FOOD GIFTS & PRODUCTS
If you haven’t shopped at Gold Belly for gourmet food products, you are missing out. Give a three-month subscription and let your recipient choose the food delicacies of their choice. Here are two of my favorite food gift experiences to send this holiday. The Taste of New York Weekend Box comes with all of New York’s favorites: Gray’s Papaya hot dogs, pizza, NY- style cheesecake and bagels. Who wouldn’t love that? Or try a 2 lb. box of Ferrara’s Italian Cookies from NYC’s Little Italy.
Last minute gifts don’t have to be boring. They can be downright exciting. Give a virtual experience…something they can look forward to and maybe, something you can share together. How about Aphrodisiac Cooking for Two? Make dinner, dessert and drinks with your special person. Or maybe a Chocolate Tasting for two is more your speed. Select a date, sign up, and enjoy.
FOOD AND TRAVEL
Traveling is wonderful…new sites, smells, people and food! Getting to experience new places is a joy. Engaging with the locals and learning about their food, customs and traditions just makes it so much better. This year, gift food experiences to those traveling here in the states or abroad. Take a cooking class, join a family for brunch, lunch or dinner. Take a food tour, do a tasting, go on a picnic and explore the area through food. So many amazing experiences are available for you to gift this holiday season or to add to your own travel itinerary.
Check out Tapas and Live Flamenico Dancing in Chicago. Or maybe try a 4-Course Sicilian Lunch in Palermo, Italy. When in France, Learn How to Make French Desserts & Afternoon Tea in a Parisian Home. The choices are endless. Explore them all and give them the gift they won’t ever forget.
SMALL KITCHEN APPLIANCES
The caddy of espresso machines, this De ‘Longhi La Specialista Prestigio Espresso Machine is on sale and will save you 22%. For the coffee lover in your life, this is a prize!
KITCHEN POTS, PANS & BAKEWARE
It made Oprah’s list this year, and it has been on my wish list for a couple of years. Anyone who loves to bake will love LeCreuset’s Bread Oven. Another classic gift and one every home cook wants is a classic Dutch oven. The Christmas Red one with a gold knob is the perfect choice.
Purchasing a mandoline makes slicing vegetables really thin a breeze. This was the tool I used to make my Roasted Garlic Crispy Garlic Potatoes. Get it for anyone who loves to cook. Everyone should have a good meat thermometer. Fits perfecting in a stocking and will come in handy all year long.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and joyous Christmas.
