Although it’s been 6 months since I became a mother, I still don’t feel like I’ve quite adjusted to this life altering journey. Things are constantly changing and the big new change we’re currently experiencing is weaning and sleepless nights due to teething!! It’s not all bad though, I get to spend time with and watch my favourite tiny human learn and grow. Subscription boxes are a great distraction to the everyday so when the lovely Nikki contacted BoXession for a review of their newly launched pregnancy and baby box I knew Laila and I would be a perfect fit. So thank you Nikki!

What we thought:
The Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company
We’re off to a great start with the first item in this box! Not a company I’d heard of before but one I will definitely be looking into. Belgian milk chocolate decorated with a white chocolate rice ball, vanilla fudge and milk chocolate curls, this chocolate pizza slice is pure heaven and a chocolate lovers dream! It is so delicious with all the different texture and I love the fun novelty design too.
Trouble switching off? These luxe, self-heating eye masks promote relaxation thanks to an infusion of mind and body-calming jasmine and gentle air-activated warmth. Get some well-deserved rest time with this self-warming eye mask which is absolutely amazing for aiding relaxation and sleep – something I’m not getting much of at the moment! It starts to warm up within seconds and lasts up to a good 20 minutes. I found it really soothing and comfortable on the eyes and I was asleep within 10 minutes. In the morning my eyes felt and looked less puffy and less strained! So great for providing relief from headache too, they’ve honestly changed my life!
Crinkle Jungle Concertina Cloth Book
I’ve been wanting to get one of these cloth books for a while now so I’m pleased to have received this in our box! It is made with high-quality fabric and the soft-to-touch padded pages reveal charming animal illustrations. A wonderful way to stimulate Laila’s sensory skills as there are little flaps to lift and tug and the centre two pages have a crinkle material that she loved playing with. Laila puts everything into her mouth so, the quality of this book is extremely important, it’s built to last, is non-toxic, safe, has strong stitching and is also washable!
The Bonnie Mob Copacabana Teething Ring
Teething is not only painful for babies, but as a mother also distressing to watch. Help your little one through the difficult teething process with this bunny ears baby teether toy. It is made from super soft organic cotton jersey with a BPA Free Food Grade Silicone ring. Laila has been teething for a few months now and she loves toys she can happily chomp on. The silicone ring is hard enough to sooth her achy gums without damaging them and it’s the perfect size for little hands to hold. The peach rainbow design on the bunny ears is super cute too!
Patisserie De Bain Hand Cream
If you love Parma violets you will adore this hand cream. Packaged in a lovely glass jar and pretty box which is the perfect size to carry around with you. Keeps hands soft and moisturised leaving the lovely scent of parma violets on the skin. A lovely indulgent treat for your hands.
Sass & Belle ‘Busy Being a Mum’ Note Pad
Whether jotting down useful notes, letting your creativity flow, or writing your weekly shopping list, this is the perfect accessory for you right here. This cute little notebook is super helpful for all those things you keep forgetting due to ‘baby brain.’ I know if I don’t write something down, I’ll instantly forget so this has been really handy for keeping me on top of my to do list! It’s also the perfect size to keep in your baby bag.
Sass & Belle Woodland Friends Bamboo Plate
Bring some fun to family meal times with this charming woodland friends’ plate with floral accents. Ideal for separating foods and side dishes. It is made from genuine bamboo, so is more than capable of taking a tumble from the table top and, better still, is 100% biodegradable, giving peace of mind well after dinnertime is over.
A wonderful and well-chosen box of items for me and my little one and we’ve been making good use of all the products. I didn’t expect to receive as many items as I did and for such an amazingly reasonable price too! Many of the products contained within the monthly subscription gift boxes are available to purchase individually from their online store too, so if you take a particular shine to an item you can purchase more. So, what’s not to love about this box?! This is also the perfect box to gift for mother’ day and is really great value for money – don’t forget to use the code WELCOME20 to save an extra 20% off!
