HL Holiday Gift Guide

So many loved ones, so many gifts, so little time!! Does holiday shopping have you hemming and hawing instead of Ho-Ho-Ho-ing? Fret not. We’ve decked our halls with a huge variety of items to suit everyone on your list. Need something for the coffee enthusiast in your life? How about that maple-slingin’ pancake lover or the dazzling cocktail connoisseur? Everyone falls into at least one of these three categories—right? Let our Holiday Gift Guide put some pep-permint back in your step. Plus, when you shop at Healthy Living you get to check off two lists: gifts and groceries — just sayin’. Happy GIFTING, everyone!

The Coffee Lover

Mmm, coffee. The smell—even just the thought of it can lift the spirits. When that coffee lover opens their bag of locally roasted beans or marvels at their curvy new Chemex, they’ll perk up like a Pavlovian pup.






What to buy: Chemex (don’t forget the filters!), coffee mugs from our Housewares Department, locally roasted coffee from Brio or Abracadabra at our Vermont store, or Capital City Roasters from our New York store.

The Maple Lover

Did you know it takes 40 gallons of maple sap to create one gallon of syrup? Yeah, mind explosion. The stuff is literally GOLD in liquid form. So skip the jewelry and give ‘em a New England breakfast-themed gift that will feed them royally.


What to buy: Essential HL Organic Vermont Maple Syrup, local pancake mix – traditional from Rogers Farmstead or gluten-free from King Arthur Flour, a Mason Cash mixing bowl plus a colorful whisk from our Housewares Department.

The Cocktail Lover

Is there a real-life Don Drapper, Joan Holloway, or some other dashing cocktail-slingin’ savant you are dying to impress? Instead of the go-to gin and kitschy swizzle sticks, make a real splash with something better. Give them something bitter.






What to buy: Bitters: go classic with Angostora or a bit more adventurous with a Hella Bitters gift set, Bittermilk for classic cocktails in a cinch, Powell and Mahoney mixers, Alice and the Magician edible fragrance.
