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.

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.

C&H Monthly Clubs Summary:
8.2/10

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.

However, if you are looking for something extra special you might prefer to browse the variety of monthly gift options found at Amazing Clubs, Month Club Store and/or Flying Noodle.
