These would make great Christmas gifts!
There’s nothing like the feeling of opening a package. Even when you know what’s inside, there’s something about opening it up that feels exciting. And if it’s a surprise gift—or if you’ve already forgotten what it is that you ordered from Amazon — it’s extra exciting. With subscription boxes, you can give yourself that feeling each month. Beauty subscription boxes, with products like makeup, skincare products, hair products and more, are especially popular. We’ve rounded up a few of the best beauty subscription boxes that you can give as a holiday gift or birthday gift, but we think you’ll probably want to get a subscription for yourself, too!

There are even beauty subscription boxes that have products designed for natural hair and others that cater specifically to redheads.
