This holiday season here are some creative gift ideas from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas and McCrea’s Candies. The two company’s flavors pair perfectly together, creating an outstanding, original present that will stand out from the crowd! Some ideas include:

  • Hostess Gift – For the hostess who has it all, these luxurious products are the perfect, scrumptious way to say thank you.
  • Infused Holiday Drinks – Make a homemade, infused Salted Caramel & Coffee Vodka for a unique signature drink that’ll be the hit of the holiday party.
  • Caramel + Sugar + Herb – Create a sweet and savory gift for the foodie by pairing the products with a planted herb—it’s a beautiful and useful present that’s sure to delight!

I received the following:
· McCrea’s Black Lava Sea Salt Caramels (5.5 oz tube, $14.95) — Rich, creamy caramel with crystals of Hawaiian black sea salt. A moment in paradise.
· McCrea’s Classic Vanilla Caramels (5.5 oz tube, $14.95) — McCrea’s original caramel generously infused with sweet, aromatic vanilla. For the purist
· Nielsen- Massey’s Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar (7.5 oz jar, $23) — A flavorful blend of gourmet baker’s sugar and the pinnacle of all vanillas, Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract. Use it in any recipe where vanilla and the sweetness of sugar are desired.
· Nielsen-Massey’s Pure Coffee Extract (2 oz bottle, $9) — The rich, freshly brewed flavor is achieved through our careful distillation of premium coffee beans. This concentrated extract is easy to keep on hand, unlike ground coffee or beans, which rapidly lose their flavor.

I love all these items! My favorite is the McCrea’s Classic Vanilla Caramels and the Nielsen-Massey’s Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar! These items have been a real hit in our house this holiday season!
