There are so many ways this holiday season to thank a host or a hostess with an edible gift made in Philadelphia and the surrounding region — which means there’s no reason to show up empty-handed to a party. Consider taking along one of these festive local gifts.
Boardroom Spirits makes a vodka flavored with fresh cranberries that’s perfect for crafting merry cocktails. It’s available for $24.99 at the Lansdale distillery and in Pennsylvania Wine & Spirits stores, as well as at Philadelphia’s Christmas Village and in Reading Terminal Market’s Pour Collective.
La Colombe coffee offers a seasonal blend, Northern Lights, a medium roast made from Guatemalan, Brazilian, and Colombian beans with notes of marzipan, cinnamon, and hazelnut. It’s available for $13 online only, where it can also be bought with a mug and fancy chocolate bar for $35.
The Pennsylvania General Store at Reading Terminal Market offers countless locally made sweet and savory snacks, like mini-pretzels covered in chocolate and decorated with swirls of red and green, $13.99 for a bag. Or consider dark peppermint nonpareils for $8.99.
