Searching for a unique gift for a loved one, friend or co-workers? Vermont Weddings has you covered with an all Vermont gift guide!
"We are fortunate that there are so many incredible high-quality products by Vermont makers," says Tracy Stolese, owner of Shelburne Gift Company. "I think it's extra-special to share something that comes from our home state. When you do, you're supporting small, local businesses and artisans, as well."
While there are countless makers and businesses we could feature, we've rounded up a few of our favorites to showcase Vermont's best.
For the lovebirds
Treat the newlyweds, new parents or empty nesters in your life to an overnight away. There's something for everyone in Vermont, from family-friendly resorts to cozy cabins perfect for relaxing by a fire.
For the beer lover
Nothing says hoppy holidays like 4-pack and an IUO for a trip to Lawson's Finest Liquids taproom (Waitsfield).
For the foodies
Vermont is practically synonymous with good food and drink. These gifts showcase the tastes of the state!
NU Chocolat (Burlington) creates European-style chocolates (pictured below) that are handmade by master chocolatiers. Everything is crafted with the finest and highest quality chocolate.
Runamok Maple (Fairfax) produces infused, smoked and barrel-aged maple syrup that take the iconic flavor to new heights.
Looking for a treat that is also healthy? Check out Battenkill Brittle (Arlington), made with organic sesame, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, pecan meal, pure VT maple syrup and organic brown rice syrup. It's a perfect snack to gift your outdoorsy friends.
Need to accommodate allergies without sacrificing flavor? Vermont Nut Free Chocolates (Grand Isle) create small batch nut-free chocolates.
For the home baker Vermont Rolling Pins are heirloom-quality rolling pins that are both useful and beautiful.
If you're looking for that special gift (or gifts) but feeling pressed for ideas or time, allow Shelburne Gift Company to give you the gift of time back! They specialize in designing and delivering curated gift boxes and offer a variety of themed boxes pre-built on their website such as Winter Warm Up, Welcome Baby and Wine and Dine.
"Everyone is so crazy busy during the holidays with events, decorating, shopping, cooking, extra work responsibilities, kids' activities and more," says Tracy. "Shelburne Gift Company can help simplify the holidays by taking over all of the legwork when it comes to corporate or group gift giving."
