    Whatever it is that French women have, Julie Hasson’s got it. The effortless sophistication and well-rounded worldliness we associate with our Parisienne counterparts, personify Julie and her sweet new gifting service, a*pour toi. Julie curates each gift item in the collection of healthful sweets, savories, teas and other goodies from her own relationships with the best artisans around the world. A look inside an a*pour toi gift box (we love the Elegance box with truffle sauce and to-die-for raspberry truffles) is like joining Julie in her culinary travels. Her taste is spot-on, so you can trust the gift boxes will delight the snobbiest of foodie friends – and each item is truly high-quality and all-natural.

    If you’re going to treat a friend, this is one of the most natural and elegant ways to do it! Check out their gift selections here and enjoy our look at a day in the life of Julie below…

    • A day with Parisienne foodie Julie Hasson

    • I always start my day by...

      waking up very early to fit in my morning exercise - a 30 minute run and at least 10 minutes of yoga. Being an entrepreneur is like being an athlete - those 40 minutes bring me the concentration and inner peace I need for the rest of the day.

    • I never leave the house without...

      drinking a matcha tea and taking a moment to feel good inside and out. I'm something a a tea afficionado and I love to take time for the soothing ritual of making great tea.

    • My work routine...

      is very active! I'm constantly on the hunt for new healthy luxury brands to include in our a*pour toi gift boxes and working with our current brands to perfect the products we're currently developing. Working with brands from around the world keeps me on my toes all day!

    • My favorite part of the day is...

      that very early part of my morning when the sun i rising and everything is peaceful.

    • I'm most productive when...

      I am brain-storming with my team or meeting some of the inspirational  people behind the brands we include in our a*pour toi gift boxes.

    • I take a break by...

      taking a walk on the beach or getting back to nature with a little outdoors activity. There's also nothing like stopping for a quick call with someone you love.

    • Lunch is usually...

      one of my favorite times of day. I stop to spend a moment with people I love and enjoy a few healthy dishes. In France, we always balance our days with some sweets in addition to healthy foods. I always finish lunch with a few a*pour toi treats - like truffles!

    • To find inspiration I...

      love to hit the streets for some shopping and trend-hunting. Street life is amazing in all of my favorite cities around the world. I travel so much - Paris, New York, LA, London, Italy, Brazil - and I love meeting new faces and connecting with old friends and mentors.

    • A day never goes by without...

      the balance of 80% a*pour toi business and 20% enjoyment with friends and family. This is the a*pour toi lifestyle. A*pour toi means "a present for you". Relationships are the key to making every moment of life memorable, filled with love and enjoyable.

    • I end the day by...

      spending a little time dreaming about new ways to bring the best new products and brands into our gift boxes. I love what I do!

    From our friends

    1. This interview could have been so much more. Julie seemed reluctant to answer anything that would have provided an insight into the real her. Just one big advertisement for her business. Very disappointing!
