Providing unique and thoughtful gifts for loved ones and reformed frenemies since 1951, the nearly 60-year-old Sphinx Ranch Gourmet Gift Market has been family run for three generations. The selection of gourmet goods puts a spotlight on treats locally made in Arizona, including such diverse items as bulk Medjool dates (starting at $8.95 a pound), Arizona mesquite honey ($6.25 for a one-pound jar), and the butter peanut-brittle royal-red gift box ($12). Featuring the best of the store's selection, the Sphinx Ranch Gourmet Gift Market's gift baskets will mend all the wounds caused by an outburst at the last company potato-sack-race outing. For gifts to those outside of Arizona, the available in-store shipping center will take that gift off your hands and ship it anywhere throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Middle Earth (this Groupon cannot be used toward shipping).
Scottsdale residents refer to the Sphinx Ranch Gourmet Gift Market as the Date Ranch, thanks in part to the delightful date milkshakes. The Sphinx Ranch also carries an ever-growing selection of Arizona-grown wines, offering white, red, and rosé varieties. The giftery's assortment of gourmet goodies is the last, best opportunity to make things up to a friend whose only gifts for the past 10 years have been socks, underwear, and pizza-flavored Combos.
This Groupon is only valid for in-store purchases and cannot be used toward shipping.
Five Yelpers give the Sphinx Ranch Gourmet Gift Market five stars, and Yahoo! Local reviewers give it 4.5 stars. Dates are a specialty of the store, and you can take a look at what the Phoenix New Times and LocalHarvest are saying about these delicious fruits from the Sphinx Ranch:
- Dates can be incredibly sweet and fleshy and this is what the shake was like. It was sweet, had lots of date chunks and skins in it, and was oddly addictive swirled with vanilla ice cream. There was also just the faintest taste of cocoa. If you'd like to try one and aren't planning a trip to Yuma, you can get one locally in Scottsdale at the Sphinx Ranch open since 1951... – Sativa Peterson, Phoenix New Times
- Sphinx Ranch, which was named one of "Arizona's Top Food Suppliers" in 2009, prides itself in its unique gift offerings, which are comprised of local products native to the state of Arizona: dates, fruits, nuts, coffee, honey, jams and jellies, salsa, beer, and wine. – LocalHarvest
- Let me just say that Sphinx is AWESOME!!! If you are looking for a gift that encompasses the essence of Arizona, Sphinx is the place to go. With an inventory derived from flavors of the state, you are sure to find something for everyone: Medjool dates, fresh & dried fruit, nuts, salsas, coffee, honey, jams & jellies. – Ronnie V, Yahoo!
