For the first spoiler, there are actually 3 items! FabFitFun sent us all these items early so I can help answer any questions you might have about them + decide which item you are going to pick!

All subscribers will be able to pick one of these:

Show Me Your Mumu Robe – Retail Value $84

Notes from FabFitFun:

  • 100% Polyester
  • Handwash cold, lay flat to dry
  • Fits up to size 16

This robe features a tie belt and a high-low hem.

Out of all the three spoilers, this one is my favorite – I love the brand, and this floral print is exactly what I need to look forward to Spring!

The fabric is soft and lightweight, but not too sheer. The perfect weight for a Spring robe.

Here it is on:

(For reference, I’m 5’7″, and somewhere between a size Medium + Large at Forever 21.)

Anyone else have a morning ritual that is coffee + staring into your dog’s eyes? 🙂

Next option:

Deux Lux Demi Backpack – Retail Value $75

This is a cream-colored canvas backpack with black vegan leather accents.

The sides of the bag snap together to keep everything in place, and you can unsnap for packing/unpacking:

The inside is lined in black fabric with one open pocket:

One thing to note, since the bottom of the bag is canvas + not the vegan leather, I’d recommend spraying it with Scotchguard or a similar product to keep it looking pristine:

Here it is on hand to give you a better sense of scale:

And the straps are adjustable so you can get the perfect fit:

Since this material is mostly canvas it is very lightweight and packs down well for travel.

Third option:

Unplug Meditation Aromatherapy Diffuser – Retail Value $55

  • Weight: 160ml Aromatherapy, 1 x 10ml essential oils
  • Dimensions: 4.5 x 4.5 x 7.5
  • Adapter, 1 x user manual included
  • Product Care Instructions: 160ml water reservoir is BPA free and treated with Silver CleanTM Protection, which fights the growth of mold on the surface of the tank. Hand Wash only.

This diffuser comes with a lovely orange essential orange blend!

It has an on/off switch, and you can also turn on the light and watch the colors change!

And the adapter is a USB so you can easily plug it directly into your laptop for a zen desk experience:

  1. I have wished a long time for a backpack in a box! It’s finally here. I may have to do some artwork on it so it won’t look too dirty as time passes.

    • It’s a canvas, after all!

    • I always get the 1 thing I won’t use, so i’ll more than likely get the backpack. I guess out of three, i’d choose the aroma therapy diffuser and regift it.

      • Everyone gets to choose one of the three, so if you make sure to go on and make a selection, you shouldn’t end up getting the item that you don’t want. 🙂

    • Great idea!!

  2. Love the robe but not sure. It doesn’t look like it has an inside tie, and if it’s slippery polyester I find those don’t stay closed very well. I don’t have a backpack like that, but I can’t think of a time I wished I did. I don’t have a diffuser either but I think I’d like one. Regardless, I’m a seasonal so I’ll get whatever is left!

    • Wow as a seasonal subscriber myself for 4 yrs, I’ve never not had a choice between everything.

  3. Going for the mumu! I think it is hideous, but I only have one robe with 3/4 sleeves and it is for winter, so a spring one will be great. Makes doing dishes in the morning much easier if I don’t have to keep pushing up my sleeves.

    Question: I’m sure this has been asked and answered a 1000 times, but when do we need to cancel our sub for FFF? I’m annual and this will be my last box and then I am quitting them. Just cancel right after the selections/add-ons window closes?

    • You can cancel now. Your membership doesn’t end until the billing of your next annual, so you keep all perks until then, despite canceling. I always cancel my account so I don’t have to think about it. I only have to remember to reactivate if I want to keep it, but they have a pop-up box asking me to reactivate every time I go on the site, so really, I can’t forget if I want to continue. I’m an annual member with Winter being my last box and I have access to everything, but have had my account cancelled since I renewed last spring.

      • Thank you!

  4. Is there any way we could see the robe modeled by different sized/shaped people? I really like it and its gorgeous on Liz, but I would like to see how it fits others before choosing it.

    • there is a video, in fff community.

      • I wouldn’t say the three models in the video are super diverse size wise. All seemed pretty tiny to me.

    • The photo of the three women wearing the robe is a little more size diverse. The woman in the center appears to be closer to the size 16 end of the spectrum.

  5. Diffuser FTW! I got the essential oil set from the last box and had been looking at diffusers to purchase, specifically for the office.

