box giveaway and my golden french key

by Sharon Santoni

I love new beginnings, ….. a new year, a new decade.     At this beginning of the new year, we  wanted to bring you several pieces of exciting news over at My Stylish French Box and here at MFCH.

On the blog

First of all here on the blog.   For those of you who have written asking for another short story, I’m happy to tell you I’ll publish the first chapter in a new story this coming week.

In my garden

Secondly, in my garden, I’ll be doubling the size of my potager this year, and I’m excited to share with you how we create that and how the garden grows.

In the magazine

On the MFCH Magazine, for those of you purchasing a February box, it is now possible to add a copy of the current magazine issue to your box, for a simultaneous delivery in February.

And an amazing offer with the box

And finally, over at My Stylish French Box, we have some very big news.  Inspired by the Golden Tickets in Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, we have created the My Golden French Key.     In each edition of our subscription boxes (February, May, August and November) there will be one single golden key tucked in to a random box.   The person who finds the key in their box, will take a picture of the key and send us the photo with an email.    In return they will receive a gift from one of our favourite French brands, with a retail value of over $300.

I am beyond thrilled to tell you that for our February box, and the very first Golden French Key, we are partnering with the prestigious brand Annick Goutal.     Madame Goutal’s company is generously offering the winner of the key, a set of divine Goutal products worth over $300.


We are also running a giveaway for this box.  To enter and maybe win a MSFB February box, simple leave a comment below and follow My Stylish French Box on Instagram.  To enter more than once, share the giveaway on Instagram or Facebook and come back here to leave a comment telling us where you shared.

To try your luck on the giveaway and maybe find the golden key in your February box, simply purchase a box HERE, and choose between a one-off purchase or  a subscription.    Limited stocks available.

Thank you to Annick Goutal for partnering with us on this first Golden Key.  We are honoured.

I came to your blog via your book and I’ve stayed for all the same reasons; the interesting content, the attraction to anything French and your style and elan! I enjoy peeking into other peoples’ lives and am inspired by your photos, so always check your Instagram account too. Your carefully curated box is just gorgeous and a lovely surprise this week.
Happy New Year to you and your family.

Tracy brown January 12, 2020 - 11:45 pm

Sharon, I’ve been trying to change my herb garden over to a potager the last few years. Slow going, having to move the plants I want to keep. Our exceptionally hot and/or rainy springs and summers have hampered the progress. I’m no spring chick anymore.
Anyway- I was curious as to what you put on the gardens for the winter. In the photo, it looks like ash.

Corinne Giannone January 12, 2020 - 11:49 pm

Wishing all a happy new year! I love MFCH magazine and your blog! I would be so honored to win a lucky French box in February, the month for all things romantic and French❤️!
I’m not on Instagram, but will like you on Facebook!
Did I miss the next magazine release? My last copy was the Holiday issue.
Thank you so much!
Corinne Giannone

Patricia Kennedy January 12, 2020 - 11:49 pm

Roxane Lacroix January 19, 2020 - 1:31 pm

The golden key is such a fabulous idea that makes opening the MSFB even more exciting and surprising! The bonus of winning Annick Goutal products is superb! I remember going through CDG after my first trip to France and seeing the duty free shops, especially the perfumes! On that trip I purchased Les Nuits d’Hadrien by AG and absolutely loved it. I have such a perfume obsession, especially any that have strong notes of ambre, patchouli and woods. Thank you so much for sharing such stylish French brands. I’m hoping I’m lucky enough to win the February box! Off to share the give-away!

Roxane Lacroix January 19, 2020 - 2:09 pm

Shared on Facebook and Instagram, merci for this giveaway!

Ingrid January 21, 2020 - 3:21 pm

Love your blog and would love to try out the box 🙂

Amy Sapio January 21, 2020 - 4:16 pm

I received My Stylish French Box as a Christmas gift from my husband. I have been desiring this box for so long, and was beyond overwhelmed when I had one sitting on my lap! I loved everything in the box! It is probably one of my most cherished gifts of all time. I have a deep love of France and anything French. My great grandfather was born in Paris and I just have that crazy connection. Lucky enough to visit a few years ago and never wanted to leave. There is just something about France that makes you fall in love with it!

Lyntoria January 22, 2020 - 2:59 am

I love My French Country Home! I enjoy reading about the places and culture of France. I am excited to have an opportunity to win one of your lovely boxes.

Marilyn January 24, 2020 - 12:16 am

I have been a subscriber to MSFB for a little over a year and have thoroughly enjoyed each one. I have been to France many times, and hope to return many more. Your boxes are reminders of why I love France so much. Thank you for all the care you put in each box.

MARTHA ABERNETHY January 24, 2020 - 11:21 pm

I just ooze contentment whenever I see your email. Your magazine leaves me limp. I so love what you are doing.
As a travel agent, your magazine is a joy to share. But I will not give my copies away. I save them for a cozy day
by the fire. Merci

Carol Hamilton Cobb January 28, 2020 - 7:46 am

Looking so forward to all the issues of MCFH in 2020! Thank you for providing such a quality magazine that provides so much pleasure to subscribers! Wishing the staff of MFCH a very blessed New Year and thank you for all the hours you put into making
such a marvelous publication! Merci!

Charlene January 29, 2020 - 4:46 pm

What a beautiful blog. Hoping that I might be the lucky one this month.

Beryl January 30, 2020 - 7:49 pm

Petite Cherie was the first perfume I bought both of my daughters, Alexandra and Arianna when they were little girls. I kept the bottles even though they are empty as I like to smell them, it takes me back to a time when they were small and my sweet little giggly girls playing dress up. They are now 27 and 22. It is amazing how almost 15 years later the bottles still hold their fragrance. It is a young and precious scent and gives me such sweet memories. I wish they were getting this surprise, especially since Alexandra’s birthday is in February! xo

donna macdonald January 31, 2020 - 4:25 pm

I remember I heard a sad story of how Annick Goutal died tragically in an accident. And then I heard that her lovely daughter took the helm of the business and continued to see it grow. It was an inspiring story for me at the time for various reasons but my heart has always gone out to this lovely company. Victoria magazine did a story about the daughter and all the wonderful French scented products she sells. Beautiful.
