Spoonfuls of Comfort
For those times when only a batch of heartwarming soup will do, Spoonfuls of Comfort is the ultimate gift for someone in need of an uplifting gesture. Every box comes with a delicious batch of soup, rolls, cookies, and a custom soup ladle fit with a bow. If you find yourself at a loss for a great gift, because only the most comforting option will do, the gift of soup is the perfect solution.
The Food Journal
Feed anyone's foodie and journal-loving nature with a scrapbook style food journal that can be used to record their latest food adventures. The mixture of both blank and prompted pages are a great place to record restaurant reviews, write down new recipe experiments, paste paper clippings, and input other food musings in The Food Journal.
Baking SetFor the baker on your list, we suggest a colorful 4-piece baking set from Joseph Joseph that includes an adjustable rolling pin, a pie timer, and an elevated spatula and pastry brush, all in fun colors of pink and purple. These elevated kitchen tools are one of our favorite items – no worrying about where to set the spatula and no mess on the countertop. Very cool idea.

Hedley & Bennet Half & Half Apron
An apron is another necessity that a cook can’t go without. Hedley & Bennett's aprons are handmade using top-grade materials such as American canvas, raw Japanese selvage denim, and European linens. This Half & Half 2.0 Apron makes a fantastic gift, and you could even add a personal touch by having it embroidered.
State Dish Towels
These 100% cotton dish towels from Uncommon Goods are a vibrant tribute to whichever state you call home. Silk screened with names, images and iconic landmarks to decorate each towel, we have to agree with Uncommon Goods when they say, "These dishtowels look so good, you might end up framing them."
Wine AeratorAny wine lover will appreciate a wine aerator. This aerator from LS Arts is not a large, complicated contraption –it’s small and handy and allows you to decant the wine instantly when you’re pouring it out of the bottle. Packaged with a sleek vacuum pump stopper, this is a gift that will be truly appreciated.
Tile Cheese MarkersThese elegant tile cheese markers from Placetile Designs make a thoughtful gift and will add a touch of elegance, as well as information, to any wine and cheese party. You can also order tile wine markers and menu tiles.
Nutmeg MillThis nutmeg mill from Cole & Mason is a unique gift for the person who really does have everything and could be used during the holidays when sprinkling nutmeg over eggnog or on top of a pumpkin pie. It holds up to 4 whole nutmegs in the side compartment and allows the nutmeg to be grated very finely with no risk to fingers!
For wine enthusiasts, a set of CHILLBALLS from Make My Day Products will probably be the most popular gift of the season. Clip a frozen ball on the side of the wine glass so that it sits securely at the bottom of the glass. It keeps the wine at just the right temperature without compromising the flavor. They come packaged in a portable storage unit along with four clips of two different lengths. They’re dishwasher safe and stan-resistant.
Food Poetry MagnetsHere’s the perfect gift for someone who loves both words and food: a set of magnetic poetry featuring fabulous food words like tapenade and carpaccio. They’ll be able to turn the fridge into a creative outlet, even before they start cooking. For your more practical foodie friends, you can order grocery list magnets or magnets with recipes for cocktails.
Popcorn BowlFor your movie-loving foodie friends, we recommend this enamelware popcorn bowl from Golden Rabbit. You can select one large bowl or two small bows, both of which come in a matching gift box. To complete your gift, tuck in some bag of microwave popcorn and either a favorite movie DVD or some movie tickets.
Designer Kitchen LinensApron and kitchen linen from the Working Class Studio at the Savannah College of Art and Design make a perfect gift for novice cooks as well as more “well-seasoned” cooks. The products are designed and produced by students, alumni and faculty of the college and sold in retail stores across the county. The Savannah Toile collection features aprons, oven mitts, pot holders and tea towels.
