Is anyone else’s mouth watering? Plus, check out that cutting board! ;-)

 

A Valentine’s Day Gift Basket! – The Perfect Treat for Someone You Love

It’s only the last day of January, but love is already in the air for the folks of Vernon. We were recently asked by the Vernon Free Library if we would like to donate an item for a Valentine’s Day Gift Basket that they’ll be raffling off on February 13th. Being supporters of the local organizations in Vernon (and a lover of chocolate and wine myself) I had to say yes. Our friend, Bronna Zlochiver, came last week to pick up a cutting board to add to the basket and assured me and Douglas that the cutting board was going to make their basket something special. I hate to toot our own horn, but I think she was right!

The Valentine’s Day Gift Basket contains two bottles of French wine & two Riedel wine glasses donated by the White House of Wilmington, 2 blocks of cheddar cheese & a box of Westminster Bakers crackers donated by Grafton Cheese, Brinn chocolates made in Vermont donated by Baker’s Hallmark of Brattleboro, handmade napkins and of course, our very own cutting board made by Ken. Ticket’s are only $1.00 and with a value of over $400, I think it’s quite a deal.

I also just had to post a picture of a basket for everyone to enjoy. This gift is perfect if you’re looking to surprise your special someone with a date night at home this Valentine’s Day. Being single myself, I envy Valentine’s Day gifts, especially ones that involve food. I might have to buy a ticket and enjoy the wine, cheese and chocolates all on my own! Who says Valentine’s day is just for couples anyway?

If you’d like more information about how to win this marvelous basket, contact the Vernon Free Library or give us a call! The drawing is February 13th and tickets are just $1 (or 6 for $5)!

Valentines Day in Vermont

February 14th, 2013 by Peggy Farabaugh

Valentines Day in Vermont

Celebrate Valentines Day in Vermont by commissioning a heart-shaped chair at Steve Holman’s custom artisan furniture studio or renewing your wedding vows at the Mount Snow Cloud 9 Nuptials.

Try celebrating Valentines Day in Vermont!  Your romantic adventures could include anything from a visit to master craftsman Steve Holman’s  studio to getting married on the slopes of your favorite ski resort.

Steve’s one of our favorite Vermont artisans, crafting the impossible out of wood and transforming it into beautiful, often whimsical furniture.  Every Valentine’s Day I think of Steve’s bright red, heart-shaped chair.  Wouldn’t this be a show-stopper gift for your honey on a day like today?

If you’re looking for an outdoorsy agenda for Valentines Day, how about a trip to Mount Snow for the second annual Cloud Nine Nuptials?  Last year 20 couples  renewed their vows and three couples tied the knot for the first time at the summit of Mt Snow. The event is free, taking place on the Cloud Nine trail where a local justice of the peace conducts a ceremony around a giant heart painted on the snow.

For more Vermont Valentines Day activities, check out Ski Vermont or stop by Vermont Teddy Bear where you can buy the world’s most expensive teddy bear.  It’s the Big Hunka Love Bear and he goes for $30,000 including the 6 carat diamond ring he’s wearing.

Five Valentine’s Gift Suggestions From Vermont

February 7th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

Vt-valentines-gifts

What are you doing for your sweatheart for Valentine's Day?  How about a Vermont Teddy Bear or a romantic weekend getaway in Vermont?

 

For the ultimate in luxury check out Twin Farms, an "an intimate country hideaway set amid 300 acres of meadows and woodlands in an unspoiled valley, 15 minutes north of Woodstock, VT."  Besides all the other superlatives, Twin Farms has one of the best reputations in the Northeast for its natural, local organic cuisine. After dining you can indulge in a luxurious spa treatment before retiring to your own private suite or cottage.  Rates are all-inclusive and start at around $1500/night or $43,000 if you'd like to rent the whole place.

 

If that's a bit over your budget or you're not able to travel out of the city for Valentine's Day, here are a couple other gift suggestions.  How about Vermont Teddy Bear's Big Hunka Love Bear?  It's made right here in Vermont and the company is involved in many charitable initiatives in the local community and beyond.

 In the organic and fair trade department, we have Lake Champlain Chocolates Organic Chocolate Truffles, fresh all natural chocolates, made in Burlington, Vermont.  And Laughing Moon Chocolates made in Stowe, VT with locally sourced products whenever possible.

 

 

 Now if you REALLY want to show up on Valentine's Day with a truly unforgettable showstopper of a gift then I think you might have to consider commissioning Vermont's premiere luxury furniture artisan, Steve Holman to craft one of his Valentine's Day Heart Chairs for the love of your life.  We'll post the details about this heart-warming conversation piece on Valentine's Day.
