Women founders partner on Dayton-made holiday gift set

December 10, 2019

Four female founders have partnered on a 2020 Dayton-made holiday gift basket.

The Dayton Woman-Owned Business Gift Baskets include baking mixes & espresso salt from Mandy Groszko’s Ella Bella GF; coffee from Kait Brown’s Savorista; toffee from Sarah Thieben’s Sweet Nothings; and chocolate-covered coffee beans from Jen Larochelle-Starbuck’s Gourmet Berries.

Mandy had pulled together gift baskets in prior holiday seasons, but only featuring her own products, she recalled. This year, she decided to incorporate other products from local startups.

“I didn’t set out to do woman-owned businesses, but that’s who I’ve connected with at these events over the last year,” she sais. “There are lots of woman-owned businesses in Dayton, & that’s awesome. We’re really excited to have something local all together and be able to share with the community.”

The baskets are available for local pick-up only — order by Dec. 20 and pick up Dec. 16 or Dec. 23 between 2 & 7pm.
