Holiday Gift Guide

2020 has been tough on us all so we can’t think of a better reason to spread a little holiday cheer this season. Whether it’s a beautiful, handcrafted gift for a loved one, a drive-by surprise for a dear friend, or a package shipped cross-country, let your friends and family know you’re thinking of them. This season, in addition to our thoughtfully curated gift guide, we’re bringing you a collection of gifts-to-go and curbside pick-up. You can celebrate the season effortlessly, grab any last-minute entertaining essentials, and perhaps gain a little peace of mind while checking a few things off your list.

So how does it work? You can shop online, you can give us a call about that fabulous item you saw on our social media feed or the last time you were in, or you can simply shop in person and have us wrap-up your parcels and pick them up in a few hours. Just make sure to allow 2 hours for pick-up and if you’re ordering online, add “Curbside Pick-Up” to the order notes.

As always, we are so very grateful for your continued support of our small {but mighty} business, our community, and our wonderful team. Remember to shop and ship early this holiday season… because 2020 is sure to keep us on our toes for the remainder of the year

Now onto our favorite gifts of the season:

Gourmet Gifts

‘Tis the season for snacking… let’s be honest, ‘tis the year of snacking so why rein it in now?! Our collection of artisan-crafted, gourmet goods are ideal to throw in a bowl when guests pop by, a great hostess gift that will be opened and consumed on the spot, or perfect for gifts around the office, the school, and the neighborhood.

  • From Italy with Love*: Our hand-crafted panettone is a rich, brioche bread studded with candied fruit and scented with natural vanilla. Traditionally enjoyed after Christmas dinner with a glass of bubbly, but even better toasted the next day, as French toast, or in bread pudding. Crafted in the Abruzzo region of Italy and beautifully wrapped in festive paper, panettone makes a gorgeous gift. And don’t forget the biscotti! Our Tuscan Biscotti di Prato with Almonds makes a delicious sweet treat with an after-dinner wine or are perfect for dunking in coffee.
  • Cookie Exchange: Piled high with cookies and a cookbook, this melamine tartan plaid tray is a sweet (and socially-distanced) way to spread a little neighborhood cheer. Complete with a gift-box of buttery, crunchy speculoos cookies, and a Christmas cookbook with more than 60 holiday bakes, this is a great go-to gift for teachers, the neighbors, or the hostess-with-the-mostess.
  • The Cocoa Bar is Open: Our hot cocoa kit is an indulgent gift for grandkids and grown-ups alike, complete with two holiday mugs, a tin of drinking chocolate, peppermint spoons, and a bag of handsome little snowmen marshmallows. For those grown-up kids, we highly recommend popping a bottle of peppermint schnapps in the mix!
  • Leckerlee Lebkuchen: Say that 5 times fast! Baked locally in Longmont, CO, these are the freshest, most delicious Lebkuchen available outside Germany (and possibly inside too!) This artisanal treat embodies the classic flavors of the holidays with its gingerbread essence, rich flavor, and chewy, cake-like texture. Packed in charming, alpine holiday tins, these babies come ready for gifting.
  • Heritage Shortbread: No holiday season is complete without the authentic taste of gourmet Scottish shortbread. This treasured family recipe is handmade in South Carolina’s Lowcountry using time-honored techniques. Accompanied by a set of 4 festive, tartan plaid, melamine canape plates, a tin of Heritage Shortbread is the perfect gift for the sweet tooth on your list.

Gifts for Her

Wife, mom, sister, gal-pal, let’s be honest – whoever she is, she deserves to be celebrated in a major way for keeping the ship afloat this year! Make her holidays merrier with relaxing personal care products, an artisan-crafted keepsake, or gorgeous jewelry and accessories.

