Hello, darlings! Today I want to do something a little different and share a 2018 Foodie Holiday Gift Guide. A little different from a typical gift guide, I want to feature products I like, mostly from smaller makers. There are a few items from larger stores because I think they make great gifts, but not many.
With all the shopping frenzy about “deals” at the end of the week, it can be easy to overlook the little shops. But there are some seriously great gift ideas out there made by passionpreneurs! I believe food brings people together, and this blog is a little part of the food community, so let’s share the community spirit and support each other.
Happy start to the holiday season, darlings! <3
Find your Zin Necklace – These necklaces are so pretty and come with their own card and envelope! This particular design is a perfect present for your favorite wine-loving fashionista.
Nordic Ware Jubilee Gold Bundt® Pan – I’ve just been in love with bundt pans forever. They’re beautiful, and the quality and designs on the Nordicware pans is excellent. You can usually find a great deal during holiday sales with free shipping too. This pan is one of my personal favorites and you can see it in action here.
Gracious Leigh Gifts – Custom Tea Towel – Such a lovely “First Christmas” gift idea for newlyweds, or those who just feel like newlyweds.
Homespun Seasonal Living DIY Guide to Jams and Jellies – This would make a great stocking stuffer for homemade jam lovers!
40 Days of Green Smoothies Cookbook – Help the recipient jump-start resolutions with a cookbook from Becky at Glue and Glitter. The book includes recipes and features like a weekly shopping list.
Wine vacuum sealer with stoppers – We purchased one of these on the recommendation of a wine maker friend years ago. It’s one of the best little purchases because an open bottle of wine stays drinkable for several days. Definitely a must-have because it’s very practical.
Sugarfina Pop the Champagne Gift Set – Such a sweet set for the most effervescent person on your list. 😉
**The following ideas are links only until I have permission from the shop owners to use a photo. I think these items look like really lovely gifts!**
Gourmet Salt Sampler – Salt adds flavor to food, but did you know different salts have different flavors? Your foodie friend does. 😉 A sampler kit like this one would be fun for the person who spends time in the kitchen.
Hot Chocolate Sampler – Do I really need to explain this one? Such a perfect gift for chilly winter nights!
Of course, the best gifts are always the intangibles… love, time, good conversation. So whether you buy or make something to gift, be sure to pair it with something that can’t be wrapped and means so much more.
