During a time when businesses are in such need of local support, we wanted to put together a list of businesses for gift ideas this holiday season. 

Lovelace Made Woodworks

A Monterey woodworker with incredible talent. Cutting boards, wine caddies, wooden spoons, coffee/dining tables and more! 

Carmel Honey Company

A wonderful selection of local honey perfect for holiday gifts. 

Lula’s Chocolates

There’s nothing like dark chocolate with coast sea salt and caramel inside. This is a local favorite, and would make a great stocking stuffer!

Captain & Stoker Coffee

Some of the best coffee on the Monterey Peninsula. This young couple has built an amazing community, and they are always looking for ways to give back. Let’s keep their holiday business thriving!

Chaya Monterey Tea

An assortment of aromatic Japanese Tea’s great for the cooler weather approaching. 

Nielsen’s Carmel Gift Baskets

Create a great gift basket full of Carmel goods or buy a few stocking stuffers – local pasta sauces, pastas, olive oils, vinegars, honey, chocolate, coffee, the list goes on. 

Carmel Naturals

A new local business with skin care, scrubs, and facials made with natural ingredients and home to Carmel! 

Positively Nutz

Carmel Valley creators of delicious nut butter with compostable, sustainably sourced packaging!

The Bookworks

A gift certificate to the Bookworks would make a great holiday gift for the coffee while reading enthusiast. It’s a cute cafe in downtown Pacific Grove that opens further into a bookstore behind the cafe.
