Searching for the perfect gift for a foodie friend? Get ready to discover award-winning lobster pot pies, the best organic fruit boxes we've tasted and more delicious holiday gift ideas in this week's KD Finds.
1. Diamond Creek Gravelly Meadow Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Surprise the wine lover in your life with a bottle from this legendary vineyard. For more than four decades, Napa Valley's Diamond Creek Vineyards has been producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon with unique flavor profiles shaped by the mountainside's distinct soil types. The wine from Gravelly Meadow, a parcel with stony, gravelly soil from a pre-historic river bed, tastes earthy and jammy with hints of berries and spices.
The perfect stocking stuffers, these sweet treats from a Brooklyn, New York-based gourmet pretzel business come in an array of mouth-watering toppings like mocha espresso, banana cream and peanut butter and jelly. We loved munching on Toffee Crunch, covered with crunchy toffee bits over thick milk chocolate, and Peppermint Crunch, dipped in peppermint candy dust.
3. McFadden Farm Bay Wreath With Three Sets of Chilis
Wonderfully fragrant out of the box, this handmade wreath of organic bay leaves and dried chilis ships from a Northern California farm to your doorstep and instantly spruces up the space. Snip herbs all year-long—it's the gift that keeps on giving!
4. Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co. Permaquid Point Lobster Pot Pie
These award-winning lobster pot pies from a Maine-based gourmet lobster company are a delicious and decadent holiday gift! They're generously filled with Maine lobster meat and sherry-cream sauce and topped with adorable puff pastry lobsters.
The fruit from this organic farm in Brentwood, California is picked from the tree and shipped to your door in two days so that you can enjoy fresh, tree-ripened flavors. We love this gift set that includes three pounds of seasonal fruit and an array of spreads and snacks like chewy peanut butter cookies and plum-blueberry conserve.
You know who we're talking about here. The ones that lick their plates clean, the ones who wax poetic about cheese, beer or other edible oddity, the ones whose ears perk at the mention of "artisanal," "hand-crafted" or "small-batch" and the ones who stood in line for the Cronut—we are your people, and this is what we want for Christmas.
For the food lover in your life, we've rounded up our favorite gifts for the season. Get ready to discover award-winning Maine lobster pot pies and organic California farm-fresh fruit boxes that are some of the most flavorful we've tasted.
