St. Louis in a Box

IMG_4422If you could put St. Louis in a box, what would you fill it with? answers that exact question. I recently had the chance to check out one of “the original” boxes from St. Louis in a Box. It was sent in just a few days and was filled with goodies straight from the Lou. Before I get to what was exactly in the box I just want to say that this is a fantastic idea. I have many friends who once lived here in St. Louis but have now gone onto new locations. This is the perfect gift to send their way. Or even to friends that have never been here. What better way then to send them a box filled with what they are missing. It doesn’t matter if it’s for Christmas or just to say “hey”, St. Louis in a Box is the perfect way to send a piece of St. Louis to anybody in the world. Better yet, you could even just send one to a friend or family from the area. How cool would this be for a party, wedding, or corporate get together as attendance gifts or prizes? Why get flowers and chocolate for your significant other when you can get this instead!!! Know any Cubs fans? Send them The Stadium box!

Give The Gift of The Gateway City!

The Original, which is what I received, is $25 and can be shipped anywhere in the world. If you are shipping to an APO/FPO military address it’s free! There are two other options for boxes, one is a custom box for $30 where you can pick the items that are added, and the Stadium box which features all St. Louis Cardinals items.

So let’s get down to what was in this box.

  • St. Louis Cardinals Mini-Helmet
  • Current issue of The Riverfront Times
  • Red Hot Riplets
  • Two Vess Whistle Orange Sodas
  • St. Louis Blues coolie
  • Dad’s Original Scotch Oatmeal Cookies
  • St. Louis Cardinals Lanyard
  • St. Louis Cardinals Pennant
  • St. Louis Mardi Gras beads
  • G&W Bavarian Style Landjager (Cajun Beef Stick and a Beef Stick Chipotle Style Landjager)
  • Schlaflys coasters and bottle opener
  • STL sticker

That is quite the list. I will say that the food did not last long. Red Hot Riplets are probably my favorite potato chips. They are hot and they are addictive. The Dad’s Original Scotch Oatmeal Cookies didn’t last long either. Soooo good. Anyone that receives St. Louis in a Box will not be disappointed. For those that wish to ship some gooey butter cake… Well that is shipped during the cooler months, so be sure to follow St. Louis in a Box on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for more info on when that will be happening.

The stuff in a box business model is pretty cool. There are a lot of different ones you can get, from pop culture items, to specific brands. I’ve been surprised with some of the options out there. But I gotta say, when I heard of St. Louis in a Box, I thought it was the best of them all. This is a great idea and the perfect way to represent our amazing city.

My name is Richie and I am a 38 year old father of two, a daughter and son. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network security administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
