For the foodie on your list, All the Cellar’s Best is a perfect gift. For the traditionalist, stick to the tried and true, Summer Sausage and Cheese.

Kelly's Holiday Tips

Hosting a party? Serving a mix of sweet and savory is a big hit. Treat your guests to some Snowflake Pretzels or the Sweet and Salty Nut Sampler and you’ll be the talk of the town.
For a less traditional centerpiece, use seasonal fruit or decorative pinecones.
Buy a bunch of mini stockings and use them to put your utensils in for your holiday table.

For business gifting, it’s important to take into consideration the size of the audience and to choose gifts that are perfect for sharing. Some of these gifts include the Deluxe Smokehouse Collection and Home for the Holidays.
Show sincere appreciation and stay within your budget by taking advantage of the volume discounts.
Say ‘thank you’ or applaud a job well done with Hickory Holiday Celebration and the Summer Sausage and Cheese Gift Box. To really make a statement personalize your gifts with a custom ribbon or tag.
