I received an email a few weeks ago from a company called Thoughtfully. They offered to allow me to review one of their gift boxes and being the curious person that I am, I agreed.  I had no idea what to expect since I had never heard of their site before, but wow! was I pleasantly surprised!

I was told to pick my 3 favorites and they would randomly send me one of them.  I was so excited to see which one I would get I could hardly wait for it to get here, and I was not disappointed.   They chose the Apple Pie Story box for my gift and I couldn’t be happier.  It not only included the apple spice and pie crust mixes, it also came with 2 ceramic mini pie dishes, a red striped pot holder and the cutest set of measuring spoons I think I’ve ever seen.  (They are shaped like mini mason jars and are absolutely adorable!)


This set ended up being a perfect choice for me since I love to bake and apple pie is one of my favorites, but it was really hard to choose.  They truly have something for everyone.  There are several different sweets options, a few based on cocktails (for that relative you hardly ever see but always has a drink in their hand when you do) and also choices for hot sauce lovers, popcorn nuts or even bakers of beer bread.


Each set is unique and the items are all hand wrapped and displayed beautifully.  It’s a real treat to open up all the individual pieces in the set and discover all the goodies inside.  These would make awesome gifts for just about anybody on your list and are sure to put a smile on their face.  Right now they are also offering $5 off & free shipping on your first order when you sign up with your email.  Woohoo!  Better than that…they are also allowing me to gift a box to one of my fans.  You can choose from any of the choices below if you are lucky enough to be the winner:
