Birchbox Home : an absolutely delightful gift

sky blue and polka dots

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one to see what was inside. So below are photos of the Birchbox Home but I removed some items so as to not give away the “surprise” in case you are giving this as a gift this year (which would mean the recipient would have to be reading this post too. . .hmm…maybe she is? Anyway. . .)

I opened it the night it arrived on my doorstep and it felt like Christmas morning. First off, the box is really cute–if you are giving this as a gift, you really don’t even need to wrap it! Just throw a ribbon around it and you’ll be all set.

The first item you come to is an envelope filled with cards giving various tips or suggestions for entertaining or hosting. The rest of the box is filled with specialty items including recipe cards and a lovely reed diffuser, along with a DIY project and a few special ingredients to cook with. 

Again, these are just a few of the items included in the Birchbox Home–it comes with much more! 

It really is the perfect hostess or Christmas gift. Anyone who enjoys cooking or entertaining would enjoy this box. I’ve already ordered one for a friend of mine–and I used my Birchbox points and saved $10.00, which brought the price down to $48.00 + free shipping.

So keep this in mind, this holiday season, if you are struggling with a gift idea for someone in your life, you can’t go wrong with Birchbox Home

*I recieved this box as a gift from Birchbox, but was not compensated in any way for this post. All opinions are my own and I was not influenced by anything other than my deep love for receiving fantastic gifts.

Question? How did you use your Birchbox points, yet you received this as a gift?

Kate says · 11.28.12

Oh–thanks for pointing that out. I used my points on the one I purchased! I’ll rewrite that to make more sense!

Rebecca says · 11.28.12

Awesome! Thanks for writing up a post about it. I was apprehensive about the steep price tag, but all the items look really nice!

Like Rebecca, I was hesitant to purchase this due to the higher price. But it looks like Birchbox nailed this one. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

This would make a great gift… And I want one too! 🙂

I received this yesterday too, and you’re right…. it was like an early Christmas present! I loved it so much and was very impressed with how much was actually in the box. Perfect gift for the hostess in your life. I bought it with the intent to give away, but I might keep some for myself. 🙂

I swear by “Lilash”—you can buy it at salon professional supply stores for about 70 and it lasts for at least 6 months—I have used it for about 3 years and LOVE it. I get asked all the time if I’m wearing false lashes…you should look it up! P.s. I love your blog- thank you fro brightening my day with your great beauty/hair/fashion tips 🙂

Hello! Very Interesting post! Thank you for such interesting resource! PS: Sorry for my bad English, I’ve just started to learn this language. I am very glad to know about absolutely delightful gift. I want to tell you about Baby books for boys. The presentation of blossoms to a individual’s beloved is a romantic habit which brings joy to the person who allows them. An individualized contact would be to send a particular species Custom gifts, or a plant for that issue. There are some companies that actually use a technique where they print a individual’s name or concept directly onto the blossoms.

To date, mens glasses make the most of this kind of scantiness and make all of their method to the highest ranking regarding men’s favourite embellishment in one cerebrovascular event.
