Unlocking Litchfield Holiday Gift Guide

We’ve done the legwork and found the perfect gifts from some of our favorite businesses in Litchfield County. There’s really no need to deal with mall crowds – enjoy shopping locally, get great service, and find unique gifts! Don’t forget, most of these stores will ship. Happy shopping!


Nutmeg Olive Oil – Such a great gift that would appeal to so many. You have the edible factor, the pretty presentation factor, and the life’s little luxuries factor all covered with a custom made basket from Nutmeg Olive Oil. Give Maureen your budget and she’ll help you come up with just the right basket. They carry a varied selection of additional items to compliment the best olive oils and vinegar you can buy. They’ll even ship for you. Great idea for corporate, host or hostess gifts! New Milford. 860-354-7300

The Primitive Home – Made in-house at The Primitive Home, these handcrafted wooden signs are just awesome. Give anyone on your gift list a sign – perhaps their name, town, or favorite saying.

The White Horse – A Country Pub and Restaurant – Do good while doing your gift shopping. The White Horse Restaurant and Pub comes up with a new Christmas ornament every year. Made in Litchfield County at Woodbury Pewter, 100% of the proceeds are donated to the Connecticut Food Bank. Each ornament represents a 60-meal donation. How about attaching one to a gift certificate to the White Horse? Double gift giving points for you! Marbledale. 860-868-1496

Housatonic River Outfitters – For the fisher/outdoorsy people in your life, or the person who likes experiences/activity gifts, this is a great one. Stop in to purchase all the fishing paraphernalia you can imagine, or how about a gift certificate to go on a snowshoeing tour this winter? Or give them something to look forward to, a fly fishing lesson/guided trip for next spring. They ship, so give them a call! Cornwall Bridge. 860-672-1010

Nordica Toys – We absolutely love this wooden Advent calendar by Byers’ Choice, which Marie tells us is such a hot seller at her toy store. A little cubbyhole for each day in December leading up to Christmas – fill with toys or candy and use it year after year. Good for anyone with kids, or could be pretty good for adults too. Get creative with what you put in there and perhaps start a new holiday tradition in your family! Also makes a great baby shower gift! New Milford. 866-870-2630

Elizabeth Richard – Another fabulous custom idea. Say it on a pillow! These Marshes Fields and Hills pillows are hand-painted in the US and can be shipped directly to you or the recipient. Choose your pillow style, fabric color, font, and say what you want! You can also pick up ready-made and ready-to-wrap in the store. Give them something that’ll make them smile and make them comfortable! Woodbury. 203-267-GIFT(4438)
