Special Edition Escape Monthly Holiday Box

Escape Monthly sends out monthly boxes filled with items from a travel destination. This month they offered a limited number of Holiday Edition boxes for $39.95. I wasn't sure what to expect from this box since it was holiday not destination themed. Curiosity got the best of me and I ordered it.

Holiday Escape monthly box. 

Contents of the box with approximate retail value:

Chicken Poop Lip Junk. Value = $3.00

The total value of this special holiday box is $92.96. This is a very interesting box and definitely not items you would normally see in their regular boxes. I am super excited to dig into this box! We have been on a hot chocolate kick around my house so all these chocolate packets are coming just in time to replenish my supply. When I saw the mustard bath stuff I wasn't sure if it was a product for me or a marinade for my chicken. Turns out it's an actual bath product. Interesting. The chakra oil is kind of cool. The one I got was for chakra #5 which is throat and the scent is chamomile & cypress oil infused with turquoise. I was planning on putting out a tray of bread, dipping oil and balsamic for an appetizer for Christmas. I think they basil olive oil will fit in nicely. I am not a fan of Alo drinks at all. A couple people at work like them and said the flavored ones are good. I didn't want to buy one for fear of not liking it so I was happy to see it in this box. Chicken Poop lip stuff? Ummm? Turns out it's not chicken poop but the name comes from an old saying from grandpa "If you've got dry lips, put  chicken poop on em so you won't lick them". The other snacks will go into the snack bin which I'm sure will be happily eaten by every one passing through our house this month. 

Verdict: I would order this box again if offered next year.
