My Favorite Subscription Boxes for the Whole Family + A Giveaway!

November 21, 2018 in Holidays - 3 Comments

This post was written in collaboration with Incredibundles, however, all opinions are my own.

I don’t know about you, but I love a good gift that keeps on giving. Whether it be a membership to the zoo or a local museum, a subscription to a favorite site or magazine or even a set of new cleaning or baking tools that I can use for years, I truly value receiving something that can be enjoyed time and again.

Enter subscription boxes. This year I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing quite a few with my family, and I have to say, the joy of receiving a monthly box at your door, be it full of themed surprises or full of daily necessities, can be well worth the investment. Below I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorites (that I’ve either tried or I’m hoping to) for this holiday season that could certainly serve as long-lasting gift ideas for the whole family.

1. Healthy Living Kids: This box is curated by a series of experts in children’s nutrition, education, mental health and beyond and caters to all of these areas of a child’s well being. Not only is it chalked full of delicious & healthy snacks (gluten & nut free options available), but also products, games and activities to engage children of a variety of ages.

2. Veggie Buds Club: This one is on my must try list for my little guy. Each month this box is chalked full of books, activities and recipes related to a particular veggie. For instance, one of their themes was “Rah, Rah Radishes” and everything in the box was tied back to this root veggie helping kids to not only learn about it, but appreciate it for all that it offers our bodies.

3. Little Global Citizens: Another one on my must try list for the new year- this box is full of books, recipes, activities and more to open children’s eyes to new places around the world. Each box focuses on a new country in the world and provides a wide variety of materials for families to engage in exploration and learning together surrounding other places and cultures that may be different from our own.

4. Daily Harvest: Need a gift for someone who enjoys a good bite to eat? (Cue all of us!) This company sends nutrient dense smoothies, bowls, soups, parfaits and recently added, cookies, to your doorstep. Not only are their products brimming with things that our bodies love and benefit from, but they are also ready to go and most importantly, beyond delicious.

5. GreenUP Box: This eco-friendly box is packed with a variety of useable finds to help recipients ditch the plastic & unnecessary waste in their homes and lives one box at a time. Full of items like reusable bags and containers to toothbrushes and utensils, this is one that all of us (our planet included) could benefit from receiving.

6. Bonding Bees: This one is perfect for everyone from newly married couples to those who have been married for 20+ years. Bonding Bees is a themed “date night” in a box. My husband and I recently tried out their “Hawaiian Nights” themed box and had a blast playing the included games, giving one another head massages, relaxing with our leis and more.

7. Incredibundles: Have any parents of little ones in your lives? This company has more than got you covered in the gift department. Not only do they have a wide variety of book and bath bundles available for little ones, but their diaper and baby wipes subscription service is hands down my favorite gift idea for families. We have done a combo of both cloth and disposable diapers with Asher all, and I tell you what, diapers and wipes are one of the most expensive things on our grocery list when we are out. I would have loved for someone to have gifted us this when Asher was smaller as not only does it cut down costs as new parents, but also sets them up with the convenience of having these basic necessities arrive at their front door step month-to-month.

8. Incredibundles offers 3, 6, 9 and 12-month subscription options which enables you to choose what best fits your gift-giving budget. Upon purchase, they send the sweetest little package equipped with a plush teddy bear and ribbon wrapped certificate sharing your gift. The certificate includes the unique code that your loved one can use to redeem their diaper or wipe subscription and get started having it sent straight to their door. And the great part is, the ordering process couldn’t be simpler. When I went in to place my order, their site walked me through the entire process of entering my code to selecting the brand (Pampers, Luvs, Huggies or Member’s Mark) and size of my diapers with ease.

And in the spirit of gift-giving this season, and because I love this box so much, I am partnering with Incredibundles to give one lucky follower on Instagram a free 3-month diaper subscription from them just in time for the holidays! Head to my Instagram @kristahapp for details on how to enter. Contest ends Sunday, 11/24 at 12:00pm CST.

So there you have it friends. All sorts of brown paper packages tied up with strings and a few of my favorite things to spread the joy of the holidays throughout the year for those you love. I hope this gives you a few ideas to round out that shopping list – and don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a free diapers & wipes subscription to make the day a set of special parents on your list!

    Subscription boxes are so fun!!! And some of these ones I’ve never even heard of! I’m new to the incredibundles and wish I could have given a diaper subscription to my sisters when they were having babies 🙂 I’m due in April and this would be SO wonderful to have! My ig is @karliezaugg

    This is my second round as a mom. My first time I was not familiar with subscription boxes. This time around it will be amazing to use, especially with two kids.

    You guys have tried a lot of boxes! We have only done Daily Harvest – love! And Bookaroo – also love! Diaper subscription sounds like such a win!

