There are some awesome surprise monthly subscriptions out there. Citrus Lane does baby and kid stuff. Fair Ivy sends out handmade goods. Healthy Surprise sends out vegan and gluten-free goodies. But one of the best values out there is probably Birchbox. My husband scored a home run when he signed me up for a subscription back in March, but I’ve held off on writing a post on it until now because 3-mth gift subscriptions were my go-to gift for friends and family for several months.
For just $10/mth, Birchbox will send you a box of 4-6 beauty and lifestyle goodies, beautifully packaged in tissue paper and ribbon. What they send varies wildly, but after you subscribe, you can update your profile with information about your style, hair and skin types, and interests, and they try to tailor the contents of your box. For example, I put that I am interested in organic and environmentally friendly products, so I have gotten several organic skin products and organic tea. The company gets its samples from many, many different companies and it’s always exciting to get a new box in the mail, its contents a giant question mark. Examples of the goodies I’ve received over the last several months include:
- Ear buds
- Nail polish
- Skin cleanser
- Skin moisturizer
- Lip stain
- Granola bar
The wait time for new subscriptions is about 4 weeks right now, so I recommend signing up soon! It’s a great service and totally worth $10 a month! Also, there are subscriptions for men’s boxes for $20/mth and they send an assortment of hygiene and lifestyle products.
