October Bluum Box

Like box subscription boxes? Have little ones?  This may be a box for you.  Bluum Box is a curated box of treasures focused on mom and kids. When you sign up you enter information about you and your child.  The company says they will tailor the box to your child's age, developmental stage and preferences.  With that being said they tailor their boxes for kids up to 1 year old.  So if you have a toddler this box may not work for you.  I've heard they are going to have a toddler box soon but no word on when that will happen.  In addition to including items for baby, they include an item for mom as well.  So here's the deal.  I don't have little ones but I found a deal on this box through Plum District where I could get a 3 month subscription for $19 which made it $6.33 a box.  The price of the subscription is regularly $11 a month billed quarterly w/shipping included.  I don't have little ones of my own but I know plenty of people who do.   

The good: 

Products: There are so many items for babies out there, this is a great way to try new products without spending a ton of money.  

Price: Reasonably priced

Need a gift: I think this would make a great gift for a new mom!   

The not so good:

Surprise: You don't know what it's the box until you get.  This means you might get something you won't use. 

Bluum Box Treasures. This months theme is Magical Moments.     

Contents of box with retail price:

1 Disney Cuddly Bodysuit in 6-9 months. Value = $5.00 (3 pack $14.99)

1.8 oz. Burt's Bees Baby Bee Shampoo and Wash. Value =  $1.58 (8 oz. $7.00)

.15 oz. Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream. Value = $1.50 (1.8 oz. $18.00)

FULL SIZE Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb. Value = $5.00

1 pouch Happy Baby Organic Baby Food in Banana Kiwi. Value = $1-$1.59

The total value of my Bluum box is $14.08-$14.67.  I thought the Disney bodysuit was nice and soft but was really surprised the only thing Disney about it was the tag.  All the Burt's Bees products are nice and I like that they also include products for moms in the box also.  I'm going to have to search a wee one for the baby items in the box.    

Verdict: I think this is a fun little box for moms and it would make a terrific baby shower gift!

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Bluum Box.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.
