If you're still racking your brain on the perfect gift--get your act together Christmas is next week. If you fret about the shipping options, and if whatever you're shipping will get there on time, (we've all been screwed by UPS) maybe it's best to buy a monthly subscription. This way, during normal mail volume times of the year, it'll get there on time and it seems like you give the gift that keeps on giving.
First there's Chicago-based KLUTCHclub for health nuts, then there's BirchBox for beauty buffs. For the guys, there's BirchBox for Men, but if the guys are stuck on their personal care regimen, just stick to the socks with Sock of the Month Club. For the girls and the guys, (and the girly guys) we love Threadless for their t-shirt of the month club. If exquisite local edibles are your dig, Intelligentsia has an epic Roaster's Choice Premiere subscription for $235 and since Mars Cheese Castle, doesn't do a Cheese of the Month Club, we look to Wisconsin Made, which specializes in anything and everything Wisconsin.
