A Gift for Every Dad

What type of dad is yours? Some dads enjoy standing over a grill and creating the perfect smoked brisket, some love hiking with the family, while others enjoy snacks and soda during the game.

But what dad doesn’t like organic, non-GMO, 100% dry-roasted nuts to snack on or add to a favorite recipe? Paired with items like seasonings, sauces, and chocolates, Maisie Jane’s California Sunshine has a Father’s Day Basket for every dad type.

For the Spice It Up & Eat-A Fajita Dad

With Maisie Jane’s Fajita basket, your dad or husband can whip up an amazing fajita dinner. Whether he likes to grill beef or sauté chicken before layering his fajita, this basket has everything he needs plus a little dessert just for him! Just like those mostly authentic (wink) Mexican restaurants, dad can serve his fajitas in style with the cast iron skillet and wood trivet. This gift also includes an over mitt, Chico Spice Co. Meat flavored seasoning, Cowboy BBQ Corn Salsa, and Better than Brittle soft peanut brittle for dessert.
