Our favourite last-minute gift of 2014: a subscription to bacon

Subscription boxes have exploded this year (er, not literally) – you can subscribe to everything from the more traditional beauty products to geek goods, cheese, even tampons. But we’ve found one that beats them all: bacon.


Cure & Simple are a UK-based company that offer a weekly, fornightly or monthly delivery of bacon, and you can buy a gift subscription anytime – even Christmas Day. It fits through your letterbox, doesn’t need to be refrigerated in transit, and even comes in dog-repellant packaging. They’ve thought of everything.

Each pack costs £5.95 including P&P, and you get 6-8 thick slices of Bourbon, Old English or Pancetta bacon from well-looked-after piggies. Buy it for someone you love very, very much this Christmas.
