Surviving Momhood Review – Pre-K + Giveaway
Surviving Momhood is a new subscription box, just for moms. One of the things that sets this box apart, is it covers momhood from moms with kids newborn to teenagers. Monthly boxes are $30,00/month (check out the current sale) and each month, you get an assortment of goodies for moms and their children. Each box contains a minimum of 5 items for mom and 1 item for your child. Surviving Momhood always promises a value of at least $42.00. When you sign up, you also fill out a personalized questionnaire to customize your box. I was sent the pre-k box to review. The pre-k box is for kids 2-5 and my kids are 2 and “almost” 5. On a unrelated note, it makes me sad my youngest baby is now considered pre-k.

First Look: The box was packaged with tissue paper and sealed with a cute sticker
Ellen Tracy Bag and Notecards (10) $7.00: This is a cute bag with a pack of 10 notecards and envelopes.
Red curly scarf $16.00: This is a beautiful red scarf that is a bit curly/scrunchy. Surving Mommyhood gave me the retail value of the scarf and I stand behind it. I actually just went out shopping for scarves and found one on clearance that was $15.00, so $16.00 for a scarf is quite reasonable.
Snacks: $2.50 There was a waffle, Emerald Vanilla Roast Almonds, and peppermint tea. I will admit, I did pause before I ate the unmarked packaged waffle, but I tried it anyway. I am really glad I did, because it was fantastic. It was thick, sweet and almost a pastry. Surviving Mommyhood included a recipe for Salted Butter Caramel Sauce. I wish I could say I tried the recipe, but I ate the waffle too fast.
Provo Craft Stand Outs: $4.30: I used to scrapbook all the time, before photography, kids and blogging took over. These are cute and I will probably use them to make a memory box for a vacation.
Johnson & Johnson First Aid To Go! Mini First Aid Kit $4.39: These are great to have in the car or diaper bag. This has 2 cleansing wipes, 4 gauze pads, and 6 band-aids.
Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm, Honeysuckle $7.40: I love Burt's Bees lip balm. This has a sweet smell,but it doesn't smell like honeysuckle so much.
Hair Tie: $1.00: I love these hair ties
Toys: $3.00 There was a cup, Play Doh, and three star ice cubes. The ice cubes are really cute and can be used in a drink for me, but I think I am going to put them in my purse. I can see my kids playing basketball with that little cup. These toys are perfect for waiting at a restaurant.
Final Thought: The total value of this box is $43.09. This was a really nice mommy box. This is the first box that sends a box for moms that is filled with really useful and fun items. I am always sending thank you notes for various birthdays etc. I love the Burts Bees lip balm and hair tie. I use lip balm and hair ties daily. The snacks were fantastic and the scarf is beautiful. This is a great box for any mom. Surviving Momhood's questionnaire also lets you get a box customized for your child.
