Harvest Baskets for the Charcuterie Board Lovers
Looking for a way to build a personalized gift for a charcuterie board lover in your life? We recommend building a harvest basket with our artisan goods!

- Seasonal fruits such as winter citrus or pomegranates
- Fresh bundles of herbs
- Local veggies for something green
- Fresh cheeses
- Tasty jams and spreads
And whatever other creative ideas you can think of! Fill the basket to the brim, and you’re sure to wow your loved ones with this unique gift idea!
Local Honey for Tea Enthusiasts
Do you know an avid tea enthusiast who needs the final touch to their tea set? One of the best pairings with tea is a spot of honey. As the cooler weather comes to Gainesville, cozying up with some tea and honey warms the soul and can even protect from illness! Our honey selections are sourced from local bee farms and packed with nutrients and flavor. Different flowers give the honey a distinct flavor, so pick out a few to give some variety to your gift!
Local Art for the Artist in Your Life
The holidays are a season of giving, and why not give back to local artists by purchasing their work for your friends and family? Our store partnered with the late Ernest M. Lee—a local Gainesville artist—to create beautiful cards from his work. These are great gifts for the artists and art lovers in your life. Or include them as a little card with your other gifts!
World-Wide Drinks for Wine and Beer Lovers
Want a token of appreciation for the host with the most? A bottle of fine wine or a can of locally brewed beer makes the perfect companion! At Ward’s, you get to shop around the world with our wide selection of beers and wines. No need for a gift to make a dent in your wallet—some of our high-quality wine selections are less than $5. From Kosher wine to certified organic wine, you’ll be sure to find a great bottle for your gift needs.
If your loved one is more of a beer fan, we have a variety of specialty-crafted brews, including cans from local breweries like First Magnitude and Swamphead!
Spa-Experience Products for Self-Care Fans
One of the best gifts you can give is the gift of self-care. Rather than showing up with a standard spa gift card, make them an at-home spa experience! Our natural body care products are made with ingredients that are safe enough to eat so that your loved one can relax without worrying about potentially harmful chemicals. Put together our organic, local body care products such as:
- Face moisturizers
- Aloe products
- And more!
Gift this to loved ones—or buy some body care as a gift to yourself to relax after all the hard work spent on holiday shopping!
