Meet your gift list savior: the foodie subscription box. These boxes are as close to magic as you can get. Firstly, food subscription boxes are the definition of a one-size-fits-all gift—they are total crowd-pleasers. Your cool friend who has everything, your long-distant aunt, your go-to couple friends, the neighbors who always check in on your cat when you're on vacation—all of those hard-to-buy-for people would love a box full of gourmet goodies delivered to their door. Secondly, they are the perfect last minute gift since they don't seem like a last minute gift. Even if you order the food subscription box the day before your holiday party, the lucky giftee still has to wait until January for the first monthly shipment to kick in (how very thoughtful and sneaky of you!).  PHOTOS: We Found Gifts for EVERYONE on Your List Read on to see our favorite food subscription boxes available right now. As you shop and polish off your gift list, we dare you not to get one for yourself, too! RELATED VIDEO: Victoria's Secret Models Reveal Their Post-Show Splurges

Werq out while you work out.
We're in the home stretch of winter. The holidays have come and gone, and the low temps plus cranked-up thermostats mean it's open season for chapped lips and parched skin. Enter: the humidifier. The handy device can help cure the dry spots, dullness, and irritation that are hallmarks of dehydrated skin by adding a dose of much-needed moisture to the air. They're especially important to soothing eczema-prone skin and restoring super-dry sinuses. For all the good they do, humidifiers get a bad rap for being pragmatic (translation: ugly) appliances. Fit to serve, but best tucked away behind a plant or bookshelf, out of sight. To buck that notion, we rounded up 16 beautiful humidifiers that will help remedy your dry skin problems and look chic enough to display proudly in your home.
We're living in a golden age of eco-friendly cleaners right now. Seriously!

The world watched Ben Higgins fall head-over-heels in love with Lauren Bushnell on the latest installment of The Bachelor. Now, after all the rose ceremonies, helicopter rides, hot tub make out sessions, and (so many) Champagne toasts, the couple is facing their biggest challenge yet: co-habitating. To no one's surprise, Ben and Lauren navigated the tricky moving-in-together milestone as adorably as they did slow dancing in formal wear. "It's really the little things [that I love the most now]," Lauren explains of their quality time away from the cameras to Joss & Main. "Grocery shopping, cooking, watching movies, getting takeout and just enjoying our home together, those are the things we waited so long for. Now that we are able to do those on a regular basis, it’s been really nice." In order to turn Ben's—ahem—bachelor pad into a love nest, Lauren enlisted the help of Joss & Main Style Director Donna Garlough. “Working with Lauren to re-imagine her home with Ben was an absolute delight," Garlough said. "She’s passionate about design and décor, and she brought a lot of her own ideas to the table. At the same time, she was open to new suggestions about what could work in her space." The results? A cozy-chic, romantic space that blends masculine and feminine seamlessly. "I think that’s a perfect reflection of Ben and Lauren’s life together in Denver, and how they work together as a couple," said Garlough. Ever the realist, Ben knew to let Lauren take the decorating reigns. "When it came to this project, I did try to stay out of it," he claims. "She’s moving into this house, and I wanted her to feel like this is home." Everyone all together now: Awwwwww! Read on to see Ben and Lauren's new love nest and—great news!—if you love the space enough to give it your final rose (sorry, I couldn't resist), Joss & Main is one step ahead of you. They've curated a sale inspired by Ben & Lauren's too-cute-for-words home. Shop on, Bachelor Nation!
