Hickory Farms - Inspiring Traditions since 1951.

Last month I shared a post about my family's old and new family traditions and how Hickory Farms has been a staple in my family's tradition, especially when it comes to gift giving. If you missed my post, you can read it here:  Today, I wanted to take a few minutes to share about my family loves Hickory Farms so much and why when I think of holiday traditions, this company stirs up nostalgic memories of my youth and is one of the first stores I shop when starting my holiday shopping.

Traditions matter would you answer that question?  For me, traditions have become even more precious and important to me after battling cancer and welcoming my two girls, as I don't take life for granted anymore.  Each and every day is a gift and one that I cherish.  And, especially around the holidays, being together with family and friends and sharing in special moments and traditions make the holidays that much enjoyable and treasured.  

And, speaking of Hickory Farms, are you familiar with this, America's most famous holiday food gift brand?  I remember growing up my mom would send food gifts from Hickory Farms to family who lived far away and wouldn't be joining us for the holidays.  

Hickory Farms Signature Summer Sausage has been awarded the Masters of Taste Gold Medal for Superior Taste for having the #1 Summer Sausage in America. 

In return, we would receive a handful of packages from Hickory Farms in the mail from family doing the same. :-)  Hickory Farms offers perfect gift ideas for the holidays and year round.  

"According to a national survey, nearly half of American adults agree that the holiday shopping season officially starts when they see Hickory Farms arrive at their local mall."

From Sausage and cheese gift sets, to fruits and nuts, baked goods and chocolate to even wine and cheese combos, Hickory Farms has the most amazing selection of gifts to meet everyone's budget. They offer gifts for under $20 up to ones $90+.  Whenever the holidays roll around, I head on over to the Hickory Farms website to place my orders for family and friends.  I pick up a few gift sets to bring to my parents who host Christmas dinner, as hostess gifts.  Not only do my parents expect these gift sets year after year, but so do family and friends who come for dinner.  The baked good sets I bring make the dessert table that much more inviting and who can resists reaching for dried fruit and nuts while they wait for the turkey dinner to be done. :-)

Quality, freshness and value are key traits of Hickory Farms’ gift and products

"Many Americans have a distinct memory of Hickory Farms at their holiday gatherings; Hickory Farms is very proud to be a part of those nostalgic moments and continues to focus on and celebrate its long heritage of tradition and authentic holiday memories."

Instead of stressing out on what to get those hard to shop for people on my holiday list, I find myself putting down "Hickory Farms" next to their names when I start putting together my holiday shopping list in November.  I know that whatever gift I order will be well received by the gift recipient, as the quality of these gift sets are what make loyal holiday shoppers seeking the perfect gifts for family and friends for over 60 years coming back to order year after year, and passing the tradition of shopping Hickory Farms from parent to child, just like my mom did with my brothers and I. :-)

Visit for details.  I made a point to share this information with family and friends who serve in the military and/or will be sending gifts to military addresses this holiday season.  It was news to them, as it was me, but one that only made them love Hickory Farms even more as it makes sending food gifts to loved ones that much easier and affordable. :-)  Go Hickory Farms!

So, as I count down the final few days until Santa's arrival, I can't help but find myself thinking about my family's holiday traditions and what matters most.  And, come Christmas morning I know many of my family and friends will be unwrapping food gifts (if they haven't already) to enjoy with those near and dear to them.  It isn't Christmas without Hickory Farms in my family.  How about yours? :-)
