E Is for Eats to Enjoy
Don’t have time to make something from scratch for everyone (read: anyone) on your holiday list this year? It happens! If you still want to gift some edible treats, consider shopping from this guide. We’ve rounded up all sorts of fun things you can send through the mail like filet mignon, spicy prosciutto spread, and bourbon balls.
- Farmstead Goat Milk Caramels, $12 for 3.2 ounces at Big Picture Farm: Pick from six different flavors — including Sea Salt & Bourbon Vanilla, Chai, or Maple Cream — and put the adorable box in a stocking or put a ribbon around it and call it a day.
- Lemon Zing Organic Pistachios, $8 for 12 ounces at Santa Barbara Pistachios: Get these for your friend who’s nuts for nuts. They’re highly addictive, so if you’re worried, you can get a four-pound bag for $39.
- Bonne Maman Preserves Advent Calendar, $28 for 24, 1-ounce jars: Even if you gift this after the countdown to Christmas is over (read: on Christmas day), the recipient is still sure to be pumped. It features classic flavors and unique ones like Orange & Cinnamon, Pineapple and Rum, and more.
- Small Tin, $25 at Poplandia Popcorn: A major upgrade from the traditional popcorn tin, you can pick two different flavors to go into this one-gallon container — flavors like Bananas Foster, Garlic Cheese, and Honey Lavender.
- Australian Ginger Tumbled in Dark Chocolate, $8 for 75 grams at Soma Chocolate: Australian ginger is extra zingy and peppery. So imagine it candied — and then covered in dark chocolate.
- ‘Nduja, $9 at iGourmet: Yes, we recommended this spicy prosciutto spread last year, and we’ll keep doing it every year. Because it’s that good.
- Breakfast in Bed, $65 at Farm to People: Get this for your favorite roommate and then actually put it to use for her. It comes with pancake mix, syrup, apricot conserve, and more. Have her open it one morning and then make her breakfast in bed the next.
- USDA Prime Filet Mignon, $36 for six ounces at Lobel’s: Want to blow a meat-lover’s mind? Send her this tender filet of ready-to-be-cooked meat through the mail.
- Pappy’s Bourbon Balls, $39 for 12 at Goldbely: Made with chocolate and Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year bourbon, these bite-sized treats are the most indulgent things on this list.
