Gift Genie Express is not a typical subscription box. In fact it isn’t a subscription box at all! Gift Genie Express sells a variety of curated gift boxes made by Mom owned small businesses. Most of which use all natural ingredients. Perfect as a gift for a new Mom or as a treat yo’ self present – we were lucky enough to review the Breastfeeding Support Box! This box is $39.99. Gift Genie has so many other awesome options as well, The Anti-Stress Box, Teacher Appreciation, and Build a Box just to name a few!

Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Breastfeeding Support Box
Everything that we received in our box! Amazing array of items!
Some items we are familiar with and some that are new to us. We’re not sure if we’ve expressed our stance on breastfeeding here before but it’s something we feel very strongly about. As a four time fifteen month breastfeeder we love knowing about new products and sort of consider ourselves well versed in this area!
So what is all this stuff?
Our thank you for supporting small!
You are so welcome!
Marley’s Monsters Nursing Pads
How cool is this pattern? Not only is this a really modern and fun spin on nursing pads it’s also thick and durable!
The fleece wicks and absorbs moisture away from skin and the heavy fabric outer layer keeps leaks at bay!
Love these, check out their many wonderful items in their Etsy Shop
Little Sunshine Boutique Teething Necklace
Love this teething necklace for a number of reasons. Number 1: Color is on point! Number 2: It comes sealed
Number 3: And quite arguably the most important characteristic, is that this is a strand of beads, there are no gaps where there is just string. String and babies makes us muchas scared! We’ve seen and even own a couple teething necklaces that have exposed string. We feel a lot more comfortable using one like this! Check out their Mother’s Day Sale
Lotus Bud Tea & Spice Co.
Budding Lotus Milk Tea
This is the first we’ve gotten to try out a milk tea (to aid in your milk supply)
This loose leaf tea contains Red Raspberry Leaf, Fennel Seed, Nettle Leaf, Fenugreek Seed, Dandelion Leaf, and Blessed Thistle
It’s a particularly seedy mixture and one of the seemingly common threads in products that aid in milk supply seems to be Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle – both of which are in this tea!
Green + Lovely Nipple Balm
This store has an amazing selection of items, we could window shop there for days!
This Nipple Balm is super moisturizing and doesn’t need to be wiped off before feedings!
This rich buttery formula is infused with Calendula petals for it’s antibacterial properties and because of the natural ingredients and fragrance free mixture this is great for those of us with sensitive skin!
Where was this when we had little babies? Perfect for remembering which side is up! Just clip these on the side you want to nurse from next and you never have to wonder if baby is eating enough! Perfect for a new Mom! Love the gold tones that we received as well!
These clips are so pretty! They make breastfeeding glamourous!
We have to admit this is a new concept for us and we are glad to have found out about it!
A discount for future purchases in their shop was included as well!
Eat Local Decal
Our favorite item in this box! Perfect way to plant the seed! We’ll probably be applying this to our Mom Mobile!
Milk & Cookies Lactation Boosting Mix-In
This mix in is great for baking mixtures and smoothies. A mix of Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, Brewers Yeast and Flax Seed we are definitely going to be giving this a try as soon as possible!
We received enough for two servings in this pouch
So in summary
Wow! Where to start with this amazing box! We love the premise, breastfeeding can be a lonely time. It can be particularly confusing and trying at the start and we always urge the ladies we know to go to at least 3 months because after that it gets much easier! We think a box like this may inspire Mom’s to continue on their breastfeeding journey, Everything in here is not only amazing and fabulous but it also reminds us that we aren’t in this alone!
We can’t recommend this box enough – for yourself or for a friend this is an excellent assortment of breastfeeding goodies and essentials. Perfect for new Moms and Old Timers alike!
