I always get a little sad this time of year because so many of my dearest friends live far away. It’s a reflection of all the various places I’ve lived and visited throughout the course of my life, but it means that I don’t always get to see my closest friends (“my people” if you’re a Grey’s Anatomy fan) during the holidays. To remedy this, I always curate a fun gift box of presents for each of them so they know I’m thinking of them. This year, inspired by delicious toffees from Enstrom, I wanted to share my long distance holiday gift giving tips with you, especially if you’re in the same situation as I am!

If you’re not familiar with Enstrom, you’re going to want to be! Hand crafted in small batches, these rich, buttery toffees make for a delectably luxe gift. Personally, I’m a big fan of the milk chocolate almond toffee, but there is dark chocolate, too. Each kind is covered in crushed almonds which is a really lovely contrast to the silky, buttery texture of the toffee. Available in 1, 2, and 4 pound packages, this toffee makes for an amazing gift — even on its own!

The toffee is definitely the centerpiece of the gift box, so I selected a few more small batch gifts to include, such as:

You can also include smudge sticks, crystals, a pretty journal, or a luxe hand cream.

Once I’ve decided on the items for my gift box, I like to tie pretty ribbons around each item, making sure to use the different ones. I really like that mixed look! Fill your gift box with tissue paper and nestle each item into the paper. Make sure that the items are cushioned well since these boxes will eventually be mailed!

Once you’re finished, wrap a wide satin ribbon around the whole gift box. You can also wrap the box, too, but I sometimes I just like the look of a really nice, high quality box. Then place the box in a shipping box, filling any gaps with additional packing materials to prevent it from moving around.

And one more tip… I suggest getting a box of Enstrom toffee for yourself to snack on while you wrap these packages!

    Perhaps only a Colorado thing but Enstroms has large jars of toffee candies available in Costco here. So good
