Update: This post is for the 2016 Holiday Gift Boxes. Check out this post for information on 2017 Holiday Boxes.
As many of you know, Curtis and I tried out truLOCAL for the first time a few weeks ago and we are big fans! They are a new Canadian company offering monthly delivery plans of high-end, locally sourced meat, fish, and poultry products which are all:
- Free Run: Support humane animal treatment
- 100% Local: Sourced from within Ontario
- Antibiotic-Free with No Added Hormones: High quality and clean
truLOCAL is offering some unique gifts for the holidays and I’m excited to share them with you.
First are their E-gift cards which are perfect for family, friends, colleagues, and suppliers who love to cook and value clean, local, and humane alternatives to what’s often available at the grocery store. One of the things I love most about this idea is that it’s an experiential gift – the recipient gets to enjoy not only the process of cooking and eating, but also customizing their own box! From bacon to ground turkey, steak to chicken breasts, there are a ton of options to choose from.
Second is their Holiday Steak Box which includes 5 gourmet AAA New York Strip Steaks which are between 14-16 oz. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what “AAA” meant (since I don’t eat beef!) but a quick search showed that it is a very high quality assigned to beef that is juicy and tender and also resilient in a variety of cooking methods (read: will still taste good even if not cooked on a BBQ)! Score one for condo cooking!
Curtis is a meat lover, but because I don’t eat beef, we don’t buy steak all that often. I gifted him the truLOCAL Holiday Steak Box but knew that if I waited until Christmas, it would be too late to share on the blog as a gift idea! That brings us to Curtis receiving a giant box of meat in early December for seemingly no reason 🙂
My second experience ordering through truLOCAL was just as easy as the first. On their Holiday Gift Ideas page, next to the Holiday Gift Box, I selected “Gift This Now”, and followed the easy prompts to enter my billing information, Curtis’ contact and shipping information, and was even offered the option to add a gift message! truLOCAL includes handwritten holiday cards with these boxes which is such a thoughtful touch.
Curtis absolutely LOVED the gift and we couldn’t believe how large the steaks were!
If you’re looking for a unique and experiential gift, I highly recommend trying out truLOCAL. With both gift options, all you have to do is visit truLOCAL’s website and follow the easy steps to order your gifts – no trips to the mall or gift wrapping required.
Don’t forget that if you’d like to try out truLOCAL for yourself, use the Promo Code KATEM10 and Referral Code FP53NKBG7Q1J for 10% off your first order. This will make the small box $112.50 (instead of $125) and the regular box $225 (instead of $250).
If you give truLOCAL a try, let me know how you enjoy it!
