Burt's Bees Holiday Grab Bag Deal?

Evidently Burt's bees has their Holiday Grab bag on sale for $20.00 with the appropriate coupon code. I bought one of these last time, (for $25.00!) this is what I got

5 Full sized items and their approximate prices:
8 oz Soothingly Sensitive Aloe and Buttermilk Body Lotion. $8.00
Deep Pore Scrub 110g $8.00
Toothpaste 4 oz $5.00
Res Q ointment about 1/2 ounce $4.00
Nutmeg Lip Shimmer 2.6 grams $3.00
Total Value approximately $28.00

8 Hotel sizes:
3 soaps (0.8 oz)
1 conditioner (1 oz)
1 body wash (1 oz)
1 body lotion (1/2 oz)
1 facial cleanser (1/2 oz)
muscle mend balm (just a drop)
Total Value Approximately $7.00?

1 small washcloth
1 cloth glove
1 lipbalm holder/clip
(Mine also came with 3 'free' lipbalms with appropriate coupon codes)

So, a total of
5 'full sized' items worth $28.00
8 hotel sizes worth about $7.00?
3 filler items worth about $0
(and 3 'free' lipbalms, which is likely why mine cost $5.00 more than the current promo) $9.00

Was this a deal? Still not sure. Do I really want to give my 18 year old niece toothpaste and deep pore scrub for Christmas? Maybe, but these things don't seem all that Christmas-y to me. As gifts go, I think a $15.00 or $20.00 gift pack from Target would have been the better purchase.
