Top 10 Unique Gifts to Give Home Cooks in Your Life
As the holidays draw near, plenty of us are making our lists and checking them twice—and it’s not unusual to realize that there is more gift giving to complete. To help, here are ten gifts to consider for the home chef in your life.
#1 Best of the Season Box
The best of the season box contains the freshest produce of the season, ready to ship directly to your loved one’s door—and, through our subscription option for farm-fresh vegetables, you can provide friends and family members with delicious and nutritious vegetables throughout the year.
#2 Gourmet Vegetable Box
For friends and family members who are passionately discerning foodies, consider this incredible box of gourmet vegetables. Like everything that’s grown at The Chef’s Garden, these deliciously farm-fresh vegetables and herbs are regeneratively farmed with love, harvested at the peak of flavor and freshness.
#3 Flowerhouse Tea Experience
When seeking unique gifts for friends and family, be sure to look at our Flowerhouse Tea Experience box. This box contains three unique tea blends, each containing edible flowers, herbs and more grown on our farm, plus a 5-ounce box of cut honeycomb from our beehives, a sampling of our traditional mint, tea infuser, and wooden spoon.
#4 Honeybee Experience
Our Honeybee Experience box is similar to the unique gift idea described above, with each item connected to the bees we tend with love on our own grounds. This box contains a 5-ounce box of cut honeycomb; 6-ounce container of creamed honey; 50-count box of mixed edible flowers; Flowerhouse Tea (Green Herbal); tea infuser; and a wooden spoon or honey dipper.
#5 Cut Honeycomb
Picture heavenly honeycomb filled with deliciously fresh honey—and that’s exactly what you’ll get with cut honeycomb. Harvested from our hives, this waxy comb is full of silky-smooth honey with incredible flavor. (In other words, this honey is so fresh that it hasn’t even been removed from the comb yet!)
#6 One-of-a-Kind Marmalade
We’re always seeking unique collaborations with like-minded people and companies—and one of our latest partnerships (with Prospect Jam Company) has led to four incredibly flavorful marmalades that use freshly harvested produce from our farm. Choose the flavors you like (we recommend all four!):
Carrot Cake Marmalade

#7 Gourmet Farm Experience Box
For the optimal gourmet farm experience, we recommend this personally curated gourmet box, one intricately connected with the regenerative farming we do. This unique gift truly cannot be found anywhere else, overflowing with our farm-fresh vegetables and herbs, 5-ounce box of cut honeycomb from bees tended with love on our grounds, Tomato Marmalade, Carrot Cake Marmalade, and Pepper Marmalade, Flowerhouse Malvaceae Blended Black Tea, Flowerhouse Soap and more.
#8 Vegetable Print French Chef’s Work Shirt and Bowtie Chef’s Apron
These exclusive items are in limited quantity, with the chef’s work shirt coming in a special veggie pattern print with a flap button pocket, hidden sharpie slot, and traditional collar. This shirt features a longer back, armpit vents, and an apron strap tab to make this chef work shirt more functional. This pairs wonderfully with our denim bowtie chef’s apron!

#10 Donate Fresh Vegetables to Those in Need
Many in our communities face hunger—and this may be more true today than ever. Donations are therefore vital in providing good food to those who need it. Farmer Jones Farm and The Chef’s Garden are teaming up with organizations such as The Hunger Network and Second Harvest Food Bank to provide nutritious fresh vegetables to those who are unable to afford or access them. Chime in to donate yours here.
All of us at The Chef’s Garden wish you a wonderful holiday season.
