If you've been following my blog for any period of time, you would know that I absolutely love "monthly boxes" as baby shower and new baby gifts. I absolutely squealed with delight when I heard about WittleBee, a truly unique monthly subscription that combines my two of my favorite things: clothing and babies! For $39.99 a month (even less with a several month subscription), you get a box full of "basics" for your baby or child (up to size 5T) worth about $100. What do I mean by basics? Shirts, shorts, onesies, leggings, etc. that can easily be worked into your child's wardrobe. The idea isn't to take the fun out of shopping for those cute little outfits, but to supply you with the basics on a regular basis.
Even though these are "basics" to supplement your child's wardrobe, they aren't just any old pieces of clothing. When you sign up for WittleBee, you start by filling out a "style profile" with your child's age, size, gender, and style preferences. A "stylist" will then contact you to flesh out your preferences even more. The box I received was based on a "hipster" profile, and I have to say that I love every single piece. I was especially excited to see a Star Wars onesie since that would be traditionally considered a "boy" item; I specifically requested less "girly" items since Lucia only gets girly, girly, girly (pink, pink, pink) outfits from family and friends.
What makes WittleBee unique? WittleBee takes the difficulty out of clothing your child without taking out the fun and style. Because I was able to pick my style preferences, I still felt like I had a hand in picking out the clothes, yet I also had such a fun surprise in opening up the box. I love that WittleBee sends the "basics". I still get tons of outfits as gifts from family and friends, but 90% of them are fancy and frilly, not really fit for my little one to crawl around and play in. This makes a great gift for new parents because clothing is an ongoing need and expense since babies are outgrowing their clothing quicker than you can buy them more. It's obviously a great deal as well ($100 worth of clothes for $40).
2 pairs of leggings
1 pair of shorts
Some of them are brands that I've never heard of, while others are brands that I know and love (Tea, Old Navy, Carters). I was very pleased to notice that all the items in the box were a little on the larger size - some fit right away, some she needed to grow into, but none were too small. Although the items came in a variety of colors and prints, I was able to easily incorporate them into Lucia wardrobe. A few of the pieces (like the Tea onesie below) have become our our favorite go-to clothing items.

My verdict: WittleBee provides an incredible service to families by regularly providing them with wardrobe basics during those early years when children are constantly outgrowing their clothing. They do this at a great value and in such a fun manner! You won't believe how exciting it is to receive your box in the mail, open it, and pull out your child's cute new wardrobe one piece at a time. I would recommend WittleBee, without reservations, to anyone looking for a unique yet highly useful gift to someone with small children or a baby on the way or to a mom who looking for a few ways to find extra time.
