Delicious Circle B Ranch Gifts for Christmas
Delicious Circle B Ranch Gifts for Christmas
John and I would cannot thank our customers enough for the support you have given us during this very trying year. Each and every order we get brings a smile to our face, and we really do appreciate them all! Let us finish your holiday shopping list off and help you bring your family back around the dinner table (whether it’s virtually, or in-person)!
It seems like just yesterday we were taking down the Christmas lights, and now it’s already time to put them back up! This has definitely been the longest, shortest, year (if you know what I mean). That being said, many of us have already begun the hunt for Christmas gifts for our friends and family. With many parts of the country reverting back to more restrictive rules on travel and group gatherings, we’re starting to understand that this holiday season will be a unique one, to say the least.
Because there are more restrictions on where we can go, more and more of us will be turning to online shopping to get the things we need off our Christmas shopping list. While stores like Amazon, Walmart, and Target won’t be too impacted by this, small businesses will – which is why we strongly encourage you to shop small whenever you can.
What it Means to Support a Small Business
This year has been tough, to say the least. Unfortunately, many small businesses have had to pack and close up shop due to COVID-19. When you support a small business and shop local, you not only benefit from the unique products and services they offer, but you are supporting your community.
There are a lot of benefits you can find from shopping small as well: personalized customer service, more ethical sourcing and packaging, and it’s more rewarding knowing you are helping someone just like you, rather than someone that already has deep pockets. Because of the pandemic, many small businesses have pivoted the way they have their customers shop in order to increase safety. Now, you’ll find that they offer online shopping, private video call ordering, and even hands-free porch delivery. Just think – you definitely won’t find a big company offering to Facetime you to show a product off!
Gifts from Circle B
My family has always been a fan of giving Christmas gifts that you know someone can (and will) actually use… which is why they are usually food-based! Cooking and baking are things that brought my family together – and not only during the holidays. I’m a strong believer that cooking is a great stress reliever and this year has needed a lot of it! Circle B products are all handmade and wholesome, and would make wonderful gifts to bring your family together in a time where we all feel separated (even if you have to cook with them virtually!).
Gift Ideas for the Mom That Likes to Cook
Many moms cook all year round, so what better gift to give than something that will make it a little bit faster and easier? Cooking during the holidays, especially, can get quite overwhelming when it’s hard to find ham and pork in the stores. Luckily, Circle B Ranch has you covered! Try our Holiday Ham Bundle to keep Mom taking multiple trips to different stores to find what she needs!
You can also gift Marina’s Kitchen Breakfast Bundle, Gluten-free Meatballs (perfect for the new year if she decides to drop gluten from her diet!), and Sweet Italian Sausage to make Mom’s life just a bit easier. Along the same lines, Mom might also enjoy trying out Marina’s Natural Fresh Fruit Chutneys and Gluten-Free Bloody Mary Mix!
Gift Ideas for the Dad That Likes to Barbecue
If barbecuing is dad’s favorite past-time, even in the winter, you do not want to pass up a Circle B gift for him! We offer Baby Back Ribs, NF Hotdogs, Pork Steaks, Boston Butt Roasts, Pork Tenderloin, Pork Shoulders, and more. If you’d like to get dad a bundle of Circle B products ready to go on the grill, we recommend trying our Porkdown Package or Big John’s Grill Pack (which comes in a regular and large version!).
Maybe dad is a sauce fanatic and is always looking to try new things. Don’t fret – Circle B has those too! Within Big John’s Summer Grilling Gift Set, you’ll find three 16-ounce jars of barbecue sauce, chop and steak sauce, and our Top Tomato Bloody Mary Mix. In the Circle B Ranch Foodie Gift Pack, you’ll see three 12-ounce jars of homemade ketchup, chop and steak sauce, and barbecue sauce.
Gift Ideas for the Kids
As you know, kids can be really picky when it comes to what they’ll eat. Rather than worry about feeding your children extra sugar and artificial food, think about Circle B Ranch’s nitrite-free bacon snack sticks! These natural snacks are the perfect alternative to unhealthy junk food; and the best part is that they taste delicious!
Our bacon snack sticks come in three flavors: Jalapeno, Original, and Hawaiian. While we don’t typically recommend the Jalapeno Snack Sticks for kids, the Original and Hawaiian snack sticks are great for quick snacks in the car or in packed school lunches.
Gift Ideas for Someone You Don’t Know What to Get
The holidays are all about giving… even when you aren’t sure what to get someone. Rather than getting them a present you’re not quite sure they’ll actually use, think about giving them a Circle B Ranch gift certificate! Not only will you know that they will use it, but you’ll know that anything they buy will be going to feed their family.
On the other hand, maybe you’re not sure what to order from our site for yourself now but know that you want to support a small business during the holidays. Gift certificates are a great way to do so! Our gift cards come in $50 and $100 increments, making it easy for you to stick to your holiday budget.
