As cooks and food lovers, it follows that we love edible gifts, particularly when they come from our own kitchen. But we also know there are tremendous online resources for food gifts — websites featuring all kinds of makers, bakers, and artisans offering delicious and beautifully packaged treats, sweets, and snacks. So, we're curious: where do you shop for food gifts online, particularly when you're looking for something special and indulgent? What is your recommendation for the best, most unusual, or inspired food gifts on the web?
Here are just a few of our favorite resources:
- Zingerman's: Zingerman's has excellent taste in unusual and gourmet foods, and they excel at gift boxes.
- New York Mouth: This site features wonderful small, independent producers from New York and beyond, with a pretty impressive list of gift box options.
- Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream: What more can we say about Jeni's that hasn't been said already? Incredibly delicious ice cream and sorbets in wild flavors like Sweet Potato with Torched Marshmallow and Absinthe and Meringe.
