Happy Friday! What better way to celebrate the weekend arriving then another giveaway! Today, we’re partnering with one of my favorite companies, The Fresh Market. I’ve shared a couple posts with them in the past including a Christmas Brunch and an Italian dinner for two. The Fresh Market is by far my favorite place to shop for food. Lucky for me, The Fresh Market is walking distance from our home. In the warmer months, we walk at least once a week to pick up some items. The place to go for fresh, high quality, and delicious food. 

Today, I wanted to highlight how convenient The Fresh Market really is and some of the amazing items they have. Therefore, I am sharing three pairings to give as hostess gifts or to the baker in your life. Using all The Fresh Market ingredients and pairing each cookie or bread with a delicious beverage from the store. 

The winner of Day One: Origami Owl and Day Two: Greetabl have been announced. Click here for Day One and here Day Two, scroll down to the bottom of the posts to find out if you’re a winner! Also, don’t forget to enter Day ThreeDay Four, and Day Five before those giveaways end!

The holiday season is busy, we can all agree to that right?! Time flies by, there’s a million parties to attend, shopping to be done, and we don’t always have time to pick something up last minute when a new party pops up on the calendar. Therefore, planning ahead a bit and creating a couple of gifts that are perfect for everyone, is a MUST! One, they’ll save you when you realize you have to be at someone’s house in a couple hours and have no time to stop at the mall. Two, these homemade gifts are a little extra special and very tasty! Three, they’re super easy and also easy on the budget {total win}!

To get started, I found a couple of recipes on Pinterest I wanted to try out. Including Cranberry Winter Cookies, Toffee Pecan Cookies, and Cranberry Pumpkin Bread. After deciding on those three recipes, I headed to The Fresh Market to pick up all of the ingredients. Plus beverages to perfectly pair with the cookies + bread. Also, there was a stop at Michael’s as well for the mason jars, basket, wooden gift tags, kraft paper filler, and ribbon.

With all the ingredients and packaging, all that was left to do was put the cookie + bread mix together and decorate. I then added them to the basket and included the beverage I picked out for each. La Marca Prosecco with the Toffee Pecan Cookies, Cold Brew Coffee with the Cranberry Pumpkin Bread, and Hot Chocolate Mix with the Cranberry Winter Cookies. 

Now I have three sets of gifts for all the holiday parties we have right around the corner! Honestly, I’m super excited about them and can’t wait to gift to family + friends. And now, it’s your turn to get your shopping on at The Fresh Market. Today, I am giving away a $75 gift card to the store. Sarah and Morgan are too, so make sure you go enter on their sites too. Enter below and good luck y’all!
