It’s the gift giving time of year. Here is my suggestion for some fun local gift ideas:
I love the Wood From the Hood guys. They will make you a custom bench or counter top from reclaimed wood but I also love their simple MN Made Cribbage and Cutting Boards!
I love local choclatier BT Mcelrath. This year they have Dark Chocolate truffles, a make your own 9 piece truffle box and when you buy direct online you can save 20% with the promo code: Giftforall
Staying with the beer theme is the Beer Cap Trap – Why not have a wood six pack holder or a State MN wood carving to hold your Beer Caps!
For the spicy folks on your list get a full set of Heathers Dirty Good Seasonings. I use original on Chicken, Vintage in Pasta, Burlesque in chili – you basically cant go wrong with Heather Dirty Goodnes. Also Golden Figs Laurie Crowell makes her own spices, sugars and salts. Try a sugar cookie with her Chocolate salt sprinkled on top or sprinkle some on a Hot Cocoa.
Annie B’s Artisan candies are as good as they get – pick up a sweet little treat for $10
How about a little education on making coffee at home? I love this idea- Take a Class at Peace Coffee – then you can go out for a cup of peace coffee and breakfast!
