As I mentioned in a previous post, I have signed Becca and Joe up for a subscription box in order for them to feel special too, when Jacob is getting a little extra attention these days.
Joe's subscription box is Citrus Lane and he absolutely loves it! He talks about "his box" all the time and squeals when he sees the brown and yellow box in the mail each month. I used to subscribe to them for their newborn boxes (before Amy was born) but moved it up to Joe when they extended their age range up to age 5.
They tailor the boxes to your child's age. There have been some pretty cool boxes in the past and I've never been disappointed.
For the 5 year old box Joe received:
*The Gigantic Turnip, Book & CD Set from Barefoot Books ($9.99)
*Green Toys Planting Kit ($5.99) Joe wanted to do this right away and I bet he will be watching for his seeds to sprout each and every day!
*Be Good to Bugs kids gardening gloves from Melissa and Doug ($4.99)
*Snackimals Cereals from Barbara's Bakery ($1?) Joe loved this - I'll have to see if I can find them in stores nearby.
*To-Go Disinfectant Surface Spray from CleanWell ($3?) This went right into the diaper bag for when we are out and about.
*A special treat for mom was Moisture Stick from Deep Steep ($5.95) I love lotion sticks and bars. They are perfect for sticking in your purse without having to worry about lotion leaking all over. This one smells delicious!
This month added up to $30.92. Each box costs $25 and often the contents are valued much higher! If you would like to save $10 off your first box use this link to sign up! Boxes are for ages 0-5. This would especially make a nice baby shower gift (the baby boxes have lots of baby essentials) or for a present from a grandparent that lives out of state. Or a "just because" monthly gift from mama. :)
