Has anyone else noticed that grocery markets have upped the ante on novelty items? It seems that I can’t go to a food market without buying candles, silver polish, or dish towels. Yes, inflation is on the rise but at least it’s one-stop shopping.
If you’re Covid paranoid, you can kill two birds with one stone. And if the market is a superstore, add in fresh flowers and medications.
Here are a few of my favorite market items that I buy over and over again:
1. For the gadget guru:
A citrus juicer with lemons or limes. Cocktails and baking just got easy.
2. For the perfectionist:
Silver wipes. They come in handy to touch up a piece of silver or silver jewelry.
3. For a Martha Stewart:
Holiday-themed napkins. Every holiday from Easter to Christmas in cocktail and dinner sizes.
4. For the baker:
A preserving kit with fruit, pectin, jars, and sugar. Throw in a recipe and homemade jam here you come.
5. For the kids:
A smores kit with roasting sticks, chocolate, and marshmallows. This calls for a campfire!
6. For the chocolate lover:
Premium chocolate. It comes in every shape, form, and color. What a fun gift to give, get, and eat!
7. For the wine connoisseur:
Not only a special bottle but lovely gift bags for wrapping.
8. For the cook:
Spices. They make terrific gifts. Think cinnamon sticks for boiling when guests arrive or cinnamon for baking.
9. For the family:
Prepared foods. If someone is sick or just had a baby, you can take food that has been prepped, is ready to go, or can be put in the freezer for later use.
10. For the health-conscious:
Nuts. Protein makes a great gift, and since they come in every shape and size, who wouldn’t want a basket full of them for all to enjoy?
