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.

Giveaway note:  Please complete all the mandatory tasks.  I will double check that the winner did all 3 tasks and I would hate to have to draw a second person.
