When shopping for a quality gift of the month club, it is impossible not to run into C&H Monthly Clubs. Based on six of the most important characteristics for a monthly gift club store, how does C&H (Celebrations & Holidays) Monthly Clubs stack up? Read on to find out…
Variety of Gift Options
In most cases, the more monthly gift options you have to choose from—the better. However, C&H Monthly Clubs proves the statement that sometimes “less is more” by only offering six basic gift of the month clubs to choose from.
- Cheese of the Month Club
- Wine of the Month Club
- Beer of the Month Club
- Flower of the Month Club
- Chocolate of the Month Club
- Cigar of the Month Club
These six options may not be unique or original, but they are the most popular monthly gift clubs to give.
Great news! C&H Monthly Clubs puts you in charge of the subscription term.
An ongoing (month to month) membership is available, or you can select a specific number of months (including odd numbers like 5) that you would like to sign up for. You can also choose to have gifts sent out every other month or every 3rd month, which is a nice way to increase the value of a shorter membership plan. Finally, you can choose exactly which month to start shipping the monthly gifts, which is perfect for early bird shoppers.
With any gift club subscription, you can choose to pay the entire balance upfront or make payments on a monthly basis. All four major credit cards are accepted, but it doesn’t appear that C&H Monthly Clubs accepts PayPal, check, money order, or any other form of payment.
All gifts are scheduled to be delivered between the 20th and 25th of each month, and shipped to ensure timely and accurate delivery.
Maybe it’s because C&H Monthly Clubs focuses on these six basic gift clubs, but the quality of these gifts are not to be underestimated. From fine imported cheeses to exotic floral arrangements, you can be sure your gift recipient will be receiving more than your moneys’ worth.
Remember too, the real value of giving a monthly gift club subscription lies in the thoughtfulness itself. The overall quality of the actual gourmet gifts delivered by C&H Monthly Clubs is just frosting on the cake.
Offering a 100% satisfaction guarantee is a great start to “above and beyond” customer service. Unfortunately, shipping costs do not appear to be included in gift club subscription prices, and the FAQ section isn’t all too helpful.
In any case, the different FAQ pages (there is a unique FAQ for each gift club) do allow you to submit a question if you can’t find the information you’re looking for. Customer service is also available to contact via email or toll free number if you have any additional questions or concerns.
As long as you are looking for a basic or "traditional" club of the month, C&H Monthly Clubs might be the right place to find that perfect gift. Where they miss on unique gift options, C&H Monthly Clubs hits the bulls-eye on delivering quality gifts.
