Monthly Subscription Boxes

Many of you may have noticed the new trend lately of 
{Monthly Subscription Boxes }
& if you haven't... well, I am about to open your mind 
to a whole new way of shopping and trying out new products!

There are MANY monthly subscription boxes to choose from. They come in all different shapes, sizes, prices & products. There are many out there for beauty, food, organic products & more

This whole monthly subscription box craze is the *new age*
Wine of the Month Club kind of deal

Personally I love the idea.
Especially being a first time Mom

One of the leading companies in the monthly subscription box industry is
Citrus Lane


Their company was one of the first ones that I discovered and loved that fact that I could try out new products, that would be delivered directly to my door and for one low monthly fee. I didn't have to commit to buying and testing products for my baby that 'might' work out, instead I knew that each item in the box was hand picked and tested by a team of mothers and parents who trusted in the brands that they curated. After signing up & receiving our first box, it was a huge hit with our baby girl (even if she was only 5 months old...) The 100% organic baby products & toys that were in the box, my baby girl absolutely loved! Now, we have been receiving the box for almost 6 months and each time I get that little brown & yellow box in the mail, it is like Christmas all over again! My daughter (now 10 months) even likes getting in on the action of opening the box with me and seeing what new toy is inside. Did I mention that not only do they have products for your baby, but for you as a Mommy too? Oh, AND exclusive coupons/ discount codes! You are getting so much more than what you pay for the box itself each month!


Ok, and just so y'all know... I am NOT getting paid for this review what-so-ever.
Nope, I just truly and honestly love their product!


With that all being said, I did a little searching around the Internet and found many more companies who have jumped on the monthly subscription bandwagon and decided to share with you all a few of my favorites that I have found & maybe even hope to try out for myself

As I stated above, there are various product categories to choose from.
But since I am a Mom, I want to stick to sharing only the baby/ children's product boxes (for now)

I am excited to try some of these boxes out as our daughter grows. I think it is a great way to make our children feel special, it is a monthly surprise just for THEM :)

While doing my searching for children's boxes, I came across these that I absolutely fell in love with & that are just for us grown-ups!

For Us ONLY:

#1. UMBA BOX
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am an Etsy addict and lover of all things handmade. Any chance that I get, I support and buy from handmade businesses first. When I came across this company, it was as if they read my mind! Each monthly box is full of hand picked, handmade items, and in each box, they include a little background story about each handmade artist that they feature. $25 per month.


& here is another one of my favorites! When I found out that there was a monthly craft subscription box, I about died! I am so extremely excited to order one! Each month they send you a handful of craft products and a project tutorial. For $15 per month, this is an awesome deal! Also, online they have a community where you can share pictures of the creations that you make. How cool is that?! Plus, did I mention that they package each box in these super cute white boxes with silver label tag holders? You can keep the boxes & can organize all of your craft products!


I am a new lover of the monthly subscription boxes & think they are a great idea for keeping life interesting. It's just one more way to pamper yourself with a surprise for not a lot of money.

Have any of you tried these monthly boxes? If so, which ones are your favorites?!
