Last November, we debuted a Birchbox Home limited edition collection filled with entertaining essentials to help you throw a New Year’s Eve fête or a cozy dinner party. This time around, we’ve put together a selection of lifestyle must-haves dedicated to spring and all its bounty.
From a foolproof herb-growing kit to yummy award-winning jams, this limited edition box is teeming with topnotch seasonal picks. There’s a sturdy Baggu Market Shopping Bag to carry your fresh produce, an adorable radish-print utility knife for slicing the ingredients in your favorite spring recipes, and LAFCO’s Little Luxuries Candle Tin to spruce up your living space.
Don’t put off using your green thumb! Grab a Limited Edition: Farm to Table Box—which has an $89 value—for just $32 right now. If you’ve fallen in love with an individual item in the box, you can find separate products available for purchase in our new Home & Food category in the Birchbox shop.

Eek, it’s the final hour for gift-finding! Just in case you still haven’t found presents for your loved ones, here’s some last-minute inspiration courtesy of our staffers. Today, our Director of Editorial Operations, Bene is sharing her top 5 picks for her dad. (December 19th—today!—is the last day to order from our Shop to receive your orders by December 24. Go now!)
1. PRORASO Shaving Cream
As soon as I saw this concentrated, creamy soap highlighted in a Birchbox Man video, I knew my dad would dig it. It’s emblematic of Italian style (just like Pops!) and will look great in the ceramic shaving cup he inherited from my grandfather, who owned a barbershop.
More often than not, we add a makeup palette to our beauty arsenal and immediately fall in love with one or two items (lip color, eyeshadow)—while the rest of the hues end up being seriously neglected.
But this holiday season, we’ve found a must-have palette to gift (and to get) that solves that problem: introducing Tarte’s newly launched (as in several hours ago) Treat Yourself to Gorgeous palette collection. Why is this so awesome, you ask? Because you can split the set into three individual sections and only keep what you really love. Amazing.
Truffle salt, DIY kits, home fragrances, oh my!
I know you’re probably overwhelmed by all the Cyber Monday deals in your inbox (I know I am), so I’m going to make it easy for you by suggesting one single gift that is good for just about everyone in your life: our Limited Edition Birchbox Home. Now, I know that not everyone is as obsessed with food and entertaining as I am. But I maintain that this box appeals to nearly everyone (OK, maybe not your “I only eat instant ramen” brother). Here’s my reasoning:
Are Tuesdays the new Wednesday? By the looks of our to do list, it sure feels like hump day. To help you get through the day (and the rest of the week), we’ve got two things you need to know about:
Want an even easier way to celebrate dad this Father’s Day? Give him a Birchbox Man subscription. He’ll love it, we promise.
Birchbox moms are our biggest fans—they do everything from sending cookies to the office to snapping pics of their proud un-boxing moments. They also happen to be a very beauty-obsessed bunch (maybe it’s guilt by association). In honor of Mother’s Day, we polled our moms and asked them to name the Birchbox products on their wish list. Take a peek, and don’t forget to pick up a gift for your own mom while there’s still time: order by noon tomorrow, and select Next Day Air delivery!

Google alum Brit Morin is the founder of Brit & Co., an online lifestyle brand that covers tech, DIY, beauty, food…basically all our favorite things. Now she’s launched Weduary, a super-cool app that makes getting married as easy as ordering from Seamless Web. It lets couples construct a custom site in just four steps and even leverages Facebook’s social graph to help with photos, invite guests, and manage other logistical details. All week, the wedding-savvy entrepreneur will be sharing her best big day tips with us. Even if you aren’t a bride-to-be, there’s plenty to learn.
Sure, as a bride, you get the spotlight. But don’t forget about your girls! If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid, you know how much work the job can entail: dress shopping, nerve-calming, party-throwing…the list goes on and on.
So brides, please remember to thank your bridesmaids kindly. Here are a few great creative gifts to buy or make your besties:
1) Custom Make-Up Palette: Create a wedding day palette for your girls by mixing and matching different eyeshadows, blushes, and glosses that your bridesmaids can wear on the big day. Click here for the tutorial.
It’s almost New Year’s Eve, and you’ll be in need of some chic party essentials. Today’s gift pick is perfect for yourself and any other gorgeous gal.
Why this makes a great gift: Sometimes after a day of rushing from place to place, all you want is a quick cleanse to freshen up. But, alas, there’s no sink (or towel!) to be found. These gold-flecked sheets made from abaca fibers are the perfect soap and water stand-in because they clean up any oily glisten on your face. Plus, they’re descended from papers once used by Geishas in Imperial Japan.
It’s perfect for: Your favorite friend who’s always on the go. She’ll love it after running for the subway or when she’s rushing to happy hour drinks after a long day at the office.
Price: $12.00, available on birchbox.com.
