Each Saturday, Weekend Express is scoping out the latest gift-giving trend: subscription boxes! Whether you're on the hunt for the perfect gift for your best friend or a sweet surprise for yourself, there's a box for everyone.
We've looked at craft crates for kids and treats for your pet. This week, we're looking at three different beauty and grooming boxes for both men and women.
Regardless of your price range or maintenance level, there's something for everyone.
For the makeup maven or brave man : BirchBox offers a $10 box for ladies, complete with four to six makeup and perfume samples. If you like the sample, you can order the full-size version or send it to a friend as a gift. There’s also a $20 BirchBox Man subscription, complete with shaving cream, cologne and even some “lifestyle” surprises like a high-tech watch or funky tie.
For the guy who loves a clean, close shave: If you're looking to enjoy the subscription box trend on the cheap, there are other options. The Dollar Shave Club is geared towards the grizzled guy -- offering up a monthly delivery of a razor and blades for as low as $1. You pick your price point and get fresh blades every month.
For the frugal consumer: Influenster offers up free lifestyle goodies in its Vox Box. You can't buy a subscription. Instead, you "earn" your monthly delivery by writing reviews for various products and maintaining a strong social media presence.
To see a full list of all the boxes we'll be checking out, check out our slideshow.
