But... when it comes to the good friends, teachers, co-workers, etc, my mind goes blank and people end up with the same boring things that they always do. Gift card, anyone?
It would be nice to surprise someone with something unique though, wouldn't it? Just to see the look on their face or receive the happy phone call later from someone who had the pleasure of receiving something different — and bonus points if it happened to be extremely delicious as well.
This year, it's time that I look no further than the stylish, unique and very tasty options easily available from Hickory Farms.
For more than 60 years, Hickory Farms has been committed to personalized service and brings the best of Midwest values and unwavering quality to consumers in North America and the U.S. Armed Forces all over the world.
And not only is Hickory Farms known for their amazing selection of sausages, cheeses and other specialty foods, but their commitment to the environment (their 100% recyclable packages are environmentally friendly in every way), their support of our troops, and their incredible work to help end hunger (they have a fantastic partnership with Share Our Strength) make ordering from Hickory Farms a no-brainer.
When the Hickory Farms Party Planner Gift Box arrived, that just made all of Hickory Farms' admirable qualities even more delicious.
A perfect combination of the classics, the Party Planner Gift Box includes just about everything that a Hickory Farms fan could ask for.
Three varieties of sausage, four types of cheeses, two bags of mixed nuts and two tasty mustards? Is there any wonder that my husband was drooling before I even had the packaging fully removed?
The variety of snacks inside are just right so that there is something for everyone and there is no doubt that my entire family was thrilled to be a part of tasting each of these!
However, had we decided to not keep this for our own tummies, I love that the Party Planner Gift Box is easily suitable for an individual gift or for an office or family to share as the 11 items in this package are as appealing as they are tasty.
As well as making a fabulous gift, I love the idea of this Gift Box (or another of Hickory Farms' delicious items) being a part of a family tradition around the holidays. Bring one to visit with relatives every year and suddenly your family will be part of a delicious tradition that everyone looks forward to!
In fact, as our family currently has a tradition of getting together for a late lunch/early dinner on Christmas Day, this would be the absolutely perfect addition to have out for snacking throughout the afternoon!
What holidays traditions do you enjoy each year? Hickory Farms would love to see them on social media using the hashtag #HickoryTradition so that they can keep up with your family!
If you're looking for a way to surprise a lucky recipient in your life this year, just think of how pleased they'll be when they find that Hickory Farm's Signature Beef Summer Sausage pairs perfectly with their Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese and crackers. Top it all off with the deliciousness of Classical Mixed Nuts and Cranberry Mustard and they'll have a holiday they won't soon forget!
Retailing for $45.99, the Party Planner Gift Box would make a great gift or addition to your holiday traditions. And, thanks to the generosity of Hickory Farms, one person will be able to do just that, because...
One lucky person will win a Party Planner Gift Box from Hickory Farms!