    • And just like that, our babe is three. And while in the scheme of things, three years is a blink, it feels like our life before you was a lifetime ago sweet boy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We celebrated today with all of your favorite things- LEGO building, swimming, trucks, cake baking, sweet potatoes and sausages, Grandpa and a whole lot of frosting 🤪. Needless to say, while much more low key than birthdays’ past, I’d say today was just as special. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In honor of birthday número tres, Asher helped me whip up this Paleo Tres Leches cake from @sunkissedkitch. I’ll admit, I went the easy route on the frosting and just sprang for some @simplemills vanilla, because sometimes it’s nice to have ready-to-go and delicious at the same time. And it was clearly a hit, because this kid downed three pieces 🍰. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out more cake eating and a walk down memory lane from birthdays and party themes past in my stories today. 
Happy 3rd Birthday Asher man! We love you! .

    • Often times when I’m sharing a new veggie or one that Asher is still “learning”, I will pair it with something to dip it in. I don’t know about your kid, but mine loves to dunk (and occasionally bathe himself 😜) in nearly any sauce. And while yes, there are many times he just uses the vegetable as a spoon, he is at least bringing it to his lips and exploring it in his own way. Which is one step closer to taking a bite. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today for snack I created a little dipping station for our cauliflower florets using the following:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Guacamole ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. @kitehillfoods unsweetened yogurt with a swirl of honey ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. @motherraw italian dressing
4. Hummus ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. @gothamgreens vegan pesto
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For more fun ways to serve  cauliflower throughout your day, head on over to the following mamas’ feeds to see how they love to dish it up to their families as well:

    • It rained the second day we headed to the beach in Florida. Literally the minute we plopped our chairs down in the sand, the first drop fell. As we all began packing up the things we had just set out and heading for cover, this little guy, pail and shovel in hand, just kept heading for the water without a care in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you, Asher, for reminding me that even when life seems to rain on my parade, to not lose sight of my goals. Thank you for reminding me of focusing in on what’s right in front of me. And thank you for providing me so many moments of sheer joy these past few days by allowing me to be a part of yours. I want to bottle up every part of this trip and not only remember it, but strive to live each day as if “it’s a day at the beach”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    • 🍯 GIVEAWAY 🍯 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s pretty much a given that our child takes a good tumble at least once a day. Which is why as his mom, I knew it would be important to bring one of our go-to “owie” fixers with on our trip. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did you know that Manuka honey 🍯 contains potent and effective properties that when applied can actually mend and nourish our skin. Not only that but it serves to create a moist, low pH environment conducive to healing as well as protects against infection. This all natural wonder is a staple in our “medicine” cabinet, and as a mom, I appreciate that it’s the real deal when it comes to both its ingredients and supporting healing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This week, in honor of Mother’s Day, I’ve partnered with @firsthoneynz, to give away some of their high quality,  Medical Grade 12+ Manuka honey first aid products to support you and your family. Their ointment and honey-infused bandaids are a huge hit in our home, and I love that whenever we have a tumble Asher now asks for a hug and some honey to make it all better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Head on over to their page to learn how to enter, and be sure to check out their site and register for their newsletter as well as in this latest edition I’m sharing a list of all of my favorites for a “Mother Nature” inspired first aid kit. {Scroll for a sneak peek.}

    • All our bags AREN’T packed 😳😂, but we’re ready to go! Cuz we’re leavin’ on a jet plane...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whipped up this little airplane themed snack during nap today in hopes of kicking off our afternoon packing marathon on a high note🤞🏻. I’ll admit, it’s not the most beautiful food-themed aircraft I’ve ever seen (not that I’ve seen many 🤷🏼‍♀️), but it’ll get the job done. It’s slim pickins’ around here grocery wise right now, so I got creative with what we had on hand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Celery, @traderjoes raw almond butter and an apricot in front for the base. Cucumber and yellow carrots for the wings and tail. And @lovegrown Power O’s topped it off for the windows. And of course, no flight is complete without some banana and @kitehillfoods yogurt clouds. .

    • #ad Let's face it, the majority of the time that we take our children to the doctor's office, it isn't because everything is roses and we are just stopping in for a casual playdate. Aside from well-child visits, it's usually because we are headed there to evaluate a bump, bruise, rash, cut, scrape, cough, ache, pain, the list goes on. There are so many unknowns for us as parents as new things arise with our kids, but it's important for us to remember that most of these things are unknowns for our kids too. And not only that, but when you couple it with heading into a situation where they aren't sure exactly what to expect, it can be a bit anxiety inducing for many children.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That said, while we can't avoid all the germs and tumbles of childhood, we can do our best to prepare our children so that they feel safe and comfortable under a clinician's care when these things do arise. Today on the blog I am sharing in a variety of ways you can work to prepare your child for a positive experience at the doctor. Strategies, for instance, like using books and engaging in pretend play, ahead of time, are ones that have proven beneficial for Asher time and again before heading to not only his pediatrician, but dentist, chiro and beyond. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In addition, I am also sharing all of the deets on this new handheld exam kit called TytoHome we just got our hands on. Using this device and corresponding @tytocare app on your phone, one can actually perform guided medical exams with a clinician anytime, anywhere. Seriously all, we met with a practitioner from the comfort of our couch. Talk about making a "visit" to the doctor no big deal! Learn more details about the device, it's features and where you can buy one in my post.
