Vermont Made Christmas Gift Ideas

Vermont-Made Holidays Gifts for 2016

Made-in-Vermont Christmas Gift Ideas for 2016 I love nothing more than giving gifts. I would rather give gifts than receive something any day. I spend hours on end every Christmas season researching and brainstorming the very best gifts for the people in my life. I always like to […]

Ann Clark Cookie Cutters

Made in Vermont: Ann Clark Cookie Cutters

I’m the first to admit that I can’t follow directions. Not even the cartoonish Ikea directions that are supposed to be interpretable in every language. When you have a hard time following directions, baking can be a challenge. I pride myself on being able to open up the fridge […]

Vermont Smoke & Cure Real Sticks

Made-in-Vermont Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is shopping for stocking stuffers. Just because the gifts are tiny doesn’t mean you can’t come up with inventive gifts to fill up a stocking. I could fill the biggest stocking hanging from the chimney with care with Vermont-made stocking stuffers without the […]

Made-in-Vermont Gifts for the Foodie in Your Life

Let’s be real… a big part of why we Vermonters live in this great state other than the natural beauty, the warm people who comprise our community, the lack of traffic, the clean water and air, the slippery slopes and the mountains that keep calling, is the food. I would argue […]

On a regular basis, I still make […]

10 Vermont-Made Stocking Stuffer Ideas

This year, Randy and I decided to do stocking stuffers for each other rather than a larger gift, given we’re finally giving in a buying our very own snowblower (how have we lasted this long in Vermont without one?). I’ve put together some of my favorite made-in-Vermont stocking […]

Vermont Holiday Gift Guide

Made in Vermont Holiday Gift Guide

Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year, largely due to the fact that I love coming up with thoughtful gift ideas for friends and family. Living in Vermont makes gift giving easy with so many Vermont-made products, from art and clothing to beer and beauty products. […]

Green Mountain Mini Baked Donuts

Green Mountain Mini Baked, Barre, Vermont

I remember vividly the first time I came across a Krispy Kreme doughnut. It was on a high school field trip into New York City, and my classmates were loading up on dozens of sinful sweet treats at Penn Station: glazed crullers, chocolate sprinkles and vanilla kreme. I never understood […]
