Who wouldn’t want healthy, wild-caught seafood delivered to their door for Christmas?
Our family has made it a tradition to have a seafood Christmas dinner every year and I anticipate it every year! It is a special treat that we rarely have.
As one that loves seafood but rarely has the opportunity to enjoy it, I would be delighted with a seafood gift. If you know someone that is the same, be it a one-time meal or a collection of canned fish, wild-caught seafood from Vital Choice is sure to be a hit.
Everyone knows someone that needs healthy snacks! Gone are the days of candy bars and soda, in comes something better.
Having multiple food sensitivites, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the food supply in our home. The idea of having someone send me snacks on a regular basis that I can safely eat is a relief.
If you have young children at home and can’t seem to find time to make them the healthy snacks you long for them to have, order an Urthbox and have it delivered to your door.
Don’t forget the college kids! Being away from home, it is sometimes hard to find the motivation to eat healthy when the cafeteria is right around the corner and easy-to-reach snacks are down the hall. Buy your college student an Urthbox and have it sent straight to them!
Last but not least, let us not forget those that simply cannot get to the store by themselves; the elderly shut-ins and the disabled. They too need healthy food to sustain them and with the difficulty of getting out this is the perfect solution for them to have healthy food to munch on.

Do you know someone that has an interest in growing their own greens but has no idea where to start?
Look no further!
These easy to use kits are every aspiring gardener’s best friend. They come with everything one would need to start an indoor growing hobby and add healthful greens to their diet.
Let’s not forget the kids either! One of the earliest memories I have in elementary school is when we sprouted an avocado seed. I thought that was the coolest thing! (And am still amazed how little sprouts sprout). Kids love to participate in the family and love seeing things grow and this is easy and kid-friendly with a little assistance.

Wine and Chocolate
Two items that always make an appreciated gift, but pairing wine and chocolate together can be somewhat of art. If you are a novice I would, if you cannot attend a tasting, follow advise as to the best pairings. I found the following recommendations on WikiHow:
White chocolate: Match with Sherry, Muscat, a fruity Chardonnay, or a Moscato d’Asti. These wines will pick up on the buttery, fatty tones of what isn’t always considered to be a “real” chocolate. For those who don’t mind
a risk, a contrasting wine heavy in tannins might just work to cut through the fattiness of white chocolate.
Milk chocolate: Try Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Muscat, and dessert wines. Champagne is also a natural match for milk chocolate. The crisp, dry flavour of the bubbly contrasts perfectly with the creaminess of a simple milk chocolate tablet. Be careful of the higher sugar levels in milk chocolate, as these may cancel out any fruitiness in dry red wines, leaving them tasting bitter.
Dark chocolate (50% to 70%): Pair this with more robust wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, and Port. A Chianti can match well with chocolate around 65 percent cocoa content.
Bittersweet chocolate (70% to 100%): This chocolate type enters the bitter range with deep intensity. Chocolate gourmands adore this range of taste, so the wine should live up to it. Good choices include Bordeaux, Beaujolais, Shiraz, Orange Muscat, Port, Malbec, and Zinfandel.
Try champagne or sparkling wine with all chocolate types. It is a variety that compliments many flavors. Many fortified dessert wines work well across the chocolate spectrum as well.
