The 109-year-old Robb Family Farm in Brattleboro says it's seen a 60 percent jump in sales since the actress listed the syrup among her 12 best holiday gifts for women. Her list was published in People Magazine's holiday gift guide last month.

Shields told the magazine: "We go through a lot of maple syrup in our house."

Shields' list includes the $14.95 pint-sized tin of syrup, a skincare travel set, a scarf, a necklace, a book, pens and $100 Hermes playing cards.

The Robb family thanks Shields and says it hopes it has enough syrup to get through the holiday season.
