Family Christmas Shopping

December 20, 2010

This year, I will be going to my girlfriend’s family’s house for Christmas. Her sister lives in Philadelphia and we are all going there.  I have been trying to figure out what to get her sister and brother-in-law for Christmas and I figure what better than to bring the Finger Lakes to Philadelphia?

F. Olivers Olive Oil

I am thinking about going to Naked Dove Brewery and getting a growler of their new beer for her brother-in-law; then some olive oils and vinegars from F. Oliver’s on Main Street in Canandaigua; and possibly taking a trip to Artizanns in Naples to buy some locally made gifts.  Those really embody the spirit of the Finger Lakes. Maybe I’ll also make a stop at the Wizard of Clay for some nice dishware for the kitchen. Actually, we could even use it later in the day on Christmas when we eat dinner.  I was also thinking of Inspire Moore Winery, which has a wine called “Joy” –  perfect for the holiday season.  What more could you want than to inspire Joy during the Christmas holidays?  With my shopping complete, I will head to Sweet Expressions and have Denise put it all into a nice gift basket, along with some locally made chocolates, and present that to the family at Christmas.

Another great idea is to buy local products and bunch them as a breakfast.

Bringing the Finger Lakes to Philly

Grab some buckwheat pancake mix, maple syrup, Hartmann’s sausage, Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters coffee and literally create a breakfast.  Add some Healthy Purple grape juice and that completes another great gift from the Finger Lakes.
