Remember when you had your first baby? Remember how the gifts started flooding in the minute he was born? Remember how the same thing happened when you had your second baby?
I didn’t think so.
I was so surprised by all of the gifts we were sent when we had our older son. Babies really bring out generosity in people- as Rahima Baldwin Dancy says in You Are Your Child’s First Teacher, they call forth love and giving from all sorts of people–some of whom you haven’t heard from in years.
Then if you have a second child (especially of the same gender) I suppose the majority of friends assume you have what you need. Which is mostly true.
But who doesn’t love getting gifts in the mail? Today I came across a new delivery service that offers the same satisfaction.
It’s a subscription based service called Citrus Lane. The send monthly “care packages” based on your child’s age all the way to age 3.
I think it’s a fun way to try new products- toys, food, clothing, toiletries- and a recent box even included a cool bracelet for mom. The products have all been recommended and reviewed by an advisory board.
You can purchase a 3 month subscription, which would be a great shower or new baby gift. I know I will be looking forward to my monthly delivery!
