Trying to find that perfect gift can be so elfin difficult. You never know exactly what someone might want, if they already have it, or if the present that took so much time to select will wind up in the person’s recycled gifts bin. But the one gift that you can never go wrong with is food. Think about it: everyone likes to eat, after all. So if you’re thinking about giving a gift to a friend, family member, or even your child’s teacher, these holiday food gifts are absolutely delish.
Harry & David Gnome Cookie Jar with Cookies
There’s definitely no place like gnome when you share the Gnome Cookie Jar with Cookies with someone special. In addition to getting 14 raspberry-filled shortbread cookies that feature a tree cutout, you’ll also get a holiday gnome cookie jar, too. While the cookies might not last too long, the cookie jar can become a beloved part of your holiday celebrations for years to come.
Justin’s Super Dark Chocolate Espresso Almond Butter Cups
When you want to stick a sweet snack into your child’s stocking (but want to keep away from candy canes), opt for the better-for-you Super Dark Chocolate Espresso Almond Butter Cups from Justin’s. The organic cups are made with all natural ingredients and are comprised of 80% cacao. And because they’re healthier, you just might not mind if your child nibbles on them while opening their presents.
eCreamery 12 Days of Ice Cream Collection
You’ll need something sweet to enjoy while your family is singing “The 12 Days of Christmas”, and eCreamery has you covered. The 12 Days of Ice Cream ($129.99) contains a whopping 12 pints of holiday goodness, from kid-friendly flavors like Frosted Sugar Cookie and Chocolate Cake to Cupcake Cookie Dough and Cookie Crunch. Parent-approved flavors include Peppermint Mocha, Sea Salt Caramel Brownie, and (wait for it), Gingerbread Cheesecake. Each pint of ice cream is more decadent than the next, which will give you the stamina to sing about French hens, turtle doves, and partridges in a pear tree.
SusieCakes Chocolate Candy Cane Cake
Of course, candy canes are the official confection of the season. And the SusieCakes Chocolate Candy Cane Cake is covered in them. Perfect for serving on Christmas Day, the cake has four layers of chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and crushed candy canes. The outside of the cake is slathered with mint buttercream and red and white sanding sugar, making it the most festive (and cutest) treat on your holiday table. You can choose to have an inscription on the cake (choose from “Happy Holidays!” or “Merry Christmas!”) or opt to leave it blank, since the cake is so cute all on its own.
Graeter’s Pumpkin Ice Cream
Sure, it might be the most wonderful time of the year, but you might still pine for all those pumpkin spice treats you enjoyed just a few weeks ago. You can enjoy it all again with the Pumpkin Ice Cream from Graeter’s. You can create your own gift pack on the site which offers 6 pints for $79.95. In addition to some yummy fall flavors, you can get the scoop on some seasonal sensations like eggnog, peppermint stick, and swoon, cinnamon.
Klimon Frozen Desserts
You won’t taste the non-dairy difference when you sample some of the fun flavors from Klimon. The brand has five almond-based treats that will make you swear that you’re eating milk-based ice cream — but you’re not. Start your day with a scoop of Morning Brew, or satisfy your craving for mint chocolate chip with Mint Condition. Cherry Bomb is, well, the bomb, and Caramel Brulée hits all the right taste bud notes. And you’ll swear that you’re eating an actual orangesicle when you savor Sunrise Bang — and every pint is completely dairy-free.
Sugar Bowl Bakery Peppermint Duet Bites
Sometimes you feel like having a bite of a brownie, and other times, you want a candy cane, too. Well, you won’t have to choose, because the Sugar Bowl Bakery Peppermint Duet Bites brings you a bit of both. The 2-bite brownies are a cute culinary confection, with a brownie bottom half and a pretty peppermint-flecked top. It allows you to have your favorite chocolate treat with a seasonal spin, and for that, you’ll probably feel pretty grateful.
eCreamery 12 Days of Cookie Collection
Your kiddos are already counting down the days until Christmas. So give them something yummy to unwrap when you get the 12 Days of Cookie Collection from eCreamery. Kind of like a cookie advent calendar, the cookies are individually wrapped (you’ll get 2 gourmet cookies per day), and each come with a sticker to tell you which day to enjoy your treat. You’ll definitely have a happy holiday when you eat flavors like sugar, snickerdoodle, monster, chocolate chip, caramel chocolate chip, and double chocolate.
Cheryl’s Cookies Buttercream Frosted Holiday Cookies and Gourmet Pretzels
The Buttercream Frosted Holiday Cookies and Gourmet Pretzels from Cheryl’s Cookies is the sweetest (and salty) holiday sampler. The 10-count of cookies and pretzels includes buttercream frosted cut-out cookies, confection and chocolate covered pretzels, gingerbread cookies, and so much more to satisfy any sweet or savory palate. They’re (almost) too cute to eat.
eCreamery Hanukkah: 8 Night Collection
You’ll be able to have a pint a night (of ice cream, that is) with the Hanukkah: 8 Night Collection. The custom-churned and hand packed pints are made with yummy ingredients. But in addition to the delicious flavors, you’ll love the sweet ice cream names — like Gelt Goodness, Maccabee Munchies, or Shalom to You — that will Hanukkah even happier.
