first look in the couples getaway bo
Our first glimpse inside the Couples Getaway Box. We love the packaging - it has a fun 70's vibe to it.

Everything that we received in our Couples Getaway Box. This month we are traveling to New Orleans! 


So what is all this stuff?

Our itinerary includes places to stay in NOLA as well as places to eat and play!


1898 bathery co
This seductive scented body frosting has notes of sandalwood, musk and florals... no wonder it's called "New Orleans Boudoir"!

The smooth non-greasy formula makes it great for massage. So take this time to enjoy your partners body!


Louisiana Cajun Jambalaya Entree Mix

All you need to add to this mix is the meat of your choice and you'll have yourself an authentic Louisiana Culinary Treat! We will definitely opt to serve this with seafood - yum!


Kayak Swamp Tours

This little pamphlet for a popular New Orleans swamp tour makes this box feel so authentic!

Created by Rachel Beck, a Louisiana local these notecards make a great bonding shared activity. 

Each notecard highlights a different NOLA attraction


Colored Pencils
In addition to our notecards we also received two packages of these six piece colored pencil sets. How else would we color our cards? And this way - we don't have to share!

Cafe Du Monde Beignet Mix

To compliment your jambalaya, finish your meal off with some delicious beignets! A traditional french doughnut (that tastes a lot like funnel cake)

The recipe was super simple. Mix two cups of the mix with 7 ounces of water

Roll on floured surface to 1/8th of an inch and then cut into 2 inch squares

Fry in 2 inches of oil until it puffs up 

Then douse those babies in powdered sugar. Voila' 


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. The Couples Getaway Box is a great way to bond with your partner while also experiencing new flavors and the different wonders of romantic attractions. The presentation is awesome - we love the box and everything arrives perfectly. The quality is wonderful. We love the lotion and the beignets were the bomb! Curation is perfect. They really did a great job with the itinerary and rounding up items that really feel like the chosen city! Bravo to them!
