Are you looking for some fun and different ideas for holiday gifts? Then you are at the right place, and Little Giant Beekeepers has sourced some fun honey gifts for the holidays. Really, who doesn’t love honey?
This is a fun honey gift from Trader Joes; not only does it taste delicious, but it is also beautiful. This honey gift sampler was a white elephant hit at our The Little Giant Beekeepers holiday party last year. Gift six different flavors of honey in this sampler, including clover, sunflower, orange blossom, eucalyptus, macadamia, and mimosa honey. Each one comes in a cute glass bottle with a cork stopper. The different flavors make a fun taste test during holiday gatherings. You could even make a game of it when you get bored of spending all your time with your family! This honey also makes a great hostess gift. If you are lucky enough to live by a Trader Joe’s, grab them quick before they are gone. They always fly off the shelves fast.
Here is some fun honey with a little kick to it…wildflower honey mixed with habanero peppers -whoa wee! This wildflower honey is infused with a mix of chili peppers for a subtly hot kick. In Texas, we love our dips. And what better to add a little kick to a dip than with the habanero pepper honey. Simply pour over cream cheese and use it as an artisanal upgrade to the usual pepper jelly. Having last-minute guests over? Make a beautiful cheese or charcuterie board and instead of regular honey, use some with a little attitude. It also makes an excellent marinade for chicken and beef. Don’t forget it is vegetarian, gluten-free and paleo-friendly too! This honey would also make a fabulous hostess gift, wrapped in a cute bee tea towel.
