- About Birchbox
Birchbox is the creation of Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp who met whilst studying at Harvard Business School. They launched the company in 2010 as a means for people to be able to try a selection of beauty products each month before they committed to buying the full versions. Birchbox has proven to be an extremely popular concept, with over 5 million boxes delivered to date.
When you gift this subscription you don't necessarily need to know the intended delivery address as there is an option to notify the recipient by email for them to supply their prefeered delivery address.
BirchBox also allows you to specify a date at which the gift nitification email is sent. Alternatively, if you do know the delivery address of the recipient you have the option to choose a dispatch date for the first box of the subscription. If you'd prefer, you can get the first box delivered to your own address if you'd prefer to present the first box to them in person on the day.
All subsequent boxes will be dispatched to the recipient.
After the initial delivery boxes will leave the warehouse after the 15th of each month. You'll receive an email when your box ships and it usually takes between three to four working days for it to arrive.
