart is through their sweet tooth.

    18. Scentbird, the fragrance sampler box that'll make a perfect gift — just as long as you make it clear to the recipient that there is no subtext.
