Sweet & Spicy? A Bay Area Favorite with a Little Spice and Sass

candied-jalapenosDo you know someone who is both sweet and spicy? Of course, you do! We have the perfect gift for them. We are pleased to share that we carry the candied jalapeno’s from a Bay Area local vendor, Sonya’s Sweet & Spicy.

You can also buy the sweet and spicy jalapenos directly from Sonya’s Sweet and Spicy websiteSonyaSweetSpicy

Sonya is a local artist, podcaster, YouTuber, and also owns a business where she facilitates painting events called VinoPaint.  Her candied jalapenos are her new “foodie” business and they are delicious! During this Shelter In Place, she is also offering Virtual Paint Parties via Zoom. There is nothing this woman can’t do!

We feel like her sweet and spicy candied jalapenos are a perfect fit for some of our sassy baskets. We include it in our Sweet & Spicy tote, which is only $95.  We can add it to our other baskets if you would like us to customize something for your gift. Just call us at 408-504-3703 or email me at and we would love to make your fit more custom and extra special.

For about $35, you can also add a bottle of the Left Bend Winery red or white wine to this tote.  Left Bend is a local tasting room and winery, in Los Gatos – not too far from our workshop in San Jose. It’s a beautiful tasting room with fantastic owners who are very welcoming and informative.

We do ship all of our baskets and gifts all over the U.S. and we typically ship our online orders within a few days of your ordering. If you have a lot of gifts to buy and ship, we can also put a quote together for you for larger orders and custom orders, too. For an extra $5, we can also add custom ribbon with names, logos, or business websites to the ribbon we create for your gift.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you can see our new products. We have a lot of fun with our business and we love for you to follow along! And, remember us when you need to send out a thank you gift to a client or an extra special birthday gift.

Testimonial: Our customer Tyler Risk sent us this note we wanted to share. Tyler spent a bunch of time at Valley Medical in San Jose as a patient and she wanted to thank a whole bunch of nurses with our Thank You Gift Boxes.

Shawn met my nurse friend at 615am since her shift started at 630am so the boxes could be hand-delivered… she was super helpful.”

Gifts to Give Essential Workers, People on the Frontline, and your Favorite Nurses and Doctors

Superheroes Gift Bag

Superheroes are all around us these days. As the saying goes, not all superheroes wear capes. This pandemic and Covid19 has changed all of our lives in a matter of 4 weeks.

The frontline staff deserves all of our gratitude. They put in so many long hours, risking their own wellness and mental health for the rest of us. They deserve a special thank you gift!

Even Google got into the gratitude game and created a “Thank You To The Coronavirus Helpers” Google Doodle.  Google thanked the janitors and custodial workers, who often get overlooked. Of course, they also thanked all of the nurses, doctors, and other supporting admin staff and all of the scientists who have been working tirelessly for the greater good.

There are lots of lists out there for ways to thank the people on the frontline so we thought we would create a list, too. We want to help you to show your gratitude to your US Mail Carrier, Your UPS or FedEx delivery people, the grocery checkers at your favorite grocery store and maybe even your Instacart delivery person.  Whomever it is what you want to thank, we are certain we can come up with a fantastic gift for them.

We were searching around for blogs and articles about how to thank essential staff members and we found this helpful article from USA Today with “15 Gift To Give Essential Workers During the Coronavirus Epidemic.”

Be sure to also contact us about gifts for large groups of people or customized gifts. We have several hospitals that we work with and their staff has absolutely adored the gifts we made for their frontline staffers. We especially love making gifts for all of these heroes and sheroes. It fills our hearts when we know we are making all of our gift baskets, but there is an extra special feeling when we make these gifts. You can email us for quotes and for ways to customize your thank you gifts. (We can do custom ribbon with names and logos, for example.)