    I’m pleased. Great job FFF!

    • The oils frim the Winter box are NOT meant to be used in diffusers actually. Those were topical oils, they were in carrier oils. That can clog and/or ruin your diffuser. Just an FYI

      • I don’t use a diffuser so doesn’t affect me but what is the difference? I haven’t used my oils from the last box.

        • It sounds like the oils from the last box are meant to actually be applied to the skin. Or the essential oils were already mixed with a carrier oil (like coconut or vegetable oil) to dilute them slightly and make them “topical.” Straight EOs can be skin irritants. Oils used in diffusers are usually just base (100%) essential oils and then you mix them with water to dilute and diffuse. I think she means the carrier oils that were mixed in with the essential oils could clog or “harm” a diffuser.

      • Thank you! That is definitely good to know.

        I wasn’t paying close enough attention to what I got apparently. I haven’t used them all this time because I thought I couldn’t apply them directly.

  6. I loooove these items. But, am concerned that it won’t look right on me or fit me at all. I’m a size 16. Please tell me there’s a plus size???? Fingers crossed that this works. But, happy with this & will probably add on the ball pack as will.

    • Backpack

    • It says on the FabFitFun community post that it fits up to size 16. Hope that helps!

  7. OMG, that name of that robe -Show me your Mumu? In German the word Mumu is used to refer to a women’s private part LOL 😀

    • LOL! Maybe that’s the reason for the hi-low hem???? Ahahahahahaha….

    • The brand is named after a muumuu. The founders redesigned it to make it modern

    • Well, I’m 5’11” and if I wear that, I’m pretty sure I’ll be showing off my private parts.

      • me too! 5’11” and this will be a micro mini 🙂

      • I’m 6’2″… I think if I wore that robe, I’d be showing off MORE than just my mumu…

      • I’m 5’1. It’ll probably go to my ankles.

      • Yep. I’m 6’0 ft and if I wear the robe, I’ll be showing off a lot more than just my muumuu. LOL. Just NO bending over!!! 😀

  8. This is very cute! I love the robe! Happy with this spoiler 🙂

    • Love the robe!! Can we pay $10 and add on one of the other options? I want to add the backpack too!

  9. I am going with the back pack for sure, thanks for the idea to buy some Scotchguard before it gets here! I may add the robe, for those lazy days or when I have guests visiting.
    Awesome post Liz! I LOVE your hair color, perfect for you!

    • Thanks so much, Janet! 💗

  10. Liz, is it possible to turn on the diffuser without turning on the lights?

    • Yes, you can use it without the lights!

  11. Wow. I don’t know what I will pick. Usually during the selections there is one clear winner for me. This time I’m just not sure. I want all three. I have to close my eyes and pick I guess.

    • I want all 3 too!!!! Who am I kidding?! I’ll add all 3🤦‍♀️🤣🤣🤣🤣

  12. I need help deciding. I guess I have a while, but today is the perfect day to discuss it. I definitely don’t need the robe because I’m not a robe wearer. The backpack would be my initial thought but I have So Many bags (I just donated about 30 to Goodwill). I know it would get so dirty.

    I’m new to this kind of stuff, so this is embarrassing but: When would one use a diffuser? Do you put it on at bedtime? With the USB port it would be perfect at work, but they have decided we can’t individualize our areas anymore. In the kitchen when I’m cooking something like fish? In the general area of my cat’s litterbox? I honestly have no clue. And where would one buy additional scents? I mean “happy” is good, but whatif I don’t want to be happy (that sounds horrible).

    Thank you all for all your help. 🙂

    • I mostly use mine in the bedroom when I’m sleeping…with relaxation or calming blends. It seems to help my dog too. LOL. Be careful, though, around your cat or putting one near the litterbox especially because some kinds can be toxic for animals. Please do your research and don’t let them get into the actual oils. Some say it’s not that toxic when diffused into the air but if you use a high concentration or run it constantly it can “build up” in the animal’s system even that way!

      • Tea tree can be particularly toxic to animals

      • I only diffuse oils that are specially formulated for animals – AnimalEO

        • Me too! Melissa the vet has created an awesome product line with AnimalEO.

    • That isn’t a robe… that is a swimsuit cover-up!!

      • That is a great idea actually!

    • I use my diffuser all the time in my living room or bedroom. Wherever you want it to smell fresh. Healthier alternative to candles I suppose. I love them. You can buy oils on amazon or places like target, Kohl’s, health stores. They are great.

