|The Information Card
For this type of box, I think the information card is the most important part of the box. This month's date was mini golf. The card included a game for you to play with your other.
The Game: The game is called FORE! Questions. At each hole, whoever sinks the ball first, gets to ask their other a question. There is one catch, you have to start the question with “FOUR”. They state yelling it (like you're on a golf course is optional). Your question might look like this : Four! all time favorite movies.
I thought this was a really cute unique game to play. I can totally see my son L yelling FORE all over the mini golf course.
|2 Aluminum Bottles
These have screw top lids and a little clasp on them too. The Other Box included them to make sure you and your other will remain hydrated on the mini golf course.
|2 golf balls
I think these balls are really cute. I like that they both say “my Other ball”. It's a cute play on words. I don't think I would actually bring these to a mini golf course, as I would be the person who lost it in the water feature.
|4 Nuun Drink Tablets
I have received these in my Stride Box. You drop them in to a bottle of water and they dissolve. I received Fruit Punch, Grape, Tri Berry and Lemon Lime.
|The Whole Box
Final Thought: I normally do a retail value of my boxes, but it was hard for this box. Since the items were personalized, I didn't asses a value. I do know the bottles can go from $7.00-$14.00 a piece, depending where/what you get. I think the idea of the date also adds value to the box. I love the idea of this box. This would be a great gift idea for a special person in your life. I don't think mini golfing is that unique, but it is something I would not think of doing on a date. The only thing I felt was missing was a snack, but that would make a great stop on the date. Now, how would you like to win a box for yourself? Enter below to win The Other Box for yourself.
