2020 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies

 


The Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies is perfect for those who enjoy a good meal, glass of wine, or dessert. It's also great for those on your shopping list who seem to have everything.  If you have parents or grandparents who have downsized and prefer consumable gifts, this gift guide is also for them. 

Wine Insiders provides expertly curated wines from 40 crowd-pleasing varietals and 15 top wine regions. You'll noticed wines from different regions in the Flavorful Fall Mixed Half Case below. This is a fantastic gift! It is also nice to keep on hand for hostess gifts or holiday visitors.  We always love the wines that we receive from Wine Insiders. They source high quality and low priced wines, saving you from typical markups association with marketing, advertising, and store operations. Have you ever visited a grocery store wall of wine and wondered how to choose a bottle of wine with limited information? If you buy something that you dislike, you swallow the cost both literally and figuratively. Wine Insiders understands the dilemma. That's why they employee a team of experts and strive to offer 100% satisfaction.  They have 4.9 out of 5 stars on Google with over a thousand positive Google reviews. They also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee that you will love every bottle you try, and if you are not completely satisfied, they promise to make it right.  We recommend Wine Insiders for holiday gifts and parties. If you order 6+ bottles at a time, they offer free shipping with the wines delivered to your door or to a convenient pickup location. This is a fantastic holiday gift that comes with the 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Visit Wine Insiders!



Mingle Sparkling Mocktails provide non-alcoholic beverages that are perfect for the holiday season. These low calorie sparkling beverages are made with clean and natural botanical ingredients. They are vegan, kosher, and use non-GMO ingredients. These refreshing mocktails come in delicious varieties such as the Moscow Mule, Cucumber Melon Mojito, Blood Orange Elderflower, Cranberry Cosmo, and Blackberry Hibiscus Bellini.  They are easy to order on the Mingle Sparkling Mocktail website or Amazon. You'll also find them sparkling on shelves at over 1,000 retailers across the country. Click here for a store locator. If you are in Texas, look for them at SPECS.

Bear Creek Smokehouse is a family owned business in Texas that will help to make your holiday meals special.  They've been around since 1943 and have grown over the decades as Texans love their high quality foods. They offer a variety of meats, sauces, and desserts that are fantastic. I recommend the smoked turkey because this was the very first item that started their business success and is still one of their best sellers!  

This tender, boneless, all-white meat Smoked Turkey Breast is easy-to-slice and serve! Our Boneless Breasts are fully-cooked and ready to enjoy! Not only are they delicious when warm, but they are equally scrumptious when served at room temperature or even on a sandwich.

Eastern Standard Provisions Co. is a brand that you may already recognize after it was featured on Oprah's list of favorite things last year. It's a unique and delicious gift that stands out this holiday season. The gift boxes contain artisanal soft pretzels and gourmet salts that are delicious. My entire family circles around when I pull them out of the oven on a cold winter evening.


Their All You Knead is Love gift box is generously packed with (4) Wheelhouse signature soft pretzels, (6) Turnbuckle soft pretzel sticks, (2) FourSeam pretzel buns, (1) bag of Pretzel Bites, (1) White Truffle salt pack, (1) Everything Spice pack, (1) Chili Lime salt pack, (1) Lemon Rosemary salt pack, (1) Classic pretzel salt pack, and (1) "All You Knead is Love" sticker on the outside of the box. The chefs behind this box are perfectionists who pay careful attention to every detail. The flavors are so unique. Plus, the generous size of the box makes this a fun gift for families to enjoy together. You'll want to place your order early to ensure that this gift doesn't sell out. You are able to store the pretzels in the freezer if needed.

Slammer's superfood snacks offer healthy gourmet pouches for your tiniest foodies. They are fun to place into stockings or hang on a tree. My children love the taste, but there are a few other reasons that we love them too. This brand uses high quality ingredients and many of the varieties are packed with protein and nutrients. Another reason is that the pouches are not messy.  If you have children with large age gaps, your little ones will feel included in the excitement of pulling snacks out of their stocking when they see Slammer's pouches.  Of course, if your children are like mine, even older children will request for you to include Slammer's in their stockings because it's a happy tradition and treat that they don't want to outgrow!


