Hammock Pack’s Hudson Valley November 2013!

I’m always thrilled to get my box from Hammock Pack with all the unique handmade items that are included.

On top of the tissue paper, upon opening the box, is the product insert.

The theme for November is Hudson Valley. “The Hudson Valley is an absolutely beautiful region in New York State. Just north of NYC, it’s full of stunning scenery and charming towns. From the Hudson River to the Catskills, local artisans are crafting all the essentials needed for a relaxing escape including lovely soap and indulgent treats. After your visit, we hope you’re excited for next month’s doorstep getaway!” First look.

We got another handmade soap which is always nice, from Comfort & Joy Soap Co.. I really really love how Hammock Pack includes websites on their insert, next to the product descriptions. It makes blogging about the box such a breeze without having to look up each product’s website! “Owner, Lisa has one mission and that’s to bring comfort and joy to her customers. Each bar of her handmade soap is a rich, luxurious treat for your skin. The scents, including Cucumber Melon and Persian Pear, are as delightful as the packaging.” I received Smoky Vetiver, a very manly smelling soap.

I like how the bar soap is in a cute bag! It was a big strong in scent for me, but I might give it a try later.

Some cute coasters from Wishbone Letterpress. Made in Kingston, NY. “Husband/wife team, Danielle and Joe, handprint these adorable coasters from their Kingston studio. This colorful set will be useful when having company over for the holidays.” I love them! I used a few as a base for some gifts I gave out early since I won’t be in Nebraska to give my friends their gifts later.

This Hot CInnamon Spice tea from Harney & Sons literally tastes like Red Hots candy. Made in Millerton, NY. “Warm up tis season with a delicious cup of the Hudson Valley’s finest tea. It’s the perfect blend of cinnamon, orange peels, and sweet cloves.”

For the sweet treat, a Gluten-free brownie made in Rhinecliff, NY by Savvy Girl Baking Company. “So rich and fudgy, you’ll want to keep tis gluten-free chocolate chip brownie all to yourself.” I can’t wait to try this!

Cinnamon Maple Almonds made in Albany, NY by Our Daily Eats is the last item in the box. “Drive along the scenic Hudson River while snacking on these tasty almonds. Not only are they packed with protein and fiber, but they also make a great sweet treat.”

This was a good box, and I particularly appreciate the handmade soap and brownie.
