  1. I love tie dye anything!!!!

  2. Well this is disappointing. I already got this as an add on last year. At the time loved it. I keep it in my car for impromptu park visits so we have something to sit on but other than that it doesn’t get much use. Mostly though, I’m disappointed because, uh, been there, done that. They’re acting like this is the first time they’ve ever had this. I want NEW, not repeats of last year’s items. I guess the longer you’re subscribed the more you’ll get the same things. Hopefully the rest of the items will be new.

  3. Glad I canceled. Not useful and very duplicative of the round towel we got last year from Pop Sugar

  4. Yup, hate it. Was debating canceling since I signed up for Cairn box–I have 0 need for beauty products and have an ever-growing swap pile, plus keep missing the “fit” that’s supposed to be there. Guess I’ll wait for the second spoiler before canceling, but not a good sign.

  5. Glad I waited for the Spoiler before I signed up – these are hideous!

  6. Huh.

  7. I love it! Beach, festivals, camping, YAY!

  8. I got a very similar item last year in one of the PS limited edition boxes and used it exactly once. I can say it was not great for picnics, as it wasn’t big enough for two people. You win some, you lose some.

    • Yeah they don’t look huge. I really prefer practical items so I’m not super happy.

  9. “Inspired by India” smh.

    • Inspired by Grandma’s doilies.

  10. In what world are these designs “inspired by India?”

    • Do they really say that? Lol

      I guess they are round and vaguely like mandalas… but yeah the pastels, navy tie dye, and fringe don’t exactly scream “India” to me.

  11. I love it. I have been wanting one of these. I have been tempered to buy one several times but didn’t. Now I wont have to because I’m getting it in the spring box. There are actually 8 different ones to pick from. that will be the struggle. Deciding which one.

    • What are you going to use it for? I’ve been reading the comments…I don’t go to the beach or swimming, I have a rectangular table, I have more throw blankets than I can count. I actually really like the look of it, but don’t know what to do with it?

      • Use it as a wall hanging?

        • Do I have a wall that big that doesn’t have pictures or something on it already? haha. Hmmm, I really like it, I think it’s cool. As long as I don’t get yellow or orange!!! I’ve been thinking about it, we have an outside couch and chair set, I think I may put it on the couch. Then if I wanted to sit on the grass with my dog I could use it for that as well. I don’t know hahaha.

    • You actually only get to pick between those three. The rest they’ll have for sale in their shop.

  12. Uck! Who are these for? I’m not that old at 31, but where would I use this? I am a mom of 2 who works full time. I also live no where near any hippy music festivals and never go to the beach.

    This is going to have to be gifted to someone… but I have no idea who would even use it.

    Very disappointed this is the main item of the box.

  13. This falls under ‘something I’d only use if I got in a box.’ I would never buy this or seek it out, but I can see when I whip it out at the beach or pool this summer with my kids, everyone saying “ooooo, where’d you get that?”

    • Exactly.

  14. I must be the total minority. I think they all look terrible.

    • It’s okay Hillary I think the yellow one is so freakin ugly I really hope I don’t get that one. Some of the other 5 in the video were nicer than these ones, but think the tie-dye is the best looking one out of the 3, but still kinda ugly. Oh well. πŸ˜›

    • Me too. I mean come on really…… what the heck am I supposed to use this for? And I bet it takes up a big portion of the price of the box… not thrilled at all in the first spoiler…😣

      • I think some of the patterns look nice (seafoam green in a barely-there print is almost always good for me), but I’m a little disappointed at the concept. It looks pretty thin, so can you really use it as a towel? Or a blanket? They suggested hanging it as a tapestry on your wall in the video. Lol sorry I graduated from college a few years ago, I’m not looking for $50 sheets to drape in my dorm room…

        • Hahahah! You’re hilarious! But one the real, I’ll take it from you…I only just graduated college haha

          • Haha thanks πŸ™‚ tbh I felt a little embarrassed for them, like this is exactly what my freshman year roommate did. There are some great things about college, but girls spending a ton of money to show their hippie ~free spirit~ isn’t one I miss.

            – Sincerely, a girl who had a wall hanging in college (though mine was cheap!)

        • Wow! Thanks for the link. That is very inexpensive, and I prefer that particular pattern more than the three that we are likely going to be able to choose from.

          I was going to use the one I will be getting as a table cloth (I have a round table that gets dusty between uses)…but apart from the tie-dye design (which my husband will not like) I think they are quite unattractive.

          I was so excited when I made the decision to sub to FFF…but I think this box will be going on my (growing) cancelled sub list in the very near future.

