Making It Simple To Give Local

Are you looking for a unique and thoughtful gift this holiday season? If you’re passionate about shopping local, or you’re interested in delicious food – The Mustard Seed Holiday Gift Bag is just the thing! This is our second year presenting these bags, and last year they were a huge hit! A perfect gift for a family member, friend, neighbour, or perhaps someone you don’t know as well: a teacher, a caregiver, or a local business owner – this bag will bring holiday joy to anyone!

Follow this link to place an online order – or read on for more information.

The items listed below come packaged in our reusable burlap shopping bags, and are ready-to-give, with vibrant tissue paper already included. This year, we’ve incorporated an extra special element, as the bags will feature artwork by local artist Julia Veenstra.

We have chosen a delightful selection of local products that will make your mouth water! All bags contain the following items:

  • Karma Candy All-Natural Candy Cane (Hamilton, Ontario
  • Barrie’s Asparagus Chia Seed Crisps (Cambridge, Ontario)
  • Dawson’s Garlic Jalapeno Hot Sauce (Hamilton, Ontario)
  • Hotti Biscotti Large Holiday Biscotti (Hamilton, Ontario)
  • Savvy Chef Mustard (Original Grainy or Creole) (London, Ontario)
  • Chocolate Tales Elaborate Truffle Pop (Hamilton, Ontario)
  • Stasis Preserves Jam (Strawberry Rhubarb, Blueberry Blackberry, Pear & Roasted Garlic, or Sweet Pepper) (Toronto, Ontario)
  • Maria’s Vegetable Pappardelle Pasta (Kitchener, Ontario)
  • Martin’s Apple Chips (Waterloo, Ontario)
  • Coffeecology Seasonal Blend Coffee (roasted in Hamilton, Ontario)

Inside the bag, you’ll find a full colour version of the piece that inspired the artwork on the bags, which you can frame, hang on the fridge, or turn into a greeting card!

Ordering online is helpful if you’d like to pay with credit card, or if you won’t be by the co-op for a few days and want to reserve some bags.
