Calef’s Gift Guide & Recommendations


Cheese is always great for the holidays. Rat Trap is perfect if you don’t know the person’s cheese preferences or sharpness tolerance. It’s our most famous and best selling hand packed creamy cheddar. We also love Calef’s Flavored Cheddar Cheese for entertaining. Flavored cheeses are perfect additions to a holiday cheese plate. Try a couple different flavors, each sold by the lb.

Calef’s Pickles in a Bucket

Calef’s Pickles in a Bucket are a unique New England Gift. Our pickles are almost as famous as our cheese and have a huge following. This fun gift makes a great yankee swap gift. They ship nice and come in dill or sour flavors.

Gourmet Foods

Calef’s Hot Cocoa Mix  are one of our most versatile gifts. With options available at the store and online be sure to stock up on hot cocoa and gourmet beverage mixes. These can be paired with our Calef’s Coffee Mug or part of a food themed gift basket. Calef’s Hot Cocoa Mix make great stocking stuffers. The store has an assortment of fun flavors that will be sure to add some smiles to your holiday gifting.

Camp mixes are another great stocking stuffer or add on to a cooking (or camping!) themed gift. Calef’s Jams and Jellies are always a favorite. Jams and Jellies make great, practical gifts. Perfect for teachers, coworkers, and gifts for the host.

You can’t go wrong with gourmet foods and speciality treats from Calef’s. For years we have been an essential stop!
