Hickory Farms Perfect Gifts For This Holiday Season

Christmas is in full swing at our house,  the tree is up, shopping is being done, and I am busy checking off my list of people that we have to buy for.  The kids are easy, because toys are usually at the top of their list for Santa to bring.  But I always seem to get stuck when it comes to getting things for the adults in the family.  I always struggle with gift ideas.  What do you buy for people who seem to have everything, who give you very vague ideas as to what they could want, and who tell you they want nothing but you insist on buying something for?

We recently received a wonderful Hickory Farms Gift basket, stuffed with yummy summer sausage, and smoked cheeses and we have already been enjoying its contents.  Hickory Farms, is one of my favorite go to gifts during the holidays.  I have loved Hickory Farms since I very little and remember when my Mom would bring home a gift basket from them, or we would buy some of their famous beef summer sausage and cheeses.  I have fond memories of the strawberry bon bons that they used to place in between all the wonderful tasting food goodies within the basket.  For us, our traditions would often involve a family movie night, and we would slice up the sausage and cheeses, and crab the crackers.

Every year around this time Hickory Farms sets up shop in our local mall and I always love to stop and get a few things for our travels back home.  My parents are always delighted to get Hickory Farms goodies, and the tiny mint meltaways are one of my mom’s favorite treats.

So, when it comes to giving, I like to give Hickory Farms.  There is something for everyone and you cannot go wrong with food.  It is a perfect general gift that can be given to family and friends and something that everyone can enjoy.   Hickory Farms has a wide selection of signature sausages and savory cheeses that are always packaged so pretty.

And, to kick off the holiday gift giving season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 from each Party Planner gift box sold to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign, a national nonprofit that is working to end childhood hunger in America. In addition, Hickory Farms provides free shipping on select products to APO/FPO military addresses across the globe, allowing loved ones overseas to share in holiday traditions.   I love when companies incorporate good causes into the items that they are selling and  Hickory Farms products taste so yummy, that it makes it easy to buy. Right now you can have Hickory Farms delivered right to your door in 3 days for just $3!

So if you are stumped as to what to buy family and friends and you don’t want to give them something they might not like.  Hickory Farms has some tasty gifts for everyone.

Hickory Farms and Holiday Traditions

I have almost always love the holidays, not for the hustle and bustle, but for the memories they create.  We have a huge family on  my Mom’s side and I can remember the huge gatherings at Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I also cannot forget the food that occupied the tables in every corner of my Grandmother’s home.  We are all well fed by the time we left her house.

She always had a spot set up with cheese and crackers and sausage from Hickory Farms and in a tiny dish off to the side those strawberry hard candies that often come in a gift basket from them.  I loved the selection of  summer sausage, and cheeses, and I would always set up a plate as a kid, and stuff a few of the strawberry candies in my pockets.  That wasn’t the last I saw of my favorites because my mom would almost always bring home a Hickory Farms gift basket from the bank where she worked.

Fast forward to today, I still love to stop by the Hickory Farms displays in my local stores and occasionally pick up some of their summer sausage and cheese and set them out for the boys and the family to snack on. Recently, we were sent a wonderful gift basket for our family to try from Hickory Farms in this totally awesome tool bag that will come in handy for my husband to use around the house.  It is a great way to sort of give two gifts at once.  This gift basket came loaded with gouda cheese, mini sausages, crackers, mustard and many other wonderful signature items that Hickory Farms has to offer.  I loved the gouda cheese with the sausage and the boys gobbled it up.  The best way to serve the sausage is cold in my opinion, even though you don’t have too.  Once the packages is open in this house, you won’t have any leftovers.  I cannot think of a better way to add to holiday entertainment or making a classic statement in gift giving.

We loved all of the wonderful things Hickory Farms sent us, and the only thing missing this time around was the strawberry hard candy.  Hickory Farms has been around for as long as I can remember and have always offered a wonderful selection for gifts. It is a perfect gift to give for someone special or when you cannot think of something specific,  Hickory Farms makes gift giving easy.
