Gypsy Souls’ 10 Favorite Christmas Gifts! #1 – We’re Nuts About You!

Merry Christmas to all you wonderful readers out there! I am sure you are all in the full swing of Christmas shopping, and I thought I would offer a little help! I will be posting 10 of my favorite Christmas gifts for 2012 for the next week or so with links for ordering. I have asked some of my most talented, creative and successful friends to contribute this year. Hope everyone enjoys!


First in line….”We’re Nuts About You!”

Contributor : Corrie Watson of Frank Kent Auto Dealerships . (Check out the Frank Kent website and see Corrie and her brother, Will, in an amazing video showcasing the history of Frank Kent).

I adore everything about this first gift idea for several reasons. #1) Its a home based business #2) Its a sweet treat! #3) Its a Texas based business #4) The sweet lady who owns this company put both herself and her boys through college on the money she made from her home based business!

Here is what Corrie has to say –

“Do you like Cinnamon? Brown Sugar? Nuts?  Then you are going to love We’re Nuts About You! It in my opinion has the tastiest treats around that are perfect to give as gifts for the Holiday season, serve over a salad, or just to curb that sweet tooth that kicks in every so often.  This little home based company was started by: Debbie Callas from Fort Worth.

Debbie is a single mom who was looking for a way to make some extra Christmas money to buy gifts for her 2 boys when she started this business venture out of her home.

Debbie makes all of her savory treats in her own home and uses only the freshest ingredients. You can have these flavored nuts in the form of Pecans, Walnuts, and the newest arrival Almonds.  The Almonds are my personal favorite just to eat by themselves, as I am doing while I am typing this up. There is Cinnamon, Brown Sugar, and I am not sure what else, but they are heavenly!

My husband loves when I put the Pecans in a Spinach Salad that has Feta, Strawberries, Spinach, and Balsamic Vinaigrette.  I have no doubt that they would also be tasty if they were warmed up a bit and then put over a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.

Debbie has a full time job, has gone back to school to complete her degree, and operates We’re Nuts About You in her free time. She has tirelessly worked to put herself and her 2 kids through college with the additional income from her home based business.  She makes these savory treats year round for birthday gifts, corporate thank yous, and just because people call her and have a craving.  Once you taste them, you will completely understand. You can truly taste the love and dedication she has to her family, her customers, and to ensuring that Wer’re Nuts About You nuts are only the best.


Her Holiday orders are already starting to roll in. The current pricing is per pound and does fluxuate based on market prices.  The Almonds are $8.00 per pound, Pecans are $15.00 per pound, and the Walnuts are $10.50/pound.  She will ship anywhere in the US, the prices do not include shipping. She can also ship them in decorative tins, to gift to your neighbors, or anyone else for the holidays for just the cost of the additional packaging.

Debbie can be reached at: or 817-583-9535.  She is currently developing her website, so keep a look out for that soon. ”

Debbie and her “little” boys! Isn’t she so pretty?

See? How great is that? Keep in mind, these are available year round. Being from Alabama, I have a weakness for Pecans, so those would definitely be my choice. What sounds good to you?


Hope you are having a great Holiday Season and your home is displaying a festive Gypsy Soul!


Happy Shopping!!!