  • The Cashmere of Faux Fur*: Beautifully crafted from the finest luxury faux-fur, our vests, jackets, and accessories will keep her warm this winter. Each piece is impeccably crafted, beautifully lined, and celebrates cruelty-free fashion.
  • Baubles & Bangles*: They’re a girl’s best friend for a reason. Whether it’s stylish gold bangles and cuffs, strands of wild pearls, or exquisite replica stones with the look and feel of real, our collection of designer jewelry is luxury she can live in. Fill her stocking with what she really wants this holiday season.
  • Sweet Relaxation*: If there was ever a time to hit pause and settle into a relaxing routine, now would be it. Bjorn’s Honeybee Hemp products are locally harvested in Boulder, CO and incorporate organically-grown hemp from Colorado’s front range. They’re perfect for reducing anxiety, aches & pains, or getting to sleep. But not to worry, they’re not psychoactive so you won’t get the “funny feeling.” Try a teaspoon of honey in your tea, on toast, or straight from the jar. The CBD relaxing body lotion and relief salve are perfect for moisturizing your skin and a great way to start the day on a calming note or to unwind at night.
  • Luxe Pads*: Extra thick paper with gold foil initials nestled in chic, lucite trays are just awaiting your lists, your thoughts, your plans, your brilliant ideas…and even your love notes. Perfect for your bestie, around the office, or a self-gift. Stock-up and stash them in your kitchen, office, living room, or heck, even the car.
  • Rustic & Refined: Take gifting to the next level this holiday season with a gorgeous gift for her home or office. A beautiful, hand-poured Lafco candle tucked into an exquisite Jan Barboglio container featuring hand-forged iron roses will bring a warm glow to any space.

Buys for the Guys

The man who has everything, yea we know him well. Fear not, with our selection of thoughtful and unique men’s gifts, you’re sure to find something for even the hardest of men to shop for.

  • Talk Dirty to Me: Shaken or stirred, our Dirty Martini Kit is sure to make his holidays merrier. Packed with two martini glasses, festive reindeer olive picks, an olive jar, and our barrel-aged, triple filtered dirty martini juice. Trust us, it’ll be the cleanest dirty martini he’s ever drunk. So, throw in a bottle of vodka and get to merry-making!
  • Home Office*: Working from home, you say? Elevate his office with our selection of distinctive desk clocks and photo frames. Thick beveled glass, stout brass accents, and retro-inspired designs will bring functionality and a touch of masculine character to his man-cave.
  • Salty Dog: A pinch of this, a dash of that. Our handsome marble salt cellar and a gourmet salt pairing is the perfect gift for the gourmand in your life. From hand-harvested traditional sea salts to spicy blends, our gourmet salts add a briny burst of flavor to meats, veggies, and even craft cocktails.
  • Make it Personal*: Whether the grill or the bar is his home-base, our selection of handcrafted, hard rock maple grill boards and sand-cast aluminum wine chillers are made all the more special with a custom monogram or personal touch. Good things take time, so shop early for personalized pieces.
  • Wine Not: For the resident somm, our handcrafted Italian pewter bottle coaster is the ultimate accessory. Elevate every bottle with the artisanry and old-world elegance of Match Pewter.

Gifts for the Home & Hostess

This year, chances are you’re being hosted by your nearest and dearest so those hostess gifts and handcrafted home accents should come from the heart. Our collection of gifts for the home will bring comfort and joy this holiday season. 

  • The Perfect Pair: for a gorgeous go-to-gift this holiday season Agraria’s signature Bitter Orange Potpourri blends roses, French lavender, rosemary, and cloves, with their original Bitter Orange oil. We’ve nestled each luxurious hand-packed box of potpourri in a luxe nickel tray creating the perfect presentation in or out of the box.
  • Branch Out*: A holiday tradition in the making; brilliant, hand-blown glass evergreens from Simon Pearce. From sapling-sized to stunningly stately, these iconic glass trees bring the quiet beauty of winter to the holiday season and are a wonderful gift to give year-after-year.
  • Classic Christmas*: Our festive nutcrackers boast all the trimmings. With beautiful handcrafted detail, ornate crowns, and just the right amount of whimsy, they’re a gorgeous gift the whole family will love.
  • Comfort & Joy: Cozy-up to winter warmth with our ultra-plush faux-fur throws. Soft and supple to the touch, they’re a gorgeous way to add richness and depth to any space… and did we mention, they’re machine-washable!
  • Snack Attack: Always welcome at any gathering, our selection of small-batch, artisan preserves, seasonal spiced nuts, and sweet treats make an easy to grab but thoughtful gift. Level-up and combine them with a festive bowl or spreaders and you’ve got yourself the perfect hostess gift.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

This year, Mother’s Day is looking different than ever before. We find ourselves in challenging times but everywhere we look, we are all in this together, trying to support one another, and to navigate these uncertain times with as much grace as we can muster. At the helm is mom, working from home, juggling homeschooling, cooking 3-meals a day… and then some. As we continue to look forward to a future on the other side of all of this, we are focusing on the positive; there are still special occasions to celebrate, gratitude to be given, and love to share.

We put our heads together (virtually, of course) and came up with a collection of thoughtful and easy-to-give gifts from a distance to remind mom, grandma, or even your gal-pal, that you’re thinking of her, sending love, and looking to brighten her day.
