As I mentioned in this post, thank you gifts for Groomsmen and Bridesmaids always pose a challenge. You want to be original, you want to give them something they don't already have, and you want to them to actually like the gift. This one gift has to say thank you for everything they have done for you in the time leading up to your wedding. (which is a lot!)
You also want to give them something that your friend, that just got married 3 months earlier, didn't already give them.
As an event planner, I am always trying to think of creative gifts for bridesmaids and groomsmen. A friend told me about Birchbox and I think this couldn't be a more perfect bridesmaid gift, birthday gift or gift to yourself. Instead of opening your mailbox to bills, open it to beauty projects!
What it is:
Every month Birchbox members receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch.
How it works:
You can order on a month by month basis for $10 a month or you can get a yearly subscription for $110.
A pretty pink box shows up in your mailbox. It is filled with fabulous samples and that's not all! They tell you how to use the samples and where to buy them if you can't live without them on their website.
I already can't wait for next month!
