When I was a teenager, I received a membership to my first gift-of-the-month club. It was for beauty and skincare products, and I still use some of the leave-in conditioners and lipsticks to this day. I was hooked—and still am. A surprise box, brimming with routine-transforming products? Count me in.
Gift-of-the-month clubs are, in our opinion, some of the most exciting presents to receive (and give!). Every month, there’s something new and unexpected to discover.
