Wendy’s #ChooseWomen Holiday Gift List:
“We are a unique dessert company that designs gourmet truffles. We create our products from organic chocolate, imported from Ghana, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Our chocolate is stone-ground using Molinos. The minimal processing preserves its rich, bold flavors, and gives it a more gritty, natural texture. Also, we buy direct trade, which ensures that the small farms that produce our chocolate receive the payment they deserve.”
2)Jiggy Puzzles; $29 PER MONTH
As the days grow darker, we’ll be spending an increasing amount of time in our homes and will need activities to keep us busy. Jiggy Puzzles is a Shark Tank-approved brand that was created in 2019 by Kaylin Marcotte, who used puzzles to relax after working at a stressful start-up during the day. The company offers monthly, bi-monthly, and quarterly subscription boxes featuring a new puzzle designed by up-and-coming artists that could entertain your friend all year long.
