Yikes! You only have 7 shopping days left and you are stuck on what to buy that person who seems to have everything. Don’t panic!
If putting together a gift basket isn’t your style (Santa Claus is Coming to Town), you can still give the gift of sustainable food. Johnson’s Backyard Garden is offering gift certificates for vegetable pickups. A four pickup certificate is $128 and a 10 pickup option is $300.
If you are looking for lower dollar options, Greenling also offers locally-sourced gift baskets (pre-made so you only have to choose) and gift certificates toward home delivery service.
Another idea is a gift certificate to a local eatery that sources locally. Edible Austin has a list of restaurants working with local farms, purveyors and food artisans. There is nothing like giving a gift of a fabulous food experience to your favorite foodie.
And, if your favorite foodie prefers to be more hands on, I highly recommend buying them a cooking class at Thai Fresh. I already love the food at Thai Fresh and have heard great things about Jam Santichat’s classes. I can’t wait to take a class in the New Year with a gift certificate I received.
Ok, now stop procrastinating. Get out there and buy your local, sustainable holiday gifts!
