Tupelo Honey Gift Ideas

If you're looking for a sweet gift idea for almost any special occasion, consider all things Tupelo honey.  The all-natural treat is sure to please everyone on your guest list, from kids to adults of all ages. 

Harvested only near the Georgia and Florida state lines, Tupelo honey is known for its creamy, buttery texture, and deep golden hue. Since it's produced in such a small region, Tupelo honey is often considered a highly sought-after southern delicacy. You can find it in health food and specialty stores, as well as online retailers. 

This high-quality honey is available in both jars and bottles and can be used in a wide variety of food and drink recipes, as well as in luxury products. No matter what form you purchase it in, Tupelo honey makes thoughtful gifts for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, graduations, housewarmings, bridal showers and weddings.

Following are some Tupelo honey gift ideas to consider for your next special occasion:

1. Honey and Tea Sets 

Honey and hot tea make the perfect pairing for any tea drinker on your gift-giving list. Start with a bottle or jar of Tupelo honey, and pick the recipient's favorite type of tea, such as Earl Grey or chamomile. 

If you don't know what he or she prefers, stick a tea sampler to give them a taste of everything. Some tea ideas include black, green, oolong, rooibos and an herbal mix. You can choose specific morning, evening and fruit-flavored blends as well. 

Place the tea and honey in a reusable wicker basket, and include a mug to round out the gift. As a personalized touch, choose a mug featuring the recipient's name, monogram, favorite type of dog, or any other special design.

2. Honey, Dried Fruit and Nut Tray 

Honey becomes part of a healthy and delicious snack when included on dried fruit and nut tray. You can either customize the gift yourself, or pick a pre-made tray from a specialty Tupelo honey retailer. 

Stick with a gourmet selection of fruits and nuts, such as cashews, almonds, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, apricots, cherries, apples and orange rings. Choose chocolate-covered dried fruit and nuts for a decadent treat, which is ideal for Valentine's Day.

3. Tupelo Honey Spa Set 

Give the recipient a full spa experience with gift set featuring Tupelo honey and hot tea, honey-scented body wash and lotion, and a honey-infused face mask and bubble bath. An all-natural beeswax candle featuring the sweet scent of honey will make a great addition to the gift set.
