Citrus Lane Giveaway: Positive Thoughts in a Box

Citrus Lane Logo

Thank you to Citrus Lane for providing me with this opportunity to review a Citrus Lane gift box. While this post is sponsored, the opinions expressed here are completely my own.


In the year it took us to get pregnant with Katie, I resisted the temptation to buy anything tangible for a baby.

I worried that such a simple act would somehow jinx us.

Over the span of that year, I sat in what would be the nursery, and read a book on pregnancy…the one baby-related thing that I allowed myself to buy.

I’ve had friends tell me that they’ve purchased everything from baby clothes to cribs before they were even pregnant. Their reasoning? That the power of positive thinking would bring them a baby.

And now as I watch the months fly by, I think that there might be something to that.

My dear friend Tonya often talks to me about when…not if…we get pregnant. Her positive thoughts bring me so much peace and often keep me from losing hope.

So, when I was approached to do a giveaway for an amazing Deluxe Shower gift box from Citrus Lane, I threw caution to the wind and agreed.

I thought, at the very least, I would have an opportunity to review a lovely product and share it with one of my readers. At most? It would bring me some positive energy.

When my box arrived, I was swoony over its contents.

I pulled out item after gorgeous item, each more amazing than the previous.

citrus lane, Cloud B Sleep Sheep rattle, Minted gift card, Swaddle Designs Swaddle BlanketWhat’s in the box?

  • A super soft SwaddleDesigns Marquisette Swaddle Blanket
  • A Pearhead Babyprints Tin (I’ve always wanted to do one of these!)
  • The most adorable Green Sprouts Organic Cotton Mitts
  • Canopy Cards Baby Love Letter (perfect for capturing one of those small moments!)
  • The sweetest Cloud B Sleep Sheep Rattle
  • The loveliest Zoe Organics Mommy-to-be Bath Tea
  • $50 Minted Gift Card (perfect for those birth announcements!)
This is the perfect box for a shower gift. I like to give a variety of items as a shower gift, but it takes me forever to choose them and often requires trips to multiple stores. I love that these items are hand selected and just perfect.
One of the coolest things about Citrus Lane is that you can choose to give one box or order a subscription for multiple boxes. It’s like a fruit of the month club, but way better.
And now, I have a Deluxe Shower Box for one of you!

    Nichole, I think you should buy whatever you want to buy (baby related) within reason. I wouldn't redo an entire nursery or pick out an entire clothing line but if you see something here or there on sale and you can't help but want it, just buy it. Buy it and put it away in a closet with a hopeful sigh. If the day comes when you can take it out and use it, amazing. If a day comes when you have decided to stop trying and you are in the right frame of mind, give it away happily and pat yourself on the back for purchasing it long ago with the best of intentions. And be proud of yourself that you could gift such a wonderful thing to someone else. Even if it's something as simple as a pink onesie or a pair of shoes.

    Been there. Done that. Big hugs!

    We are currently in our 4th month of trying for our first (verdict is still out for this month!) and what you wrote just hit home for me so much. Even before we were trying, I tried not to buy things or think about it too much for the same reason. Thank you so much for posting this. Hope is so important.

    Dealing with infertility, we were the same way – wanting to be very careful about jinxing everything by prematurely buying baby stuff – even though we were trying. But then, when we decided to adopt, we had the very real possibility that we'd be called in the middle of the night – a child would have been born, the mother didn't want to parent, and we were "up."

    So, we had to have the nursery prepared.

    And we had to leave the door closed.

  74. @fourkidslater

    It took us 7 yrs to get pregnant the first time.Went through fertility treatments that didn’t work and then gave up. A month later I was pregnant. My husband was so nervous he would barely talk about the pregnancy for fear that it would jinx us. Now our fourth is 3 months old.
