Give a Gift that Lasts
Sometimes the gifts that are the most exciting are the ones that keep on giving. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters offers several coffee and provisions gift packages that deliver an enticing gift every month to the recipient. With the Coffee and Treats gift, the recipient (or yourself if you choose!) will receive a pound of coffee each month (many of their coffees are fair trade and certified organic) along with goodies like chocolate biscotti, Vermont maple syrup, or mini peppermint pillows. For more information call (800) 223-6768 or visit www.GreenMountainCoffee.com.
With Allison’s Gourmet cookies and brownies you can send a package of home-baked sweetness—all products are vegan and 100% organic—to those on your list who don’t have time to do the baking themselves. Allison’s Gourmet has a brownie of the month club as well as a cookie of the month club, featuring flavors like Pumpkin Spice, Vanilla Almond, and my favorite Double Chocolate Chunk!
