Style in the City: Two chances left to snag a Bon Air Box

BON AIR, Va. (WRIC) — We all know you get extra special bonus points when you give someone a locally made gift. They open it and immediately think that you’re obviously super hip and in the know about cool happenings in town, not to mention their appreciation that you cared enough to think ahead and choose a thoughtful present that can’t be purchased on those final pre-holiday days when the mall seems to be open 20 out of 24 hours.

Well, I’ve got a way you can quadruple down on the impression you’ll create: snag a Bon Air Box. Thirty-five dollars gets you eight ounces of Ironclad Coffee Roasters Whole Bean Special Holiday Blend Coffee, your choice of Lemon Basil or Rosemary gourmet salt from Hummingbird Gardens, your choice of all-natural soothing Lavender, deep-cleaning Lemongrass or exfoliating Peppermint Coffee soap from Bon Air Naturals, and four fancy thank-you cards from PaperFreckles (we might as well call it three because the recipient will be sending you one thanking you for the awesome gift!).

Yes, all of these local creators are based in Bon Air, hence the theme of the box. With the selection included here, these boxes seem like great options for hostess gifts, teacher gifts, work gift exchanges, or anyone who likes supporting local businesses.

How do you get your box, you ask? Stop by Perk this Sunday or next from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. when different box contributors will be manning a table in front with the boxes and all the fun selections for sale.
