2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Haul out the holly + start making your lists! With Christmas fast approaching, we're rounding up some of our favorite gifts guaranteed to bring a little holiday cheer to every foodie + wine lover in your life.    

Le Creuset Dutch Oven

The iconic Le Creuset Dutch oven is indispensable in the kitchens of home cooks and professional chefs alike. Long recognized for its strength and durability, cast iron is the prime material for slow-cooking, braising and roasting, thanks to its ability to maintain even and consistent heat. The enameled Dutch oven needs no seasoning, and it’s suitable for both stovetop and oven use. Whether you're a home cook or seasoned pro, every kitchen will brighten up with a Le Creuset Dutch Oven.  

Williams Sonoma Peppermint Bark

Williams Sonoma’s nostalgic peppermint bark is often copied but never matched in quality or flavor. The once-a-year favorite is handcrafted using the finest ingredients, including custom-blended Guittard chocolate and triple-distilled oil of peppermint. Master candy makers pour a layer of melted dark chocolate on a marble table and then top it with a layer of creamy white chocolate. This "bark" is finished with a snowfall of handmade peppermint candy pieces. The result is an unforgettable holiday confection with a perfect harmony of flavors and textures in every bite. This year, Williams Sonoma has tucked Gift Cards ranging from $20 to $1000 inside tins of their Peppermint Bark – there’s a Chance To Win With Every Tin!  

Williams Sonoma Hot Chocolate + Mini Marshmallows

Hot chocolate is even better when you add fluffy marshmallows. This gift bundle includes both treats. Inspired by the hot chocolate served in Parisian cafés, Williams Sonoma’s  Classic Hot Chocolate is intensely chocolaty with a well-rounded body, rich taste, smooth texture and exquisite aroma. Their Vanilla Marshmallows are crafted by confectioners using traditional methods – the secret to the airy-light texture and creamy sweetness.  

Williams Sonoma’s Exclusive Stainless Steel Thermo-Clad™ Cookware

Have someone that loves to cook on your list this year? This ultimate cookware set has all of the cookware pieces a cook uses most often for both everyday cooking and entertaining.

The Goldbug Collection offer beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry to wear with pride and spread a little joy this holiday season.    

Holy City Brewing Sparkly Princess Beer

Brewed for the Best Of Awards Party 2017, and upon the request of the folks at the City Paper, Holy City Brewing kept to the Fairytale theme for the festivities. What kind of fairy tale would it be if it didn’t have its own Sparkly Princess? Holy City Brewing decided to kettle-sour an IPA, to make something hoppy, tart and full of citrus. Using Eldorado as the bittering hop and then dry-hopping it with even more of the stuff, giving it a mouth-watering hop-nose. Crisp and refreshing, the Sparkly Princess + all of Holy City Brewing's catalog make the perfect gift for any beer lover.    

Blackberry Farm Classic Saison

These beers are about recreating, connecting and enjoying an active lifestyle. Our personal favorite, the Classic Saison, is a medium-bodied, refreshing brew that pairs well with a wide variety of foods or can be enjoyed by itself. Whether you’re a beer novice or a true brewmaster, Blackberry Farms Classic Saison checks all the boxes for a perfect holiday gift.
