Add a dash of creativity by including some decorative gourds and a heartfelt recipe for a fall-inspired dish. It’s a gift that celebrates the essence of the holiday.


Spa Retreat Basket

Thanksgiving can be a hectic time for many, with meal preparations and gatherings. A spa retreat gift basket is an ideal way to help someone relax and rejuvenate, and a perfect fit for Calistoga.

For those who can’t start their day without a cup of joe, a coffee lover’s gift basket is a caffeinated delight.

Dessert Lover’s Delight

Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without a tempting array of desserts.

It’s a thoughtful way to help spruce up the holiday decor.


Handcrafted and Homemade Basket
