Bring some much-needed joy into your home this holiday season with goods from these New England artisans. Whether you’re looking for a gift for your favorite foodie, or just want to add a bit of holiday cheer, check out these food and drink gift boxes from three local purveyors.
Eastern Standard Provisions
Artisanal Soft Pretzel Gift Box
Just over a year ago, Eastern Standard Provisions Co. was just starting up. Now, the brand is one of the fastest-growing artisan snack food companies in the country. For this holiday season, the popular gourmet soft pretzel producer has launched three different holiday-themed gift boxes: Happy Everything ($99.99), ‘Tis The Season ($49.99), and Merry & Bright ($25.99).
Each box comes with a curated mix of the brand’s hand-twisted pretzels, flavored salts, and gourmet dipping sauces, along with a holiday-themed sticker. Based in Boston and founded by a group of chefs, restaurateurs, and food-service professionals, Eastern Standard Provisions ships its heat-and-eat pretzels fresh to your doorstep and customers have the option of eating them right away or freezing them for later.
“All the Basics” Cocktail and Barware Kit
Caledonia Spirits, the Vermont-based distiller of America’s most awarded gin, Barr Hill Gin, has released its own craft cocktail set for the holidays. Made of high-quality stainless steel, this classy barware set features two shaker tins, a four-prong Hawthorne strainer, a two sided-jigger, and a bar spoon.
Also included in the set are a few experiential elements: access to a cocktail class with Caledonia Spirits Beverage Director Sam Nelis and a cocktail recipe book. Aspiring home mixologists will adore this gift from Caledonia Spirits, a well-respected independent distillery that is known for its on-site craft cocktail program and stunning spirits (all made with raw northern honey).
Gourmet Vermont Maple Syrup Gift Box
A favorite brand of breakfast lovers, cocktail enthusiasts, and all-around foodies, Vermont-based maple producer Runamok Maple has launched a pair of new gift boxes this holiday season. With large and small options, these gift boxes feature a selection of Runamok Maple’s pure, infused, barrel-aged, and smoked maple syrups.
Known for its incredible flavors like Ginger Root-Infused, Cinnamon+Vanilla-Infused, Bourbon Barrel-Aged, and Pecan Wood-Smoked, Runamok Maple’s syrups come in beautiful glass bottles that almost resemble a classy bottle of premium whiskey. For the gift boxes, customers can choose from curated selections by the Runamok Maple team or they can opt for a custom option for just a few dollars more.
