Mother’s Day Last Minute Gift: Birch Box

In case it’s slipped your mind, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 10th. I think it’s important to show all our mothers or mother-like figures how much we appreciate all their love and support. Our Mom’s new favorite thing is Birch Box and for $10 a month it’s a pretty awesome deal. For Mother’s Day, you can give a three month subscription for just $30! If you haven’t heard of Birch Box, it’s an easy and fun way to try out new products. Each month, they send you 5-6 small samples which change every month. The samples could be anything from makeup, like blushes, mascaras or eyeliners or lotions, soaps and creams. It’s definitely the perfect gift for any mom. Plus, who doesn’t love getting packages, especially those filled with brand new (sometimes exclusive) beauty products to try! If they choose to keep up with the subscription, they can write reviews on the products they receive in order to get Birch Box points. These points can then be used to get a discount on on their favorite products they wish to buy full size versions of.

Aside from the samples, the packaging is my next favorite thing. Last month, they teamed up with Rifle Paper to create these really cute box designs.

To give you an idea of the kind of items your mom might get, this is what our mom recieved in her April Birch Box, Cynthia Rowley: Brightening Illuminator, Temple Spa: Peace Be Still Calming Balm, Beauty Protector: Protect and Oil, Whish: Shaving Cream and Supergoop: Anti-Aging Eye Cream. The best part about this gift is there’s no need to stress about it coming on time. In addition, Birch Box will give you a premade announcement so she knows exactly what’s she’s getting!
