If we really admit it, half of the fun of receiving a gift is the anticipation and opening of the gift. What could it be? What wonderful surprise could await inside that box? It is exciting. So what could be more fun for a new mommy than a box full of baby gifts that arrives monthly? That’s the idea behind Citrus Lane. Citrus Lane is a subscription-based gift service that sends new moms a monthly box of goodies with four-five hand-selected, age-appropriate gifts for baby (ages 1 month – 3 years). The mailed gift boxes include suprises such as toys, bath products, snacks, keepsakes and other mom-tested must haves.
From Citrus Lane:
I like to think of our monthly boxes as care packages to help moms and dads on their parenting journeys. Every product we include has been recommended and reviewed by our advisory board and our community. No marketing gimmicks, no paid placements — just real recommendations from real parents for products that solve real problems.
Why I Love It – My husband purchased a three-month subscription for me on the day our daughter was born, and my first box just arrived this week. I was so excited when my box arrived in the mail, it was like an early Christmas just for me. I loved all of my gifts (including one product I already swear by and another I had been thinking about buying for myself). I already can’t wait for my box next month! It’s a great gift idea for a second (or third…) baby when mom already has all of the “big” stuff.
Buy It – Citrus Lane offers monthly subscriptions for $25 a month or prepaid subscriptions (great for gifts) in three, six or 12-month increments (with discounts available for six- and 12-month subscriptions). Plus, enter coupon code CITRUSHALF at checkout and get the first month of your monthly subscription for only $12.50.
Great Gift For – Moms and moms to be. Because you can start a subscription at any time, this is a wonderful gift for any mom with a little one under three years old. (When mom redeems her gift subscription, she is asked the age of her child (in months) to determine which gift box to start with. And if mom gets multiple gift subscriptions, they are automatically stacked so the boxes just keep coming.) Since Citrus Lane also offers a baby shower gift box, it’s a wonderful idea for moms to be as well.
