Gfreely is a monthly subscription box for gluten-free snacks. As you can see from the photo above, they pack the boxes with a nice assortment of gluten-less goodies for all your healthy snackin’ needs.
Boxes are $25/month (with a monthly sub, shipping included) or as low as $19/mo with a 3 or 6 month commitment. Like something you receive in your box and wanna buy more? Gfreely has an online shop chock full o’ all your faves. Yay for convenience!
Okay, time to see what’s in the August box… [read more…]
FabKids is a monthly clothing subscription for toddlers & older kiddos (sizes 2-12). Each month you can choose a 3-piece outfit that best fits your child’s style. There are plenty of different outfits to choose from (and mix n’ match), but if nothing appeals to you (or your little one), no problem! You can skip a month… or two… or as many as you’d like. You’re never *forced* to buy anything. A+ for that!
I received a code in this month’s Citrus Lane box that was good for one free outfit. I only had to pay $4.95 for shipping… Which is actually kinda funny, since shipping is normally free, but whatever. $4.95 for a whole outfit is a pretty awesome deal, so I went ahead and signed up. Here’s the outfit I chose… [read more…]
Little Passports is a fun subscription service that takes your child on an interactive adventure across the country or around the world (or both!). Each month your child will receive a package of goodies that teaches them about “geography, history, culture, and language in a fun and memorable way”.
There are two different subscription options available: The World Edition, which introduces your child to a new country every month (for children 5-10) and The USA Edition, which features 2 different states per month (for children 7-12). Each option comes with a different set of materials (World Edition comes with a mini suitcase, USA comes with a camera), so choose wisely! 😉
Once again, Ecocentric Mom delivered an awesomely packed box for August! There’s never any extra room for tissue paper filler/padding in these boxes!
Ecocentric Mom offers 3 different subscription options: The Mom-to-Be Box, The Mom Box, or The Mom & Baby Box. Whichever option you choose, you can be sure that your box will contain at least 5-9 (often more!) expertly chosen products for you and/or your baby. The products are almost always natural, eco-friendly, healthy, and organic. They try to provide a good mix of full and sample-sized products, ranging from bath essentials, to teethers and toys, to healthy snacks & more.
Phone Case of the Month is a new subscription for… wait for it… phone cases!
Yep, you can give your beloved iPhone a brand new look every month with these super cute cases. Plus, all of the artwork is exclusive to Phone Case of the Month, so you’re definitely not gonna find these designs anywhere else (well, unless someone rips ’em off… but let’s hope they don’t!). They also limit the production of each design to 200 cases, so the chances of someone you know having the same case as you is very, very slim.
Oh, and these aren’t some crappy, barely fits your phone, cheaply made cases either. I’ve been using mine for a week now and I love it. They coat them with silicone for a nice, soft feel. I was afraid it might be a shiny, smooth surface, and it’s totally not. The artwork/printing is top notch too. This is quality stuff, friends! 😉 [read more…]
Watanut is a new subscription service specializing in… NUTS! Woo! Oh, but not only nuts… Trail mixes, dried fruits, and granola also find their way into the Watanut party!
Here’s the deal: Every month Watanut will send you 4 different healthy snack mixes in convenient, resealable containers. Each mix is a generous 6 ounces, giving you over 1 and a half pounds of snacking goodness! Boxes are $25/month, but you can get ’em for less with a 3-month (or longer) subscription.
Alright, time to get a closer look at my nuts! (Yep, I’m five.) [read more…]
The Other Box is a new subscription box for you and your “other”. Others can be spouses, children, parents… Anyone you love spending time with. Each box includes materials and ideas for a fun activity to enjoy with your “other” of choice. Their mission is for you both to “connect, have fun, and spend intentional quality time together without breaking the bank”. [read more…]
Goodie’s Co recently announced they would be offering a Kid’s Box and this is the very first one! I had seen spoilers before I got my box and was very impressed with the snacks included. As with the original Goodies Box, the Kid’s Box is only $7, shipping included! Plus, it comes in a super cute box that your kiddo’s can color. Neat!
Let’s see what’s inside! [read more…]
Sweet Pea Box is a monthly subscription for baby/kid’s clothes (sizes newborn to 8). Each month they send you a selection of clothing based on profile info you provide, such as your child’s gender, size, color preferences, style (hipster, princess, athletic, etc). You can also include any additional information to help them choose the perfect outfits for your little fashionistas.
Brands will vary, but you may receive pieces from Childrens Place, Osh Kosh, Old Navy, Carters, Gymboree, Sage Creek Organics, Kate Quinn Organics, Violet + Moss, Tea Collection, and more! Boxes are priced based on how many pieces you’d like per month: 4 items is $30, 6 items is $40, and 8 items is $50. Pieces include pants, tops, pj’s, jackets, onesies, dresses, and skirts.
Sweet Pea Box was kind enough to send me a 6-item box for review. The information I provided them was the girls’ size, style (hipster, pastel, & girly), and that they were free to send items one size up as well as their current 12 month size.
Alright, let’s see what they sent! [read more…]
Splendies is a newish subscription “box” for undies! For only $12 per month, you’ll get 3 pairs of underwear in whichever size you choose. The catch is, you don’t get to choose the style. They send you 3 randomly selected undies that can vary by brand, color, style, etc. The only thing you’ll know for sure is the size. Mystery undies! [read more…]
*As of December 2015, Citrus Lane is no longer in business. If you’re looking for an alternative, bluum is a great choice. — You can see my reviews of them here. With bluum, you can choose your own products and build your own box. They feature the same great brands, plus you can save $10 on your first month with coupon code “MRVA286CCE“.*
Once again Citrus Lane teased me with their early shipping. My box departed on the 13th, yet still didn’t make it to me until the 21st. SO slow! Thankfully, I was pretty happy with the contents, so I’ll forgive the Pony Express-like shipping time.
Citrus Lane is a subscription box for babies/kids 0-5 and can include anything from toys, to books, to toiletries, and everything in between. Boxes are $25/month, but you can save $10 on your first month when you click this link. Curious about past boxes? Read my previous months’ reviews here.
My box this month was geared towards a 13-month old girl. Let’s see what’s inside! [read more…]
MakrBox is a new subscription service that delivers useful, handmade products to your door every month. They promise to provide 100% artisan goods that are “durable, sustainable & useful.”
Each month will feature 2-3 household products created by “makers” (real people who create handcrafted goods with a purpose), craftsmen, and designers. [read more…]
Tasty Bite recently contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing some of their ready-to-eat meals. I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical of the whole “meal in a pouch” thing, but I was curious, so I accepted their offer. (I’m glad I did!)
Tasty Bite specialize in both Indian and Pan-Asian dishes, many of which are vegan or vegetarian. (They also offer gluten-free and kosher options.) The meals are fully cooked and sealed in multi-layered pouches that keep it fresh for up to 18 months. They’re perfect for taking to work, on a camping trip, or just for making a quick meal at home. (That last option works for me.) [read more…]
It’s Conscious Box time again! A couple weeks ago I reviewed the Summer Mystery Box… That one was a “bonus” that you could purchase separately, in addition to your normal subscription. This one is the “regular” August (vegan) box. There’s also another “bonus” box that’s shipping in early September called the “1% Box”. I believe that one’s still for sale. But yeah, this is the normal August one. (Confused yet?)
Alrighty, let’s see what’s in my August box!
