2022 Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers, Part 1 #holidaygiftguide #giftsforfoodies #somethingforeveryone

It's that time of year again...time for me to share my annual Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers! This year's gift suggestions will be shared in three parts over the next week...and there's literally something for every kind of food lover on your shopping list. From healthy food gifts to small artisan food companies...must-have cookbooks to gourmet chocolate...and much more. I've personally tried every gift item I'm sharing this year, and they're all amazing! Let's get started with my first five gift ideas!

(1) Theo Chocolate Peppermint Wonderland Holiday Gift Box ($33.99). 
Theo Chocolate is based in Seattle, where they've been making creative artisan bean-to-bar chocolate since 2006. This year's holiday line includes an amazing chocolate gift box that's a peppermint lover's dream come true! Inside a festive holiday box are four of Theo's seasonal peppermint chocolate items: Peppermint Drinking Chocolate, a Peppermint Crunch 70% Dark Chocolate Bar, Peppermint Crunch Cookie Bites, and a box of Peppermint Cocoa Cups. That's plenty of minty goodness to celebrate the season! The combination of cooling peppermint and Theo's dark chocolate works perfectly together...not overly sweet. The Peppermint Wonderland Holiday Gift Box...and the rest of Theo's Holiday line...is available for purchase from the company's convenient online store. As an added bonus, Theo Chocolate is currently offering free shipping on all orders that are $65+!!

(2) Reid's Gourmet Mini Classic Peanut Butter Gift Box ($11.99) and Mini Gourmet Peanut Butter Gift Box ($13.99). Reid's Gourmet is a Michigan-based company that produces delicious local honey and small-batch artisan peanut butters. Reid's Gourmet peanut butter contains no processed sugars or oils -- so the flavor of the peanuts truly shines through! Both peanut butter samplers contain four 1-ounce mini jars of their all-natural peanut butter. The Mini Classic Peanut Butter Gift Box includes Original, Honey, Cinnamon, and Spicy (perfect for making savory dishes like peanut noodles!). 
The Mini Gourmet Peanut Butter Gift Box includes Espresso, Blueberry, Maple Crunch, and Dark Chocolate flavors. Both collections feature cute  labels, packed in clear cubes tied with ribbon. When I opened my box, I immediately loved the packaging presentation! 

Either collection is a perfect gift for peanut butter lovers. And? Individual mini jars make fantastic stocking stuffers! These mini peanut butter gift sets -- plus lots of other great holiday gift ideas -- can be ordered direct from the Reid's Gourmet online Gift Shop.

(3) Crazy Cups Deluxe Flavored Coffee Gift Box 
(20 for $29.99 / 30 for $44.99). For the coffee lover on your holiday list? This collection of flavored K-cup compatible Medium roast coffee cups will make them smile from ear to ear! With fun flavors like Frosted Oatmeal Cookie, every cup of coffee will be a flavor adventure! I've been using Crazy Cups the past couple of years, and I'm impressed with their wide range of flavors AND how they truly taste like the name indicates. The coffee used is Medium roast Arabica -- naturally flavored, but not sweetened. The gift set currently includes seasonal offerings from their holiday line like Santa's Sugar Cookie and Caramel Egg Nog. The hardest part is deciding which flavor to try first! The gift set comes in a decorative box all ready to put under the tree -- simply add a gift tag, and you're done! As an added bonus? Crazy Cups coffee cups are eco-friendly and 100% recyclable! This Deluxe Flavored Gift Box can be ordered direct from the Crazy Cups online gift shop.

(4) Stonewall Kitchen Holiday 2022 Farmhouse Breakfast Gift ($49.95)Maine-based Stonewall Kitchen has been offering delicious artisan food items for more than three decades. A cozy Christmas morning breakfast is a tradition with many families. This year's  Stonewall Kitchen Farmhouse Breakfast gift set includes everything needed to cook up a special holiday breakfast: Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle Mix, pure Maine Maple Syrup, their iconic Wild Maine Blueberry Jam (the first Stonewall Kitchen item created), and a pretty holly berry tea towel. If you have family or friends who can't make it home for the holidays this year, this thoughtful  gift set is a heartwarming way to stay connected with them across the miles!
I especially love that this lovely breakfast gift set arrives carefully packaged in an outer shipping box. Protected inside is a festive holly berry design box that's ready to go right under the tree. That's definitely a great time saver during the hectic holiday season! This breakfast gift set -- and the entire Stonewall Kitchen holiday gift line -- can be purchased directly from the company's convenient online  website store

(5) Elda's Kitchen Grill It or Skillet Sauces 3-Pack ($24.00)
Elda's Kitchen creates healthy artisan cooking sauces with flavors inspired by global cuisines...and family matriarch Elda. These flavorful small-batch sauces are vegan and non-GMO...and they contain zero high fructose corn syrup, gluten, preservatives, or MSG. Their
 fun Grill It or Skillet 3-Pack contains 8-ounce bottles of Ginger Teriyaki, Honey Ginger & Soy, and Black Pepper Sauces. The sauces can be used on the stovetop for skillet dishes and stir fries. But? These versatile sauces can also be used to to glaze grilled meats and veggies! I recently made pan-seared salmon with the Ginger Teriyaki sauce, and it was FABULOUS!! This gift set...and all Elda's Kitchen sauces...can be purchased from the company's website.

Disclosure: The companies that create the items featured in my 2022 Holiday Gift Guide provided me with sample items to facilitate inclusion. I only recommend items here that I have personally used and enjoy.
