Something for Everyone

Gift Guide Group #1

1. For the Chocolate Lover Made with only the highest quality Belgian chocolate sourced from sustainably grown cocoa beans, Jelina Chocolates are truly exquisite. We also love Thorntons Chocolate, especially their wide array of luscious truffles, as well as House of Dorchester Chocolate. A classic selection of milk, white and dark chocolates, House of Dorchester chocolates are carefully crafted and beautifully presented in a ready-to-give book box. Know someone who prefers to sip her chocolate? Our new Dark Chocolate Cocoa is a semi-sweet delight with a smooth texture and rich taste.

2. For the Entertainer If you have a friend or family member who always has a candle (or three) lit when you come over, they’ll love our selection of Root Candles. Seasonal scents include Cinnamon Clove, Pine Needle and Peppermint Bark. Another gift they’re sure to use: Mrs. Meyer’s Hand Soap. Available in fresh, seasonal scents like Iowa Pine, Orange Clove and Peppermint, Mrs. Meyer’s soaps are made with plant-derived ingredients and rich essential oils. For something a little more festive, give our Harry and David Dried Fruit Tray featuring an array of tree-ripened, hand-picked fruits like Turkish apricots, pears, Angelino plums, apple rings and yellow peaches. We also have Caspari Holiday Crackers that pop open to reveal a hidden surprise—we even have crackers for your furry friends!

3. For the Hostess You can’t go wrong with classic holiday gifts, like The Fresh Market Panettone. Our panettone is produced in Italy using the classic “Piedmont Region” method, where a longer leavening cycle yields superior texture, aroma and flavor. Choose between regular and mini sizes. If your host or hostess has a green thumb, try our Bulb Gift Kits that make it easy to plant your own paperwhites, amaryllis and hyacinths. For snackers, opt for The Fresh Market Gourmet Popcorn Mix handcrafted with caramel popcorn and crushed peppermint, or baked-by-hand Rustic Bakery Christmas Cookie Jars. Want to give something that will last? Our stoneware platters and ceramic holiday dishes from Creative Co-Op make gorgeous gifts or unique additions to gift baskets.

Creative Ideas & Kitchen Essentials

Gift Guide Group #2

1. For the Kids It’s always fun to find unique and exciting gifts for the kids in your life. For a wow-worthy stocking stuffer (as long as you have a big stocking!), try our Jumbo Candy Cane. We also have Plush Animals with Candy Canes that make it easy to give two gifts in one. Know a kid who loves to play with her food? Hoch Edible Snow is 100% safe to eat and fun to play with, too. If you’d like to give something that everyone in the family can enjoy together, the Chocomaker Winter Cabin Kit makes for a fun, interactive gift. Each kit comes with three candy molds, chocolate wafers for building the structure and a variety of candy for decorating.

2. For the Foodie Everyone can use kitchen essentials, like Tea Towels and Aprons—especially the foodies in your life. Our tea towels are available in holiday and everyday designs and make a thoughtful addition to a custom gift baskets. If you’d like to add an apron, choose from everyday styles and holiday favorites (including festive elf and Mrs. Claus designs). Another kitchen must-have for the home cook: Villa Manodori Balsamic Vinegar. This versatile, artisanal Italian vinegar is made in limited quantities and aged in a series of oak, chestnut and juniper barrels for rich, robust flavor.

3. For the Homebody If you know someone who likes to cozy up at home, we have just the thing. Treat them to our Snowflake Pretzels + Coffee Combo: Yogurt covered pretzels paired with Snowflake Sugar Cookie Coffee, which is buttery with notes of vanilla and spice (and available for a limited time!).
