With so many delicious options out there, it’s hard to narrow down what gift to get for the food lover on your list. Here are some of our favourite (and tastiest) ideas both big and bite-sized. —Amanda Nunes
Cheese, please! A gourmet box will make any cheese lover’s holiday 100 per cent better. The Saputo Italian Cheesemaking Tradition box features faves like Saputo’s Bella Lodi, Smoke Flavoured Caciocavallo and Friulano, plus a booklet to guide you through a tasting.
Läderach’s Milk Chocolate Honey and Orange Praline Stars ($43), with four flavours in a festive box, are the perfect indulgence to enjoy this winter.
Rosen Cinnamon Bun Spread ($8) is a delicious way to give Christmas morning toast and pancakes a gourmet upgrade.
The Digital Hamilton Beach Air Fryer ($130) is perfect for the home chef. Whip up crispy fries, chicken wings and even desserts in a flash with oil-free cooking.
Soup season is upon us—and smoothie season never ended. Vitamix’s first Immersion Blender ($200) is a whiz at helping create ideal textures with just one hand, in any container you happen to have on hand.
Supper doesn’t have to be hard! Claire Tansey, former food director for Chatelaine, shares her recipes for fast, simple and healthy meals in her book, Dinner Uncomplicated. ($32)
Made in B.C. by two omnivores-turned-vegans who missed the deep, rich flavour that came from meat-based meals, Umami Bomb Shiitake Chili Oil ($9) adds a unique and irresistible quality to any dish.
