Calef’s Gift Guide & Recommendations

Our most popular New England made gifts for the holidays

Cheese is always great for the holidays. Rat Trap is perfect if you don’t know the person’s cheese preferences or sharpness tolerance. Calef’s Pickles in a Bucket are a fun, yet practical, gift. Pickles can make a fun white elephant gift or yankee swap gift. They also ship nicely. Calef’s Hot Cocoa Mix can be given to anyone! Some of our favorite ways to gift this is as part of a teacher or coworker gift. We also love cocoa as a stocking stuffer. Camp mixes are another great stocking stuffer or add on to a cooking (or camping!) themed gift. Lastly, Calef’s Jams and Jellies are always a favorite. It’s a gift you can’t go wrong with and we have proven that year after year! So get shopping and thanks for letting us be part of your holiday celebration.
