Holiday Shopping with Kidbox

IMG_5248

I love the idea of helping others when I’m making a purchase, so this year I ordered from Kidbox knowing that I’d be providing clothing to a child in need.

It's not always easy shopping for children - they don’t want to go to the store, they hate trying stuff on, you end up running back and forth to make exchanges and returns. It's a hassle. I actually enjoy shopping for my children, so I took the plunge this year and placed an order. I felt like I had nothing to lose with free shipping both ways and only having to pay for what we keep. Each box comes with 6 - 7 items with a cost of $98 (the prices are listed for what you keep - but it's $98 if you keep all). I had fun filling out his profile, such as his size and what he likes. I especially like that they ask what to avoid, since both my kids hate jeans and I don’t like big logos plastered across their clothing.

I couldn’t wait to get our box and I loved the packaging when it came! I’m a sucker for good packaging - in fact it's how I choose my wine! I was really excited about a few of the pieces and not so thrilled with the others. I felt like the stylist didn’t quite listen to my requests, as some of the clothing had big logos. I was mostly pleased with a hooded sweatshirt that I don't think I would have found on my own, along with one of the t-shirts that was super soft. Of everything that came in this box, I kept those two items.

Ultimately, the pieces I kept were amazing, so I was disappointed that I didn’t love every item. I placed an order for a holiday gift for my Godson and am planning on trying it out next for my 9-year-old daughter as well. It was entirely hassle-free, which was fantastic. This is such a fun, easy gift idea for a special child in your life - happy shopping!
