The Best Way to Gift a Sips by Box

The Best Way to Gift a Sips by Box

We all want to treat our parents, grandparents, siblings and friends to the gift of a comforting mug of tea, especially when we might not be able to be together in person. A Sips by Box gift card is a great way to ensure our loved ones have an endless supply of delicious tea. But not everyone has the same level of comfort with technology. We want to help you make sure that your lucky tea gift card recipient has the best possible experience with Sips by, so we’ve put together this guide to help.

Sips by is a personalized tea discovery subscription. Each month, we match tea drinkers across the U.S. with delicious teas from over 150 global tea brands that we’re sure they’ll love. Subscribers receive four teas chosen just for them in every box. Learn more here.

Still looking for the perfect holiday gift? Why not treat your friends and family to a Sips by digital gift card to start their own personalized tea journey. Gift cards make great last minute gifts. This year, you can choose to download an at-home printable card, or schedule an email delivery.


This person is so tech savvy, they're practically a white hat hacker. They run a blog about their favorite recipes and follow more people on Instagram than you do. No need to worry - they’ll be fine to understand the Sips by interface and take the quiz. If they're new to tea, you might want to have a chat about the types of tea you think they’ll enjoy before unleashing them on the quiz.


This person loves texting (even if their emoji choices are questionable) but isn’t always online. This one is a judgment call - what do you think would make this tea lover happier - taking the quiz themselves, or hopping on a call with you to chat as they takes the quiz? It doesn’t hurt to take the opportunity for some extra quality time.


This tea lover still handwrites all of their recipe cards and loves nothing more than a long chat on the phone (landline, of course). If you know your gift recipient would prefer to have as little to do with technology as possible, here’s how you can help them out and make sure they still get delicious personalized tea. Schedule a call with them where you can redeem their gift card, set up their account, and take the quiz for them. Bonus - you’ll learn more about what kinds of tea make their heart beat faster (for your next gifting occasion). You can even schedule a monthly call to discuss the teas in their Sips by Box, so you can rate the teas on their profile.

We hope this helps! Our goal is always to make tea lovers happy, one mug at a time. Let’s all sip together.
