Citrus Lane review (November box)

       My November Citrus Lane box for Graham came super early this month. It normally arrives anywhere between the 17th and 22nd of the month, but unexpectedly showed up on the 14th this month. They may be trying to send out boxes early because of the holiday this month. 

First look! 

Lots of good things in there! 

This month's Citrus Lane boxes contained great brands like Green Toys, Boon, Bumkins, Faber Castell, Skip Hop, and Tiny Prints. 

           Here are the details on what we received in our box for our two-month-old son:
  • Twist Teether from Green Toys ($10.99): As I have mentioned before, we love Green Toys! They are made from recycled plastic and are made in the USA! This seems like a really fun baby toy: easy for baby to grasp, rounded edges for safety, plenty of textures to gnaw on, and it just looks like it would be really entertaining for a baby. 

  • Starter Bib from Bumkins ($4.95): I love waterproof bibs like this with the pocket for babies. This one is made of lightweight odor and stain resistant fabric in a really cute car pattern. Just rinse and hang dry. We definitely need some of these for when Graham starts eating solids because we didn't keep any of Owen's bibs.  

  • Lip Comfort from Purlisse ($16.00): This lip balm sure is fancy. I would never spend that much on lip balm. It is petroleum-free and contains shea and mango butters, vegetable butters, and jojoba oils to hydrate lips.  

  • Clutch Dishwasher Basket from Boon ($11.99): This is a really cool dishwasher basket from Boon. The company makes the coolest looking products and we love all of them. We can definitely use this dishwasher basket since we wash Graham's bottles and pacifiers in the dishwasher. The color is a special combination designed just for Citrus Lane subscribers. I love how it holds bottle nipples so that dirty water doesn't get stuck up inside it since they all face up. 

  •  Four Sets of Address Labels and Free Shipping from Tiny Prints: This voucher is good for free address labels and free shipping from Tiny Prints. The only problem is you have to make a minimum purchase of $99 to use it. That would be great if I ordered a ton of Christmas cards, but we don't really send that many and I have no need to spend that much. 

       The retail value of this box is $43.93, which is more than $20 over what I paid for it since I subscribe for six months at a time and get these boxes monthly for $21 rather than the $25 if you pay monthly. I probably won't use the Tiny Prints voucher because I don't want to spend $99 on Christmas cards, so I didn't count the price of the free address labels into the total. 
       If you are interested in signing up for Citrus Lane, you can use this LINK to get $10 when you start a subscription. It's my favorite subscription box for babies and toddlers from newborns to age 5. They have introduced us to a lot of great brands and products and are a fun treat to get in the mail each month.
