3 gift ideas for the food-lovers on your holiday shopping list

The holiday season is upon us and for many families, it’s the busiest time of the year. It can be hard to choose something special for some of the more challenging people on your list, whether it’s your in-laws, the friend who has everything or that client you want to impress. Knowing this, the Olliffe team has put together three excellent local gift ideas that are perfect for the holiday season. If you have any questions or would like some help placing your order, please contact us! You can reach us by phone or email, and you’re welcome to stop by our Yonge Street butcher shop to place your order in person.

A fine dining treat

Olliffe is pleased to offer a number of exceptional products in our fine dining collection. If you’re looking for a gift for someone who appreciates the best of the very best, this is the place to start. Our butchers would be pleased to help you curate a selection of items or choose one that’s ideal for your gift recipient. We also have an excellent selection of fine cheeses, artisan-made condiments, spice blends and other accoutrements to complement this type of gift.

An exceptional Ontario beef steak

When shopping for someone who is passionate about cooking or truly appreciates an exceptional cut of Ontario beef, we recommend one of our incredible steaks. Options include our Blue Ribbon bone-in rib steak, a delectable prime rib steak, a prime porterhouse steak or T-bone, a Snake River wagyu rib eye, or our legendary Ontario beef tomahawk. You may also want to consider our holiday gift bundle or a charcuterie box, which makes an ideal hostess gift. Our butchers would be pleased to make personalized recommendations, so please don’t hesitate to ask.

A gift card to Olliffe

For those difficult-to-buy-for friends and relatives, we recommend a gift card to Olliffe (available in store). It’s a generous gift that allows the recipient to treat themself to whatever they’d like, be it a beautiful roast or a selection of delicious homestyle prepared foods. You can even give family members an Olliffe gift card ahead of the holidays so they can use it to cover the cost of Christmas dinner. Consider packaging one of our gift cards with a bar of Country Girls handmade beef tallow soap for a beautiful, thoughtful holiday offering. These items also make excellent stocking stuffers or teacher gifts!

Thanks as always for shopping local and supporting our family-owned and operated business this holiday season. If you’d like to place an order for a fresh local turkey, prime rib roast, pork roast or other holiday favourites, please contact us. Our team would be glad to assist you.
