We have a lot of friends who are from "away," as we call it in Maine. It's always easier for me to order something online and have it shipped right to their house...and, I know it will get there on time. (I have a tendency to avoid the post office like the plague, so things don't always get shipped in time!)
Here are some of my go-to gifts to send to friends and family who we don't get to see during the holidays. These are all "less" personal and good for whole families...it's so hard to send something for everyone!
Who doesn't love a good wreath, especially one from Maine? We always send one to Chad's mother and one to his brother. I may send a few more this year, but I won't spoil any surprises! (PS LLBean always offer free shipping!)
Oprah added these to her list of Favorite Things 2014, and I couldn't agree more. Check out these descriptions: Pretzel salt bagel filled w/cheddar dijon cream cheese (drooling), Brown sugar walnut bagel w/ chocolate chip cream cheese and Italian seasoned bagel filled w/pesto cream cheese. They also have original, everything and french toast flavors. YUM. I send these to people who tend to entertain overnight...there's nothing easier than serving these for breakfast to a crowd!
Cameron gets the Bluum box each month, but we used to get Citrus Lane...both are great, but I just don't like getting two boxes a month! (Well, I do, but my bank account doesn't.) I always send just a one month's subscription to those kiddos in our lives who are super special. I always like receiving these either when I order them or when we get them as gifts because they're usually full of stuff that is really useful, but that I wouldn't necessarily buy myself. For under $30, you can't go wrong sending a box as a gift.
Another Oprah favorite...I haven't sent these to anyone yet, but they look mighty good. I have a very good friend in mind who would LOVE to get a box of cheese on her doorstep (I mean, who wouldnt?!)
I have sent lots of these products to friends and family who used to live in Maine (or who just like beer). They are cute and inexpensive and always well received!
What are some of your favorite gifts to send? I am always looking for new ideas!
