For the Faithful July 2015 Subscription Box

For the Faithful is a monthly subscription box full of Christian products delivered right to your door. You may receive items like a cool t-shirt (and we mean cool, something you’ll want to wear), books, DVDs, items for the house or garden, something brilliantly inspirational, or things for the kids.

The Box

For the Faithful ships via FedEx Smart Post. Boxes generally ship around the 20th of the month and take about a week to arrive to me.

For the Faithful July 2015 Subscription Box Review

First Look

I wasn’t sure what to think of this first look.  It was different than any other For the Faithful first looks that’s for sure.

For the Faithful July 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Information Card

The July 2015 For the Faithful included the following items:

~Renewed Spirit Body Lotion & Shower Gel ($10/each): The packaging on these is beautiful and would make fabulous gifts.  The Moonlight Orchid scent is a bit much for me, so I am going to do just that – gift them to a friend.  The packaging and the bottles themselves have Psalm 51:10 printed on them.

Renewed Spirit Body Lotion

For the Faithful July 2015 Subscription Box Review

Renewed Spirit Shower Gel

~Renewed Spirit Lip Balm (~$2): I thought the Moonlight Orchid scent was much nicer in a lip balm than it was in the shower gel / body lotion.  It just wasn’t “as much” if that makes sense.  This also has Psalm 51:10 printed on it, but it’s from the King James Version, so it’s slightly different.

Renewed Spirit Lip Balm

~Set of Hair Accessories (~$7): These are probably better suited for a younger girl, but I will use those hair ties.  I don’t think you can ever have enough.

Set of Hair Accessories

~Wristbands (~$5): Again, these are probably suited for a younger girl so I will end up gifting them.  I

Wristbands

All totaled I came up with an estimated value of $34 for the July 2015 For the Faithful.  I have to say, I wasn’t in love with this one.  I know their boxes are geared towards families, but if you don’t have a younger daughter / niece, etc. I don’t know if you’d be overly excited by this one.  I should mention though, one of their boxes had a Thomas the train DVD and train in it and that was obviously age specific as well.

The Packing Slip

B’s July 2015 Five Four Club package contained the following:

~Malcolm Button Down ($55): Meh.  B and I don’t mind the pattern on this so much, but it’s short-sleeved.  I really need to note in my profile that short sleeved button-downs are a no.

Malcolm Button Down

~Camp McNairy T-Shirt ($35): I totally laughed when I read the back of this shirt.  It’s pretty thin, but B will wear it around the house.  I don’t know that he’d wear it out anywhere because I would don’t know he’d want anyone trying to read the back.

~Canoe Mark T-Shirt ($35): This shirt works.  Out of everything in this month’s package, B will wear this the most.  It’s a nice heavy t-shirt in a great color.  The print isn’t overwhelming on it either.

Canoe Mark T-Shirt

All totaled B’s July 2015 Five Four Club had a value of $125.  Because we don’t love the button-down (totally my fault for my specifying no short-sleeved button-downs) this wasn’t our favorite month.   But the t-shirts work so it wasn’t a total loss.  Hopefully next month is fantastic and we love everything!

Say It With A Sock July 2015 Subscription

Say It With a Sock is a monthly sock subscription club. Every month they will send you only socks sourced from the brands we know and love like Happy Socks, Richer Poorer, Sock it to Me, and Zulu Zion. You can also opt to include a personalized Sylvie Lee handwritten card with your subscription each month.

Say It With A Sock July 2015 Subscription Review

The Package

Say It With a Sock ships monthly via USPS around the 5th of the month.

Say It With A Sock July 2015 Subscription Review

First Look

Everything came packaged in a cute little printed pouch!  The box doesn’t include an information card, but it isn’t really necessary for a subscription of this type.

The Card:  My card was just an example to show what you’d get if you opted for the personalized card option. I thought the little drawing on it was adorable and believe this is one of the few boxes that allows you to send a personalized greeting each month.

Say It With A Sock July 2015 Subscription Review

The Card

~The Socks (Richer Poorer) ($12): B has received a few pairs of Richer Poorer socks, but this is the first time I have gotten my own pair.  They are well made and cute!  It’s not sock season here, but it won’t be long!

Say It With A Sock July 2015 Subscription Review

The Socks

The subscription option I received to review was $15.  Without the personalized card it would be $12/month. $12 for a pair of socks is generally more than I would pay, however, I can see this as being a cute gift for a college student or someone who has just moved out on their own.  I remember always being in need of clean socks in college!

Citrus Lane Mystery Box Review

Citrus Lane has been offering Mystery Boxes on a somewhat regular basis lately and I decided to pick one up during the last sale. The Mystery Box I selected was $39 (plus $5.95 S/H) and included a John Deere Real Sounds Lawnmower from TOMY. I can’t remember the exact age group the box was recommended for, but I am guessing it was 2+.

If you aren’t familiar, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box for babies from 0 to 5 years old which contains four or more products selected especially for the age and stage of your child. Citrus Lane is $29/month, but they always have great coupon codes that let you try them out very inexpensively!  And every once in a while they also offer Mystery Boxes in their shop.  Mystery Boxes range from $19 or $39 and promise to contain products worth double the cost of the box.  Items are typically repeats from their monthly boxes, but they are always a great deal.

The Box

Citrus Lane ships via FedEx Smart Post and a week to arrive.  I ordered this on the 23rd of July and it arrived on August 1st so it wasn’t too bad at all.

Citrus Lane Mystery Box Review + Coupon Code

First Look

The box everything was shipped in was HUGE.  When it arrived I couldn’t remember why it was so big, but when I opened it up it all came back to me.  Mystery boxes don’t include information cards, but the box features the following items:

~Match Stacks (Transportation) from Tree Hopper Toys ($19.99): We actually have this set (I expect to receive duplicates in CL Mystery Boxes so it’s not a surprise we already have them), but they are awesome and will make a fantastic gift.  They are printed wooden discs with pictures of different vehicles on them.You can use them to practice stacking and when your little one is ready you can play a matching game with them. WB is getting better at matching, but he still needs some practice!

~John Deere Real Sounds Lawnmower from TOMY ($27.21): This is probably a little “young” for WB, but he loves the old bubble mower we have so I knew he’d like this.  And he does.  He’s obsessed with it actually.  It “talks” and remind kids to check the gas and oil and makes other fun lawn mower sounds.

~Crocodile Creek 5″ Playground Ball ($7.99): We love these playground balls!  They last forever and no matter how rough the boys are with them, they do not pop.  And trust me, the boys have tried to pop them.  They do fade in the sun though (although I guessing that is to be expected), so if you don’t want it to fade, don’t leave it outside.

~Ouchies Adhesive Bandages ($5): Again, these are very useful and always can be used around here.  The boys need bandages for everything and we do through a ton of them.

All totaled this Citrus Lane Mystery Box had a value of $70.18.  I used current (online) prices and not retail prices which Citrus Lane uses in the $80+ valuation.  I am thrilled with this box and just love their Mystery Boxes!  They don’t have any available right now, but I will post as soon as they are available again.
