2. Nut Pop Pickle Co.

You may have stumbled upon my friend Cinnamon’s delicious pickled veggies at East End Market! If you haven’t tried them yet, you are missing out! I purchased two jars for my dad last year and he always asks me when he is going to get more (HINT: Probably this Christmas)!

Nut Pop offers a variety of delicious pickled veggies from Cucumbers, Green Beans, Cauliflower, & Carrots! I honestly can’t pick a favorite because they are all delicious! To place your order check out NutPop’s website (


3. Deli Fresh Threads

Who doesn’t love a great sandwich?! My dear friend Biggie created DeliFreshThreads for sandwich lovers everywhere. His clever designs & fun style shines through in each of his T’s and every order is hand wrapped and “made to order”  special for the lucky recipient! All hail the King of Meals!

PS-Biggie has monthly Sandwich Eatups at a local sandwich shop! Make sure you follow his social networks for a heads up on where we’ll be headed to next! These are always SO much fun & truly a great group of people…PLUS we get to eat delicious sandwiches and you can’t beat that! 😉

4. 4 Rivers 

Of course one of the most iconic local BBQ shops has ridiculously unique gifts! Take the Brisket Candle for example.This scented soy based candle is actually made with brisket grease!…you may just have to pull your spouse away from trying to take a bite!


FYI, I also got special word that they just released their house made Maple Bourbon Syrup in their store this week!! You heard it here first! 😉

5. Project Pop

How many people do you know that LOVE kettle corn? My sister is addicted, but unfortunately (until now) there wasn’t anywhere to purchase organic freshly popped, delicious kettle popcorn! Introducing Project Pop!

My friend Major, a Winter Park local, created Project Pop with the goal of offering health conscious popcorn with delicious organic ingredients!  The non-GMO kernels are popped  in a small kettle by hand using organic virgin coconut oil. Project Pop keeps it real with simple, vegan ingredients, and to top it off- no preservatives included!

This is going to be the perfect stocking stuffer for my sis this year, and I know your friends & family will love it too!

Popcorn Bags are only $6 & can be ordered by emailing Major at Also, be sure to check out her Instagram as well for flavors and additional info @eatprojectpop
