HERE’S THE HOLIDAY SCOOP…
217 Main Street, Wethersfield
Calling all coffee lovers (wait...isn't that pretty much everyone?)...We are super excited to tell you about Drumroll Coffee Roasters in Wethersfield owned by Glastonbury residents, Siobhan and Vin Federici. They opened their Main Street shop just about a year ago and have been thriving ever since. That's because they are the REAL DEAL. They legit have some of the most delicious coffee we have ever tasted. Vin's passion for roasting and offering customers the best of the best shines through when he talks about the business. He roasts small batch coffee from all around the world with top of the line, organic beans and the result is a clean, smooth coffee taste. This holiday season, they are offering customized baskets of coffee (you can even choose from fun names like Winter in Wethersfield and Snow Day), a new monthly coffee subscription called The Drum Circle, or simply a pound of your loved ones favorite. The best part? THEY SHIP ANYWHERE! Cousin in Cali? Mom in Milwaukee? Bestie in Brooklyn? DONE! To check off another person on your list from the comfort of your couch, go to www.drumrollcoffeeroasters.com
CENTER WINE & SPIRITS
41 Hebron Avenue, Glastonbury
The easiest and potentially most appreciated gift on the planet? Wine and spirits, of course! And this year, we love this unique offering from Center Wine & Spirits...they are putting together Customized Cocktail Kits with all the fixings for a favorite drink. Manhattan? Dirty Martini? Paper Plane? Last Word? You name it, they will put it together for you in a nice little package. A few things you need to know before you go: 1. They are relaunching private tasting parties in 2022 (more to come on that soon) and 2. They are offering 10% off WINE PURCHASES on Small Business Saturday when you mention The Scoop! If you haven't been, we guarantee it will be your new fave spot for grabbing libations!
2687 Main Street, Glastonbury
If you haven't noticed, the gift options at Katz Hardware just keep getting better and better! WE. WANT. EVERYTHING. But we are trying to focus on others this year...sooooo, here are some great gift ideas: Brand new YETI colors are out now and include gray, pink, red, and a deep green (YES PLEASE!). The localized candles for your section of town are going like hot cakes (they have all the areas covered). We love the selection of rugged hats with funny sayings. Or, how about the most adorable and festive bottle openers around with mini or large bells (a celebration every time you open a brew!)? While your there, you may as well get something for yourself, because....WHY NOT?
EMMY LOU'S GIFT SHOP
17 Hebron Avenue, Glastonbury
Emmy Lou's Gift Shop has the kind of gifts that are tried and true and perfect for just about anyone. We love the Christmas room offerings: beautifully detailed nutcracker soldiers, stunning and festive holiday wreaths, or festive holiday table decor. Another standout is the selection of glass blown ornaments, like the Patriots helmet for the Pats fan in the fam. There are hats and gloves (for mom, dad, grandma, sister-in-law, or BFF), a huge collection of different styles of dress-up jewelry, gorgeous bags, ponchos, and more. So much to look at, so little time, but we think it's a great place to start this Saturday!
