Unique Holiday Gifts from The Olive Press
Posted by Olivia on Mon, December 13, 2010
Tired of the same old holiday gifts? A pocket watch for Grandpa, a polka dot tie for Dad, a hand mixer for Mom. Great gifts, no doubt, but maybe you’re looking for something more unique and personal.
We’re all about making the gift-giving season something truly special, and at The Olive Press, we’ve got just the thing that tells your loved ones they are special. Give them something they couldn’t find elsewhere, something one-of-a-kind that will both delight and surprise them.
Let’s start with the bath selection. We have our very own line of soaps and salves, made with our award-winning extra virgin olive oil (not to mention all-natural tantalizing scents like lavender and tangerine!) These aren’t your run-of-the-soap-mill products found at the mall—they are hand-made, one-of-a-kind soaps that will truly enliven the senses—pure luxury! And we’ve just released a new line of lavender and olive oil bath products, including massage oil, foot balm, body lotion, and body butter—these exquisite lotions contain the same high-quality extra virgin olive oil you’ve come to know and love from us, plus a healthy blend of pure essential oils. Lavish your body with love!
After a full body treatment, your gift recipient is going to want to relax with a good book. Among our olive-centric book collection is one that truly shines, The New American Olive Oil. Renowned food author Fran Gage takes readers on a journey through American-produced olive oil, from harvest to table, and she includes 75 sumptuous recipes for you to try at home. It’s a must-have for any olive enthusiast.
As an ornamental and functional table topper, give your loved one a handmade artisanal cruet—these hand-painted bottles display oils and vinegars in one-of-a-kind artwork. These cruets will no doubt become handed down as family heirlooms over the holidays to come. And since your gift recipient will need something extra special to fill the extra special cruet, why not give them the best gift of all—fresh extra virgin olive oil. Give your loved one a membership to our Press Club, and every 3 months they’ll receive a special shipment of 2 bottles of our award-winning olives. A gift membership gets them a year’s worth of oil, four shipments total, so there will always have fresh olive oil on the table.
And if you’re on the hunt for the most affordable—yet unique—stocking stuffers on the planet of olive oil, check out our selection of gifts under $40. There is simply too much to mention here: olive oil samplers, gift bags, lavender gift sets, candles, kitchen accessories—you’ve got to give the selection a visit to see it all for yourself!
