This year, I sent all of my Jewish Holiday Hostess Gifts from Negev Nectars. Negev Nectars helps subsidize Israeli farmers by promoting their delicious olive oils, jams, chutneys, Israeli tea, Sweet and Savory Spreads, and more. Packaged beautifully, there are several price ranges for every type of holiday gift that you’d like to send. My family especially loved the Cherry Tomato Spread, the Yellow pepper and Lemon Salsa, and the Green Olive Tapenade. Try them all!!!! Marlene
