7 Last-Minute Food Gift Ideas

Teas

You can never have too much tea, and, considering all the different kinds out there, a gift basket of 6-12 different kinds of teas would be an enticing addition to anyone’s pantry.

Add-on for the extra-motivated: a kettle and teacups are obvious choices, of course; but check out this adorable tea strainer! Looks like my wishlist for holiday 2012 is already in the works…

Soup Packs

Buy the ingredients for your favorite soup – particularly the kind of soup that needs a lot of different items, like tortilla,  lentil or vegetable barley. Assemble the ingredients in a mason jar. For more great gifts you can make in a mason jar, click here.

Add-on for the extra-motivated: ramekins, a ladle, and/or a crock pot!

World Tour of Cheese

For the dairy-fiends on your list, head straight to the cheese counter. Try to pick out a few unusual and interesting cheeses; variety is key! One of my favorites is Oregon-based Rogue Creamery’s smokey blue cheese.

Add-on for the extra-motivated: cheese knife & cutting board.
