Last year we compiled a full gift guide. This year we want to break it down and make finding gifts in a specific category from military business owners easier.

Selecting the right gift can be challenging at times. That said, there is nothing like giving someone a good basket of treats, savory goods, or drinks to ring in the New Year with. We’ve compiled great gift ideas from Vet/Milspouse owned businesses as well as brands who offer Military discounts or support military organizations through charitable initiatives.

This week we are starting with food and drink products.

Heroes Vodka-I had the chance to try this smooth spirit at the Military Influencer’s Conference this past October. While I am not a heavy drinker, I definitely found it to be smooth and great for mixing. This brand was started by a US Marine Vet and every purchase helps to support a military organization. It’s bottled right here in the USA and 100% American Grain. Available in 21 states.

Purple Heart Red Wine– Sourced in the Napa Valley this wine is made with a salute in mind. Every purchase helps Purple Heart Wine donate a generous portion of their proceeds to the Purple Heart Foundation. $19.99

Fire Dept. Coffee- has the perfect coffee and mugs for the coffee lover in your household. Fire Dept. Coffee is a veteran and firefighter owned brand dedicated to helping their community through roasted-to-order, high-caffeine coffees and by giving back to firefighter and veteran assistance programs. Enjoy roasts flavors like Limited Edition Christmas or a night cap with their Spirit Infused Roast. Prices start at $10.35 and up.

Hickory Farms- Send a soldier or overseas family a care package or gift box from Hickory Farms APO/FPO collection. Enjoy savory meats, cheeses and snacks packaged perfectly for shipping and receive FREE shipping when you send a package to an APO or FPO location.

The Rosie Co- This milspouse run lifestyle brand has a variety of dainty, fun and unique gifts to give someone. Their loose leaf teas by Pinky Up comes in amazing flavors. My fav is Confetti Cake, but create a relaxing gift basket by giving one of each. Military receive 10% of their orders by using code mil10. Orders TODAY ONLY free shipping using code FREESHIP.

My Grandma’s of New England Coffee Cake- My husband put m onto these cakes years ago. He said they would get donated down range. One year we brought one from the commissary and OMG! They are super buttery and moist! Military receive reduced shipping costs to APO/FPO for only $2 with their Salute A Soldier program.

Stocking Stuffer Idea:

Mutt’s Sauce-I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention an amazing sauce I had the chance to try at the Military Influencer’s conference. Mutt’s Sauce is a Vet owned company created from the recipe left behind by Air Force Vet Charlynda Scales grandfather (also a vet). It’s an amazing stocking stuffer from the grill master in your household and great for any meat!
