Last Minute Local Gifts

With only a few days left until Christmas, many of us are scrambling to find that perfect last minute gift or something special to bring to a holiday party. Out of time and ideas? Consider adding a touch of uniqueness to your procrastination present this year and give something local like a classy bottle of Idaho wine from 3 Horse Ranch, Bitner, Cold Springs, Colter’s Creek, Crossings, Huston, Indian Creek, Sawtooth, Snake River or Ste. Chapelle! Pair the wine with an artisan cheese from Ballard Family Dairy, Eden Creamery or Wood’n Goat Garden and add a spicy Idaho mustard, sweet honey or jam to make it a unique gift basket or hostess gift. Too busy for basket building? Vogel Farms Country Market has All Idaho Gift Packs and Baskets and Homemade by Dorothy has Bounty of Idaho Foods Gift Basket wrapped and ready! From sweet to savory – they have something for everyone on your list.

The hardest person to buy for is the person who has it all – so why no treat them to a night out on the town at a local restaurant! Grab a gift certificate at some of our Idaho eateries all over the state that do a fantastic job of sourcing local, seasonal ingredients. Check out this year’s Restaurant of the Month features for some ideas! Or find a complete list of all the Idaho Preferred restaurants here.
