Get ready for part two of our Vermont Mom favorite Vermont gifts of 2021! We’ve got a fantastic series coming your way. And this one is no exception- Vermont Mom’s favorite Vermont gifts for guys has got you covered.
This collection of gifts are perfectly curated for the Vermonter who is the proverbial, “I have everything I need” kind of guy. Psst.. just cause he says it doesn’t mean you have to listen.
Let’s start with a gift never before seen in stores- sure not to be in his closet- our fun new designs directly from Vermont Mom.
We’ve got so perfect many choices. Surprise him with something from our collection of “I’m from VT” new classics. Raising a family in Vermont brings with it the colloquial Vermont native truisms. We’ve picked a few of our favorites just in time for the holiday season.
Our 2021 Favorites has a theme: collections. 2021 has been hard enough, let’s make gift-giving as easy and thoughtful as possible. Oh- and local too!
Cheers and Let’s Eat!
As Vermonters, we are spoiled by endless choices of unparalleled local food and drink. Vermont Mom has painstakingly taste-tested the best of the best from all over our Brave Little State. Yes, we’re full and tired!
For our starter, we have cultivated the most luxurious adult peanut butter and jelly. Our choice of bread has the perfect texture and won’t fall apart after the first bite. Great Harvest makes their Farmer’s White daily. Delicious, local, and all-natural, yum! As for the peanut butter, well we have diverted just a bit and have gone with Nutty Vermonter’s maple, cinnamon 3-nut butter made with almonds, cashews, and pecans. We know, we know, the purists will revolt- but trust us on this one. It is delicious! And, isn’t it time for something different!
Now for the jam. Sweet but not too sweet and can hold up to the flavors of hearty bread and one-of-a-kind nut butter. The winner is Halifax Hollow’s wild grape jelly. This jelly offers the traditional fresh grape flavor with Vermont artisan refinement.
Wash it all down with a Vermont Mom coffee pick, Carrier’s Deep Thought full-bodied coffee.
And there is nothing like the perfect mug. We’ve chosen the Rustic Straight-sided Stoneware Mug from Uphill Pottery VT. This is the mug that everyone will know is your mug. Hands off!
Have an entertainer to buy for? Or maybe someone who loves a tasty plate of cheese and crackers?
Well, this is sure to be a personal collection he’ll dig right into! Agricola’s pork salame has a wonderfully smooth layer of flavors.
Pair it with Castleton’s salted maple crackers, adding the perfect bit of sweetness to stand up to Plymouth Artisan Cheddar’s Hunter Cheese.
Serve this selection with a choice of ale from Fiddlehead’s holiday release and you’ll have a gift they love full of first-time tastes! Perfect for any holiday celebration!
Baby, it’s cold outside. What better way to finish a cold day in Vermont than with a cozy bourbon in a nice heavy glass. Black Flannel has developed a bourbon with a long-lasting warm flavor that will surely add some warmth to the end of your day. Don’t make him get up for a glass – include the perfect lowball glass etched with the state of Vermont– stop by Home and Garden Vermont to grab one while they last!
Keep Him Cozy
Gifts that keep him warm, and ready for whatever Vermont has to offer are a priority during our cold winter months. Ski the East has the perfect base layer for all things outdoors- their elevated base layer is a gift that keeps on giving.
Finish it off by warming his toes with Darn Tough’s Hiker Sock. These socks are long-lasting- they’re guaranteed for life- and they’re most comfortable around!
Perhaps a fire is in order? Finding dry wood for an outdoor fire in the winter is no fun! Grab a case of FireFire fire starters. FireFire is a Richmond-based company that has figured out the key to no-fuss fire starting. Love them!
He Didn’t Know He Needed It
This collection contains the gifts that he’ll be thanking you for for weeks after opening! First, Vermont Mom’s I’m a 5 twist kinda VT dad t-shirt.
Add to that a belt. A belt? Yes. But this is a forever belt. Crafted right here in Vermont with style and durability that will stand the test of time- and any outdoor Vermont adventure.
Lastly, our surprise gift. These are the gifts they don’t see coming. Chris Mazzarella’s graphically illustrated photography is Vermont personified. We recommend the 2022 calendar. Printed with frameable images in mind. Pick from 12 to showcase and enjoy for the entire year.
