As December starts we are thinking about Christmas and the winter holidays and what to give to those special gourmands in our lives. This week we will share some favorite gift ideas for Foodies with you in our Weekend Bites Holiday Gift Guide!
This serious Artisan Design Series 5-Quart Stand Mixer from Kitchenaid comes with a Glass Bowl and is available in many fun colors. We have a white mixer for whipping up Meringue, but the red does look nice for the holidays.
Decadent and juicy, these are Harry & David’s large premium pears. Slice them up into a salad or simply enjoy a bite. We usually had these juicy large pears around the holiday times and you can make recipes like a Wine Poached Pear with these golden globes.
With the adorable illustrations based on the 12 Days of Christmas song, you can just take a look at your plates if your forget a verse. These cocktail plates could be used all year around too.
In case you were wondering what the lyrics to this song are:
On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me: A Partridge in a Pear Tree….
On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Twelve drummers drumming, Eleven pipers piping, Ten lords a leaping, Nine ladies dancing, Eight maids a milking, Seven swans a swimming, Six geese a laying, Five golden rings, Four calling birds, Three French Hens, Two turtle doves, And a Partridge in a pear tree.
For the tea lovers in your life, a handcrafted and painted Franz porcelain teapot from Wild Goose Tea will bring a little bright holiday cheer to your tea collection.
One thing that we always love getting are cheese knives. You can never have enough. Pottery Barn has this simply elegant marble cheese knife set that could match almost any decor.
This bakeware from Anthropologie is so sweetly decorated you may just wish to collect it rather than use it in the kitchen. With a delicate winter pattern, the rolling pin and muffin tin are works of art.
As the weather gets cooler who would not want a warm steaming cup of coffee with your cupcakes? The Nespresso Espresso maker from Williams Sonoma is ideal for a quick cup of espresso.
Just today at our local Peet’s Coffee and Tea in Santa Barbara (while we indulged in a Salted Caramel Mocha with whipped cream) we spied these cute limited edition holiday mugs and thought they would make great gifts. Also the coffee itself is quite good and in the mornings we like to enjoy a cup of Peet’s French Roast or the Fair Trade Blend.
From the French Garden House a Vintage French H. Germain Champagne Bucket is perfect for those special holiday occasions when you wish to serve chilled champagne with a little history. The classic ring handles add a touch of elegance to the bucket.
What gifts will you be giving to your favorite foodie and what is on your list from Santa?
