If you are trying to think of the perfect Christmas present, one idea that is becoming increasingly popular is a subscription to a clothing box service.

There are several advantages to shopping in this way, including being able to try on the clothes in the privacy of your own home and getting an entire outfit instead of a single item.

There are many subscription boxes available, all with unique features, so choosing the right one for you or a loved one needs careful consideration. One thing you will need to do is provide as much information as possible to the stylist you chose. You will also need to let them know of any particular colours or styles you don’t like so that they know what to avoid when selecting the clothing, and what type of fashion you like to wear.

Women’s fashion

Stitch Fix offers a very personal experience and works to the customer’s schedule and budget. There is no membership or subscription fee, and accounts can be linked to the customer’s Pinterest account so that the stylist knows the purchaser’s style. Each set comes with style cards to show different ways to wear the items and a personalised note.

Plus size

Dia and Co specialises in plus size clothing in bright and fun colours and modern designs. There is a styling fee, which is payable regardless of whether the customer decides to keep the clothes. If you buy everything in the box, you will be entitled to a 25 per cent discount.

With many online stores promoting Black Friday deals, consumer group Which has urged shoppers to ensure they are getting genuine deals.
