This holiday season is certainly one like no other. While it might be more difficult to travel and meet with your loved ones in person, that doesn't mean you have to forego getting them a special gift. Subscription boxes make a great option this Christmas because they arrive right to the doorstep of your favorite person. And, with different subscription lengths available, they keep on giving, month after month.

For instance, if you have someone in your life who loves their caffeine kick in the morning, why not try a coffee subscription? Trade Coffee provides different quantities of coffee at intervals selected by the recipient, and each bag is picked from top roasters based on their tastes. Or, maybe you have a literature lover who is always on the lookout for a good book? Call Number is a librarian-curated quarterly literary box that highlights contemporary Black literature and authors. And besides a book, each box comes with three to four library-themed items.

If you are looking to give someone a bit of pampering, Modern Skyn Apothecary includes five to eight handcrafted skincare items in their bi-monthly box. Or, if you know a man that loves his beard, the veteran-owned Beard Care Club will keep his hair silky smooth and smelling nice.

Some of the best subscription boxes around have great gifting options so that all you need to do is enter your loved one's address and email. The rest is set! The recipient will receive an email notifying them of their gift, as well as asking them about their preferences, if it's relevant to the box you've selected. Just be sure to read the description of when boxes are sent out so that you can order in time for the holidays. Ready to get started? We've got 10 subscription boxes that make the perfect holiday gift for friends and family near and far.
