10 best grandparent gifts for the holidays from small businesses: The delicious, gorgeously packaged holiday tea sets from Vahdam

Custom grandparent mugs with Gourmet holiday tea set

We are obsessed with the incredible teas from Vahdam, and their entire holiday tea gift box selection . Once you’ve tried them, it’s hard to go back to the stuff on the supermarket shelves. The only thing better is if Grandma and Grandpa (or Mimi and Papa) drink theirs in entirely custom mugs handmade by a small business in Bloomsburg, PA. 

Mugs $15/3 at McG Crafts Store (free ship on orders over $35)
Tea Set $34.99, Vahdam Teas
