Gift Items for You and Yours!


Hello-ho-ho and Happy Hanukkah!

It's that time of the year when we're all thinking about things we can get our friends and family that they'll love and we'll feel good about. And whether your tradition is Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas or Solstice, we've got some fun stuff in the house!

First off, although the Gelt we ordered didn't come in, we do have Hanukkah candles from Goodlight. We all hope your third day of Hanukkah has been wonderful. 

Regardless of your tradition, if gift giving is part of it, PFC has you covered. We have invested some time and thought this year into gift items for you and yours; here's our list we've been checking twice:

  • Jewelry - Nia recently added crystal earrings to our collection of Matr Boomie fair trade, small enterprise jewelry from India. 
  • Cozy Wearables - Sourced ethically from around the world, we have:
    • Andes Gifts - connecting Kalamazoo to 40 women-owned cooperatives and 80 family knitting groups in Bolivia and Peru.
    • Terra Natural Designs - Made by women artisans in Ecuador.
  • Experiential gifts - How about a cooking class at PFC? Or attend our new "Learn to Make Vitamin Gummies" Wellness Class at PFC? Or, a visit to our region's premier Farmers Market?
    • We have gift vouchers you can purchase, redeemable for any posted cooking class of the bearer's choice. 
    • We also have Kalamazoo Farmers Market (KFM) Market Bucks, a gift certificate that can be used at KFM outdoor market, May through November.
  • Plants - We plan to have a selection of giftable plants in stock through the season. Right now we have frosted ferns and paperwhites... look for succulents coming soon!

PFC has an array of holiday cards by Good Paper. Deliver delight, encouragement, hope, or joy with their handcrafted Fair Trade greeting cards.

And don't forget to stuff your stockings with a great selection of single sized lip balms, lotions, snacks, chocolates and local fruits. Check out these LOCAL nifty ideas:

And always think PFC first as your planning your dinner table for this or any holiday.

Thank you! Your shopping at PFC makes great things possible.
