April Box - "Mama Needs to Smile"

We’re at the 1 year mark since COVID made our world shut down. Wearing masks used to be illegal and strange; now it is the norm for the foreseeable future. And although we know masks are vital and now part of our life, they hide something far more important; your beautiful face and smile. And we miss it. Mama Needs to Smile will be a box full of products and inspiration to keep you grinning from ear to ear.

Order by March 31st to get this box!

Mama Needs Box answered...December 2020

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for your message! We have a few things in our Shop that you could give for Christmas! We have one past box available, plus other small gifts. While we are still ahead of the Christmas cut-off date for shipping, I cannot guarantee it will arrive in time. You can access our Shop at our website and click on "shop" in the top menu (mamaneedsbox . com)

Mama Needs Box answered...February 2021

Hi Chelsey, thank you for asking! While some of our products have been organic in the past and will be in the future, we do not include organic items in every box.

Q: Can this be purchased for just one month without signing up for a subscription? If so, where can I get more details on that? Thanks!Asked by Maria A., January 2020

Mama Needs Box answered...January 2020

Hi Maria! Absolutely! On the right side of this listing you'll see a box and you can choose "subscribe now" or "give as a gift". Choose the gift option. Then choose "month-to-month" and when you get to the check out screen you will see a box to check whether you want it renewing or non-renewing. Hope that helps! -Jenn

Hi Dannie - we typically only put chocolate in the box during the colder months of the year from November - April or so. But there is not chocolate in every box. Hope that helps! -Jenn

I love the Mama Needs box!!! I will admit that I signed up thinking I'd only do it for a few months and then cancel, but I now look forward to it every month. I love that each box is a surprise and packed with items from mama-run stores. It's a good mix of consumable items and fun things I don't usually spend money on for myself. I also love the playlist that comes with each box that keeps my Spotify queue fresh. I can honestly say I am slowly learning to treat myself better and intentionally practice self-care because of this monthly box.

I have been subscribed to this box for 3 months now (June - August 2020). Each box that I receive brings me so much joy. The curation is thoughtful and fun, the quality of products is high, and the owner (Jenn) is kind and communicates well. I am so happy that I found this box. If I could only purchase one box, this would be the one!

Hi Melissa! Thank you for your review! We try really hard to make sure the items in the box can work for most Mamas and are high quality. If you don't like coffee, consider paying it forward to another Mama you think might! You can log in to your account and change the address or skip or cancel anytime!

Perfect Box for this Mom of 4

This box is PERFECT for me and came at the PERFECT time after a sleepless night with a sick kiddo! It was amazing to have something just for me to look forward to opening! As a mom of 4 kiddos, the Mama Needs to Dream box was water to a weary soul. I was SO refreshed by the book Big Magic and love that journal & pencils were even included so I could start putting my creative dreams on paper inspired by reading the book. The facemasks & lip balm were an amazing added touch! My box came 2 days from when my order was placed. Everything included in the box is for sure worth the price paid. The thought and care put into this box for us mamas is so obvious and appreciated! I am so excited for my next one as well as gifting them to my other mama friends!!

Thank you Shannon for your kind words and review! It makes us so incredibly happy to know that this box was just what you needed at just the right time!

Nice box. Just a little too much run of the mill items that are in every subscription box. I didn't feel like a lot of thought went into this box as far as the "Cozy" theme and self care. Maybe could use less Candy, body butter and more actual self care items. I thought it was something different than what was received.

Hi Karen, I am so sorry that the December box did not meet your expectations. What you purchased was our December "Mama Needs Some Cheer" box which was full of products to help bring you some holiday cheer. The cocktail gummy bears were inside because it was also our 2 year anniversary box. The inserted card has our theme on it and lists each product inside. Our November box was our "cozy" box. So I can understand why you thought you would be receiving something else. I can assure you, as the owner of the box, that lots of care, thought, and curation goes into each box and theme. Thank you for your feedback and Merry Christmas!

LOVE IT!!

I have received a couple Mama Needs boxes and I love the idea of receiving a “fun-filled” box of surprises delivered right to my door with the concept of taking time for me! I have 5 children, work full time and have a crazy schedule so the thought of going to the store to buy fun things for myself rarely {to never} happens! Jenn sends surprises to me {who doesn’t love surprise snail mail} and I can just sit back, relax and enjoy!

Mama Needs Box said...May 19, 2020

Yes! We do it all for you - thanks for sharing how it's a great solution for busy Mamas!

I wish I could remember who told me about these boxes or how I discovered them but it was a great thing. Love all the thought and details that Jenn puts in each month's box. Each month is so different that I make sure and hide any spoilers so I can be truly surprised when it comes in the mail. Most of the items are perfect for myself but if I won't use them then I find them to be great gifts for the other mamas(especially my friends) in my life.

I so appreciate the time Jen puts into these boxes. I have purchased some for myself and for gifts. There is always high quality products with a well thought out theme. I have also sent many for gifts. I know when I send one the receiver will not be disappointed. I really appreciate that she supports other small business'.

I gave myself the gift of a 3 month subscription and loved opening them! My favorite item is one I use every night - an eye pillow from Luxury Therapeutic! It’s like a spa for your eyes :)
