I gave this gift to myself this weekend! But my husband and three year old also enjoyed these beautiful sweet treats. While out to dinner in downtown LA, we walked into Bottega Louie and couldn't resist bringing home our own little box of macarons. Once in line you are handed a card with a list of the macaron flavors. You fill in how many of each flavor you want (we got a box of 5 which costs $12.50, a box of 13 costs $32.50), take it to the register, and from there your macarons are packaged with care into a pretty gift-ready box! We sampled the Vanilla (my son's favorite), the Rose (my husband's favorite), Pistachio, Violet Cassis (my favorite), and Salted Caramel. We decided we need to go back and try more flavors some day. Of course, if you aren't in the area, you can pick up macarons from your local shop. Good for any occasion, birthday, Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, or for no reason at all...this makes for a sweet gift for a girlfriend, mom, sister, or yourself!
