Citrus Lane is a great company I learned about via social media. A friend posted on Facebook about how much she loved her monthly box from Citrus Lane, and I followed her link to find out what it was all about. Within minutes I was signing up to send a Deluxe Shower Box to a good friend who lives up north. I’d missed her baby shower and this seemed like the perfect way to send something special…
Citrus Lane: Care Packages for Parents
- 4 to 5 “best of” products
- Based on the child’s age (newborn to 3 years)
- $25 per month with free shipping
- 3, 6 and 12 month gift packages
Basically, it’s a subscription service that sends out monthly boxes of new and exciting baby/kid products. There is usually a theme for the month: January’s box was called Fresh Start and contained all-organic products in collaboration with Healthy Child Healthy World, a nonprofit working to teach parents how to go green, one small step at a time. Citrus Lane donates a percent of their sales to support the mission.. From green art supplies for kids to organic baby food, these boxes were packed with fun stuff for baby and mom! You can view past boxes to get an idea of what to expect!
Who Can Subscribe to Citrus Lane?
Anyone! If you’re looking for a great gift for a friend, you can send just one box, or send them a subscription… a gift that keeps giving every month! Imagine the mommy’s delight as she opens a new box each month and discovers cool new products for her little one. Of course, you could subscribe for yourself too! If I were a first-time mom, I most definitely would. All these little items like bath toys, bibs, shampoos, etc add up. Citrus Lane is a great way to be able to try new things you otherwise may not have bought.
What did we get in our box?
Because these boxes are tailored for the age of your child, you may end up with something different than you see in the picture for the current month’s box. This is part of the surprise!!! The box I got to review was for a 6-7 month old baby, which is perfect, because my baby boy turned 6 months old the week the box arrived! We got:
- An adorable bathtub boat (My First Green Toys)
- Dolphin Organics Shampoo and Body Wash
- Happy Baby Organic Baby Food Pouches
- Gift Cards for Plum District
- Organic Lip Balm (just for mom!)
We had so much fun opening our box and sifting through the pretty wrappings to find all the goodies. My big boy is very tickled with the bathtub boat and I love that Citrus Lane always thinks of mom and every box contains a little something just for her. When the kids are tiny, everything is about them. It’s nice to open the box and find something to pamper YOU. Oh, and the lip balm? Absolutely amazing stuff.
Do you know someone who could use a care package?
