Still looking for a last-minute Brooklyn-made gift? The Give Brooklyn Box from Early Bird Granola gives two gifts in one.
The box (actually a repurposed burlap bag from Stone St. Coffee Co) includes sweet and savory treats from a lineup of BK makers, including McClure’s Bloody Mary Mix, Early Bird Granola, Salvatore Brooklyn olive oil, a jar of Maiden Preserves, Fine and Raw chocolate, and Liddabit sea salt caramels. (Start with the bloody mary mix and work your way through to the caramels and you’ll have a pretty ideal menu for a lazy holiday afternoon.)
Of course, gift baskets seem to be ubiquitous this season – good luck finding a shop that’s doesn’t offer their own variety. What sets the Give Brooklyn box apart is that Twenty percent of the profits from the Give Brooklyn Box will go to food charities Food First in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and People’s Kitchen NYC. So not only will you be supporting Brooklyn food talent (and the good people they source from), you’ll also be helping to feed the neediest New Yorkers this winter. If that’s not a reason to fill up on granola and bloody mary mix, we don’t know what is.
Give Brooklyn Box, $75 plus $12 flat rate shipping
