Do you guys belong to any subscription services? I’ve done a few over the years, ranging from monthly deliveries of makeup samples to stationary and card deliveries, and always enjoyed the day I’d find them in the mail, so I could rifle through that month’s loot. Plus, it’s just so fun to get snail mail that’s not bills or magazines, right?
One of my long time travel blogger friends, Dana Carmel Bell, recently launched her very own monthly subscription service, and I’m so excited to share it with you guys! Going along with her passion for travel (and also the face that she’s been married for 9 years), Dana created the Couples Getaway Box.
I received my first box in the mail this week, and had so much fun opening it. The theme for the box was The Road to Freedom, and it featured fun road trip essentials inspired by the journey from Miami to Key West. Now, obviously you don’t need to be taking that exact road trip (or any road trip, for that matter!) to enjoy the box. In fact, what I like most about it is it’s a fun box to inspire a date night right in your own town! (i.e. the theme of this website…use your city😉 In our box, we received:
–Moonlight and Roses Bath Bomb (for a refreshing morning bath that makes the entire apartment smell like Key West on a summer morning–totally reminded me of our trip there a few years ago)
–Guava Preserve (perfect for slathering on pancakes for a romantic breakfast in bed…or at the table, if the idea of crumbs in your bed freaks you out;-)
–Table Topic Road Trip To Go Cards (which my husband and I asked each other on the way to the pool)
–Key Lime Cooler Cookies (which we snacked on at the pool, along with minty mojitos)
–Magnetic Photo Picture Frame (which we inserted our favorite photo from our day AT the pool…it happens to be this one)
The box also contains detailed itineraries for where to Stay/Eat/Play when you’re at the destination. Seriously, it takes all the guess work out of planning a getaway!
The box is delivered every other month (so 6 total boxes in a year), and is either $39 for a box or $210 for the entire year. I personally think this would be a cherished gift for anyone in your life with a bit of a travel bug, or even a unique wedding or anniversary gift…not to mention a fun way to #treatyoself and your other half! Dana is offering 15 % off for first time subscribers with the code USEDYYORK15 at checkout. This is a great way to support a female owned small business (go, #girlboss, go!), while staying inspired to try new things.
Here’s to a taste of the world, delivered to your doorstep. Happy travels!
