Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I have two unique gift ideas that you can give someone special!
First up is a gift subscription to Birchbox where Valentine’s Day is in the box!
Each month, you or your sweetie will receive a selection of samples that the folks at Birchbox have tested and selected themselves. They glean their samples from well-known brands, emerging gems, and hidden cult-favorites. The women’s subscription includes everything from skincare to makeup, as well as some fun non-beauty extras. The men’s subscription delivers top-tier grooming products in addition to lifestyle accessories ranging from athletic products to tech accessories.
The nice thing about Birchbox is that once you sample and like what’s in your monthly box, you can purchase full-size versions directly from the Birchbox Shop. They have a generous loyalty program that rewards you every time you shop, refer friends, and give feedback on your monthly samples. You can redeem Birchbox Points and save on any full-size or gift purchase.
My husband loved his Birchbox for the month! It contained: exfoliating facial cleanser, fragrance, post-shave repair spray, deodorant wipes, and a jump rope. My box contained under eye concealer and moisturizer, hot cloth cleanser and cloths, aqua lacquer lip gloss and a “mass-discovery” item, which is a surprise goodie that Birchbox team throws in just because they think it is awesome. The Birchbox finds are always in addition to the monthly box samples and never take the place of them!
Feel free to share photos of your Birchbox and share beauty tips and tricks with #BBbeautybuzz.
Get or gift your Birchbox by requesting an invite for a Birchbox subscription. They will email you as soon as your subscription is ready. Right now, a women’s subscription is $10/month with an estimated two week wait and the men’s subscription is $20/month with an estimated two week wait. Put in your requests now and send your honey something that you know he or she will actually use and appreciate this Valentine’s Day!
Next up is JewelScent candles!
JewelScent candles are soy wax candles that smell yummy and look beautiful. All fragrant jewelry candles are hand-poured in California with eco-friendly, organic ingredients and have an estimated burn time of 100 hours. Each candle has a gold-foiled ring buried inside the soy wax. If you find a token inside, contact JewelScent and they will ship your high-value prize separately. All of their products contain a hidden jewel valued at $10 to $7500! Can you imagine finding THAT in your candle for Valentine’s Day?
Simply burn your candle until you see a piece of gold foil. Snuff out the flame and let the wax cool for moment. Then…
REQUIRED COMMENT & LIKE: Go like JewelScent on Facebook and tell me one scent of candle they make in the comment section.
