The holiday season is fast approaching and we know how daunting it can be to find just the right gift for that special person on your list.

Our specialty may be packaging but we also know great gifts - that's because our customers make the best ones! We've put together a holiday gift list (and checked it twice!) so you can find something for everyone.


Cozy Comforts


For the "I need coffee NOW" person:

Black Creek Coffee is not your average coffee company. It all started on a trip to Costa Rica and so began their love for good coffee and great dogs. Now, 20% of their profits are donated to Canadian animal rescue organizations. Give the gift that every coffee lover dreams of: "I brought coffee."

For the espresso connoisseur:

With notes of chocolate, almonds, and orchard fruit, this espresso is for people wanting a cup that "hugs them like their favourite sweater." Based out of Montreal, Traffic Coffee roasts on Tuesdays and ships on Wednesdays, so you know you're getting a fresh roast.

For the cozy nights by the fire lover:

Who says holiday lattes are only for the coffee drinkers? The Organic Traditions Holiday Spice Latte is the perfect latte in an instant. Your Secret Santa will be thrilled to have this tucked in their stocking.

For the tea fiend:

We all have that one friend who loves their tea. Christmas is the perfect time of year to reload their supplies. Sipology by Steeped Tea has just the thing: a gift set with seasonal teas, a mug, and a pack of steeping sacks. A unique gift, without the steep price (see what we did there?) What else could you need?


Flavour Fanatics


For the chef:

You may recognize this brand from their sleek black bags and their bold flavour. Fire in the Kitchen is our go-to seasoning for every corner of the plate. The bbq beast, the home cook, and the holiday dinner wizard will all love this gift.

For the sweet snacker:

Christy's Gourmet makes us swoon with their sweet, crunchy snacks. There's nothing more satisfying than chasing that perfect crunch. We recommend their Original Craft Beer Brittle or their White Chocolate Cranberry Toffee Crunch (we also recommend ordering one for yourself too!)

For the savoury snacker:

Roasted nuts and beans are fantastic... Pickles are fantastic... Naturally, these Pucker Up Dill Pickle Roasted Soy Beans are also fantastic! The Bean Ladies know how to make the perfect roasted snack and we cannot get enough of them.

For the host (with the most):

If you haven't tried Deb's Dips, this is your official warning: you're missing out! Dips are an essential component of every gathering and are easily the star of the show. Lemon-Peppercorn is a classic must-have, and so are the rest of their mixes.

For the furry, four-legged flavour fanatic:

Live Well Pets is sure to make the four-legged on your list dance with joy! These single-ingredient snacks are the perfect treat. Live Well has flavourful, unique treats to satisfy any pet's appetite.


Sweet Tooth


For the person who never skips dessert:

Sullivan & Bleeker doesn't just make cupcakes... they make them in a jar! With cookies, candies and more, this Holiday Magic Gift Box is the sweetest place to start our list. Be sure to check all out all of their gift boxes to pick the perfect option for your sweetie pie.

For the vegan:

Everyone needs a little more Squish in their life. Vegan or not, recipients will be left feeling joyous and bright! The Holiday Edition Ultimate Combo Box is here for all your candy dreams. Be sure to check out all the holiday sets for every candy enthusiast on your list.

For the cookie monster:

Cookie It Up isn't just a brand name, it's a way of life. We adore these soft and buttery Salted Butterscotch Shorts. Plus - you can always leave a few out for Santa. Find out where to buy these delectable bites here.

For your honey:

Three Foragers Bee Co. practices sustainable beekeeping and uses our compostable packaging. All that and these tasty caramels! What else could your beehind need? Sneak a package (or two!) of these Sea Salt Honey Caramels into a sweet someone's stocking.

For the diehard chocolate fan:

Do you have a chocolate soul on your list? Then it's only fair to get them Chocosol's Rustico Pack. These true bean-to-bar stone-ground dark chocolates will change the way you think of chocolate. Best part? Chocosol recently switched to our brand-new Kraft Compostable Packaging. Looking for the next step up? Gift a truly unforgettable experience: an exclusive tasting tour of their Toronto facility!


For the Person Who Has Everything:


For someone who deserves a break:

The holidays can be a lot, especially for the already overworked mom or the stressed-out student. Give the gift that lasts more than one #selfcare session - Bathorium's CRUSH Large Holiday Set! This four-pack of their most popular bath soaks is sure to relax even the most overwhelmed person on your list.

For the New Year's Resolution:

Know someone planning a reset for 2020? Mid-Day Squares are the perfect sweet treat without the guilt. With 14g of protein and a real chocolate top, this will keep any New Year's Resolution on track.

For the teacher fighting off germs:

Smoov's Immunity Bundle is the perfect gift for staying healthy all winter. These smoothie blends are packed with nutrient-dense superfoods and can be added to almost anything! It's a great gift for anyone on your list who needs a little boost.

For the gardener (or wannabe gardener):

Mumm's Sprouting Seeds are a wonderful gift for the gardener on your list. This gift set is an excellent starter pack for those looking to expand their sprout selection and enjoy the fruits (or sprouts) of their labour - even in the winter! Sprouts can be enjoyed on salads, sandwiches, pizzas, soups, or straight down the hatch!


Phew! That was a long list! But we are glad we checked it twice! From everyone at Rootree, we wish you a joyous holiday season.
