Nice Surprise During the Holidays: November Degustabox!

November Degustabox Treats

With all of the hustle and bustle that go into the holidays and all of the time and energy we each put into making our loved ones happy, it is nice to treat ourselves with a little surprise. My Degustabox in November provided me with great novelties giving me a much needed aside here and there during the holiday rush. This is my fourth Degustabox and each has truly surprised me and introduced me to new products I love!
