Bluum Subscription Box Review – Second Trimester – October 2014

October 2014 Bluum Box

This month I decided to give Bluum box a try. Bluum sends goodies for mom and baby each month based on your child’s age and gender. My box is based on being in the second trimester and is gender neutral as we won’t know the sex of the baby until he/she is born in a few months.

Included in the October 2014 Box:

  1. Giggle Better Basics Striped Teething Tomato
  2. Loralin Design Baby Visitors Guest Book
  3. Healthy Mama Boost it Up! – Mighty Mango
  4. Jellystone Designs Organic Bangle – Eggplant

1. Giggle Better Basics Striped Teething Tomato 
This is a cute 100% organic cotton teether. Bluum values it at $8, which is the MSRP but it’s only $4.99 on Giggle.com. I like that it’s organic and washable and the design is cute for a boy or girl.

2. Loralin Design Baby Visitors Guest Book 
I never knew baby visiting guest books existed, but now that we have it, we will probably use to record first visitors and to give people something special to do when not holding the baby.  Bluum values it at $30. I never would have bought this on my own or requested on a registry but it could be fun to have and to look back on later.

3. Healthy Mama Boost it Up! – Mighty Mango

This item I did not like – it is not vegan and the ingredients are very sugar heavy. The first three ingredients are Filtered Water, Sugar, Whey Protein Isolate – not exactly a health drink. I had hubby bring this one into the office to give away and did not remember to take a picture first. Bluum values this at $3.49.

4. Jellystone Designs Organic Bangle – Eggplant 
This a bangle bracelet made of silicone so that baby can teeth on it. It’s an interesting idea but I don’t think a teether would stay clean enough to go in baby’s mouth if you are wearing it all day. I would use as a teether or a bracelet but not both. Bluum values this at $15.

Bottom Line:

Bluum would make a fun gift but I will probably not continue subscribing on my own. Compared to Citrus Lane (which I did end up extending my subscription to) the items are a bit less practical for what I need right now as a first time mama. If you have the extra cash, it’s still a fun box.

What do you think of the Bluum box I received? Let me know in the comments!