      • Can the diffuser only be plugged in by usb? Or can it be connected to a wall outlet?

    • Jen you can use a diffuser for several reasons. I have 3 in my house and I use them often. I use them just to make the room smell better (much better option than using those chemical sprays), use it when anyone in my house is under the weather (eucalyptus is great for clearing up sinuses), use it at nighttime with a nighttime blend to help with sleep, use it in the kitchen often after cooking when the smells of food linger, plus more. Most diffusers also have the option of turning off the light and just using it as a diffuser. I started using these about 5 or 6 years ago and now I can’t imagine living without one. I have over 80 oils that I sometimes blend together to use in here.

      • Can you use oils in a candle warmer?

        • Yes, if you mean the set up where a bowl or bowl-like part is warmed by a tea light or small candle.

      • So true! I love my diffuser and can totally add another one to my home!

    • Oh…and these days you find find other kinds of oils just about anywhere. There are specific sites that specialize in them or you can buy from places like Amazon. Just know that they do vary in “quality”….look for “theurapeutic grade” or “100% essential oil” if you are using for supposed health benefits instead of just smell. 🙂 Oh and I should probably point out that when using in a diffuser you only use a couple drops of oil and the rest is dilluted in water!!

    • I wouldn’t put it anywhere near where your cat could get to it. Also, I’d recommend doing some research about which ones to avoid for anyone with pets. Not all essential oils are pet-safe and can harm them.

      • Citrus oils are one type that are not great for cats at all, so yes, do your research for kitty care and kindness.
        You could use a diffuser at your office/desk if permitted for a variety of reasons based in the oils you choose. Diffusers do create a lovely aroma without the chemicals that regular air fresheners do.

        I’ll probably choose the backpack. Not something I need often, but when I do I want a cute one!

    • Like LB said- research which oils are safe to use around cars. Some are very toxic in small doses.

  13. I am super excited!!! Love them all 🙂 Spring box is looking like it will be a fantastic box. Fingers crossed that all the next spoilers will be as exciting. I agree that I hope we get the option to pick all three…

  14. Unfortunately I am not a fan of any of those, and not sure any of the people I could gift them to would like any of them. Might skip this box unless the other items are ones I want or ones I can gift.

    • Glad to see someone else has the same feeling as me. I don’t know what I would do with any of these items, besides maybe sell them on eBay?

      • Literally none of these items appeal to me. All I see is junk, junk, junk. Lol. I still have crap from past fff boxes that remain unused. Just seems like a bunch of overstock items they put together in a box and hawk on the internet, Instagram, fb, etc. to unsuspecting buyers. Me being one of them in the past unfortunately. Lesson learned!

    • How do you skip a box? This will be my 3rd and so far, I’m not excited.

    • I, too, want NONE of these.

  15. I’m excited about the robe! I don’t have a light weight one and I think the floral is very pretty! I also like the variety in the three choices. The box design is gorgeous too.

  16. I like the robe but I am 5 feet tall, size 4 petite. It may be too big for me. The size small robe from PopSugar is way too largel

    I don’t have a diffuser so I may choose that.

  17. I don’t need another robe or diffuser (admitted sub addict here) and I’m actually pretty excited about the backpack because although I also have alot of bags I don’t have a backpack style like this yet….plus — it has straps!!! No clutch!!! It’s neutral enough to work for what I need and be pretty universal (not too casual). But I’m surprised to see that the bottom doesn’t have the black “vegan leather” on it….that is a bummer. Such a small touch that would have made me completely happy!

  18. I want the robe and the aroma therapy stuff!!
    That is the first time that I actually want two of the options items!
    So exiting!!!

  19. Something for everyone! These are great options. I already have a lightweight pink robe (from PopSugar) and a diffuser (from Bespoke Post) so the backpack is for me. I wear a lot of black so it will go nicely with what I already have.

    Liz, scrolling through the pictures I thought those the robe pictures were a professional shoot with a model! I didn’t realize it was you until I went back to make a final decision. You look awesome and the photographs are amazing.

    • Same thoughts! After I scrolled up I realized it was liz. You look amazing liz! ♡

    • OMG thank you! 💗

  20. Would you mind saying what size the robe is you have on? I am your height and similar build so it would be really helpful. Thanks so much!

    • It’s one size fits all (up to SZ 16)

    • It would be helpful to know the legnth and the width though.

