Knock knock…it’s your monthly surprise!
Who doesn’t like getting a surprise through the post? Whilst we’d all like to get lovely gifts on a regular basis, sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands! Subscription boxes have become the new way to treat yourself or a friend…simply subscribe to the box of your choice, provide your payment details and receive a delivery of carefully selected products on a monthly/bimonthly/quarterly basis.
With a subscription box to suit everyone, here are some of our favourites. All of these boxes are available to international customers via forward2me’s parcel forwarding service. Wherever you are in the world, you can place your order with the subscription company, use your designated UK forward2me address as your shipping address and we will then send your package straight on to you.
Glossybox is one of the most popular subscription boxes around in the UK and is the ideal treat for any beauty junkie.

Each month Glossybox select five beautiful beauty products, pack them into their gorgeous signature pink boxes and deliver them direct to you! With 3, 6, 12 and monthly recurring plans available, you can either buy for a set period of time as a gift or else sign up for your own monthly little indulgence!
