Valentine's Day Gift Guide - Honey Gift Boxes from Carmel Honey Co.

If you're looking for the perfect gift this Valentine's Day, you can't get much sweeter than a gift that is produced locally, helps the environment, and contributes to research and education for the betterment of the world.

Holiday gift boxes featuring honey and custom Carmel Honey Company logo items are now available from the company, which was founded by 14-year-old Carmel student Jake Reisdorf, who was 11 at the time. The gift boxes are available online or at the company's store in Carmel.

Three gift packages available:

> $100 box. This box features a custom Carmel Honey Company logo apron, custom mug with attached spoon, custom honeybee/honeycomb design socks, a 12-oz. jar of Wildflower Honey, an Orange Blossom Honey Stix pack, and a honey dipper, all in a white box with bow.

> $50 box. Features Earl Grey Supreme Tea in a silver tin, 8-oz. jar of Sage Honey, custom mug with attached spoon, and honey dipper in black box with bow.

> $30 box. Features a four-pack of Carmel Honey Company honey, Sage Honey, Wildflower Honey, Orange Blossom Honey and Meadowfoam Honey, gift wrapped in black box with bow.

The four types of honey currently produced comes from Jake's 120 beehives, and is all-natural, pure, raw, premium honey that comes straight from the hives.

And Reisdorf, as part of his “Jake Gives Back” program, donates some of his proceeds from the sale of his honey to organizations that are expanding research and education efforts by addressing the production, nutritional value, health benefits, economics, and/or quality standards of honey bees and honey.

So when you purchase these gift boxes from the Carmel Honey Company, (or place a honey bee pollination hive in your backyard), you have contributed to the research and education of the public on the importance of pollination and the benefits of the honey bee.

Carmel Honey Company honey gift boxes can be purchased directly from the website (which grew out of a class project) at www.carmelhoneycompany.com 

My Thoughts

Honey is one of my favorite sweet treats and additions to my food and drinks. Not only is it good for you, but it is also a great substitute for sugar. Different types of tea with honey has always been my go to drink for energy, relaxation, as well as relief for any seasonal colds I get.  This delicious honey variety from Carmel Honey Company was an amazing addition to my honey collection.  It comes in both single use sticks and jars, and provides natural sweetness that hits the spot! 

The Carmel Honey Co honey had a wonderful thick texture. It's also much better for you than processed sugar honey that many on the market brands are made from. I loved how nice and sweet this was, and the beautiful packaging. I loved the unique taste of it. It's thick with a light yet flavorful taste. 

If you are looking for a natural, healthy, and flavorful honey, Carmel Honey Co selections are for you! Their beautiful gift boxes would also make a great Valentine's Day gift for anyone on your list.
