Thinking out of the Box

Subscription based mailings are all the rage these days.  From getting monthly shipments of your vitamins from Shaklee, to Baby product subscriptions from Citrus Lane & Honest Company, here are some that I think stand out.

I got to sample an awesome box from Babba Co called the Babba Box recently and it exceeded all my expectations. Designed by their panel of experts to encompass all the ways kids ages 3-6 love to learn. The month’s theme was Sun, Moon & Stars.  With 4 different activities to create, explore, story tell and connect, there’s so many ways to engage.  From using the QR code to download specific materials from this months theme to creating your own glowing moon & constellation.  Also included was a beautiful story book and pocket binoculars to take the fun on the go!  I could not believe it was only $29.99 a month! With the upcoming summer break and no real plans, I’m excited to have this box full of handy projects to keep my kiddlets entertained.  It is truly a quality box, like they said specifically curated to engage.  I am definitely signing up for a subscription.  Right now you can use code FBSummer33 to Receive 33% off their Summer Survival Pack or FBSummer20 to Receive 20% off our Monthly Membership!

Don’t know what to get for an expectant or new mom?  This gorgeous box from Citrus Lane just arrived on my doorstep this morning.  This month’s theme was “Fun in the Sun!” and included everything from a sand toy, to sun hat, snacking at the beach, sunscreen and even a handy washable tote to carry it all in! At only $25 a month and available in a 3-month, 6-month and 12-month subscription, it fits every budget and makes a great shower gift!  Every month a surprise selection of 4-5 “best of” products arrive with ideas for nurturing their child and tips for parenting.  What I love most is that the products they select are eco-friendly and high quality and not your run of the mill toys either.  Recent brands included have been Green Toys, Haba, Plum Organics, Zoli and Plan Toys. Right now you can start your monthly subscription for less! Take 10% off the cost of your subscription with code SPRINGFUN. You’ll save $7.50 on three months, $12.50 on six months, or $25 on twelve months!

These subscription based mailings are no fad, I think they’re here to stay!

{ disclaimer: I received a SAMPLE box to review from both companies.  They are just as special as the boxes you would get in the mail, nothing extra.  As always, all opinions expressed are my own. Who doesn’t love getting a surprise in the mail?! }

    We love Citrus Lane! I got this as a gift subscription recently for my new baby girl and they are definitely a nice alternative to the usual baby shower gifts.

    Thanks for sharing about Citrus Lane! I subscribed for 6 months and can’t wait to get June’s box. I’m so into these box subscriptions – let me know of any other good ones!
