The Second Fabulous Travel Box (& How to Sign Up for the Third)

by Gigi Griffis

As you might already know, this year I joined the box revolution, adding hand-curated quarterly boxes of travel goodies to my site and taking on a handful of box subscribers. The first box, curated during my road trip across the USA, went out in late June. And the second box, featuring my time road tripping across Canada from Quebec City to Vancouver, started arriving in mailboxes in late August.

Here’s a peek at what was inside:



:: Two post cards: the first from Quebec City—the prettiest city we passed through this summer—and the second from wild, mountainous Banff National Park, which is just as stunning as everyone says.

:: A locally designed journal from Banff.

:: Locally made soap from British Columbia with a fragrance of BC berries, purchased in the cute ski town of Whistler.

:: Maple sugar candies from Ottawa.

:: And, finally, birch syrup–a special, little-known syrup made from the sap of the birch tree. It’s woody and tart and goes well over cheese and (or so I’ve heard) in chocolate chip cookies.

As usual, I also wrangled a discount for the lovely subscribers. The deal? 15% from the lovely folks at Happy Goat Coffee in Ottawa (a very underrated and wonderful city). I recommend the cookies.


Birch syrup drizzled over parmesan cheese.

Now, it’s time to collect the goods for the third and final travel box of not only the year, but the program. For logistical reasons, I won’t be continuing the boxes next year, so if you want to take part, if you want your own hand-curated travel goodie bag, now is your last chance.

For this box, I’m only taking on 20 subscribers and sign-up ends October 1 [update: sign up is closed!].

Looking forward to piling on the goodies in this third and final 2016 box!
