If you’ve been to a supermarket or department store in the last few weeks, there’s one thing that’s evident: The holidays are coming up, fast. Even though I personally haven’t heard any Christmas tunes playing through the speakers at Stop & Shop, they’re bound to be added to the playlist in the next few weeks, and if that gives you gifting-based anxiety, you’re not alone. It’s totally okay not to know what to gift your loved ones yet — you’ve got plenty of time — but it’s always a good idea to get a jump on your holiday shopping to score the best deals and avoid last-minute stress. Luckily, if the person in your life loves food, you’ve come to the right place for some gifting inspo. If you’ve already gifted them plenty of cookware and kitchen gadgets, we suggest venturing into top-tier specialty food items. One thing that we here at The Kitchn can’t get enough of is high-quality olive oil, and as if they could read our minds, editor-favorite brand Brightland just restocked their Mini Essentials bundle that sold out five times in the past and is perfect for holiday gifting. 

What Is the Mini Essentials Bundle? 

This ultra-giftable bundle combines Brightland’s bestsellers in small, easy-to-share sizes. It includes two of the brand’s exceptional olive oils (AWAKE and ALIVE) and two of their editor-loved vinegars (RAPTURE and PARASOL). Both AWAKE and ALIVE are cold-pressed extra virgin olive oils, with flavor profiles that range from bold and robust to smooth and grassy. Rapture is a raw Balsamic vinegar that’s double fermented with California zinfandel grapes and ripe Triple Crown blackberries, while PARASOL is a raw Champagne vinegar double fermented with California chardonnay grapes and juicy Navel and Valencia oranges. Plus, with a perfect five-star average rating from over 1,100 reviews on the site, it’s clear that Brightland customers are also big fans of the set.

What Brightland Reviewers Are Saying 

Average Rating: 5/5

“I purchased the mini essential to try and what a find. Such quality and flavor. I purchased another to gift to my daughter. I like the packaging and most of all the delicious smooth flavor of the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The shipping is quick and the value is spot on.” — Linda S.

“I make great homemade salad dressings but I don’t want to use my Brightland items in a dressing any more. I love the oils and vinegars so much that I pour them on my food for an instant taste elevation.” — Brenda B.

“I received this as a gift and well after using all the bottles I then proceeded to go on the website and order the larger bottles. These are amazing!” — Dale

Gifting shouldn’t be stressful — that’s why getting a jump on your holiday shopping is such a good idea. And, when you snag The Mini Essentials from Brightland, you can be sure the food-lover in your life is going to absolutely love it.
