Best gift yet, Rikki!

You’ve outdone yourself, Rikki. I can’t wait to share this offer with my travel-loving friends. The creativity you’ve used to think about what people would want in the Experience Box touches me— what a beautiful way to introduce people to your friends! I find it so thoughtful that your choices touch all our senses, and the fact that these boxes support these outstanding artisans just adds to the big value of the boxes. Beautiful!