        • They have tons of them on ebay for around $10.00. Lots of different patterns and they look about the same size. I was so excited to subscribe, but between this and the lip product and jewelry spoilers, I sadly have to cancel. πŸ™

        • https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01A5OYPLK?psc=1

          This one looks like exact one, and it is soo cheap. Not sure what these two girls on video raving about.
          Amy, at least yours looks pretty sophisticated with these pattern

          • Both of those roundies are way prettier than the three to choose from…one even looks like peacock feathers…added them to my cart and are debating about both…definitely swapping the roundie I get…funny thing is…I’m not select and I couldn’t care less about the roundie choice or lip kit because I don’t want either I only want the jewelry and I already chose both so I’m good. I mainly like FFF for their add-ons but I’m gonna be spending another $150 ish bucks again because their add-ons are so addictive but I need to stop so I might need to cancel after this…my appt is becoming a mess. πŸ˜›

    • This is terrible! What is it? I don’t like either print and can’t believe they choose this item for the box. Not impressed!

      • I thought I was the only one. Its just not me at all. If it was towel-like I could see using it at the pool or even as tablecloth, maybe, if I had a round table. I will say this – it wasn’t enough to make me want to continue my sub.

    • Me too. Wouldn’t wear any of them, hang them up? Um. No. Also betting high price tag/takes up a small amount of room = more room for add-ons you pay for!

      • Watched video. Couldn’t stop thinking: “tablecloth”. None match my decor.
        Crossing my fingers for the rest of the items!

        • I know, I was right there with you. I even asked on the live video if it was a tablecloth. πŸ™‚

    • I’d love to swap for yours!! ❀️

    • I agree. File this in the “I don’t need it, never knew it was a ‘thing’ category.”

  15. I think my fave add-on item shown here is the bag. It’s just so cute and practical.

    Really can’t decide which roundie is my fave! I think they’d all look so cute as blankets or shawls.

  16. They said Select can make their choice starting Thursday. Does anyone know when you have to make your choice by? I plan to upgrade my subscription around the first of March. I’m new to FFF (still waiting for my Editor’s Box to arrive), but clearly this is a membership where it pays to go all in.

    • Since the Editors Box is your first box, you will not get this Spring Box. You will get the Editors box this March as your first box and then the Summer Box in June, then Fall, then Winter and so on… That is how it worked back in December. I didn’t get the Dec 2016 Winter box. I got the Editors Box, now I will get this Spring Box. I hope that makes sense.

      • Not true! You got the editors box because winter box was sold out. Everyone who got the editors box is automatically put in for spring unless they cancel.

        For some reason, winter box sold out in October. So a lot of people missed out on winter and got editor instead.

      • I just reached out to customer service and I signed up for the Editor’s box on January 18. They said I will be getting the spring box as well, so 2 boxes in March. Hope this helps.

    • Unless you ordered the Editors box in a separate deal… Not sure when you signed up obviously! It is all fun. I love the Popsugar box that comes monthly too.

    • Ya, the comment about you not getting the Spring box since you got the Editor box is not true. I just signed up with the Galentine’s special and my Editor’s box is supposed to show up today and my account shows my Spring box “pending.” I also just upgraded to an annual membership the other day and it seemed to update immediately after my credit card was charged (I had access to add-ons, etc immediately). So I’m guessing here but since add-ons are open until March 4, it’s probably a safe bet that you will be able to upgrade until then for the Spring box?!?!? The FAQ show priority billing on March 6 too….I tried to do quite a bit of research before I took the plunge too. πŸ˜‰

  17. Finally caved and got an annual subscription. I have been eyeing some add-ons and several that I wanted were no longer available today! So the early access to those will be nice. I’m not sure yet which roundie I want, but it’ll still be nice to choose.

    I REALLY wanted that mini Herbivore face mist to have while traveling. And the Marrakesh mini kit. And that black and grey scarf – it looks so soft!! πŸ™ Oh well.

    I’ve been subscribing to FabFitFun for several years, and there is always at least one thing that I really love, and then I have a bunch of other things I can give for gifts. The rest are things I enjoy and do end up using. A lot of it is so practical, like the beach bag and yoga towel from the summer box, as well as the atmosphere protection cream. The Fall box was probably my favorite of all time. Wasn’t as jazzed about the Winter box overall but I got some excellent gifts out of it and did love the tangerine body butter (smells so yummy and absorbs well too).

    • Jen, to make you feel better, the Marrakesh kit was not available from the beginning. I even contacted customer service begging them to give me one. They guy checked and said that it is actually not sold out, but they are out of inventory. Hopefully they will get some in Summer adds on.

      • Thanks for letting me know! That does make me feel better.

        • I’m a select member so have had access to add-ons for two weeks. I’m off work due to illness at the moment so have a lot of time on my hands. What I’ve discovered is that fabfitfun appears to sell blocks of a particular add-on. They’ll wait a day or three and then have the item available again. They’ll also change the thumbnail image frequently to make you double check if it’s a new item. What I’m saying is persistence pays off sometimes. It’s how I ended up with the Marrakesh tin set. Hope this helps.

