Included was an information card with a list of the items for the month. (Note: This is the November box. This subscription ships from the UK so it took a little longer to get to me.)

Although a lot of the items are custom-made for the box, the makers are selling similar items on Etsy. So I have usually linked to their Etsy shops and taken the values from similar items.

There were also some business cards and coupon codes for some of the included artisans.

Lavender Sachet from ViviCreative – Value $6

This has quite a strong lavender scent, but it’s a nice, natural scent and not artificial at all. I put it in a drawer so my clothes will smell nice! Also, I have to admit I had fun looking at the ViviCreative Etsy shop. Who knew you could do so many cute things with burlap?

Nancy and Nell Plum and Rhubarb Candle (175 g) – Listed Value $16?

This candle is strongly scented (but I mean that in a good way – I like the fruity smell, which is more “plum” than “rhubarb” to me). These are made from soy wax with no artificial dyes. (The Nancy and Nell Etsy shop is on a break so I took the value from the info card.)

Green and Wild’s Salmon Cat Niblets (75 g) – Value $3.70?

One of the fun things about this subscription is getting to try some UK-based cat treats and foods. These are not available in the U.S. so I’ve taken the value from a UK retailer and converted to dollars. These smell STRONGLY like fish food. The smell definitely gets the cats interested. However, they really didn’t like the pellet form. Sneaky kept stealing these from other cats, running off with them, and then just leaving them on the floor. I guess they were hard for her to eat.

Zookaboo Pencil Case – Value $8?

I have so many pouches and makeup bags that I often give away dozens at a time. I do keep all the cat ones, though. I love the fabric this is made from – it's so cute!

Colored Pencils (12) – Value $4?

These were inside the pouch. This is a thoughtful inclusion. Although I do have some colored pencils already, some subscribers may not, and with these, they can still use the coloring book!

Cats: Colouring for Mindfulness (70 designs) – Value $8.32 on Amazon (retail price $9.99)

This is a fun inclusion in a box that’s all about relaxation! It might not be the best for coloring book purists because the paper is semi-thin and printed on both sides. You will need sharp colored pencils for this one because some of the areas to color are quite small. But I like it because CATS.

Here’s a sample page from the coloring book.

Kong Kickeroo – Value $5.39

This is quite a large toy! Best for cats who like wrestling with their toys, although the feather boa style tail was a hit with my guys and gal.

Bamboo Balls with Catnip – Value $0.96

Anytime there is a hard ball in a cat subscription box, I just know Monkey will love it. That was definitely the case here. He thought these were pretty awesome. Madison liked them, too. (Naturally, they like the least expensive toys. I found these or something very much like them, on Ali Express)

Cat photo time!

I was taking pictures of something else and Monkey kept digging through the box to get these bamboo balls out. He thought they were a lot of fun!

Mr. Kitty with some of the items from the box (I’m counting the ribbon as an item…)  I woke him up to take these pictures and he was pretty sleepy, so he’s not really a happy camper here.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $52.37 for the November 2016 My Purrfect Gift Box. That is somewhat below the cost plus shipping to the U.S. for this subscription (it is going to be a much better deal for UK-based subscribers). I also want to point out that some of the items are not easy to find in the U.S. and others are from Etsy, where you’d have to pay shipping from each individual artisan, so I think there is some value in curation. Also, I find that the value of this box goes up and down from month to month, and I would say the average value is higher than what you see here. Take a look at a couple of past reviews and see if the balance is right for you.

For what it’s worth, I thought the box was nicely curated and I felt like there was a lot in here. Although, my cats were not so sure about the treats.
