Looking for that perfect Christmas gift for a loved one in the north hunkered down for winter? Or maybe you’re looking for the perfect gift for a Floridian who loves everything about the Sunshine State. Well you’re in luck, many Florida retailers have many unique gift ideas from Chocolate Alligators to Key Lime Pie for online shoppers to choose from. But don’t get mad at me when Aunt Rose gets jealous as she opens a box of Florida Citrus while she shivers in Michigan.

Indian River Gift Fruit

Hale Indian River Groves – Located in Wabasso, FL, Hale is well known as the premier gift fruit retailer, I’ve enjoyed their OJ for years and shop there often. halegroves.com
