Last Minute Gift Idea for Women


Perfect Gift Idea for WomenA few days ago I wrote about a gift idea for grandparents. Today I would like to share a great gift idea for women. Are you still looking for the perfect gift for a lady in your life? Sometimes shopping for presents for women can be challenging. They aren’t always the greatest at giving ideas or suggestions. I can speak from experience : ) If you are still trying to find a gift for a lady in your life, I have a great idea. This gift idea is perfect because it can fit any budget and is a perfect way to give the gift of luxury. This is a great idea for a women who wears make up and likes beauty products. One great gift idea for women is a Birchbox subscription.

What is Birchbox?


Birchbox is a beauty subscription service. You can sign up or gift a 3-month ($30), 6-month ($60), or 12-month ($110) subscription. At $10/month the box is very affordable. Each month Birchbox will send the lucky recipient a box filled with several beauty samples. Anything from make-up, to lotions, nail polish and body wash.  Every month will be a surprise. You can purchase a Birchbox here.

My Experience with Birchbox 

I received a 12-month subscription from my parents for my birthday. Every month I get a little surprise in the mail filled with fun beauty samples and I always look forward to it. It’s like getting a little pampering every month. I enjoy the beauty samples because they are often products that I wouldn’t splurge on for myself. I liked the subscription service so much that I gave it as a gift to my friend for her birthday. I gave her a three month subscription. She was thrilled and it fit my budget.

Why Birchbox Makes a Great Gift

Let’s break it down:

  • You order it online in the comfort of your home.
  • Birchbox makes a great gift for any occasion: Birthdays, holidays, “just because”..
  • There’s a subscription for every budget. Price range ($30 – $110).
  • The recipient gets to personal their box. After you give a subscription, the recipient will fill out a short survey so they get the perfect beauty samples.
  • Who doesn’t like to get a little present every month?


  1. Hmmmm….my first time hearing about Birchbox, but it sounds really interesting. I am a women of color so I wonder if I can use some of the products. Whoever came up with this idea though… a genius.
