Gift Giving Made Effortless at Rafter Eleven

By Brooke Wasowicz

The year is winding down, but not before major holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah and the New Year, which typically entail some sort of gifting, whether  it’s a present wrapped up under the tree or a gift basket for the host who opened their home to you on a chilly winter’s night. At Rafter Eleven we believe gift giving should come from the heart and bring people together, which is why our customized gift baskets make the ideal holiday gift for just about anyone on your list.

Holiday shopping doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive. Simply choose a hand-painted basket (coming in a range of sizes) and describe the type of person you’re shopping for. Do they love to cook? Do they love drinking wine? Do they have a major sweet tooth or are they on the savory side? Sip on a glass of wine or a hot cup of coffee while we do the shopping and wrapping for you! At Rafter Eleven we have something thoughtful for everyone.

Give the gift of Taste. We can fill a basket of your choice with flavorful olive oil and balsamic vinegar pairings like our Tuscan Herb Olive Oil and Traditional 18-Year Aged Balsamic Vinegar for the savory people in your life or a White Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar and Persian Lime Olive Oil for those who prefer something on the sweeter side. Add a spice or two like the Lemon-infused salt and finish with a creamy aoili (we can’t get enough of the Smoky Barbecue!). With a wide range of olive oils, balsamic vinegars, jams, spices, and aoilis we can put together a basket catered to the needs of every self-proclaimed chef in your life.

Give the gift of Liquid Cheer. We love wine at Rafter Eleven and we love helping you spread holiday cheer one glass at a time. Come in for a wine tasting to try varietals from all over the world like Portugal, New Zealand, and Spain. Find a wine (or three) that you love and we will wrap it up with a bow for the perfect hostess gift.

Give the gift of Indulgence. If ever there is a time to indulge it’s during the holidays when you’re around friends and family you love. For those who love the sweet and decadent we have chocolate liqueur sauces that are the perfect topping for homemade ice cream, freshly cut fruit or even in hot coffee and coco. With flavors ranging from Chocolate Amaretto to Espresso Port it’s hard to choose just one!

Whether you’re shopping for the cooking maestros, baking experts and sugar seekers in your life or the coffee connoisseurs, tea sippers and wine drinkers you surround yourself with, we can create the perfect gift basket for you. Give a gift that shows you care. Let Rafter Eleven help you give the gift of thoughtfulness this year.
