Christmas is officially on Monday and If you're like me then you still have some last minute shopping to do 😖. I usually start my shopping around end of October to beginning of November but due to my move I put it off this year. So I wanted to help all the other slackers out there with some last minute gift ideas. These ideas are great if you have a friend or family member who loves food or cooking. Lets get to the list ➡
#1- Specialty Food Stores.
Look for a store in your area that specializes in a certain food. Maybe this is a wine or cheese store, maybe its a ethnic market or a olive oil store. Either way getting a special item will sure to please.
If you're in my neck of the woods try the The Olive Barrel in Grand Forks, North Dakota. This is a awesome store where you can try flavored oils or vinegar. Plus it has special seasonings, flavored pasta, jams, salts, and more. I made it a point to buy my moms gift here 🌝.
#2- Cool Kitchen Gadgets.
Go to your local Walmart, Target, or Bed Bath & Beyond and look for kitchen gadgets. They're no ends to the kinds of things you can find, like a utensil holder with a Bluetooth speaker, a refillable Olive Oil Sprayer. Whatever you pick they are always fun gifts.
#3- Food Gift Certificates.
This is a easy one. If you know their favorite restaurant or a new place they want to try, then get them a gift certificate. Last year my awesome in-laws got me a gift certificate to a deli store in Grand Forks, ND called L&M Meats.
It was great! My hubby and I went and stocked up.
#4- Cooking Class/Wine Tasting.
Look around for fun cooking classes or wine tasting. You can find things like coffee tastings, wine tastings or look for a local brewery to try some beer.
#5- Food Subscription Box.
This is my personal favorite. So you might not have the physical box for them to open on Christmas but you are guaranteeing them a gift every month for the next year. How awesome is that! Plus there is to end to the kind of subscription boxes out there.
Try The World
Just to name a few. Just google "food subscription boxes" and you'll get plenty of variety to choose from.
I hope this helped you with some last minute shopping and I hope everyone has happy holidays and a happy new year😘.
