Luckily I was home today to receive my January Citrus Lane box(es) because my mail lady was planning on taking them back to the post office since their were “oranges” in the boxes and it was winter. I was cracking up .
I forgot to take a real first look picture, so this is the best you are getting. The box was packed full, which is always a good sign.
Citrus Lane has done away with monthly themes, which I think is great because I never understood them anyways. They have also changed their information card from thick cardboard stock to a folded glossy paper. The new one is cute, but the old one photographed better. Also, the old one had prices. Now I have to go look them up myself. Total first world problems.
And here’s what was inside:
~Zoo Lunchies from Skip*Hop ($14): I want to say we have this lunchbox (the dog) already, but I may be mistaken? It’s possible we have the backpack? Either way I think it’s adorable and can’t wait to pack a picnic lunch it in for WB (or L). Skip*Hop makes great products, so was happy to get this!
~Soothing Creme + Playful Wash Packet from Episencial ($10.99): WB’s skin is on the drier side, so I cannot wait to try this out. I’ve tried a few different lotions on him and short of slathering him with The Honest Co. Healing Balm, I haven’t found a nice thick lotion we love. I’m using this after his bath tonight for sure!
~Ella’s 1 Pouch from Ella’s Kitchen ($1.99): I know a lot of people get annoyed when Citrus Lane puts pouches in the boxes, but I do not mind at all. I know that WB will love it. And heck, even L likes pouch food and would have no problem eating this. And I love Ella’s Kitchen because their baby foods aren’t all runny like some brands and don’t make as big of a mess.
~To-Go Disinfectant Spray from CleanWell ($4): I believe we got this in a previous Citrus Lane box, but that’s okay because I really like this. It’s peak flu season so who can’t use this?
~Bear in a Square from Barefoot Books ($6.99): You know me, I love kids books and Citrus Lane always sends ones we don’t have which is amazing since we have a ton of books. I think L and I appreciate the books more than WB since he can sit still for a book while WB just wants to chew on it.
All totaled, the January Citrus Lane box had a value of $37.97, which is more than the $25 cost of the box. I am very pleased and will totally use every single item in the box! I think I mentioned it before, but I bought the Citrus Lane Groupon when they had it, so I get a box for a 15-month old boy (I aged up) as well (*). Here is a picture of that box:
As you can see, the box is very similar to the box for a 9-month old boy. The pouch food was switched out for Nibbly Fingers (which WB happens to love). I had hoped the boxes wouldn’t be so similar, but what can you do? In comparison, the 15 month-old box has a value of $40.27. A reader sent me a picture of the box her 12 month-old daughter got, so I thought I would share that too! Thank you Shannon!
