It can be tough to figure out the best hostess gift or gift in general over the course of the long holiday season. So I pulled together some delicious gift ideas for the food lover in your life. And if I’m being honest, I would take one of each of these.
Everything Bagel Pool Float
This one isn’t totally edible, but if the food lover in your life also has a pool or snowbirds off in Florida, this adorable and hilarious Everything Bagel Pool Float is the perfect gift.
Pastrami Sandwich Kit from Langer’s Deli
I know that not everyone has access to great pastrami (like we do here in New York City), so what better gift to get for your favorite deli-lover than a classic pastrami kit (not kosher, but great for a Jewish-style cooking home) or a classic bagels, lox and cream cheese gift set. While you are at it, order some dessert – Breads Bakery in NYC makes a famous babka that can be shipped nationwide.
Jewish Cookie Cutters
Nothing says holidays like cookies, right? These Hannukkah-themed cookie cutters will keep all your cookies in the Hanukkah spirit. Pair them with some blue and white sprinkles, and your gift will be the life of the party or cookie exchange.
Tablet Cooking Stand
Acacia Wood Tablet Cooking Stand is the perfect gift for the recipe lover in your life or anyone who will be cooking up a storm in the kitchen during the holidays. This smooth-sanded acacia wood easel makes cooking with a recipe a breeze, cause I know you don’t have those recipes from bubbe memorized yet.
Funny Jewish Tea Towels
I can’t get over the cuteness of this “I CAN’T KEEP CALM I’M JEWISH” tea towel from Los Angeles Trading Co. No kitchen or bar cart is complete without a chic little tea towel. For all the
overbearing wonderful Jewish mothers in your life, you might also consider this pot holder that reads “I can’t keep calm cuz I’m a Jewish mother.”
White Sage Candle from Yankee Candle
OK, it’s not exactly edible, but it does smell delicious. Yankee Candle recently released a selection of new candles as part of its Fall Fragrance collection and would be the perfect leave-behind gift to spark those fall scents and memories in the home. I really love White Sage, but there’s so many seasonal scents to try including Bubbly Pomegranate.
Trio of Cooking Oils
Any home chef knows the importance of having really good oils available at all times, and Hanukkah is, after all, the holiday of oil. La Tourangelle sells amazing oil trios in various combinations. And oh yeah, they are also kosher – bonus!
World Traveler Spice Kit
Olivelle World Traveler Spice Collection Travel Spice Kit is a great gift to give the hostess who loves to cook and experiment with different flavor profiles. This is an amazing spice set representing 12 regions including Morocco, Jamaica and Egypt and featuring some of The Nosher’s favorite spices like dukkah and za’atar.
