We signed up for a subscription for Citrus Lane just before Jonathan was born. Our first box arrived in March, and he was born in April, so we've had items from our subscription as long as we've had him. Without question, his favorite toys and many of the most useful items we have came from those boxes.
If you aren't familiar with Citrus Lane, it's a service that provides boxes filled with age-appropriate goodies for your baby (newborn to age 3) and sometimes for mom. The contents of each box are a surprise, so it's a fun present from the mailman in the middle of each month. Think of it like a fruit of the month club only with baby stuff. Super good quality baby stuff. Eco-friendly, all natural, awesome baby stuff. (Green Toys, Skip Hop, iPlay, Plum Organics, etc.) Not only do we get awesome, useful items every month, but they also sometimes include discount codes and coupons for other websites and products.
Ok, enough yammering from me. You can find out more about them on their site. What I really want to say is that our Citrus Lane subscription is AMAZING. Worth every single penny and more. I would sign up again in a heartbeat. In fact, I already have, as we recently extended our subscription to make absolutely sure we never run out.
I wish I had more pics to hand of some of the fabulous stuff we've received. But, here are a few at least. The towel, sun hat, clutch toy and art card are from some of our earliest boxes.
