Cookies for the young at heart
As a gift designer, I’ve eaten far too many of these Pistachio Cherry Sablé Cookies by Lark Fine Foods—tender, French shortbread cookies handmade in small batches and without preservatives. The unique combination of flavors is satisfying and tailored to adult taste.
Cookies are an inexpensive, sociable treat and popular during the season. Therefore, select artisan flavors in attractive packaging to stand out from the crowd.
Fresh picks for the pantry
Ask any cook and they’ll tell you fresh herbs are the secret ingredient to making a great dish. But, did you know fresh herbs can also be used in DIY skincare products and herbal tea blends?
I love to use fresh herbs year-round, which is why the garden in a bag is an ingenious solution.

For the Chocolate lover
The Dark Roasted Mocha Caramels are beautifully packaged. And, at about $5 each they make sweet realtor pop-by gifts.
Made in the USA, the caramels are handcrafted and slow cooked. So, unlike other caramels, these luxurious pieces of goodness melt in your mouth without sticking to your teeth.
If brunch is their jam
Bonnie’s artisan jams are made in small batches with real fruit. And with the charming packaging, recipients will be proud to set this on the brunch table.
Check out the Peach Ginger Jam.
It has a tangy blend of ginger and sweet peaches. And the best part? It perfectly pairs with your favorite gourmet cheese. Also, it can be used as a glaze while cooking making it a highly versatile gift.
Quick Tip: Remember, you can always break apart gift sets and hand out the gifts individually. It’s a great way to keep the price point down.

I love the MarieBelle Aztec Hot Chocolate. It’s a thick and decadent South American single-origin drinking chocolate. Made with 65% pure chocolate it’s sinfully delicious and delightfully packaged in a gorgeous tin.
Cookie Exchange Party
I know, I know. Cookies again.
But, hear me out. These are cookie ingredients in a mason jar to bake at home.
Scent is a powerful memory trigger.
So, every time the wonderful aroma of fresh baked cookies wafts in the air, your client will think of you.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Mix: Just add eggs and butter and bake. The easiest way to make homemade oatmeal raisin cookies at home.
A touch of hygge
The holiday season is the perfect time to get cozy. And there’s nothing cozier than a clean burning candle with a soothing scent.
The Fig & Vine hand poured candle by Tule Fog is one of my favorites. It invokes the exquisite complexity of a chardonnay, featuring notes of butter, oak, fig, floral, and a hint of spice.
Permission to Relax
We all know the holidays can be a stressful time of year. So, items that encourage self care and pampering are thoughtful realtor pop-by gifts. These next two ideas are small batch, individually packaged spa treatments.
Eucalyptus & Peppermint Foot Soak: This peppermint and eucalyptus effervescent foot soak is the perfect way to pamper tired feet at the end of a long day.
Charcoal Exfoliating Mask: With activated charcoal, sea clay, and rice bran powder, this face mask gently exfoliates, leaving your skin looking and feeling healthier.
However, if you’re feeling adventurous, consider making your own DIY Scrub. It’s an easy way to incorporate your brand into the packaging.
It wouldn’t be movie night without popcorn.
Above all, keep your message simple and seasonal and do remember to include your contact information.
