The box came with this information card. This month, the theme was “fire rescue.”
Pet Gift Box Window Decals (2 pack) – Value $6 (?)
I did need something like this. In addition to Nyx and the cats, I have 7 small birds (2 cockatiels, 2 parakeets, and 3 zebra finches) and a Russian tortoise. (That is actually low for me. I’ve been upwards of 50 animals in the past…) These are custom printed for Pet Gift Box so I just looked this type of item up online and took a quick average price.
Multipet Fire Hydrant Dog Toy – Value $9.18
We’ve had a couple of these fire hose material dog toys in the past. Nyx likes them and they hold up pretty well, although they are not indestructible. (Nyx’s favorite fire hydrant has to be the real one in our front yard, though. She spends a LONG time sniffing that every morning.)
Pride Bites Fire Hydrant – Value $9.99
This had a sticker that said “awarded best dog toy.” Sometimes I wonder who does the awarding? (It didn’t say.) Nyx did like this, though (see below).
Big Bakes Blueberry Cheesecake Treat (5.2 oz) – Value $3.49
We got this in another box this month, too. Both boxes even arrived on the same day. This one was shrink wrapped so it didn’t elicit quite the same response from the cats (it has herring in it). I will be passing it on to another dog who will love it, since they do contain wheat (Nyx can’t have grain).
Off Leash Smoky Beef Recipe Treats (5.29 oz) – Value $5.99
These are grain free and made/sourced in Canada by a small company. They have buckwheat flour (buckwheat isn’t a grain) and otherwise also pretty good ingredients (and no soy either). Once I am done adjusting Nyx’s medicine (we are adding fish oil to help with a skin condition), I may let her try these, as she has been OK with beef in the past.
Nyx liked the stuffed fire hydrant a lot.
Alas, the stuffed fire hydrant was not long for this world…
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $34.65 for the August Pet GiftBox. That is better than the month-to-month cost of the subscription by a few bucks. I liked the theme and thought all the toys and treats fit it pretty well (plus it is easy to buy more of them since they are current products from their manufacturers). Nyx thought the toys were great. So this was a good box for us.
