Fruit for Thought November 2016 Review and Coupon Plus December Theme

Fruit for Thought is a match made in subscription box heaven for those who love fruit flavors and themes! Every month a new fruit combination is featured and the boxes can arrive with everything from hand soap to home goods. This month the theme is Cucumber Melon and I can't deny that ever since I was old enough to know that Bath and Body Works existed and Cucumber Melon was a "thing," I've loved the scent.
Perfect for the gifting season, you can subscribe or gift two different sizes. The Mini box will have three to four items while the regular size box has 5-7. The fun part? You can find just about anything in your box!

The Cost: $39.99/month for the Regular box, $26.99 for the Mini

What You Get: Every month you'll receive 5-7 carefully packaged gifts featuring the scents, flavors, and colors with that month's theme. You'll receive items such as jewelry & accessories, lifestyle items, home decor, stationary items, luxurious bath & body products, yummy snacks and much more! The Mini box contains 3-4 of these items.

Made With Care Crochet Infinity Scarf- Limey green and very bright! At first I was a little unsure about the color.
Then I put it on. Looks pretty good with my crazy hair!
Value: $10

MoMster Cucumber Cookies- Super cute cookies frosted to look like cucumbers. Secretly, they're way cuter to look at than to eat. I tend to prefer softer sugar cookies over the crunchy kind.
Value: $3
Distress Decor Shabby Chic Pint size Mason Jar Soap Dispenser- LOVE! I adore this! I think it's my favorite thing in the box. Plus, please notice that it is green and therefore perfect to have out at Christmas time.
Value: $13.50

Bee Butter Soap Cucumber Melon Hand Soap- Yaaaas! Give me all the Cucumber Melon!
Value: $6.50
SimplyEscentials Cooling Cucumber Face Mask- Made with Kaolin Clay, Aloe Vera, red moroccan clay and fragrance. Good for normal to dry skin. I love anything with aloe vera in it so this will be nice. Plus it makes a LOT!
Value: $4.50

Hello Fruit Envelopes- Fruity gifting envelopes, great for money and gift cards.
Value: $2

VERDICT: Fruit for Thought is such a fun idea. I do wish that maybe there was one more scented item since part of the allure of this box (for me, at least) is getting all of that great scent. I have a neighbor who would go nuts over something like this. Her entire house is fruit themed. Fruit and geese. Heh. Not sure why but there you go. I do adore the soap dispenser, that is for sure! So unexpected! I think maybe my only suggestion would be to have a more seasonally appropriate scent? Although, what fruit would you pick for November? Figs? December's theme is on point, though! Fruit for Thought seems to source primarily from Etsy which I like, so if that's the sort of thing you love, too, you'll likely enjoy this.

If you would like to sign up for Fruit for Thought, you can do that here. December's theme is Cranberry Orange! That's a pretty perfect theme for the holidays, I have to admit. If you sign up, use code SIMPLE10 for 10% off your first box.

What do you think of this box? What scent do you love most of all?
