You guys, August Escape Monthly came with a travel guide that I actually approve of. Usually it’s these weird black & white travel guides that I’m not totally keen on (I personally feel that the box would be super fantastic with destination inspired literature instead of a travel guide, but that’s just my opinion). But this one was fantastic!
Rick Steves Pocket Paris Travel Guide ($12.99) If I don’t get to go sometime soon, I’ll gift this to MIL (my sister in law lives in London so obviously they have been going to Paris… I should too!)
It’s the 125th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. I have this totally awesome necklace made out of Eiffel.
Food! Too bad they can’t just box some baguettes and send them to me!
Pierre Biscuiterie French Butter Cookies ($4.25) How can you not like something from a biscuiterie?
Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserves ($3) They sell this everywhere but it’s yummy.
Edmond Fallot Mustard ($6.25) We are huge mustard fans. Alas, I have instituted a “no open” condiments rule (to prevent fridge overloading) until I get a second fridge. But this is award winning and I know we’ll like it!
Things that are made out of rose and will be sent to an old lady relative (my mother in law). I really am not a rose fan, MIL isn’t really an old lady.
Institut Karite Paris Shea Butter Hand Cream ($26) Some subscribers did not get the rose version. They are lucky.
L’Abbaye de Flavigny Rose Drops ($4.95) These rose candies were soft & light. I did try them but I’m still giving the rest to MIL.
Nuxe Body Scrub & Shower Gel ($16) I really love Nuxe products so I was happy to get these, especially as they smell so delicious.
This box was rose-heavy for me, but was a super pleasant surprise with the full color travel guide and other products that were totally awesome. I wish I’d received the regular hand cream but it’s nice to have something to give MIL that’s just for her.
Oh right, next month is the fabulous Puerto Rico!
