South of Vanilla's 2015 Foodie Holiday Gift Guide

Hey friends, did you notice that I missed November’s edition of the Daily 5? Yeah…I didn’t either.

Since the end of November usually marks the start of holiday shopping, I was going to post South of Vanilla’s 2015 Foodie Gift Guide (see last year’s here), but then I realized I forgot to hit “publish” after actually writing the post. Blogger fail. At least I am right in time for all of those (like yours truly) procrastinating on holiday shopping!

1.     Chambord Bodum French Press

If you haven’t tried French Pressed coffee (or a Chemex for that matter), you are missing out. Classic, affordable, and deserving of a place at everyone’s brunch table.  (This particular model also comes in a fantastic new copper edition.)

2.     Foodie Dice

Most foodies are eternally struggling with age-old question of what’s for dinner. Help them take the guesswork out of it.

3.     Kate Spade Fine China Place Setting

Is this number one on everyone’s wedding registry?  If not, it’s definitely at the top of everyone’s holiday list.

4.     Robot Tea Diffuser

I caaaaaan’t. And I thought no tea diffuser was more perfect than my tea-rex.

5.     Mast Brother’s Chocolate

I never thought I would recommend spending $9 on a single bar of chocolate, but here I am. Perfect gift for the person who won’t splurge on himself or herself.

6.    Donut Print

Oh, this print is whimsical and perfect for the donut lover. (Read: everyone.) Shop small by purchasing this print, and take a look at all of Lily & Val’s chalkboard food art.

7.     Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Attachment

Perfect for the baker, perfect for the ice-cream connoisseur. You haven’t lived until you’ve made your own ice cream and custard.

8.     Copper Flatware

Copper is the trend for the 2015 holiday season. Versions are popping up everywhere, and they are so lovely.

9.     Threshold Bar Cart

Imagine all the drinks your favorite person can make….and all the pinterest-worthy ways to style a bar cart. Quite possibly the best mid-century trend to make a strong comeback.

10. Tequila Mockingbird

A punny literary cocktail cookbook? Can’t wait until the sequel comes out.
