‘Tis the season for spreading holiday cheer!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, filled with festive décor, delicious food and joyous gatherings. It can also be a stressful time of year, especially when it comes to gift giving. If you’re in need of a few last minute gifts for loved ones on your list, look no further than your local Heinen’s.
Whether you’re shopping for Mom, Dad, grandparents, kids, colleagues or friends this holiday gift guide lends a host of helpful ideas. Best of all, you can grab your groceries and gifts all at the same time. Now that’s something worth celebrating!
1. Two Brothers Limited Time Chocolate Bar Holiday Pack
Know someone with an insatiable sweet tooth? Two Brothers is the perfect answer for all of the chocolate lovers in your life. Made with premium Belgian chocolate, Two Brothers offers a variety of irresistible options including chocolate enrobed grahams, chocolate pretzels and an assortment of premium chocolate bars. To make stuffing stockings even easier this year, we packaged a few of our fan-favorite bars with two brand, new limited time seasonal bars to create the ultimate chocolate pack. Varieties include Dark Chocolate with Peppermint Brownie, Dark Chocolate with Cranberry and Almond, Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Milk Chocolate.
2. Vin Hunter Prosecco and Prosecco Rosé
Who doesn’t love a little fizz and sparkle around the holidays? Every year, we release our best-selling Vin Hunter Prosecco, made by our friends at the Loredan Gasparini winery, which is located in the Valdobbiadene and Asolo areas of Italy.
Last year, we added Vin Hunter Prosecco Rosé to our holiday lineup and it received rave reviews! Both options are lovely on their own, or mixed into a fun holiday cocktail. Be sure to grab them soon – these customer favorites will sell out before the New Year. Salute!
3. Heinen’s Cooking Spray Oils
A healthy cooking oil spray is the gift that keeps on giving, especially for friends who love to cook. Heinen’s offers a variety of spray oils including EVOO, Organic EVOO, Canola Oil, Avocado Oil, Ghee and EVOO with Garlic and Balsamic Vinegar, all produced in Italy. Whether you package them together (as one large host/hostess gift) or gift them individually, they’ll have your recipients cheering “Bravo!” upon opening.

Produced in Italy, our authentic balsamic glazes are the perfect stocking stuffer for the chef in your life. All three varieties are gluten free and can be drizzled over cooked meats, vegetables, salads or cheeses to add exquisite flavor.
