A Gift-Giver’s Perfect Pairing

When it comes to group gifts, say, full-family, whole-home gifts, I think it’s so fun to put together a gift basket with yummy treats that everyone can share. You can rarely go wrong with consumables, and I like to include a variety of items–a couple of salty bites, some sweet treats, and then a beverage. 

That’s why a gift basket of mine is never complete without a tin of Young’s Seventh Heaven Pecan Sampling. This is a family company based in rural South Carolina that’s been providing my hometown with holiday treats since the 1940s. They are also the ones who grow and can the boiled peanuts you see at every truck stop on I-95 (which would also be a great gift basket addition). Great people, great company, delicious food. They make gift-giving easy! 

Coffee pairs exceptionally well with pecan praline. Just down the road in Greenville, South Carolina, there’s Purity Coffee. Purity Coffee is sourced and processed to the highest standards and it is endorsed by the wonderful ladies at The Ember Collective, a wellness community and publication that, unlike their new agey competitors, centers on real faith. Ember’s journals would be another great addition to a family gift basket–especially for health-conscious moms!
