Rue Farms owners Jeanne and Matt Rue use only local, non-GMO russet potatoes for their kettle-cooked potato chips. The delicious result is golden brown chips that are more crunchy than crispy and come in palate-pleasing flavors like Dill Herb, Back Woods BBQ, and Apple Cider Vinegar. 937-717-6707;

Her company’s name may give a nod to a historic local bridge, but Lorraine Walker brings coffee beans from around the world to her Gallipolis roasting facility. Smooth-tasting Buckeye Breakfast Buzz, Pumpkin Spice Blend, or Snow Angel, a Yuletide offering with hints of coconut, caramel, hazelnut, and vanilla, fit nicely in any coffee-lover’s stocking. 740-709-1610;



Timothy Michael Kelly transforms slate reclaimed from barns and historic building into rustically beautiful trays and hot plates for serving bread, displaying fruit, holding hot casseroles, and protecting surfaces. Bonus: Kelly engraves each piece with the date of the structure where the slate was originally used. 614-887-7107;

Owner Carolina Martin crafts hand-dipped chocolate truffles using liquors (for adults) and fruit juices (for kids). The Bom’s Peppermint Schnapps truffles fly off the shelves at Christmas, and Martin’s truffle-making parties make for fun —­and effortless — holiday get-togethers. Just bring friends and your favorite spirit. 216-941-7643;
