The Friday Fix: The Perfect "Just Because" Gift
An Idea for Gift Giving
I love to give gifts for absolutely no reason at all. Don't you? To go against the grain of a "me-first" world and do something kind to lift another person up is inexplicably satisfying. It's even better when there's no special date on a calendar, and no person standing over me forcing me to do it.
The reaction of the recipient of a random gift only adds to the excitement. First there's the look of apprehension. One that says "what's the motive behind this generosity?" Followed by a sudden combination of meekness and wonderment as the accepter opens a gift given by someone who was simply thinking of him/her. No strings attached. And no need to repay the favor. This indeed is a most perfect "just because" gift.

Finding awesome "just because" gifts at affordable prices can be a challenge. After all, even if it wasn't requested, everyone likes to receive a gift they can use.
Target comes to the rescue with Beauty Box by Target. The concept that was launched as part of a pilot in 2013 is now a part of Target's regular store offerings. Each month Target rounds up their favorite beauty and self-care products and packages them in a neat little box. All products featured are provided in a rather generous sample size. If you like the products you've sampled, a coupon book is also included in the box for you to use when purchasing them.
Ready for the best part? Although each beauty box is valued at $28, YOUR COST is only costs $7 a pop! Nice right?
I purchased the Treat Yourself beauty box and was just thrilled with the contents! I won't be keeping this one for myself, but I did take a peek at the products. Inside were:
- Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm Red Dahlia
- ME!Bath Bath Bomb - 1ct
- Dr Teals Pink Himalyan Foaming Bath - 3oz (Pink Himalayan salt with Bergamot and Sweet Orange essential oils)
- Bodycology Free & Lovely Coconut & Rose Body Butter - 1oz
- Honest Beauty Refreshingly Clean Gel Cleanser (1oz Mini)
- Olay Regenerist Whips - 0.5oz
- Luxe by Mr. Bubble Bath Meltaway (3ct)
One more favor may I ask of you?
