Five Best Gifts for Her:
1. Black Jack Pecans from Grown Wild Foods
Kathy at Grown Wild Foods cooks up some of the most delectable pecans and jams! Our go-to food item they sell are their Black Jack Pecans. Grown in Georgia, then candied in a mixture of sugar, butter, Tobasco, sour mash, salt, and pepper, these pecans have a sweet and spicy bite to them.
You can literally eat the entire bag by the handfuls, thought they are excellent to add to salads or crusted salmon.
2. Luxe Gift Sets by Lavender Falls Farm
Everything lavender can be found at Lavender Falls Farm. With what started as a whim with Catherine’s husband ordering hundreds of lavender plants has now blossomed into a prosperous adventure that includes hosting guests at her farm, cafe, store, & sharing her new found love of all things lavender with the world.
Each lavender goodie is hand crafted using only natural lavender or lavender essence harvested from the farm in Missouri. Relaxation truly begins on the farm!
Fun fact: Lavender Falls Farm was the FIRST lavender farm in Missouri.
3. Everyday Basics from 27 West
Soft, comfy basics are a staple at 27 West. Every piece seems to effortlessly coordinate with the next. The best part about the clothes at 27 West is that most of them are made in the United States.
This shop is curated and owed by Stephanie, an Army wife. She prides herself in bringing women everyday clothes that are quality made with affordable prices.
4. Natural Soaps with a Purpose from Fire Lake Soapery
Fire Lake Soapery is as concerned about what goes in your body as what goes on it. Their artisan [all-natural] soap company has grown to expand its product offering to all types of good for you products.
The mother daughter team, Julie & Jaclyn, over see every detail from the quality of the ingredients to the hand stamp that can be seen on every bar of soap. What we love most about these two is their commitment to giving back. With each soap purchase, Fire Lake Soapery provides soap locally as well as internationally in Haiti. The simple act of hand washing CAN save lives that’s why they support hand washing clinics in Haiti.
5. Authentic Native American Art by Wasted Time Co.
Hand drawn,authentic Native American art is Wasted Time Co.‘s specialty. These wall hangings filled with buffalo portraits are perfect for photo collages, children’s rooms, man caves, or as a focal piece in bathrooms.

BONUS Gift for Her
6. Chai Tea Maple from Calling Tennessee Home
This chai tea syrup isn’t just for chai tea lovers. With the flavors of Christmas and Thanksgiving wrapped up together in a sweet, thick glaze, this is for anyone who loves the holidays! Best when paired with pork, sweet potatoes, and breakfast items like oatmeal, yogurt, or granola, but it can double as a sweetener for tea & coffee!
Calling Tennessee Home ages all of its gourmet food products stateside and sources 100% of it’s maple from Pennsylvania. [sorry Vermont maple syrup lovers, yours isn’t better] One thing Ella believes in is support Christian ministries with the proceeds of all sales.