Bake Me a Wish offers perfection when it comes to holiday baked goods. If you watch Shark Tank, Robert Herjavec is a successful investor with high expectations. It was fun to learn that he loves Bake Me a Wish so much that he is using this company for holiday gifting!  He is a wealthy celebrity who seems to have it all, so I enjoyed learning that some of the lucky people on his holiday list will receive Bake Me a Wish gifts from him.  He commented that he likes to maintain relationships despite the virtual world that we currently live in with COVID-19. I agree with him and think that people who are in quarantine will appreciate gifts more than ever. Personally, we love gifts from Bake Me a Wish because they are perfectionists! Their special treats are nice for families to enjoy together.  Bake Me a Wish uses amazing recipes and premium ingredients to make their crave-worthy baked goods. They neatly package each item so that your recipient feels special when they open it.  Check out their holiday offerings here.


Laconiko is an award winning brand that offers top quality olive oils. This family owned business is a multi-generational operation from a family that cultivated 5,000+ olive trees in Greece. I loved reading that the father referred to the olive trees as his other children because he truly nurtured his orchard of olive trees. I also love that his children expanded the business with the creation of their award winning olive oils that are now sold in the U.S. Their olive oils truly are exceptional and deserving of awards.  We recommend the Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Black Truffle Olive Oil for holiday gifts. Good olive oil makes a big difference in recipes, so this is a gift that will continue to give as gift recipients use the award winning olive oil in many meals.


Sugarpova is a trendy brand that you may have seen featured by Food Network, U.S. Weekly, Rachel Ray In Season, or on Shark Tank. This brand was created by the multi-talented Maria Sharapova who is a perfectionist when it comes to her line of confections. I first became aware of this brand when my husband went on a business trip and brought me a gift home - the Milk Chocolate Covered Gummy Lips! As soon as I tried them, I knew that I had to feature this brand in our holiday gift guide. Sugarpova was designed to provide a much-deserved piece of indulgence. Their chocolates contain antioxidants. The gummies and truffles are made with real fruit flavors and vegetable extracts. They do not contain artificial flavoring. Sugarpova confections are perfect little treats for those who want to indulge in moderation.  My favorite is the Milk Chocolate Covered Gummy Lips. It's a combination that you may not expect, but somehow the gummy candy and chocolate complement each other in a unique way that is delicious. My son argues that the Pink Grapefruit Gummy Lips are the best. I think that there is merit to either argument because they are both amazing! Their truffles are also delicious. While I love them as gifts for moms, I also love the 50-count boxes because they are easy to divide into little gift bags for teachers or stocking stuffers. 


The Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Truffles are smooth and delicious. The Dark Chocolate Mocha Truffles are smooth and silky. This is a brand that is sure to be popular this holiday season!


zak Designs offers festive barware in metallic colors with reflective surface designs that foodies will love.  The whimsical designs are a modernized version of the popular metallic style of glasses that I used in my childhood. The zak Fractal Barware is available in light gold, rose gold, and copper. The insulated stainless steel design is great for hot or cold drinks. I use one for cold drinks while my husband loves his for warm coffee. They are available in different shapes and sizes that you will find here.


Unprecedented Thyme is an earthy, complex, dynamic blend of the highest quality herbs and spices—thyme, sumac, coriander, turmeric, Himalayan sea salt, cayenne pepper & cinnamon—unite (imagine that!) for a divinely aromatic all-purpose rub to take your recipes to unprecedented new heights. Wrapped in “beam me up, Scotty”-themed packaging that perfectly captures the…thymes, this certified kosher spice blend cannot physically beam you to another planet, but it does promise to make your roast chicken, stews, and marinades taste out of this world. 

We hope that you enjoyed this glimpse into our favorite holiday gifts for foodies!
