Hickory Farms

For the past 60 years, Hickory Farms has been popular on gift lists everywhere. They have really awesome gift boxes you can send out to your loved ones or for yourself. They have a gift box for everyone — every price range and for the products you want. We recently tried out the Summer Sausage and Cheese Gift Box.

All I can say is yum. I’ve never had smoked cheese before, and it is super good! The presentation of these baskets is great. We actually brought this to Thanksgiving, and it was gone in a heartbeat, so I am not the only one who really liked it! This is definitely a product that I would send out to other family and friends. I was impressed with the quality of the product and how quickly that it was gone at our Thanksgiving get together.

Another great thing is that Hickory Farms is committed to giving back through its partnership with Share Our Strength®, a leading national not-forprofit organization working to end childhood hunger in North America. This holiday season, when customers purchase a Party Planner gift box, Hickory Farms will contribute $5 to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® Campaign*. Customers will also have the opportunity to include a $1 donation to the campaign with their purchase at a Hickory Farms store or at hickoryfarms.com. Hickory Farms’ passion for fighting childhood hunger has generated more than $1.1M in contributions to Share Our Strength since 2008.

Now that you are hungry, you can find Hickory Farms’ award winning sausage, cheese and other specialty items at 750+ Hickory Farms holiday stores, online at hickoryfarms.com, in catalogs, and at leading retailers throughout the holiday season. Here is how their 3 day shipping works:

Hickory Farms makes a great product that is great for your home or as a gift!

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Hickory Farms and received a product sample to facilitate my review.

This giveaway is now over. The winners are Shilo Beedy, Jane, Jackie, Maja Meza, and James Smith. Congrats!

As usual, See’s Candies does not disappoint for the holidays. They have tons of great offerings, and there truly is something for everyone to pick from. My husband loves their white mint truffles. I personally am a fan of the Marshmallow Trees. However, there are gift baskets and gift box sets you can give to others too. There is a sampler pack, gift boxes of chocolate, and even ones that have nuts in them!  You can’t go wrong with anything you get from See’s.  It’s high quality great candies that everyone loves.

Since I love See’s and I know you all love See’s, I’ve got 5 gift cards for See’s Candies that can be used on a pound of candy.  Here’s what you need to do to win one:
