A Shaker & Spoon subscription is one of the best (and easiest!) gifts you can give someone who enjoys cocktails—literally all you need to know about your giftee is their name and email address!
You can purchase 1-, 3-, 6-, and 12-month subscriptions for anyone who can receive packages via the US Postal Service, which they can activate whenever it's convenient for them. We'll send your giftee an email—on whatever day you wish—to notify them of your gift (with a personal message from you), and then they'll be prompted to create their account and provide their preferred shipping address.
This way, your giftee has full control over the subscription. If they don't love the coming month's box, for example, or the timing is inconvenient, they have the choice to claim the gift for the next month, or the month after that.
We do things this way for a few important reasons. Firstly, our boxes are perishable and need to be refrigerated on the day that they arrive, so we want the people receiving our boxes to know to expect them. And secondly, people are sometimes quite particular about the liquor they want and don't want to drink, and since each month's box revolves around a different spirit, we find it best to allow giftees to decide which boxes they do and do not wish to receive.
Please note that they will only be notified of the gift on the day that the email is scheduled for, that is not the day that the box will arrive. They will need to then claim the gift and will receive the box that ships next after their redemption.
Please make sure to purchase through the gifts page as gift subscriptions will do all of the things outlined above and do not auto-renew! A regular subscription will continue to automatically renew until you cancel.
