4th of July with Favor Custom Gifts

Favor Custom Gifts was founded on the belief that gifts should be thoughtfully curated with creativity and care, which is why we asked them to dream up the quintissential "wine country 4th of July" gift for us. Founders Jessica and Suzy draw on inspiration from each client and event, creating something completely unique each and every time. Favor's goal is to make gift giving an easy and stress free experience, whether it is a personal or corporate occasion. Favor has worked with clients like the Denver Broncos, Toyota, Salesforce, Porsche, and many more on custom gifts, and is partnered with wineries and distributors in wine country in order to offer a wonderful selection of local wines.

We teamed up with Jessica and Suzy to create a 4th of July themed gift- and boy did they deliver! Before I give you all the details, feast your eyes on their beautiful creation below. 

The basket is about as "wine country 4th of July" as it gets- including a bottle of Roth Pinot Noir, a pair of govinos stamped with american flags, a Paddywax Soy Candle from Paperwhite in Petaluma, and all of the ingredients needed to make the best s'mores you will ever eat.

The Roth Estates Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is sourced with grapes from the Sonoma Coast, where the vines are cooled by the fog and wind that breeze through the Petaluma Gap. This wine is perfect for a Sonoma evening around the fire pit with friends and delicious s'mores. 

The s'mores supplies include Cinnamon Churro marshmallows from Sonoma-based Smashmallow, that are made with all-natural ingredients. These decadent marshmallows take s'mores to a whole new level! In addition to these unique marshmallows, the basket included rich chocolate made by Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate in Eureka, CA. 

Rather than using the traditional graham crackers, Favor chose Chocolate Chunk Sea Salt cookies from Crisp Bakeshop in Sonoma. If you've never had one of these cookies, you should probably drop everything you're doing at this very moment to try one because they are really that good. This is a major s'mores upgrade if you ask me, and definitely something I will be trying out this summer. 

As you can see from most of the ingredients in this basket, Favor likes to source local items when possible. Since we envisioned a "wine country 4th of July" basket, this was the perfect opportunity to showcase some amazing, locally made products.

Jessica and Suzy scour local markets, winery tasting rooms, food and gift shows, and local blogs (whoop!) to make sure they are only providing their clients with the latest and greatest products available. This particular gift was envisioned as a hostess gift, or beautiful spread to share with guests and family while entertaining over the 4th of July holiday weekend. 

While Favor specializes in custom welcome gifts for guests arriving to Wine Country and the Bay Area, the scope of their work is only limited to what you can dream up! They are able to completely customize gifts for any occasion, level of formality, or type of client.
