Subscription boxes are a nice gift year round but it's getting to be that time again when they become more of act of good citizen too. For those of us who have been working from home or isolating or shielding, the sound of the doorbell to signal another delivery is both thrill and torture. These subscription gift boxes and services, though, should work nicely as a surprise treat (that keeps coming) for a friend having a tough time or a family member you haven't seen in months. And while you're at it, treat yourself - it's practically the law after all.

True music discovery
Casavinyl, the electronic/dance music vinyl store set up by DJ Peter Asiaw, has a superb vinyl subscription service offering ‘handpicked records’ each month - and the selections are much wider than classic dance and electronic genres. The club starts at £20 a month for two records - or 20 credits in the store if you/your recipient prefers to do the picking - with options for three, five or ten records a month (topping out at £85 a month).
