Four Favorite Food Gifts You’ll Want to Give (and Get!)
What do you give the person who has everything? Food!
Food gifts are a great way to connect with loved ones. They are easy to order and ship, it’s impossible to to get the wrong size, and, as long as your recipient doesn’t have an allergy you don’t know about, your food gifts is bound to be well received.
Here are four of our brand new favorite gourmet food gifts, available now and for the gift giving season to come:
1. Personalized Petit Fours. This gift idea, which I originally spotted in O Magazine, is one of my new favorites. These tiny glazed cakes come from Duane Park Patisserie, a fabulous little bakery that will actually monogram your petits fours with your recipient’s initials.
Visit the website and design your own sweet little cakes by choosing from 9 different colors (plus edible silver, pearl, and gold finishes), 4 different shapes, and 6 different designs. This is an elegant and thoughtful gift not only for a hostess but also Mother’s Day, a baby shower, a bridal shower, a friend’s birthday, or a sweet “I’m thinking of you” holiday treat.
2. Harry and David’s Original Baklava. This is, hands down, the best baklava I’ve ever tasted. We order it every year for a Christmas Day treat. It’s made from no fewer than sixty flaky layers of phyllo dough, making it melt-in-your-mouth delicious…perfect buttery bites of honey-laden goodness.
At an affordable price of $20 per box (or 2 for $30), you can order a few in time for the holiday season, so you always have something delectable to take along to those surprise holiday parties.
3. Julia Baker Artisanal Chocolates. These come from Chocolate.com, where it’s pretty hard to find any gift that wouldn’t be appreciated and devoured. But these are especially, well, special.Continued on the next page
