entire box

Ecocentric mom is an every-other-month subscription box for pregnant women, new moms, and babies.  Each box is filled with treats and samples of different eco-friendly products.  Each box is only $24 and would make a great Christmas or baby shower gift. It only comes every other month, so no one will be overloaded with the subscription. PLUS, it’s a great way to send a gift over time as they have options for one time or multiple month packages. I am currently pregnant and due at the end of January, and I would love to receive some of these goodies as there is a good mix of edibles, pampering items, and also util items – so there is a little something to tickle the fancy of any eco-minded mom in every box. I’ve also included the pricing of the items in the box to show that the quality of the items in the box surpasses the $24/box cost. Another bonus, many of the companies are providing discount code, just click on the hyperlink for each item to use the provided discount codes. Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!

Little Pim CD

Included in: MOM & BABY box and PREGNANCY box

I loved listening to this in the car, I mean I am fluent in Spanish, but I cannot wait to listen to this with baby in the car as well. Very cute songs and they were beginner friendly for any of you that feel timid about diving into a second language with your kids. Little Pim is the award-winning language learning program designed for children ages 0-6. The unique Entertainment Immersion Method makes it fun and easy to learn. This CD retails for $16.99 online.

I LOVE Gaia Herbs, most of my supplements are made by them. I believe in their mission and their commitment to sourcing the highest quality herbs for their products.
