Don’t let the holidays stress you out. Make it easy on yourself and be a holiday hero with a stop at one (or all) of these shops!

Meat-ing of the minds

Serve a plate full of savory goodness with a quick stop at Old Hoosier Meats in Middlebury for an unbelievable selection of deli meats and the cheeses, crackers and dips to create perfect hors d’oeuvres. (Hint: If you order ahead, you can cross appetizers off your cooking list!



Box full of goodness

You can never have too much chocolate, right? That especially applies to the holidays. Bring an assortment of hand-dipped chocolates from Veni’s Sweet Shop in Nappanee that will have everyone wondering if you had them shipped in from Belgium.


Wine & dine

From its 2 acres of vineyards, Fruit Hills Winery & Orchard in Bristol produces a tremendous variety of wines. For the perfect bottle - whether you need a dry red, a crisp white or something sweeter - you can be confident that Fruit Hills will be a crowd-pleaser.

Something stronger

Sometimes you just need a cold one, and it’s easy to bring some locally brewed greatness. You can fill up a growler (or a smaller crowler) at Iechyd Da Brewing Co. in Elkhart and Goshen Brewing Co. It’s going to be a hoppy new year after all!
