The list of “Our Favorite Things” is here. We walked every inch of Mister Ed’s and agreed on 10 of our most popular, most awesome, most unique gifts for the holiday season. You know how hard that was, right? We have an ever-changing inventory of really cool stuff.
I know what you’re thinking. Okay, we have a list of fantastic finds. Big whoop. What are we supposed to do with that, Nicole? The answer: check out our one-day sale on Small Business Saturday.
We’re offering 20% off our favorite things from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday, November 30.
The items on our favorites list never go on sale…ever. It’s not the picked-over, end-of-season stuff. It’s the just in, hot right now stuff. The best part is, with the sale, everything on the list is under $18.
Without further ado, here are our favorite things.
Local Jams and Jellies: 3.99 each or 3 for $9.99 (in a bag with bow)
Gettysburg resident and locavore Kathy Glahn makes the best small batch jams and jellies in the most creative flavors in her commercial kitchen. We’re obsessed with her Pina Colada Jam, made with fresh pineapple and coconut. She even crafted a flavor just for us: Cotton Candy Jelly. Her goal is to use as many local flavors as possible, like figs, beauty berries and kiwi berries from her own farm. Or peaches and cherries from nearby orchards. Try just one or make a gift pack of three.
Penn State Ornaments: $14.99 | We are…Penn State! As Penn State alumni, we couldn’t help but put beautiful glass ornaments from Old World Christmas on our list of favorite things. We love this ornament brand, because being hand-crafted and glass blown, they add a festive sparkle to our trees.
Candy Filled Christmas Mugs: $9.99-$11.99 | Sometimes you need a little something for your teacher, preacher, neighbor, mailman, party host, co-worker, friend or dog roomer. We’ve got a huge selection of mugs you can fill with whatever kind of loose candy you’d like. You pick it out and fill it, we’ll make it look pretty with some clear wrap and a bow.
Mister Ed’s T-Shirts: $12-$15 | Our t-shirts are hot sellers and a great gift for anyone who’s ever visited (or dreams of visiting) Mister Ed’s. We have sizes 2T through 3XL in a variety of styles and colors. Plus, each shirt is a limited edition. To keep things fresh, we retire between two and four styles each year, with new designs coming out each July.
Animal Sherpa Socks: $19.99 | We’re obsessed with these cute, cozy slipper socks. Luxuriously soft on the inside, with grips on the bottom, you’ll wear these all winter long.
Cotton Candy: $4.99 | Funky flavored cotton candy is an exploding trend that will make you the most popular gift giver this year. Whether you’ve got a root beer fan or a mimosa aficionado, this cotton candy is true to flavor, and more importantly, delicious. We even tried the pickle flavor and found it edible. Whether a gag gift for a family member or sweet gift for the foodie in your life, these things are awesome!
Christmas Signs: $6.99-$8.99 | Deck your halls with these rustic signs of the season. They’d make a perfect addition to the packaging of an already wrapped gift to share your festive sentiments.
Jelly Belly Gifts: $1.99-$21.99 | Jelly bean lovers, rejoice! Every Jelly Belly gift item in the store will be on sale for one day only. That’s everything from bean dispensers to gift boxes to Beanboozled to chocolate Harry Potter wands. Stock up because this won’t happen again. Excludes bulk.
Christmas Candy: $1.99-$12.99 | Your favorite Christmas candies from yesteryear to today make the list. Everything from coal candy to ribbon candy to chocolate straws and holiday gummies.
Dammit Dolls: $13.99 | Betty White has some, so you should too. Stressed out? Whack a Dammit Doll, feel better! The cute dolls are designed to be slammed against a hard surface to relieve aggression. Dammit Dolls are great gag gifts for coworkers and friends.
But that’s not all. You can also raid our clearance bins and take an additional 20% off the lowest ticketed price on those treasures, including candy and gifts. We’ll also feature our famous Camouflage Fudge (chocolate, vanilla and peanut butter) to celebrate the day as not only Small Business Saturday, but also the first day of deer season, a holiday in and of itself in Pennsylvania.
Mister Ed’s granddaughter, Nicole, is the co-owner of Mister Ed’s, along with her husband Isaac. Though the pair purchased the business from her grandparents in 2014, Nicole has been selling peanuts since before she could see over the counter. She spent more than a decade working in communications before she decided to live the “sweet life,” so it’s only natural she’s the creative mind behind Mister Ed’s, including all the marketing efforts, events and retail displays. Nicole also lends a hand in the fudge kitchen when needed. She loves being mom to her and Isaac’s energetic toddler son, Larkin, who has quite a sweet tooth (unlike mom). Nicole sneaks handfuls of fresh roasted jumbo peanuts and loves Salted Nut Roll fudge.
