Best Monthly Mom and Kid Box Subscriptions

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Best Monthly Mom and Kid Box SubscriptionsI recently discovered something amazing–monthly box clubs! For some reason, I get a huge thrill out of a package being delivered to my door monthly that is a bit of a surprise. I’ve done Stitch Fix, Ipsy, Mom’s Milk Boutique’s mystery box, and Citrus Lane. This month, I’m trying out Faith Box. Yes, I’m a box addict.

The great thing about these boxes is that you don’t have to commit. I have tried some for just a month, just because I am intrigued. Here are some of the best boxes for moms and kids, in my opinion.

Mom’s Milk Mystery Boxes
I can always use a fun order from Mom’s Milk Boutique, and the mystery box was just this. Did I need anything? No. But, I love the excitement and the caramel that comes in the package. I did a $50 toy box before the holidays for my kids. Inside my box were Automoblox cars, an eco-friendly notepad with rock crayons, and a Melissa and Doug bug floor puzzle. I loved that there were toys for my 3-year-old and 1-year-old. Mom’s Milk Boutique gives you the option to personalize your box. Baby wearing, feeding, and toy boxes are some of the options. They also give you the option to add-on some fun extras, including cloth diapers.

Ecocentric Mom Boxes
These boxes deliver eco-friendly products to your door based on what stage of motherhood you are in. The products in the boxes can be for your home, health, beauty, or for baby. You can choose from pregnancy boxes to mom & baby boxes or even just mom boxes. The website offers photos and information on past boxes to give you great photos and examples of what your box may include. Items like Earth Mama Angel Baby teas and Konjac Sponge Baby Bath Sponge were included in December. Subscriptions start at $24.95. I think this is a cool gift for a mom-to-be, don’t you, mommas?

Koala Crate Boxes
These boxes are specifically for kids, and you select the age level appropriate for your children. The materials inside these boxes are designed to spark creativity. The example crate on their website is all about colors, and it features crayons, watercolors, dice, transparencies, and paints. The boxes also come with a magazine to read with your little one. These boxes are perfect for little crafty toddlers. Subscriptions start at $17/month and shipping is free.

So what boxes have you tried? I am excited to try new ones as time goes by and my kids grow. There is just something exciting about a package being delivered to your door when you know it’s full of goodies to enhance your mommyhood or to bring a smile to your little one’s faces.
