Somehow I jumped on this train a little (a lot) late. To think people have been getting fun surprise packages in the mail all this time? I die. So far I have only subscribed to
four eight as many as I can find twelve I have no idea how many boxes, but I have a feeling that’s only the start .
BabbaBox: BabbaBox is filled with activities that allow kids to create, explore, story tell and connect. Each monthly box has a theme and appears to be learning based, which I like. It’s a little pricey at $29.99/month, but the box includes materials valued at $40/$50 every month. And you can join thru my link for $10 off!
BarkBox: BarkBox is a New York City based subscription-commerce company serving dog owners and their four-legged friends every month. Boxes start at $18/month (6-month subscription) and you customize your box by selecting your dog size (small, medium or large). Everyone gets basically the same items, just in a size that fits your dog! Use code “RAMBLING10″ to save $10 off your first box.
Birchbox: After what seemed like forever, I was finally invited to join Birchbox. I think the longer they made me wait, the more I wanted to join. It costs $10/monthly and is filled with mainly samples of grooming, beauty and other lifestyle products. And they often team up with other companies / brands (Gossip Girl, Glamour) on their monthly boxes, so you are sure to like something! Oh, and you can review each of your samples for 10 points. 100 points = $10. So every two months you get $10 to spend at their store. How awesome is that?

October 2012 – Goop Edition, November 2012, December 2012, Limited Edition – Home Box, January 2013, February 2013, Limited Edition – We Heart Collection, March 2013, April 2013
Birchbox Man: Since I felt bad B was missing out on the fun (I mean, even W gets a box), I got him a 3 month subscription to Birchbox Man (which turned into an annual subscription). It’s $20/month and includes high-end grooming and lifestyle products. Both sample and full-sizes. B is a product guy and is always game to try new things. Unlike me, when he gets a sample he uses it.
bluum: bluum monthly subscription company that offers samples for moms and babies (it caters towards 0-12 month olds) for $14.95/month. They recently launched a toddler box for ages 1 and older which retails for $24.95 and offers full sized products and deluxe samples. I signed up through PlumDistrict a while back and have been getting them ever since!
Citrus Lane is geared towards babies / kids 5 and under. You put in the kids age and Citrus Lane will create a box for you based on their age and gender. I was in love the minute I opened the first box. It’s $25/month which isn’t too bad considering all the goodies. If you order through my link, you’ll save $10 off your order!
Cravebox: Cravebox used to have a monthly subscription, however, they now just offer various Limited Edition themed boxes. They are fairly inexpensive and well, they combine two of my loves. Grab bags (boxes) and contests. The drawings for the Dog Lovers and Summer Beauty Boxes are over, but coming up they have a Coffee Lovers box, a Little Ones box and a New Moms box!
GLOSSYBOX: GLOSSYBOX, $21/month, is a bespoke box of 5-6 luxury-sized cosmetic and wellness samples hand-picked by our beauty experts and mailed directly to your door. No matter which subscription plan you choose, from once-a-month to just once, this box is perfect little present from you to you!

The Goodies Co.: The Goodies Company Taster’s Box is $7/month and features an assortment of trial-sized, delicious new foods delivered directly to your doorstep. It’s a WalMart company so I am assuming that their HUGE size has something to do with why they can pack a box full of well, goodies, for only $7/month. Seriously, $7 shipped for a big box is a DEAL!
The Honest Company: The Honest Company is a monthly subscription service which offers a Diapers Bundle and a Essentials Bundle – both include safer, affordable, eco-friendly products that are also really gorgeous. The Essentials bundle is $35.95/month, while the Diapers bundle is $79.75. You can subscribe monthly, semi-monthly, every six weeks or whatever fits your needs. I get the Essentials bundle pretty much on a monthly basis.
The Honest Company Reviews: Essentials Bundle
ipsy (formerly MyGlam): ipsy is $10/month and includes a mixture of 4-5 deluxe samples and full-sized products. Plus, they are packaged in a Glam Bag (a little make-up bag). If you sign up for a 12-month subscription, you get one month free. There is currently a wait list of about 6-8 weeks (or so I hear).
Julep Maven: Julep is a monthly nail subscription service. Each box will feature over $40 worth of never-before-released polishes, cutting edge treatments and cult favorites, including at least two seasonal and style-specific nail colors for $19.99/month.

Kiwi Crate: Kiwi Crate a monthly crate filled with craft projects and ideas for kids ages 3 – 7. I really think Kiwi Crate is a must have winter time subscription. Winters in MI are LONG and these crates are going to save us! It’s $19.95/monthly, but you can use code “LOVE” to save 25% off your first crate.
Love With Food: Love With Food costs $12/month ($10/box + $2/shipping) and you get a box filled with 8+ gourmet samples. Plus, for every box you buy, Love With Food donates a meal to help fight hunger.
Mantry: Mantry is a new monthly subscription box that sends its members a curated selection of full sized food items from around the world to fit a modern man’s lifestyle. There isn’t much information out there on this box yet, but I took the risk and ordered the first box anyways. It’s $75/monthly, which is pricey, but B loves it.
PopSugar: PopSugar’s Must Have box includes items selected from various Must Have catorgies (Must Have Fashion, Must Have Home, Must Have Food, etc.). The contents are valued at $100 and include beauty products, fitness products, food, etc. The box costs is $35/month. Use code REFERFRIENDS for $5 off your box.

Stork Stack: Stork Stack is a monthly subscription box for babies and “includes 5 of our favorite highest-quality products for your baby AND you.” Stacks are $28/month and are age appropriate for your child. I recently signed up for Stork Stack and am now totally hooked! Use code: “C0BD0EB1″ to save $10 on your first stack.
Wittlebee: Wittlebee is a monthly (you can pause the service anytime you want) kids clothing club and they send clothes based style / color / size preferences. The service caters towards kids 5 and under and comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Wittlebee costs $39.99/monthly (boxes have a retail value of $100) and there is currently a wait list to join.
