Still looking for Holiday Gift Ideas? I have a few more gift ideas for you today. I don't know anyone who doesn't like receiving food as a fun gift. Think melt-in-your-mouth toffee or cheeses. Gifts for the kitchen or entertaining can be used all year long.
Here's a list of my favorite food gifts.
Schneider Kitchens Toffee
Schneider Kitchens Toffee is made in small batches from pure cane brown sugar and organic sweet cream butter, topped with premium dark chocolate and sprinkled with quality pecans. A host of sizes are available and the packaging can also be customized for party favors, weddings, baby showers and hospitality baskets. Schneider Kitchens Toffee is a great gift for Christmas, New Years or anytime! To order, call 713.665.1950 in Houston, Texas, or email Susan at: firstname.lastname@example.org; schneiderkitchens.com.

Peggy Smith and Sue Conley founded Cowgirl Creamery 15 years ago in Point Reyes Station, the heart of northern California’s premier dairy region. Considered pioneers in the American artisan cheese movement, their certified organic cheeses have won numerous awards. Their Tomales Bay Deluxe collection includes five cheeses from a growing cluster of artisan cheesemakers in the northern California region, plus a bag of locally baked olive oil and sea salt crackers. Cheeses include: Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam, Point Reyes Original Blue, Carmody, Estero Gold, and California Crottin. You can find these at cowgirlcreamery.com
Vosges offers a wide range of confections from holiday gift boxes to bars to truffles. My recent favorite is their Caramel Marshmallow. Fluffy marshmallows are made with Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans, burnt sugar caramel, French grey sea salt, dark chocolate and pecan and walnut –what could be better? And their chocolate comes with an expiration date so you know their candy is fresh. You can find these at vosgeschocolate.com
