Holiday Gift Guide: Foodie Gifts, Part 1

by Mrs. Moneysaver on November 29, 2009

As I wrote last week, over the next two weeks I’ll be sharing some gift ideas for a wide range recipients.  Nearly all are under $50, and I’m hoping this will give you a hand in shopping for those people on your guest list that are just so hard to shop for!  You find the compiled Gift Guide under the Christmas tab at the top of the site.

I’ve had the opportunity to try some yummy food gifts lately.  (My waistline shows it!)  Here are some of the tops I’ve found.

cheryl & co brownies

1.  Cheryl & Co. I recently had the opportunity to try some buttercream frosted sugar cookies and brownies from Cheryl & Co.  Now, I am quite the sweets conissuier, and brownies happen to be one of my biggest weaknesses.  So you could say I’m a brownie expert, and these brownies from Cheryl & Co. are delicious.  My personal favorite:  hot fudge.  If you’re looking for a yummy treat to send a friend, or if you’re a small business owner looking to send client gifts, the brownie (or cookie!) boxes would be a classy idea.  Brownie boxes start at $28.95, while cookie and gift tins begin at prices a bit lower.  And if you order through ShopAtHome.com, you can currently get 5% cash back on your purchase.

2.  The Popcorn Factory This company sent me their Big Snow Popcorn Tin to sample.  As I should have guessed by the company name- they know popcorn!  (Bet you didn’t know that the The Popcorn Factory pops over a million pounds of popcorn in a year!)  The Big Snow Popcorn Tin comes in three different sizes, with prices ranging from $25 to $40.  Each tin includes caramel, butter, and cheese popcorn, and you can even personalize the tin lid with a picture or message for a bit extra.  You know, we have a few people on our Christmas shopping list that are really hard to shop for, and a popcorn tin would suite them wonderfully.  And with the personalization option, it’s gives the popcorn gift that little something extra.  ShopAtHome.com is currently giving 8% back, and they also have some coupon codes available for $5 off your purchase.  I think I also saw an ad in a recent Red Plum insert for a certain holiday tin priced at 50% off.

eco wine trio3.  Eco Wine Trio (For gift recipients 21 years and older.) I’m not encouraging you to drink, but perhaps you have someone on your Christmas list who enjoys a nice glass of wine.  My husband likes a glass of wine with dinner sometimes, so he was pretty excited to try the Eco Wine Trio from wine.com recently.  The trio includes bottles of Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Bonus Passus, all from the Boisset Family Estates.  The wines come in 100% recyclable plastic (PET), making this wine eco-friendly as well.  My husband, the winer drinker in our house, loved these wines, priced at $29.95 for the boxed set of three.  Great gift for a winer-drinker on your Christmas list!  ShopAtHome.com also has a 3% cash back offer available right now, along with some coupon codes.

4.  Fannie May Candies If the popcorn and brownies didn’t satisfy my sweet tooth, the truffles I received from Fannie May surely should have, right?   Fannie May opened in 1920, so they have plenty of experience making chocolates.  The classy red truffle boxes run from $18 to $25, making them look very Christmas-appropriate.  I know of a certain grandma on our list who would enjoy these!  In addition to yummy truffles, Fannie May Candies also makes other chocolates and cakesShopAtHome.com is giving 9% cash back right now, and also has a couple of coupon codes available.  And make sure you don’t miss out on the Specials section of the Fannie May website.

I hope these gift ideas help as you shop!
