7 Last-Minute Food Gift Ideas

 

Still have a name or three left on your holiday gift list? As long as you have an idea of the recipients’ dietary restrictions & habits, it’s hard to go wrong with the gift of food. Take a peek at our ideas for tasty last-minute gift ideas!

Movie Night In

You (probably) won’t get kicked out of the living room for enjoying a bottle of wine, so give the gift of a boozy at-home movie night! Put together a gift basket of gourmet popcorn, candy  and a bottle of wine or sparkling cider for a boozy movie night.

Add-on for the extra-motivated: Netflix subscription

Sweets

It’s hard to go wrong with a basket full of gourmet sweets! Trader Joe’s has a ton of great holiday-themed sweets, like this candy cane coal!

Add-on for the extra-motivated: a visit to the dentist!

Extravagant Upgrades

High-quality olive oils can do wonders in the kitchen, but they can be pricey. Splurge a little on the chef in your life. Pair it with a flavored vinegar.

A set of sea salts also makes a great gift for an adventurous chef. Check out this Dean & Deluca set of four different salts from around the world.

Add-on for the extra-motivated: Good kitchen knives. I particularly love my Kuhn Rikon paring knife – they come in a variety of fun colors, too!
