We love great food subscription gift boxes because hello, monthly treats! But we especially love them right now when the holiday shipping deadline clock is ticking down. The great thing about these services is that, even though they cover us holiday shopping procrastinators, they are hardly an afterthought. These food subscription gift boxes are some of our favorite holiday gifts this year and they don’t even require a December 24th arrival to be appreciated. Phew.

So pick up a pretty card (or have the kids make one) for your favorite foodie and tell them to expect a gift that will keep on giving for months to come. Yum.

Shaker and Spoon cocktail club | Great fFood subscription gift boxes: Cool Mom Eats holiday gift guide

Shaker & Spoon Cocktail Club subscription gift box

This food subscription gift box is perfect for anyone who wishes that they could be a high-end mixologist (or maybe still dreams of being Tom Cruise in Cocktail—you know who they are). Shaker & Spoon is a newcomer on the subscription scene that sends everything you need, from syrups to garnishes, to shake and stir 12 cocktails every month, 4 each of the 3 included recipes. Each recipe is built around the same base liquor, which is the only thing not included in the box. That may sound inconvenient, but it actually makes this service more practical and affordable than many of the other mixology subscription services. Plus, the drinks are just plain tasty since these guys are all about offering up new flavor sensations and empowering members to start making their own tasty combinations. ($40/month or $110 for 3 months, Shaker & Spoon)
