The Best St. Louis Gift

If you’ve ever wanted to package up all the good things about St. Louis and give them as a gift…keep reading. This is awesome!St. Louis in a Box

St. Louis in a Box allows you to “give the gift of the Gateway City.” In a box, of course. It’s a new service that allows you to pack up a care package full of St. Louis goodies and mail it to friends and family. It’s a great gift idea for a family member that’s moved away, or for your college kid who’s feeling a little homesick. 

Or you know, a Cubs fan.

We received a complimentary gift box to see exactly what’s in a Box-o-St. Louis. Here’s what I got in my deluxe custom box:

  • Dad’s Scotch Oatmeal cookies
  • Old Vienna Red Hot Riplets potato chips
  • G&W Sausage Landjager beef snack sticks
  • Volpi Genova salami
  • Switzer’s chewy cherry licorice twist
  • Billy Goat chips
  • 2 Vess Orange “Whistle” soda
  • a Schlafly Brewery bottle opener and coasters
  • St. Louis Cardinals can koozie
  • an “STL” oval bumper sticker

Everything in the box was a classic St. Louis product. Of course what really shocked me was that someone could mail me two cans of Vess soda, a bag of cookies and some chips and everything would come out of the box in perfect shape! Not a problem at all.St. Louis in a box

There are two standard boxes to choose from, or you can pack your own. The Orginal Box has an assortment of St. Louis snacks and some Cardinals goodies; or the Stadium in a Box, with all Cardinals souvenirs and a bag of peanuts. Boxes start at $25 and $5 will ship the box anywhere in the U.S.–and if you’re sending to a military APO / FPO shipping is free

Custom boxes allow you to pick and choose your favorite items from their expansive list. Everything on the list, from cookies to BBQ sauce are shelf-stable, so they will arrive at your loved one’s doorstep in perfect shape. They’ll be adding gooey butter cake in the fall, when the weather won’t melt your treats. 

I really do like the custom box option! Say you’re not a fan of Red Hots (gasp!) you can send Old Vienna PORK STEAK BBQ Chips! Yum! Toss in a River Front Times, a bag of stadium peanuts and you’ll cure someone’s St. Louis blues as soon as they rip into that box.

Head on over to St. Louis in a Box and send the city to someone you love. Or bookmark it for Christmas (or a birthday!) and you’ll have your shopping wrapped up in a snap!
