the november box is… mon beau sapin (+ a giveaway)!

by Sharon Santoni

The holiday season  is one of my favourite times of the year (do I say that about every season?).  The French Christmas may seem understated but it is nevertheless beautiful.  Paris in particular is always stunning,  Christmas trees and twinkly lights line the streets, from the beautifully decorated storefronts to the pop-up Christmas markets. It’s merry and chic at the same time,  a style which can easily translate to the streets of Paris or the cozy living room of my home in the countryside.

The theme for our November box is Mon Beau Sapin, which translates literally to “my beautiful Christmas tree”, and is the title of the French version of the carol O Christmas Tree.

I’ve put together a box of goodies that I know I’d love to find beneath the tree.  Things to make your house prettier, more festive and very French and stylish.

As excited as I am to reveal the contents to you, the surprise is one aspect the box to which I’ve always been loyal. I can however tell you that one of the brands we’ll be including in the box is l’Artisan Parfumeur, with whom we are very excited to partner for this box.  Their products are a regular favourite in my home.

Additionally, you may be excited to know that we are doing another Daughter Box this year!

I can’t even start thinking about Christmas yet! Even though your photos are gorgeous, it’s still warm and summery in the south, and I’m enjoying every minute. I know that coats will be de rigueur in the blink of an eye, and already we need a sweater in the morning, but oh how I enjoy having the windows open.
I look forward to seeing what exquisite goodies you put into your box. In November, it will be easier to think about Christmas.

Cate September 11, 2019 - 8:35 pm
