Holiday Gift Guide 2013 :: A Surprise Every Month with Citrus Lane {Review & Special Offer}

 I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

I love receiving packages on my doorstep, especially when the contents inside the box are a bit of a surprise! Enter one of my obsessions: monthly subscription boxes. For a gift that keeps on giving month after month, consider this subscription box company for the little ones this gift-giving season.

Citrus Lane helps you discover the latest and greatest products on the market for young children. Through their monthly subscription box you'll be able to keep up with the hot new natural brands that continue to emerge. Citrus Lane boxes are tailored to your child's age (from newborn to 5 years), so the contents of each box are age appropriate and relevant.

Buddy will be turning 5 this week, so the 5-year-old box is what we selected to review. I was curious to see how this box would appeal to Buddy since sometimes subscription companies aim too young for their aged boxes, but upon opening I knew he would love it.

Buddy was really delighted with his box, which was the November box with a "travel" theme. The Green Toys hamburger toy has been a big hit and I love that the pieces don't have that chemical-laden plastic smell like most play food sets. We have far too many art supplies in our home so the Doodle Pad and Beeswax Crayons didn't excite him too much, but I'll save them for when we need them. Buddy couldn't wait to eat his new organic snack and use his new reusable lunch bag though!

Our box also included a discount code for Tiny Prints, information on each product and discounts for each of the brand's websites to shop some more. I think this box is very well-rounded, and thoroughly thought out. Each month is a surprise, so your child will get something new and exciting with each box. What kid doesn't love getting a few "presents" in the mail, right?!

Subscription boxes are fun because they're often filled with items I wouldn't normally pick up on my own, or run in to at an actual store. It's a great way to get a little adventurous, and sneak away from the normal brands that you might be used too.

Citrus Lane seems to partner with a lot of my favorite natural and organic brands. I also love seeing that they are focusing on eco-friendly, healthy products to encourage bright futures for our children. For a truly fun, exciting gift this Christmas, give a Citrus Lane subscription to the little ones in your life. There are several subscription options to choose from, and monthly boxes are as low as $19 each with a 6-month subscription.
