My holiday shopping relies heavily on local businesses, products and food. This year I am collaborating with Celina from Celina’s Biscochitos to put together a limited edition Holiday Care Package. This is our first year working together on a project like this. Test run. For folks who would prefer to buy a couple of specific items, rather than a large box of stuff, please see the Flavors of New Mexico page for a list of local specialty food providers who ship nationwide.

Holiday Care Package

There are two sizes: medium and large. There will be 150 medium boxes and 100 large boxes available. The medium box is fixed rate shipping ($19.95). The large is NOT fixed rate shipping when everything is in one box. The cost varies significantly based on where it is sent. I checked shipping rates for several markets, near and far. The variation was substantial. From $35-$40 for people nearby to almost $60 for the east coast, Alaska and Hawaii.

In an effort to keep the cost down, we are charging $40 flat rate on the larger box. We will ship everything in one box to zone one customers and we will ship two flat rate boxes to markets with exorbitant shipping rates. However, locals can pick up either size at Celina’s shop in Albuquerque to avoid shipping fees entirely, 404 Osuna Rd NW A, Los Ranchos De Albuquerque, NM 87107.

We are opening pre-ordering on October 15. There will be a 10% discount on pre-orders, which will further offset the cost associated with shipping. The boxes will be packed up and available for shipping on November 1 (for anyone who wants to send this before Christmas or to an APO). If you really need it to go out for November 1, we can accommodate that, but it will be the last week of October at the earliest based on gathering the inventory and packing up the first wave of boxes.

When ordering, PLEASE let us know when you want it to arrive so we don’t get it there too early or too late. You can also use the note field if you want to include a personal note to the person receiving the care package. We may sell out quite early (we don’t know), but we want to make sure that we ship it based on when it needs to arrive rather than when the order is placed.

What’s Inside?

These boxes are loaded, exploding into a bounty of New Mexico as the recipient unpacks it. I know this is the case, because it was challenging to get everything that is in the box into one picture.
