Subscription Boxes for Moms – Mama’s Got Mail Review July 2013
Mama’s Got Mail is a relatively new subscription designed for moms to take some time out of their day once a month and focus on the activity and items included in that month’s box. The founder of this subscription is a Counselor, so each month comes with items that help you explore a certain topic, plus a “Check In” worksheet. Mama’s Got Mail kindly sent me this box to review!
The Box: Mama’s Got Mail!
The Cost: One time box ($49), 6-month subscription ($44 a month), 12-month subscription ($39 a month)
The Products: Items in the box are a surprise each month, and also include a personal check-in worksheet, as well as a newsletter explaining the story behind the box’s contents.
This month’s theme is Marriage & Stretch Marks. The box is full of items for you to assess your marriage and there’s some stretch mark cream from Tia and Tamara too!
This month’s worksheet is a house blueprint with marriage questions – pretty creative!
An example: Deck: Relax — What do you & your man do to relax together?
Love Map Card Deck from the Gottman Institute – Value $15
My boyfriend and I have already tried a few of these, and so far we knew all the answers! There were a few questions that seemed a little too easy: “When is your partner’s birthday?” but for the most part these cards were fun!
The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work – Value $15
From Shannon on why she included this book in this month’s box:
“This is my favorite book on marriage. Honestly, it summed up a handful of my master’s level couples therapy classes in one paperback book.”
Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Bar – $6.99
I love that this chocolate bar only has three ingredients: cacao beans, brown sugar, and cacao butter!
Stretchy Stretch Mark Cream – 1 oz Value $4.50
It looks like Tia and Tamara now have a whole line of natural mom and baby products! (Their Milky! product showed up in a past Cotton Booty box!)
Verdict: I think Mama’s Got Mail! is a totally different subscription from anything else I’ve seen, and I’m pretty impressed with it. I like that this box is more about self discovery and reflection, with a few fun goodies too. What do you think of Mama’s Got Mail?
