Holiday on a Budget

Posted by Olivia on Saturday, December 12th, 2009

If you're anything like me, you haven't finished your holiday shopping yet. You meant to—you really did. But life has gotten in the way. Work, family, friends, holiday parties galore. Not to mention that the shopping scene is scarily busy right now, with hoards of people fighting for the perfect gifts. Yeah, I'll pass.

Oh, and also, gift-shopping can be really expensive.

Well, I'm thrilled to tell you that The Olive Press is here to help, with lots of fantastic, affordable gifts for all your last-minute holiday shopping needs. I give you, The Olive Press Under $30 List:

The Olive Press' award-winning olive oils make the perfect gift for the special foodie in your life. All Extra Virgin Olive Oils are a mere $18 for 250 ml, or $26 for 500 ml. Or, tempt your favorite home chef with a gorgeous bottle of The Olive Press' Citrus Olive Oils. At a mere $20 for 250 ml, they make a unique gift that will open up a whirlwhind of culinary creatvity. For the salad fiend, choose a 2 Bottle Mini Sampler, featuring delicious Master Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil and versatile, complex Champagne Balsamic Vinegar for an incredibly low $18.

So, I'm currently obsessed with The Olive Press' tapenades. With 3 delicious flavors—Spicy Green Olive, Kalamata Olive and Tuscan Olive, it's hard to choose a favorite…so why try? For just $26, you can give your loved ones a beautifully-wrapped set of all 3. Also, what goes better with The Olive Press' olive oils than artisan balsamic vinegar?
