You can get a subscription for just about anything nowadays. Beer. Bacon. Even pants.
So, whoever you're buying a prezzie for, you ought to be able to find a suitable subs package here - even if they're an underpants enthusiast.
Jukely (from £25/month)
Buying event tickets sucks. You wake up early, keep hitting the refresh button, only to be offered rubbish seats you need a new mortgage for.
Rejoice! Jukely saves you all the hassle at half the cost, with access to a different show every night in several cities around the world (including London).
New gigs appear daily at 11am: simply sign on, select a show and grab your dancing shoes. Rock up at the venue and your name will already be on the guestlist - perfect for wannabe rock stars.
Beer Hawk (from £24/month)
Bring the pub to your door with a selection of 8, 12 or 15 high-quality, bottled beers every month, two months or quarter.
Choose between dark/light and weak/strong, or roll the dice for a random selection. It’s time to get chuck that case of supermarket lager...
If there’s one thing better than a full wine rack at Chrimbo, it’s knowing that it’ll be kept full for the next year.
As grape gifts go, a sub to Vinoa is a good one: it'll land six specially selected glasses of wine on the doormat every month. Not literally, of course - that would be messy.
Give the tipple a try whilst watching online videos with a virtual sommelier and, if it hits the sweet spot, you can pick up the full-sized flagon for member’s-only prices. How very refreshing.
Bluebird Tea Co. (£7/month)
See past the fact that they call themselves ‘tea mixologists’ and you’ll soon start enjoying the wares that this little bird delivers.
Receive three different loose-leaf brews per month, hand-selected for members. If you're picky, you can even email with your preferences.
From classic breakfast tea to hangover-curing detox varieties, it should be everyone’s cup of tea.
Carnivore Club (£29/month)
What could be better than meat? Meat in the post, that’s what.
A selection of cured meats - such as pancetta, prosciutto, salami and jerky - will arrive monthly in a little box, ready to sate your cravings for flesh. If you’re looking for fresh steak, mind, just go to a butchers.
