If the person is already a collector or connoisseur, then she will be so grateful to you for helping her explore a hobby of hers. And if you are subscribing him to a membership for something he is not as familiar with yet, then you are doing the great deed of helping to open up his next year to new and exciting possibilities.

They’re also a more affordable way to give someone a luxury experience. For $250 and under, you can gift gourmet food, craft beer and more. Win-win!

We all know Birchbox and Barkbox, but here are ten other great subscription of-the-month club memberships you can give as a luxury gift this year.

The Luxury Gift Guide: The Best of-the-Month Subscriptions

1. Beer

Craft Beer Kings is indeed the king of beer, and they now offer six different monthly subscription box options. Choose between dark and sour beers, stouts and IPAs, and send six or twelve beers delivered monthly, for $55 or $99 a shipment. The beers are carefully selected, supplying the recipient with beers they will love every single month.

2. Cheese

Cheese fanatics all love Murray’s.  Lucky for you, they know how many fans they have, and are currently offering five different club memberships that you can give to friends or family. For $175, give someone three months of artisanal cheeses at their door. These gourmet boxes will hold a rotation of classic, beloved options from Murray’s stock, everything from rind wheels to goat cheese.

If you are giving to a particularly adventurous cheese eater, sign them up for the Cheesemonger Picks of the Month, which will deliver a selection of innovative and inspiring flavors that are maybe a little more outside the box. Murray’s also has a meat and cheese club, a cheese board club, and a perfect pair club. All come with the option to pay month by month, or for three months upfront.

3. Flowers

We all could use a little more greenery in our lives. If you know someone who is a flower fanatic, get them a subscription to Flowers for Dreams. This subscription plan allows for maximum customization, allowing you to send small, medium, large or grand bouquets on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis.

The bouquets vary based on season, and are hand-selected and wrapped in burlap. Giving someone the gift of regular flowers delivered to their home will really help to brighten up their life.

6. Stationery

It is almost the holidays – and you know what that means. Time to send greeting cards. But in truth, stationery is something you can never have enough of on hand. Give someone the gift of Snailbox, and they will get an adorable monthly package complete with stationery, stamps, stickers and everything else they need to send a handwritten note or letter.

The boxes always feature pieces from different artists, meaning that in a world of mass-produced cards, these will always stand out as being truly special.

7. Pens

Pens are more than a writing utensil – for many people they are an art and an obsession, something to really revere. If you have such a person on your gift list, you’ll be happy to learn that there’s a perfect luxury to give them.

Penscription offers four levels of pen club membership to their recipients, all the way from “The Novice” to “Aficionado.” For $55 a month, The Novice is intended as an introduction to the fountain pen, while the Aficianado is for those who use fountain pens daily, and may already have a collection on hand. For $240 monthly, they will be receiving pens that they would otherwise be unable to find in stores. There are also two middle tiers, for those whose interest is somewhere in-between.

A different fruit is shipped each month depending on what is the most fresh, and will come with suggestions of how to serve and store it. Pay up front, and send three ($297), six ($540), or twelve ($990) months of amazing fresh fruit.
