Birchbox December 2013:Sparkle and Shine Holiday 2013

We've been stockpiling ornaments and fanciful wrapping paper for months, all in anticipation of this moment.  The holidays are finally here!  Forgive us if we can't stop jumping up and down- this time of year brings out the little kid excitement in all of us.

It's time to celebrate, whether that means corralling your family for a midnight screening if It's a Wonderful Life or dusting off your flounciest frock and taking a spot underneath the mistletoe.

Of course, if it's presents you're after (and we're sure it is), you'll want to head straight to the irchbox Holiday Shop- see you there!

Warmest of wishes,
Katia, Hayley & the Birchbox Team

What's on your wish list this month? Tell us with #BBHoliday!
