MommiesFirst Subscription Boxes are a Great Gift! #holidaygiftguide {#giveaway}

I am thrilled to say that I am going to be an Aunt again this coming Spring!  And, my sister is moving back home, so I'll even be able to go to the hospital when the baby is born.  I can not wait for baby snuggles and breathing in those new baby smells.

My sister is not a new mom, but she is a mom-to-be and deserves all the pampering that comes along with pregnancy.  She's already mentioned that no one seems excited by this pregnancy - and that is rather sad.    I've had three pregnancies myself,  and know that each and every pregnancy is special and should be celebrated. 

A MommiesFirst care package is just what the doctor ordered, for my sister and her third pregnancy.


MommiesFirst is a monthly subscription care package delivered right to the recipient's doorstep.    Chose from packages for mommies to be and new mommies with babies up to the age of 12 months.   MommiesFirst can also send a Shower Box, which includes more products than the standard MommiesFirst box.

I've participated in monthly box subscriptions previously and really enjoy the fun and surprise of receiving the box each month.  MommiesFirst is all that, yet, they take it one step further, by their attention to the little details and personalization.  It is obvious that MommiesFirst cares about each and every Mommy which a package is prepared for.     

The most impressive aspect of MommiesFirst is that it isn't run by some man in a suit behind a desk, it is run by a fellow mom down in the trenches of mommyhood.  Lorena, is the mom and entrepreneur behind MommiesFirst.  She, along with a MommieFirst Council (comprised of moms, dads and baby experts) find and test out each and every product which is included in the subscription box.  Based upon the feedback from the MommiesFirst Council, 4-5 products are selected for  inclusion in each box.

My Sister's MommiesFirst Box

My sister is in her first trimester of pregnancy - the MommiesFirst box which she received was packaged with her in mind.  It was full of items to help get through those first few weeks.    

My sister, and I were really excited to receive her MommiesFirst box.


Inside the first box was a personalized note telling her why she was receiving the box and welcoming her to MommiesFirst.  The first trimester box contains products for pampering my sister and celebrating the beginnings of life.  

The box included:
  • a couple of magazines. (Parents Canada, Eco Parent & Parents Canada Expecting)   
  • box of Preggie Pop Drops
  • spray bottle of Penny Lane Organics Lavender Mist
  • jar of Sigrid Queen Bee Face Cream
  • jar of Pure Natural Shea Hands
  • tube of Ahava Purifying Mud Mask & Ahava All in One Toning Cleanser

A MommiesFirst Box would make a great gift for any mom to be or new mom, a subscription would make an excellent holiday gift, as each month there will be a surprise awaiting in the mailbox.

Plans start at only $30 per month and shipping is free.   The box your recipient receives is tailored especially for them - a gift they would love to receive, again and again!   

Giveaway: Canadian readers, please enter to win one MommiesFirst box!

Pam - thank you SO much for taking the time to review our MommiesFirst box! What a lovely and thoughtful review - we truly appreciate it!

It is often true that the excitement of a second, third (and more!) pregnancies can often get a wee bit lost - so glad that you were able to provide your sister with a gift to help make her special and to recognize her pregnancy.

It is SO much fun to be an Aunt, isn't it?!

Stephanie Tupper said...

I love that a service has been created towards expectant Moms/new moms. I really enjoy other monthly "box" subscriptions, and it is always a lovely surprise every month!
After a few years of trying my baby sister is FINALLY pregnant with her first child!! She had a scare early on so I would love to see her pampered throughout the remaining months!

I'm pregnant with my third, and definitely feeling the "been there, done that's" this time around. I swear only one family member is truly excited - my sister in law!

I love that the items are selected for you; it's a great way to try out some new products that you might otherwise pass on the store shelf.

My sister would love this. My cousin and so would I,

The variety of products appeals to me and that it features unique items that you might not buy yourself. I have a friend that is expecting in a couple weeks and this would be a great gift!

My nephew and his wife are due in the new year with their first, this would make a great gift for them. I like that fact that you get products you would not normally buy.

Colleen at Forty Something Bride said...

I like some of the products in the package you show! Ahava is a great line. So I know they have good taste. This would be perfect for my neice and her newborn.

Angela M said...

I like the idea of getting a few helpful things each month without having to hunt the items down yourself and I'm sure you'd discover things you didn't even know you needed! My son is already 11 months old so I'd love to give this to my cousin.

I love that there a different ones for new moms & pregnant moms. I would love Ine.

Rick and Jennifer said...

The whole concept interests me - I think it's a great idea to receive age/development appropriate goodies that you may not know you even need. And how fun to get a surprise delivered periodically! One of my co-workers who is expecting her first baby in February would love this, and I think it would make a nice group gift from the girls at work.

robynl said...

I like the surprise each month and that it is age appropriate for the recipient
