On The 1st Day Of NB Christmas Giveaways: The NB Box

On the 1st Day Of NB Christmas Giveaways, NB Box gave to me a $100 Gift Card to build your own box with products from across New Brunswick that you’re sure to love!

I am so excited to kick off the 12 days of New Brunswick Christmas Giveaways with this female-owned New Brunswick Business run by my long-time friend Ingrid. It’s been many moons since we worked together at Salty’s Restaurant on the waterfront in Halifax, Nova Scotia and I am SO proud to see what she’s created with the NB Box!

About NB Box

The NB Box was started by Ingrid as a way of showcasing the abundance of high-quality goods available in New Brunswick! The NB Box’s mission is supporting makers and creatives in New Brunswick communities and having pride in the diverse and unique products they make.

Each box is carefully curated and filled with the best locally made New Brunswick products. Perfect for treating yourself or gifting to a loved one.

You can choose one of their beautifully curated boxes, or you can build one of your own like we’ve done.

What we love about NB Box

My favourite part of this particular giveaway is the freedom to create your own box! I created my NB Custom Box with the theme of ‘East Coast Kitchen’ in mind. I started out with Chicken Bones and specialty fudge because it wouldn’t be an East Coast Christmas in New Brunswick without these seasonal treats in the house.

Christmas Giveaways: The NB Box

I wanted to get a mix of things to use for my own kitchen as well as taking some of them out for stocking stuffers for my family. One thing I’m definitely keeping for myself is these Dulse Flakes that will be taking my regular mayo and giving it a coastal twist.

Christmas Giveaways: The NB Box

As we’ve gotten settled into our kitchen over the last year, I’ve been constantly blown away by the incredible culinary creations that Dan comes up with, so I made sure to stock up on a few spices for him to try with his next kitchen adventure.

Christmas Giveaways: The NB Box

There are so many delicious local products I’m so excited to try with my family in the upcoming year. And so you can enjoy the absolute magic of exploring an NB Box for yourself, they are giving away a $100 gift card so you can build your own box. And if every item in that box makes its way under the tree with your name on it, we’re not judging! Get the details on how to enter below.

    So many reasons to love NB – but what I’ve loved exploring this summer is all the hidden gems, coastal hiking trails, beaches all to myself, sea glass treasures – lighthouses on every corner, so much to discover!
