Included in the box this month is a Holiday 2012 Gift Guide. Various gifts for women, men, and anyone. They have a category and then 3 items that go along with that category as gift suggestions, such as Gift Fun: Royal Rose Cocktail Syrup, John Allan's Sport Conditioning Shampoo, and John Varvatos  Star USA Holiday Gift Set along with the prices you can purchase them for.

The products in my box...

Atelier Cologne
Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolue
Thanks to spicy ginger and a touch a bergamot, this sexy new rose scent is more sophisticated than sweet. Top notes of Italian bergamot sourced from Calabria blend seamlessly with fresh Chinese ginger and Turkish rose essence. Next, the fragrance opens to a core of Turkish rose absolue and exotic incense from Somalia. Balancing the sweetness are base notes of Indonesian patchouli and earthy Indian papyrus.

This has a nice clean, flowery smell to it. Something I will enjoy sampling but would probably never buy for myself. If it was more rose-smelling, it would remind me of the stereotypical "old lady" perfume, but isn't quite to that point thankfully!

Sample Size: normal perfume sample size

Buy 30 ml for $75

Miracle Skin Transformer
Vanish Instant Imperfection Corrector
Before applying makeup, prep skin with this serum-infused primer, which has optical diffusers that mask imperfections. As a serum, this skin corrector works overtime to defend your skin from all the major threats of aging. The antioxidant superduo of stabilized vitamin C and ergothionene reduce fine lines by improving elasticity and increasing collagen production, while plant extracts brighten your complexion and protect it from sun damage and environmental stress. Simultaneously, imperfection-blurring optical diffusers instantly help give your skin a smooth, poreless finish.

Sample Size: 0.1 fl oz / 3 ml

Oscar Blandi
Pronto Texture & Volume Spray
This light, nonsticky spray gives dry hair a voluminous, sexy, tousled look. Spray from ends to roots for best results. It's great for updos, too! There is some serious science behind this sleek spray: Zeolite, a natural volcanic mineral, actually removes toxins to keep your hair from losing volume throughout the day. Keratin proteins strengthen hair, and UV absorbers keep your color looking gorgeous.

Sample Size: 28.3 g / 1 oz

All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer
Color: Pink Shimmer
Add a touch of this luminescent fluid to your cheekbones or d├ęcolletage, or mix with your foundation for an all-over glow. A mix of antioxidants and grapeseed oil conditions dry skin, while soft light-reflecting pigments mask fine lines and imperfections. Three versatile hues—pink shimmer, rose gold shimmer, and bronze shimmer—fit any mood and occasion.

Chuao Chocolatier
Sample Flavor: Potato Chip
These bite-sized artisanal treats are made with premium Venezuelan cacao and come in a range of unexpected flavors.Don’t knock these unusual flavor combinations until you’ve tried them. This 7-piece set includes: Potato Chip (kettle chips and sea salt in milk chocolate), Sweet and Salty (chocolate with a hint of salt), Maple Bacon (crisp bacon with a dose of maple sweetness and smoked sea salt in milk chocolate), Honeycomb (amber honey caramelized into crispy pieces in dark chocolate), Salted Chocolate Crunch (toasted breadcrumbs with sea salt in dark chocolate), Spicy Maya (a spicy blend of pasilla chile, cinnamon, and cayenne in dark chocolate), and Firecracker (chipotle caramel fudge dotted with popping candy and salt in dark chocolate).

I just ordered some of these the other day with some of my BirchBox points! So i was excited to have a sample to try while I wait for mine to arrive. I had to try it out - SO delicious!!!! Yum! It is just big enough to take care of the chocolate craving you can get. The sample I got also gives that sweet and salty combination that it so good too, and has a slight crunch to it to go along with the smooth chocolate taste!

Sample Size: 0.39 oz / 11 g (1 flavor)
Full Size: Buy a 7 pack for $7.95
