Holiday Shopping Guide: Herbs and Spices and Everything Nice

herbs and spicesWith the holidays quickly approaching, you’re probably currently working through your holiday shopping list and checking it twice. In this case, we recommend herbs and spices and everything nice for your loved ones this year. When it comes to the most special people in your life, there’s nothing more satisfying than giving the perfect gift—something useful, fun, and a little unexpected. That’s exactly what we’ve got for you here at Old Town Spice Shop, your favorite local spice shop.

Here is a holiday gift guide with fun gift suggestions created for those dearest to you, who are often the hardest to shop for—Mom and Dad, or your mom and dad equivalent. It seems like they already have just about everything they need, and when asked what they want, you can’t seem to nail down a decisive answer. Well, wonder no more.


When it comes to holiday shopping for Mom, a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year is of the utmost importance. After all, she’s quite down to earth and likely already has a plethora of old holiday gifts that are just taking up space and attracting dust at this point in time. There’s nothing Mom will love more than being fully stocked with all the necessary cooking and baking essentials she’ll need for whipping up all of the culinary delights that her heart desires throughout the New Year. Consider gifting her fresh, quality extracts and sugars, herbs and spices, and blends and seasonings. We also carry a lovely array of teas, from fruit tea to chai to oolong, and our favorite, Winter Blend Tea. She’ll be set and ready to rock it in the kitchen in 2019, thanks to you…*insert big, wet, appreciative kiss.


We get it. It’s a fact. Holiday shopping for Dad can be a challenge. If you’re struggling with holiday gift ideas for dear old Dad, have no fear; we’ve got it covered. Here’s a few for starters: grilling spices (you might want to check out our Grill Master Gift Box, which comes complete with an array of tasty dry rubs and marinades); our line of Brewhouse Sauces, including our unique hot sauce, mustard, BBQ sauces or NoCo Beer Jelly; and you may also want to check out our lineup of spicy peppers and chilis to help spice up his holidays, or one of our tasty smoked salts!

These are just a few culinary-themed ideas to grease your wheels and give you a bit of inspiration.
