Host Gifts for the Holidays


The holiday season is full of gift giving. Don’t show up to your next holiday party empty handed! The Community Food Co-op has the perfect gift for any host or hostess.

The Perfect Wine

Show off your wine knowledge by bringing the perfect pairing to the meal. This 2019 Chorey les Beaune “Les Beaumonts” pairs well with game birds, such as turkey.

Or, bring a celebratory bottle! This late-bottled port from Fonseca is known for its luscious fruitiness, a perfect dessert wine.

Holiday Cakes


Take the labor of making dessert off their plate. The Co-op is filled with grab-n-go seasonal desserts! Pick up a beautiful Buche de Noel, a decadent Winter Wonderland Cake, or another sweet treat filled with fall flavors.

Seasonal Candles

Big Dipper Wax Works has done it again! They have candles shaped as holiday gnomes, trees, stars, pinecones, and more. Pick out a candle in their favorite winter scent and a matching aromatherapy mist.

Need a less festive, but still unique candle? Pick up a reclaimed bottle candle from Stone Candles at either Co-op location.

Local Jam, Honey, or Preserves

Upgrading a pantry staple is the perfect way to make your host’s day. Pick out a local jam or honey at the Co-op. Bow Hill blueberry confiture and honey from Bee Works are perfect for celebrating our local bounty!

Seasonal Beverages

For nonalcoholic beverages, turn to their favorite local coffee or tea. Who doesn’t want to get cozy with their favorite hot beverage this time of year?

To celebrate seasonal flavors, bring a bottle of sparkling cider! The Co-op carries many varieties including pumpkin spice, rich with the flavors of autumn.

Florals or Greens

Is your go-to gift flowers? Switch it up with a dried bouquet from local Brackenshire Farm! Their dried flower bouquets, wreaths, and ornaments can last for years if kept dry and out of direct sunlight.

If you know your host has a green thumb, pick up a potted plant. A clay pot of local herb plants is the perfect balance of beautiful and useful. These bundles feature staple herbs such as sage, rosemary, and more.

Decorative Cloths

For the practical host, pick out some Swedish dish cloths that feature holiday prints. Swedish dish cloths are an eco-friendly alternative to paper towels and come in dozens of prints and colors.

A Classic Card

Nothing is better than hearing your hosting efforts have been appreciated! Pick up a card adorned with art by local artists and fill it with thanks, or maybe even a Co-op gift card.
