BABY & KIDS: Wittlebee

Wittlebee is a kids clothing club. We aim to keep parents well stocked...more

For $39 a month, Wittlebee ships you a box of mini staples (tees, leggings, socks, etc) for your child. Age ranges go from 0-6 months to 2-5 years old. I have not used Wittlebee & not sure it would work for my family - we get a lot of hand-me-downs & family members love giving my kids clothing for bdays, Christmas, etc. Curious if others have or would use this.

AngelaG: I tried this as well, they had a deal where you could get 2 months at half off. It's okay you can customize it further. Some folks I know love it. if I had to give a rating it would be about 3 1/2 stars. The clothes are hit or miss with me, I like some and don't really care for the others.

KaityP: If you want something that is customizable, FabKids is similar to Wittlebee but much more stylish and you get to pick the clothes yourself! You get a full outfit based on a style quiz that you can take with your kid. It's usually 49.95 but definitely worth it as the quality and styles are really great. The also have a deal going on right now where the first outfit is $25.00 if you use the code FIRST25.

Eden Godsoe: Thanks for all the info ladies. Curious about both of these - do either go beyond babies & toddlers to 5+ year olds boys & girls? Thx

Suggested by the stylish housewife

I am a nail polish addict and REALLY want to try this program out!!! Has anyone else joined? I'd love to hear about it!!!

Juliette: Thanks for sharing. I am going to sign up now! :)

Lacey Scheunemann: This program is wonderful! You get to take the fun quiz to get your profile, then each month you get an email w/ your preview. If you aren't into your profile that month you can choose another! So you really can't be disappointed! :) Then I have to acknowledge that Julep's polish is by far some of the best ever! I am hard on my hands and after wearing Lenore (their Christmas silver) for a week I only had a few chips on the end of one nail... not even really noticeable! And if you ever have any problems j

Lacey Scheunemann: Whoops - the polish name is Leighton, not Lenore... I was thinking of my Scenty warmer named Lenore! So Leighton is their Christmas silver! :)

Lacey Scheunemann: And now I see it looks like my comment was cut off: but if you have any problems just call their customer service team! Those ladies are wonderful! :) Ok I'm done now!! Go join! haha!

Missy Lowman: I love Julep! The company is great, the customer service is wonderful. If there are any problems, they fix things quickly and make it right. They listen to user feed back and have made the packaging better. Their nail polishes are hands down the best I have ever used. The colors are true, they take 2 coats at most, and last a long time. It's definitely worth it.

Jackie: Sounds very cool! You may have just sold me into trying this out Lacey :)

Krista: I'm definitely impressed by all of this talk about the quality - one of my biggest issues with polishes is that they chip away so easily. I like the idea of email previews (Lacey) - disappointment is never fun.

Scarlet: Again, it sounds like a must have!

AngelaG: Very cool service. I have this one too. They also send out extra gifts periodically. There is a code out there where you can try your first month for a penny by using the promo code "penny" and of course pick someone if you sign up that you can give credit to.

Lisa A Carrieroman: I'm a big fan!

Juliette: The first year SD was around they were pretty great. Then they slowly started getting bad. When I say bad I mean numerous defects, customer service reps who lie (they tell you whatever you want to hear to get you off their back), and tons of other shady stuff. I canceled my account early this year, but recently opened a new one to take advantage of 2 for 1 Converse that they had on sale (they are no longer on sale though!). If you were considering Shoedazzle, I would pass and head over to JustFab instead!

Women essential subscription

Suggested by Malin Granlund

Who likes shopping for tampons? Not me! Choose your desired products and delivery time and get it delivered to your doorstep for free. They have a great package deal for 12AUS which includes your preferance of 2-3 products.

Suze: Hi Malin, great idea! Is it Australia only?

Malin Granlund: Hi Suze, glad you like the idea! Yes so far it is Australia only. But look out for news and updates on the facebook page

Eden Godsoe: Marlin - are you still just in Australia? Wanted to move some of these to my "main" list but we are predominantly North America. Did you see someone added Perfect Timing to this list. It also does monthly feminine products.

Subscription Boxes: ForMen2 Grooming & Skin Care Products

U.S. retailer focused on men s grooming / skin care, ForMen2 offers...more

Suggested by TomTom's Club

For Men, quality grooming and skincare brands, full-sizes (not beauty samples), encourages a man to do a little more for his skin than just shave

FavePages Team: Thank you for the solution. Sounds like this is like Birchbox for men, only you offer full size products. I'll be sure to check it out.

TomTom's Club: Thank you! Yes, ForMen2 is often thought of as Birch Box for men. Many of the recent startups should be thankful for the venture investment Birchbox attained, as they have done a terrific job marketing in the subscription box commerce wave. Ironically, ForMen2 was the first subscription box service in the country to focus on male grooming and skincare, with deliveries on a regular basis since July.

 This is my favorite list! I find myself referencing back to it time and time again, whether it's for myself or it's to find gifts for my friends. I love that you continually update it with new listings. Thanks for the inspiration!


 Wow - this is quite a list. I know some of these may not exist in a year or so but I plan to gift a few for this Christmas.
