12 Treats & Sweets of Christmas


“On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me, Three French Hens.”


This well-known English Christmas carol is believed by many to have French origins. Case in point – the French Hens in the third stanza, which refer to three varieties of chickens in France at the time of the song’s origin: the Crevecoeur, Houdans and the La Fleche. While a French Hen does sound positively quaint, we think your true love might enjoy just as much a bottle of French wine enclosed in one of our beautifully engraved wooden wine boxes.  These elegant wine boxes are hand-crafted of opulent birch, and feature dovetail joints, sliding panels and engraved messages inside and out. You can choose from single, double or triple bottle boxes. Adding more delight to this gift is that a tree is planted for every box purchased.

    I love the box – so want one for my Godfather’s 50th anniversary. Is that possible?
