Looking for Part 1 of the Holiday Gift Guide: From Oregon with Love? You will find that here.
Did you know that throughout the month of December I’m going to be giving away some of these beauties? IT’S SO TRUE.
Who doesn’t love a delicatessen? What if you were able to give all the secret recipes to a friend this holiday season? For those of us who grew up with Seinfeld, you know that the deli is a part of American culture–The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home, by Nick Zukin and Michael C. Zusman, marries traditional Jewish recipes with a rich history of delicatessens in America and the people who made them what they are today. Grab a copy of this just out cookbook online here for $21.61.
Tired of giving toothbrushes and packs of gum for stocking stuffers? Why not give something that’s actually edible? I truly think these SKOUT Trailbars should be in every stocking this holiday season. Gluten-free, vegan, dairy and soy free, and GMO free, these Trailbars pack 8 grams of protein and are void of refined sugars or fillers. They are easily one of the best tasting protein bars you’ll find on the market and won’t smoosh or melt in your purse or backpack! Grab these bars at local stores (I’ve found them at New Seasons and Trader Joe’s) or at their online shop for $12 for the sampler pack!
Salt & Straw’s Seasonal Set is available in stores and online! Make any ice cream lover’s holiday with this pint pack featuring flavors like Butter-Roasted Chestnuts, Spiked Eggnog, Figgy Pudding, Bourbon Pecan Pie, and my personal favorite, Cocoa Peppermint. This five pack is $65 and sure to instantly popularize you at any party this holiday season!

Alright, so this is kind of a given–who wouldn’t love a food flask!? This Food Flask by Hydro Flask is great for kids too! Hot food has really met its match! This food flask comes in both 17 oz and 12 oz (17 oz is pictured) and will keep food heated for up to three hours. The double wall vacuum insulated technology will keep hot foods steaming hot and cold foods chilled and fresh. The 18/8 food-grade stainless steel interior means non-porous storage with no residual odors or flavors from the previous day’s contents, while our airtight BPA-free, PP#5 lid keeps today’s meal as fresh going out as it was going in. Might as well order them for everyone on your list! Food Flasks range in price from $22-$26 each and can be found online through their website.
