It’s that time of year again – time for gift giving…and receiving (yay)! I recently learned about an awesome company called Thoughtfully and I am in love with their gift boxes! I received 3 different gift boxes and they were awesome! I received (1) the Bloody Mary World Tour – A Bloody Mary Lover’s Gift Set, (2) Movie Night – A Popcorn Lover’s Gift Set, and (3) Moscow’s Finest
– A Moscow Mule Lover’s Gift Set! Each set has it’s own story and was so much fun to unwrap!

With Thoughtfully, the goal is to gift with a story. Thoughtfully began with its founder’s passion for food and his love to explore. He returns from one of his journeys around the globe, the wildest rooftop party in Soho to the latest restaurant opening in Paris, bringing piles of mementos, including bottles, photos, menus, sauces, packaging and anything that inspires him.

“We simply need to capture those special moments in life – the design, the fashion, the lifestyle, the flavors, and fold them into a box. A gift box! Don’t we all want to share our personal experiences and gift something meaningful and authentic to the people that we love and care about the most?”

So they did. Armed with cameras and little leather bound journals they travelled the world, went to the best parties, took unusual cooking classes, dined in the coolest restaurants and hunted those beautiful, precious moments that make life unforgettable. The ones that make us feel alive. That inspire our memories and our stories.

At Thoughtfully, they believe that a gift should last long after the beautiful wrappings have been torn away. A truly thoughtful gift is not just a gesture but a memorable experience. They invite you to explore their assortment of hand curated adventures, and select the ones you love. Gift them to your friends and family and let them taste, see, smell and experience the stories of Thoughtfully.

The Story of Bloody Mary World Tour – A Global Quest for an Iconic Cocktail

At Thoughtfully, they had a dream: tour the world and explore the most fascinating, culturally inspired Bloody Marys. First stop Agra, India, where they enjoyed the extra spicy local mix. In Sicily, near Palermero’s beautiful bay, they serve one with an oregano twist. They loved the combination of garden celery and garlic in Greece’s stunning island of Lesbos. In Pasadena, Arizona, they were taken with the red cliffs and the surprising ghost pepper bite. There were many more, and after some fierce debate, they are proud to present a collection and recipe book of their 10 best global Bloody Marys.

Bloody Mary World Tour – A Bloody Mary Lover’s Gift Set retails for $99.99.

Movie Night – A Popcorn Lover’s Gift Set

In our home, we love to have movie nights and with movie nights comes Popcorn. Movie Night – A Popcorn Lover’s Gift Set is a great gift set to give, especially for the holidays, but can be enjoyed all year long! When you go to the movies, often times you have two options for popcorn – butter sauce or no butter sauce. The Popcorn gift sets from Thoughtfully include 4 colorful popcorn bags for the gourmet popping corn, as well as their A-list flavor seasonings of Kettle Corn, Ranch, Garlic-Parmesan and Cheddar-Bacon. These popcorn sets are enough to make movie night shine!

What’s In It

  • Four Colorful Popcorn Bags
  • Gourmet Popping Corn (24 oz)
  • Cheddar Bacon Popcorn Seasoning (2.5 oz)
  • Garlic Parmesan Popcorn Seasoning (2.5 oz)
  • Kettle Corn Popcorn Seasoning (2.5 oz)
  • Ranch Popcorn Seasoning (2.5 oz)


#Thoughtfully #GiftThoughtfully #Holiday #Gifts #Ambassador #ad


  • You’ll need 1.5 cups of olive oil and 2 tsp. butter (optional)
  • Add one and a half cups of oil and one kernel to a medium sized pan. Place the lid on top of the pan and turn the heat on high. Wait for the kernel to pop.
  • Once the kernel has popped, add one and a half cups of kernels (the whole burlap bag) to the pot, and replace the lid. Swirl occasionally to distribute the oil.
  • Once the kernels begin to pop, crack the lid slightly to allow the steam to escape.
  • When the popping slows, remove the pot from the stove, and place kernels into a heat safe bowl.
  • Add 1-2 TSP butter and mix throughout. Add seasoning to taste.

The Story of Movie Night – An (Accidentally) Inventive Popcorn Buffet

Some of the greatest human inventions are discovered by accident. Some of the best culinary combinations happen when an overly tired cook pours an unexpected ingredient into the wrong saucepan. In the Thoughtfully office, at the back kitchen, they have an endless spice rack dedicated to creative experimentation. One night, too lazy to make a real meal, yet craving the comforting, bold flavors, they invented some delicious gourmet popcorn. Cheddar bacon, Ranch, and Garlic Parmesan were added to freshly popped kernels, and a modern classic was born. Now, it’s their favorite movie night snack.

Movie Night – A Popcorn Lover’s Gift Set retails for $49.99.

The Story of Moscow’s Finest – Aristocratic Cocktail Culture

I’m always fascinated by the influence of architecture on culinary cultures. In Greece, the bright white houses with a turquoise touch inspire generous trays of food. See the resorts Chania on your next Greece trip. In Mexico, strong red colors of mud brick huts paint raw ceramic bowls. In Moscow, the capital of drama, magical cathedrals with shiny metal finishes influence plating design– at a restaurant set in a Stalin-era skyscraper, authentic Moscow Mules are served in copper mugs. The barman cuts ginger to spice the drink, adding pure local vodka from a babushka jigger. Aristocratic ornamented coasters and royal service put me in a tsar state of mind.

Moscow‘s Finest – A Moscow Mule Lover’s Gift Set retails for $89.99.

I love the different gift sets available through Thoughtfully! These are great gifts to both give and receive, plus there is a great variety of gift sets as well!
