The concept of a monthly mailing was pioneered by magazines and newspapers. Think about it: a one-time sale for a product is just a one-time sale, but a one-time sale that will send a product or service your way for the next 12 months gets you accustomed to the product and builds brand loyalty.

Businesses benefit because of the consistency of revenue. Consumers find these services convenient and a great way to save time and money. This holiday season, why not give the gift that literally keeps on giving? Here are some of my favorite options to choose from. With such diverse options, you’ll definitely find something for everyone on your list.

Baked by Melissa

This popular cupcake shop brings the famous New York-based treats to your front door through their Mini of the Month Club. At the beginning of the month, they deliver their newest flavor of mini cupcakes right to your door for either three-, six-, or 12-month subscriptions. You can also choose between 25, 50 or 100 cupcake deliveries, the latter being perfect to order for a whole family!

The Purple Carrot

TPC is a customizable meal kit delivery service that provides customers all the raw, pre-measured ingredients they need to cook healthy meals and snacks at home. Featured snacks in the past have included coconut energy bites, no-bake granola, and chocolate bark. TPC differs from similar services because they do not include any dairy, meat, poultry, or eggs in their recipes. These plant-based recipes are curated by celebrity chefs and take as little as 20 minutes to prepare.

Scrumptious Pantry

Called the Heirloom Club, this three- or six-month subscription offers the company’s seasonal food products delivered to your doorstep with more information about the product and the farmers that grow the ingredients. You’ll also get a recipe that focuses on the product as an integral ingredient. For example, the Heirloom Hot Sauces package showcases rare heirloom peppers that are wild-foraged in Indiana.

Bacon of the Month Club

Pretty sure the name says it all. Who doesn’t love bacon? A Bacon of the Month club subscription includes delivery of two packages of thick-cut bacon every month. With over 35 varieties of bacon, your gift recipient won’t ever be bored by the selection. All the bacon is nitrate-free, gluten-free, and pepper-free.

Saffron and Kumquats

This box offers five samples of a mix of spices, grains, beans, and nuts, and five recipes with which to use those ingredients. They’re usually unique and something the home cook might not have in their pantry. Subscriptions to Saffron and Kumquats are available in vegetarian versions as well as non-vegetarian, and every month focuses on a different global cuisine, such as Persian, Mexican, or Indian.

Home Chef

This no-frills service caters to every individual dietary preference including gluten-free, paleo, vegan, and any allergies you have. Ingredients are fresh and locally sourced with easy-to-follow, step-by-step recipes. Just in time for the holidays, Home Chef is introducing a Build Your Own Holiday Meal Kit, where you can choose from à la carte main dishes and sides, customizable to any party size and dietary need. With such diverse options, you’ll definitely find something for everyone on your list.

Plated

This meal kit subscription service delivers fresh ingredients and chef-designed recipes for a home-cooked meal from scratch. Plated just announced its “Food with Thought” pledge, an industry first for ingredient standards. Plated now guarantees no antibiotics or added hormones in all of its meats and 100-percent domestic, sustainably sourced seafood. So if your friend is a stickler for whole foods, consider this option.

NatureBox

This snack subscription service delivers wholesome snacks to your (or your recipient’s) doorstep every month. NatureBox is a healthy commitment, ideal for those who resolve to eat and snack better in 2015. Recipients select five snacks such from a catalog of over 100 items, or they can choose to be surprised and have the company curate a collection for them.

Handmade Beauty Box

Cook up something different with this DIY beauty concept that gives you the opportunity to use your kitchen for more than just making dinner. Handmade Beauty Box delivers beauty and spa projects monthly, with all-inclusive sets of ingredients and instructions. Upcoming boxes include all-natural lipsticks made with coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and avocado oil. Yum!

The Lobster Place

Their Fish of the Month Club offers access to a unique selection of finfish. Each month, you (or your giftees!) get to hand-pick five varieties of finfish (at one pound each) from a list of those that are extremely fresh and in-season. Each pound of fish is individually vacuum-sealed and comes with cooking tips and finish information.

Prices & deals listed are subject to change by retailers and may be subject to availability + restrictions.


The Obvious Choice

Gift cards are always an option. No, they're not the most novel idea, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Choose a store your recipient likes, and an e-gift card can be delivered by email within minutes. Saving money on gift cards can be tricky, but Raise offers up some discounts. You can also use an app like Givingli to package the gift in a way that's more personal than forwarding someone a redeemable code.

Another site, GiftNow, lets you pick a gift, which the recipient then customizes or confirms before it ships. They can pick out sizes or exchange the gift for something entirely different. It's a good solution if you have no idea what to get. And let's be honest—you probably don't have any idea, considering how long you waited and all.

Cloth & Paper

For the office supply aficionado in your life, Cloth & Paper is a subscription service that delivers a monthly box full of interesting writing implements, stationery, and planners. Careful curation, elegant designs, and memorable presentation are all hallmarks of this luxe little monthly delivery—and if you just want to send the pens or the stationery/planners, separate options are available at a lower cost.

Martha & Marley Spoon Meal Kit

Our senior editor Maggie Hoffman recommends the sommelier-curated Grand Tour to anyone looking for a wine education. “They have loads of information and will introduce you to wines that you may have never tried before,” she says. A monthly subscription provides four bottles, (usually two whites and two reds) as well as insights into the producers, tasting notes, and pairing suggestions.

What you’ll get: Four bottles a month for one, three, or six months total.


7. The Adults & Crafts Crate comes with everything you need to create trendy craft projects, all without the hassle of going to the store. Maybe, just maybe, you'll finish these cute DIYs.

What you'll get: Every month you'll receive a new project and all the materials and instructions you need to complete your craft. TLDR: It's a great way to make small things without having to buy a 1,000 things you'll never use again.

Promising review: "I love my subscription to Adults & Crafts! It feels like Christmas every month when I receive my box of craft supplies! It’s so exciting to open it and see what the craft of the month will be. I love that each box teaches me new crafting skills and gives me ideas for homemade gifts for family and friends. So much fun in a box each month!" —Brenda T.

Harry's starts you off with a $5 (for now) starter shave kit with a shave handle in the color of your choice. You can then get a refill with eight blades ($15), eight blades and foaming shave gel ($21), or 16 blades and two shave gels ($35). You tell Harry's how often you shave per week, which will determine how often it ships your refills. There are lots of gift box options available.

Don't forget about ShaveMob. It's all about shaving, and shaving alone no extras here. It caters not just to men, but also sells lady-targeting razor blades for as low as $1 per cartridge (with three blades), same as the men's. The high-end replacements, with six blades on a cartridge, are priced around $1.42 each.


The Fire Dept. Coffee difference: it's run by retired and active fire fighters and supports some in need via the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation, which gives 10% to help first responders. A coffee of the month starts at $15.99 for 12 ounces of whole beans or ground, and you can set how often the interval of months is between new deliveries.

If you're a coffee person, there are plenty of subscription options. With MistoBox, a 12 ounce bag (24 cups) is $10.95 plus shipping. Take the quiz up front to specify the roast level you like, if you take decaf, types you favor (espresso, blends), and how often you'd like it, from weekly to every four weeks. Naturally, there are gift options, because buying someone a coffee is the most humane thing humans do.
