Subscription services are the hottest thing right now — whether you want beauty products or cleaning materials delivered to your doorstep. And it’s an especially awesome gift idea for a new mom, considering there are a variety of subscription boxes targeted to babies and toddlers.
So instead of giving one baby shower gift, sign her (or yourself) up for a 3-, 6-, or 12-month subscription — sending a box of goodies every month.
Take a look at some of my favorites:

If you’re determined to keep the number of toys to a level of “manageable,” consider signing up for Spark Box. You’ll get four high-quality toys each month — and then after a month of playing, when the novelty has worn off, you can ship them back for another box of new toys. It’s also a unique opportunity to see which toys are actually worth buying.
