7 Gifts for the Foodie on Your List


Somehow, the holiday season has a way of sneaking up on us, but last minute shopping doesn’t need to be subpar. This season, consider forgoing the endless Amazon Prime cart (physical vs. mailing address… the horror) and do some local shopping instead. With flurries in the air and fairy lights adorning every window, you might even find your errands turn into an enjoyable yuletide tradition. Ok, santa’s helpers, read on for the best foodie gifts in town.

The weather outside is frightful, but the wine is so delightful
We have got your wino covered with Jackson Hole Winery’s mini bottles, chocolate pairings, and cute coasters. You can even treat your budding sommelier to a tasting at the winery’s gorgeous location just south of town. What goes with snow days? Cabernet, of course.

Stop by Jackson Hole Winery and stock up: half bottles range from $14- $16; chocolate pairing tins are $8; coasters are $12; tastings are $15 per person.

Oh, this old thing?cutting board

For the one with the perfect kitchen. This eye-catching walnut cutting board bears the outline of the Tetons and is too beautiful to ever see the inside of a drawer. Throw in some high quality linen dishtowels as a little something extra, for that special someone who is always a little extra themselves.

The cutting board retails at $160 and the towels retail at $48. Find these items, and more, at Mountain Dandy.

If visions of sugarplums dance in their heads
World-renowned chocolatier Oscar Ortega’s hazelnut praline took on the best chocolates in the world, and won. So, grab this little winner and a few other favorites to satisfy your honey’s sweet tooth. Cute orange packaging means you don’t even have to wrap it. How very zen.

Let me upgrade you
If someone on your list has some worn-out baking tools, look no further than Belle Cose for copper measuring cups and spoons that will have your favorite baker ditching the plastic setup and never looking back. They’ll last for many Christmases to come.

For the foodie who has everything
This incredible anthology of Scandinavian inspired dishes and warming treats for the holiday season is unlike anything your favorite foodie is likely to have in their cookbook repertoire. The photography is outstanding, and there are some tried and true favorites mixed in with unique dishes galore. Plus, they can finally dust off that fondue set you gave them in 1968.

I’ll toast to that
For cocktails so professional, you won’t want to après anywhere but home. Bonus holiday hack: pair these Moscow mule mugs with some Jackson Hole Stillworks vodka and bottles of organic ginger beer for the best lush stocking yet. We also love how these mugs are actually pure copper, instead of just lined.
