Eat Boutique Holiday Gift Box GIVEAWAY

get fresh recipes via email:

I’d say it’s about time for another giveaway, don’t you agree? Maggie at Eat Boutique has done it again. This holiday season, she’s got not just one gourmet gift box, but a whole assortment of them. Whether you want the big box or the small one, a box just for jams or a super holiday cocktail kit, any one of her 7 options would make a fabulous gift for the food-lover in your life. She’s even got subscriptions, where you’ll receive monthly shipments of your favorite artisan foods. A gift that truly keeps on giving.

If you’re ordering by the holidays, please try to place your orders before December 15th and take advantage of FREE SHIPPING. And, as a special little bonus for you guys, you can get an extra $5 off your order! Simply enter code LAOO upon checkout.

But enough banter, on to the giveaway (because I wouldn’t dare post about such a fab product without giving one away)! Maggie has donated one of her handmade holiday gift boxes (valued at ($94.95) to one lucky L&OO reader. You can keep the goodies all to yourself, or have it shipped to the recipient of your choice. But if you choose to keep it, we totally won’t judge. :)

The Homemade for the Holidays Gift Box contains candied orange rinds, pecan clusters, shortbread trio, cinnamon chocolate malt biscotti, sesame sage nuts, caramel corn, fleur de sel caramels, and caramelized onion crackers. It’ll satisfy all your cravings – sweet, savory, salty, and fabulous. The only bad thing about it is that I’m ineligible to win (darnit). Or maybe that’s a good thing because I’d totally hoard it for myself (sorry, Taylor).


To Enter:

Simply leave a comment on this post with the answer to this question:
What is on your holiday wish list this year (or, what is one gift you are excited about giving to someone else?)

Entries open through Friday, December 9 at 11:59PM CST. I’ll be randomly selecting the winner the morning of Saturday, December 10th. Prize will be shipped to the winner directly from Eat Boutique (to either you, or the recipient of your choice). Due to the perishable nature of this product this giveaway is open to residents of the continental United States ONLY.
