There are two things I love: Christmas and local Small Businesses. As I made my Christmas list this year, I started thinking “is it possible to mostly shop small this Christmas?” I decided…challenge accepted! There are a few local places that I have found have the perfect gifts to give here in Baton Rouge.
Season to Taste (@seasontotastebr – Instagram)
Season to Taste is a local, family-owned business that has a variety of Olive Oils, Vinegar, Coffee, Teas, and various locally made gifts. My favorite flavor of olive oil is Wild Mushroom & Sage – this is a GAME CHANGER for all your egg needs, seriously try scrambled eggs in this oil & you will never go back! A favorite of my husband is Cilantro & Roasted onion, we use this on all veggies.
Our teachers this year are getting their sample set – They are $30.00 and come with a sample of four different oils. You can customize it or ask the nice staff at Season to Taste to pick their favorites! There are a lot of other options for gift sets. I love that this gift is consumable & will not add to a clutter-filled Christmas!

CounterspaceBR is a local bakery that has a variety of sweet treats and is known for its unique salted chocolate chip cookies (Try them, you will not regret it). This season, they have launched a Cookie Subscription Box! You can give the gift of Cookies year around! You choose from one month, three months, or six-month subscription. Each gift box will include 6 of their top-selling Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies and 6 seasonal cookies that are a subscription exclusive flavor!
These subscription boxes start at $33.00. There are a few out-of-town family members I am planning on sending cookies to, everyone loves a little happy delivered to their door!
Mountain Pure CBD (@mountainpurecbd – Instagram)
Mountain Pure CBD is a locally owned therapeutic CBD product line. Mountain Pure produces Broad-Spectrum tinctures and an extensive line of CBD capsules, topicals, bath and pet products designed to enhance the wellness of its consumers. I recently tried Mountain Pure CBD’s Revive Bath Bombs. Y’all, every single person needs to experience the relaxation that comes from these bath bombs. You know that post-massage relaxed feeling? These bath bombs are those at home!
The Revive Bath Bombs are $10.00 each and come in two different scents. I am giving these to a few mama friends that I know need a little relaxation in their lives.
There are so many great small businesses in the Red Stick these are just the three I am shopping at this season. I hope you all support local this holiday season!