          • Rebekah, I am checking this set since day one, multiple times a day, and I even contacted customer service. No luck. I really want this set πŸ™

  18. I hope I get ANY pattern, except for Tie Dye…. I’m using mine as a table cloth! It will look beautiful with my Temptation bakeware that I keep on my table! So excited!!!

    • I am SO glad you said that, I have Temptations as well and that is a great idea to use together!!! Thanks for the idea!!!

    • Geordana I’m actually hoping I receive the tie dye. Maybe if I receive one of the other options and you get the tie dye, would you be willing to trade?

  19. Sooo excited!! This spoiler finally got me to cave and subscribe! I can’t wait

  20. I suddenly need this in my life. Actually, I “need” like 10 of them. Awesome spoiler!

  21. I NEED that tie dye roundie 😍 When is the deadline for signing up for select? I just ordered the Editor’s box for 50% off last week, so this will be my first FabFitFun seasonal box!

    • I think selections start on Thursday so you should have time still to make the deadline

    • Hi Chrystal, Where did you find the Editor’s box for 50% off?

  22. There’s only three designs which I really do not like (which means i’ll probably get one of those Lol) but I don’t care enough about it to upgrade. I’ll probably just try to swap/exchange for one of my preferred designs.

  23. Did you see the update? Selections open on Thursday. We will get one more spoiler tonight. And a clarification, at least I didn’t catch it from the first Live, select members can choose from just those 3 designs. Others can be purchased at a select only sale coming up in the Spring.

  24. Ah I’m not really excited about this spoiler since I don’t really need one; however if it’s made by women in developing countries I’m happy to support =)

    • I agree 100%

  25. Ugh, so I just watched a video on Facebook and Select members only get to pick between the three shown in stock images here. Why did they even bother to show the other five? I really wanted the purple.

    • That is really confusing, didn’t they say we have 8 options to choose from?

      • Yes they did! πŸ™ But you can buy one of the other options at a “members only” price later (they didn’t say when they were going to put them up for sale, but I don’t think they will be added as add-ons)

        • They stated that the full line would go up for sale for the Spring selections. But that is so fare away, goodness know that will prob change also.

        • They stated that the full line would go up for sale for the Spring add ons. But that is so fare away, goodness know that will prob change also.

      • I didn’t watch the full video, but Melody said the other five will be sold in a select only sale. Super dumb because they made it seem like all eight were options.

    • Yeah, that was incredibly misleading. She totally said you could choose from all 8 designs. Now I don’t feel so bad about not being elite status (or whatever they call it) and it also explains why girl 1 kept going on about the tie dye. It was pretty annoying.

    • I loved the purple too!

    • Seriously? I love purple and was so excited that it was an option for once! I’m so disappointed now. Will the boxes only come with those 3 colors? Or are other subscribers potentially going to get the other colors.

      I like tie dye, but I hate that navy is the only color that it’s fashionable in. It’s like the fashion world can only like two “unusual” things at once (I can also find white marble everything…).

    • I feel they duped me into getting an annual subscription. There are 8 choices for those rags and they only gave us the choice of 3 of them? I would have liked to have had the seafoam green one. It seems you pay an annual price and then promote those add ons!

      But all reality I am so over those round things. I have one from Popsugar and it is useless.

  26. I like them all! Glad I signed back up for this box!

  27. PSA: Hey Liz FFF has opened up the Add-ons to all members since 7 pm Central time today. πŸ˜€

  28. Uh-oh….I like at least 3 of them and think they will make greAt, unusual gifts! Even for Christmas. But will they offer all the designs they showed in the video and will they offer the individual roundies as add-ons later?? The colors make me happy!

  29. Ooo, I’m probably going to pick the purple one. It’s really pretty! Glad I wasn’t the only one who didn’t know what a roundie was though.

  30. Did they say exactly when, as in what time, the select options will open?

  31. How does this compare to the round towel that was in the popsugar resort box last year? The fabric looks a bit thinner…

    • Yep, this one is thinner and more of a blanket than a towel, so it won’t be as absorbent, but on the flip side, it will be much easier to pack in a bag! πŸ™‚ Hope that helps!

  32. Can’t complain. Can’t wait make selections tomorrow!!!

  33. I had no idea that I need a roundie…or that they even existed…but that’s all changed. Might have to bite the bullet on this one.

  34. Blue one for sure. So glad I signed up for annual so I can pick the designs I like!

  35. What’s the RV on this round thingy? The Gypsy05 site is overloaded so nothing is coming up…

    • I’d love to know as well! Couldn’t find it for sale on line.

