Gift Guide 2013: gifts that keep on giving

So maybe the people you love most aren't just a drive away & you will need to pop their holiday goodies in the mail. Why not save yourself a trip to the post office & send them a fabulous gift from these subscription services. Seriously, the great products out there will change your mind about these things. Give just 1 box, or sign them up for gifts that will keep giving throughout the year.
{For new moms:}
Honest Company - give the gift of diapers, cleaning supplies & the peace of mind that everything for baby is all natural!
Kiwi Crate - each box includes supplies for 2-3 creative activities for kids.
Gift Lit - give the gift of reading (packs for all ages and interests)
Olive Box - New moms have lots of thank you letters to write, give them the gift of pretty stationary to get them started.

{For your girlfriends:}
Darby Smart - give the gift of creativity. Each box includes a fabulous project & all the supplies (I got this one!)
Birchbox - a favorite of everyone I've gifted it too! Who doesn't love playing with luxe beauty products?
Julep - a year of nail polish. Your girlfriends are going to flip!
For the Makers - each box includes the supplies for 4 fun DIY projects (without the headache of sourcing everything from that gorgeous idea you saw on Pinterest)

{For your man:}
Batch Nashville - these curated goodie boxes are sourced from local Nashville, artisanal, hand-crafted stuff that your man will love! Give the gift of Southern comfort.
Trunk Club - When this curated box of stylish duds arrives, your man won't mind getting dressed up for you.

{For your parents:}
Turntable Kitchen - your parents deserve a date night too! Send them this 3 month subscription of recipes & music (on classic vinyl) pairings.
Blissmo Box - choose toxin free beauty products, healthy snacks or both to help your parents with their resolutions in 2014.
Umba Box - monthly boxes of curated handmade goods. (proceeds help artists around the world earn a living wage too!)
