Subscription boxes are a wonderful present all year, The sound of the doorbell signaling another delivery is both thrilling and torturous for us.

And while you’re at it, pamper yourself – after all, it’s virtually the law.

- Sip Champagnes
Sip Champagnes is attempting to break the hold of Big Champagne, i.e. the same companies delivering the same experience and making what should be exceptional look a bit “one-dimensional.” Sip’s expert Peter Crawford works with producers from around the area, with monthly subscription packages ranging from £50 (for one bottle) to £500 (six to nine bottles, including rare cuvées), replete with tastefully produced accompanying theme and tasting notes.

Sign up, and BakedIn will send you a package containing all of the dry ingredients you need to bake bread – any style, whether it’s garlic and rosemary focaccia, tiger bread, pumpkin and sunflower seed bloomer, or honey wheat bagels.

We also like how BakedIn pushes you out of your comfort zone because you never know what you’ll be baking next until the package comes.
