GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
Labor Day weekend often means parties and gatherings. You’ll probably want to take a gift for your hosts. Food and wine still seems to remain the most popular choices .
This Dried Fruit Tray offers a fairly healthy variety of dried, including the unusual, fruit. And it makes a great presentation!
Harry and David has over 40 year-round retail stores in 24 states. In addition, a whole lineup of seasonal stores in strategic locations around the country.
The Snack Box is perfect as an addition to the gathering or for the host to snack on later.
$25 Harry and David
Whether they use it at this party or the next, would the Beehive Beverage Jar delight the perpetual host?

For those who like it hot, gift the Bull Snort Hot Sauce Sampler. They can use it for everyday meals or the next cookout get together. 5 heat levels to choose from. Are your hosts hot sauce connoisseurs able to handle the heat?

Sarabeth’s Gift Sampler is 6 delicious gifts in one. Plum cherry, orange apricot marmalade, strawberry raspberry, pineapple mango, mixed berry, and peach apricot preserves. Also makes a great gift for upcoming holidays. Pair it with a great bread and you’ll probably end up on your hosts’ holiday list! 4 ounce jars. Made in the USA
$25 Sur La Table
Or, go international and gift Swedish KANELBULLAR. Or, cinnamon rolls in America, but these are a lighter version. And have a subtle butter-sugar-cinnamon flavor. These will make a delicious light breakfast for the morning after the party. 6 wheat dough buns.
New Yorkers will definitely be able to get these by the Labor Day party. However, these Whisky Pickles were just too interesting to leave off the list. They seem to fit right in to any host party gift. Choose the hand-made WHISKEY SOUR PICKLE SPEARS or MAPLE BOURBON BREAD AND BUTTER PICKLE CHIPS,
to give your hosts a different take on pickles. Both include Finger Lakes Distilling rye whiskey or bourbon in the brine – so warn your gift recipient.
You may also find these unusual pickles through Brooklyn Brine’s national/regional retail partners: Whole Foods and Amazon; and Trader Joe’s. Wegmans, Big Y, and Sprouts. Also internationally in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Canada, Japan, France and Australia.
Happy Frugalista Shopping!
MAY YOU FIND THE PERFECT GIFT FOR YOUR HOST … AT THE PERFECT PRICE.
