I can’t believe it’s time for another gift guide! I’ve rounded up some of my best gourmet-themed gift ideas for this holiday season and am excited to share my picks with you. I’ve tried to keep things more on the “budget” side this year, with gifts you can mix, match, and combine if you like. Hope you enjoy!
Handmade Ceramic Splatter Spoon Rest
Can’t you imagine resting a soup ladle on this beautiful ceramic piece in between serving up bowls of a cozy and festive stew?
Of course your friends and family would love a persimmon hanging from their Christmas tree!
Wine Food: New adventures in drinking and cooking
I LOVE this cookbook, which has recommended pairings for each recipe, with suggestions for specific wines to seek out. The recipes are great, and the wines range from the “standards” to the more obscure, making for some fun searches!
Juniper Ridge Douglas Fir Spring Tip Tea
This very special tea tastes just like Christmas.
Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange
A dark chocolate version of the classic chocolate orange. Stuff this into a stocking or combine with Douglass Fir tea and pandoro or home-baked cookies for a gourmet-themed gift box.
Try the World Subscription Food Box
This subscription box includes foods from a different country each month. Much cheaper than a plane ticket!
If you’re looking beyond panetonne for this year, you might want to expand to pandoro, another traditional Italian holiday sweet bread, in the shape of a tall star. Very impressive!
Jadeite Mixing Bowls
Functional and beautiful. It’s a win-win!
Winter Wonderland Cocktail Napkins
Gorgeous cloth cocktail napkins to elevate your eggnog or glee wine.
Heart Waffle Maker
A similar heart waffle was on our wedding registry, and it’s one of our favorite gifts. I use it to make Norwegian Heart Waffles, and it makes weekends wonderful!
