Monogramed Tote Bags
In our opinion monogramed tote bags are a perfect hostess gift because they are a necessity all year round. Click the link to see our wide selection on insulated lunch cooler tote bags, waxed canvas bags, and canvas boat bags as well. The insulated cooler is the best when it comes to traveling with platers of food or carrying drinks. This olive waxed canvas bag is paired with khaki trim and a top zip closure. It is so unique and sophisticated looking which is why it is one of our best sellers. It’s smartly crafted inner details include a very large hanging zip pocket equipped with a open phone and wallet pocket for added organization. Includes a nice outer pocket for easy access to smaller items like cell phone. They come in a variety of colors and so does the printed monogram. It is the perfect balance of a thoughtful and practical gift.
Spreading Christmas Cheer(s)
Our personalized shatterproof cups are a staple for us and our customers because they are the best for a party! We can print any logo, monogram, or custom artwork to add the finishing touch to any party. The best part about these shatterproof cups is that they are reusable, and dishwasher approved so you can always have them.
Customized Cutting Board
Saving the best for last because our wooden cutting boards have the opportunity to be the most thoughtful gift. Not only are they sustainable but they can be styled any way you like. Our favorite part about this is that we can engrave any personal note or handwritten recipe on the top of our boards. It can even be in the person’s handwriting. Don’t know about you but if someone gave that to us, we would cherish it forever.
Christmas Desserts and Cocktails
Peanut Butter Snowballs
The writer, Wanda Regula, says “this recipe for peanut butter ball cookies is a nice change from the typical milk chocolate and peanut butter combination. I once prepared them for a bake sale at my granddaughter’s school, and I’ve also put them in gift boxes to share with neighbors at Christmas”. And in our opinion, these would be the perfect if you are on dessert duty for a Christmas party!
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 pound white candy coating, coarsely chopped
- Chopped peanuts, optional
Directions: In a bowl, combine the sugar, peanut butter, and butter. Chill in freezer for 30 minutes or until the mixture is easy to handle. Shape into 1-in. balls and place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes or until firm. Meanwhile, melt the candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl. Dip each ball and place on waxed paper to harden. If desired, sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
This cranberry and orange-infused sangria is just what your holiday party needs. Sangria is the perfect make-ahead cocktail to serve a crowd. The fruit-filled wine punch can be made with red or white varietals (or rosé!) and can be endlessly customized with your favorite combinations of fruits. But starting with a tried-and-true recipe, especially when new to the sangria game, is always a good idea. This wintery version calls for cranberries, apples, and oranges as well as orange liqueur and Campari. It’s festive, cheery, and 100% foolproof. Add everything to a pitcher then let it chill—really, that’s all there is to it!
- 2 750-ml bottles of dry red wine
- 1 c. cranberries (thawed if frozen)
- 1 c. orange liqueur (such as Cointreau)
- 1/2 c. Campari or Aperol
- 2 oranges, thinly sliced and quartered
- 2 apples, cut into 1-inch pieces
Directions: Combine the wine, cranberries, orange liqueur, Campari or Aperol, oranges and apples in a large pitcher or punch bowl. Refrigerate the sangria for 2 to 6 hours before serving.
