Gifts for Everyone on Your List

Products with Purpose

Time to get shopping for everyone on your list, teachers, neighbors, family, even the mail person or delivery driver. Let's face it after this year, most normal processes were upended at least somewhat, and finding a safe and convenient way to fulfill gift lists can be challenging. We are here for you! We present here our 2020 gift guide for perusal. 

Support Local

MN Brands For Good offers a fundraising catalog each fall (and spring) for groups around the state to sell MN made products with a purpose, earning 40% on everything sold. All orders ship directly to the supporter or purchaser, making ordering convenient and eliminating typical fundraiser slowdowns for packing and shipping through the organization. Shopping with MN Brands for Good supports Minnesota small businesses and groups looking to their own meet budgetary goals. 

Our Brands

Check out the full catalog below, but here are our top picks for your gift list. If you really can't decide, check out the gift sets and collections page at the back of the catalog. 

Teacher – There are a of couple options for our teachers this season. A favorite is New Life Coffee, a small batch MN roastery working toward sustainability and fair-trade coffee. Pair with Winter Goddess Cranberry Walnut Granola for a sunny breakfast pick up or perhaps Mr. B’s Chocolate Variety Gift Box. Both gifts support the Minnesota gourmet community.

For Him – This year we are cooking breakfast at home more than ever. How about Sturdiwheat pancake mix and syrup in his stocking this year? Out of Red Wing, Sturdiwheat has perfected their own grinding method to process wheat that is not heavy but still retains the nutritious qualities. Add on the Vintage Studio cookie cutter 2pk so he can eat his pancakes as intended, in the shape of Minnesota or Babe.

For Her – This gift category might be the easiest and the most difficult because all of the gifts in this gift guide could fit the bill. We would be remiss if we didn’t recognize the gourmet that keeps all her fam and friends comforted and fed. Triple Crown Organic BBQ Sauce is a MN state fair award-winning sauce that is not to be missed. Add some 127 blend or rib rub by Here’s the Deal Spice.

Neighbor – Share a sweet treat with neighbors isolating along with you all year. We like a Nordicware bundt cake pan and Lemon Buttermilk mix, or the geometric cookie stamps with a MN hand towel from Vintage Studio. Nordicware is a Minnesota institution still made in St. Louis Park and operating since 1946. How neighborly.

Local Small Business Owner/delivery driver/mail person – Talk about a stressful profession this year! Show your appreciation with some Winter Goddess Tranquility Chia, a few pieces of their specialty caramel moment and some Essence One essential oil rollers.

Teens – Teens are notoriously hard to reach, but we have you covered. Add some vinyl stickers from Nice Enough for their Mac or water bottle. Check out Essence One Energy shower steamers and Kind Lips balms. We all need kindness and up-and-at-em, but maybe teens even more.  

Stocking Stuffers

We’ll just leave a list of sorts here, but all of these goodies are perfect for stockings, to add as a gift topper, or just build out gift baskets:

Maddy & Maize use only high-quality ingredients to create specialty flavors like birthday cake, dark chocolate caramel, or bourbon barbeque. Not to miss!

Kind Lips is on a mission to spread kindness and goodwill to all. Their lip balms are made with 100% natural ingredients like beeswax, olive oil, and shea butter to care for your lips.

Nice Enough is sharing real personality with their vinyl stickers and products. Who doesn’t need a yeti, Gnomeste gnome, or a Loon-i-corn sticker?

Gina B Designs works to support local charities like ICA food shelf and Sharing and Caring Hands. Beautiful art adorns stationery, recipe cards, and more.
