Max Your New B.F.F. sent out a few coupons in my last box, and included a few this month as well. I enjoy getting the coupons, but I rarely add them in to the value of the box. This month I received coupons for Nashelle and Chatbooks.
July's DIY - Mail a FlipFlop Kit - $3.00?
Max Your New B.F.F. includes DIY activities in their monthly boxes. This month the DIY was to mail a flip flop. I received a black Sharpie and a green flip flop. This is a neat idea, but I found it a bit lacking. Since there were no instructions (and granted, you need few instructions), I didn't know how much postage to purchase, and had difficulty writing on the flip flop or getting anything to stick. If you received this box, here's a pretty good tutorial on how to mail a flip flop!
Monkey Mat - $19.99
This company was featured on Shark Tank for this product. The portable mat is 5 feet by 5 feet, and zips into a small pouch that is very lightweight. I love the color I received! The fabric is as lightweight as they claim, and I can absolutely see how this would be handy for mothers with young children, or just anyone that needs a lightweight 'portable floor' to take with them!
I think this is a perfect inclusion for a summer box - this is exactly what you need for a picnic, outdoor sports events, or just laying out in the sun reading a book!
I received this exact scrub in my April My Texas Market box. I loved it then and I still love it now! I am happy to have more of it, since I am almost out of my first tub.
This smells exactly like fresh strawberries. Keep in mind that the scrub needs to be stirred prior to using, and that there are pieces of strawberries in the scrub. The oils from the scrub were so moisturizing and the sugar is a gentle way to exfoliate.
Big Brother Can Cooler - $2.00
This was a kind of odd inclusion to the box for me. I don't watch TV, so maybe I just don't get why someone would need a can cooler from a TV show...
In any event, it's a nice size can cooler, and seems to work perfectly fine!
Verdict: The value of this box is about $32.99, which definitely exceeds the cost of the box. I think this is a decent box because the scrub and the Monkey Mat are something that almost anyone can use. If I'm completely honest, the can cooler and the DIY flip flop cheapened the box for me a bit, but that's probably just my own opinion.
