Mother's Day Gift Guide - The Spice Box Subscription - Review & Giveaway

Have you heard of The Spice Box? If not, you should have. Over the last few months, they've  been featured in Cosmopolitan, SELF, Glamour and some other mainstream magazines as top gift options for couples. Spicy Subscriptions gives you the chance to try out a wide range of adult products every month for one low price and it's more than just toys. The Spice Box contains romantic gifts and an assortment of Intimate Toys, Massage Oils, Sexy Lingerie, Romantic Fragrances and more.  I've tried out a few of their packages and my love life will never be the same. Every month the Spice Box is different, but I'll tell you a little about what was in my package this month.

 Lusty Lacquers - Nail Lacquer - This sex-rated nail polish comes in a variety of kinky colors that will help get you in the mood long before the evening begins. While the polish doesn't have any special features other than their naughty names, the power of suggestion comes into play even as you prepare for date night. Besides coming in great colors, the polish has no harmful toxins. It's also long lasting and quick drying.

Kama Sutra Lip Fetish - This lip gloss serves a dual purpose. The glossy shine will add a sensuous pout to any lips, but it's also an oral stimulant. Whether you're kissing someone on the lips or working your way down, you'll feel the magic tingle working and it will enhance any type of four-play.

Simply Sensual Massage Candle - This candle helps set the mood in more ways than one. They come in a variety of seductive scents and each one contains pheromones that are admitted into the air as it burns. Once it melts down a little, the soy wax actually becomes a warm massage oil. It's not so hot that it will burn, but it's very stimulating. The warmth is a great way to unwind before the real fun begins. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smelling wonderful.

Spicy Rabbit - Of course, the toy is the most exciting part of every Spice Box. With two separate motors, a tickler, seven vibration speeds and six rotation speeds, The Spicy Rabbit is a personal massager that will make anyone smile. It's even waterproof for bath time fun. While I won't go into a detailed description of how well this works, you can be sure it will provide hours of entertainment for you and your significant other.

 Samples - There were also a variety of samples to try out in every Spice Box. This months trial sizes included Pink Silicone Lubricant for Women and Gun Oil Force Recon Hybrid Silicone Lubricant.

The Spicy Subscriptions boxes are available for  prices ranging from $29.95 to $34.95. They also offer a Deluxe Toy of the Month (this is one with a higher value sex toy) for only $19.95. The variety of items you receive would cost a lot more if you purchased them individually, so this is definitely a great deal. Plus shipping is free and the items arrive in discreet packaging.  Every month Spicy Subscriptions discreetly delivers fun and flirty romantic surprises to your door.  Each Spice Box includes an assortment of one or two full-size products, 2-4 travel sized products and one toy.  The Deluxe Spice Box includes an extra full-sized product.  Every month you’ll be treated to romantic gifts, fun toys, massage oils, lingerie and more. So this Mother's Day, spice up your life live with a monthly gift from Spicy Subscriptions. It's a great gift for moms and dads who are looking for some special time away from the kids!  To learn more, you can visit their website or follow Spicy Subscriptions on face book, twitter or pinterest.

My Thoughts 

The Tubble Table Vroom-Vroom Vehicles are affordable way to make bath-time fun for your children. For only $8.99, you receive a variety of different types of vehicles including a boat, car, airplane  and  helicopter. Each one floats in the water, but can also be used like a squirt gun. Just squeeze them underwater to fill them up and spray a thin stream of water.  

My children both enjoyed playing with the Vroom-Vroom vehicles. There are no small pieces so kids of all ages can enjoy them. In addition to bath-time fun, they are also perfect for the pool. The paint doesn't wear away or rub off like some bath toys I've purchased in the past, and don't forget they are the perfect companion to the Tubby Table!

Healthy Surprise Subscription Box - Good-for-You Snacks Delivered Right to Your Door - Review & #Giveaway

I love trying out healthy snacks, but let's face it...not all of them are going to be a fit for every person. When you buy all-natural products, they are more expensive than most store brands, so you want to make sure it's worth the purchase price before you buy. Healthy Surprise offers a unique subscription service that allows you to sample a variety of all-natural, earth friendly and organic products each month. For one low price each month, a new selection gets shipped right to your door, allowing you to sample some of the best all-natural products on the market and see which ones you enjoy the most.
You can choose from a starter box, big box or combo box. Save even more money by ordering several months in advance. 

I received Healthy Surprise Starter Box to try out and I was pretty impressed with the selection. The package is about the size of a shoe box, and it's packed with tons of tasty treats. This month's box included selections from:
Theo-Organic and Fair Trade Chocolate -This variety was dark chocolate with salted almonds.
Bare Fruits -Chile Lime Apple Chips
GoGo Squeez Apple Peach Applesauce
Oloves in both Lemon & Rosemary and Basil &Garlic Varieties
Inka Chips - The cousin of banana chips. 
Snip Chips - Parship & Coconut Snack Mix
 Snapz - Premium Tomato Crunch

Pro Bar - The Super-fruit Energy Bar
Go Healthy New York Date Dar
Just Fruit Bar in Apple Cherry
KaleNola - Chocolate granola made from kale. 
Some of these brands I received I was familiar with and a few I've even reviewed on this blog, but the flavors were varieties I hadn't had a chance to try yet. Other brands I never heard of before getting my box. There were so many awesome choices, everyone in my family of six found a new snack they loved. . There wasn't anything in this batch that someone didn't enjoy and I know I'll be looking for many of these brands in my local stores or online. You also get a $25 gift card off your next order from Healthy Surprise so you can try out even more more products.

If you're looking to try out some new snacks that you can feel good about giving to your family and you want to make healthy choices without a lot of guess work, you should definitely give Healthy Surprise a try. Getting one of these boxes in the mail makes it feel like Christmas every month! To learn more about Healthy Surprise and all they have to offer, visit their website.
