Little Things Count at Rumson Gifts

Variety is the spice of gift giving

If you picture a holiday basket as a tangle of cellophane concealing a mound of fruit loaves, this new by-appointment showroom is about to rock your wicker world.

Fill your basket with what giftees really want or let owner Catherine McGahan whip one up for the lucky recipient. Stumped? Take inspiration from our creations.

Southern Specialties
Belles and beaus thank y’all for local and regional favorites such as Betty’s classic cheese straws, Stonewall Kitchen raspberry peach champagne jam and red pepper jelly, Savannah Bee Company honey, and Charleston tea. Throw in an intoxicating lavender or jasmine Izola candle for extra hospitality.

Happy Hostess
Partying at her house during holiday season is a given. Make it easier on your Martha Stewart with an assortment of gourmet mustards, roasted tomato and basil crackers, black peppercorn salami, and aged cheddar and smoked Gouda spreads. A festive tea towel or Izola heirloom tomato candle completes the collection.


Euro Class
Impress your cultured pal with a (taste) trip around Europe in the form of artisan pasta, Tuscan extra virgin olive oil and black olive tapenade, French sea salts and sardines, biscotti, black truffle risotto, Caramels de France, and Petit Dejeuner coffee beans.

Sweetie Pie
Before your dessert devotee swears off sweets in January, give her one last hurrah with dark chocolate fondue (in a reusable jar), Belgian truffles, lavender candies, hot chocolate mix, Nashville Toffee Company treats, almond cookies, and Bahlsen chocolate-covered hazelnut wafers. You might want to throw in a gallon of milk (or Pepto-Bismol), too.

Just Add Booze
For your bartenders and boozehounds, mix one set of happy hour coasters with a stainless steel shaker and flask funnel, plus equal parts blue cheese-stuffed olives and mixed nuts.

Cheers to you.
