6 Edible Last-Minute Gifts Every Adult Will Absolutely Love


Have you procrastinated on holiday shopping? If so, you’re not alone, and it’s not too late. If you act very soon, you can still delight everyone from your best friend to your rather crotchety old aunt (we know something about those).

No matter when you buy your gifts, you still want to give only the best. Wutta Nut! Pecans fit the bill perfectly. Lightly seasoned, not smothered, you can taste the delicious flavor of slow-roasted pecans enlivened with mouth-watering herbs and spices in every bite.

Best of all, you can order this week, and still have gifts delivered straight to their doorsteps long before Santa harnesses his reindeer.

But, you must act soon. Your last day to order for pecan pack or gift box delivery before December 25 is December 16, and some flavors and gift boxes may not be available. So, sit back, get comfortable, and get all your shopping done. Aunt Patricia reminds you that D O N E is an excellent four-letter word.


Gift Boxes

Ever watch adults open a gift box and discover item after item? Have you noticed how they become kids again? Take them back to their younger days with one of our roasted pecan gift boxes. They are available in an endless variety, so that you can pick and choose exactly what you want to give.

Every gift pack includes two pecan pairing cards. One pairing card suggests combinations of seasoned pecans with popular red and white wines. The other recommends dry, mild, soft, and strong cheeses to munch along with the pecans.

Whether you’re shopping for men, women, the health-conscious, or foodies, we have gift boxes that will arrive in time and show your loved ones you care.

Gifts for Him

Whether it’s for that special guy in your life, a brother, a colleague, neighbor, or an appreciation gift for a favorite teacher, finding the right gift for a guy can be a challenge.

That’s why we created our Gifts for Him gift boxes.  They’re a treasure chest of savory, salty, and spicy flavors all lightly wrapped around roasted pecans. They’ll keep him happily snacking, and thanking you, all the way into the new year. For the beer aficionados, also check out our Beer Fest gift boxes.  

Gifts for Her

Great friendships come together when women get together with other women. And often these get-togethers involve coffee or wine. Roasted seasoned pecans pair perfectly with both by adding earthy sweetness, natural fat that’s good for you, and crunchy texture. I recommend both our getaway Wine Weekend and our Summer Fun any time of the year gift boxes.

Gifts on a Budget

When you need a gift for a family or group and want a gift that impresses without breaking your budget, take a look at our pantry packs. These jars are filled with 21 ounces of savory snacking goodness in the flavor of your choice. They also work well if you’re buying a gift of appreciation on behalf of a small group.


Stuff Those Stockings

No matter your age, there’s something special about the small gifts that tumble out of the Christmas stockings. As Santa’s helper, you want those gifts to be useful, and fun, and, unexpected. As Santa’s financier, you know those little stocking stuffers can add up fast, so you want these last-minute gifts to wow without breaking your budget.

We recommend our small snack packs. Each 1.6 ounce pack is good for one to two servings, just enough for a morning coffee break, a late-afternoon energy boost, or to go with an evening beer, wine, or cocktail. They’re available in an assortment of savory flavors, and the resealable pouches mean you can save some for later.
