A * Pour Toi is a wonderful little company that specializes in monthly gift boxes. I got a chance to check out their boxes and see what they were all about. Each item is hand picked and not only delicious but nutritious as well!
Here is a quote from their site:
"a*pour toi, which translates to a*[present] for you, is an elegant gifting experience that nurtures the relationships that are in your life through the delight of a present. Founded on the principle of giving with care, elegance and joy, a*pour toi brings pleasure to your life by selecting and providing the finest gourmet items with surprise and delight: delicious food, consciously chosen, makes for a rich life."

When I went to their site the first time the first thing that I noticed was the lovely aesthetic of the site and the boxes. The design is simple and elegant. I knew I wanted to check out their boxes. When I got it in the mail it had a lot more than I expected it to. Inside I found 4 different types of cookies, lemon candies, white chocolate covered pistachios and chocolate truffles! Not to mention they all came in the cutest reusable bag and the box was pretty neat too! Everything was neatly packaged and so cute. My husband and I tried everything in the box and it was all delicious. The cookies were still fresh and the pistachios were yummy! The customer service was exquisite as well. Julie Hasson, the founder, was absolutely wonderful to talk to and work with.
I highly recommend these boxes. They would be perfect for a foodie friend or really anyone! Check out A * Pour Toi and order a box! You won't regret it!
I also had a box shipped to my friend Sam. Here's what she had to say about it:
"My best friend, often referred to as my biff, said she was sending me a box with food in it from someone that had seen her blog. I thought it seemed pretty neat, but had no idea what to expect. When I opened the package containing the box it created excitement before I even knew what was inside. The box is clean, yet fancy, and gives the feeling of an important gift, one you can't wait to open and discover what it holds. Not only is the box neat, it opens differently then most...it turns open from one of the corners! It is the little things in life that make some of the best excitement. Ok on to what was in it! Deliciousness! things I hadn't tried before all packed in a cute little fabric bag. The entire thing was just a new experience. I can't help but to smile when I walk by my kitchen table and see it sitting there waiting for me to try the next yummy item! My favorite had to be the white chocolate covered pistachios. Normally I am a dark chocolate fan, but this was a delightful pairing. My husband and I both also really enjoyed the Almondina, which was a cookie with almonds and raisins dipped in dark chocolate. As I said though, everything it contained was delicious. One final thing that I believe truly made it special...the name. A*pour toi. A present for you, the explaination is included in the box as well as a lovely introduction to the company. Both of which make the gift all that more meaningful. It is a great idea and I hope to purchase a couple throughout the year. I'm excited to see what the upcoming months will contain!
