I’m so excited to write this post because it’s about two of my favorite things food and gifts! :-) Not only am I excited about these gift ideas, but the companies are all small businesses and supporting small business is one of Jem of the South’s main passions. So let the shopping begin!

So without further ado, here are my top 5 food gifts for Christmas. (in no particular order)

1) Vermont Brownie Company Brownies

I don’t know how these ladies did it, but their brownies are awesome! What I love about them is that their flavor combinations are unique and they are just chocolately goodness! I can’t say it any other way. :-)  If  you order these brownies for anyone this holiday season, I promise you they will love you for life! :-)

2) Sensatiables Jams

I first met the owner of this company at the mini Sugar Coma at Spark and Hustle 2010. I fell in love with her caramelized onion jam instantly! She has 3 unique flavor options that mix sweet and savory.  The company also offers shipping! So you know the drill, get your order on stat! :-)

3) The Cake Crate Company

I’m from the South and if you don’t know, pound cake is a standard in these parts. Cake Crate Company has taken guilt out of eating a pound cake by offering mini pound cakes. How cute is that? They offer mini pound cakes in various flavors and offer shipping as well. So for all of the pound cake lovers in your life that are trying to watch their figures, they can truly have their cake and it too and not feel guilty cause it’s just a little cake. :-)

4) The Coffee Toffee Company

I just discovered this company via Tory Johnson’s Facebook page. Being the chief discoverer of something sweet, I immediately went to their website to find out what these ladies were all about. I ordered a sample and must say it’s some of the best toffee I have ever eaten. If you are a toffee and coffee lover these are a must have for the Christmas season.  And their packaging is way cute! So head on over to their site and get to shopping!

5) Jem of the South’s Signature Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies

Aww, what can I say, Jem of the South is so pleased to now offer our baked goods for order this Christmas.  We are beyond thrilled to take our venture to the next level. So head on over to the store page and check out what we have to offer.

And in the spirit of supporting small businesses please “like” these companies  on Facebook  and follow them on Twitter.  Happy Shopping!

    All of those gifts look luscious. And I can personally attest to Sensatiables Onion Jam. It is addictive.

    Hi Jem of the South!

    I ordered some pecan chocolate chip cookies from you and they almost caused a family riot!! The 2 dozen I ordered were nearly not enough after the first bite was taken. I will definitely be ordering again for Christmas. What wonderful goodies…not too sweet…just perfect!!
    Thanks for much for making me look like the Thanksgiving Goddess with my family for bringing those cookies!
