Are you interested in giving the gift of food for the holidays? This season, skip the standard tins of cookies and fruit baskets and choose a truly high-quality present that shows your friend, partner, or family member how much you care.
There are endless options for gourmet food gifts, whether your recipient prefers sweet desserts, savory meats, or salty cheeses. Treat your foodie friends and family to one of the luxury food items listed below.
1. Charcuterie Board Sampler
In recent years, charcuterie boards have transformed from simple plates with cheeses and crackers to full-blown spreads with nuts, meats, jams, fruits, and many other delicious additions. This holiday season, gift your loved one a gourmet charcuterie sampler set.
These sets can come filled with pre-selected items, or you can customize your set to suit your recipient's palate. Either way, consider selecting a variety of snack options so your friend or family member has a little bit of everything. Many samplers are packaged with wooden boards, and your recipient can use theirs to create their own charcuterie ensemble in the future.
2. Caviar Gift Set
If you're in search of only the best gourmet food gift, try a caviar gift set. This delectably nutty and buttery treat is the height of luxury, and you have plenty of gift options that will suit everyone from caviar novices to experienced enjoyers.
A caviar starter set is an ideal choice for recipients new to the world of caviar — you can include one or two premium caviar options to get them started, plus some recommendations for ideal pairings. Are you looking for a gift for a caviar aficionado? Choose an option that features their preferred caviar for a memorable assortment.
If you're interested in gifting more of an experience than a physical item, consider hosting a caviar tasting event for a holiday party they won't soon forget. Another idea is to purchase a caviar subscription on your loved one's behalf — as a member, they'll receive periodic deliveries of high-quality caviar, allowing them to experience the delicious taste and nutritional value of caviar more frequently.
3. Box of Truffle Chocolates
What are the holidays without the chance to indulge in a few sweet treats? A box of chocolates is the ideal gift for anyone with a sweet tooth. Elevate your present by choosing a diverse array of truffles instead of standard chocolates. Pick up a beautifully wrapped box of decadent bonbons from an expert chocolatier to leave a lasting impression on your friend or family member.
A truly special gift idea is to surprise your loved one with chocolate-making lessons alongside their smaller gift. See if the chocolatier you buy from offers classes or events. Consider booking a time for you and your loved one to experience it together, and you'll walk away with a few new skills and plenty of memories.
4. Fruit Preserves and Spreads Set
When you're in search of Christmas gifts for the foodies in your life, you can never go wrong with a fun twist on a traditional Advent calendar. This set includes 23 fruit spreads and one honey, all made in France, so your loved one will have no problem finding an option they love. If you want to add a bit more and turn it all into a gift basket, consider providing different ways for them to try the spreads, like a croissant baking mix.
5. Wine Club Subscription
Have your holiday food gift delivered right to your recipient's house by opting for a wine club subscription. These subscriptions often come with a monthly fee, and you can gift your friend the first month's selection. Choose a wine club that best aligns with your recipient's wine preferences — some only feature natural wines, while others include unique options from smaller wineries. If you aren't sure, select a subscription that comes with plenty of variety.
6. French Macarons Gift Box
Give your loved one the gift of experiencing authentic French macarons. This luxury food gift is the ideal idea for an adventurous foodie, as you can find sets with all kinds of assorted flavors, from coffee to rose and everything in between. There are flavors even the most selective of eaters will enjoy.
Whether or not they've spent time in France before, they'll certainly feel like it as they're indulging in your gift of delectable desserts. Make your gift stand out even more by pairing it with a bottle of dry Champagne, a bag of ground coffee, or a box of herbal tea. This way, your recipient can enjoy their macarons as an experience.
7. Premium Meat Selection
Elevate your friends' and family's home cooking when you send them a selection of premium meats. No matter if they're serving a holiday dinner or simply enjoying a meal for two, they'll certainly look forward to cooking up a juicy and marbled wagyu cut sourced right from Japan.
This bundle is the perfect way to impress your loved one with a prestigious culinary experience. If your recipient has never tried wagyu before, you may want to include a personalized list of ideas to help them enjoy it best, such as your favorite recipes or items that pair best with the meat, such as a quality bottle of Cabernet.
8. Gourmet Oils Set for Cooking and Eating
A curated set of gourmet oils is the best holiday food gift for your favorite chef. Putting together an assortment of premium options is a thoughtful way to help your loved one take their skills in the kitchen to the next level.
Aside from high-quality olive oil, you can fill your gift basket with other, more unique options. For example, a premium white or black truffle oil is the perfect way to finish off a dish before serving it, and a bottle of traditionally aged balsamic vinegar is a decadent way of improving the flavors of roast meats and salads.
Create a varied arrangement with only the best options to ensure your loved one has all the extras they need to cook and serve delicious meals during the holidays.
