Citrus Lane (Subscription Boxes Make a Great Gift Item!)

Disclosure: A sample product was received to facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Citrus Lane has created a service that is not only useful, but it's fun.  It's also all over the news. Redbook, Today, People, Wired, Baby Center, & InStyle have all talked about it, to name a few.  Why? Because it's awesome!



Everyone knows that kids like getting stuff in the mail...it's exciting.  With Citrus Lane you can sign up for a custom-fit-to-your-child package that will be delivered right to your door. The box comes with useful items by both new and exciting brands, and also brands you already know and love, and it is designed around the age of your child (newborn to age 5).

Our Citrus Lane Box

Our box arrived with a free trial subscription for Ladybug Magazine, a hard copy of Ladybug magaine, a harmonica, a new (to me anyway) kind of healthy potato chip to try, and a Dreamz to Go Octo light (see the stars on the side of the box in the picture above? That's because my child turned it on just before I took the picture. ;)). We loved everything in our box. The Octo light was by Cloud B and was awesome because it lights up the ceiling with either blue or green stars (you choose the color).  The magazine was great because it was full of things to do! There were stories, cut-outs, colorful pictures, and more.

The inside of the Ladybug magazine.
It was packed full of stories and fun!

Each Citrus Lane box is different and caters to the particular age of your child. You can order a one-month subscription, a 3-month subscription, 6-month subscription, or a 12-month subscription (the latter three having discounted prices), AND shipping is always free!

OMG - this product looks awesome, but I mean to tell you that you never know what sort of inspiration you're going to get from blogs. I'm travelling home to my family in CO for Christmas and I want to do something cool for the kids - I might not only do the citrus lane, but I am going to read a very awesome book to them that I read to my students who LOVE it - oohoohoh, thank you for this brilliant idea! :)

This would be an awesome gift for a child! I think my son already has too much stuff, but maybe one of my nephews would like it.

I did a ton of subscriptions when my kids were little so this would be right up my alley! Plus I LOVE Ladybug and Cricket!

Brian Miller said...

This looks like a box that would really appeal to the kids. I know my kids always loved to get mail.

I used to get Citrus Lane boxes for the Tiny Sergeant and with all of my busyness I put that subscription on pause, thanks for the reminder. I know that now that he's a bit older he can enjoy the products a little bit more.

Chrishelle Ebner said...

I think this is a great gift idea. You are right, children love receiving boxes in the mail. I also like the educational nature of the items inside the box.
