We have sent out our November box, and as is our tradition I am happy to reveal the contents to those of you wondering what we included in this end of year collection. Time for our November box reveal.
This box is our 12th box, coming at the end of three years of sending boxes. It passed in a flash, but feels like a big thing. Thank you to all of our clients, whether you have subscribed from the start, or just pop in for a gift now and again, we are so happy to bring you these boxes of French goodies.
We have some big news too. So many people were disappointed when the box sold out, because they still wanted to buy one as a Holiday gift. We listened and have organised a second smaller batch of boxes. Sales are open now, contents will be identical to those you see here, and delivery will be before mid December. The ideal gift for a sister, sister in law, mum or best friend …. or even just for you! Don’t hesitate to email us with questions. Click here to purchase.
So without more ado, here is what was included in our November box.
A set of candles from L’Artisan Parfumeur: L’Artisan Parfumeur has become an icon of French fragrance over the last 40 years and is one of those outstanding brands that puts passion into every detail. For our November Box, we chose a lovely set of three travel candles. This holiday season, ensure gorgeous, uniques scent throughout your entire home by using them individually in different rooms, or group as a trio for a stunning display your guests will surely admire.
Liquid soap from La Savonnerie Royale: Based in Versailles, close to the Royal Palace, La Savonnerie Royal’s soaps are crafted in the tradition of the finest French products, and each is named after a feature of Versailles. The elegant, fragrant liquid soap we chose for our November Box is the ideal addition to your bathroom or powder room.
A silk scarf, created exclusively for My Stylish French Box by Maracadabou: Custom-designed especially for MSFB in colors to fit your holiday wardrobe, this silk scarf is impossibly soft and as chic as it is versatile. Channel the elegance of French women by styling around your neckline or on the handle of your favorite handbag. It’s the perfect accessory for any seasonal soiree.
Two antique teaspoons: We are very excited to offer a pair of antique silver plate teaspoons in our November Box, each created with a unique design. While at least 80 years old, they have been completely polished so that you can enjoy them in your home.
A necklace from Gisel B: This cultured pearl necklace is a guaranteed way to shine with French elegance this holiday season. Pair with the simplest of dresses or shirts to effortlessly add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi to any look.
This month’s watercolor print: This November Box, we continue with our series of illustrations by the iconic French artist Jean-Jacques Sempé. The print is typical of Sempé’s trademark humor and features a charming scene around a festive table – while most guests are contemplating an exceptional bottle of wine, one lady prefers to check out the pedigree of the tableware.
A linen pochette, printed exclusively for My Stylish French Box by LeLigne: For our November Box, we chose to work with Leligne to create a custom linen pochette with a design inspired by winter frost. Chic enough to serve as a small handbag, it can also work inside another bag to keep makeup or other small essentials tidy. We love this brand not only for their beautiful textiles, but because they take great care in ensuring that their production process is sustainable.
A decorative branch from Au Bain Marie: Elevate your tablescapes with this gorgeous olive branch piece, which adds a festive golden touch to any holiday table. Au Bain Marie is an iconic French brand that has long been renowned for their elegant Parisian table displays. It looks particularly stunning laid out beside a candle or in front of a seasonal bouquet.
EXTRA: some delicious sweets from Boissier: In each edition of our box, we include an extra little gift to thank our annual and quarterly subscribers. For our November Box we turned to Boissier, one of our favorite chocolate and candy stores in Paris, and they have created two bijou boxes, one with truffles and the other with candy coated chocolate hearts. You will receive one of these boxes in your selection.
Thank you to everyone who has let us know how much they love their box, we look forward to bringing you more treasure in 2020!
