Citrus Lane offers baby and child products, parent tips, and curated subscription boxes that are delivered monthly.
Citrus Lane was created to help new parents find the best products on the market for their babies and children. There are several features of the site, but its main aspect is the subscription service. After signing up with Citrus Lane, users receive a box of products tailored specifically to their child’s age and stage on a monthly basis. The products are selected by a team of individuals who have been through this process before (and although Citrus Lane displays its Brand Partners, they promise that they do not do paid placement or any other marketing gimmicks). Prices start at $21/month if you sign up for a 6-month subscription. It costs $24/month for a 3-month subscription and $29/month on a month-to-month basis. If you sign up for a full year, you can have your price reduced to $19/month.
In addition to its subscription service, Citrus Lane has an online shop built into its site. Many of the products that can be found in the monthly boxes are also available for purchase via the site. Items range from water bottles to lunch boxes to stuffed animals. When you see the prices for each individual item (an “Ocean Pals” stuffed animal costs $11.25, for instance), it’s easier to understand how the subscription costs are actually giving consumers a deal. Just as the monthly box can be tailored specifically towards your needs, products on the store can be filtered by age, gender, price and category. Citrus Lane also has a great community aspect, offering advice to new parents as well as the opportunity for members and subscribers to vote on products that they’d like to see included in the next monthly box. While the cost might be relatively high for many new parents, joining the active community of Citrus Lane in order to receive a monthly box of cool items is certainly worth considering.