      • robe laid flat: 24″ across waist, 34.5″ from shoulder to front hem, 40.5″ shoulder to back hem.

        Hope that helps!

  21. Ok, this might be a weird question, but I’ve thought it before, so I’m just going to ask. Liz, is there any chance that you would do a post with your eating and exercise plan? You look amazing! I know it’s not really sub box related, but I’m hoping you’ll still do it. 🙂

    • Yes please!! You look awesome and your hair is FABULOUS in this post!!!

    • She seriously does look amazing. I’ve always thought she was gorgeous (and obviously a sweet person) but the posts the past few weeks have literally had my jaw dropping when I see her pics!!! So jealous….

    • OMG, Suzanne, what a confidence-boosting comment to read! I definitely do not feel like I am in a place to offer any expertise there, but one thing that has worked for me + Eric is using the MyFitnessPal app to track food + exercise. I also have a sweet tooth that I can’t escape, so my regular dessert indulgence is the Enlightened Ice Cream in Cold Brew. (It’s 240 calories a pint and tastes SO much better than Halo Top.) Not sure if that’s helpful at all?

  22. I think I like the robe best too. I may also have to have one of each of the other choices as well. What a great start for the spring box!

  23. Either robe or backpack. I could use both especially the backpack but wish it came in a darker color because I can really see that light color looking grungy in no time…hmmm

  24. Yesss!! So excited for these items. Although the backpack is not something I would pick. I am definitely getting the diffuser and hoping to get the rope as an add-on! Can’t wait. Let the metaphorical “Black Friday” Lines begin!

  25. PET OWNERS!!! Be aware that certain essential oils in a diffuser can be dangerous for pets!! So make sure you look it up before using it!

    • You are absolutely correct! I bought a diffuser almost just like this one last summer. So excited to use I bought a bunch of oils etc. 1st time I turned it on, about an hour later, my dog Gizmo looked like he was having some kind of neurological problems. Freaked me out! Turned off the diffuser n took him out of the house into the fresh air n thankfully he recovered very quickly. And of course I was using orange oil. Just like they’re offering with this diffuser. Citrus oils can be very toxic for pets. And small children can be affected as well. All’s I ask is that everyone do their homework on this ine before choosing

    • I appreciate all the posts about essential oils and pets. I had no idea there are some that aren’t safe for them. Since I’ll most likely get the diffuser, I guess I need to do some research on pet safe EOs.

  26. How long is the cord for the diffuser? Thanks!

    • 42 inches.

      • Liz,
        Do you know the last day to cancel seasonal if you want to skip this box?

  27. I’m getting all 3 😍 I’m so happy I’m a select member bc imma grab these for sure

  28. Yesss!! So excited for these items. Although the backpack is not something I would pick. I am definitely getting the diffuser and hoping to get the rope as an add-on! Can’t wait. Let the metaphorical “Black Friday” VIBES begin!

  29. Just a head’s up, orange oil is not good to diffuse around cats. It can harm their livers. If you have a cat you may want to use this oil at the office.

    • That’s good to know!!!

    • Thanks for the info. I had no idea and I do have a cat, so no diffuser for me.

  30. I NEED the robe and the diffuser! That robe is so pretty and exactly my style. I would totally buy it if I saw it at a store. I love the diffuser and don’t have one. I probably will just use it with water and no fragrance to enjoy the colors.

    • Ohhh so smart! We can use it as a humidifier! ❤

  31. Hmmm … how long do we have to cancel? I’m still subbed from Winter as seasonal, but I’m not sure about this. The robe is nice, but I’m a size 14 and it doesn’t look that roomy on Liz and she’s much smaller than that. I just bought a Vooray backpack to match my Vooray duffel that’s coming in Popsugar, and the diffuser from my Ellen box is very nice and chugging away on my desk as I type. I have cats, so I don’t really need another diffuser.

  32. These are awesome! Any idea if we’ll have the option to add a second item?

    • Confirmed from FabFitFun: Customers will be able to choose additional choice items for the extra $10 each!

      • So if we choose the diffuser we will be able to add the robe and the backpack for an additional $10 ea to our box? Thiis is my first customizable box and first box as an annual member so I’m new to how this works?

        • Yes, that’s how it should work!

  33. Love all 3 of these but the robe needs to be for more sizes.

    • YES!!

