GREAT Kids Snack Box November 2015

Great Kids Snacks sends kid friendly and healthy, all natural snacks. I have no kids and subscribe to this box myself, because I enjoy the variety of snacks. They usually send a lot of bars (fruit, granola, etc.), which works with my snacking lifestyle! You can pay for this subscription with PayPal (which I love) so you can control how long you stay subscribed. No credit card is required.

This box ships out on the 22nd of the month before to insure that you get the box by the 1st of the next month. Since you get 30 snacks, the intention is that you (or your child) can have one snack per day for each day of the month! The box ships via FedEx and arrived to me in less than a week.

November Great Kids Snack Box

November Great Kids Snack Box

I was pretty happy with this box. Great Kids Snacks tends to send a lot of repeats (I’ve received more than half of these items before), but I’m OK with that since it’s usually items I like. I do wish they’d stop sending seaweed, because I don’t know too many people (and especially kids) who like it. I also don’t like the Dole oranges, because they are made in China (just a risk I’m not willing to take). I do love all the bars in this box, though, especially the 18 Rabbits Jr. and the Detour bar. I’m excited to try the new Outlaw bars that I’ve never seen before.

Surprise my Pet box

Surprise my Pet box

This month had a Halloween theme! I’m also pretty sure this was the first month Surprise My Pet used paper and a sticker. Nice touches! Watch our unboxing video HERE!

the treats

the treats

The snacks this month were all great. I do wish there had been a larger bag of treats, but my dogs love all of this stuff, so it’s OK with me!

Pawsitively Gourmet– Halloween Cookie

My dogs LOVED this! The topping is yogurt (instead of icing). A cute addition to the Halloween box!

Puptato Chips – Sweet Potato Chips (2 ounces)

These are dried, but crunchy sweet potatoes. A great, healthy snack for dogs!

Etta Says – Crunchy Rabbit Chew

We have tons of these chews in my house and love getting them in boxes. My dogs drool over these.

the toys

the toys

The toys were both appropriately themed for Halloween! My dogs rip up stuffed toys pretty quickly, but Mandela usually carries them around for a few days before he decides to destroy them. And he loves them, so I don’t mind getting them in the box (sometimes he’s not as interested in the very durable toys designed for large dogs).

Vo-Toys– Tricksters Toys in Spider and Eye

Halloween t-shirt

Halloween t-shirt

We also get a Halloween t-shirt in the box! It is an XL, but if you have a dog over 60 ish pounds, it will be too small. I appreciate the thought and idea. Mandela can wear this, though it’s a big snug across his chest. I didn’t get a photo, but check out our unboxing video (link above) to see me put it on him. I let my neighbor’s Corgi wear it and it fit him perfectly. Cute idea for Halloween and not something I’ve seen in a dog box before.

There was no product card this month with prices or information, so I don’t have prices for you. But if you do the annual plan, this box would only be $19, which is a great deal for all the goodies we got. I appreciate the attention to the theme, which is something new Surprise My Pet is introducing. Overall, I thought this was a nice box!

October Urthbox

October Urthbox

As always, I’m more than pleased with this box! It had 28 items, which is well over the promised 24 item guaranteed amount. I always find that Urthbox is high in value, quality, and variety. I can’t recommend this box enough. I’ve seen the smaller boxes and it seems like the best value is in the Small, Medium, or Large box (rather than the Mini box).

More about Urthbox: $12.99/month for mini (6+ items); $19.99/month for small (12+ items); $29.99/month for medium (17+ items); $39.99/month for large (24+ items) for 6 month subscriptions.

Torie and Howard– Chewie Fruities in Blood Orange and Honey

I’ve had this brand’s hard candy before and it’s pretty good! I love chewy candy, so I’m excited to try these. I do wish they had included a package of them and not just 3. That’s kind of lame.

Beecher's Crackers

The paper and information card were both Halloween themed and adorable this month! They always customize the sticker to match the theme, too. See our unboxing video HERE!

Zanie’s – Peek-A-Boo Toy – $8.99

This is one of those toys with the most annoyingly loud pitched squeakers ever, but the witch pops out when it gets squeaked and it’s adorable.

Griggles – Plush Pumpkin Toy – $12.99

These are moist and my dogs enjoyed them. I’m happy to see a big bag of treats in this month’s box!

Bark Bars – Ghosts and Pumpkins large bones/bookies – $4.99

These big cookies/bones are adorable and will be perfect for a rainy day or when my dogs are spending longer in their crate.

October Pet Gift Box

The total value of this month’s box is $43.95! I have been loving Pet Gift Box. After the first month’s snafu with shipping, I’ve had no issues with them since and love how thoughtfully curated everything is. I’m happy with this month’s assortment of goodies.

Peaches and Petals October 2015 (NEW Beauty Subscription Box for Women!)

Peaches and Petals is a NEW beauty subscription box for women. It’s a steal. At only $14.99/month (FREE shipping), you’ll get a variety of beauty items for women. Past items have included jewelry, makeup, hair products, an umbrella, a tote bag, and nail polish. Every month there is a guaranteed spoiler item in the box. This month’s spoiler was a tote bag and November’s spoiler is a fringe scarf in fall colors. So you basically get the featured item (which always has a higher value than the cost of the box) at a discounted price PLUS a bunch of other extra items as well. If you’ve been looking for a beauty/lifestyle box in a lower price range, this is your box! Click here to check out Peaches and Petals and to subscribe!

The size of this box was HUGE! I guess it had to fit the giant tote bag inside. It shipped UPS smart post and arrived to me in a week.

The tissue paper in this box is absolutely gorgeous and I’ll definitely be reusing it. I like that they didn’t put a sticker on it, so it’s all still in tact.

The box contained beautifully laminated information cards. If you were wondering what the spoiler scarf looks like, there it is!

nail polish, eye shadow, and exfoliant

nail polish, eye shadow, and exfoliant

All of these items came separately packaged in a box.

Sally Hansen Insta Dry – Nail polish in “Petal Pusher” – $2.99

I love that the color goes with the box name. It’s a very light nude/peach color.

Smashbox – Eye shadow trio – $28

These are muted fall colors and perfect for a neutral palate.

Barielle– Skin Polish Exfoliant – $14.99

I’ve never used anything like this. It looks like a body whip/butter, but has granulation when you put it in (the exfoliant I guess). I can’t figure out if I’m supposed to wash it off after I put it on or leave it. If you know, leave me a comment below!

postcard magnet

Anne Taintor – postcard magnet – $2.99

This is such a cute idea. You can write/send the postcard, and then the receiver can peel off the back so it becomes a magnet. How cute!

Elizabeth Arden tote bag

Elizabeth Arden tote bag

Elizabeth Arden – tote bag – $40

You can’t tell from the picture (sorry about the lighting), but the bottom is red, the middle is tan, and the top is pink. Perfect fall colors. It is shiny and waterproof, so it’s also perfect for rainy fall days! I can’t wait to start using this for school. This was the spoiler for October.

The total value of this box is $89.97! Wow. I am blown away by this box! I would have been happy paying $14.99 to get the bag. The other stuff was basically just free! I was hoping to get a piece of jewelry, so I’m crossing my fingers for November! I think you can still get this October box from Peaches and Petals through October 15th (they have 2 mail dates per month) and then you’ll get the November box and that beautiful scarf! What did you think of this box?