  36. If anyone wants to get the blue one and swap me my profile is attached to my name! I don’t sub to this box anymore

    • Oops, now it’s attached!

  37. Love the spoiler! I just ordered the Editor’s box last week for the $24.99 special so I’m excited to have both boxes coming soon!

    • Me too! Does anyone know when the editor’s box will ship out? They’re not going to wait till they ship the spring box, are they? I was hoping I could cancel without jeopardizing the editor’s box.

  38. I have the “Empire” roundy from last springs box and it’s awesome! I NEED the tie dye one in my life! πŸ˜‰ <3

  39. I want the tye dye one! Its perfect for my upcoming vaca!

    • Yay!! 😎

  40. choosing the last one:)

    • Me too! This is my first time to select and I can’t wait to see what else is in store for us.

  41. I’m not really psyched about this roundie spoiler but this box is always awesome and I’m sure I will give in shortly.

  42. This spoiler item is a little ho-hum for me…can’t wait to see more spoilers for this box! FFF has been on a roll lately πŸ˜‰

  43. Add me to the list of people who had no idea what a “roundie” was
    πŸ˜‰

    • I have no idea what it is either! Ugh

  44. Oh my gosh the the dye one 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 super excited now

  45. thank goodness, I’m not the only one who didn’t know what a roundie was! this will be my first FFF box, i’m hoping the next spoilers will be items that I am familiar with….

  46. Hi Liz, could you please tell us more about the fabric? Is it a towel or a blanket?

    • It’s more of a thin blanket than a towel. I’ll reach out to get more details on the fabric!

      • Thank you πŸ™‚

    • Carmen~
      I got the “Empire” one last spring{it’s awesome!} It is about the weight of an extra thick sheet~and it’s 100% cotton. It’s one of those items you didn’t know you needed until you get it! πŸ™‚

  47. This is the second time they’ve included a brand with the g-word racial slur in their name. :/

    • This was my first thought, too!!! So disappointing & annoying.

    • Isn’t “Gypsy” more of a cultural than racial identifier??? I mean, why is this offensive??

      • Thank you! Yes it’s absolutely more cultural, referring to a way of life and not a specific group, gypsies can be identified in about every country.

        • πŸ™‚

      • No. “Romani” is the culture, whose people have been the target of literal genocide & cultural genocide multiple times throughout history. Many Romani people have spoken about how the “g*psy” stereotype is still harmful to them in their daily lives.

    • I dont think it is a slur at all. There is famous band Gypsy King, and nothing slur about their name.

      • ^^^ YES ^^^ Not every thing HAS to be an insult or racial slur….

        • Except “gypsy” is an ethnically charged word. What Marion said is true. Perhaps many Americans simply aren’t aware that it is a slur for an ethnic group who to this day are still oppressed throughout much of Europe. In America the word is (unfortunately) used akin to “free-spirited.” However, this latter usage is problematic as it reduces the _actual lived experience of an entire race of people_ into a fun lifestyle choice. The website for this “Gypsy 05” company is a great example of this obliviousness- the site is full of pictures of white women in flowy tops and dresses, frolicking in the sand with dreamcatchers (because, apparently, why not maximize the cultural appropriation?)

          Just because you are unaware of or personally unaffected by a word doesn’t mean it’s not a slur.

          • I wish I could like your comment. πŸ™‚ You are forgetting that all the conventionally attractive thin white women are also wearing $200 dresses. Nothing “bohemian” (much less “gypsy!”) about that…

            I wish people would just listen and accept that a word is offensive to a group. Is defending your right to use racist language the hill you want to die on? Let’s just respect each other.

      • Svetlana, there are many Romani people who have been affected by this term & have spoken/written about why it is harmful to them. It is an easy thing to Google.

        • Marion, gypcies are not just Romanian. There a lot of them in Bolgaria, Italy (have you heard about famous book and opera Karmen? She was gypsy). In Russia there a lot of gypsies (tsigane) and they proudly call themselves like this. It is a culture and it is way of life. When we say “gypsy” nobody thinks about Romanians, people think about culture in general

          • “Romani” and “Romanian” are not the same thing. A 2 minute google search is definitely worth your time here.

          • Agreed! Svetlana πŸ™‚

  48. What is a roundie tho

  49. What exactly is this? Can’t really tell. This will be my first box besides editor’s. Thanks

    • It’s a thin blanket that can be used as a beach blanket, a picnic blanket, a shawl, a tapestry, etc. Hope that helps a bit! πŸ™‚

      • Helps a lot! Thanks. They are all beautiful. Even more excited for beach weather now!!

      • Hi Liz! Any idea of the blanket’s size? Just curious :). Thanks!

        • I’m reach out and ask!

  50. Um, what’s a roundie?
