2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Wine and food wednesday

Food glorious food..and don’t forget the wine.  I don’t know a person who will turn it away and with these offerings, you’ll be the best gift-giver ever. Here are some great gift items for the foodie in your life.

Cutting boards by Edward Wohl are crafted by joining sections from a single piece of specially selected, figured bird’s-eye maple, so the wood tone and figuring are consistent throughout. Each is precision-shaped and hand-beveled for graceful shape and balance. Individually hand-sanded and finished to a sensual silkiness, each board is an art

La Maison du Chocolate dark truffles are always a hit.

If there is a cook in the house, Dean and Deluca, Eataly or Beechers have just about anything your favorite cook would love.

One Hope Wine is a company with a heart.  A portion of their profits go to charity.  Look for some great Chardonnay and Merlot to add to your holiday cheer.

Everyone should have a Corkcicle in his or her house.  There is no need for an ice bucket to keep your wine cool.  Just put it in your wine and in minutes it will be perfectly chilled.

While in Mexico this summer, I tried Milagro Select Reserve Tequila and it simply changed my thoughts about a sipping Tequila What makes it even better is the bottle is simply stunning.

Popcorn Holiday Crate has four flavors and while that should be reason enough to love it…it’s hulless so no picking it out of your teeth. Popped in extra-virgin olive oil it’s not only good to eat, it’s healthier than most.

Whether the person you want to thank is your neighbor who throws a great party, or your postal worker who delivers the mail with a smile, there is no other way to share the ‘Joy of Thank You’ than with a box of Merci chocolates. Each box of Merci includes a delicious selection of rich, European chocolates made from the finest ingredients.  This year I’m particularly thankful for good health, great friends and new beginnings in 2013.  What are you thankful for?? Flavors range from Milk Chocolate, Cream Truffle and Hazelnut-Almond to Dark Cream and Praline-Crème and are truly scrupulous.

Don’t you hate looking for the right knife for your cheese platter? This set of stainless-steel cheese knifes will take care of that problem in no time and it’s a great price at Target.

One of my favorite companies that carries everything from cork screws to customized wine cabinets, Wine Enthusiast. This holiday season, they have over 1,000 gift ideas for your favorite lover of wine.  I particularly love the Ravi Instant Chiller.  This allows you to pour wine or vodka through a frozen chamber to give it a chill instantly.
