A Healthy Delivery for You, or Your Mom

Unless you just had a birthday, you're a college student, or you're hooked on online shopping, it's probably been awhile since you arrived home to find a package on your doorstep. The heyday of snail mail may well be behind us, but there's still nothing quite like the feeling of getting a special delivery with your name on it. It's even more exciting when it shows up out of the blue after a long day of work.

That's exactly when my KLUTCH Club box arrived: at 6pm after a long day of writing and editing. Inside the shoebox-sized container were a few healthy lifestyle products that were already favorites, and several others that were completely new, like Tea Forte's new Skin-Smart teas (love these!), a healthy trail mix from Enjoy Life and a yoga workout DVD from Kristin McGee (a great way to end a hectic workday). My KLUTCH Club box packed in samples from nine different brands in all (including Barlean's, Shea Terra Organics and Kind Bars), plus a $25 gift certificate for Yoga Hyde clothing. In all, $50+ worth of healthy goods for $18 (the cost of a one-time KLUTCH Club delivery).

Knowing how much I loved getting my KLUTCH Club treasure chest, I have to suggest it as a Mother's Day gift for health-conscious moms. A 3-month subscription is only $17/box (shipping included in the contiguous US), so you make a $51 investment that showers your mom with three whole months of healthy treats. Gift box subscriptions like this may have been done before, but KLUTCH Clubβ€” with its mix of food, beauty and fitnessβ€” is my favorite.

One thing to note: my delivery included the amazing Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap (the company's best-selling product, I recently found out!), but it doesn't look like all of the KLUTCH Club beauty samples have an equally rigorous natural ingredient standard (May's Hydroxytone sample is not completely natural). I would ask KLUTCH Club creators, please keep your beauty products as natural & organic as possible! Natural beauty on the outside does a body good, just as much as healthy snacks and a great workout.

All in all, a fun, healthy treat that's perfect to pamper yourself or someone you love.