  34. That backpack will be mine!

  35. Does the diffuser have a wall adapter so we can actually plug it in when not using a computer? If I have to go out and buy a special adapter to get this to work,that’s not a great product.

    • If it doesn’t, you could get a wall plug that allows usb connections. I know it’s not ideal, but I have one in the kitchen, and our side table in the living room has a built-in power strip with 2 usb connections. They’ve actually come in handy quite often, and it’s easier to plug things in without the bulky cubes you usually need for phone chargers

      • FYI, those “bulky cubes” for phone chargers are actually converters that moderate the voltage your phone gets and literally keeps them from exploding from overloading on electricity. I don’t feel safe plugging my phone or any other piece of electronic equipment worth more than $20 into one of those without the converter that came with the device, otherwise they could get completely fried from the wrong amount of power trying to enter the device.

  36. Ugh. The Mumu will never fit me. I have 6 million bags, and even more diffusers. This will be the last box in my annual sub and it will be my last, sorry to say. I’ve enjoyed other boxes, but just not feeling it anymore.

  37. I’m leaning toward the robe although I’m concerned about the fit. I already have a diffuser and although I like the backpack a lot, light colored handbags & I are not the best pairing.

  38. Diffuser all the way.

  39. I’m not sold yet, but I really like that backpack.

  40. Liz: if the diffuser is fully charged, will it run without being plugged in? Thanks!

    • No, I believe it needs to be plugged in. Hope that helps!

      • Thanks so much.

  41. Fits up to a size 16 🙄 thanks for the exclusion.

  42. SO F’in happy!! I needed a diffuser since my puppy’s take happily broke mine! I’ve been holding off to see what’s in this box! And I appreciated that the bag has canvas which I love even if they did managed to sneak in vegan “leather.”

  43. I came here for the first spoiler since the FFF site is making my computer run slow. Everyone must be on their site. Anyways I like all the spoilers and it will be hard to choose. Thank you for modeling/demonstrating each item and for the extra photos!

    • Glad to hear the photos + modeling are helpful! 🙂

  44. Yesssss! So excited. I love these items. The back pack is not something I would pick, but I’m definitely getting the diffuser & Robe!!

  45. Will it be like last time where you can choice all three and pay $20 fir each additional item

    • Confirmed from FabFitFun: Customers will be able to choose additional choice items for the extra $10 each!

  46. Wow. I hate the mumu, hate the diffuser, but was looking for a backpack like this and it’s not perfect but good enough to satisfy that want. I feel very lucky.

  47. I love all of these. So excited for more.

  48. Not particularly happy with any of these. Suppose I’ll pick the backpack but I’m not on the whole diffuser train and I think the robe is kinda ugly

    • I’m totally with you! Not excited about any of them.

  49. Backpack 100%

  50. I like them all. Hopefully we can pick all 3. The robe should fit more plus sizes though. I’m a little disappointed in that. It should go up to a 24 or something.

    • 100% agree.

    • How is it that they have so many options to choose from among various items but they can’t have an option to pick a plus-size or smaller size? There is plenty of demand for both.

      • I agree with you about sizing. I’m super short(5 foot) and small so this will probably go past my knees. At least it’s short sleeve. I couldn’t use that pink one from Popsugar because the sleeves wouldn’t stay rolled up. I don’t like the backpack at all. Vegan leather just looks like plastic. My son would love the diffuser that changes colors. I may end up picking the diffuser and the robe.

    • Confirmed from FabFitFun: Customers will be able to choose additional choice items for the extra $10 each!

      • Now thats really cool. Don’t get TOO EXCITED about this if you’re a seasonal member though. Kerp in mind that all annual members are gonna have a 3 day head start on you to buy out all of those extras 😉

      • That’s amazing!!!

    • I really like the robe itself and would probably fit me “ok”. But Liz is 5ft 7in n so am I and from what I can tell in that 2nd picture it looks like it wouldnt take MUCH for the hoo hoo to b showing with a slight lift of the arms. Lol

    • They need size options.
      A one size fits all up to size 24 isn’t going to fit smaller sizes. One size fits all is just BS in general.

      If they want to send a robe, the customization on the robe should be the size. Rather than being “you aren’t average height/weight, pick something else”

      • Agreed. I’m so depressed because I LOVE the robe but it only goes to a size 16 and it’ll never fit me. I’m not really impressed with the other items so I’m just bummed!

    • Yaaassssss
