Here are some monthly subscriptions your loved ones might actually like

Finally, some subscriptions that are worth paying for.

Choosing the perfect gift for a friend or family member can be difficult. Year after year, we give our relatives gifts, but what do they end up doing with them? Enjoying them or stashing them away in the attic (or regifting them)? It is the thought that counts, but wouldn’t it be nice to give your loved ones something they’ll actually use for once?

If you've got a wine or spirits enthusiast in your life, here are a couple of ideas for splendid gifts that they'll most likely be delighted with.[realted]

Glassful

Glassful is the perfect gift for wine-lovers everywhere. With this subscription, you get three bottles of wine a month (for $54 a month). These bottles aren’t selected randomly: they’re chosen based on each recipient's personal taste, determined after they take a quiz on the company website.

Red more about Glassful here.

Bitters + Bottles

Whether your friends and family are looking to save money, host a party, or become mixologists overnight, Bitters + Bottles will fill the bill. For $85 a month, recipients receive alcohol, garnishes, bitters, mixers, among other accessories needed to cocktail on a budget. It also includes step-by-step instructions on how to create a cocktail that tastes like it came straight from the bar. It’s basically a bar in a box…what more could you need?

The 15 Best Alcohol Subscription Boxes for Trying New Things&mdashAnd Stocking Up on Old Favorites

Explore distilleries, wineries, and breweries (many of them independently owned) all through a cardboard box.

There was once a plethora of ways to get alcohol. And we don't use a (maybe-a-little-pretentious) word like "plethora" lightly. There were liquor stores. Grocery stores. Drive-through liquor stores that also sold groceries. Gifts from your boss, gifts because you were the boss, gifts among family, and gifts among friends. There were restaurants and bars, and bars at restaurants. But the alcohol landscape was abruptly disrupted when we plunged into international crisis, and we learned other ways to get a drink. Even as we emerge into a brighter, more vaccinated summer, the hermit-like habits we acquired might stick with us. One entails getting bottles of alcohol delivered to our front doors, whether from neighborhood stores or online liquor shops. Another is what you're looking at right now: alcohol subscription boxes.

For those of you who jumped on board when the subscription box craze took off, you won't be shocked to learn that those boxes can come bearing a selection of spirits, wine, and beer, too. It's only smart to sign up for one in addition to the sock subscription, the meal subscription, and the shaving supply subscription you already have coming to your front door. A subscription box can be a more reliable means of stocking up on whatever you want than your usual method, and you're guaranteed a specially curated drinking experience, oftentimes with membership exclusives.

Speaking of curation, the following alcohol subscription boxes cover vast territory, offering premium bottles to fit many preferences, be they vague or idiosyncratic or basic. So decide what you want&mdashhard liquor, wine, or craft beer&mdashand sign up for one of the following. For those who can't keep their home bars stocked with syrups, liqueurs, and garnishes for the life of them, we have three cocktail-making subscription box options, too. Go to a bar when it's safe, but drink with style at home when it's not.

Flaviar's model is simple: It sends you samples of rare, unsung spirits, in addition to one full bottle, per quarter. If you enjoy what you try, you can purchase bottles. It's a tool for spirit discovery as much as it is a tool for drinking, and it's for this reason that Flaviar can get away with saying it models itself after a speakeasy. If you can find the speakeasy&mdasha.k.a. get a subscription&mdashthen you're rewarded with an exclusive drinking experience.

From $69 per month, mashandgrape.com

The 15 Best Alcohol Subscription Boxes for Trying New Things&mdashAnd Stocking Up on Old Favorites

Explore distilleries, wineries, and breweries (many of them independently owned) all through a cardboard box.

There was once a plethora of ways to get alcohol. And we don't use a (maybe-a-little-pretentious) word like "plethora" lightly. There were liquor stores. Grocery stores. Drive-through liquor stores that also sold groceries. Gifts from your boss, gifts because you were the boss, gifts among family, and gifts among friends. There were restaurants and bars, and bars at restaurants. But the alcohol landscape was abruptly disrupted when we plunged into international crisis, and we learned other ways to get a drink. Even as we emerge into a brighter, more vaccinated summer, the hermit-like habits we acquired might stick with us. One entails getting bottles of alcohol delivered to our front doors, whether from neighborhood stores or online liquor shops. Another is what you're looking at right now: alcohol subscription boxes.

For those of you who jumped on board when the subscription box craze took off, you won't be shocked to learn that those boxes can come bearing a selection of spirits, wine, and beer, too. It's only smart to sign up for one in addition to the sock subscription, the meal subscription, and the shaving supply subscription you already have coming to your front door. A subscription box can be a more reliable means of stocking up on whatever you want than your usual method, and you're guaranteed a specially curated drinking experience, oftentimes with membership exclusives.

Speaking of curation, the following alcohol subscription boxes cover vast territory, offering premium bottles to fit many preferences, be they vague or idiosyncratic or basic. So decide what you want&mdashhard liquor, wine, or craft beer&mdashand sign up for one of the following. For those who can't keep their home bars stocked with syrups, liqueurs, and garnishes for the life of them, we have three cocktail-making subscription box options, too. Go to a bar when it's safe, but drink with style at home when it's not.

The 15 Best Alcohol Subscription Boxes for Trying New Things&mdashAnd Stocking Up on Old Favorites

Explore distilleries, wineries, and breweries (many of them independently owned) all through a cardboard box.

There was once a plethora of ways to get alcohol. And we don't use a (maybe-a-little-pretentious) word like "plethora" lightly. There were liquor stores. Grocery stores. Drive-through liquor stores that also sold groceries. Gifts from your boss, gifts because you were the boss, gifts among family, and gifts among friends. There were restaurants and bars, and bars at restaurants. But the alcohol landscape was abruptly disrupted when we plunged into international crisis, and we learned other ways to get a drink. Even as we emerge into a brighter, more vaccinated summer, the hermit-like habits we acquired might stick with us. One entails getting bottles of alcohol delivered to our front doors, whether from neighborhood stores or online liquor shops. Another is what you're looking at right now: alcohol subscription boxes.

For those of you who jumped on board when the subscription box craze took off, you won't be shocked to learn that those boxes can come bearing a selection of spirits, wine, and beer, too. It's only smart to sign up for one in addition to the sock subscription, the meal subscription, and the shaving supply subscription you already have coming to your front door. A subscription box can be a more reliable means of stocking up on whatever you want than your usual method, and you're guaranteed a specially curated drinking experience, oftentimes with membership exclusives.

Speaking of curation, the following alcohol subscription boxes cover vast territory, offering premium bottles to fit many preferences, be they vague or idiosyncratic or basic. So decide what you want&mdashhard liquor, wine, or craft beer&mdashand sign up for one of the following. For those who can't keep their home bars stocked with syrups, liqueurs, and garnishes for the life of them, we have three cocktail-making subscription box options, too. Go to a bar when it's safe, but drink with style at home when it's not.
