Fab Baby Gift Idea…and an Equally Fab Giveaway!

I’ve been slacking in the giveaway department, but I’ve got a few lined up for you that I’m super excited about. And today is no exception!

To kick off the giveaway run, I’m going with a super duper uber cute baby gift idea. I love it. It’s adorable. It’s unique.

Citrus Lane is a new company based in the Bay Area that, as my friend Heather put it, is like a wine-of-the-month club for babies. Obviously, there is no wine involved…but there are a whole lot of great baby products. Basically you sign up for a subscription and then boxes of goodies appropriate to your baby’s age arrive each month.

Citrus Lane was kind enough to provide me with their Deluxe Baby Shower box.

It came in this simple and cute box.

And was filled with all sorts of goodies, including a really cool swaddling blanket that I can’t wait to try on the little guy and a $50 gift certificate to, which I can’t wait to use for birth announcements. Yes, I’m going to make sure baby #3 has a birth announcement! πŸ˜‰ Citrus Lane also gave me a 3-month subscription, which begins when my baby is born. I can’t wait to see what goodies will come each month!

Giveaway time! One of you lucky people will also receive a 3-month subscription to Citrus Lane…to keep for yourself or to give away to a mommy-to-be in your life. Citrus LaneΒ is definitely great for a gift, but I certainly can’t blame you if you keep the prize for yourself! πŸ˜‰

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post! And, if you’d like a second entry, “Like” Citrus Lane on Facebook and then leave a second comment telling us you did so. Easy peasy! Comments must be made by Midnight PT on Monday, August 22. Winner will be announced on August 23. Prize must be shipped within the U.S.

Good luck and happy baby gift shopping!
