Meghan Massey: Birchbox Member of the Month
You’ve seen us highlight some of the awesome folks who make up the Birchbox world on the blog before. But we realized there was one very important group missing: you! After all, we wouldn’t be here without our subscribers. First up: Meghan Massey from Milwaukee. Find out how she shared Birchbox with her mom and 11 bridesmaids, and check back for more subscriber stories each month.
1. How long have you been a Birchbox Member?
Over a year!
2. Where in the country are you based?
Milwaukee, WI, but I got married in Ann Arbor, MI.
3. How did you discover Birchbox?
Through a few of my fabulous female coworkers from Chicago who were early adopters and had signed up for Birchbox as soon as it came out.
4. What’s your favorite part of being a Birchbox member?
I look forward to it every month, seeing that pink box outside my door—it makes my day every time! And having the opportunity to try new products that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to.
5. We heard that you gifted all of your (11!) bridesmaids Birchbox subscriptions—too cute! Can you tell us the story of what inspired you to gift them and what happened after they all received them?
I always gushed about Birchbox to my friends, many of whom ended up as my bridesmaids. With 11 bridesmaids and my mom to gift for, it just felt like the absolutely perfect gift to give them. It was something that every woman could love, and Birchbox made it really easy on me ordering.
My photographer captured the huge smiles on the girls’ faces when they unwrapped their Birchboxes (see above). And the most fun part was that for months after, every time they got their boxes in the mail, it was a little reminder of all the fun we had at the wedding. It’s the perfect gift for any bride out there for wedding gifts, or even showers.
6. Do you have any wish list items from the Birchbox shop?
I’m saving up my Birchbox points—one gift subscription at a time—for the Clarasonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System and the Exude lip gloss in Dusty Pink. I wore that at my wedding and it stays on forever!
