Announcing: The Birchbox Limited Edition We Heart This Box!
Who says Valentine’s Day has to be romantic? This year, we’re feeling warm and gushy about all of our favorite things, starting with you—our customers. We created our latest limited edition box, the We Heart Collection, just for you. Consider it our version of a valentine—after all, what could be more adorable than a keepsake Birchbox stamped with miniature hearts? We’ll take that over roses any day. Inside, you’ll find a selection of all-time bestsellers, top-rated customer favorites, and editor picks.
Supplies are limited so don’t dilly-dally. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day normally conjures up images of gourmet chocolates and long-stemmed roses, but this year I have my sights set on a different kind of gift: Smashbox’s recently unveiled limited edition Love Me collection.
Yesterday, I got to ogle the new goodies and meet the man behind the makeup: renowned artist Curtis Kulig. In 1999, Kulig moved from North Dakota to New York City, picked up a can of spray paint, and began emblazoning the words “Love Me” on rooftops and billboards all over the city. He quickly gained a cult following, and now the tag can be seen on everything from Van’s sneakers to Tokyo street signs.
Inspired by Kulig’s signature aesthetic, the collection features bold colors and sleek, modern packaging. These are a few of our favorites from the line that’s now available in select department stores and Sephoras:
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:

Our creative team is pretty, well, creative and they come across beautiful imagery, design, and so much more all the time. Once a week, they’ll be sharing their latest inspirations—from pretty-hued wrapping paper to silly YouTube memes—so you can see the unexpected items that get them fired up.
1. A chicken timer from my co-worker, Kathleen.
2. Chicken timer illustrations that I pasted up all over the office.
3. The final product: recipe cards!
I love to cook, and I have a shameless obsession with cute kitchen goods—salt and pepper shakers, measuring cups, and yes, even chicken timers. That last adorable and quirky item was the inspiration behind the recipe cards included in our new Limited Edition: Home box. When I found out that I’d be creating the cards, I dove into making illustrated icons that reminded me of my favorite kitchen supplies—the staples and whimsical accessories that make cooking so much fun.

When I think of my dream New York City apartment, I picture a light and airy penthouse loft with a king-size canopy bed and views of Central Park—oh, and a functional dishwasher and a shower drain that doesn’t clog. While I’m still firmly entrenched in my IKEA days, that doesn’t mean I can’t get in touch with my Elle Decor side. That’s why I’m so psyched to announce our new Home Pop-Up Shop, a curated collection of our favorite (affordable) kitchen gadgets, gourmet foods, room accessories, and more.
If you don’t have time to browse our Pop-Up Shop, the easiest way to try some of these new goodies is to pick up our very first Limited Edition: Home box, which we designed with holiday entertaining in mind. It makes a great gift for a hostess or relative—I already snagged one for my mom and dad this morning—or you can use it as a dinner party toolkit.

Maybelline’s Great Lash is one of the best-selling mascaras of all time—meaning that there are a lot of serious devotees out there. And the brand’s latest news will undoubtedly send the formula’s addicts into a tizzy: Maybelline has just released four brightly-colored, gorgeous limited edition Great Lash mascaras. Run, don’t walk, to the drugstore immediately.
After a brief hiatus due to rapid sell-out, our Gorgeous On the Go Limited Edition Box is finally back in the Birchbox Shop, and we couldn’t wait to share the news.

Everything inside is sized for jet-setting, and each product has been hand-picked to help give you a 360-degree beauty upgrade. From nail polish to blotting sheets, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve been busy bees here at Birchbox HQ gearing up for our new Here Comes the Bride Limited Edition Box. We designed this box as the perfect gift for all your engaged friends (or yourself) and we think it’s pretty great ($140 worth of products for $55!). But don’t take it from us — Martha Stewart herself has given our bride box the seal of approval.
Last week, our bridal box was featured on a special weddings episode of the Martha Stewart Show, and each lucky audience member received a box to take home.
