It’s that time of year again! This year’s holiday gift guide is going to be a little different, just like the holidays. We have decided to defer our large family holiday gatherings until after the pandemic is over. Much of my shopping will be online. Therefore, I wanted to make sure my gift picks are especially thoughtful. Some of my favorites from last year’s holiday gift guide made it to the 2020 Holiday Gift Guide but there are some new additions too!
For the Chocolate Lover
Sundaes Best Hot Fudge Sauce is delicious!!!! We love it. My favorite is the Bittersweet, followed by the Original. Mark loves the Caramel and the Peanut Butter. Trust me, the chocolate lover on your list will not be disappointed!

For The Person Who Loves Bling
Close 2 UR Heart jewelry made it to the list again this year. Why? The jewelry is perfect for the person who’s hard to buy for. For my friends who like to kayak, I get the kayak necklace. For my wine loving friends, the Cheers necklace is great. There truly is something for everyone and the price point is good too!

For Those Who Need To Chill The F*** Out
Face it, 2020 has been a very stressful year. And some of us need as much stress relief as we can possibly get. That’s why I love Lavenlair Farm so much. They organically grow both fragrant and culinary lavender and use it to make all their products. My favorite is their lavender honey. The bees on their farm pollenate the lavender which gives it a unique, delicious flavor. So, so good! I love the tea too!

For Those Who Love Crystals, Minerals and Gem Stones
I got the most adorable power bracelets for my sister, Kerri, from Tushita Heaven when their brick and mortar store was open in Saratoga Springs, NY. They’ve closed the store in Saratoga but you can still shop their website. Why not surround yourself, or whoever you give this to, with positive energy??? Grab a bunch and stack them up! They’re really cute.

For Someone You Want To Send a Hug
Most food gift baskets are full of filler and crap but not the ones from Holbrook Cottage. Their baskets are fantastic!!!! I have used them to thank colleagues for referrals or as sympathy baskets. I highly recommend the Farm to Table gift baskets. Free continental US shipping too!

For The Meat Lover
I LOVE giving gift cards for my local butcher shop. It’s a great way to give the foodie in your life a special treat. My favorite local butcher shop is Primal. They have two butcher shops in my area – one in Albany (Stuyvesant Plaza) and one in Saratoga (Wilton Plaza, Exit 15). They offer delivery too!
If you’re not local to my area, see if a local butcher in your area offers gift cards. They make a truly wonderful and unique gift. To order, visit https://primalyourlocalbutcher.com/.
I hope this makes your 2020 holiday shopping easy!
