Over the last few weeks, my friend Chelsey has been sharing her reviews of the top baby registry welcome boxes and bags. She was able to get boxes or bags from Amazon, Target, Walmart, Babylist, and Buy Buy Baby, which added up to a lot of items. Today she’s summarizing her experience and showing you her complete haul of baby items!
As I’ve already said, I’m so glad that Jenny asked me to do these reviews, because it’s been very practically helpful! Our fourth baby is due in about three months, and while he will be our fourth child, our most recent child was a girl, and our most recent boy will be 9 when the baby comes, so I don’t have a ton of gender-appropriate baby items around my house. That means anything I can get for free or almost-free feels like an amazing deal, because our other kids keep growing and needing things, too.
I’m going to give a short review of all the boxes and bags so you can get a glimpse of all of them at once, but be sure to check out the end of the post for links to the individual baby registry welcome box reviews, including exactly what I got in each welcome box or bag.
Baby Registry Welcome Box Reviews Round Up
In total I received five welcome boxes or bags from Amazon, Babylist, Buy Buy Baby, Target, and Walmart.
Below you’ll find links to all of the reviews, but overall, I got a lot of diapers, bottles, wipes, and samples of baby products (which is about what you’d expect from boxes meant for soon-to-be mom!). Once I had documented what was in each box or bag, I grouped everything together and laid them all out on my bed. It was pretty incredible to see how much I got! I ended up filling an entire large diaper box with all of the stuff I decided to keep. I ended up giving away or tossing some of the smaller samples that I knew I wouldn’t use.
Here are my snapshot reviews of the five boxes/bags I received.
Total cost: $10
Review: I loved the muslin blanket that came in the box. It was my favorite item out of all the boxes! The only downside to this box is that you do have to make a $10 purchase in order to receive the box.
Total cost: $20.49
Review: This was my least favorite of all the boxes, partly because it was the most costly of all the boxes, and partly because I knew I’d never actually use this registry because the store has a very small selection compared to the other stores.
Buy Buy Baby
Total cost: FREE
Review: The downside to this bag is that you have to actually go to the store. Otherwise, it’s worth getting.
Total cost: FREE
Review: The Target welcome bag probably had the smallest number of items and the worst selection, but it’s totally free. You do have to go to the store to get it, but since I’m in Target at least once a week, that wasn’t a huge deal.
Total cost: FREE
Review: In my opinion, this is the best of all the welcome box/bag options. Not only is it completely free, but it gets mailed directly to your house!
Overall, if I had to pick one, I’d get the Walmart box. But if I needed a lot of baby stuff, I’d go ahead and get all of the welcome boxes except for the one from Babylist. Personally, I’m excited to use all of this baby stuff with our new little guy!
