The Best Birthday Gift Boxes That Keep the Celebration Going

Updated by Timothy Paradis

Birthdays are meant to be celebrated! Whether you gather loved ones for cake and ice cream, throw a deluxe birthday bash, or kick back with a face mask and a wellness loose-leaf tea blend, how you celebrate is all about personal style. The only potential downside to birthdays -- finding that perfect gift for the special birthday person. Luckily, we've put together a useful gift guide that's filled with the best gift ideas for everyone on your list.

Your home decor obsessed MIL? Get fresh flower bouquets and stylist selected home goods sent to her doorstep every three months. Your skincare loving niece? You'll find some of the best subscription boxes filled with luxe beauty products and Korean sheet masks. Your dad who has it all? Treat him to a beginners bartender box (complete with mixers and garnishes) or a best-selling book subscription. From the first trip around the sun to the fiftieth (and beyond), small businesses curate monthly subscription boxes and quarterly subscriptions that are packed with great gifts and birthday goodies for all!

Subscription services are a great option for everyone in the family, your nearest and dearest friends, and also for those you are still getting to know. When your coworker or boss is celebrating a birthday, themed boxes are an easy way to wish them a good one. Treat them to everything from rosé-filled wine subscriptions and book-of-the-month clubs to game night boxes and high-quality small-batch coffee that's produced by independent roasters the world over.

And, let's not forget how monthly delivery services can act as a stand-in birthday treat for the lucky guy, gal or kiddo. With plenty of sweet-tooth satisfying subscriptions (think candy clubs, delicious gluten-free cookie kits, or even a curated selection of Japanese sweets), you can help just about anyone celebrate their special day in a fun way!
