Just in time for the holidays, beauty company Birchbox is expanding into men's products. Birchbox is a subscription-based service that sends members a box of sample beauty products every month for just $10. The men's box is a pricier $45 and is for the time being a one-shot deal: though the company isn't doing a full on men's subscription service, they say they're considering one for the future. The box includes Bulgari Man eau de toilette, Supersmile whitening toothpaste, and several Kérastase products. However, there's also some non-beauty swag in there too, including earbuds from Skull Candy and a pocket square from Bonobo's. This thing just made your Christmas gift shopping way, way easier.
