Our Story

As a small, family-run business, Christy’s Gourmet Gifts prides itself on creating delectable sweets that remind you of home. All of their products are lovingly created from old family recipes using the finest Belgian chocolate and pure butter. The company was first started in 2002 by Christy who turned her life-long passion for baking into a business. Not only did she love baking, Christy loved how “giving” a sweet treat to others would bring them joy and happiness.

This combination of baking and giving is what makes Christy’s Gourmet Gifts unique from other local bake shops.

In 2010, joined by her husband Bernie and Mother Diane, Christy opened Burlington Ontario’s first bakery specializing in gourmet gifts.

Their mission is simple; create gourmet gifts that will bring joy and happiness to all.

There is always something exciting going on at Christy’s Gourmet Gifts. Whether it is trade shows (such as the One of a Kind Show), dance recitals, charity events or just the buzz around the holidays, the bake shop is constantly a flurry of activity. New recipes are always being developed, the aroma of fresh baked Christy’s Crunch fills the air and Bernie is constantly in the kitchen baking sweet treats. Despite all the chaos, there is no place the family would rather be!

What sweet times await you at Christy’s Gourmet Gifts! The retail shop is elegantly decorated by Christy for each season – a feast for the eyes (as well as the nose and mouth). A wide range of chocolate gifts can be found including: Their famous chocolate toffee butter crunch, chocolate-dipped cookies, retro Sponge Toffee candy, beer brittles, wine toffees, marshmallows and more. Samples are always available.

From the renowned Christy’s Crunch to gourmet cookie bouquets, Christy’s sweets make perfect gifts for any corporate or personal needs.

Christy’s Gourmet Gifts is a real family affair! Each family member plays their part, however small. Christy’s skill set lies in the creation of anything new. She and Bernie work together to invent new products, while she comes up with new and exciting ways to beautify and market the business. Bernie, a trained chocolatier, does all the baking in the shop. (It’s a good thing, too! The copper kettle used to handcraft the toffees and brittles weights about 30 pounds and holds up to 60 pounds of candy. They need Bernie’s muscles!) Christy’s mom, Diane, is the organizer and shares her keen style sense to perfect Christy’s Gourmet Gifts’ packaging; No one can tie a bow better than Diane! Christy’s father, Brian, helps build all of Christy’s trade show booths (What a feat! Christy comes up with some wild design ideas). Christy’s daughters, Jordy and Aydann, are all to happy to be put to work as taste testers. Christy attributes much of her success to her 98 year old Grandmother who she fondly calls Nanny. Nanny was also the creator of the family’s now famous Christy’s Crunch. Today the Crunch is the most popular product at Christy’s.
