ECO HOLIDAY GIFTS: IDEAS FOR FOODIES

If you have food lovers in your life, you can never go wrong with gifts to please the palate. There are so many delicious and delectable food offerings that it was difficult to narrow down our selections. But think about their tastes and what they might not buy for themselves but would really enjoy, and so, our top holiday picks.

Bee Raw Honey

4 Wildflower Varietal Honey Flight $48

A taste of nature at its most pure, the Bee Raw Wildflower Varietal Honey Flight. A honey bee will only stray three miles from its hive, so their beekeepers carefully place each hive in the center of a dense wild floral source. Anyone with an adventuresome palate will love tasting and compare raw honey varietals from the desert, mountain, forest and tropical floral sources. Vials hand-corked and sealed with beeswax, then packaged with a beautiful, handcrafted oak block in their signature gift box. Includes 4 of the following wildflower varietals: Maine Raspberry, Colorado Star Thistle, Colorado Sweet Yellow Clover, California Wild Black Sage, New York Basswood

Just wash in cool water. Made of beeswax, organic cotton, organic jojoba oil and tree resin.
