Baby Goodie Box

300x250 Get 50% Off First Month

I recently found out about an American company called Bluum and had to share as I think this is a fab idea. They specialise in trying out new products for mum and baby and provide boxes of goodies which have been responsibly sourced, are free of dangerous chemicals and, in most cases, have been organically manufactured.

They have a panel of testers whose mission is to evaluate whether a brand or product is good enough to join Bluum's line-up of products. They currently have more than 350 brands and over 1000 different products, to cover pregnancy and all the way through to pre-school.

Box prices start from as little as $20.99 per month, but every box has a value of at least $40, which makes it great value and a lovely treat to look forward to each month. You can choose whether to receive a box every month, 3 months, 6 months or yearly. Would make a great present for a new mum!

Each box contains 5 or more full-size products for baby/child, plus one or two surprises for mum too!  The contents of your box are selected especially for you based on information you provide about your little one, so you receive a personalised box with the best selection of goodies just for them.

You can also review products yourself to earn points for free months.

At the moment they are running a special offer of 50% off your first box, which you can access through the link below. Let me know what you think of your box.
