Our Top Food & Drink Subscriptions for Spring Gifts

With spring comes a string of holidays and special occasions: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, and new beginnings. And there’s a perfect (edible, drinkable) subscription for everyone on your gift list. 

Maybe it’s the new grad who’s starting their first job and needs coffee to fuel those early mornings. A parent or friend who loves to cook will look forward to deliveries of unique ingredients. Just about everyone appreciates wine and dessert gifts that keep on giving… and giving. 

For spring gifting inspiration, we’ve rounded up one-of-a-kind subscriptions worthy of your favorite people—read on. 

For the coffee nerd… Plenty of specialty roasters offer subscriptions for beans, so you can’t go wrong with a favorite local brand (we like IXV for the Brooklyn-based crowd). For mail-order, try Mural City Coffee Co., which transformed an abandoned building in Dothan, Alabama into a vibrant local hangout, or Stumptown, known for its commitments to direct trade with producers and environmental sustainability.

For the cook… Fact: cooking is more rewarding with better ingredients. Sign them up for a local CSA through Local Harvest for fresh fruits and vegetables from farms nearby (we love Norman’s Farm Market in the Washington, DC area). For carnivores, Cream Co.’s subscription meat boxes offer a variety of 100% natural cuts from sustainable and regenerative ranches. Finally, try Piquant Post for freshly ground spice blends delivered monthly. 

For wine and beer lovers… Membership to a favorite wine or beer club makes a perfect gift for folks who love to kick back and entertain. Look at local wineries and breweries first, or if you’re not sure what they drink, try a customizable delivery service—Wine Access or Somm Select are good picks for wine, and Tavour or Beer Drop for brews. 

For the tea drinker… Give the gift of a favorite tea with monthly subscriptions for chai, Earl Grey, and herbal blends including Detox and Insomnia Relief from The Loose Leaf. For a gift that gives back, try NEMI, an London-based company that employs refugees to help them integrate into broader society. NEMI ships a subscription pack of three surprise teas, four times a year. 

For the chocoholic… Who doesn’t want to be part of a chocolate club? Ritual ships curated boxes full of chocolate bars, chocolate goodies, merch, and pairings. For something truly unexpected, check out the Melbourne, Australia-based Birdsnake, a craft chocolate company that sources (fair trade!) cacao from remote corners of the globe. A bar subscription gets you four bars of your choice each month, or choose a mix of bars and drinking chocolate.

For the mixologist… Help friends and family make next-level cocktails at home with subscription kits that offer everything they need for mixing. Shaker & Spoon’s boxes have ingredients (minus the alcohol) for 12 drinks—think syrups, bitters, mixers, and garnishes. Cheeky sells bar-quality syrups and juices in flavors including ginger, mint, and espresso. 

For the wellness-obsessed… Great gifts don’t have to be all booze and sweets (though we welcome those). Raleigh Raw’s juice subscriptions bring Detox and Cleanse boxes to your door every week. Other companies deliver custom meal plans to the local area to those with keto diets, vegetarian, and everything in between—check out Taylor Made Cuisine in Orange County or Tiffin Box in Vancouver, to name a couple. Lastly, outdoorsy folks will love Field Trip Snacks for a monthly mix of healthy, high-protein snacks to pack on their next hike.

About the author

A second time founder with a passion for building products at the intersection of hospitality and technology. I've had the pleasure of launching reservation systems, mobile payment solutions, and loyalty programs at OpenTable and Resy, and witnessed how operators were losing a direct connection with their customers online. We built Per Diem to strengthen the relationships that businesses have with those customers, and to ensure that local businesses can thrive in today's economy.
