DOTTIE BOX MINI JANUARY 2016 - info

Every Dottie Box Mini comes with a little card listing the items featured for the month.

DOTTIE BOX MINI JANUARY 2016 - items 1

Flutterfly Scrubs Green Apple Lip Scrub – .5 oz, value: $6?

Lip scrubs are something I like getting in subscription boxes because they’re not something I would normally buy (I love lip scrubs, but when I need one I’m more likely to mix sugar and coconut oil in my hand for it instead of go pay for one). The green apple flavor is interesting. It seems a little young of a flavor for me, but I will still use this.

Oragami Love Note – value: $3

This is a cute little note, but I wouldn’t personally pay $3 for it. It’ll get added to a gift though.

Then there was this little package inside!

Good Eats Mini Desk Calendar – value: $7

DOTTIE BOX MINI JANUARY 2016 - items 4

This calendar is so cute! I love the dessert theme.

DOTTIE BOX MINI JANUARY 2016 - items 5

Dottie Box sent one of these calendars in the full-size box this month, but I like this one better. The theme is cute and I like how each month is different with this one.

Art Goodies Coupon

I appreciate coupons as bonuses but am not personally a fan of them being included as a “featured item” unless they’re straight up gift card codes.

Verdict: The value of this month’s mini Dottie Box comes out to $16, which isn’t great. This month isn’t a huge hit for me, personally, but I’ll still use each item so I’m not super bummed.

What do you think about this month’s mini Dottie Box?

  1. This was my first box and I immediately cancelled.

  2. I was really disappointed this month, but it’s the first time I didn’t love everything, so I can’t complain.

  3. i wasn’t crazy about this box, either. I have enough calendars now that I’m running out of places to put them.
